Vegetarian / Vegan | Downtown, Downtown / South and East LA

Visited the Arts District CG on Friday April 6th to meet up with family for an informal breakfast. My niece and Mom are vegans, so we thought it would be a fun place. CG came recommended by friend. Construction in the area is crazy, but free parking was available right in the front. First off, the staff was so friendly and accommodating. We were welcomed warmly, and were offered beverages while we waited for the others to join us. My niece had her husky dog along, so we had to move outside when they arrived. We were not allowed to sit in the patio area because the awnings were getting some work done, so we had to on the outdoor benches in the direct sunlight on a very hot day, and try to hear each other above the din of construction. Had we been inside, all of this could have been avoided. Oh well! The coffee and tea were excellent, we were hydrated with bottles of water, and our dishes were delicious! We ordered the wrap, the chilaquiles, the quinoa/bean dish, and the garbanzo quiche. I think I was the winner, with the quiche. We look forward to the future, when you have less construction and traffic in the area. Love the servers and the staff, very good food. More

Steakhouse | Downtown, Downtown / South and East LA

The staff was very accommodating and their 1-hour power lunch was a very good option for a business meeting. Both my guest and I ordered fish, and although this is a steak house, the fish was a little lacking in flavor. I had the market fish (Barramundi with Chimichrri) and I thought the fish was a little greasy. I also had their mushroom side which wasn’t as flavorful as I had hoped. The mushroom were also a little underdone. Overall though, the option was good for a business meal. More

The braised lamb shank was absolutely delicious. I am still thinking about it this morning (last night). I thought the blend of flavors with the creamy polenta, veggies and rosemary jus was perfect. The cheese plate was very good (really loved that bleu d'auvergne) and we had the deviled eggs. Nice. The restaurant was not busy for a Tuesday night (not surprising), so I enjoyed that it wasn't overly crowded. The space is VERY modern styled and the lighting is nice. I like places that are a bit cozier but it should be a destination for the food, especially! More

Patina remains as one of the very best high end restaurants in Los Angeles. The decor and ambience is quiet and soothing, the food is always excellent, and the service is impeccable but very friendly and welcoming. Terrific for a long and leisurely gourmet meal, but since it is located at Disney Hall and the staff is quite accustomed to patrons going to the symphony, the opera, or a play, Patina is also a great choice for pre or post performance meals. The new Spring menu is outstanding. More

The food and atmosphere were amazing. The waiter forgot about us even though he knew we had a show to see. I had to get up and find him. I’ll always go back to Kendall’s. And have never had an issue w service before. Maybe it was an off night. More

We brought our coworker here for a going away dinner, and we were SO well taken care of from minute one. Our server Jose was so knowledgeable and guided us through any questions we had, not to mention kept the drinks and food rolling ALL night. The shrimp fundido and refried beans with BACON were my personal faves, food-wise, and drink-wise, well........you can never go wrong with margaritas and sangria!!! Five stars all around - will be back as soon as we can. More

This is a wonderful restaurant for one reason, his name is HIGINIO. We have never been to a restaurant, where someone really cares about you having a great experience. HIGINIO is attentive, he makes excellent recommendations, and will work with the kitchen to make sure you get what you want and how you want it. For this reason alone it is truly worth going to this place, just to be served by HIGINIO! More

We had their lunch combo (appetizer + entree + fried rice) for $19.99. The portions were smaller than I thought and the quality and taste were not that far above Panda Express. I would suggest cutting the price to $15.00 or including wonton soup. More
