Renaissance is a restaurant located in the Manor Hotel of the Celebrity Centre International (formerly Château Élysée) in Hollywood, California.[2]

The restaurant is currently closed until February 28, 2018 due to "renovations".[3]

Dining Professionals of America has recognized it as one of the top 40 restaurants in Los Angeles.[4] The California Restaurant Writers Association has awarded it “Four-Stars” in 2002 and the “Gold Award of Merit” was awarded in 2003 by the Southern California Restaurant Writers.[1]

The restaurant, open to the general public, has been frequented by movie executives, agents, directors, and actors. Writer and director Julien Nitzberg had his 40th birthday dinner at the restaurant.

It features a terrace with carved-wood chairs that are reproductions of the Louis XIV style furniture in the Château Élysée.[5] The restaurant's gardens have been described as "lush and green" and contain a waterfall and gazebo.[1] Visiting guests can view an original Chateau Elysee dinner menu from 1937 on display.[1]
