Comfort Zone
Spago, the original gem in Wolfgang Puck's culinary crown, is a fine-dining restaurant without the pretense. If you're not sure what to wear, though, or where to sit, or if you have other questions about the experience that have not yet been answered, please read on.

    
    Reservations
Because this restaurant is so popular, not only with the celebrity set, but also with business people and ladies who lunch, reservations are strongly recommended. Spago takes reservations for the current and next month; on the first of each month, the staff will begin accepting reservations for the next one.

Seating
The seating for 277 at this 11,500-square-foot restaurant is intimate. Tables for two are spaced very near one another and are sized at about 30 inches square. Chairs are ample, and angled for a more comfortable dining experience. There is banquette seating available in addition to upholstered wooden chairs, both with and without arms.

Atmosphere
The atmosphere at Spago is jubilant, as is any place frequented by Hollywood's who's who. It's not the place to go for a quiet romantic meal, but rather to see and be seen while enjoying some excellent food. While the restaurant is mood-lit and comfortable, because there are so many tables, you might want to save private conversations for later. Music - recorded, not live - plays throughout the dining room; during one visit, to the restaurant was playing The Rolling Stones by 7:30 p.m.

Restrooms
The restrooms are easily accessible off the main dining area.

   
     
    
Dress Code
Although the dress code is technically sportswear or casual clothing, you'll likely notice that Spago attracts a slightly more dressy crowd. Jackets and ties are not required, though a gentleman might feel more comfortable with them on.

Parking
Valet parking is available for $6.50 per car.
