We went there for Sunday brunch they don't take reservations and they do get busy. The beignets are delicious. I could've eaten two orders and been happy. My husband ordered the egg sandwich that he liked and I got soft boiled egg which was cooked perfectly. I also ordered the potato pancakes which for me were just ok. I think... More

This was our second time at Bottega Louie and everything was delicious as it was the first time. Last time here we had dinner and this time we had brunch. I had the Smoked Salmon Benedict and it was amazing ... rich but amazing. My husband had the Italian Scramble and he said it was excellent. We will definitely return... More

Going there makes me very happy. The desserts are fabulous. The wait for seating is horrible. Wished they can do something about the wait.

This place is incredibly popular, which makes the place really noisy. However the atmosphere is pretty good if you don't mind the noise. We had an incredibly good waiter who was very attentive. The kitchen is in the middle of the restaurant which is really cool! The food came out so quickly too. Now, the dessert....... YUM! So many options,... More

When you walk in its a restaurant, cafe, bar, patisserie... Overwhelming aromas coming from all directions. You don't book so we walked in and were swiftly shown a table. Excellent service & excellent food! Lobster Nage was particularly brilliant for under $10. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant if you are visiting Downtown LA.

Been here several times during the year whether during the week for dinner or over the weekend for Brunch/Lunch. Good for couples, families and or a dating destination. Parking structures a block away in each direction and not an issue. Always crowded but worth the wait. Service is friendly and attentive and the servers are happy to provide recommendations you...

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
