LA Market Restaurant by Kerry Simon - The JW Marriott Los Angeles at L.A. LIVE
Great food fast.I love a restaurant where the chef doesn't mind my food sensitivities and asking for changes to dishes on the menu. I had the salmon with the kale instead of the sauce that contained cream. My husband had the meatloaf as is - a total plate of comfort food. Both were yummy. The brussel sprouts were amazing as a side dish! We went early before a Kings playoff game. The restaurant wasn't very full and our waiter was very attentive and took good care of us. A little pricey but I'd definitely go again!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for pre-concert diningThis was our first time at LA Market, service was attentive but not hovering, the waitperson was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful, and the food was excellent. Only complaints - we each had a glass of wine, the selection was limited and a little pricey, and there were no vegetarian entree options. It's probably unfair to rate the noise level since we went on a Friday before a sold-out concert. The hotel lobby (restaurant location) was buzzing, the bar (restaurant adjacent) was packed, and we were seated near the entrance. Considering all that the noise wasn't bothersome, but the environment wasn't as relaxing as it could have been. There was also a constant parade of food coming from the kitchen to another bar area across the lobby, odd.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMNeed some "Satisfaction?"Went to LA Market prior to seeing the Rollilng Stones at Staples. It's a nice comfortable restaurant amid the craziness of the lobby of the Marriott Hotel - fun for people watching, grazing and sharing a good bottle of wine. This restaurant isn't going to set the culinary world on fire but it's dependable and very good for what it is. I wouldn't necessarily recommend the Caesar Salad but the Brussel Sprouts were delicioius, the charcuterie is great to nibble on and my friend loved his burger. Great, attentive service and generally a nice place to go at L.A. Live that you don't have to spend a fortune.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's fun to sit by the windowsIt's fun to sit by the windows and people watch. Attentive service, and the food was good.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved the clean, unclutteredWe loved the clean, uncluttered lines and earthy colors of this restaurant, as well as it's light, open feel. We could not have asked for better service from our very nice, attentive server. The flat iron steak with cauliflower (every color!) over a fabulous carrot puree was perfectly cooked. The fish special of the day, halibut (which can be quite bland) was incredible with the baby bok choy and asian seasonings. We will definitely be going again for a special occasion.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe waiter was very knowledgeableThe waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu. Atmosphere was great. Everyone was pleased with their food. Four guest ordered the chicken and one ordered the steak.Will return again!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing service and menu selection.Amazing service and menu selection. The atmosphere is open and light with nice views of LA Live. I and my date cam through prior to attending an event at Staples. Great atmosphere and service, the evening manager makes his way to each table, not just to ask if you need anything, but to make sure your dining experience is exceptional. It was for us, and if your lucky, as we were, you might see some hollywood notables sitting across from your table.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe bread served before dinnerThe bread served before dinner was a special treat. Drinks were very good. Walk out the door to the entrance to the Nokia...wonderful!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMVery pleasant dining experienceVery pleasant dining experience and good service. We liked the spacious setting in the dining room and the low noise level. Very good start of the evening, followed by a concert at Nokia Theatre.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBad service before concert!My girlfriend and I decided to make a reservation at LA Market before the Alicia Keys concert at Staples Center. I received an email that by showing our concert tickets we would receive 15% off of our bill at selected restaurants, one of which being LA Market. We had great service at the beginning of our meal, but once we got our wine and last appetizer (delivered by a busboy) we didn't sleeve our waiter again until we realized we needed to leave for the concert. We continued waiting and finally we waived down the first employee that would acknowledge us and asked for the bill. We were in such a hurry that we paid in cash and included the tip. We feared that if we asked for the 15% we would be late.
Lori Martin3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Food at LA LiveThe food and wine list were excellent. I was very happy with the menu selection and the quality of the items. I was especially pleased that I didn't see nachos or chicken wings on the menu. The service was near perfect. The wait staff was very polite, prompt, efficient, and attentive. The only issue was the waiter had his sleeve in my water at one point as well as in the butter dish. The Crème Brule was divine. My husband especially enjoyed his desert cocktail. Ambiance was okay, considering it was situated in a hotel lobby at LA Live and there was a table of tourists with screaming children immediately next to us. I would be happy to dine there again.3/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
