5 Dog Friendly Hotel Restaurants Not To Miss in Los Angeles
There’s something about hotel restaurants that I just LOVE. Walking through a hotel lobby to get to your table just feels more chic. In Los Angeles, there are plenty of restaurants that offer outdoor patios with a spectacular, sunny view but which ones allow pups?
Well, we recently did a little food tour with Watson & Walls to scope out the best dog friendly restaurants in Los Angeles—all inside beautiful dog friendly hotels with gorgeous decor.
Viviane at Avalon Beverly Hills
The Avalon is tucked away like a hidden gem in the residential neighborhood of Beverly Hills—and what a gem! Step into the world of the 1950s to a hourglass-shaped pool, mid-century meets modern vibes (designed by famed Kelly Wearstler) and old school California cool.
Grab your sunglasses because Viviane‘s outdoor patio is poolside. We loved the California-inspired cuisine and the matching backdrop! The food was yummy with Mediterranean-inspired dishes like hummus, olives and herbed carrots dressed with tahini. By the way, if you decide to book a night with your dog at the hotel, the Avalon welcomes two pets up to 40 lbs for an additional fee of $100 per pet, per stay.

FIG at Fairmont Miramar Santa Monica
The Fairmont is the hotel you choose if you want to be oceanside. FIG is located inside the hotel with a beautiful patio facing the beach. Locals know this spot all too well, as the Happy Hour is legendary! From 5-6pm, get a table at the FIG for 50% off the menu (even bottles!) and enjoy the beautiful view.
We love this spot for all the reasons above, including the delicious food. Did you know you can even order some dishes for the pups? Try the Tail Wagger (beef tenderloin, sweet potato + green beans), Rise & Fido (scrambled eggs, carrots + brown rice) or the Bow Wow (organic chicken, potato + peas).
If you’re looking to stay, the Fairmont just introduced their new Dog Be With You program which offers free charge for pets, all natural dog treats, a fluffy dog bed, dog toys and daily in-room breakfast for both you and your furry one!

Cattle & Claw at Sofitel Los Angeles
Cattle & Claw has become one of our favorites in town. Why? SO MUCH LOBSTER. Lobster pizza, lobster rolls, lobster tacos, lobster & waffles, lobster Bloody Mary’s. Yeah, that’s a thing. Alongside all of that are huge, juicy burgers (hence the name Cattle) and perfect french fries.
The outdoor patio is also a good one–blocked off from the traffic of Beverly Blvd (the hotel is located right across the street from the Beverly Center) with spacious grounds so you don’t feel like you’re disturbing your neighbor.
The Sofitel hotel is also dog-friendly with no extra charge for pets–cheers to that!
Mardi at Palihouse West Hollywood
Step inside the Palihouse to Mardi and it’s like you’ve walked into a garden jungalow party! We loved sitting at our marble table in this gorgeous oasis with an aperol spritz in hand.
Such a great little place to escape in the heart of West Hollywood. I could see myself coming back with the pups and working away in a cozy corner on my laptop.
By the way, Palihouse West Hollywood welcomes one pet of any size $150 per stay. They also offer Pet Packages that include locally sourced PLATO treats, Max-Bone dog beds, ceramic dog bowls and complimentary waste bags for walks.
Nelson’s at Terranea Rancho Palos Verdes
One of the biggest resorts in Southern California, Terranea boasts 102 acres and is perched atop cliffs alongside the Pacific Ocean. The views are just spectacular.
Enjoy a getaway (for Angelenos, it’s only a 30 minute drive from LAX and feels like you are worlds away from LA) with tons of room and plenty of hikes with your pup. Hungry? Grab a bite at dog-friendly Nelson’s and take in the sunset.
For hotel stays, Terranea welcomes two pets of any size for a $150 fee.
