Taking advantage of a delay in a train departure we decided to eat at the one sitdown restuarant in Union Station in downtown LA. I had a wonderful crab cake appetizer full of real crab and not much filler and a great slightly spicy sauce and a really good Pinot Grigio.. My teenage grandson had the Salad Nicosie that he...

Convenient location to meet clients if you are traveling into LA by train or Metro. Great food from the lunch menu (soups, salads, sandwiches and full entrees) great service. If you plan to be talking business, you should probably ask to sit "inside"...There are café table out in the open station and it can get a little noisy there. You... More

Traxx is on Alameda right near the train station. The food is quite good and they have a full bar. They have fresh fish everyday and they also have great crab cakes. The service is very good and the prices are reasonable. We loved their deserts.

My husband and I were looking for a place for dinner close to Disney Concert Hall where we were attending a concert. There are quite a few to choose from but we settled on a great little restaurant located in Union Station called Traxx. We had been here for drinks and dinner before and really enjoyed it then. On this... More

There are not many food options in Los Angeles Union Station so I stopped into Traxx for a nice meal before my evening train departed. I ordered the seared wild salmon and it was absolutely delicious!!! I believe the menu description read, Seared Wild Salmon with Melted Leeks & Beurre Blanc. I should've taken a photo! The salmon filet was... More

We decided on Traxx bar for drinks at 4pm and then an early dinner at 5pm when the restaurant opened- Very... More

We tried the chicken dish and a few deserts, very happy with the service, environment, and unique tastes prepared by the chef here. Highly recommend.

I'd just never expect to have good, decent food in a train station -- but this is no ordinary train station! Traxx has a good menu and well prepared and well seasoned food.

A friend and I embarked on an adventure. Got out of our cars and took Metrolink to Union Station where we enjoyed a tasty lunch on the patio of Traxx. The service was professional and unhurried. Union Station is an important LA historic landmark, maintained beautifully. I hadn't been in the station for many years, not since the days when... More

I went there with my boyfriend on a Friday night and had the best clam chowder ever!! It was so good I wished I had had another bowl instead of my crab cake.
