Going there makes me very happy. The desserts are fabulous. The wait for seating is horrible. Wished they can do something about the wait.

This place is incredibly popular, which makes the place really noisy. However the atmosphere is pretty good if you don't mind the noise. We had an incredibly good waiter who was very attentive. The kitchen is in the middle of the restaurant which is really cool! The food came out so quickly too. Now, the dessert....... YUM! So many options,... More

When you walk in its a restaurant, cafe, bar, patisserie... Overwhelming aromas coming from all directions. You don't book so we walked in and were swiftly shown a table. Excellent service & excellent food! Lobster Nage was particularly brilliant for under $10. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant if you are visiting Downtown LA.

Been here several times during the year whether during the week for dinner or over the weekend for Brunch/Lunch. Good for couples, families and or a dating destination. Parking structures a block away in each direction and not an issue. Always crowded but worth the wait. Service is friendly and attentive and the servers are happy to provide recommendations you...

I often eat at Bottega Louie for an early pre-theater dinner. I am never disappointed. Yes, the dining room is crazy loud. And it's always enormously busy. Oh, and it's NOT the prototypical red-check table cloth and hanging chianti bottle trattoria. Definitely NOT the place to go for a quiet, intimate dinner for two--it's big and bright and bold. No...

Decent enough pizza. Long wait for a table. Service just OK. Maybe they are just very busy; but, not a lot of customer service.

We came here as a party of five for dinner. There was a wait of about half an hour before we could be seated, but the bar area was comfortable and fun so the time went quickly. When we were seated our waitress was attentive and gave us great advice about menu selections. We split several appetizers but our favorites... More

Stumbled into this place near our hotel for lunch and weren't disappointed. Everything looked amazing and tasted just as good. Burrata amazing. I had the tagliatelle and it was so tasty. Their homemade bread was so good. Friend had carbonara and just as delicious. We took desserts to go and omg. Tiramisu was one of the best. Only downfall was... More

Calling a donut a beignet and charging $3.50 for it doesn't make it a beignet. It makes it an expensive donut. Chocolate chip cookie was bland and forgettable.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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 in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
