The restaurant and hotel are beautiful, the service was great! The portion sizes are small and to be honest, the main dishes were ok. We started off with 2 different appetizers (the fried oysters and the hamachi), both were great. For our main dishes we had the muscles and the lamb, both were meh. The drinks were delicious so I have no problem coming back for that but probably won't dine here again.

I wish I could review the food. But after making a reservation and arriving early to it, we waited 40 minutes. Everyone who arrived after us was seated. We were told multiple times that they were clearing the table, setting the table and printing menus (apparently they kept running out of food). When I looked into the dining room, only half the tables had people at them.

Since it was my boss's birthday, we left to find somewhere else to eat. So zero stars for service. I can't judge on food since we never ate there, but Open Table forced a rating to submit this.

We made a reservation on open table but when we showed up, the hostess was completely overwhelmed. It seems the restaurant didn't plan well given the large conference in town and the JT concert taking place that same night. Diners came and took forever to leave, backing up the reservations. Once we were seated, the meal arrived quickly, but it did not live up to the hype - and because we were seated late, we were rushed to get back to our other events.

Food was excellent, only drawbacks were service, to-wit: we ad a 5:30 sitting, one server started and for some reason we were assigned another and had to go thru preliminaries once again. Then at the end of the meal there was a mix-up at the cashier ( or whomever does the financial transactions) mixed up the checks and credit cards between two tables, which was corrected . We left the table with more receipts than we would have at a CBS checkout. We are awaiting our card statement to see if all was corrected.

This would be the first and very last time I come to this restaurant. The food is not to die for and the service is terrible. Wish I can travel back in time and let myself know not to waste my time & money in such a restaurant.

The service is just outstanding! From the moment you walk in until you leave. I will come here again and again and again.
Great food and drinks but it is the people that work at this restaurant what makes it super special.

Interesting experience, but way too loud. Tables in the hotel lobby/bar area is a bad idea. Food was outstanding, wait staff very attentive. The lounge style seating and large table made us feel like Bruce Wayne and Vicki Vale at first 🤣. Hope they make some adjustments.

While the restaurant had lovely ambiance, our reservation was honored very late because the restaurant was busy and all our food was served cold, even frozen in some circumstances. The restaurant had great drinks, but I wouldn’t recommend this place for food or any special occasion.

The food and service was excellent. The portions are not large, (except for the panna cotta which was very substantial,) but the food was well prepared. The dinner menu was not extensive, but enough variety for our party of three. The lunch menu appears to be more extensive.

This is without question one of the worst restaurants we have ever been too.
Perhaps new?? very disorganized. Hostess needs training for sure. The menu was limited and what we ended up with was barely eatable. I can't image who would name this "fit for foodies" that is very misleading. The only thing I can think of is that mostly very young people frequent it and just do not know the difference yet.
The bar and bartender was really nice and we would recommend it but not the restaurant.

After reading reviews we went specifically for certain dishes we read about, but to our disappointment none of the dishes were offered that night. Apparently they print a new menu for each day so call ahead if you want the ham and cheese croquettes, or the sliced steak, or the decadent chocolate cake. We were staying in the hotel so we decided not to leave based upon the fact that it was pouring outside. The pork appetizer was the best part of the meal. The paella (which you have to ask about because it’s not on the menu - just pictured in the elevator) and the $26 (!) burger were good, but nothing to get excited about. Went across the street to get dessert because we had set ourselves up for some chocolate. Overall just not what we had hoped for, but not bad, just disappointing.

Conveniently located in DTLA, as we were attending a concert at the Music Center thereafter.

Located in the Hotel Figueroa, it has obviously been renovated. It has a lively bar scene, which
we were not interested in, but the food - combination of small plates and mains was creative
and very tasty.

Great food! The bone marrow was delicious and so were the cocktails! Kinda stressful figuring out how to get to the restaurant because it is in downtown L.A. and the parking isn't obvious. Had to drive down a back alley to park in a dark parkinglot behind the hotel.

Located in the Hotel Figueroa, Breva is a delight for the eyes and the palate. The high ceilinged beautiful room still manages to feel cozy and intimate. Cocktails were delicious, service was attentive and the food was delicious; the chicken was a standout. We enjoyed it so much we went back 5 days later and it was every bit as good as our first time.

Maybe some people called out sick the day I went. Food was great, but dishes came out sporadic and we saw our waiter 2 times the whole time. I will give it another try and I hope it was just a one night staffing issue because the place, although small, is very good. Beets and goat cheese was good.
