The ambiance and food were very nice. I think it's over priced as the Chilean sea bass was a nice portion but had hardly no vegetables with it. It was $46. My husband had a decent portion of shrimp and grits that he enjoyed. My...More

This was a delightful experience. Service was excellent and very attentive. Server was very knowledgeable about the menu and when asked, offered her suggestions. The atmosphere was energetic and yet not so loud that you couldn't easily communicate at your table.

Awesome place to kick back and relax! I f you want a quiet formal setting while dining this is the spot to be. Beautifully pleasant place. Bring your wallet though. But it is so worth it! Been here twice.

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
