Ummm I had the Lobster Hash and we shared Pizza and Pancakes... Everything was FANTASTIC. Bring a friend, you'll need the help, we didn't get into the cakes, macaroons and pastries but they also looked amazing. If your not thinking price? It's a fun place to spend hours and hours in. Good atmosphere too...

The crowd was fashionable LA, the decor Downtown revival, the food was great, fresh, simple flavours bursting from the well selected ingredients. Service was nice, attentive, friendly, as you expect in California. A solid address.

Went here about 7.30pm, atmosphere was good. when we ordered we found that our food wasn't the warmest. I had a pasta dish and my friends had meat dishes. loved the host and the cosmopolitan feel here.

This place is amazing! I've been a bunch of times and love it. The good is excellent and reasonably priced! The quality is great and you get much more than what you pay for! Portion sizes are large which is awesome because most places are stingy with food. The oven brick pizza and lasagna are by far the best on... More

I loved my salad and cioppino. The restaurant is gorgeous in all white. The service was stellar. My only complaint is how loud it is in the restaurant because of the acoustics. The dessert case looks fantastic too, but we didn't have dessert. I do recommend this restaurant.

We were told this was a great place for macaroons. Didn't realize it was so much more: A night of entertainment in itself. The kitchen show, the staff, the patrons, the Pizza, the deserts, and yes, the macaroons! While waiting for table (15 minutes, I suspect longer on Thu/Fri/Sat) you are able to enjoy the eclectic crowd and have a... More

Great food, reasonably priced in a nice downtown location. While they don't take reservations, the wait was much shorter that the estimate we were given. The only negative about this restaurant is that it is loud..particularly in the bar area. But if you don't mind the noise, this is a great place to eat.

As many times as I have been here I'm still never disappointed!! BL has amazing food, service, no RSVP taken, casual or fancy it all depends on your style or occasion. Their chocolate shuffle is to die for and their macaron are 2nd to none!!!! Try it out, you won't be sorry!!!!!

So great! I highly recommend this restaurant for either an intimate date or just out with friends. The food is amazing and all the pasta is homemade. I had the carbonara and it's delicious. I've been here a few times and there is usually a wait, but it's well worth it.

I like that their counter opens early, but their sit down service doesn't open until 8am, which means you can't even get an orange juice until the main service opens... Food, however is great, definitely worth the try, even their croissants.
