Service was slow for a restaurant that was not busy at the time we sat down. 10+ min to get water, 10 more min for the actual server to greet us and take initial drink orders. Another 15 min before drinks were served. Server was friendly and knowledgeable. Overall a good dining experience. Food and portions were good and generous. We do plan on staying at the hotel again in the future and will give them another shot at dinner :)

Wonderful in every way. perfectly cooked sea bass and short rib dinners. Lovely dining space and very cool downtown L.A. vibe! Our waiter, Paul, made our engagement dinner celebration even better because he knew the menu so well and was incredibly helpful. We want to go back soon! :)

I tried the Fish and Chips with a side of Brussel sprouts.
The fish was excellent! Fries - nice & crispy. Brussels - amazing!

1) gnats flying around.
2) waitress inattentive.
3) ordered medium rare steak, received a overcooked steak.
4)asked for dessert to go, was supposed to be a warm brownie with ice cream, received a cold hard brownie and no ice cream.
5) hostess on cell phone, inattentive
6) over priced for level of service, quality of food, and gnats
7) both waitress and hostess made aware of gnats- didn’t acknowledge or apologize or attempt to mitigate

It was good food but the problem is that it says brunch till a certain time on a Saturday and when I came it was only on a Sunday and the restaurant was closed and bar area was only open. I would have just left but I was going to the pool area at the same hotel.

Victoria was a fantastic server. Knowledgeable and personable. She was laughing with us by the time the check came. There was no rush to order, even being a Saturday night. All courses were beautiful and delicious. We will definitely come back again.

Good selection of buffet meal. Samantha was very attentive and efficient. Since my son and I are both allergic to cheese, Samantha gladly took our request for scrambled eggs and eggs over easy without cheese. She made sure my coffee is still hot and refilled our water when it needed to be refilled. Excellent dining experience!

I would say I had one of the best steaks ever at a restaurant! So tender and done perfectly. Inside the Indigo Hotel. Great location. Only a couple of blocks from the Staples Center. Would definitely go back again!

Great food, great service. Gus was awesome.
Only had appetizers so not sure what mains are like. They looked interesting when waiters passed by delivering to other table. Would definitely dine again. Short walk to LA Live.

The food was bland, chicken dry and tasteless, and the fries seemed like they had been frozen. I normally finish my food even if I don’t like it much, but I couldn’t even finish my meal. It also made my stomach a little upset the whole rest of the day. Really disappointed.

We came here for Valentine's day with a preset tasting menu that I didn't even look at...
All I can say is WOW, the food was superb! The lobster bisque at this location was amazing! Every taste left you wanting more and more...the appetizers were pretty decent.
But the main course...the ribeye...with sunchoke purée & chimichurri was soooo delicious. It was juicy, savory, and full of delicious flavors! To die for. Dessert was also very good! All dishes were beautifully laid out and designed!

I would definitely come back!

Went here for dinela.
Good, attentive service.
The food was just average. Nothing really memorable. My sea bass was unremarkable and the beef we got was rather dry.
This didn't impress me or my friend enough to re-visit.

It was a bit disappointing because they were out of one of the 3 featured desserts, which I had ordered and had to be replaced. Also, we were never served their delicious bread until we saw it being served to a nearby table, so we asked for some & finished the meal with their creative way to serve bread.

I had a reservation for 6 people for 7:30pm. We were never seated until 8:20 when another party larger than ours had a reservation at 8pm and their table was ready before ours. Poor planning on the part of management in organizing their seating. I had the Beet salad - the flavors were fabulous but there wasn't much of it. The Sea Bass was great! We waited an extremely long time for our deserts to be served. The manager did buy a round of drinks for the table but we sat at the bar so long waiting that most people either didn't order another drink or didn't finish the one he offered. I would not go back.

Went to enjoy DineLA at Metropole Bar and Kitchen. We had a terrible experience from the beginning to end of our meal. First, we were given the lunch menu, then finally after 15 minute wait, given only 2 dinner menus for our party of 4. Service was really poor and very long waits for food. Food presentation looked good, but each entree served was lukewarm to cold. The food was just above mediocre. I ordered the sea bass which was way over cooked, yet cold by the time I received it. The lava cake was over cooked with no lava flowing when sliced. Manager was very nice and ended up apologizing for everything. Overall, a bad experience. Would never go again nor will I ever recommend.

Outstanding service at the prix fixe Restaurant Week menu. Food was good and presentation was very good. Only two things were unexpected at an upscale dinner---they asked us to use the same fork for appetizers and entree and butter dish (three beautiful and delicious butters) and the bread and butter plate were not cleared before dessert. Bravo for decor and prohibition theme planting the restaurant into the city it is serving historically.

I loved the food and ambiance but service was so rushed. The server was nice but I felt as if he was a little pushy trying to hurry me with my meals. My dessert came out early as I was finishing up my main course.

It's a restaurant inside a hotel which isn't made clear in any description. Food and service were good. Not good for special occasions or dates. Good for business when nothing else is available.

The service was great from start to finished, Nancy the host was amazing show us to our seats and explained the buffet and a bit about the menu. Chris our server was great answered any questions I’d had, the food was amazing eggs cooked perfectly potato hash crisp and not to mention their fresh squeezed orange juice and fresh brewed coffee and not too mention their complementary early birth smoothie. Frank the manager was great he made sure that visit was welcomed definitely recommend metropole bar and kitchen.
