I took a dish of supposedly fresh halibut. I got a iper spiced small portion of halibut with roasted corn: $42. I was hungry and I had it. Limited menu. Not worth the price

The service was excellent throughout the entire evening. Our waiter was helpful and the wine steward helped us pick a great wine to pair with my wife's cioppino and my sea bass. Would highly recommend.

Food was delicious, our waitress was very nice. Dessert was so good. The food runner has a poor attitude, never picked up empty dishes. He placed our dishes at edge of table and walked away, found out later he’s been working for near 20 years....More

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

Love the raw oysters, the clam chowder and the cooked shellfish in ice. Haven’t had much of the grilled fish yet. Great service here. Ask for a sea view table when you reserve.
