    For a hotel restaurant, the food was quite good. Reservations were suggested, but not needed. The price is what you would expect for a hotel in downtown L.A.

    Several of us ordered the $28 tandoori chicken, it was most certainly not worth $28. The chicken was disgusting and the rest of it was not that great either. The best part of our lunch was the bread they served in the beginning. The service was slow and the food took around 45 minutes to come out. I had been here once before and I didn't like it that much but thought I would give it another chance, I am definitely never coming back again.

    they exaggerate in the pricing. $8 for a 8 oz glass of orange juice and another $7.00 for a cup of coffee! It was too much! I ended going to starbucks the rest of my stay. A week of Starbucks equated to one buffet breakfast at the hotel. Just because people can pay those amounts doesn't mean they should charge that amount. It doesn't improve the quality by raising the cost!

    We came here as part of LA Restaurant Week. We were honestly not expecting much, but the food blew us away. My middle eastern meze appetizer was delicious as was my partner's burrata, which came with a fantastic ratatouille-style relish. My Indian curry was yummy, although it tasted more like Indian via Thailand, and my partner was a fan of his fish and chips. The desserts were perfectly done - one of the best creme brulees I've ever had. The timing of our meal, however, needed work. We waited for 15 minutes before anyone came to take our order, and there was a 25 minute pause (!) between when our entrees were cleared and when we received our desserts. We ordered all courses at the beginning, so this seemed like a big oops.

    I came into the restaurant with my purse and a folder so my hands were full. The hostess was seating us and she could clearly see I was having trouble trying to pull out my chair and didn't bother to help whatsoever. Finally I manage to pull out the chair and seat myself, as im trying to situate myself she immediately hands me the menu, while my hands are still full. Finally we are sitting and looking at the menu and our server didn't come over to greet us for about 10 minutes. He eventually comes over and takes our order. I saw him maybe twice throughout our 45 minute lunch. We told him we were in a rush and he was very slow and extremely hard to find. The staff wasn't helpful at all but I did enjoy the food.

    We chose the LA Market because we occasionaly watch the TV Show "Hells Kitchen", and the 8th season winner Nona Sivley was to be the chef at this restaurant. We went without checking and found out she hasn't been there anymore for quite a while. Still, food and drinks where OK. Nothing special. Location is nice, and the overall experience was good.

    We sat for quite some time before any wait staff acknowledged us. Then we finally were waited on. Dinner came and we had to ask for bread.....it just went down from there. The worst french onion soup I have ever had. A lot of fluff for poor quality. We are staying at the JW Marriott and the restaurant is in the hotel. They really should step it up a notch

    Overall the experience was very nice. Biggest downfall is that the menu that was on open table is a bit different from the one in the restaurant. I went specifically for one dish that was online and not served. the waiter told me they stopped serving that menu a year ago when I showed him the open table menu. Nice wine list!

    While attending a large conference, I made breakfast reservations for myself and my colleague to meet an important new business client. He showed up with two of his lieutenants. The restaurant staff the table for two extra places without missing a beat! The restaurant has an amazing breakfast buffet and simply outstanding service! My guests only had coffee and the server didn't even charge their coffees to the tab. If you want to have a wonderful business meeting, with superb staff and delicious food in a beautiful setting, this is it.

    I have been to La Market over 10 times. I simply loved the food and ambience. On this last occasion, I had an experience that will probably deter me from going back, for a long while. I was celebrating a birthday party with my co-workers. We had placed a very simple order. The order came out incorrect. This is very understandable, however, when we informed the served, he became very rude, in fact I would say aggressive, and blamed us for the mistakes! I have never been treated so poorly at a restaurant, especially at a Ritz Carlton.

    Regarding the reservation process: easy and very accessible through OpenTable mobile App. (Although, our first option for dinner - LA CHAPTER - didn't have reservation avail for that night, so we found the LA Market.) Restaurant ambience: it's beautiful and has nice decor. Noise level, so-so. Not a foodie experience. Our meal was very ordinary and nothing special. Wine list, I've seen better.. The iPad idea, I don't know... not a fan of that. Regarding service: very poor. We were dinning with friends we've not seen for years. We were totally thinking about giving them a nice downtown experience as there are so many places that have incredible food. But, unfortunately the night became a night of interruptions, rude and class zero service.

    Spot is unbelievably nice, the food was pretty impressive for the most part, but the service was pretty bad. When I try to find a manager he was nowhere to be found! For some reason he kept going back to his office instead providing much-needed customer support out on the floor with a customers.

    I just dined here January 5, 2014 for brunch and that makes it four dines! The first time I had dinner here it was from the dine LA menu last year...however we did a add on and it was delicious and service amazing. Brunch was delicious the atmosphere was relaxing atmosphere, topped off with great service and food.The food tastes better because of the ambiance, the ingredients are top quality but it's still a bit pricey (but worth it overall). I love the fact that when they were out of the wine we ordered, they apologized and presented a better bottle. We had their burger, baked eggs and a waffle for dessert. LOVE! oh and a bellini and wine too! FYI-they have gorgeous house made baskets of breads, what a nice treat!

    Dined on 12/17/2013
    Burrata and eggplant put together sounded a little odd, but I love burrata and couldn't say "no." The eggplant chutney that came with it made for the most delicious combination! If you're a fan of mozzarella and/or burrata, then get that appetizer! We also had the surf and turf lasagna, but I wasn't much of a fan. The pasta seemed a bit undercooked, and the seafood wasn't the freshest. It had been a long day, and I didn't want to prolong dinner and, therefore, did not send my entree back. Overall, a pretty good experience.

    This is a great restaurant. While we are aware that we were kind on the late side (8pm) and on a traditionally slow night (Monday), so the restaurant was fairly empty, we had excellent service. The food is excellent, as always. The bread basket was delicious and the food was well prepared. I would say that the price point is steep for what we ordered, but I would definitely consider going again for a special event.

    Dined on 12/1/2013
    Flatbread pizza was a little lacking--too much crust and all the toppings piled in the middle. Fig and Proscuitto pizza was just ok. Ribeye (prime, bone-in) was delicious. It did have a sweet sause and herb butter that I don't reacall reading on the menu. I wasn't completely fond on the sweet sauce and the steak didn't necessarily need the butter as it was plenty tasty on its own. But, still a 5 star steak. Junk food platter was a lot of fun. I preferred the separate tiramisu dessert which its rich coffee reduction.

    LA Market is definitely taking advantage of its location! Overpriced menu, both food and drink. I don't mind spending money for good food and drink but when its not good then it is just overpriced. It's my opinion that LA Market is just taking advantage of its location. The fact is that it is one of many go to restaurants at LA Live and they know the people will come. We did and will not make the same mistake in the future. Very unfortunate because the restaurant is beautiful, staff very helpful, and the location is great, now they just need to get the food to line up with the prices they are asking. When one pays 45 dollars for a steak it should be something like you would get at Ruth Chris or Morton's. I can not recommend this restaurant.
