We came with family, including teenagers and a 10 year old, for brunch on a Saturday before a Disney Hall event. From the 'industrial decor' (meat hooks hanging from the ceiling, and the odd plastic bottles of honey dangling over the bathtub) we wondered if Industriel was too "out there". The ten year old observed that the menu had "too many words on it". Hmm. It turns out the words are there to describe the flavors and creative (but not stupid creative) ingredient combinations in the scrumptious food. Highlights: truly the best Bloody Mary anywhere (just smallish), the burger - screaming with beef flavors, kale salad. The pork loin sandwich was also a great combination of tastes, although the meat was very fatty. There is a cover charge for bread, but it's worth it. Appetizer portion of pickled vegetables was very small and the vegetables were not crisp enough for my taste. Only real complaint was the noise level on the first floor. Even though the restaurant only half full, the noise bounced of all the hard surfaces and it was very hard to hear each other talk. I would like to return, and would ask to sit upstairs to see if that's any better.

Been to Industriel three times now and loved each time...Chef is always eager to talk about the latest creations....food is inventive, fresh and delicious! I recommend upstairs for a romantic dinner or dessert. Amazingly comfortable overstuffed chairs, dark and pub like. Service is fantastic. Downstairs was with a large group and everything was just as great! the Prix Fixe offerings are wonderful....

This place was just a block away from where I stayed and I noted it as I walked by. Locally sourced food and an interesting looking menu. I sat upstairs at the bar which was nice if quite dark. I ordered the kale salad and mussels. My first impression of the salad was that it was too dressed but ended up thinking it was pretty great. Bacon and parmesan shavings, a bit of panko for texture and white anchovies. YUMMO! The mussels, sadly, were a disappointment. They were done with a pumpkin curry thing and it wasn't bad, just not very interesting. Very lime-y and the pumpkin was under-cooked, as far as I was concerned.

Loved this place. The funky decor and odd name aside, the food was fabulous. Definitely a good choice.

Yum - all 5 of us cleaned our plates. Gnocchi w/ peccorino was a big hit, and we gobbled up the risotto w/summer veggies & quinoa salad w/ beets & persian cucumbers. The meat eater loved his duck cassoulet, and we ate every bite of the arugula salad w/ grilled stone fruit and the heirloom tomato salad. Don't miss the crispy poached egg w/ asparagus. Fabulous desserts (we were given an extra one by the chef - thanks!). The menu says "no alterations or substitutions", but they did omit the meat in 1 dish for a vegetarian. Creative cocktails, good service, attentive but not intrusive. We were celebrating our daughter's LA Triathlon & a good time was had by all.
