American
Chef Brandon Kida, best known as the executive chef at Hinoki & the Bird in Century City and more casual restaurant Go-Go Bird in Culver City, brings Japanese American cooking to Hollywood.

Gunsmoke is named after a western radio show that was recorded at CBS Radio studio where the restaurant is now housed.

While Kida’s previous restaurants incorporated some of the chef’s Japanese heritage, Gunsmoke is the first one fully dedicated to serving dishes inspired by Kida’s second-generation Nikkei experience. A dish of local raw tuna layered with country ham and green strawberry best encapsulates the chef’s culinary point of view at Gunsmoke.

Rhino Williams, proprietor of Lost Property Bar in Hollywood, is charged with the beverage menu. Gunsmoke’s signature cocktail — a Kyoto ice tea — comes with vodka, gin, rum, tequila, and house made cantaloupe soda.

    This restaurant is superb! Every aspect of our dining experience was way beyond expectations. The food was to die for—so very unusual too. Flavors were perfect for each dish. Wonderful staff—friendly and attentive to every detail. Beautiful pati setting. We’ll go back many times!

    Amazing restaurant takes Nikkei food to a great level. We are going back for the dishes we couldn’t fit in. First time there and it will be on my list of great restaurants in the area. Good food, beautiful place and attentive staff.

    Gunsmoke is a really special place! The restaurant has a cool vibe both inside and outside, the staff is awesome, and the food was AMAZING. Seriously— go eat there. They also have an affordable tasting menu that was super generous! I love tasting menus, so when we saw that on the menu for under 90 dollars (in LA! at a gorgeous restaurant!), we went for it. Absolutely delicious, surprising, fun, and filling. We will definitely be back :-)

    Food was nothing special. There wasn’t a single dish that stood out in terms of flavor or presentation. Service was meh, servers dropped of each dish without explanation.

    Was disappointed. There were only three entrees on the menu and the one that I had, the lamb sisis, was oversalted and made me feel sick during the middle of the night. It felt like the restaurant was trying to cut corners on the food because of cost inflation. Cute setting and feels hip but definitely will not return

    2 of us ate out on the patio and it was lovely! We could have a nice conversation, the servers were very pleasant, the food was delicious! The cabbage salad was beautiful and really delicious as advertised. The oysters were cold, but come with a mignonette already on top rather than allowing us to season as desired. The artichoke fritter was crunchy on the outside, mostly fully cooked inside but did not taste of artichoke. The sauce and salad with the rockfish was spicy, fresh, and fantastic! We had the strawberry cake for dessert which wasn't overly heavy, and the sauces and textures were a lovely sweet combination. Very few other diners were there - go so we can keep this restaurant around! It's great.

    We wanted something unique and despite the limited number of reviews we were intrigued. It was not disappointing as the food is very tasty, innovative. They revisit some classical American fares (Caesar salad, wings …) with an excellent warm cabbage salad, crispy quails…portions are also generous for this level of quality. The shiitake mushrooms very tasty as well as the lamb! Basically everything we tried was simply great including a few cocktails. No complaint on the service too. The only bémol is their wine list that needs to be upgraded to match the food quality to complete the great experience.

    We were delighted. The food was delicious...very European/Michelin Star quality. Not a great quantity but an amazing quality. We had a few things from each category and shared them "family style". This was a great way to try many of the different delectable and savory menu items...highly recommended since each dish was better than the previous. And a big shout-out to our incredibly happy server, Roselyn! She was so enthusiastic and catering to our every need - always with a big smile. What a wonderful experience!

    The restaurant has everything going for it, food, ambience, service, tipping policy except for the loud music! It would have been so much more pleasant and enjoyable if the music was turned down. An evening out means relaxation for us….

    Great new spot in Hollywood. Food was delicious all around and for a brand new spot the service was great. The bartender, Cody, made us a special drinks off menu and really wowed us. It tied the whole experience together.
