Great atmosphere

Nice open concept at this restaurant. It has a really interesting atmosphere. It can get noisy at dinner time but I think it's a part of the experience. The food is really fresh and tasty. Their menu won't disappoint, neither will their desserts.😛 Nice for groups and families.

The food is always incredible and the atmosphere is top shelf and fun. I always enjoy the pizza and getting a to go box of macarons. They currently have raspberry cheesecake... HELLO! Enjoy good wine and great service.

The deserts are awesome but our favorite that really surprised me were the macaron cookies. You have to try one, or maybe three.

I just enjoy to go to Louis Bottega not the best foods or even the best coffee but very fun to be in this over size restaurant, the pastry are fantastic, they have a large selection of French Macaron but I have a very big hate of those sweet stuff I could eat only the one from Pierre Herme

This is not cutting edge food. It is not a great revelation of wines. The cocktails are ok. But it is a scene. All types - young, older, hip, business, couples, groups and all in between. . good food.. convenient downtown..

Busy, noisy downtown patisserie and restaurant. Service was slow but they were very busy. The cakes are a spectacle. We opted for a snack as the restaurant was very busy and very loud with,for some reason, TRex playing in the background, not so background. One of the best coffees ever and the cakes were up to Florians, though more reasonably... More

My fiancé and I were in the area visiting The Oviatt off of Olive and 7th in downtown. We wanted something sweet so we stopped in to this eye-catching eatery. It was a Saturday so it was really busy. We didn't sit because the wait was long and people seemed to linger. The vibe was real cool so we probably... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
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.
