20 Restaurants To Celebrate Father's Day In Los Angeles

Father's Day is the perfect time to treat your dad to a special meal. While some fathers consider themselves to be true grill masters, encourage your dad or father figure to take a load off and put down the spatula. From timeless steakhouses to upscale restaurants with epic views, Los Angeles is home to many great eateries that Dad will love on his special day. That said, knowing where to go is imperative when navigating the city's oversaturated food scene.

If you want to surprise the man in your life with something more unique, consider taking him to a 5-star Japanese steakhouse for a true yakiniku experience. Prefer to treat your dad to a boozy brunch? Enjoyed a buffet experience complete with bubbly mimosas or spicy Bloody Marys. That said, we've rounded up the best restaurants for Father's Day in LA so that you can treat your dad to a meal fit for a king.

Lawry's The Prime Rib

As the name suggests, Lawry's The Prime Rib is famous for its tender and juicy prime rib. This Beverly Hills restaurant has cozy booths, white tablecloths, and antique paintings that work together to create a transportive atmosphere reminiscent of classic fine dining restaurants. Those that dine on Father's Day can expect to find several specials in addition to some of the restaurant's most popular dishes. The special roasted prime rib for Father's Day is made from Akaushi cattle and is available in four different cuts including the California cut, Lawry cut, Diamond Jim Brady cut, and Beef Bowl cut.

Each cut is served alongside Lawry's famous spinning bowl salad, mashed potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, and horseradish. The Lawryy's Meat & Potato martini is shaken table-side and is a great sipper before moving on to some red wine.

Hudson House

Hudson House in West Hollywood has a timeless charm that is met with a modern twist. This Dallas transplant offers a cozy yet elevated atmosphere where Dad can kick back and relax with one of the restaurant's signature martinis in hand. When it comes to the food, start off on a lighter note with one of the raw bar appetizers. If your father isn't a fan of oysters, the pressed tuna sushi is a simple yet fresh starter. Prefer a little heat? The spicy salmon on crispy rice with a gochujang aioli is a can't-miss dish.

The cheeseburger is paired with a massive pickle half coated in Old Bay, making it a main that might just steal your Dad's heart. However, the French dip with aged Gruyère is another favorite.


When it comes to Japanese steakhouses, NIKU X is a top-tier choice. This high-end restaurant offers an elevated yakiniku experience in DTLA at the Wilshire Grand Center. With two different tasting menus to choose from, NIKU X offers an unforgettable experience for your dad on Father's Day. The $245 Yakiniku Tasting Menu gives you a decadent taste of both land and sea and lets you watch as each piece of meat is grilled to perfection at your table.

The premium cuts include everything from Wagyu beef tongue to A5 ribeye, and the meal ends with an out-of-this-world lavender cake. The Tomahawk Tasting Menu for two has nine courses and three different tiers ranging from the $335 Fresh Supreme Wagyu option to the $499.

The Castaway

The Castaway is one of the most popular places for brunch in the valley on a regular Sunday, so you can expect only the best when dining on Father's Day. The four-course Father's Day brunch costs $96 per adult and features some of The Castaway's most beloved dishes. Enjoy sipping on a dragon fruit and watermelon mimosa while chowing down on the steak and eggs Benedict or fried chicken and waffles.

The Castaway is also hosting a seasonal dinner for Father's Day. Since the dinner menu is very steak-focused, this is the perfect opportunity to get your dad in front of a juicy and tender steak with a glass of red wine in hand. If steak isn't his thing, the Icelandic salmon with a garlic caper butter sauce is sure to hit the spot.

The elevated carving station will be serving rotisserie prime rib and baby back ribs, but traditional breakfast items like eggs Benedict and omelets will also be available.

One thing that sets this brunch apart from the others is the fact that alcohol is included in the price. Enjoy an endless flow of martinis, mimosas, Manhattans, and more. Just be sure to save some room for the dessert station.

The afternoon tea service is another fun way to sip and savor but must be reserved in advance, so be sure to plan ahead. If you're looking to enjoy a boozy brunch for Father's Day, order the orange espresso martini for some booze and a boost.


If epic views are at the top of your list when it comes to planning the perfect Father's Day dinner, make a reservation at 71Above. The geometric ceiling in the dining room is breathtaking, but the surrounding city views are unbelievable. Though the restaurant cannot guarantee window-side tables, be sure to put in a request when making a reservation to increase your chances.

Choose from dishes like hiramasa crudo and crispy octopus for your first course while sipping on a glass of vino from the expert wine list. The main course options include everything from vegetarian-friendly stuffed cabbage to A5 Japanese wagyu. Finally, indulge in a rose water pavlova or guava granita for dessert.

Taylor's Steakhouse

As one of the best steakhouses in Los Angeles, Taylor's Steakhouse is a tried and true classic that Dad is sure to love. Thankfully, there are two locations in LA, making Taylor's a bit more accessible for devoted fans. Whether you're visiting the La Cañada Flintridge location or the DTLA location, you're in for an unforgettable steak dinner. Though you can order a la carte, the three-course dining prime rib dinner is only available at the La Cañada Flintridge location, but it's a great deal.

That said, other menu highlights include the jumbo bacon-wrapped scallops, steak house onion rings, and the warm sourdough bread and butter for starters. While the hand-carved London broil is the steakhouse's signature dish, onion-smothered petit filet mignon is another can't-miss entrée.

San Laurel

San Laurel by José Andrés is a beautiful restaurant that sits on the 10th floor of the Conrad Los Angeles. The outdoor area of San Laurel offers uninterrupted views of the Walt Disney Concert Hall, creating the ideal backdrop for a special dinner with Dad. If your father is a fan of mezcal, the Jamón & Mezcal Experience is sure to be a winner. Each variety of jamón is perfectly paired with an accompanying mezcal. Some jamón options include a jamón taco and croqueta, both of which are wonderfully executed.

However, if you'd prefer to order off the regular menu instead, there are plenty of solid options. The duck breast is a spice-forward favorite while the meat and potatoes for two is perfect for a dynamic duo.

The Palm Beverly Hills

For years, The Palm has been a go-to restaurant for locals seeking a quality piece of steak. Despite the fact that the original opened in 1926 in New York City, The Palm in Beverly Hills has become a consistent favorite since it relocated from West Hollywood in 2014. The Hollywood-inspired mural and photos in the dining room set the scene for a timeless steak dinner on Father's Day, but the extensive menu features tons of different options for every kind of diet.

If you prefer seafood, explore the sea bass Oscar with a rich Béarnaise sauce or Sicilian salmon with fresh chimichurri. That said, steak is definitely the main draw, and you can't go wrong with the eight-ounce center-cut filet or the prime New York strip. 

Dan Tana's

Dan Tana's is one of the most iconic and historic restaurants in West Hollywood. The yellow exterior is met with a deep red interior that features checkered tablecloths and art-covered walls. The menu focuses on no-fuss Italian classics, and dining here feels as though you've stepped back in time to the Golden Age of Hollywood. It's important to note that the menu is huge, so prepare to be slightly overwhelmed.

When it comes to appetizers, the steamed clams and fried ravioli are perfect for sharing, but the antipasto is also a solid starter. Enjoy the best of both worlds by ordering one pasta with red sauce and one with white sauce. Since Dan Tana's is famous for its veal, don't miss out on one of the veal scaloppines with fresh peppers.

Caviar Kaspia

Looking to treat your father to something extra fancy? Caviar Kaspia is a Paris original that has made itself right at home on Melrose Place. As the name suggests, caviar is the star of the show at this stunning and vibrant restaurant. That said, expect to spend a pretty penny. Though you can visit for dinner, Caviar Kaspia is hosting a special a la carte Father's Day brunch on the turquoise patio on the 18th.

Enjoy a glass of Sancerre as you indulge in delicious delights like the caviar grilled cheese with toasted brioche and the marinated hamachi crudo. However, you can't come to Caviar Kaspia without trying the iconic caviar-topped twice-baked potato. The endive salad is another refreshing starter but the creamy angel hair pasta with caviar is a must-order.

L'antica Pizzeria Da Michele

Put an elevated twist on a classic pizza dinner by taking your dad to L'Antica Pizzeria Da Michele. Since the original L'Antica Pizzeria Da Michele is from Naples, guests at the Hollywood location are able to enjoy the exact same slices that they would in Italy. The cozy string light-covered patio is perfect for enjoying a warm June evening with a bottle of wine on the table.

Though you can't go wrong with any of the pizzas, the basic Margherita is far from boring. That said, you can't step things up with Margherita Sbagliata, which is made with a smoked fior de latte. The $65 truffle pizza is well worth the price, and if you're treating your father to something special, it doesn't get much better than freshly shaved truffles.

Chi Spacca

There's nothing quite as comforting and classic as a true Italian feast. Chi Spacca is home to the first "dry cure" program in the city, so it should come as no surprise to learn that this Italian eatery is all about the meat. That said, if your father loves to start his meal with a glass of wine and a charcuterie board, Chi Spacca should definitely be your Father's Day destination.

The walls are lined with bottles of wine, and while Chi Spacca does have a solid list of cocktails, vino is much more the vibe. In addition to some charcuterie, order the grilled octopus for the table, along with Spacca Caesar salad. After indulging in the lamb shepherd's pie and milk-roasted pork loin, cure your sweet tooth with the butterscotch budino.

The Musso & Frank Grill

Looking to take your dad somewhere with a timeless vibe and menu? The Musso & Frank Grill has been catering to Hollywood's most elite members since 1919. As one of the oldest restaurants in all of Los Angeles, it is rich in history and character, and its elevated ambiance, attentive service, and killer martinis are sure to put a smile on your father's face. Though you'll most likely want to order steak as your entrée, the Musso's traditional steak tartare is a can't-miss appetizer that is served with a creamy quail egg that is still in the shell.

The baked escargot is a butter French favorite that is also worth ordering, but it doesn't get more classic than a timeless shrimp cocktail. Musso & Frank is also known for its daily specials, and Sunday's is a crispy duck confit that is well worth considering. That said, if Dad's heart is set on steak, the ribeye cap steak should be at the top of his list.

Park's BBQ

Give your dad the gift of some bold and tasty Korean BBQ on Father's Day. Parks BBQ first opened in LA's Koreatown in 2003 and has remained a local favorite ever since. This woman-owned restaurant was started by renowned Chef Jenee Kim, and it's the perfect place for Dads looking to have an interactive and filling Father's Day dinner. The meat options seem virtually endless, and you can choose everything from prime beef tongue to ribeye bulgogi to gal-bi.

Other non-red meat BBQ options include shrimp, pork belly, and even pork neck. The spicy beef stew is sure to provide a little heat, while the japchae noodles are a savory and sweet side. Pair your meal with some Sapporo or sake and enjoy an authentic Korean BBQ experience.

Lunasia Dim Sum

Does your dad love dim sum? Lunasia Dim Sum offers a premium experience in the heart of Pasadena. If you're dining with a larger family or group, dim sum is especially great since you'll get the chance to try so many different dishes. That said, definitely start off with one of the Chinese teas, which are only $1.68 per person. The menu is conveniently organized so that you can clearly browse and choose what you'd like. The steamed section features a couple of must-order items like the jumbo shrimp har-gow and the truffle mushroom dumplings.

Of course, no dim sum dinner is complete without some BBQ pork boa, so be sure to get at least two orders. The rice noodle roll with crispy shrimp, pan-fried turnip cakes, and Peking duck with steamed buns are also top-notch choices.


When it comes to French restaurants in LA, Bicyclette is one of the best. If your father prefers an elegant meal with an atmosphere to match, make your reservation ASAP. This transportive eatery covers all of the classics, but no French dinner would be complete without a baguette to start. In addition to quality Normandy butter, guests can also request to pair their baguette with sardines, camembert cheese, or even a duck liver mousse.

Other notable appetizers include escargot, baby beets salad, and tuna tartare with potato chips. The Liberty Farms duck leg confit is a beloved entree, but the beef short rib is a hearty dish that is straight out of your dad's dreams. Finally, be sure to end your meal with one of Bicyclette's seasonal tarts.

Alta Adams

Alta Adams is a comfort food haven that is located in the historic West Adams neighborhood of Los Angeles. The soul food-focused menu has a slightly elevated twist that makes each dish a delightful experience. Looking to celebrate Father's Day and Juneteenth at the same time? Alta Adams is hosting a Backyard BBQ Buffet on the 18th, and the menu is sure to make your mouth water.

The 90-minute dining experience is set to feature brisket, ribs, sausage, shrimp skewers, and more. Plus, no BBQ would be complete without some sensational sides, so expect everything from potato salad to baked beans. There are spots available in the dining room and on the patio, but be sure to book your reservation as soon as possible since spots are filling quickly.
