Amazing food , took my family for brunch on a Sunday! Chilaquiles were amazing . Loved the atmosphere
Thank you for accommodating our requests. Service by Nick was outstanding!
I have been a regular at Fundamental L.A. from the beginning and wanted to try their new downtown place. the menu is terrific, they have a great cocktail list and the food was really nice. I would go gain
Love coming here when I want a quality meal and quick dining experience. Chicken salad is light and delicious. Burger is most and chicken torta is seasoned. Service can be a bit slow at times while on your lunch break.
First time eating at Fundamental, but definitely not my last. The 7th and Grand area is packed with good restaurant options so I hadn't made it to here before, but it came up on Open Table and I was looking for a new place to have a business lunch and it turned out to be a great choice.
We said inside although there is also outdoor seating on the patio. The menu upon first glance is pretty simple, breakfast items (including a breakfast burrito served all day, one of their signatures i'm told), sandwiches, and salads, plus some optional pre-made sides from their deli takeout case.
I'm currently on a 12-week meat and veggies program, so I had a kale caesar with grilled chicken and the tomato bisque, my lunch mate had the avocado toast, and we shared a side of the Brussel sprouts. Everything tasted delicious, very fresh and flavorful.
I am definitely planning to come back once I incorporate carbs back into my diet, because every sandwich I saw come out of the kitchen looked better than the last, and they all looked amazing. If they taste even half as good as they looked it will be worth the return trip to try them out.
I had lunch a few days prior at Bottega Louie a few doors down, which is great food but way too noisy to have an actual conversation in. Fundamental had the perfect laidback, cozy atmosphere to have a relaxing and enjoyable business lunch.
Tasty food and cocktails. Loved the tuna tostada and bone marrow dishes. Very friendly and attentive service.
For a Friday night, it was very quiet but the food was excellent and so was the service. It seems to be more of a breakfast and lunch place but I have to say the dinner fare was quite tasty.
Came here for brunch. The servers were nice but it was a very small menu.
Great service. The high top chairs are a little uncomfortable but everything else was nice.
The food menu is not extensive, but there is something for most tastes. We shared fried chicken sandwich, short rib pasta, and brussel sprouts, all were delicious!! The staff was very helpful. We would definitely go back the next time we are in LA.
I dined here for lunch during Dine LA Restaurant Week. The sandwich I had was just okay. The crust of the bread was really hard. I was not able to eat it. I ended up removing all of the crust and just ate the middle part of the bread. If a different bread was used, I would have liked it. The hostess was not very competent. I had made a reservation through Open Table. I told her as I walked in that I have a reservation. She seated us. One hour later, I received an email from Open Table saying "sorry, we missed you." I had to talk to the hostess to informed her that we had just finished eating and that we are here.
Brunch on Sunday for $15 can’t be beat. Avocado toast was phenomenal, as was chicken salad sandwich. Great sides. Wait staff was very accommodating on ingredient adjustments. No complaints at all.
Went for Sunday brunch, egg dishes are quite limited so if that’s what you are after, look elsewhere. Their house made toast is delicious. So are the breakfast potatoes and they did a great job with my scrambled eggs. The Bloody Mary was extremely bland, however.
Literally the best French toast I’ve ever had. Texture was perfect. Taste was perfect. Unbelievable.
The chilaquilas were also outstanding.
I’d be remiss not to mention that it was the worst Bloody Mary I’ve ever had... not sure what happened there; it was 9am on Saturday so maybe the bartender wasn’t there yet or something but ya... awful.
Great food, service, and ambiance
Food was delicious. We both enjoyed burger Brussels sprouts and potato salad and cookies. Great deal this week with DineLA but we will be back when it’s over. Also ordered 4 sandwiches to go for Hollywood bowl and were all scrumptious. Our friends loved them.
Went with a party of four. Server forgot about one person’s whole order. First forgot the drink, then told us that the entree was out after 10 mins, then forgot the side, and got the wrong dessert. Other than that the food was great! I’m sure it was just a one time error or an off day, so I will definitely be going back.
DineLa Week: We were greeted nicely, and seated quickly. Our waitress was nice and attentive, and our food was out quickly and correct. Lunch was an hour. I’ll be back for Happy Hour for sure.
Nice breezy seats outside on the patio. Servers were nice and courteous. Water was filled frequently. Food took some time to come out but it was made fresh. Tables could be bigger. Not much spacing between 2 person tables. With DineLA menu, it takes the regular lunch menus and adds dessert cookie and beverage for $1, that's the difference. I would come back! Lots of healthy options.
Excellent kale salad. Great service and atmosphere.
Seating and service were a little clumsy, but I think they'll figure it out. Food was good. I would go there again.
The food was great :) perfect for Sunday brunch with the coffee
Note the power lunch is for take out only. The pdf menu doesn't indicate that and doordash and ritual online order sites don't indicate it either.
Made a reservation for Father's Day. We requested outdoor seating, but when we arrived we asked to be seated inside since it was chilly. They were booked inside at the time, and we sat outside. We were a group of 5, seated at the far end of the patio. There were three other tables closer to the entrance with four heat lamps. We requested heat lamps and were told there weren't anymore available. I found it utterly ridiculous that with advance reservations, this restaurant wouldn't evenly distribute heat lamps among the outdoor tables. There was one table with two heat lamps and two empty tables with heat lamps but they wouldn't move a heat lamp for us. Ruined our experience. Otherwise the food was tasty but the service ruined the experience for us.
While the ambiance and food were good (my avocado toast was excellent), service kind of ruined it for our party. The hostess was accommodating and all the servers and runners and bus boys were nice. But service was just so slow and the restaurant wasn't even busy. It would take forever for our server to return to the table after we had requested something. It took a long time to get the check. And our waiter didn't even ask how our food was during the meal. Again, he was very friendly but we prefer not to sit around waiting when we have to go about the rest of our day.
Wonderful staff. Quick service. Best matcha.
Fantastic food! The perfect bistro spot DTLA has been waiting for.
We stopped by, for the 1st time, for an early dinner on Sunday. The restaurant is cozy and casual. We were there for dinner, but this place seems like it would be great for happy hour too. There were 4 of us and every dish ordered was fresh and delicious. We will come again.
Fundamental is a great day spot for drinks, lunch, brunch, or coffee with a friend. Food is so good and came out quickly. And service was great too. Will be back
Visited restaurant for breakfast .... fantastic! Fresh and so flavorful
Love the tots and the corn bread.
Went to Fundamental DTLA on a Saturday evening for some dinner with friends. Our server was super friendly and helpful and we sampled a great deal of the menu. We loved every single thing we ate and the cocktails and wine were fantastic! Highly recommend this for a great night out, with amazing food and a cool vibe.
Super casual breakfast with extraordinary ingredients and creative presentation. We were a few minutes early and were invited to have a seat till they opened. Phenomenal pastry selection.
We went for dinner and had such a lovely meal. We tried their “Orange” which was fun to taste something new and be immersed in a new menu. Our server was very knowledgeable and super attentive. Thanks for a great datenight!
Love this place! The food is incredible and the service is excellent. I’ve tried half the menu and it’s all delicious.
Food was great but not the service. Very slow and got our orders wrong.
