Lovely but Loud

Lunch time is busy and crowded. Arrive early to get a table. All the food is wonderful. The pastry counter in the front is photo-worthy. Gorgeous pastries of all types and an assortment of pastel colored macaroons. It is a sugary fairyland. Ceviche was a favorite with our group, as well as the... read more

This restaurant has an energy onto its own. It is a gorgeous old building with high ceilings and it is busy all the time. It has a great pastry counter in the front that has gorgeous displays of pastries and macaroons. It feels like it is a happening spot from the moment you walk in. The service is great and... More

Went there with my sisters and a family friend last week for their weekend brunch. We had the Smoked Salmon Benedict, the Egg White Omelette and the Lobster Hash. All of them were equally delicious! What stood out for me was the service provided by the waiter, Allen. He was a wonderful man, charming and fun. To cap it all,... More

Having dined here many times over the years ... I found myself the other night walking there from hotel with a group of friends who have never tried this place. It is fun to watch the expression on their face. One friend who was just in Turkey said it reminded him of one of grand cafes tea houses in the... More

It was packed in the restaurant when I came and got the food very fast. My friend ordered the spaghetti and I the margherita pizza. Fantastic food that exceeded expectations especially... More

Bottega Louie is first of all a fantastic french bakery, YOU MUST HAVE the maccarons,they are to die for! I really enjoying going there after a stroll at museum and galleries downtown. The fish entrees are by far my favorite, the portion tough are a bit to small. Pizza is great, fresh ingredients and all. There is a line especially... More

We stopped in for a quick bite and were blown away by the quality of the food. There were three of us and we all loved our meals.

The atmosphere is very noisy -- we visited on a Sunday night and the place was about 3/4 full and was so loud because of the lack of material furnishings causing echoes around the warehouse-style room. Once we got used to speaking louder over dinner, the food was really good. We had simple dishes that were very tasty but would... 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.
