A pre-theatre dinner in LA
A pre-theatre dinner in LA is almost always a rushed, unsatisfying affair. Everyone's usually late because of traffic or last minute office problems making a relaxed meal impossible. This time, everyone was on time and we enjoyed terriffic food in a cool urban setting.
This place is kind of Bottega Louie Lite. GREAT salads (spinach quinoa and anchovy Cesaer were fantastic) perfect meats and a powerful Mexican chocolate ice cream for dessert.
Service was a little spotty, but then again we're hyper sensitive because we had to still make it to the Ahmanson and park in time for 8PM curtain.

The cucumber drink was excellent.
The cucumber drink was excellent. The menu should post that french fries come with the mussels (would have preferred baguette) and the sandwiches. The two of us ended up with 3 orders of fries that we were not expecting. Would have opted for a side salad or the like had we known.

This was our second time dining
This was our second time dining here, once again, before a show. Everything was delicious! The roasted cauliflower - yum! The beet and feta, the spinach and quinoa salad - devine , and for dessert, a lichee sorbet with lavender liquor drizzled on top - incredible!! I wish they had a place in the North Valley - I would be there every week!!

The Scallops were Incredible!
Everything was delicious, but the scallops especially, and the shrimp scampi knocked my socks off. I will definitely return to this terrific restaurant and highly recommend it to anyone in downtown L.A.

The buffet brunch was delicious.
The buffet brunch was delicious. Each item was a unique blend of foods and spices, making it different and so much better than the "usual". And the service was outstanding. Everyone was gracious, helpful, and all ways available. We will definitely be back and have already started recommending it to friends and colleagues.

Good food, slower service
We had a team outing here and overall we enjoyed our experience. All of our meals were brought out timely except for one meal which came out 10 minutes after all the others.

Saturday night at Artisan House
Saturday night dinner at Artisan House for 6. We took the metro to Pershing Square, walked the 4 blocks and had a fun time stopping in at the Last bookstore and the wine/beer shop along Spring. Artisan house has a very diverse and good menu, everyone enjoyed their meal, the noise level was moderate and you could hear the converstaion which is a big plus. Its a beauiful space in a gritty part of downtown.

Note they don't really open till 11am for Brunch:The coffee was great and we were waiting for friends to walk over from the Half marathon finish line. All the food was amazing, the bottomless mimosa's were the way to go, and the buffet looked great. Overall I would return! Service was quick and attentive.
