We were originally going to the place next door. We were in line for 15 minutes when a gentleman told us there was no line but just as good food next door. And we are very glad we took the advice. Absolutely yum! Huge portions and amazing service. Best food since we arrived here!!

So much food. We ordered wings and the Maui quesadilla for appetizers. For dinner we ordered a cheeseburger and a kale salad with raisins, pecans, roasted turkey and cheese cubes. Additionally, we ordered two Cadillac martinis. Everything was great and it was so much food we couldn't finish it all. Such. A nice visit and nice waiter as well:)!

We were welcomed the minute we stepped into the place! Irish atmosphere but menu leans more toward American food. Server was friendly and there when we needed him. I had Reuben which was average.

My daughter and I enjoyed Happy Hour here when in LA for WonderCon this past weekend. We ordered hot wings off the HH menu which were very yummy, but did take a pretty long time to get out. We also got the taquittos, they were only okay, would not get them again or suggest you try them. I had a... More

At a conference for the week including St Patrick's Day - watched all the fun (aka silliness) in downtown during Thursday and then it came to the weekend. It was the final day of the 2016 6-Nations Rugby and the conference finished at 11am. What could be better than sitting in an Irish Bar in LA to watch Ireland vs... More

Stopped in for a few drinks and ended up staying for hours! LOL There was a good vibe in there and the place was clean. Great place to sit at the window street side and people watch...

The food and service were very good, but we thought we were going to an Irish pub. There was nothing Irish about this place except for the name. We would go back again for the food.

Riordan's Tavern was recommended by the hotel staff of JW Marriott. Our server "Joshua" was exceptional! He was very friendly and provided great customer service. The food was great!

I visited this place at New Year's Eve at happy hour. The food is great and the service is very good also. It has the kind of food that you will find in every pub and have a wide variety of beers also.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
