The food is good. Service is great. Only complaint is...don't come here when it's hot out. They leave the doors open to the patio so the hot air comes into the restaurant. Trying to enjoy your hot meal while it's hot in the restaurant makes it a very uncomfortable experience. Unless you like to be sweating while on a date or with friends while eating, don't come here when it's HOT in downtown la.

The gnocchi was incredible and I’m still thinking about the jalapeños. Place was amazing inside and the service was great. Can’t wait to go back.

The decor/interior space is what stands out the most at first—if I had a restaurant, this is how I'd design it. Location is spot on, too. The 16oz Ribeye with broccolini and spinach was a m a z i n g! Crab cakes were also great, though I'd have preferred them to be a little bigger. (The Bacon Truffle Mac a little toooo cheesy). All in all, I definitely will be returning to try other delicious stuff on the menu! (Oh–and the house cabernet was fantastic as well!)

The AC must have been broken the night we came. Our entire table was uncomfortable due to the heat. The service team was very nice but the food was salty and nothing special.

The catfish and dirty mac was very good. Also the crab cakes. The only thing I didnt like was the huge ice cube that takes over the whole drink. They also you pasta as straws

Positives: food was great! We got the crab cakes and mac and cheese as apps, short rib pasta and fried Branzino for dinner.

Opportunities for improvement: drinks were slow, wait staff was slow.

The food was great but it took an hour for our entree to arrive. We saw everyone around us who arrived after us be served. We asked a few times and were told ours was next but it still was another fifteen minutes. Maybe they have no expediting system? Either way, it took away from the night. And the valet is $12.

I’ve been here a couple of times. Every dish is delicious, but the branzino — mmmmm to die for. The craft cocktails - just keep them coming!! Wait staff is gracious and accommodating.

The service was exceptional. Food was very good even though they were out of our first choice after we ordered it; but the replacement was real good. Will come back.

Birthday dinner
Cocktails were a disappointment. Sugar and ice basically.
I had mentioned in my reservation that we are celebrating a birthday. Neither the host that seated us nor the server took a note of that. I had to literally ask for their birthday desert when I saw they brought it over for the table next to us after their birthday cake.
The server said I’ll bring you something and brought the dessert when I was about to leave, after we paid the bill and everything. Too late and out of obligation. Not what I was expecting

Food and cocktails were all unique. If you think you have had something similar, you must try theirs first! I am not a salad person, but I would return for two of their salads (brussel sprouts one and a grilled peach one). Fresh, fresh, fresh ingredients. It is clear they take a lot of pride in what they do. Cannot wait to return (and I hear their brunch is phenom too).

We had brunch here a while back and have been looking forward to dinner. There's a wide variety of very interesting items on the menu and we had high expectations for our visit. Our expectations were in fact exceeded. The food is both gorgeous to look at as well as great to eat.

There are many very fine restaurants in L.A. theses days. Blackssmiths is currently at the top of our favorites list.
