Another great open table find. Parking in a garage across the street $6..easy access. Greeted warmly, cozy upstairs dining. Design very industrial chic. Gnocchi...fab. 2 fish dishes per my companions..excellent. Corkage $15..no prob. Service very good and friendly. Not stuffy at all. Go there!

Industriel has wonderful fresh food straight from the garden. The menu changes seasonally. The dishes are creative, attractive and tasty. Portion size is generous. The service is outstanding. The downtown location is the restaurant's second location, having first opened in nearby Pasadena. I am sure the second restaurant will be just as successful as the first. A real gem!

We Keep Going Back....
....to Industriel. It's one of our go-to restaurants. Price is very reasonable for what you get and the overall experience has always been fantastic. This time we went on a quiet Monday night and sat upstairs for the first time which was great as it filled up as the night went on. Grilled Waternelon salad was very good - entree dragged a little bit but I think that was because I ordered the Pork Chop, which is very thick and takes some time. Really good - but even better was the roasted half chicken that comes in a big cast iron bowl. It seems to be lacquered with a soy (?) based sauce that turns it dark and it's just delicious! Great place in the neighborhood!

We at brunch here on our last morning in L.A. - what a great send off! the salmon was perfect and the eggs benedict was as good as it gets. we loved the cocktails and the coffee and our server was friendly. the interior design is edgy and quaint, all at the same time... would definitely go back!

Went to this downtown LA casual
Went to this downtown LA casual French restaurant very early before a ball game. The food was outstanding and we plan to go back for a regular evening dinner again soon.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Downtown Food
The food was interesting, innovative and presented beautifully. Everyone in our group of four had delicious meals. Wait staff was terrific, recommendations were spot on. Accommodating to special requests. Put this place on your "foody" list. We'll return soon.

I met a friend here for lunch
I met a friend here for lunch in the upstairs dining area overlooking 6th St. The ambience was perfect. In big overstuffed chairs, we had the privacy we wanted. I had the white fish and while the bacon was salty, it meshed with the corn and sauce perfectly. My friend had the salmon and it was delicious, cooked just right. We finished with the strawberry rhubarb crisp - yum! I definitely plan on coming back!

Creative, fresh and fun.
Excellent-we ate her pre-Mark Taper Forum and the staff was very efficient getting all the food out in time. Interesting and flavorful food. Recommended. Good wines by the glass.

Having checked out the vast number of different restaurants participating in DineLA, Industriel seemed the most intriguing to me and the best bang out of my buck. Ordered the Kale Salad and Industriel Burger, absolutely outstanding. The kale wasn't too strong and the anchovies were the magic touch. The patty of the Industriel Burger just melted in your mouth and was cooked to perfection. I'd definitely come back here even not during restaurant week. The cool farm, urban rugged ambiance is also unlike any other places in Downtown. Highly recommended.

Good food and service for
Good food and service for the downtown crowd. Go for 'Happy Hour' snacks (that could make your evening meal) and avoid the impacted freeways.
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Crisp and clean ambiance.
Crisp and clean ambiance. Servers were friendly and attentive. My only issue was that we told the restaurant that we were there for a birthday and they didn't do anything special.

Dinner at Industriel
I have a friend who comes to town on business twice a year and it's my job to find interesting, fun and unique places to dine. I am a total ambiance freak and, ideally, the objective would be to find a restaurant with good food at a reasonable price which also appeals to my sense of aesthetics. I am practically beside myself to say that 'Industriel' succeeded in every catagory and I cannot WAIT to go back! It was an all-around terrific dining experience in a unique and creative environment with an exciting and innovative menu, all at a fair price and excellent service to boot. This place has it all!
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
All duck everything...we will be going back very soon.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Cute place and great service
First time here last night. Industriel has been on my radar for a while now, but never tried it out for some reason. That was until DIneLA came along and the perfect opportunity arose! They sat us up on the second floor/balcony-ish area. Love the interior, has a nice charm to it. The servers were absolutely wonderful and helpful. The food itself was alright. The bill came out to be ~$86 (plus tip). Was it worth that much? Yes and no. There were things I loved and things I could've done without. But all in all, the experience was a positive one.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food; service was a little uneven.
but overall a great place to dine with friends
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Came here for their dineLA dinnerware some friends. Service was prompt and courteous. Waiter and waitresses were very attentive to our needs and kept checkin on us to make sure everything is okay. When the main course was takin a while to come, they came over telling us it will be coming out in about 5 minutes and it actually did. I got the pork belly and it was flavorful. Not too dry but not to crispy either. Just about right. Ambience was good for groups settings or romantic dinner. Lots of wine selection too. Would love to come back here during regular days and check out their other courses on the menu.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
excellent option on Sat pm
Finally, downtown LA has the potential to be more of an evening with a fabulous and different option for before theater/opera dinning. Thank ou!

Truly spectacular. The Klaudia's
Truly spectacular. The Klaudia's first cocktail was yummy. The food was incredible, the gnocchi was very light and flavorful, the quinoa with beets, feta, cucumber was light and refreshing. I would go back here in a heart beat.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
what a pleasant suprise!
Found Industriel on OpenTable for a last-minute reservation this weekend. Did not know what to expect, but the reviews online were really positive, so we decided to go for it. What an amazing experience! Great environment (recommend sitting upstairs vs. down), phenomenal service (!!!) and really great food. Try the baked goat cheese with honey and roasted garlic -- amazing.
8/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
Loved the shared plates, especially the warm goat cheese. Menu constantly changes, but I had White Lake Fish that was excellent. Vintage sofas and chairs add elegance to the industrial space.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Mojito was bitter, bartender nice enough but too busy to make an excellent tasting drink. Food fantastic and servers were attentive.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Je t'aime Industriel!!
Absolutely loved this place. Met friends for dinner on Saturday night and the food was simply divine! Must have the 32oz Ribeye! The drinks are superb, particularly the Four on Floor (or something with Four in the name). It's heavenly!! The only criticism I have is that the room temperature was a bit warm. My friends and I were trying to deal with the temp and the poor waiter was straight up sweating. Eeeeww, Definitely a negative. Otherwise, a simply fantastic evening!!
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Did not disappoint !
Came here for three reasons 1) I LOVE it's sister restaurant Green St Tavern in Pasadena 2) I had a hankering for a glass of Trinitas Chardonnay which I know is on their wine list and 3) we wanted a spot downtownLA.
Score!!! Absolutely delicious.
My only complaint: team service. Tis method of serving is disruptive and disjointed... Instead of helpful and efficient.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very Enjoyable Experience!
Never dined at this establishment - food, price, and service exceeded expectations. Wow - it was a very enjoyable experience!
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Trying something new. Enjoyed it.
We sat upstairs in the hip low chairs that made us feel like we were too short for the table.
However, once the food started to arrive, we didn't care. The meal was inventive without being fussy.
Duck Onion Soup was great, as was the lamb. The Risotto was competent, but not stellar.
We ended up with a bottle of wine that wasn't too expensive, but worked very well with our meal. The service was good--a team effort. The only hiccup with service was a bit of a wait from when we were ready for the check to when we could signal them.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time there and I will be back
A friend recommended this place. It was very good.
9/14/2013 5:00:00 PM
The food at Industriel continues to be delicious. I get downtown about once a month and have yet to be disappointed by the food. It's flavorful, well thought out and just plain yummy. Prices are fair and wines are well selected. Portions are very generous. A real gem and good value. Thanks Chef for sharing your talent! I'm often disappointed by the food at the "hot" restaurants in town . Industriel continues to please and surprise!
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
A gem in DTLA
Great food, fabulous service and quirky ambience. This is a must try in DTLA.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
we took someone there for their bday. the service was great, the food outstanding and sitting upstairs on the comfy overstuffed chairs made it very relaxing and homey. I would definitely recommend Industrial and look forward to going again for the brunch and happy hour. we shared all our plates and everything was delicious.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service was incredible. Always there when you wanted something and absent when you did not. Great. The food was fairly average. I did a duck dinner, with duck onion soup (lacked duck taste component, average onion soup), duck confit (interesting that it was so dry when it was supposed to be cooked in duck fat) and duck fat fried potatoes (wow, these were good). My date had fish, which was well cooked but nothing special. But I will return for the service alone.
10/5/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great food great ambiance.
We celebrated our anniversary at Industriel. The food and wine were amazing and they seated us upstairs at a nice quiet table. They also have us a complimentary glass of champagne for our anniversary which was a plus.

Creative recipies on traditional
Creative recipies on traditional favorites and focused menu. Will graciously accomodate food requests.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Chef Antonio is very talented. Two of our party were vegan and he created an amazing entree for us. Our friends loved the Duck and Sea bass entrees as well. I highly recommend this restaurant.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
I'll make it simple...... The food was outstanding and the drinks were out of this world. The only down fall was, the restaurant was a little bit too dark to read the menu. My kale salad was amazing and my pork chop was delicious.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, cool vibe
This is a great downtown spot for delicious food. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly. Do not miss the gnocchi - amazing flavors with contrasting textures. Our table of four had nothing but positive things to say about our food. The only suggestion for improvement was that the entrees were slow to reach the table following our appetizers...and I'm a slow eater. Definitely worth the stop in you're downtown - would be a great LA spot to take a client/business associate too.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
My new favorite place - Ever.
I tried this on a Friday night, early in the evening, when I first arrived in LA. While it was a fairly quiet night, I was struck by how attentive the entire service were - I didn't feel like I had one waiter, instead they all were my waiters! Very friendly from the first moment, but not in any way intrusive. Smiles, eye contact, and clear conversation. And the food was delightfully innovative and delicious! I immediately made a return trip for Sunday brunch, and had an equally delightful experience. You must make this your go-to spot!
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Second time as good as the first
Took my hubby here for his bday and it was as good as the last time I went with friends. Attentive and helpful service, varied menu for everyone's dietary needs, thoughtfully prepared vegetarian/gluten free dishes (thank you!), great wine/beer list. Lovely time overall.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had an early dinner so
We had an early dinner so I can't attest to the Vibrant Bar Scene, but the cocktails were unique and good. The food was excellent, with large portions. The servers were very attentive - water was filled constantly without interfering with our conversation. We had a long wait for the homemade apple pie dessert, but the manager came by and explained that although the pies are ready the final baking takes place only when ordered - it was worth waiting for. We have already recommended the restaurant to friends and look forward to visiting again.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
A little midwestern charm
A little midwestern charm brought to the LA scene.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Industriel has an unusual "look." A place that is at once Industrial looking and at the same time very comfortable. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the service as well as the delicious food. We'll definitely return when again we need to eat downtown.
10/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
Lovely Sunday night dinner
Not sure what the ambiance is like on Friday or Saturday, but pleasantly quiet on a Sunday evening. Really interesting salad choices, good dishes to share and decent mains. Excellent veggies on the grilled snapper (fish could have used a touch more seasoning), lamb cavatelli was quite good, duck confit ok, all at a good price point; comparatively the shared dishes are priced a little high. Excellent service, would definitely return.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
All good. Service was kind of weird, in that the team thing is cool, but it lacked a little love. Overall really great night though and some nice creative grub. The chick pea chili I think it was, is a must skip. I know veggie stuff can be dull, but this one was a snore. Lamb was great! I would definitely recommend and return.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Industrial decor is rustic and trendy. Great food and friendly staff. Convenient for me since I work downtown. Prices are very reasonable. The Kale salad is excellent!
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Loud of course. Too bad
Party ups stairs was so loud we could hear ourselves talk downstairs. Must be horrific at night with more alcohol. Good food.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
New favorite place Downtown!
Absolutely love this place. It was recommended by my coworker and I'm so glad we decided to try it out. We came here for our anniversary. We sat upstairs in a super cozy little table by the window with big plushy seats. Their dim lighting definitely sets the mood for a romantic evening. We started with the Pickled Veggies and Short Rib Croquettes. The Croquettes were to die for! My BF had the pork chop and I had the snapper. Both were really tasty! Only thing is I wish there was more fish on the plate. The beer was delish. They had a very interesting mix. The bartender upstairs made us some drinks that tasted like Christmas. Then we had the pretzel chocolate tart and some coffee. Everything we had was amazing, can't wait to come back.
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Treated like impotant guests
There were three of us at Tuesday night. My husband and I were taking a friend, who was going through a tough time and who also used to own an upscale restaurant in Beverly Hills, for a dinner to cheer him up. Since I have never been to this restaurant, I was little nervous about making the reservation. However, the evening turned out to be such fun experience, hugely due to the servers who made sure that we did have great food and great time. The ambiance was cool and romantic. Kale salad is must try.
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a great time at Industriel before a Clippers game the other night. Our server Merrill & Jeremy the bartender were terrific and the food was TASTY! Head there if you are downtown.
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Spare Room, Abundant Cuisine
We were looking for something new in Downtown before theater. Found Industriel by chance online. What a find!! Our wait staff was extremely attentive and knowldegible. We began with a Kale Salad which came chock full of house-cured bacon cubes...rich and smokey...a great take on a ceasar. An appetizer of short rib croquettes were dlicious...crispy on the outside and soft and succulent on the inside. A standout was one of their signature dishes, a chevre gnocchi with mushrooms which was rich and pillowy as gnocchi shoud be. All of the above were an 11 on a scale of 10, as was the remarkable roasted pumpkin creme brulee. The only disappointment was the morroccan chili...too one-note. We will return!
