Reviews - What do customers think about Los Angeles 2008: A Selection of Restaurants & Hotels (Michelin Red Guides)?
Not very representative of LA Feb 18, 2008
I have bought the guides for SF, NY, Vegas, and LA. While the ones for most of the cities are very good, I think the LA one disappoints. I know that LA has many more restaurants that could have made the guide. Perhaps not starred, but better than many of the non-starred selections in the guide. I realize that a big portion of the problem is that the scale of LA makes it hard to cover, but some effort should have been made to be more comprehensive prior to publication.
Travel for food in LA? Jan 7, 2008
Tried 5 restaurants from different categories and they are all good in general. I think most of the restaurants on the guide worth a try and the 1 star Japanese restaurant was the best out of the five. However, I wouldn't rely on this guide to find authentic Chinese food. I personally think there are couple really good Chinese restaurants in San Gabriel and Alhambra areas that were not covered in this LA guide.
I would stay clear of this guide Nov 23, 2007
Littered with errors, this book does not meet my expectations. With a poor selection of Chinese restaurants, incorrect city names (i.e. somehow the City of West Hollywood became Hollywood, community in the City of Los Angeles) and poor reviews containing no substance. I would stay clear of this in favor of Zagats.
It is clear this book was rushed and the product shows.
