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.

Was in LA for a business trip, staying at Omni Hotel. Came here for mid-afternoon meal and loved it! Service was top notch (thank you, Daniel!), and the food was fab. Started with side salad and then had Chicken and Egg Rice Bowl. It was delicious. Beer selection rocks too. If you are nearby, totally worth the trip!

The outside patio is unique, with some soft couches and no walls so you can get full views of the downtown buildings and you can do some serious people watching.

Went here after a conference for dinner. Peers had steak, but I tried the fish. Oops. Feel like I paid a lot and I didn't like the experience. Dont have the salmon, have the steak.

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.
