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.

    Susanne Goins food never disappoints. First time at Caldo Verde but not the last for sure. And Sunday supper is a great value if you like to eat a 3 course dinner.

    Had a wonderful weekend lunch. Excellent waiter. Very flavorful, fresh, creative food. One complaint: asked for runny poached eggs and they came almost hard boiled. I would still go back.

    Had a friend coming to town and decided to treat her to lunch. We could not have picked a better place. Absolutely delicious food in a truly beautiful setting. We sat right near the window, with perfect sunlight, and the chairs we so comfy. The dinnerware and decor are thoughtful and helped make the meal even more special. The menu is unique - but not inaccessible, and the presentations were beautiful. The wine selection offered a perfect pairing for our lunch - a light and crisp but unique rose. We did it all - appetizers, salads, mains, and we couldn’t resist dessert. Do not skip dessert…. tho I do admit I was a little full by the time it arrived. First visit to this spot, but will definitely not be my last. Truly memorable experience - and who says that about lunch?!?!

    Well this was a really nice surprise! Yes, it’s a hotel restaurant but the service (thanks to our server Emily and our stealthy but kind water/bus server!) and level of food was excellent. WAY above some of the more popular restaurants we tried in dtla. Really great interpretations of Portuguese dishes. The prawns are garlicky but heaven. And the Caldo verde was perfect for a cold night, if you love seafood. Highly recommend!

    Food was amazing! Mushroom polenta was creamy and hearty Simple salad was beyond simple, super fresh and rich in flavors Bread was warm and the Chicken was the perfect degree of spicy and tasteful The Mencia wine was incredible, a great recommendation Staff was friendly and accommodating, we were celebrating a birthday and they went above and beyond to make it an unforgettable evening!

    Fabulous meal. Three of us shared everything, beef cheeks, chorizo stuffed squid, leeks and burrata, fried sun chokes, chopped Portuguese salad, marinated olives, red pepper campechana, picaquicos, and for dessert the maple roasted pear with butter cake and pistachio ice cream, and the boca negra! Just really excellent. The noise level is significant. Two of us had The Italian Job cocktails, so very good! Highly recommend. Meal was about $95 pp. Parking right next door a few steps away $15 self park. Be prepared it’s located at Broadway and 11th.

    Exceptional dinner, as a solo traveler I chose to sit at the bar. The tender was aware, courteous and not overbearing. I never felt rushed and he helped me make key choices. He accommodated exceptions with ease to both food and cocktails. Loved The Italian Job, but decided to sub Gin for the Tequila and Tonic for my next order and it was fabulous. I had the Portuguese chopped salad and added chicken, you can add chicken or other meats to any salads same as the rooftop restaurant. It was perfect, filling and spicy! Would highly recommend. During my stay I also had breakfast here and the options were fantastic, I recommend the avocado toast (because when in California…). Looking forward to my return!

    We had an overall very enjoyable experience here. The food was fresh and well plated. The decor and ambience were very nice. I feel it was a bit pricey for lunch so I would not go as often as I might if the prices were a bit more lunch friendly.

    The food offerings are interesting and unusual, a hybrid of Portuguese and Californian, all very well prepared and reasonably priced. The inside is lovely, civilized, inviting and warm. Service could perhaps be a little less laid-back, but the unrushed feel is quite pleasant for a gentle Sunday brunch.

    Lovely restaurant, nice vibe, good food although portion sizes were a bit small for the price. We were a little disappointed that the Dine LA menu was only offered if everyone in our party agreed to order off the special menu, since we had chosen this restaurant because of Dine LA. Needless to say, we had to go with the regular menu which some where not too happy about. Anyhow, the service was good and we still had a beautiful time and enjoyed the food.

    The food is unique and exceptional. Standouts: endive and pear salad, corn pudding, bluenose / wheat pasta appetizer (phenomenal melding of flavors), roasted carrots and roasted pear dessert (what makes the cream so thick and flavorful)? The bread is also outstanding - the salted butter was so cold/hard it was difficult to spread on the bread. Our waitperson, Kim and all other staff had an amazing, gracious attitude. She will be 5 star when she familiarizes herself more with the intricacies of the dishes and the wines. Popped up to Cara Cara - rooftop bar/restaurant - eye popping views of downtown LA on a stunning October evening.

    I’ve eaten here probably 6-7 times now. It is outstanding on every level. I’m so grateful to have such a fine restaurant within walking distance. The room is gorgeous, the service attentive and friendly, the food is without parallel in LA. IF you understand food, you will not be disappointed. The Campechana is heaven. Tapas-style dishes are all wonderful. I haven’t had the signature “Caldo Verde” yet - it’s not soup season, for me - but I’ve no doubt it will be delicious. Oh yeah, the bar is super hip and the bartenders always awesome and friendly. You could do a lot worse than Caldo Verde.

    Went for power lunch. Good value! incredible peach salad starter really one of the best salads I've ever had. chicken main was solid. Their service could have been a bit better. My friend asked for a second drink that never came until we asked a different server at the time of getting the check.

    The music was just too loud, so rating it Energetic is not quite truthful. I don’t like having a meal where I can’t enjoy a simple conversation bc of loud music. The service was great. I like small plates, I wanted more variety though.

    I really hate to say this but something is off at Caldo Verde. We ate there shortly after it opened and found it to be very good, which isn't surprising, given Goin and Styne. My wife and I are avid Lucques fans and were crushed when it closed. We returned yesterday and everything about the restaurant was off. The service was some of the worst I have ever experienced in a restaurant at this price point. I could tell that nearly everyone working the floor was poorly trained and inexperienced. We ordered a bottle of wine from the list and they brought us the wrong bottle...twice. I had to show them a picture of the label on my phone for them to figure it out. Watching my server fight with the bottle of wine was painful. It was just clear that she had never been shown how to use a wine opener. 10 minutes of training and a few hours of practice would have solved that problem, but alas. She also didn't pour me a taste of the wine or show me the bottle, which is part of the ritual, just poured my wife and I a massive glass each. I saw another server dump two entire drinks on a patron, because she wasn't carrying the drinks tray correctly. Again - training. It was so starkly different from the service at Lucques and AOC, where each server is a master technician. Saddest of all, the food wasn't up to what I was expecting given Goin's phenomenal reputation. The chopped salad wasn't particularly interesting, far too much romaine, not enough beans or potatoes or chourico. The Piri Piri Chicken was substantially overcooked, the breast meat coming part in shreds. The soft shell crab on brioche was exceptional, though. Melon and nectarine salad was delicious, too. Maybe give the place a few months before they iron out their issues and train their staff. When paying $48 for a chicken entree, there's an expected standard one has and it breaks my heart to say that this restaurant falls far short.

    The revival of “Sunday Suppers” (formerly of now defunct Lucques) is a godsend! I love it when a restaurant/chef limits my choices to focus on what is good/fresh right now. The vegetarian option of ricotta dumplings was luscious and the chanterelles that accompanied it were some of the best I’ve ever had. Those in our party who chose the short rib entree loved their choice as well!

    everything is just mediocre, beautiful old hotel, outdoor seating on the sidewalk, so better than on the street. nothing was outstanding, nothing was terrible. too many great restaurants in LA, will not go back.
