My husband saw this restaurant in the movie Pretty Woman and wanted to come here to celebrate our friend's daughter's birthday. The interior is charming but different from the movie considering the movie is 27 years old. You're still able to recognize it even though...More

Service was amazing and the food was excellent. They just got a new chef from Italy and the eggplant and bolognese dishes were great. They have music and dancing of the weekends. It was orginally a haberdashery from the 1920s and had 30,000 pounds of...More

If you are enthralled with a genuine Art Deco vintage setting, this is the place. The food is above average - not stellar - but, oh the experience of being there will thrill. This is a special occasion place and very romantic. Many celebrities rent...More

This is one of the hardest places to review as there is a stark difference between ambience, location, beauty of Cicada and the very poor service provided. The good: location, awesome architecture, great live music, feels like you travel back in time to the golden...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
