LOCALA Kitchen + Bar
At LOCALA we take the best of Los Angeles, and our locally-born, Spago-trained Chef Karo Patpatyan puts his twist on street classics, as well as taking fine-dining staples and giving them that LA flavor. This is sharing food. This is eating food. This is late-night-long-lunch-hangover-brunch food. We want to represent the foundation and future of the diverse and inclusive town that is Los Angeles. And, of course, make delicious food that you’ll want to keep coming back for.
the neighborhood is transitional, the food is great.
Great food, Great Vibes, in LaLa Land's Locala! I recommend trying the breakfast sandwich and their ultimate burrito ! The staff were friendly, very chill! In addition, to be safe, do feel free to reserve your seating before or during your trip.
I only knew this place from its pictures on-line and that it was close to a concert I was going to. When we walked in, the well-dressed and handsome host sat us at a very comfortable table with pillows and bench seating. The waiter arrived quickly after and was very nice. We placed a drink order and were immediately impressed. The cocktails we had were excellent. Then we had a couple appetizers and the waiter suggested wisely: the bruschetta with avocado was excellent. And while the tuna tartar wasn't very spicy, it was good with the wonton triangles. I had the salmon and my date had the chicken and they were both excellent. It got a little busy and we had some trouble getting our waiter's attention at the end; but overall, the place was surprisingly excellent. We will definitely be back again.
Excellent service and delicious food! Such creative menu items full of flavor and ranging from small meals to stacked sandwiches!
i love their curry cauliflower bowl, amazing. you can add salmon or chicken great textures.
I wanted to try this restaurant so I drove from downey to LA for the host to tell me that the restaurant was booked. Mind you, I had made a reservation weeks back. The manager came out and said that the hotel had sent them a bunch of reservations for that night (sat night) that they weren’t aware of. Later, a waitress came out and said that even if we got a table our food would take at least an hour to be ready, which made sense since the restaurant was at its capacity. My partner and I left to a different restaurant. Never going here again. Total disappointment.
Ive visited this restaurant twice, once for breakfast and once for dinner. I found breakfast was a much better meal here.
Great decor and ambiance, excellent service and food, a memorable experience.
Had a great time here
Excellent food and service. I ordered the DineLA. The Ribeye had a nice char and chimichurri. Seasoned well. My date had the Branzino filet which she really enjoyed. Very moist and tender. The octopus had an amazing citrus sauce and was served in a half coconut. They also gave us an extra dessert as a bonus since we were celebrating our engagement.
Carlos was our fantastic server. Very knowledgeable, attentive, and professional.
Will definitely come back!
Local is amazing. Great food and excellent service and just an all-around wonderful vibe.
Excellent. Maybe more vegetable options on the menu. Still excellent.
Food at LOCALA is great!! Servers clearly took time to learn the dishes because they had great recommendations. Crunchy shrimp tacos, avocado bruschetta, steak w chimmichuri, branzino, all really good. I’ll definitely be back.
I will book again without a doubt, food, service, ambience everything was perfect!
We came here for dinner before a Clippers game against my better judgment as there was exactly zero people in the restaurant when we arrived. I made clear to our server i had peanut allergy, and he alerted the kitchen, but when my entree arrived it likely inadvertently had some peanut based ingredients contained therein, causing an allergic reaction reaction, and ruining the rest of my evening.
Birthday lunch. Very lovely space within the Mayfair Hotel. Highly recommended
Just enjoyed the fries; the filet mignon & ribeye was dry.
Super bad service. Terrible service. Quite disappointed. Right after we walked in, the waitress just told us " you can seat wherever you want" instead of leading us to the table, which seems to be very unprofessional for a restaurant like this. And the waitresses didn't periodically checked on us so we had to wait for a long time for services. There were another table without water for the longest time. The guy had to walk to the front entrance and tell the staff that they would like to have water.
Although the food was good but the service was just TERRIBLE for a restaurant like this. Not coming back again
This restaurant is so cute. The food was delicious, my only complaint is that I had reviewed the menu before going to restaurant and decided on the Spanish Chorizo & Potato Frittata only to be told that it was taken off the menu, thankfully the Prime Rib hash was really good. The restaurant was pretty empty during our visit so the attention we got from the staff was great. I will return.
Amazing dinner and service. Been a while since I’ve been to a place that made me feel this way.
I had the steak. Very good flavor but small portions. My friend had the chicken sandwich and enjoyed it.
The waitress was nice but the service was poor. There could not have been more than ten people in the restaurant but it took a while to take the order. I had to ask for the check.
I had a $50 open table gift card. When I went to use it, it was no longer in my profile. Eve had no record of it. I ended up having to pay for the meal. This is not entirely the fault of the restaurant. I remember when open table mailed paper checks that could be used at any restaurant for face value. The new rewards system sucks. I’ve had problems several times. The servers and or managers have no clue what I’m talking about. Open Table needs to fix this issue. I’m sure that I’m not the only person whose had problems with the new system.
If you're looking for a quiet place to go for a business meal, this is a good option because it's not crowded, has a decent amount of menu options (including healthy choices), and the decor is beautiful. Just don't expect prompt service. We were one of three tables in the entire restaurant and both the service and food took forever. Great ambiance, pretty decent food, not so great service.
The food was absolu
Great brunch spot! The food was great and the waitress was attentive with the bottomless mimosas
Celebrated my best friends birthday last night. Had a wonderful experience. The food was fantastic and the service was spot on. Definitely going to put Eve on my list of places to go if I want to impress. Thank you guys.
Great dinner! Pork belly is delicious
3 star restaurant in a 3 star hotel, decent eat if you’re staying at the hotel but I wouldn’t go back here for another date or special event.
The ambiance had a modern Great Gatsby feel. Everything from the starter dish to dessert was amazing. My husband and I had the DineLA menu so we can try a little bit of everything at a great deal ($39 with wine or 3 course for $29 without wine). The tuna tar tar was delicious (I must add I am a picky eater and rarely eat seafood so for me to like the tuna tar tar speaks volumes). The staff were very welcoming and friendly. Would highly recommended and would come back! So far this has been the best restaurant out of five we have tried during DineLA!
Beautiful dining room, friendly staff and good food. Heard one patron tell the waiter that if he were the chef she would tell him never to leave. We found the service a little slow considering how few parties were dining. But also considering how few people were there, it was very, very loud.
It's a lovely dining room that requires some character development? The food and service were good, we enjoyed ourselves but its missing something? That Buzz - how to stand out
Great food, ambiance and service. Just needs some more customers. We were the only ones there from 5:30 to 7:00!
What an unexpected gem! Loved the decor of the entire first floor and the restaurant, located in the Mayfair Hotel. Very art deco, high-end, glamourous design. Food was amazing, we loved every mouthful, from gazpacho soup, to short ribs, to melt-in-your-mouth desserts. I went during DineLA week or I probably would not have heard of it. Wonderful service too! I thought the cocktails were a little pricey, but otherwise, loved the place.
Eve is such a nice restaurant, the service is amazing. We really enjoyed the dine LA menu, the food options and food quantity exceed our expectations, the pasta and desert was the best. I will be visiting this place again, the bar next to the restaurant looks really cool and its all together. I over heard someone say that the restaurant had amazing drinks.
Four of us all with different entrees-duck ragout, chicken, scallops and filet mignon. All were excellent with generous portions. Appetizers-duck confit and spicy tuna were wonderful. Our server, Shujana was delightful and knowledgeable. The hotel lobby and lounge areas are worth taking a look at. If you are going to be in DTLA it’s a great place to dine.
Service: Even at the end of a long day, you can these people care about their customers. The manager was checking on everyone to make sure all was well.
Food: Had the roasted chicken which came with a side of mashed potatoes and some tomato based sauce/cream. The sauce I didn’t care for but to each their own. The mashed potatoes were good but I couldn’t tell if they were from scratch or a box; still good.
For dessert I had the Red Velvet churros with a hazelnut-chocolate dipping sauce. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. Hats off to whomever invented this.
Ambiance: Classy, clean, and spotless. The decor was nice. The pillows at the end are super comfortable. One thing I’d ask for is to turn down the music a little more, and install some tint on the main doors as cars coming down the hill blind customers sitting at the end.
Value: Chicken was a little overpriced in my honest opinion, but I’m not from around here so I don’t know actual costs.
Enjoyable brunch. Thanks
The actual place is beautiful and very trendy. The food was ok, not bad but I was expecting more since it had more than 4 stars reviews everywhere. It was nice to try something new but I don’t think I would go back
The food was good, especially the grilled octopus appetizer and the filet. The staff was also very nice. However, niceness is no substitute for competence, and we waited 20 minutes to get our cocktails (and it was not even crowded), then when they came, one glass was chipped and another had lipstick marks on it. Also, 2 of the 3 credit cards we used were overcharged! I'd like to see this restaurant get their act together and focus on the basics of efficient, accurate service so they can capitalize on their good menu and friendly staff.
One of the best in DTLA. Delicious food, friendly service, great prices, free parking, what more could you ask for? Also, it’s located inside the newly renovated Mayfair Hotel so there’s so much to see before / after dining. Would highly recommend!
