Bogetta Louie has amazing food choices. For appetizers we had the crab beignets and portobello fries. The crab beignets are bursting with flavor. For the main course we split the Cestini Gambana, a pasta dish with shrimp, pear tomatoes and a saffron, basil tomato sauce....More

Had lunch here before and I remember having a great experience both in the food and service areas. It does get quite loud here so it's difficult to have a conversation. However, their pastries and desserts make up for that small inconvenience. We grabbed dessert...More

We were going to buy some pastries for dessert later on, and we ended up just getting macarons. Things at Bottega Louie are just crazy expensive. Sure, the macarons were tasty little nibbles, but they weren't the most memorable things I've ever had.

This is one of my favorite downtown LA restaurants. The food has consistently been good and I really enjoy seeing the chef cook the meals. The dessert counter has amazing take-out treats. We usually take our out of town guests here because everyone enjoys it....More

As an LA native, this is the BEST place you can eat. No reservations. A little noisey. BUT SO worth it!

The atmosphere was bright, airy, sophisticated yet trendy, and a beautiful white classy theme. The food was excellent! They catered just fine to a dairy allergy.

There is nothing that wasn't absolute perfection in this visit. The restaurant is an elegant blend of French and a modern aesthetic. It has high ceilings with the original corner details, marble counters, French cabinetry, and gorgeous brass and glass accents. The food is amazing....More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
