A word from Checkers Downtown
The menu at Checkers Downtown can best be described as an epicurean adventure from classic to contemporary. Under the creative direction of Executive Chef David Baker, the menu features California cuisine rooted in fresh, market-driven ingredients and seasonal cooking.

Checkers Downtown is located in the historic Hilton Checkers Los Angeles Hotel. In the restaurant you’ll find photos of Los Angeles through the decades. Located off the lounge, the outdoor patio offers a relaxed dining experience, perfect for grabbing cocktails and small plates with a group or for a more intimate dinner for two, all while enjoying the beauty of Los Angeles’ wonderful weather.

Diner Reviews
  • "Overall the actual service was good during the meal but pre and post valentine's dinner certain things did not impress me. Firstly, our reservation was not even in their computers and finally was seated within a 15 minute wait time. The menu choice was very limited and a few small courses for those with less of an appetite would have been nice. My main concern was that I had to come back to the restaurant (luckily we were still nearby in the hotel) because they did not swipe my credit card correctly). The hostess admitted to that fact but the rude waitress insinuated that I had left our table to fast or that it was somehow our fault. Today I find they overcharged me by 5 bucks, not a good impression."

  • "First with the good. The greeter was really nice and attentive. She called before my reservation and offer to make transportation arrangements for me to the Disney concert hall. The valet attendants were prompt but not super friendly. Now for the okay. The atsmopshere was descent but not equal to the price of the food. The waiter was friendly but not very prompt. The food was not worth the price. We ate from prefix menu at $50 per plate for Valentine's Day. The fried oysters were over cooked and the salad was limp. The poched salmon would have been good if not overcooked. The desert was very Valentines red with strawberries and raspberries but was served on a hard biscuit. The cocktails were pricy too. Its barely an average place."

  • "Took a friend for a late lunch for her birthday. The ambience was wonderful, the server was friendly and professional. The drinks were generous and the food was amazing. We were seated away from the bar so we could have a great conversation, able to easily hear each other. I plan to take other friends next week and many more in the future. It is now my favorite place. It was a delightful experience."

  • "Checkers Restaurant has always been a great place to take someone from out of town. The Christmas decorations and ambiance made it even better. Good to take your significant other, stay overnight if you want to be spoiled in the morning!"

  • "I made a reservation at this restaurant based on the reviews offered by Open Table and others. There were three tables being served at the noon hour they day of my reservation, that included my table, and it was a very disappointing lunch hour. Food was tasteless and not fit to be eaten, horrible, and service for a restaurant that was serving only three tables was inadequate. I would not return to this eateries even if they offered a free lunch. Very disappointing."

  • "Excellent place to dine before seeing a performance at Disney Concert Hall which included a complimentary shuttle service to Disney Hall."

  • "This is pretty much a typical hotel restaurant with a limited menu. We had an early 5:30 reservation to attend a 7:30 theater performance and there was only one other table occupied. We were seated directly across from the entrance to the kitchen and could hear the dishwasher banging metal pans. The food was just OK and service was acceptable. They do offer a free shuttle for theater and concert events about 6 blocks away."

  • "The hostess/waitress seated us without checking us in so I didn't get the 1000 point special. Asked during the dinner to make sure she checked us in - of course no points the next morning and no way to get 1000 points , only 100 points and no Starwood credit either. Notwithstanding the mediocre meal at higher price. Won't be going back at any point level"

  • "Easy access before the Theater. The Town Car was a nice touch. I just think there could be a few more menu choices. Overall, can't wait to go back."

  • "Wonderful food and service. Music was initially too intrusive but they turned it down when we asked. We want to visit with friends and not listen to a manager's choice of music. If we wanted to listen to music we would have stayed at home. When will restaurants learn?"

  • "Five of us ate there on a Sunday night - all rave reviews! The appetizer trout, scallops and salads were especially wonderful. The steak guy in our party claimed that his Angus ribeye was the best he's ever eaten and he's in Foodservice! BTW, the prices were surprisingly low for such an outstanding experience... tell your friends!"
