15 Stunning Los Angeles Restaurant Wedding Venues
Wedding season is upon us...
1. Cafe Pinot
Sitting adjacent to the historic LA Library, Café Pinot hosts its weddings on the grounds of Maguire Gardens. With garden seating and skyscraper views, the venue has a sort of urban oasis feel, and comes with stellar French fare. [Photo: Luminaire Images]
2. Cast at Viceroy Santa Monica
Plenty of beachy vibes are to be had at The Viceroy Santa Monica’s Cast Restaurant. The poolside space is draped in sailcloth for a chic al fresco reception. The space accommodates up to 120 guests for dinner and dancing.
Cicada sports some serious 1920s Art Deco style. Located in the Oviatt building, an opulent dining room with old-growth oak columns and gold leaf ceilings makes for quite an evening of vintage elegance.
4. Cliff's Edge
Cliff’s Edge’s ethereal patio lit with bistro lighting creates romantic vibes that are truly unparalleled. Secluded upper terraces fit small wedding parties or pre-wedding festivities. Major bonus points for the creative dishes with gorgeous plating that comes by way of chef Vartan Abgaryan.
This 1948 institution is the definition of Old Hollywood glam with its red booths, lush outdoor patio, and brick fireplaces. Weddings here take guests back to the time of Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe, who frequented the restaurant in the Rat Pack glory days.
6. Faith & Flower
There is no question Faith & Flower is truly one of the most stunning restaurants in the city. The private dining room dripping in vintage glamour makes for a gorgeous intimate wedding reception, but the expansive dining room marked by chandeliers and understated green and yellow hues is exceptionally conducive to larger fêtes.
7. Fig & Olive
Fig & Olive transports wedding parties to the Mediterranean without the lengthy flight. The 8,000 square foot restaurant features a light-filled space, double height ceilings, two floors of dining, and rosemary-lined patio that fits over 400 guests.
8. Michael's Santa Monica
Santa Monica, CA 90403
Michael’s Santa Monica has been a longstanding Westside event since it opened back in 1979. Ceremonies are held in an intimate garden, with receptions following at the terrace and bar. With lush greenery and contemporary California cuisine, it’s a rather turnkey solution for a low-maintenance affair.
Nestled within the deconsecrated cathedral the Vibiana, Redbird is a natural choice for a Downtown wedding. Weddings can be held within the restaurant or the adjacent event space with indoor seating for up to 400. The versatile venue is equipped with catering that comes by way of chef Neal Fraser.

One of the most unique spaces in LA also happens to have some rather exceptional fare. Republique, with its soaring ceilings, Gothic arches, and highly Instagrammable tile, makes for one rather dramatic wedding venue. Guests won’t be mad about the food, either. [Photo: Sierra Prescott]
11. Saddle Peak Lodge
Saddle Peak Lodge offers a rustic atmosphere right in Malibu Canyon. Outdoor ceremonies have panoramic views of the hills, and both indoor and outdoor spaces can fit up to 200 guests.
12. The Edison
Originally built back in 1910 as Downtown LA’s first private power plant, The Edison is certainly a more unique venue to host a wedding. Boasting Art Nouveau and Industrial Gothic design and a slew of entertainment options including big bands and cigar rollers in a legal smoking room, it is quite the place to take a ‘20s-themed party to the next level.
13. The Hungry Cat
Beach-loving couples will find a happy home at The Hungry Cat Santa Monica. The 30-person private dining room has exceptional ocean views, that are made only better when paired with David Lentz’s seafood-centric cuisine. A full buyout can accommodate up to 125. [Photo: Andrew Stuart Photography]

Los Angeles, CA 90038
This repurposed one hundred-year-old Craftsman bungalow has the warmth of a home, but comes with cuisine by executive chef Kevin Kathman, formerly of The French Laundry. The bright space accommodates parties from 30 to 250 people.
15. WP24 by Wolfgang Puck
Downtown’s WP24 serves Wolfgang Puck’s modern interpretation of Chinese cuisine. The fine dining restaurant on the 24th floor of The Ritz-Carlton has spectacular views of the LA skyline, and makes for quite the cosmopolitan wedding suited to a party of up to 150 people.
