The only time I've ever eaten a macaron, it was not tasty. Because of that, I was somewhat apprehensive to order any. However, these were so beautiful, and I thought how could they be bad if they look that good! They were divine! We had the salted caramel, Earl Grey, and praline ones. Also, we ordered a beignet and personal... More

The restaurant was great!!! The food is delicious. It was lively and fun. I had a drink at the bar and the bartender was great. He made me a perfect cocktail. I can't wait to go back and have the chocolate souffle and the other fabulous desserts. I promise I will be back when I am not dieting.

Just down the street from my hotel, popped my head in becasue I could see their macaron display, but found an extensive selection of pastries and desserts. High-quality, appropriately priced, and very well packed for travel. They also have some very attractive gift boxes.

We came here off of a recommendation from the concierge at our hotel, and they did not disappoint! Service was top notch, ambiance was lovely and the food was AMAZING! We ended up splitting a dish and doing some of the small plates along with some drinks. The restaurant was busy, but the service was still very prompt and food... More

We went for brunch on Sunday to celebrate English Mother's Day. The ambience of the restaurant was wonderful the staff were immaculately dressed, you can see the prep area and the chefs creating their culinary delights. The attention paid by the waiting staff was first class some of the best we have ever encountered. The menu choice was impressive so... More

Bottega Louie is a great space with a section full of beautiful desserts to take out - macaroons are the colorful specialty , a full bar, an open kitchen, and a very lively vibe. I was surprised to find it was full in the late evening on a Tuesday. We were given fresh bread and butter immediately and our waiter... More

Stopped here late on Saturday Night and the place was packed. No tables available but we got a sausage pizza to go and waited about 15 minutes for it. It was fantastic !! The pastry counter looked amazing and there is a small bar area. The restaurant itself was buzzing and noisy but everyone appeared to be enjoying themselves. I... More

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.
