This place is DTLA epitomized. It is busy and bustling with stellar service and delicious food which some might consider slightly overpriced for the quantity. The quality and ingredients, however, is top-notch and we enjoyed dinner, dessert, and wine with impeccable recommendations from our waiter. Also, I know french macarons are the next "cupcake" of LA but these were especially... More

Very entertaining atmosphere and food. Great place to see and be seen in. The macarons are exceptional and the food is excellent. Impossible to have dinner conversation when the place is rocking.

Great food. Love the menu choices for breakfast. Try beignets for the table. Go early to avoid the crowds.

Went with some friends and family for a birthday dinner at Bottega Louie - what a wonderful experience in a huge restaurant with great choices - service and a huge desert menu. Fun experience especially if you need to be downtown or at Staples Center

It's a very cute restaurant in Downtown LA. It's huge. The food is great. Sitting in the bar area is also great for fast lunch. Their desserts are also all amazing. It's a must try. The noise level or acoustic is not so good, it gets pretty loud and noisy at nights. Hard to hear each other. I have been... More

Though it's very noisy, and always crowded, you have to love a place who's bar has a selection of ice cubes, depending on the drink (crushed, large square and regular), and if you haven't ever had portobello "fries" who need to get to Bottega Louie now.

This place is a must stop when LA. Come in and reserve a table. While waiting, admire the beautiful macaroons which are also delicious. Do purchase a few to take home, or a storybook of chocolate, you won't be sorry. I was there for a business dinner. It is a bit like being in a grand hall, a bit reminiscent... More

This place seems to be packed all the time, the only down fall that I can say is that you cannot make reservations. It's first come first serve. But if you can eat at the bar, atmosphere is great. Will definitely go back when in this area.

Good food, very crowded. Very difficult to get a table. Best to hang out by the bar and order small plates. Leave room for dessert.
