I stayed at the Courtyard, but walked 3 buildings down to have a better ambience of a meal. Food was served hot and fast. I give it a thumbs up👍

The bar area is very loud. Even sitting inside, you hear lots of noise from the bar.

We got seated next to a woman that doesn't have any etiquette, she was so loud and speaking so much profanity. We had to ask the staff to move us to a different table and our night completely changed.
The staff went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable. It was my husband and I's anniversary and they gave us bubbly and dessert. The food was great especially the pork chop my husband ordered.

Thank you again so much to all of you. You guys are amazing, world class!

The noice level was extraordinary in the bar area when was busy. Additionally there is an adjacent dining room with a nice restaurant sitting area but unfortunately it's wide-open and the noise level is as loud as it is at the bar. . It's not a good business setting. As a social local, the bartenders are great, very attentive and nice portions with the drinks. Decent wine list. The food was good but typical of Hotel type food. Previously several years ago this hotel had a much better bar area with a separate dining area that was good for business and more intimate. It also had upscale food that was above that typical of the hotel business. In summary I would you back for family or social. Restaurants in other hotels in the area are probably better for business.

Rude hostess. When mentioned reservations the hostess Response was that she didn't have the reservations and seemed bothered to take time with us. When seated by the kitchen. Didnt ask if seating was ok.

Husband's Cobb salad and my mushroom pizza were good. Banana bread pudding was superb. Great selection of draft beers, and wines. We sat at bar and watched baseball. Nice time.

The waitstaff were awesome. The soup of the day was delicious. The food was cooked perfectly. The drinks weren’t strong or provided a kick which made them overpriced but other than that, it was a good dining experience.

This was the only place to eat dinner at the hotel!! The location is right in the lobby with no walls. The food was extremely over priced and the portion size was very small . I ordered a french onion soup which was not bad, also ordered a beet salad which was $12 and so small, I actually laughed when it arrived at the table. I wanted a meat, however, I was not about to pay $27 for a small chicken breast that came with no sides. Everything was a la carte!!
If you are hungry, do not eat here!!

We were seated in the back of the dining room for no apparent reason, since we were the only ones there. It was also quite cold. It took a long time for our server to even come to greet us at our table. Our order took way too long. And my half-full glass of water was bussed without asking if I wanted more water. The food was good, but it's not enough to get me to go back.

Overall pretty good. Nothing outstanding but service was quick and attentive. I love the new look of the entire hotel. Great for dinner the night before an early flight.

We especially enjoyed the vegetable barley soup, so much that we ordered a second bowl!

This was our last night in Los Angeles. We were staying in a hotel by the airport, but there was no good evening dining option at our hotel. I googled gourmet dining near LAX and when I found Costero I knew it would be good. Our server was very kind and attentive and so were the other staff members. I had questions for the server and she would ask kitchen staff for me. The wine list was very good and our server had a good knowledge of the wines. The open decor still allowed for quiet dining. Our food was excellent. I would definitely return and tell others about this high quality restaurant.

Service was very slow. Food was ok, but cold by the time it was served. Not very much selection. Would not eat here again.

Maybe we came on a bad night. We had to go and get a server after waiting 20mins. A server literally walked to our table, paused then just walked away without even a hello!. I must say, the server that finally helped us was a sweetheart. Unfortunately, she didn't give us her name, nor did she have a name tag, so I'm not able to thank her by name. My food was fine....no complaints. My wife's lasagne on the other hand......let's just hope she decides not to give a review.
