    Despite Open Table and their website indicating otherwise, Les Noces du Figaro was closed on a Saturday at Noon. We're talking garage-style doors pulled down behind their doors and windows closed and their front patio area looking like it hadn't been swept/cleaned in days. So either this place is closed for good or their hours of operation are in dire need of updating.

    This place is gorgeous. I had been looking all over Downtown for a restaurant that would host my rehearsal dinner. I finally found a place two months ago, before coming to this restaurant. I wish I had known about Les Noces du Figaro before! This restaurant is not only gorgeous but the food is delicious and the service is fabulous. I took a tour of the upstairs area and I was told it could hold up to 200 guests. It was huge!! I may host my next dinner party or birthday party there. I live in downtown and didn't even know about this restaurant until I saw them listed on dineLa. The waiter was great too!-he was so helpful and attentive. I will definitely be coming back!!!!

    We desperately want to love this place. The decor and ambience are wonderful. However, every time we give it a chance, it comes up short and this meal was no different. The ratatouille appetizer was glorious. Then we got to the entree. I ordered the vegetarian gnocchi. There was bacon in it. I had to show the bacon to the server in order to get him to take it back. He later told me that the chef had first ladled out my partner's meal (coq au vin) and then ladled out mine with the same spoon, hence the bacon. Disappointing.

    We had booked in advance for a large group (10 people). When we got there, they only had one waiter and one busboy. We ordered and it took 40 minutes to get our appetizers. And then another 40 minutes to get our main courses. I am guessing that the kitchen was underdstaffed even though we orderder off the set menu. The food was overall good but the wait time was not acceptible.

    Les Noces du Figaro is and upscale restaurant and adds a main attraction on Broadway for foodies. Unfortunately, the service left everything to be desired. In all fairness, our waiter was personable and tried to make the best of a bad situation. Not all wine was available from the wine list. I had to ask for a fork TWICE, I received the wrong entrée, our salad was not split as requested and water/bread arrived when we were almost finished with our meal. Service was too disjointed and no one seemed to be in control of the orderly progression of the food delivery. Our waiter tried to make amends by providing coffee and cookies on the house. Excellent food, poor service

    We tried this restaurant because we were dropping our daughter off for Prom on Spring street, and this looked good on Open Table. The staff are extremely nice and helpful, and the food was fantastic. Some of the best escargot I've had, and the basil infused vodka martini was amazing.

    Nice waiter. "French" staff..had air of arrogance...not customer friendly. One plate was served with spoiled smelly filet mignon. Reordered then came modicum well when rare was ordered. The second plate had strange coloring potato side that smelled too strong of cumin....or what????? Espresso was good and so were their bread n pastries.

    I'll try any restaurant downtown in a historic building but this one delivered on ambiance and flavour. Our server was very friendly. Interior is cute. It was a Sunday evening, and after a few families left, we had the place all to ourselves so it was very quiet but supposedly they are busy for their happy hour. Drinks and bread were good, duck confit was delicious, (hubby said filet was very good), souffle was not the best I've had but wasn't bad either. Will definitely go again.

    Elegant - tasty and full of flavor - this is the food and the interior. Really loved the happy hour specials. Ravioli dish was perfection with a great sauce that didn't overpower and not too much sauce. Friend had the slider burger and fries - grilled nicely with lots of flavor. The crispy fries rounded out our meal. I enjoyed my Kir Royal. You'll see us here again -- many times

    I found this restaurant on the internet and decided to meet a friend for dinner. We had great seats near the front to enjoy the street scene while we dined. I had Chicken- delicious. It had just a light crunch to it. My friend had the pork chop- very moist & tasty. Our waiter did seem to be a bit anxious to take our order even though the 2 hours we we spent dining the restaurant had only a small number of diners.

    The restaurant tried to cancel my reservation without notifying me because it was for 930 and they closed at 10. Claimed open table must have made a mistake (which it didn't). When I showed the hostess the reservation confirmation on my phone she gave me and my girlfriend attitude and started issuing bogus excuses. I never even got seated. Pathetic.

    Must have been understaffed that evening- service a bit slow and menu was shortened. We learned later that changes are being made and the menu is being enhanced, as it was when we dined in the past. The best- is the waiter actually asked how the salmon should be prepared! Good idea because I recently had lunch at a new restaurant in West Hollywood and the salmon was very rare-one person asked for it to be cokked a bit longer. Perhaps waiters should ask how the salmon should be cooked- so often it is extremely rare and it isn't sushi!

    I took a few friends who were here from NYC to Les Noces for dinner. We we greeted by Karim, who made us feel as though we were regular patrons of the bistro. I have been to Paris many times, and he has the same French "attitude" that we all love to hate. He knew his menu quite well, and made some wonderful recommendations. The cod was superb, and my duck confit was quite tasty, albeit a bit small. The wine was also outstanding. I look forward to my next visit.

    I dined here for Valentine's Day as I was excited about the Yelp and Opentable reviews! I loved the French details in the restaurant along with the special decor for the evening-candelabras, buckets of wine, and rose petals...I chose this location over 4 other places and was excited about the food overall but the service from Laura equated to that of a family run diner. It took 8 minutes to receive water, and over 20 minutes for her to come to the table. She approached us with a hello and simply requested our order. No welcome, no warmth, no hospitality whatsoever. Thanks for a great First Valentine's Day Laura! I won't be coming back JUST because of her!

    We had a Living Social voucher. We had appetizers that weren't included but they were excellent. The calamari was one of the best we've ever had. Very lightly fried and not greasy. Beef carpaccio was also great. The steak that came with the voucher was okay but nothing we would ever order again. The steak was tough and fatty. The sneak knives had seen better days. They need to be replaced since they wobbled when cutting the steak. They must be left over from an old Ponderosa Steak House. Not what one one would expect from an old school French restaurant. The place is worth trying.

    Unfortuately and for a Saturday night, the restaurant was very quiet....which is unfortunate since it is really a good restaurant, good service (Amit... you are a good waitress), and ambiance is upscaled from the normal bistro. Being in DT LA is a great thing, but being on Broadway is not....this street is not built up yet BUT I feel that give it a couple of years and Broadway will be OK. I will definitely go back to the restaurant in the near future.

  • Good food in a bad location
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 11/22/2013
    Standard French food was good, not great. Escargot was better than Coquille St Jacques as appetizer. Bread was fresh and delicious and wine was great and a great value at Happy Hour prices. The meal, one rib eye and one filet, each with sides of potatoes and vegetables, was tasty, but not memorable. Portions were large. There were a few things I djdn 't like. The location in a really run down part of downtown LA was off-putting. Though there was valet parking, I think they only have it on weekends, and I would not park my car and walk to the restaurant. The restaurant was lovely, and very different from many I frequent, but the large, empty rooms made me uncomfortable. Service was slow despite few customers.

    I took a large group here and we had a great time. Excellent food (enough to bring some home--yum), good service and nice ambiance. I felt everyone went out of their way to ensure everything was good with our group. We went on a Sat night at 6:30 pm and had no problems with waiting or anything else. Valets take care of parking ($8 I think). I would definitely bring a group here again.

    Dined on 10/22/2013
    A good brunch place in downtown Los Angeles is hard to find. This place is it. Believe me. This restaurant is also our special occasion, quiet, romantic place. The food is delicious, and we go for the vegetarian options....excellent, especially when you want a nice main course, and are not in the mood for asian vegetarian. Comparison restaurant for downtown LA is probably Bottega Louie, but French-American cuisine, without the noise and crowds. Figaro also has scrumptious baked goods behind glass cases that look like art work. Don't let gritty Broadway scare you away.

    A charming, spacious French restaurant in an otherwise sketchy part of Broadway in Downtown LA. Delicious cuisine, appealing yet understated decor, and a very friendly vibe. We ate at the bar, and the waiter/bartender was incredibly helpful, engaging and responsive. A great experience in every way.
