Very smart place, great service, great food. :) A bit noisy since it is a huge hall but with the friendly staff that made our lunch very good, we were happy there. Worth the price for a special day out.

Totally worth making a reservation and taking some macaroons to go as a souvenir! Very special place - chic and LA posh, lots of locals and tourists alike. Big open kitchen and high ceilings. The service was good, the food I still dream about today, and he atmosphere was fun. Can't wait to go back one day!

My second time Bottega Louie; definitively Id have liked to keep my fidget impression . Good pizza; We ordered Octopus and meatballs to start and not best option. Service is amazing; very friendly and professional staff that makes our dinner very enjoyable

The layout allows a few of my most favorite things to come to fruition- people-watch, open spaces and a beautiful bar set-up. I love the vibe of this place. The espresso martini was yummy too!

The concierge at the Westin Bonaventure recommended this spot when I asked for a good neighbourhood bakery. What a find! Not only do they make french style pastries, too beautiful to bite, the also have a restaurant that was packed with foodies for brunch. I brought home their jam and "library" of gourmet chocolates. I'll be back there again.

My boss took our office here for lunch. It is always busy but we got a table pretty quickly. It's pretty loud, so if that bothers you during a dining experience, it might be best to try somewhere else. The food was quite good. It's a bit pricey so you kind of expect it to be really good. I had... More

I should have taken a hint from the other customers in this establishment who were all ordering Pizza... I dined here with my colleagues after exploring downtown L.A. following our day at the convention center for the OFC International conference. Some had been to Bottega Louie last year, and had a good experience. We were quickly seated (party of 6).... More

Food was excellent. Wait staff was personable but they forgot my order which meant the other 3 in my party had almost finished by the time they got my food to me. Manager came over and apologized but still charged me which frankly for a $200 lunch surprised me.

Loud, large restaurant with high ceilings and pastry shop at entrance. Great for families. Very loud and not the place for intimate dining but food was excellent. Fresh bread and pasta. Kids enjoyed their drinks and meal. Great cocktails and wine list. Many choices on the menu from classic Italian dishes to pizza and seafood. No reservations allowed but we... More

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.
