The grand tradition of downtown dining finds a modern, casual elegance at Caldo Verde. Here, the James Beard Award-winning team of chefs Suzanne Goin and Restaurateur Caroline Styne blend local flavors and boutique wines with the old California influences. The stately setting offers a richly-designed entrance, lobby bar, main room, and private dining. Outdoor seating opens onto the bustle of Broadway, while historic windows bathe the architectural space in natural light. L.A.-based artistry runs throughout, from Morgan Peck ceramics and lighting, to a monolithic Judson Studios stained glasswork.

    I've been here a few times, and it has never disappointed. Steve was a great server and helped us pick cocktails and dessert. Recommendations: prawns, winter salad, carrots, ceviche, and ricotta dumplings. I'd skip the winter greens. Note that a jazz duo plays there on Thursday nights. They are great, but it makes conversation a challenge!

    Sunday Brunch was absolutely delicious. My omelet was light, fluffy, flavorful and like everything else, served in a perfect proportion. Sides of bacon were literally perfect. Vibe and service was friendly, crowd was kind and cool. Really a perfect DTLA brunch spot.

    Came for the Valentine’s Day experience with my boyfriend, and we were highly disappointed on the experience. First, the hostess took over 30 minutes to see us when there were multiple tables available. We had to come up and ask continuously when our table was ready and another hostess even mentioned that the table had been ready Already and she’s so sorry that nobody came to come get us. Our server, however, was professional and attentive to our table. The food was absolutely disappointing. Starting from the anchovies thrown on a plate for an appetizer. We left hungry with a $600 bill after only drinking two drinks per person. Definitely will be changing up where I choose to eat for an experience next time on a special date. Also, the chefs never came to our table. They went to everyone else’s table to say hi, and completely avoided us.

    The food was deliciously prepared and the service was even better. The dessert was too modern for me - would be happier with a slice of cake or a bowl of ice cream.

    Booked a reservation that specifically said we would have the standard menu and when we showed up it was only a prefix menu at outrageous prices. Nothing was done by management to amend the situation outside of telling us they would be happy to cancel the reservation. We decided to stay since it was v-day and there was no possible way to walk in somewhere else. To top it off - the food was horrible and mass-produced. The appetizer tasted like it was sitting out under a heat lamp after being prepared, it was stall and lukewarm. The vegetarian option was a pile of mushrooms. The 'red wine braised boar' was dry and flavorless - it could have passed a corned beef, I wouldn't have known the difference. $350 for two people to eat garbage food and leave hungry. No remorse for the misleading info about having a standard menu and the bait and switch. I'm sure they made a ton of money selling their cheap ingredients for an ultra-premium tho - kudos!

    Everything was incredibly expensive for the quality you receive. We had high expectations of the decor and ambiance - which we found to be very average. If you are considering this place from a convenience perspective I would stick to the rooftop Cara Cara and not waste your time or money with the street level Caldo Verde. It feels like a street level diner disguised as a the hipster flavor of the month. The food was hit and miss. We had a 5 course prefix with some plates drenched in seasoning and making a full and aggressive attack on your palate and other dishes were quite tasty. I would not suggest or pick this spot in the future.

    This is the second event that Caldo Verde has done in conjunction with The Now Serving bookstore that I have attended. The special menu, from the cookbook Italy by Ingredient, was fabulous. The service was excellent. That the chefs visit the diners is a nice touch.

    Very disappointed in the food, which was fairly expensive. Had to send short rib (menu said "ribs:, but there was only one) back because it was over-cooked and dry. Also, the cocktail was mostly ice, not sure if there was more than 2 ounces of liquid. Won't go back.

    We dined here for a dinner collaboration between Caldo Verde and Nancy Silverton. It was my first time at the Proper Hotel and it exceeded my expectations. The ambience was fabulous inside the restaurant with a very lively crowd. Cocktails were excellent. We loved the signature chopped salad and our entrees were mussels and clams and the beef brisket bowl which were very tasty as well. Our appetizers and desserts were phenomenal, but those were recipes from Nancy. Overall a wonderful dining experience. The only reason I rate the food a 4 is because there was some kind of cream like a creme fraiche on the mussels and clams that we did not care for.

    I have always enjoyed Suzanne’s restaurants and there was a special event with Nancy Silverton so they are 2 of my favorite chef’s and restaurant owners. The food selection was delicious and the dessert bar had so many varieties we had to sample them all! The service was professional and attentive. We drove 1 hour and look forward to coming back!

    Our short ribs were tough and were returned for a replacement which never came. And the minimum recommended service charge was 18% of the food, wellness gratuity and tax. A tip should be based on the food amount. The waiter was slow and arrogant. Food and drink prices are high, not good value. Food quality is inconsistent. Sometimes good, other times terrible. Had been 3 times previously and won't return.

    very helpful and attentive service, but never pushy or overbearing. menu is not huge but very interesting and mostly reasonably priced. The food is beautifully prepared and delicious; e.g., ricotta dumplings, orecchiette with clams, prawns in sumptuous sauce. dessert (chocolate sticky toffee pudding) was the only disappointment. No benefit by adding chocolate to a classic.

    Was super excited for the NYE dinner.. having dined here previously.. had high expectations. The food .. was good. Just not spectacular. The best course was the hamachi. The worst (two) was the steak (raw and cold.. not even warm enough to melt the butter that I got a big mouthful of). The garnish. Was gloppy .. the desert was like a boxed Bundt cake. Nothing special. The service .. was cold. I don’t think I was ever asked how the food was after it arrived. And it was painfully slow. It took exactly 2 hours. That’s about 25 mins inbetween courses. Am a lot less likely to return

    Inspired selection of Iberian wines, doubtless with some specific meal pairings in mind, so feel free to ask for suggestions if that's your style. Possibly the best bread of any restaurant in L.A. post COVID, and the commitment to a celebration of Old World culinary excellence carries on from there. Servers are attentive and engaged. Markedly better fare than its rooftop sister Cara Cara, though that offers a glorious view.

    Our kind and patient server, Anjelica, helped guide us with our first visit for dinner. We ordered the braised short ribs (with Beluga lentils, creme Fraiche), spiced carrots (which came with toasted lavash) and Japanese sweet potatoes. Everything was so delicious with delightful seasoning, and the perfect amount of food for the two of us. A decadent bread pudding for dessert was more of a warm brownie with nuts and chocolate sauce. The ambience was warm and like a renovated cool old hotel with a Moroccan vibe.

    I recommend Caldo Verde to friends, and although I was disappointed that Gilbert Pilgram was not able to be at this event, I was happy that David Tanis and Alice Waters would be there. It would have been even better if they had come out to say something for this special evening.

    A big fan of Suzanne Goin (having spent a great deal of time dining at Lucques and having worked at Tavern in Brentwood; best experience) and Alice Waters (having attended UCBerkeley and had the pleasure to dine at Chez P occasionally), AND admiring Judy Rodgers and many wonderful meals at Zuni Café over the years.... a win win to dine at Caldo Verde last night. The menu was limited, but everything was delicious. And service was spot on. Thank you!
