This was a first-time visit for us and the other couple with us. The food was really, really good, the portions were very generous, and we enjoyed the "share" choices - they were great - probably could have skipped the main dish and just had another "share" item! The service was very attentive but not intrusive. We will definitely make this a "before the theater" spot.

All though polite, did not consider that I stated special occasion. Food was nice but the waiter did not recommend anything even when we asked what do you recommend. He just said sure it’s good.

restaurant was completely empty so you’d figure the service would be phenomenal. Unfortunately the service was extremely slow and made me not want to come back. If it were to be busy I could imagine how long it would take to get service. Food was really good though.

Terrible service. Sat us at booth that looks directly into setting sun. We told them we had theater Tix, had to ask repeatedly to bring last course and check. Then bill was wrong and took 15 minutes to settle. Food was mediocre while prices were high. AVOID.

It was my first time here, with a group of 8. we had reservations and were seated promptly, the service was curteous and at the right speed, not too fast, not too slow, just right. the food was very good, everyone seemed to enjoy thier food very much. I got the corn chowder which was delicios...but the consistency was off, and my steak sandwich was a tad under-seasoned. I like my steak over-seasoned though so this might just be a personal prefrence. overall, we had a great experience.

I had a Living Social coupon that I bought because a friend and I were going to an matinee at the Dorothy Chandler. It was a short walk - 15 minutes - to Ziran from the theater. When we got there - around 5:30 on a Sunday night - the hotel looked deserted. There were 2 people at the bar and two other couples in the restaurant. That said, I'm not holding it against them because maybe the hotel caters to business travelers during the week? It's a beautiful hotel lobby and bar and the restaurant was very pretty as well and quiet. We sat on a very comfy couch in the bar/lounge area and had 2 wonderful specialty cocktails before dinner .

At dinner our waiter was helpful and the service was great. The food was beautifully presented and tasty. I think it's a good choice for a lovely dinner before the theater, or if your travels take you downtown for museum going.

Our first experience at Ziran was for the Mother's Day Brunch this year and I was very impressed! The service staff was wonderful, from the beginning and throughout brunch. The food selection was also great, with just a little bit of everything and a fresh waffle station, which was my favorite. I will definitely be returning.

Excellent service; great for a working breakfast/lunch. Plenty of room at the table, and some tables have outlets nearby for laptop. We were not rushed out once we finished our meal. And the food was very good, fresh and easy to find something to satisfy everyone's dietary weirdness! Overall a very good place to go - comfortable, not noisy, good food and helpful, considerate service.

Service was slow considering there weren't many seated tables during a dineLA lunch. Food took a while to come out as well; would not recommend for lunch during work, but overall feel might be better for a dinner. Besides the alarms/drills that were being conducted, the place itself was rather quiet.

For an in-hotel restaurant, actually quite nice and food is fresh and tasty. Menu is nothing fancy, but maybe the dinner menu has more exotic options? Very nice bar directly outside the restaurant, but there might be one in Ziran that I didn't notice. Very open air and nice lighting. If you take the Dash, get off on 4th nor 3rd!!!

Bought a Groupon for a prefixed dinner and the main entree and dessert were beyond horrible. The seabass was so soggy that it was like mash potatoes and the chicken had a bad taste to it. We did not touch it and the staff did not bother to take into consideration our comment that it was not good. We went on a Friday at 8pm and there were only a total of 2 other tables dining. I would never go back.

It turned out to be our best restaurant. I had made reservations elsewhere, but it cancelled due to closure for a holiday, so I was scrambling to find another one. The party of five praised Ziran. It was quiet enough for conversation, food was tasty and well presented, and the ambience was nice. Thanks for a lovely evening.

This was my 2nd time and I had a Groupon, the waiter remembered me from 4 month ago, where I was seated and that I don't drink alcohol only diet Pepsi, this is nuts! I had an amazing service (pays to be nice!!!) the food was great (I'm a foodie) the Popcorn chowder is the best I have ever had!!! the food is great and lucky me the service was great too, I complemented the chef on the chowder and he sent me home with two extra orders free of charge! Wow! I'll be back!

not a good sign that very few people were there. We had a good meal, but they charged us 18% tax and when we asked the manager about it he had no clue. It felt like the restaurant was going to take advantage of those customers who didn't notice.

Brought wrong appetizer. Half an hour until we could get our waiter back and by that time we were so hungry we just ate the appetizer. I ordered sea bass which was so hard and dried and overcooked that it was inedible. I should have listened to the numerous reviews on Yelp that talked about mixed up orders, the dry over- cooked fish, and slow service.

Went in to do the dineLA experience. Filet and Pork chop were both ridiculously over cooked, but I enjoyed the burrata salad and their desserts. Also, only saw my waiter twice during the three corse meal. Once when we ordered a bottle of wine, and then a second time when he brought the check.
