Staying at the Hilton for business & I was too lazy to go elsewhere. I had a rib steak & it was perfectly cooked. Staff was friendly. A nice non- stress meal. Another couple had 2 young kids & their server was very good with them.

Hidden in the back of the Checkers Hotel on Grand Ave is their nice restaurant. The food was good. We had the chicken salad, fish and chips, a burger and a sandwich. Each was nicely prepared and very good. This is a great place for a quite (almost unheard of in Downtown LA) dinner or lunch. We also had a piece of their chocolate cake with ice cream YUM!! It was refreshing to go where there was no loud music blaring or loads of chatter. it has nice large windows with a small outdoor enclosed seating area. The is a Bar area too just in front. Perfect again for a nice quite dinner or lunch. Now the hotel itself is also a little gem, if you like smaller more intimate hotels. We didn't stay here but it's a Hilton Property and is situated right in the middle of Downtown LA. It's near the bank district, next door to the Library (which is amazing inside!) and there are many other food choices (Bottega Louie’s is down a few blocks) there is a Starbucks kitty corner from the hotel too for those of us who have that addiction! I will definitely go back.

I wouldn't normally go here but I had a breakfast meeting. The restaurant is in the back of the hotel--which feels formal and stuffy, perfect for a meeting.

The service, coffee and food were all very good.

I had the healthy breakfast wrap with scrambled egg substitute, zucchini, squash, salsa, and baby spinach. It's in their "eat right" menu and only had 290 calories!

Very nice hotel in great location for going to restaurants and shopping. It is a bit pricey though. The restaurant does not know how to make french toast. They use foam bread instead of french bread and the results are definitely not the same. French bread makes the best french toast.

The dining room had a nice pleasant aura to it. There were large glass windows on one side of the restaurant which let in a lot of light and looked out to a natural scence. The staff were very attentive and after the 1st day the waiter remembered what I had ordered to drink the day before.
The french toast breakfast was was delicious and quite filling !
