“Excellent Choice for Downtown LA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

We have eaten here several times over the last four years (our daughter went to USC) and each time have had a wonderful culinary experience.

The restaurant is located just across the street from the Westin Bonaventure. The food is outstanding, the wine list inventive and varied, and the staff absolutely top notch. The last time we ate here was the night before graduation, and our waiter went out of his way to add to the celebratory atmosphere of the evening.

If you find yourself downtown, this restaurant is well worth a visit!

“Great Experience at Cafe Pinot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

We had a great night at Cafe Pinot recently. Met friends in the bar for a few drinks - happy to see they stock my favorite beer. Had dinner out back in their outside garden. Very nice atmosphere and excellent service. I ordered the Roast Chicken and it was amazing. The only other time I had chicken this good was in Tuscany. Wife had the sea bass and it was excellent as well.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

Excellent service, delicious cuisine with a French accent. Just a short walk from the Westin Bonaventure you can dine outdoors on the garden terrace in a delightful setting. Pleasant escape from the city noise. Reservations recommended.

We had our rehearsal dinner here and come back for special occasions. It is a little pricey but well worth it!
