Located on the first floor of the Biltmore in Los Angeles, Smeraldi's offers a great place to dine if headed out to Pershing Square are in DTLA afterwards, or if gathering anywhere downtown. The food is all authentically Italian with a "Los ANgeleno twist". I highly recommend the BUratta to start and I ordered the Filet Mignon, which was presented on a bed of Fingerling potatoes. The flavor was very good and the meat was extremely tender. I give this establishment my best of recommendations for anything ordered off the menu.

Restaurant was underprepared for as many customers as they had. Pumpkin ravioli was very good, other dishes mediocre, ambiance is zero, noisy, surprised this restaurant is in the Biltmore.

They changed the menu. Not as good as before. Prawn sandwich only had a handful of prawns. Ceasar salad with grilled chicken good. Generous pieces of chicken and dressing tasty. It was only 3/4 full of people yet was very noisy. All hardscape; nothing to absorb the noise.
This is in the Biltmore Hotel. It is always decorated beautifully for Christmas. We come every year at Christmas to enjoy the decor.

Awesome seafood lunch buffet with a live pasta bar! Delicious and a terrific deal - including an opulent dessert bar.

Horrible service. Worked very hard to get waited on. Asked to taste a red wine they had. They brought a full glass of white wine. I told them it is not what I asked for, server insisted I try. I tried and said thank you but I would still prefer to try the red. He comes back and says bartender will not allow me to have anymore tastings. WTH? I didn't have any tastings I asked for to begin with. Food was okay. Not a restaurant I will go to again.
