Terrible experience! 30 minutes in to our dinner reservation we were asked by the waiter if we could eat quickly as he was closing the area we were seated in.

Wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone, I was extremely disappointed.

Had dinner later than we are used to after a long drive from Monterey and checkingin to the Hotel Figueroa. We were promptly seated and we were served almost immediately after ordering and paying on the app. The view is beautiful at night as it is facing the swimming pool. I would love to return under more relaxed circumstances.

We arrived and were seating promptly. The staff was great the drinks were strong and the limited menu was tasty. Overall had a great experience. I live in the DTLA South Park community so we walked but I’m sure parking can be tough so take that into consideration if you do make it out.

The restaurant was nice. The seating near the pool made it a nice setting. The food is overpriced. I paid a lot of money for chips and guacamole. The guacamole was just smashed avocado which wasn’t even finished being smashed. There were huge chunks so the chips kept breaking and no seasoning. The contactless service was a really nice feature though. One, because of covid and two, just because it was really nice not to be bothered by the waiters while we ate. The bite I had was a squash quesadilla and it was really nice.

Everything about the experience was great- except the paper plates. The food was wonderful , service helpful and view by the pool was lovely. The only reason for an overall 4 is the paper plates... i realize this is Covid related but it does take away from the experience. I would happily go back as the food is delish.

Food is terrible. You pay online as you order even before they bring you anything. All in to go plates and drinks in plastic cups.

The ambiance is stellar. Amazing hotel. Beautiful spaces.
We were sat without being told a waiter wouldn’t be serving us. It took my date and I about 7 minutes before we realized that we had to order our food and pay using our phone and the menus on the table. Once we figured it out, The food came quickly (on paper plates) and was very tasty. We had to remind a waiter that we still hadn’t received the desserts we ordered. I think under normal circumstances I would have enjoyed the service more however it was minimal at best.

Because of covid they only allow order to be made online though your phone. the system doesn't allow any changes which is a bummer in case you are allergic or want to take something away. other then that we ate the DINE LA menu which was great. The fish was a little dry but the pickled veggies were great along with the shrimp ceviche and quesadilla we shared. Ambiance is great, the hotel holds so much character and sitting out on the patio while the sun sets over LA added such a great vibe to the whole place.
I do wish they used glass cups and plates, having the food come out on paper plates and plastic cups, also better for the environment. All in all, would definitely come back to try more food and enjoy the great ambiance.

Hubby and I came here in the late afternoon for drinks on our anniversary. The staff was so nice to us, helped us find the best spot to sit, brought us free champagne, and were overall just super friendly. The drinks were delicious, the ambiance was fun (even with Covid). We were so glad we came and will definitely be back!

Obviously with covid 19 the menu is much much shorter... only a handful of okay selections. Very expensive for what it was but then again you’re going for the ambiance.

This is expensive for Mexican food. Everything is a la carte. Chips and salsa , rice and beans all extra.
Drinks were average price$12.00 a margarita with very little alcohol. Minimum 2 drinks to feel anything. No need for ride sharing. The food was delicious and service was spot on. But after an appetizer, entree and dessert I was still hungry. I weigh less than 105 lbs. servings could be larger.
The space was a little chilly. Fortunately, I was seated next to the fire place. It is after all, on the Veranda and open.
