A word from City Tavern - Downtown LA
From the Rush Street and the first City Tavern guys – Ken Kaufman & Brian McKeaney – comes their newest Downtown Los Angeles venue, an old school tavern, CITY TAVERN to be exact! Distressed brick walls, reclaimed wood floors & walls, warm wood tables and chairs plus a lounge with comfy couches. Old school, until you look at the menu where you will find refined comfort food for lunch and dinner, 28 of the best California craft draft beers behind the bar, a boutique California specific wine program and some of the best hand crafted cocktails in DTLA.Continued

  • "The woman who waited on us (Halee) rushed us to order drinks while we were still sitting down and then wanted our food order instantly. We told her we were not ready. Then when we were actually ready to order, she was at the kitchen entrance yapping with the manager and someone else and could not have cared less about us. The service here is usually stupendous so I won't hold it against the restaurant, but I will not be seated in her area again"

  • "Reading some of the grand opening comments, wanted to give the place some time to get into a groove. They seem to have accomplished this. Service good and food good, I must try their salads (they look awesome). A bit pricey......I ordered the veggie burger. It was tasty, but chucks kept falling out of the bun. Probably needs some added filler to keep the patty together. Will certainly go back again. "

  • "I can't speak to anything else on the menu. However - the burger and the deviled eggs starter are amazing and filling!"

  • "Good food, good beers/drinks and great service. That's all a tavern needs."

  • "Food was OK - good price point for lunch. Service was indifferent and noise level way too high - couldn't hear what tablemates were saying without having to lean way in over the table. Maybe work on some acoustic treatment and I'd have no hesitation going back."

  • "The service was great as well as the food and the price even better, I will recommend the City Taver to all my friends."

  • "Nice, spacious and handsome decor and design. The food was pretty middle-of-the-road; not bad, but nothing to cheer about. The service was good and friendly, if a bit slow."

  • "Place has kind of an industrial look. We had decent service and the food was OK but not exceptional. LONG walk from parking garage to the restaurant."
