We had a large party for a co-worker's farewell. I'm always impressed with the food here. I am on a pretty strict detox cleanse and was still able to find something on the menu that was on my program (with a few small modifications) but still VERY DELICIOUS.

Food came out cold (French Fries). We weren’t charged happy hour prices for our drinks even though we were there for happy hour. Parking was ridiculous! We were charged almost $15 for parking for a little over 3 hours. You would think that after spending over $300 In your restaurant that parking would be validated.

Food was good. But there were not enough servers. We had to constantly grab the attention of our server. I would return in a pinch. It was convenient to dine at this location if attending a theatre event in Little Tokyo.

We made a reservation. We received a call the day of our reservation letting us know there was an event in the restaurant and we could not sit in the restaurant. We were seated in the Lobby of the Double Tree Hotel. Some of the food was okay. However, our main Birthday Guest's food did not arrive at the table until 30+ minutes after everyone else. We refused the meal. We were heading to a concert. When the bill came they did not tell us the tip was already included... Not a good experience... Will not return.

Great spot to hang out prior to Dodgers Opening Day this year, was looking for somewhere just like this and was perfect. Only complaint is the service seemed to be overwhelmed when more early morning fans arrived and got too slow.
Breakfast buffet was just right and for the price can't go wrong.

Not super busy when we were there so we were able to kill time after dinner while waiting for a theater show to begin.

Arrived during happy hour and had $5 wine. Nice deal

Good food for price and location. Poor service. Not at all busy but still took a long time to catch waiter's attention. Waiter disappeared twice more. After finally ordering, waiter forgot side dishes.

Justice is located steps away from the Hilton Doubletree downtown. Received personable, excellent service from both our servers for dinner and breakfast. They were energetic, had smiling faces, and were busy yet made us feel welcome. Would definitely return.

They didn't have our reservation.
There was an event going on with the loudest imaginable music.
We left and went elsewhere.
Very poor experience.

Service is always very slow, not attentive or friendly. Food is OK. Wish it was better because it's in a perfect downtown location near city hall.

Convenient - we didn't have to drive as we were staying at the hotel. Friendly staff. Good food. Healthy choices available.

Good food, great service--a good solid go-to for business meetings, friends get-together or to watch a soccer match.

I joined a group of friends here for an early Sunday dinner. We ordered a variety of items and shared plates so we got a pretty wide sampling. We had the House Cured Meats & Local Cheeses, Justice Wings, Margherita Flat Bread, Roasted Garlic Sunchoke Dip, Fish & Chips, Hand Cut Fries, Elote and Sauteed Spinach. I really wanted to find something stand-out but everything was just ok. We couldn’t really taste the garlic in the sunchoke dip and it really needed to come with more crackers for the amount of dip there was. The braised pear on the meat & cheese platter was tried but pretty much untouched. We had beer and cocktail drinkers in the group. The selection of beers on draft was good. The person that had the cocktail that featured beets didn’t think it lived up to its promise. The thyme cocktail though was liked by all.

The location and service were good but it wouldn’t be my first choice if dining in the area again. We had enough variety that something should have stood out but everything was just ok. I would try somewhere else first.

So glad I was able to use OpenTable reservation system and follow up by making a call to see if our lunch items could be prepared to coincide with our group's arrival. Our server was great, and she took the care to make it all happen. I think it was Theresa? Give our thanks to everyone on shift for our Thursday, 6-2 1:30 reservation for four. Next time, we'll bring the boss, for his birthday.

The food was amazing! I'm not sure what we loved the most, the Mac n cheese, tuna tacos or crab cake sandwich! I eat here often and love everything from the staff to the food to the overall ambiance. If you're in the area try their specialty cocktails!

An excellent meal. Loved the Citrus Shrimp. Great Ceasar salad and the bread is super. My husband loved his meatloaf. Stephanie our server was delightful. Had dinner there twice recently and we could not have been more pleased.
