The more elaborate but immediate descendant of the original, groundbreaking Spago remains the flagship of the ever-growing Wolfgang Puck empire. Yes, it’s full of glamour and glitz, but it nevertheless remains a place where food is taken very seriously. The famous Spago pizzas are available only for lunch (with Puck's smoked-salmon "Jewish pizza" also served at the bar), but it’s almost a shame to waste your appetite on them anyway (almost), given all the first-rate modern Californian–international fare cooked here under the direction of one of the most underrated chefs in America, executive chef Lee Hefter. Veal filet mignon tartare with smoked mascarpone, Dungeness crab risotto, and roasted half Jidori chicken with goat cheese, black truffles, and Yukon potato purée are examples of Hefter's fare.

Foursquare Tips

  • Spago is the spot for power lunches in Beverly Hills.
  • The most famous restaurant in the observable universe, reinvented by Wolfgang Puck and his new chef, Tetsu Yahagi. The thick prime rib steak sings with the flavors of blood, age and char.
  • Quintessential celebrity chef, celebrity crowd dining experience. Ranks very high (based on # of celebrity spottings) in the 2012 Celebrity HotSpots LA Restaurant Guide: Where Your Fave Celebs Dine
  • Wolfgang is an original celebrity chef and his food shows. I enjoyed his spaetzle gnocchi and the table lamps which caused quite a stir when knocked over. -John Somerville, Top Chef
  • Amazing food...no matter what you get. Know for the pizzas, but great salads and pastas too...
  • Wolfgang Puck is actually here a lot of the time!
  • The ultimate Hollywood dinner experience. The food is always special and the service will make you feel like a star. -David Applebaum, Launch My Line
  • Check out this stalwart of Cali cuisine. "The thick prime rib steak sings with the flavors of blood, age and char..." -LA Times on TripExpert
  • Sit out in the courtyard. It's pleasant. Highly recommend the "Jewish pizza" (Pizza w/ smoked salmon)
  • The newly renovated Spago has an all new menu and redesigned decor. Come check it out if you haven't already!
  • A Wolfgang Puck establishment, the award winning Spago lives up to its reputation, with a dining room providing views into the world of cooking as well as art, this dining experience cannot be missed.
  • When owner/chef, Wolfgang Puck and his son, Oliver, stop by for a meal, Oliver orders the truffle pizza. I dont give him any caviar- otherwise hes going to be too expensive to take out, says Puck
  • Try the smoked arctic char
  • Spago is always celebrity packed and one cannot overlook Lee Heffers stellar foods, and sherry yards pastries. Chef Lees foie gras pastrami is one of the most delicious things I have ever eaten. -Ma
  • I'm glad I went to Spago's for dine out. I would have been extremely pissed off if I had paid full price for a meal of such mediocre quality.
  • This ravioli is made with pistachio dough and gets filled with Humboldt Fog goat cheese. Then comes a sprinkling of yet some more English peas. The agnolotti filled with mascarpone is another option.
  • Boasting one of the most extensive wine lists in the city, Spagos Bordeaux selection tops almost any on this coast. Try Bordeaux and transport yourself to Old World indulgence.
  • Try the Spicy Tuna Cone - The BEST!!! Not on the menu FYI but you should definitely get one if not four:)
  • Vibrant colors, an exhibition kitchen, and a wide stone patio with twinkling lights (the power section - you need to reserve this in advance) transport diners a world away. Celeb sightings.
  • Spago is where Wolfgang's legacy of great food (and inventive pizzas) began.
