Public School - Downtown Los Angeles
Book your next event with us
we arrived five minutes early with a reservation for a table for 8. turns out they sat a separate party of two at our reserved table and wanted us to sit at the same table and stick two more chairs at the head of the table.
Host proceeded to show some real attitude when we told him we would not sit there.
the food was good but the service was terrible. had to ask multiple times for plates, silverware, more water. waitress ignored us most of the time.
A group of 4 friends planned to have lunch at the Public School in downtown LA and later on to go to a show. We came from far away and did not find any parking spot around. I called the restaurant and they suggested me to do Valet Parking ($7). We waited for more than 15 minutes to be helped, and NO ONE showed up.
After 20 min. I called the restaurant again explaining the situation and we had to cancel the lunch. We were very upset about the situation and did not have a chance to eat there.
This place was great and the service was exceptional. Loved that they have games at the table to play. Will definitely go back.
New Year’s Eve dinner
Celebrated my bday. Great service. Great ppl. Great vibes.
Great place for dinner with friends! Food was great and so was the service!
The service was perfect.
We had a great meal and a great time. The Quinoa salad and the crispy chicken sandwich were amazing. We also tried the sublime Mexican lager which was really good. Waiter was fantastic. He let us sample a beer we asked about, was very friendly and attentive. They have games to play and a creative theme.
Came for Sunday brunch. Great food. Definitely understaffed. Maybe add one more server to the floor
I'm a fan of Public School restaurants, 213, 310 and 818. Have had good experiences. Good food and drinks!
Everything was delicious! Sports bar that doesn't feel oppressively like a sports bar. Will definitely go back.
Went for a get together with former colleagues. As we age we need seats with back support not stools for 2 hour lunch. Menu was interesting but limited in variety. Would try them again.
Love the playful environment and consistently good food.
Great food and service- would for sure go back!
Great location , friendly environment , a wide range of menu options and adequate portions leaving you satisfied
Went to brunch on a Sunday, both the kitchen and bar were backed up. Took forever to receive our drinks and food. Messed up on my order and I had to wait a little longer.
While we were seated right away the restaurant was either understaffed or something. 3 of the four orders came out at the same time; the 4th order - poached eggs and toast was 30 minutes later after multiple requests and assurances it was "coming right up" we also asked for a side of ketchup and thousand island dressing which took more than 30 minutes. While the food was tasty the service was well below par. No attempt by management to even acknowledge our issues - oh, and the didn't charge for the poached eggs...I like the location for breakfast before a Rams game but not sure if I would be back. Also, the Valet parking was full, but they did allow us to park the car on the street. This was a Sunday morning at 11am. The restaurant had the hostess delivering food - again I believe they were short staffed but no care from management.
Was a little too loud. Sat next to two very loud groups.
The food was okay, the service was average, and the bar was painfully slow getting out drinks. Overall, it was an average dining experience.
Always a great meal and fantastic service! We will be back!
Had reservations at 1 they kindly informed when I arrived that they were having a private event st 2 I felt relished and I thought it was rude I want be back
Great service, reasonably price, and a great location with cheap parking nearby. I’d highly recommend for anyone looking for a bottomless Bloody Mary brunch.
Excellent burgers and fabulous taster tots!!!
Loved the happy hour offerings however service was less than satisfactory.
The restaurant was very empty considering it was lunch time 1PM. We were seated right away. The waiter didn't check on us after we received our food and we had to flag someone else to get ketchup for our fries. Also, after we finished eating, we couldn't find our waiter and we were in a hurry to get back to work.
Tyler was an amazing server! Knowledgeable about the food and made great suggestions. Everything tasted delicious and we are looking forward to the next time we head to PS 213
So enjoyed our firs time at school today. Our servers were Lisette and Joelle and they couldn't have been more accommodating. The menu was eclectic and delicious. The bloody mary's were outstanding.
Would come back in a heartbeat.
Great Happy Hour shareable bites and drinks. Good place for a group!
Food took over 30 minutes to come during lunch hour
Trendy spot to eat at. Very fun and laid back environment.
Restaurant menu had variety. Food came out quickly for lunch and everything tasted great. Place is a little noisy for a lunch business meeting, but overall was great.
Such a fun atmosphere and delicious food! Highly recommend the buffalo cauliflower bites and the PB & J burger! Service was amazing. Will definitely be back.
Overall, my experience was ok. The food was ok but service could have been better.
Although our waiter took so long to bring our drinks and forgot our appetizer. I think it was the kitchen who forgot to make it. But he was apologetic and I feel his sincerity with it. And took off the appetizer off our bill. That’s how a good restaurant should handle a situation. We would definitely be coming back. Their cocktails are amazing!
Great and creative options for lunch. I had the Chorino Pizza - pizza with Chorizo! What could be better?? It was delish! its a thin crust (which I love) and the perfect balance of flavors.
This restaurant is so much fun! The atmosphere is spot on and I loved the menu’s and cocktail napkins. Everything the servers recommended was FANTASTIC!!! Well Done!
Another good day for lunch at Public School. It never dissappoints.
The food was really good, but the service was not good at all. I feel like the waiter forgot about us.
Wonderful experience! It got busy and we lost our waiter for a while, but overall, excellent dining experience!
