My husband's cousin and his wife took us to Bottega Louie to soothe our sweet tooth while visiting them on our way back from our honeymoon in Tahiti. OMG! The desserts were to die for! We kept asking to go back. So delicious!!! I can't wait to visit them again someday! HIGHLY recommend!!!

I've tasted many delicious chocolate but the dark chocolate and english toffee bar here is sublime. It's like nothing else and no description can adequately capture the taste. Buy it and try it, you won't be sorry!

I had the mâché salad and portobello fries. The fries were amazing with the aioli sauce! I simply love this place and the desserts are fantastic and reminiscent of Laduree!

This place was recommended by the concierge at our hotel, the omni. It was a short walk down the street. My wife and I went there for brunch and enjoyed it very much. The food and service was exceptional. The macaroons were amazing. My only regret was not getting a bigger box of them to take back home!

This was my second visit, just as good as the first time. It is a massive stark white open room for dining after you make it past the pastries. Always crowded, but it is possible to walk in as the tables are all pressed almost together family style. While there are many options, including pizzas, their small plates are the... More

This is a must place whilst in downtown LA, to say its a hidden gem is an understatement. The food is 5* and the desert counter as you walk in is in another league, macaroons is a house speciality and fresh deserts are heaven. The atmosphere lets you know this is a popular destination and the owners have done everything... More

My fiancee and I went here for brunch. Not knocking the service because it did exist despite the hustle and bustle for this place. The cost for brunch is absurd. Maybe if it was a little more special I wouldn't complain. Maybe I didn't eat the right things (oatmeal and lemon ricotta pancakes), but still a hefty price tag. Not... More

I didn't eat in so I can't leave a comment on that but I did order macarons, a croissant and an eclair. Those were delicious!!!

Nice location and good food. The resturant gives you a mixture feeling of italian and french resturants. I ordered trenne pasta, a crisby pasta with red wine, I loved it. It was very different. Do not forget to order dessert!!!
