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.

The ambiance was warm and welcoming with interesting props and decor with countless individual dining compartments. The service was excellent as we counted over a dozen separate servers attending our table. The culinary faire was what attracted me (Santa Barbara Uni and Grilled squid) and the individual dishes were mostly on point. However, I was left wanting for the diminutive portion sizes and I could only recommend The Nomad to those who care not what they spend on a meal.

The salad had too much vinaigrette and the steak wasn’t hot. The poached egg and cauliflower entree were good. Service always food too. Gorgeous decor.

What a find! In the middle of dtla and only a year old, the Nomad hotel has a great lounge-like restaurant in the middle of the lobby. The ambiance is chic 1930’s with a modern take. . . Couches with pillows accompanied by chairs opposite for table seating, a beautiful high-ceiling crown-molded stunning ivory colored background, fresh flowers—stunning.

We both had the burger which was good not amazing and is a signature dish—bun to bread-y and burger pretty tiny and only four pickled veggies with it but only 14.00. We also shared a sunchoke appetizer which was good.

Our server was amazing, pleasant and great. This is an amazIng spot to share a cocktail and an app for such a reasonable price. Valet 10.00

The ambiance was great. The menu is smaller. We had the fried chicken, scallops, and veggies with hummus. All of the food was fresh and tasted delicious. The wine selection was great. The service was good, but we felt they were trying to push us out towards the end.

My husband and I dined at the NoMad before a concert on Saturday night and we loved it. The atmosphere and dining area is comfortable and inviting. We found it easy to converse and enjoy the wonderful food. Our server was excellent and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. We will return!

While I missed eating upstairs, the Nomad restaurant is phenomenal. Food, service, vibe, wine list....it delivers. It's expensive; but for LA probably reasonable. The chicken is almost as good as the NYC chicken....still incredible (and a little less money now that there isn't foie gras). The ambiance and design detail is incredible.

Service was exceptional, the staff was very attentive and well informed. The venue was beautiful and seductive. The food was good but nothing that stood out enough to make me want to order it again. I would have liked to try the duck, but it was not on the menu at this time.

Just superb. Shows the touch of its legendary creator, Chef Daniel Humm of Eleven Madison Park in NYC. The ceviche, the fried chicken, the jasmine goat cheese, and the honey milk ice cream are standouts among an utterly brilliant menu. The room is staggeringly gorgeous. Loved it.

The only negative was the initial seating by a staff member who wasn't that pleasant. She tried seating us in the back in an area not well populated. Then she chose another seating area also not that desirable and we got an old school eye roll when we asked to be moved to a more desirable table where we were told a table was being held for a larger party. Shortly thereafter that table was taken apart and those sitting next to us, party of 2, were moved there. I wish I had gotten her name but didn't!

First time to the restaurant at the Nomad. Room is truly beautiful. Wonderful mix of old building and new design elements. An exciting place to be (see and be seen). Service was attentive. Food was interesting and pretty good. Menu is very small, too small in my opinion even though I prefer smaller menus. What we had was good but there may not be options for everyone. Will go back if in the neighborhood.

The service was poor, we arrived on time for our reservation. waited 15 minutes for hostess. I finally gave up on waiting and went it look for her. When I found her, I asked to be seated and she gave an attitude. Once seated the service did not get better. The waiter came maybe 2 time to see if we needed anything and as well seemed like he did not want to be there. Other than that the drinks were good and the food was so so.

absolutely awful experience. we arrived 10 minutes before our reservation and were seated immediately. once seated we were urged to order soon because they had a limited menu and the kitchen was closing soon. ordered a glass of wine each, fries and the cheese plate. the food and wine came out within 10 minutes which was great! The waiter came by five minutes after our food arrived and asked us if we needed anything else as the kitchen was closing, we asked for more Brad and he said he would go get it. He returned and said that the bread was already put away so you couldn’t give us anything further and the kitchen was already closed. He then brought over the check, and said again that that they were closing soon. They picked up her check within 25 minutes of us arriving, mind you we arrive 10 minutes prior to our reservation. Once the check was completed we weren’t even done with our glasses of wine or our food the manager came by and told us that they were shutting down and we had to leave. the tots time in the restaurant was 40 minutes...absolutely unprofessional and complete disregard for clients comfort and needs. not sure why a restaurant of this caliber would have reservations so late in the evening (10:30/10:45) if they were just going to rush people out as soon as they sat down. I also noticed other tables leaving with their full beers in hand, having to finishing them standing in the lobby, as they were ushered out as soon as ordering. I have frequented the nomad and this last experience will be my last.
