    We reserved, and clearly didn't need reservation. It's about ten minutes walk from the music center and we wanted somethin other than the restaurant we usually go to there. They were very nice and the old school East Coast bar look was nice. The food was not great. Although they cloy at first, the brussels sprouts appetizer was the high point -- goat cheese, roasted sprouts and a very rich balsamic sauce. That was great (although took some getting used to). I ordered the roast chicken which was both a paltry serving and dried out. The chicken was also not good on my dining partner's ceasar salad. They were very kind and the restrooms were lovely. We might go back, but we probably won't.

    everything was delicious. liked being seated on interior area, because although windows open to the street seem inviting, a lot of interesting downtown characters walk by we walked to the Ahmanson from here, which was a nice stroll and saved looking for another parking garage.

    This is my go-to place for pre-opera (Chandler Pavilion) or pre-Ahmanson Theater. Although I wish they had a bigger selection in their menu, their food is well-prepared and adequate in potion. The service is quite friendly. There are specials if you get in before 6 PM. Prices are reasonable, too.

    Came for happy hour before a show, 5:15 reservation. Table was in a perfect location by a window, service was excellent. Had the chips, tacos, cadillac margaritas, buffalo wings, beef sliders and brussels sprouts. And more chips. Happy with all these choices. The place has a good vibe/energy.

    A find for a delicious weekday lunch, early dinner, or festive happy hour. Located near the courthouses and the Music Center. Because they cater primarily to a business clientele, they’re not open on weekends.

    My friend and I made a reservation for Happy Hour before seeing a show at the Music Center. The prices were great and there was a good variety of apps and wine choices (although no Rose for such a hot day). We each got cocktails. My friend got an Aperol Spritz that oddly came with a sprig of Rosemary. I got a Sidecar which I didn’t finish. It was just okay. We switched to wine which also was fine. Appetizers were Brussels Sprouts, which were too sweet and came in big pieces that were difficult to eat. We also had chips with guacamole and queso, the chips were fresh, crisp, and salted perfectly. The guacamole was good, but the queso was very tasty. It was an unusual texture. Not gooey, melty like we were expecting l, but the flavor made up for that. There was a nice spice to it. I don’t like to complain about service because I know how hard it is for restaurants to keep staff these days. I told the waiter we wanted to hang on to the menu in case we wanted to order more. I actually did, but we never really saw him again and I didn’t care enough to seek him out. We probably would have ordered another glass of wine too. Oh well. Overall, I’d be willing to try again if I’m looking for a place near the theater. It’s just a short walk, but there’s a hill, so leave your heels at home!

    Our server kept forgetting about us. Even though we told her we had theater tickets and had to be finished by a certain time, they didn't change anything. We arrived with plenty of time but had to cancel our desserts and depart. Disappointing!

    Small gem. A few blocks away from the courthouse and Music Center, this little bistro is a great alternative for pre-theater dining. Great food, reasonable prices, friendly (but a bit understaffed) service. However, closed on weekends.

    My office is down the street so I went her for convenience. I got the roasted vegetables plate which had about 8 different vegetables. It was excellent with a bit of ranch dressing. A perfect lunch when you are trying to eat healthy.

    We had a pre-theater dinner here, and are pretty surprised this place isn't more popular. The food tasted great, and the portions were ample. The setting is handsome and, unlike some other restaurants in the area, the seating is not at all crowded. My main complaint was the service, as our waiter ignored us for most of the meal. Although he literally had only ONE other table for the part of our meal in question, he carefully turned his back towards us when he went to his other table, scrupulously avoiding any glance in our direction, so that he could pretend he couldn't see me waving to try to get his attention. After he repeatedly did that, I finally had to run after him to ask for a glass of wine with my entree. Despite this, we enjoyed our meal, and will probably go again, hoping maybe our waiter was just having a bad day.
