Building upon the celebrated NoMad in New York, for the first restaurant outside of their hometown, Chef Daniel Humm and Restaurateur Will Guidara have reimagined their vision of dining within the grand hotel in Downtown L.A.

An inviting space for dining throughout the day and evening, The NoMad’s sunlit, casually-elegant restaurant and bar are on the ground floor of the hotel. It sits beneath the building’s original, 1920s blue and gold Italianate ceiling which has been meticulously restored to its full grandeur. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all served in the space, with the Giannini Bar connected for a pre- or post-meal drink.

Despite having reservations, it took almost an hour to be seated. The hosts acknowledged the problem but was unable to offer a solution. It took 40 minutes for any kind of management appearance, at which point they finally offered drink service. No indication was made that they would be comping the drinks despite their inability to seat us. No offer was made to provide snacks or appetizers while we waited. Once seated, the overall atmosphere was fun and energetic. All six guests, from four different countries, commented on the intense over-salting of virtually every dish served. A disappointing night out in my home town for sure. Maybe I'll just stick to their bar next time.

This was early Christmas dinner with my folks. Beautiful space. Lovely staff. The dishes were creative and tasty. Loved the truffle risotto, eggplant and scallops. Wanted to like the duck, but aside from the breast, the meat was very rare and impossible to get off the bone). Also the three deserts were very similar. Would have preferred more variety. Still, we enjoyed our meal.

The environment/ambiance was unique and delightful. Like dining in an elegant living room. Tables far apart. Love seats and interesting chairs. Easy to converse with our own party, and could only imagine what diners around us were taking about.

The food was soooooo good. The chicken and accompaniments were so delectable we wanted more, more, more, especially of the rice melange. The calamari was also delicious, in a creaming sauce, like no calamari we’d ever had.

NoMad is a special restaurant. We look forward to our next visit.

Service was only good until a larger party was seated next to us, and then our server ignored us for the rest of the night. Like, literally, standing next to us to chat with the larger party and avoiding all our attempts to get his attention. The food was decent, but not great. The scallops were excellent, but the fried chicken was bland.

The food was quite good. The wine list and service were exceptional. We go out on Thanksgiving every year and, as a former server, I understand the annoyance. The service did not feel like a holiday at all. The ambience was lovely.

This was my second visit and I was not disappointed. Though my first dinner there was on the Mezzanine level when that was open. And that felt like a more elegant experience because looking down on the main floor offered the ambiance without the same noise level as below. There were four of us and we had to lean in hard to hear each other talk. I don't recall music last time or perhaps not at the same volume level. The food was excellent as were the cocktails. We started at the bar so once we identified the bartender who prepared our drinks we insisted that our waiter have him make all future orders! And our waiter was courteous and very professional. An entirely great experience.

WE SAW ADELLE. *cough* sorry. I took my wife and her best friend here for her 30th birthday as I had been here once with a friend. They absolutely loved everything about it. The food, the drinks, the service, the vibe. It was great. We went with the family style chicken (this is an absolute must try, it's what they're known for), the fava bean hummus, and shishito peppers. Everything was amazing.

It was a last minute decision to grab a small bite and a cocktail before catching a flight. I lived in Los Angeles 10 years ago and I was pleasantly surprised at how downtown was continually transitioning into an urban center. Transition unfortunately takes prisoners and LA is still coming to turns with residual effects of gentrification. It remains a journey for the city.
Nomad is in a beautiful historic building (I believe it was the Bank of Italy before becoming Bank of America). The cocktails were exceptional (I know a good manhattan) and the room is out of this world. It seeps of old Hollywood super glam-pre regency luxury. If you like the golden age, go here. Don’t walk, run to Nomad.
Try the sliders- no need for catsup. Great starters, all very flavorful.
Although the room looks dressy, I went in my Vancouver attire and no shade was thrown. I assume anything from a gown to a catsuit would work in this amazing room.
Do go to the restroom regardless- the vault is there and still in tact.
Our server was stellar and she knew the products quite well. She is an elegant woman and made me proud to haves lived in that awesome city.
So if you live in Los Angeles or just passing through, carve out some time to visit Nomad. You will be pleasantly surprised. I had a visceral reaction to my experience there. I was also with the best company ever.
Bring the cards. Fair but not cheap. Tip appropriately as this is not an easy room to work.
