San Laurel is one of the flagship restaurants in Chef José Andrés’ collection at Conrad Los Angeles. Here, he effortlessly combines his signature forward-thinking approach to Spanish cuisine with the gorgeous produce found at Southern California’s year-round farmers’ markets. San Laurel is open daily for breakfast and dinner service.

The restaurant’s interior combines organic, earthy tones and natural wood finishes with richer hues to complement what’s on the plate: the flavors of Spain as seen through a California lens.

    The San Laurel is a gorgeous - semi/rooftop feel restaurant in the Conrad with amazing views of the city, most notably the Walt Disney Concert Hall. This was our first time here in a party of 4. Easy to reserve on Open Table. Graciously greeted by the two of the hosts and seated at our table next to the large glass doors to the outside. Highly recommend for the night time views. Elizabeth was a very warm and welcoming server who answered our questions about the menu with proficiency. We ordered: Jamon Iberco con pan de tomate: The ham was beautifully displayed, lovely slices of imported fatty aged meat, the toast was perfectly crisp like a cracker with a delicious tomato puree spread. Beef tartare - Which is actually vegan - this is beef steak tomatoes, which I was pleasantly surprised, each bite packed with flavor - MY FAVORITE dish of the night. Also ordered for the table: Gambas, Duck Breast, Fish, and Waygu (all prepared to perfection with such amazing and delicate complimentary sauces). In addition we ordered the asparagus and a side of potato puree. The drinks were delicious, especially the Los Compadre. We had such a lovely experience, and we are looking forward to return. :) Parking in the Conrad/Valet, also a great place to go before concerts in the L.A. Music Center or Disney Concert Hall.

    We loved San Laurel. The service was excellent. Our server made suggestions and was a great guide to our dining experience. And the food - WOW! Standouts were the Tomato Carpaccio and the Crudo. But everything was excellent. We went on a rainy Monday so it was pretty quiet which we loved.

    We had a dinner of small plates that was wonderful including gambas and duck breast. The jamon Iberico was very tasty but oddly served with about 20 small (roughly 1 inch square) slices on a plate with no garnish or bread.

Johnny, our waiter, was very friendly and knowledgeable and all of the other wait staff were kind and helpful. The food was the best food I have ever had, each course was perfectly prepared and so delicious. I have no bad things to say about the experience we had at San Laurel. Absolutely amazing.

    Despite have a reservation we had to wait 45 minutes for our table. Food was average and drink recommendations were not great. Wanted a less sweet drink and recommended drink was very sweet. Big promises but not matched in delivery of food and service.

    This was not our first meal here, and we have never been disappointed. We had a late reservation after a concert at Disney Hall on a Tuesday, so the restaurant was rather empty, yet the server and other staff members did not rush us and made us feel very comfortable and welcome. The food was outstanding again.

    Food was very good. But, they said we had to get to restaurant before 12:00 noon when they close. That is not true. We had an 11:45 reservation. They were still seating people at 1:00 pm. If they really close at 12:00 noon they should not be seating people an hour later. Apparently the bat is open later, and if you are at the bar, they will seat you in the restaurant.

    While the cocktails are incredible and the service excellent, the food is a 50:50 crapshoot; we had 2 dishes that were excellent (gem salad and flank steak) and 2 dishes that were extremely disappointing and NOT worth the price charged (beefsteak tomato tartare and the shrimp entree)....overall, an "ok" experience that was really overpriced

    The venue looks great and has a cool vibe. The menu looked interesting with not so typical choices. But the food itself was very disappointing. Every item looked great visually, but left a lot to be desired for flavor: too bland, too salty, too meh. And the service started out great with our server very attentive and helpful, but once he took our order we never saw him again until I flagged him down for the check (other people served and cleared the food). Not going back.

    Amazing food! Everything we tried was absolutely delicious, including the drinks. Our server was very attentive and knowledgeable, with all of his recommendations being delicious. We had a show after dinner, and they were very attentive to our time crunch, so we were able to eat, relaxy, and enjoy with plenty of time to walk over for our show. The only downside is that the portions are quite small for how pricey the dishes are, but the quality of the ingredients and interesting preparations of food made up for this. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants a nice dinner before going to a show nearby!

    This was our 2nd time at San Laurel and it was just as memorable as the first time. The physical setting is gorgeous, the staff is exemplary and the food is innovative, delicious and beautiful to look at. Our waiter, Alexander, was also our waiter the last visit and we were so happy to see him again. Alexander was attentive and so helpful in making both food and wine recommendations. We will definitely be back again soon.

    The people and service were superb. The setting was quiet and inviting. The food was good but seemed like the chef was trying too hard. I was disappointed that the delicious lamb chops were served on a curry like sauce that completely ruined the dish for me. I did not see any mention of the sauce on the menu. So I took the chops home and washed them off and reheated them. I don’t know why such wonderful lamb needed any other flavor.

    We had a party of 9 with some tight time requirements, and they made it with time to spare. The service was stellar. Not fussy, just done properly. The food was excellent. I’d give it a 4.5 if I had the option. And I will return there as a party of 2.

    Celebrating my wife’s birthday at San Laurel was an exceptional experience. Each dish we tried was a testament to culinary perfection. The duck dish stood out as the best we’ve ever tasted, setting a new standard for us. But what truly captivated our palates was the lamb with its rich flavors, perfectly complemented by the exquisite eggplant. San Laurel didn’t just serve food; they created an unforgettable journey of tastes. Highly recommend for special occasions or any day you crave exceptional cuisine.
