Went for breakfast. The ambiance is amazing. Service was a bit slow. We were seated towards an outside corner. So maybe that’s why?

The historic Hotel property houses three restaurants which means that what you order dictates when dishes arrive at your table. The menu is very limited but the quality of the good is stellar. Best of all, the restaurant is walking distance to the Staples Center.

Fantastic setting off the pool. Menu small. The pizzas are good but this place is all about the setting. In a great hotel. At least the lobby.

What a beautiful setting for an open restaurant. The view of the beautiful pool made me want to jump right in. The food was delicious and our server was attentive. We will return for sure.

The food was late, cold and was on the level of Denny’s. The Manager came over a couple of times to check, his attitude was not pleasant at first, and then it got a little better. After many excuses, he finally comped the meal. I was not after a free meal, I thought the restaurant would have been run better. The only good thing was the view, overlooking the pool. The restaurant needs a professional overhaul.

Horrible experience! No more than 5 tables including ours, we had a reservation picked our seats and for over 15 minutes nobody came by to ask us that drinks or orders they could get us. There were at least 7 people working including the hostess and bartenders, i finally got a waitress to comeby, and she asked if i had a question. My question was if we could get any service , she nonchalantly said sure, and didn't come back for 5 minutes.

Food takes way too long at the pool side. Staff is really rude and not receptive to feedback. The food is served one at a time. Don't recommend.

The food is very good and it is a great outdoor ambiance for summer. My only complaint was that the music is too loud to enjoy dinner - it is more like a bar / lounge scene.

The hotel is beautiful. Unfortunately, still very new and service is slow. One of the hostesses was incredibly rude to one of our guests visiting from out of town and staying at the hotel.

The dining area was bright and nicely decorated, with an open wall overlooking the pool area. The service was pleasant and unobtrusive, allowing a casual and leisurely experience without feeling that we were forgotten or ignored. There was moderate noise, but we could still easily carry on a conversation.

We went for lunch and ordered the yellowtail crudo, a suckling pig flatbread, and a potato-leek flatbread. All were good, though a tad bland. I kept wanting to add a touch of something to jazz-up the flavor.

I’ll give them another try.

Food is creative and excellent. Try the yellowtail crudo, lollipop kale, zucchini flatbread. Only negative is wine list needs to be expanded.

They are located inside the Hotel Figueroa. It was one of my favorite spots. I didn't get to explore too much other than walking from Figueroa into the restaurant (passing through lobby). It was a Moroccan themed hotel. Not sure if they kept that vibe. It looked more modern Moroccan if anything. It's definitely cozy by the bar area before the restaurant. In the restaurant, it's small so when this place is up and running, they will probably be packed. Highly recommend a reservation here. They still kept the view from this place to the pool. It's quaint. The food, ehh. I am not a fan of their options It says Vegetables (entrees) when they have protein (confusing a bit). It's best to order a couple or a few plates and share if party of 2. I hope their menu is seasonal.
