We went on a Sunday night. Nice quiet with musician playing guitar. Food had excellent flavor except the main dishes were very salty. All the fried dishes were light and crispy. Overall great food and drinks. Will recommend and visit again.

We loved this place! The low lighting and the modern decor are very relaxing. The food was great too, perhaps a little bit on the pricey side, but nothing we weren't prepared for. The real highlights are the bar menu and the wine list. The cocktails are reasonably priced and very creative. Great for a date night or a nice place to sit for a while catching up with an old friend.

great downtown spot for dinner
Great casual spot for dinner. We had tickets at the Nokia theatre and had dinner before the show. Perfect walking distance. I would recommend the shrimp and grits - pretty heavy and a little on the salty side but delicious. Don't want to order this on a first date - you might want to fall asleep afterwards, especially if you overdo it on their great specialty cocktails. My husband had the lamb neck which he enjoyed and said he would order again. It wasn't as heavy so he was able to finish off my shrimp dish. My friend had the market fish and while it was good, it paled in comparison to the great flavors and dramatic nature of the other dishes. The bar looks like it could get busy late at night. we'll be back.

Standards on a Sunday
Three words... Pina colada sundae!!! G.D. it was good! Pineapple+caramel+macaroons+coconut ice cream= awesomeness. Yelpers always rave about the shrimp and grits and rightfully so, but for me the dessert was the real star. Visited on a recent Sunday night. Surprisingly good jazz combo serenaded diners and incoming hotel guests. Staff was on point. Sensational food. Bottles of wine heavily discounted. Good, varied selection. Atmosphere convivial. Bar would be a great place to meet up any night. Will definitely return with my eating pants.

Gorgeous interior, food was excellent. A little too loud for my tastes but it has a bar and game 7 of the finals was on so my bad. It would be a great "chill" restaurant - the laid back attitude is there - but bar rules all downtown. Still, a great dining experience.

A Wonderful Find
We enjoyed the price fixed meal for Restaurant Week in LA. We especially enjoyed the corn chowder and ceviche soup. I enjoyed the sea bass combination but all of our meals were delicious and the portions very generous. The service was very pleasant. The wines were ok. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends and will return again.

DineLA Dinner with Friends
There was a good happy hour menu and great cocktails. I went here for DineLA and was pleasantly surprised. The goat cheese and beet with crostinis were phenomenal; I could have just eaten that the whole night. I enjoyed sampling other dishes my friends ordered as well. I had the fish which was good and ordered some tater tots as an appetizer for the table. The only dish that wasn't the best was the peach compote crumble; it was basically sliced peaches topped with ice cream sprinkled with grainy crumble topping. I did not detect the compote anywhere. I did taste someone's rhubarb cobbler and that was the best dessert we tried. I'd definitely go back.

Surprising New American Restaurant
Everything we ordered was delicious, even the bread and butter for the table was notable (maybe we were just hungry). I would recommend the Truffle Parmesan Tater Tots, Heirloom Baby Tomatoes with Burrata, Bacon Wrapped Pork Belly and Shrimp + Grits (which had delicious creole flavors). Service was great: quick and simple and the atmosphere was as well, tables were not too close to one another. I actually didn't even realize until later in the evening that we were actually seated in the lobby of the O hotel.

All the food we ordered was
All the food we ordered was so delicious. We especially enjoyed the truffle oil tater tots (so glad we ordered 2 of them!). We enjoyed all of our small plates so much (including the bread) that we barely had room for our main courses, which were equally as wonderful. We hope we have other opportunities to come an enjoy future menus here!

We had a wonderful evening. Our server Alex was great and made the experience even better. Overall the food was good - the pork chop was a bit salty, the veggie hash was delicious, the small plates really seem to the the winners. The cocktail selection was fantastic. We'll be back.

A surprise in downtown LA
Checking into the O hotel with it;s minimalist ambience we were leery of eating in their restaurant. We went to Open Table and were surprised to see great recommendations for eating there so gave it a try. It was such a surprise and a treat. The service excellent, a waiter who knew his wines and could explain every facet of the items on the menu. Everything we ordered was excellent. It was topped off with a rhubarb and plum crisp with home made ice cream that was probably the best we have ever eaten!

good food, good music
The food was great. We loved the tater tots. The acoustic musicians were a nice surprise, even taking requests.

Shrimp and grits, pork belly, heirloom carrots, tots, mussels, and squash hash...
DIVINE! Of all the dishes we shared, we could NOT pick a favorite. Every plate was amazing!
Also deserving high regards: the chocolate flourless cake.
Excellent cocktails, amaros, and service! Absolutely coming back to this spot soon.

i've been going here since it was o-bar, & it quicklhy became my go-to spot after work. i am so glad that the quality was the same after it became bar/kitchen. i know it's gone thru internal changes again, but even tho the familiar faces are gone, the food & drinks are still great. this place is still in my top 10 go-to spots that never disappoints.

Different but Great food
The food was very different but the presentation and taste of all our food was excellent. I highly recommend the Mac N Cheese! It's almost as good as the Mac N Cheese at Club 33 in Disneyland! A Little noisy at times, but food and bartenders were very accomodating.
