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.

    Gorgeous spot, decor is fabulous and inviting and warm. The food was fantastic of course. Service was really spotty— but they’re probably understaffed like everybody else. We would definitely go back. Loves the sunchokes and the french fries and the farro salad was insane. Thanks chef!

    The citrus salad is a visual delight as as a taste pleasure. The colors are bright and the plate is beautifully arranged. My grilled chicken with spicy sauce and lemon was served on a bed of herbed French fries and was just excellent, juicy with just enough charred flavor.

    A special dinner event with Phil Rosenthal (Somebody Feed Phil series/Netflix.) A selection of fascinating food from around the world, so not the usual menu. Suzanne Goin's kitchen and the entire staff did an excellent job. Caldo Verde is a joyful and (dare I say) 'happening' spot in downtown. We will be back.

    We were able to attend the special event with Phil Rosenthal, where the menu was inspired by recipes from his current book. The collard greens melt was the talk of the town and probably our favorite item. The pink pad Thai was remarkable, so much flavor, just enough heat, and probably ruined my boyfriend because that’s the first time he had pad Thai so now I can’t take him anywhere else. The quesadillas tasted better than homemade and I wanted more of them! The dessert was perfect! The brownie had the right amount of chocolate and the taste was spot on! The staff at Caldo Verde was extremely friendly, very responsive and quick to serve. Because it was a special event I knew it was going to be a busy night and the staff was prepared so everything at our table went off without a hitch! I love the ambiance at this restaurant. Great for a date night.

    The chicken on three of four meals was overcooked. The fish was good: seabass with a green sauce that I believe was chimichurri or something similar. I would not return. Three out of four failed entrees.

    Really disappointed by the food. My partner and I decided to come to LA for Christmas. Just a nice getaway for a few days. I booked a reservation for the “experience” and I can’t express how bad the food was. I wasn’t expecting it to be a life changing dinner. I appreciate people working on a holiday in general but it was just bad. It was $125 per person not including drinks…. It was more of a preset menu (which I read before booking and thought it looked really good) we ordered this chicken dish that came with grapes? And cabbage. And also we ordered the Caldo Verde entree which was a green seafood stew. Our meal also came with two small starters and two sides. There was also a table that had desert that you could graze yourself (this I thought was really cool and the tiny desert I did eat I thought was delectable). All of the food was genuinely bad. Zero taste. Needed to be totally rethought. The salad was super sour and super sweet. Bizarre and not balanced at all. I couldn’t eat it, it was so sour. Then the gnocchi with lobster… the gnocchi itself was sooo floury. I make gnocchi and I am no chef but this was truly so weird a gummy. Lobster always tastes good so those little bits were fine. The Caldo Verde stew thing literally tasted like dirty dish water. Zero flavor, no seasoning. Green dirty liquid with a tiny bit of crab and a few muscles. The chicken dish with grapes was weird. It didn’t make any sense. The chicken was stuffed and cooked well, tender… but just not good and still had no flavor. I’m telling you, I thought I was losing my mind. Then I told the server about how I was feeling and she offered to make us new (different) entrees. My partner wasn’t at the table so I accepted and when they returned they had zero interest in eating anything else from this restaurant and I was in agreement. We asked that we not get any more food but it was already on the way so they boxed it up for us. Then I get the check and it’s $345 before the tip. Nope. Don’t go

    Vintage style hotel. Christmas Day dinner special menu is creative and delicious. Christmas dessert station is very beautiful and it has various customized desserts for the holiday. Servers are attentive but it seemed they double booked the same table to the different servers. We got drinks and other stuff twice with different servers. Also, not sure what is the $16 of benefit surcharge for on the bill. I got charged $7 more on the credit card compared to the amount showing on the bill (after tax).

    One of the best meals I've had in Los Angeles! You have to get the persimmon dish, the beef cheek, and the roasted carrots. Each has wonderful depth of flavor. Cocktail menu could use some work, but I'll be returning soon.

    From start to finish this restaurant is perfection! The greeting at the door was warm and inviting, and the service throughout impeccable. The food was so delicious. We started with the Portuguese chopped salad which is so balanced with flavors and texture, from crisp endive to small slices of potatoes, large flat beans, leeks and black olives in a lightly tart and spicy dressing. The persimmon and pomegranate salad was next and it was heavenly such that we could not leave a bit on the plate. Next came a soft, pillowy polenta with chanterelles and cheese, and the savory beef cheeks. There was not a morsel left! No room for dessert! All this in such a pretty place. We will return again soon I hope!

    Caldo Verde is a swank, hip, cozy retreat in DTLA. The Proper Hotel surrounds the restaurant with a classic yet chic atmosphere and visually interesting setting. The special Sunday menu from CURE was outstanding and the service was refreshingly great.
