The grand tradition of downtown dining finds a modern, casual elegance at Caldo Verde. Here, the James Beard Award-winning team of chefs Suzanne Goin and Restaurateur Caroline Styne blend local flavors and boutique wines with the old California influences. The stately setting offers a richly-designed entrance, lobby bar, main room, and private dining. Outdoor seating opens onto the bustle of Broadway, while historic windows bathe the architectural space in natural light. L.A.-based artistry runs throughout, from Morgan Peck ceramics and lighting, to a monolithic Judson Studios stained glasswork.

    Came to Caldo for a quick dinner before a show, and our server was the same from a month ago. And what stood out to me was that he remembered I have a food allergy!! That, for me, is the best display of great service. Food was amazing. We had the local ceviche and a citrus salad, both were so refreshing. We got there right when dinner service was starting so the noise level was low. Beautiful ambiance. Definitely will have more date nights here.

    We were a party of 5 on a Friday night. I had heard about this place from an instagram post…very glad we made the trip Downtown. The hotel is trendy, as is the clientele, but it delivers on the important points, great food and thoughtful small producer wine list. I particularly liked that many dishes could be shared and there were many vegetarian dishes to choose from. My friends had the short ribs and raved about them! Only downside was the acoustics were poor and we had a hard time conversing as a group.

    Arranged a dinner for a group of 8 friends who were all attending a conference. Needed a place that was downtown and walking distance from our hotels, and this was perfect! Lots of very good options, especially for vegetarians. Service was attentive and helpful.

    Our server (I forget his name, but he was a kind young man from Ohio) was on top of our experience. He was graceful, understood cues and really enhanced our experience with his funny quips and story telling. This kind of experience is rare and I’m so lucky to have experienced it!

    food is absolutely delicious but SO unctuous. i ordered three vegetarian sides and felt if i’d eaten a cup of oil. service was slow but very pleasant. i think the fish dishes were less oily.

    The Wagyu Beef event was phenomenal. Superb meal with food so delicious, you’ll only crave the brisket you ate this night. And don’t discount the salad and mixed greens that accompanied the feast. This was one of those events/dinners where you couldn’t say no to. Every dish was a stand-alone, but every dish was also able to cohabitate on your palette. Hopefully the Wagyu event will make a comeback because life is too short not to submerse yourself into this type of sustenance.

    The ambiance was nice and we were seated promptly in a bistro sized table that overlooks the restaurant. The food options sounded intriguing and ultimately got the potato frittata and for something sweet the blueberry scone and sticky bun. All the food tasted good, however the portion size of the frittata was quite small. This was shocking considering the price point. It came with a side salad but nothing to really satisfy our appetite that we ordered two sides of the breakfast potatoes. Different members of the staff were attentive to our table to ensure we had our water always filled and to ask if we needed anything. Good service, ambiance and decent food.

    The service, ambience and most specially the food was the best it gets. The Caldo Verde is out of this world. Shareable portion but wouldn’t blame you if you didn’t share, it’s that good. The cheesecake balls, were the right touch to close the night. Will definitely be back soon.

    Perhaps less mezze choices for the flatbread. A lot left behind resulting in food waste. Serve the flatbread warm. We were moved to the speakeasy where it was much quieter with the picketing outside the restaurant . Victor, our server was nice

    I've been here a few times, and it has never disappointed. Steve was a great server and helped us pick cocktails and dessert. Recommendations: prawns, winter salad, carrots, ceviche, and ricotta dumplings. I'd skip the winter greens. Note that a jazz duo plays there on Thursday nights. They are great, but it makes conversation a challenge!

    Came for the Valentine’s Day experience with my boyfriend, and we were highly disappointed on the experience. First, the hostess took over 30 minutes to see us when there were multiple tables available. We had to come up and ask continuously when our table was ready and another hostess even mentioned that the table had been ready Already and she’s so sorry that nobody came to come get us. Our server, however, was professional and attentive to our table. The food was absolutely disappointing. Starting from the anchovies thrown on a plate for an appetizer. We left hungry with a $600 bill after only drinking two drinks per person. Definitely will be changing up where I choose to eat for an experience next time on a special date. Also, the chefs never came to our table. They went to everyone else’s table to say hi, and completely avoided us.

    Booked a reservation that specifically said we would have the standard menu and when we showed up it was only a prefix menu at outrageous prices. Nothing was done by management to amend the situation outside of telling us they would be happy to cancel the reservation. We decided to stay since it was v-day and there was no possible way to walk in somewhere else. To top it off - the food was horrible and mass-produced. The appetizer tasted like it was sitting out under a heat lamp after being prepared, it was stall and lukewarm. The vegetarian option was a pile of mushrooms. The 'red wine braised boar' was dry and flavorless - it could have passed a corned beef, I wouldn't have known the difference. $350 for two people to eat garbage food and leave hungry. No remorse for the misleading info about having a standard menu and the bait and switch. I'm sure they made a ton of money selling their cheap ingredients for an ultra-premium tho - kudos!

    Everything was incredibly expensive for the quality you receive. We had high expectations of the decor and ambiance - which we found to be very average. If you are considering this place from a convenience perspective I would stick to the rooftop Cara Cara and not waste your time or money with the street level Caldo Verde. It feels like a street level diner disguised as a the hipster flavor of the month. The food was hit and miss. We had a 5 course prefix with some plates drenched in seasoning and making a full and aggressive attack on your palate and other dishes were quite tasty. I would not suggest or pick this spot in the future.

    This is the second event that Caldo Verde has done in conjunction with The Now Serving bookstore that I have attended. The special menu, from the cookbook Italy by Ingredient, was fabulous. The service was excellent. That the chefs visit the diners is a nice touch.
