Close to our hotel we stopped in at the recommendation of the hotel. Our waiter Alex was amazing. The food was incredible as well as the dessert. Best meal we have had on this vacation. Wish we had more time to visit a second time.

The other evening, we met friends here for dinner before an event at the nearby Coburn School. There were ten of us. We opted for the Happy Hour Meal. What were served was fine but not remarkable. My partner and I ordered the Salmon Poke Taco but the taco consisted of a loose leaf piece of lettuce, We ate it... More

Went with friends on Friday night. The menu has some interesting items. I had the salmon, which came on spicy lentils- it was very good. I also tasted several other items (3 appetizers and another entree), and all were good. My drink (Blue Mule) was yummy. Service was pretty good. We did not get one of the appetizers we ordered,...

The restaurant is beautiful and eclectic. Marti who helped us make the reservation was so wonderful to work with and made our evening very special. Our server Sarah was just the sweetest and very attentive. The drinks were spectacular, the food was amazing. The short rib was delicious and everyone in our party raved about their meals. The Brussel Sprouts... More

The bar is outside and packed with people in suits doing business, winding down, meeting and greeting all in a casual and fun environment. Inside it's the same. Sit at long tables, benches and chairs. The wait staff is young and bright, the food service is fast. I had the chicken sliders that were fabulous. Also the poke which was... More

I was here twice on a recent trip to LA, both times the drinks were great, but the food was over seasoned with salt. It's a shame too because so many dishes were great ideas, just consistently not well executed.

We went there before going to see a musical. Loved the atmosphere place was lively even on a Tuesday night! Decor was great, chalkboard all around, open kitchen. Great prompt service with an effective waitress named Jackie when we told her we had 30 minutes top. I had a small plate of charred cauliflower with raisins aioli pistachios and eggplant... More

There were no tables available inside when we arrived for lunch and it was a cool day after morning rain but rather than leave or wait, we ate outside after a table and chairs were wiped down for us. Good move because we had such amazing sandwiches. The Billionaire's Club has very tender poached free range chicken, perfectly ripe avocado,... More

This is a good spot for lunch or dinner/drinks in downtown LA. The food is American with interesting twists (Salmon with lentil and carrots; short ribs with green chili mole, to name two). The salads, sandwiches and main courses were all good. Beer, wine and cocktails are available.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
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.
