    Was not open and the staff has no idea that a reservation was made. PLEASE remove from the Open Table system for reservations. This was very confusing and I had to scramble to get another reservation last minute on a Saturday evening.

    We reserved outdoor seating. When we arrived, we were told the outdoor patio has been closed for two months. No one in the restaurant had any clue we had a reservation and the menu is only bar food. We went elsewhere.

    Opentable confirmed my reservations three times, and when we arrived for our reservation, the restaurant was closed. Checkers blamed it all on Opentable. Who ever was at fault it was an awful experience to arrive and find out it was closed.

    We had reservations in a Saturday night for roof top restaurant at 6:30 pm. We arrived and they announced the restaurant was closed. They had not attempted to call us, text us or email us even though they had 3 points of contact information. It was very disappointing. We ended up going to perch for a dinner at their bar. As always, perch was great but not being out on the roof top was not the ambiance we had hoped for.

    I made a reservation at 5:15 pm on May 8, 2021 on here and confirmed it. When I arrived, I was notified by the hotel that it was cancelled. They said Round table app was supposed to notified me but it didn’t. Because I made reservation with the third party (round table), there is nothing they can do. However, they can accommodate for a 7:00 pm appointment. It took me an hour and half to drive there, I decided to stay. Again, on this app it shows the Checkers restaurant but in the reality Checkers has been closed for a year due to pandemic. They open the roof top only for few appetizers and drinks menu. The waiter was extremely nice but he was the only serving for the whole rooftop around 5 tables. I would like to hear from Round Table an explanation about my reservation and faulty market the restaurant.

    I made reservations for a Friday night, drove all the way from Ontario to downtown LA to find out they closed due to weather. I was so upset because my little sister just turned 21 and She came to visit from Colorado. The restaurant did not call me and if they did they should have left me a Voicemail I wasted my Friday night driving to and from Ontario and Downtown, LA.

    It was incredible. The staff went above and beyond and made my night amazing! This was for my 30th birthday and they accommodated my friends and I, and had great service. The view was incredible as well. They set up this section just for us so it was almost like an exclusive area for us. They made everything unforgettable. I recommend this place to everyone!!

    This isn’t a restaurant, it’s a lounge. They don’t have anything except for cold sandwiches. No bartender. Drinks come in small bottles. Server was nice but we were led to believe that this was a full service restaurant. It is not.

    I paid almost $300 for a mediocre dinner (for 2). Dining room is closed (permanently?) and the only seating was on the roof. Seems nice, right? Wrong. It was cold, windy, and noisy. They only had 3 space heaters for the entire roof, and our table was not anywhere near any of them. The sound of the hotel AC and helicopters nearby made talking at a normal conversation level difficult. The view is ok, not great, as most of the buildings around are taller than the Hilton, so you can't see very far. The giant red "Hilton" sign next to the dining area is neither cute nor trendy, and it ruins any semblance of ambiance. Food was okay, not spectacular, but cost a lot PLUS there is an administrative fee tacked on to every ordrer for some reason. They also ran out of one of only two dessert options that night. The staff is nice though, so it's not their fault, just a poorly run restaurant. Never eat here. Ever. Even if they pay you.

    My review is only on the valentines day experience on the rooftop. Go somewhere else for this day! Only had one person serving and one person sitting, wait was forever to get to next meal and it seemed unorganized. The singer was great though. Not enough heaters and just needed at least more people to be attending to guest

    Checkers has come (fallen) a long way since it was the sister property to the Campton Place in S.F. On a Saturday night, the restaurant was a morgue. Only eight total covers for the evening, and our party accounted for six of them. Servers doubled as bartenders and, possibly, bellman, busboys, and the cleaning crew. My scallops on saffron rice was excellent -- best in show. Other items ranged from very good to very poor. The menu notes in very fine print at the bottom that the restaurant charges a 4% admin fee, not for health benefits or the kitchen staff, but to cover the cost of operating the restaurant. ISN'T THAT WHAT THE MENU PRICES ARE SUPPOSED TO DO? Guess Hilton could not charge a "resort fee" to dine at the restaurant and so figured this was the next best way to mislead customers about the true cost of the food.

    Why did you eliminate your dining room? The food was excellent and the service "the best ever!" I could only eat one bite of my rib eye. IT was too tough to cut! I was up on the PH floor and couldn't do anything about it. Did you fire your cooK? It was disappointing. The view was wonderful and the server very efficient...you just got rid of a treasure. I would only come to your venue for drinks, not food. I am so sorry.

    Really discouraged by lack of professionalism, value of food and caliber of manager. My boss had to search for 15 minutes to find wait staff in kitchen, then proceed to be sat at a dirty linen table. Food order came out wrong and when manager was notified, the reaction was extremely disappointing. Nothing taken off bill. etc. This was a high profile lunch with LA City politicios. We will never return.

    When I checked in at the restaurant, they seemed to be totally oblivious to the fact that I had a reservation for six people. One would think that someone would look at the reservation list and have a table set up for a group of six. Most of the tables are set for 2 or 4. Fortunately it was not busy and they were able to accommodate us easily. The food is adequate, but nothing special, especially for the price. The service was very good and attentive. We'll return but probably not worry about making a reservation, and not for the food.

    Excellent choice for pre-theater dinner. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was quiet, intimate and conducive to conversation. Not quite walking distance to the Music Center (unless you're young and energetic), but just a short drive up Grand Avenue. Easy in and out with free valet parking for patrons. The service was very attentive but unobtrusive. All in all a very enjoyable experience. This might become our "go to" place for a pre-theater meal.
