Diner Reviews
  • "We decided to choose a new restaurant to try downtown and Le Ka was delightful. Fantastic cocktails, nice menu, not-crazy prices, a beautiful room and unbelievably great service. (No really: our waiter was the perfect blend of familiar and funny but not too much + great service skills.) Must have the twice fried french fries--awesome. Also loved the grilled cesar. The pizza we tried was yum. The 2 pastas we tried were a tiny bit off -- made in-house (good) but cooked to a slightly too al dente level. But overall a delightful evening and a wonderful new find."

  • "The menu is changes daily and is combo French and Asian . Our party had the Branzino (sea bass) , Cod, and Duck. The duck was the best but all was very good. I suggest the famous bread pudding for dessert. Service and ambiance was excellent. We were there for a late dinner and selected this restaurant as a result of the 1000 bonus point offer. It will well worth it!"

  • "Had a great night at Le Ka. Went on a quiet Tuesday night, and enjoyed the ambiance with good service and food. The drinks were AMAZING. And reasonably priced. The Brussels sprouts were the best I've had yet (and I love those little green veggies). The server was friendly and funny. The wait staff kept our water glasses full and the empty plates out of eyesight without disrupting our conversation. I'll be back!"

  • "Nice menu, great service, very tasty food. Decor is a little too airport club lounge and the live jazz trio gave it the feeling of a cocktail hour at a wedding. Easy to get a table on a Saturday night, but some more filled tables would've added some energy."

  • "Great food and service -- several seafood dishes and all were devine. Love the jazz, patio, etc. etc. I've recommended to several people already. How did I not know about this place? Well, I do now. You should do."

  • "I found out about Le Ka via a deal voucher site and am so glad I bought in! We opted to sit outside on the patio and had a lovely view of the downtown LA high rise buildings. Despite being on a major street in DTLA, the noise level wasn't bad at all! The service was amazing: attentive without being obtrusive. The drinks were unique and well-made. The food is without comparison. We had a duck pizza drizzled with a passion fruit emulsion...AMAZING!"

  • "This was my first time a Le Ka and I am really happy I went. There were six of us and three of us ordered the albacore burger - it was very good. It came with either soup or salad, and two of us had the broccholini soup, which was good. The service was friendly and the atmosphere nice. The restaurant it's very nice. The only down side is that they did not acknowledge our birthdays and we thought we were going to have desert on the house because of our birthdays, but nothing. :( We had three deserts, one of them the bread pudding - that was my favorite. "

  • "Truely the best service we ever received from Anna, the assistant manager for the evening. She is a star who is very geniune and responsive to our concern, which had made our evening unforgettable. Her stellar customer service skill is phenomenal. She will excel in all business arenas because she has possessed the skills which she could turn the a unpleasant situation 180 degree to the best. Anna, please keep it up and we are confident that you'll be a true star in any restaurant business. "

  • "Came here for Mother's Day brunch and was very impressed! It was the first time here for everyone in my party (all 5 of us) and we were all delighted. When we arrived it was kind of on the quiet side because brunch was almost over. The manager came over and introduced himself to me and he was very kind and gracious for our business. He insisted we were absolutely fine to dine as long as we'd like. We sat outside and enjoyed the nice weather on the great patio. All the Mother's (my mom and grandma and my other half's mother) were very happy with the place. The food was absolutely delicious, every single item was melt in your mouth goodness. This place is stellar and deserves as many 5 stars as it can get. I will definitely be back! "

  • "We were there on Saturday, party of four. THey brought two meals out, and the other two took about another 5 to 10 minutes. NOt good! They did offer to comp dessert.............They should have comped both late meals. "

  • "This is a lovely place with a nice menu. I ordered the duck pizza, which was very good. I have to say that the flavors were great, but the crust was so-so. Nearby Soleto has GREAT pizza crust (and toppings). Anyway, it was accompanied by a very bland - almost tasteless -salad. I hate it when only part of my meal is good. My lunch mate had a margherita pizza and loved it. Our server was top notch, but two overly-solicitious and dandy gentlemen stopped by to make sure we were happy: nice touch, but a little too much syrup. "

  • "Came on a Friday night, and the place was at most half full. That's too bad, because it's a great space with tons of ambiance, very good food, and a nice jazz trio playing. A sophisticated yet laid back place that deserves to make it. Hope it does."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "I love this broad open space...the walls and the hanging decor above the well-placed central bar are everything that's fab about industrial but welcoming DTLA design. Great happy hour cocktails 3-7 daily. I'm a scotch lover...the Smoke w/out Fire is a fav. Digging the new menu. Small shared plates...we need more of this in our LA lives! Management here is friendly, laid-back and fun. Walking distance to Staples and LA Live...think about starting your night here for Happy Hour before heading to a game or concert."

  • "Though the restaurant took our reservation for a party of four, they didn't have a full-size table available, only a low lounge table on the patio. Not a comfortable way to have dinner."

  • "Great food but portion size is quite small for the price. Rabbit agnolotti needs more flavor. The crab salad was excellent and my husband dug the bbq shrimp. Also LOVED the bread pudding...those nuts had just the right amount of toasting on them."

  • "Went for a special "Valentines" dinner, though one day late. The main room is very beautiful and spacious and the surrounding indoor and outdoor rooms all look very nice. I will definitely be back with a corporate event for one of their private rooms -- this place is perfect for that. Overall the food was excellent - a bit on the pricey side but generally worth it. Except for the $5 coffee -- definitely not worth it!"

  • "My wife an I were visiting LA over Valentines Day and Le Ka had decent ratings on Open Table so I reserved a table. When we found out they were serving a Prix Fixe menu we were a little put off (haven't had good luck with prix fixe lately). We were very pleased with the cook and flavor of the food on the menu. They also had a his/hers special cocktails that were very delicious. Service was good and from someone who lives in the midwest, being able to sit comfortably outside and enjoy a meal on Feb 14 is quite nice."

  • "I will start by saying the quality of the food was excellent. They appeared to be under staffed and therefore the service was poor, and we were sitting at the bar! The starters were way overpriced for what you got. We had three different starters and a pizza, the starters were as much as the pizza and the pizza was a decent size while the starters were slightly more than a mouthful. We left with our appetites barely satisfied and even with the coupon we had (yes, I found out about it through Living Social. $35 for $73 worth of food/drinks) we still walked out of there $50 poorer. (the coupon, 2 drinks and 3 starters, we added 2 more drinks, a pizza and a dessert). Kind of a trendy "pick up" place."

  • "Edmund is a great bartender. He knows how to make some drinks that others do not. For example great stuff from Brazil. They even have the correct ingredients. The food was great and the AGM was very attentive. Especially when he noticed that our server was being overwhelmed with some high maintenance folks in another room. The AGM pitched in to make sure we did not get dropped. It was noticed and appreciated. We had drinks at the bar first and then sat outside for dinner. We ordered several items and indicated we wanted to share them. They arrived split for us and ready to serve without being made to feel awkward about sharing items. Very nice."
