This is one of the trendiest restaurants in the "new" Downtown LA. The patrons are young and hip and the location is perfect. However, this converted bank has such a bad acoustic that you can't hear yourself, let along your table mates. The food selection is very limited in selection and presentation, but very expensive in price. Come for the... More

We walked a couple of blocks from our hotel to this restaurant and it was buzzing when we arrived but we didn't wait long before we were shown to our table. Our server was very friendly and efficient and checked up on us often. It was loud but we really enjoyed the ambiance of the place. We were seated right... More

After reading rave reviews before our trip and getting local recommendations we visited for an evening meal. The main restaurant area was busy so e chose to sit in the informal cafe bar area. We felt the service was inattentive and we received no help making room for a wheelchair at the table. The food was ok but nothing special... More

I went here with a bunch of friends and I really enjoyed. The restaurant is really noisy, so I think it's great with friends... If you go there, you gotta try their portobella mushrooms fries! Best thing in the menu (note: I am not vegan!). The macaroons and pizza are also worth to try!

We came for dessert and coffee, and could not have been more delighted with the delicious and utterly beautiful sweets, the decor and ambience and friendly, patient and helpful server. Truly enjoyable all the way around. I can't wait to return to LA for my new favorite destination!

Ate here with colleague recently. We had never been to Bottega Louie before (or even L.A. for that matter0, but this restaurant was recommended by a few people so we decided to try it out. It helped that it was only a few blocks from our hotel. First....do order the Portebello Fries. They are delicious and unique. The food was... More

We went here after a long and busy day and enjoyed a great evening. We didn't have a reservation but it was no problem waiting in the bar area and we didn't have to wait for too long. The restaurant was busy and noisy but the staff were friendly and efficient and the food was very good. If you want... More

We arrived for our first visit here, and immediately knew that it was a popular spot. Crowded, bustling, and very loud. We waited in the front bar area (with a nice bottle of wine) for a table in the dining room. The bakery counter was amazing, with all manner of delights on display, and a stream of customers all evening.... More
