  • Be prepared for the elevator music as soon as the door closes :-)
  • Weird joint. Jetsons meets Applebee's. But cool view for cocktails while you wait...
  • Go here really high. Trust me.
  • Beware the wine by the glass. It is all at least a day old right now and the bartender refuses to open a new bottle.. fail
  • Go to Terminal 6 arrivals and cross the street towards the parking garage. Head around the corner towards the Jetsons-looking building.
  • The airport makes you feel like an ant; this perch makes you feel like an eagle.
  • Great place to meetup for business or pleasure. Reminds me of a 60's Jetsons theme or someplace from Woody Allen's "Sleeper". Awesome view of airport. Avail for private parties too.
  • Ok came here to soak it all in & decided to order 2 entrees - seared tuna & grilled chicken. Both were surprisingly good and huge portions. I didn't have a drink but the wine pours looked generous!
  • Ask for a window seat and watch the planes come in.
  • I love the 90s. Retrofuture!
  • Only 3 parking spots. =(
  • Bar menu is cheaper and the burger is delish. Great Bloody Marys and lemonade. Awesome/funny bartender. Jetsons would be proud.
  • Denny's meets Austin Powers. Psychedelic, retro feel. OK at night with the lights, but seating is not comfortable and wine selection not great. Better than being in a terminal though. Sport on TV.
  • Like to overpay for weak food/service w/ a cool view? Valet only $6. Good spot for kids. Best reason to come is probably just to peep the view. Designed by imagineers, but I can't imagine returning.
  • Eep opp ork ah ah! Th cobb salad is out of this world! (Get it?)
  • No breakfast on Sunday. You have been warned.
  • Go for the "Duck"!, YUMMM..... Kross+ www.PhiLLKross.com
  • Food is over priced. You are really paying for the view. Fun place but don't expect any culinary delights.
  • Food is meh, but the view is great with airplanes and runaway, and decor is very interesting. The food wasnt fantastic but not at all bad either. Better than sitting at the airport w/ nothing to do.
  • Worth a visit - if just to escape LAX for a while.
