This restaurant came highly recommended. I was completely underwhelmed. The waiter didn't suggest to order vegetables and we had to scramble when the food arrived as there was only fish in a sauce with 3 squash gnocchis on the plate. The brussel sprouts were so...More

Went during the week for a business dinner. Busy but we were seated promptly. The food was outstanding! Great restaurant with an upscale atmosphere in the heart of downtown LA.

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
