Yes, UWink was probably the worst service ever. It's a cool concept and food was pretty good, but the service was horrid.
I've eaten at Trastevere and it was wonderful. Great service and great food. I've also eaten at The Grill, which was also very good. As OldSchoolMickey mentioned, there's also the Disney Soda Fountain which is literally right across the street. They have great ice cream but they're food is so-so. Make sure and visit though, the store is adorable. If you don't mind walking just a little bit Mel's Diner is across the street from H & H Center. It's a fun place and always tasty.
Good morning, son
In twenty years from now
Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
And I can tell you 'bout today
And how I picked you up and everything changed
It was pain
Sunny days and rain
I knew you'd feel the same things...
The French Crepe Company in H&H is quite good (and also had great waffles), and I'm dittoing the recommendation for Mel's Diner, just diagonal and a couple doors down on Highland (behind Ripley's and the Hollywood Museum) from the H&H complex. And Disney Fountain for ice cream, natch.
The Grill and Koji's Shabu Shabu receive high marks from me as well as Johnny Rocket's. Trastevere was pretty good when I went and it was good service but I think it was because we were the only ones in the restaurant. The Soda Fountain deserves a visit too, even if it is only for desert.
Thanks for the reviews.. I'm thinking about trying out Mel's diner. Looks like a cute place with some history and fairly easy parking.
What are the prices like there and what would you recommend to get?
darkbeer I did see the pig n whistle near the egyptian right? I thought about that place.. nice historic building..
so its ruby's, pig n whistle, and mel's.
haha which place is the cheapest?
Yes, you are right, next to the Egyptian.
They are all about the same price, I placed the web link in the earlier post to the Pig 'N Whistle which has a menu with prices.
A couple of other places to check out, the Snow White Cafe (which is basically a Bar), just for the drawings, and the Stella Adler Acting school, both basically across the street from the Pig 'N Whistle.
