We were told about a restaurant that we simply must try in downtown L.A. It is called Bottega Louie and is located at 700 West Grand Ave., parking is easily found right across the street. Bottega is a simply wonderful restaurant comprised of its own bakery and open kitchen in a vast dining area staffed by a multitude of black... More

We visited Bottega Louie on a busy Saturday afternoon. We had a great time. The menu has something for everyone - we couldn't decide so we split a few items. The drinks are great, food great (BLT and Pizza were highlights), service (while they were very busy) was not rushed. Definitely will go again.

I stopped here to get myself some of the macaroons I saw through the window. You pick your own and they come packaged in a lovely lilac colored box that I kept as a keepsake souvenir! They were quite tasty!

First ate at Bottega Louie about 5 years ago while in LA on business. I've been back a half dozen times since. High ceilings and hard floors (I believe marble but can't say for sure bc I travel a lot and places start to blend together) and festive atmosphere means it's a loud environment. Noise doesn't bother me but some... More

We had such a wonderful late lunch at Bottega Louie. Our server Janine was superb. The food presentation was artistic and every dish we had was delicious. The portobello mushrooms sticks with the dip was out of this world. The salad was fresh and the two meat main courses were perfectly cooked. Our server Janine was friendly and very pleasant... More

Can across the restaurant by chance, once we tasted the food and experienced the service we were hooked. we went back many times. The size of the meals are huge, and the pizza for only $22 will easily feed for of you. I recommend the Mushroom Soup or the Onion Soup. For those not dining, the restaurant is famous for... More

A beautiful venue- lots of twinkling lights and not far from where a lot of my family was staying for a wedding- the Biltmore! Very noisy- I couldn't talk over the noise so if you want an intimate dinner, not a place I would seek out. The salad was excellent, very fresh and the dressing light and flavorful. Most of... More

Burger was ok on first taste but became flaccid, cold and heavy after 3 bites with too much lettuce and a cheap patty. My first cocktail was so bad I had to send it back but the waiter kindly replaced it with a better Old Fashioned. Generally a pretty underwhelming experience. For the money I expect more. Must try harder.

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.
