Faith & Flower is a contemporary Los Angeles restaurant located in the WaterMarke Tower in DTLA’s South Park district. The restaurant’s name pays homage to the two major renaissance periods—the 1920s and modern day—that have fundamentally shaped the Downtown Los Angeles community, with “Flower” referring to the street on which the restaurant lies today, and “Faith” for the street’s alleged name during the early 1920s.

What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.8

Faith & Flower is a Financial District restaurant where everything is over the top, but done right. Use it for pretty much anything, from date night to dinner with your boss. And whatever you do, get a cocktail or two.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

From the first gesture of my waitress, I could tell this was not going to be a great dining experience. The young woman wearing glasses acknowledged my request for ice water, then immediately proceeded to pour lukewarm water to the top of my water glass. I respectfully reiterated that I wanted ice water, so she brought me a cup of ice. She seemed to not understand that it probably wasn't my job to pour my own water (although i would have gladly done that had she provided me with a pitcher or a carafe - but no). Luckily, the hostess passed by my table shortly thereafter, and I figured to save both me and the waitress an hour of awkwardness, I requested a different waiter. The hostess (pleasant and professional) willingly obliged. A few minutes later, a lanky male approached my table with a "Was there something I can help you with?" I asked for an iced tea with sugar on the side. Simple, right? A long while later, an iced tea arrived - no sugar - delivered by a bus person. Fifteen minutes went by before I saw my waiter again. When he finally came back to take my order, I requested sugar. He said, "I didn't send out sugar because you said you didn't want any!" Now, I could understand if the waiter misheard me - that can happen. But when I clearly indicated for the second time that I wanted sugar, I would think that would trigger some recognition on the part of the waiter that he had screwed up...Nope. Not this waiter. Onto the next waiter. A very professional young woman (Natalie) approached my table, appropriately apologetic, and took matters into her own, very able hands. If it weren't for her, the meal would have been a total loss. She sent a complimentary hamachi crudo course and 20% was taken off the bill without my asking. The food overall was underwhelming. Not the caliber I was expecting. Everything (hamachi, squash/artichoke salad, hanger steak) was drenched in mediocre sauces and presented as though it were very precious. I wouldn't go back.

Food was well prepared/seasoned. We ordered the set menu for Dine LA. Was too noisy inside so sat outside instead. Much better but had to ask server twice to lower music volume. Overall, loved our time at the restaurant!

Nice hip spot. Great decor inside - though it's best in the very back room (tables for larger groups I think) or near the bar. Service is as it should be. The menu is solid for this kind of resteraunt - modern without being actually innovative. The food is really quite good...but shy of being fantastic. Of course the pricing is bold . You can definitely get better absolute value in DTLA, but considering the location, the decor and the service, it's within the ballpark.

This place is horrendously noisy...so much so, that our server couldn't even hear our order correctly. She insisted that I ordered fried green beans as a starter when I absolutely did not. No one at the table heard me order damn green beans either, but this woman stood her ground and irritably retorted, "No. You ordered them, remember?" Like, no B---- I don't remember because I didn't. YOU ordered them for me! As the cherry on top, I told her I had a seafood allergy and she legit recommended steak tartare that had fin fish in it... she then proceeded to tell me that fin fish was not seafood. It was just called "fin fish" AKA bonito flakes AKA smoked fish. Can someone please educate their staff?

The food here is great. Unfortunately for them, this is in downtown LA and there's pleeennnty of great restaurants so I don't actually have a desire to revisit. Maybe I'll sit at the bar?

Hostess was very welcoming and kind. The server on the other hand was not very helpful. After taking our order she only came to the table when the food was dropped off, then to drop the bill at the end of our meal. Despite the mediocre service the paella that we ordered was as bland and dull as I've ever had. It tasted more like paella ragu - just plain tomato sauce. Definitely don't order the paella, very underwhelming.

Overall we thought we had a nice dinner although were a little disappointed with the food. Not great but not bad... just ehh. Considering the price and the meals we’ve experienced around the country, the quality of food was only fair. Take this review with a grain of salt as personal preference is entirely subjective.
Service was good atmosphere was great.

We sat at the bar first and made the tail end of happy hour - we got the deviled eggs after seeing a bunch of reviews about how good they were. They did not disappoint!! For dinner we had the steak tartare which was the best steak tartare we’ve ever had. The seafood paella was phenomenal and we also split the duck breast. Everything was exceptional. Will definitely be back when we’re back in town!

Faith & Flower is a stunningly beautiful restaurant. It is clear that particular attention was placed on getting the aesthetics just right. It is also obvious that the owner and staff understand what it takes to create an exceptional dining experience. Our Server Shiva was a delight, navigating the balance between affable and professional beautifully. Our Sommelier Chanel was incredibly knowledgeable and suggested a pairing that was spot on. She clearly employed her thoughtful understanding of the menu and of the nuances inherent in each wine in making very informed wine pairing suggestions. The staff is attentive but not overly obtrusive. Faith & Flower is made for memorable dining experiences.
