The Formosa Cafe is a restaurant and bar founded in 1939 and located at 7156 Santa Monica Boulevard at the intersection with North Formosa Avenue, in West Hollywood, California.

The restaurant has a long history of movie star and film industry patronage due to its close proximity to studio lot across the street, which began as the United Artists lot and was later owned by Warner Bros. Generations of movie stars such as Humphrey Bogart and Clark Gable have eaten meals at The Formosa. Frank Sinatra is reputed to have spent many nights at the Formosa in the 1950s, pining over Ava Gardner.

After a brief 2 year hiatus, a complete refurbishment, and a tremendous menu update The Formosa Cafe has returned to serve the Los Angeles community once again.

    Service was lacking (and I am so appreciative of servers during these times!). We were seated at a really weird pushed apart table with all of us in a line - none of the 7 of us could talk to each other except the person next to us. Hostess was 100% unhelpful. We improvised and with our waiter’s help, pushed tables together and it worked. Dirty plates were never cleared. On the plus side: Food is amazing. Ambience is fun and beautiful with so much history. Overall our out of town guests loved it and we had a nice evening.

    I dined alone, craving dumplings or dim sum before a performance at the Pantages. Service was excellent. I enjoyed the Chile pork dumplings, fish dumplings, pork dumplings and soup dumplings. As well as the bao sandwiches with cucumber. Dipping sauces are scrumptious. I was seated upstairs for the first time with a full bar (I love the Mai Thais) with heat lamps. One of my favorite go-toos.

    Nice location, but food was not impressive at all. My friend barely touched her food, she ordered the cold peanut noodles and had 2 bites. I had the walnut shrimp and it was whatever. Steak and broccolini was ok and the fried sesame balls as well. We really wanted to order some baos but were told we can’t have any because they are all reserved for a private party. Long wait times even just for a ginger ale. I guess people go here for the atmosphere and drinks and not for a great food experience.

    I made reservations for Thanksgiving dinner a week before. My reservations were for 5:30 PM, and for a booth we arrived early and was asked to wait at the bar and have a drink. At 5:30 I went to check with the receptionist and she said my booth was not available until 7:30 PM. I did not want to start an argument and ask why I was not notified through email because of the special instructions I asked for, was a booth. I ended up asking her for a table that was available. My fiancé and I were then taken to the train car where we were placed at the smallest table I’ve ever seen literally a foot and a half square I considered it rude and a waste of time. Needless to say, I have no reason to return.

    This place has gone so downhill. The food and service just can’t compare to the ambiance, and even that was lacking because the lights were so bright. The staff was so casually dressed, that the host had on a t-shirt and ripped jeans, while the foodrunner wore an Adidas sweatshirt and Dodgers cap. McDonald’s employees look more polished than this crew. The food was mediocre at best. There are tons of better Asian places in LA, for example, try Cobi’s in Santa Monica. Perhaps Formosa’s biggest sin, I watched two employees “wash” their hands in the men’s restroom with just water because there was no soap. The soap dispenser itself looks dirty and ancient. It probably doesn’t work. Glad I brought my own hand sanitizer. I won’t go back to this place.

    Noisy and requested NO chili flakes and chili peppers but still had them in our dishes. Our waiter (Angel) was great and apologetic and tried very hard to give us what we wanted. Food was plentiful. All in all I would come back.

    The food was delicious, extremely flavorful. The rooftop bar was backed up for some reason, even though there were maybe 20 people on the whole deck. So those took a while. Otherwise I definitely recommend. Though steer clear of the LA tap water, tastes awful.

    My out of town friends wanted to come to Formosa as we all love historic venues. The remodeling done is very impressive and well done. The service could be better…took awhile for the wait staff to come by and then more time to get our order…etc. The food was pricey and you don’t get much and the food wasn’t impressive. We got an order of potstickers which were deep fried and burnt and there were like 6 pieces for $15!! Egg rolls were definitely not made from scratch and for 4 pieces it was $10 and the inside was mushy. The cocktails were slightly better, though some were off balanced and very acidic. Also price range $14-$17/cocktail. There was karaoke? Or hired singer? Anyways they were way too loud and we were screaming just to have a conversation next to each other. It’s a beautiful space and I really wish the management will do something to improve the rest of it.

    When we arrived, no one was around to let us know if we should seat ourselves or wait to be seated. The sweet bartender went and called on the hostess who took us to our seat. Service was a little slow to get started at first (restaurant wasn’t too busy during this time) but once we were tended to it went well. The items on the lunch menu were somewhat limited (not all items were available during that meal hour. We did enjoy the items we ordered that were available. The drinks were delish! When we first arrived, the bartender did mentioned they close the kitchen at 3:30 to prepare for dinner. All in all the staff was friendly and we will be back again but this time for dinner, so we can try the items we really wanted to try that weren’t offered during the day.

    Hello, this is the 5th time in 2 months I was in. Service was a bit funky however in the red car. A dish we def didn't ordered was delivered to us no less than 3 times. It was starting to become hilarious (the French man who was one of my guests remarked when the 3rd server came by with this dish after 2 male servers before her: ah, they figured they would send the pretty blonde to test whether we would finally accept it!). We never got a dish we did order, and finally told the server she might as well cancel it. But I do love the place overall and was happy that on this 5th visit, you finally were not sold out of egg rolls. -R

    First time here I love the location parking is easy from the retail garage across the street. I love the old classic photos and Chinese decor. There’s plenty of seating options and chose to sit in the Trolly area. We had a table for 2 and shared soup dumplings, 3 baos and a plate of chowmein. It was just enough to split no leftovers. Love the original fixtures in the bathroom and decor

    Super place to dine for good Asian food Our waitress, Alex, was terrific. There should be more like her The atmosphere is cool but the one drawback was that they didn’t have any t-shirts in any size but small and for collectors like myself it was a disappointment but what a place; worth the visit

    The waiter was great. The only piece of constructive criticism is that we were two diners and asked if the food we ordered was enough or too much. The waiter said the four dishes we ordered were fine, when in fact two dishes alone was more than enough so we had to cancel one of the four dishes
