Lovely appetizers and drinks at their Bar - beautiful depot to enjoy while sipping or eating

We had appetizers and drinks here while waiting to board the Southwest Chief...the whole experience was an adventure and a half! The surrounding Depot is gorgeous in architecture and character. The drinks are good and the shrimp cocktail was enough for two. Delightful, cannot wait to return.

I have been going to Traxx for a long time and it has been consistently good. We now meet before going to a Dodger game to have a quick meal so we don't have to bother with the lousy food at the stadium.

Myself and 3 other friends took the train from Orange County to Traxx Restaurant in Union station and met up with another friend from Santa Barbara. We chose this restaurant because it was convenient and I had heard good things. Unfortunately, our experience did not begin to meet any of these positive reviews. 4 of us had the Waldorf Salad,...

We stopped here to celebrate our business meeting and enjoyed 3 delicious drinks before catching our train home: cosmo, gin and tonic, and a cider. Loved them all. About $26 + tips.

This is the most decent restaurant which you will find inside the LA Union station, in my view.It's a very quiet place, right at the entrance of a LA union station, which is usually a crowded place, where you can both drink and dine. The Menu list is not that long. But the food which they serve is actually pretty... More

We take the train to Los Angeles to attend the Ahmanson Theatre Sunday matinees. We are always looking for a place to have lunch/brunch prior to curtain. Most times it requires a taxi ride as the choices within walking distance of Union Station are either China Town or Mexican Restaurants. We were delighted to find that Traxx, the lovely restaurant...

Our group of 10 went there last Saturday and all left happy. The atmosphere was great as the palce was quiet and we could all easily hear each other which is unusual for a group of that size. The server was very responsive and all were happy with their meals. I had the prok chop; the portion was generous and... More

My traveling companion said he had never had a better pork chop (and he's a Midwesterner and knows his pork chops!) I had potato chowder and a Waldorf salad, both excellent. The restaurant is actually in the train station, and open on the station side, so we were treated to chamber music being played just outside. A white-tablecloth place, a... More
