Issima is that lowkey West Hollywood restaurant you can always count on for a solid cocktail and some Mediterranean small plates by the pool. The buzzy back patio usually has a few tables reserved for walk-ins, but we recommend making a reservation ahead of time if you want to guarantee a poolside table. The pleasant, plant-covered space is intimate enough for dinner dates, and spacious enough for birthday groups, but it’s unclear whether anyone actually comes here to get wet.
