Unless you give yourself enough time, it is not worth it to eat at the main Patina group restaurant. One does not want to have to wait for a table or cram in at the bar and then rush. Not at those prices where you can't experience the taste. They may as well put a Denny's there.

Good outdoor restaurant and options for sandwiches; or the cafe in Disney Hall across the street.

Ample parking for $9 under the Music Center.

Parked in the structure underneath the Music Center. Parking is $20, but worth the convenience.

Enjoyed Brazilian food at the Wood Spoon. The Brazilian chicken pot pie was scrumptious. Crust was light and buttery. Owner makes her own butter daily.

Parking takes time and so does finding your seat. You need to enter the parking structure, at least 30 minutes before the performance to be on time.

If you are picking up tickets at Will Call, allow yourself some extra time to stand in line for popular events.

Parking at the music center is easy if you don't mind paying the flat $9 fee. Try to arrive early. L.A. traffic on Friday evening is always heavy, so we arrived later than expected. We entered into the music center garage on Grand and after being directed through a labyrinth of structures, we ended up parking near Hill Street (still in the same underground maze). End result: We had to trek it back to the venue, which left us little time to pick up tickets from will call.

The dinner at the outdoor Patina is good, but for a snack there is a good Taco stand nearby

Parked right at the venue. No issues. Very convenient. $9 rate. Ate at the venue. Expensive but was great watching celebs walking by as we ate.

There are restaurants all around the Music Center for a nice sit down meal. There is also food available on the plaza itself. In the theatre there is a bar with snacks available. Food and drink are expensive.

parking is plentiful but somewhat expensive. However, the parking structure does start to fill quickly so you can be directed quite a distance and have to navigate stairs, escalators, or elevators or a combination of the three. Always note where you are parked so you can find your space afterward, keep your parking ticket handy (some exits require it) and give yourself lots of time!! If you are late to a ballet, they will most likely not allow to you be seated until the first intermission.

The weather was warm.. I wore dress and heels. It's fun to dress up for the ballet, it's a great opportunity for a little princess fantasy. .

I wore A dress and brought a light coat because the venue gets chilly with the AC..

Ate lunch nearby at The Grand Central Market and walked over to Music Center having taken the train downtown.
