Lovely restaurant with good Italian food. Wide open area to wait until table was ready. Fantastic bakery for eating in or take-out.

This is a large-scale restaurant with excellent food and service. It was not noisy where we were sitting, but expect it could be is some areas. It is very convenient for eating downtown when attending events.

This place is hopping, but well worth a trip for lunch. Probably the best lunch I have had in a long time. The store section has many beautiful desserts to choose from, and is extremely picture-worthy with all the bright colours. Although the desserts are gorgeous, they are average tasting. Even thought is seems very crowded, the wait for a... More

Just don't see why this place is so busy. My pizza was as forgettable as a stranger on an escalator. Macaroon only a bit better.

We chose Bottega Louie for the location, it's near a LA metro station. The restaurant is a quick walk from there. This was the first time we have dined there. It was a very pleasant surprise, it looked like the restaurants we've have been to in Paris, France. The were greeted with white Italian marble floors and their beautiful Patisserie... More

A vast open, high-ceilinged space downtown LA with something for everyone. It's not the best food in the world but it is a good place if you have kids because no one will hear them! Always have a great time there and it is the perfect place to take visitors for something different. They have a bakery up front for... More

I wasn't a fan that they did not take reservations. The place is super crowded all the time and we waited like 45 minutes for a table for 4. The place is obnoxiously loud at all times but the food was pretty good and it had cool, modern decor. It was a little more on the expensive end but the... More

I really don't understand the hype to be quite honest. Food is sub par, desserts were not sweet at all, and it's so expensive. My wife and I do not mind paying good money for good food, but my God the $40 in desserts we had were terrible. It's like they had forgotten to add sugar! The banana dessert tasted... More

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.
