City Tavern - Downtown LA Ratings and Reviews
We had our Holiday work party at City Tavern and everyone enjoyed themselves. Food, Drinks and service was great. The Short rib, baby back ribs and Shrimp risotto were the bomb! My co-workers were pleasantly surprised but I loved City Tavern already because of their great craft cocktails. Thank you!
City Tavern is located in the FIGat7th shopping center at the bottom level next to the food court. It has both indoor and outside dining and is very smartly and handsomely furnished. It has a pretty varied menu and everything I've had there has been great. My friend and I shared a Market Salad, and steak and salmon, all of which were flavorful and enticingly presented. It's a great alternative to some of the more pricey places at LA Live to dine before events in South Downtown LA. Very much recommended.
Had the most delicious shrimp risotto at the Downtown Tavern. Absolutely perfect, in a quiet and cool setting. Location is perfect, right at the 7th & Fig mall, lower level. Lots of parking available, they validate, and prices were reasonable. Not a huge selection of items on their menu, but so far, what I've had, has been delicious.
We came specifically because that weekend was advertised as NFL Sunday. When we got there, no games were playing on any of the TVs. I asked to put on a game and the manager(?) put on... soccer. I asked a waitress to assist about twenty minutes later, and was joined in by another very upset gentleman. Finally, NFL, after 30 minutes. But all the tvs were running from the same channel so they didn't appear to be able to play multiple games even though there were like a dozen games on. Games were already half over nearly. My sister ordered tea - plain hot tea - and she had to wait because she was told the restaurant was out of hot water. What? Finally, they got rid of the cool lounge on the second level patio area. It's just a bunch of tables that don't match the DJ vibe. Was really disappointed and won't be going back. This place is so great on weekdays. I don't know why they can't get their brunch hour together.
My friends and I came here for one of their birthdays. We were seated right away (it was 12:30 on a Tuesday) and I had made reservations. We ordered our drinks (which were very yummy but a bit on the strong side). The food came quickly and was filling and delicious. I would go back again.
Cool place for lunch and happy hour. The food is good and so is the service. Very difficult to get a hold of a live person when you need to speak to someone. You are directed to leave a message with your question/request and someone will get back to you. I made a change in the number of guests attending and apparently they had not checked their messages from the day before so they had to scramble around to accommodate us.
Second time I've been here and disappointed. Is it so hard to cook a burger well done? It took them 25 minutes to deliver our food and still it wasn't cooked as requested. No manager follow up and waitress still charged me $4.50 for the Fry's that came with the burger. No customer service and no quality control.
I wanted a place my buddies and I could go to before a concert at the Sports Arena. This fit the bill perfectly. Good food; fun, sports atmosphere; relaxed/casual vibe. We told the waitress we had a show to get to and she was extra attentive in getting the order in and getting us out on time. I recommend it.
When we arrived, all the booths were open so we asked to be seated in one. Hostess said it's for groups of 4 or more. We noticed during our stay that a booth was given to a party of 2 and another party of 3. This is the third time I've been told they are reserved for larger groups but either the booths stay open or are given to small parties like mine. Don't understand their reasoning.
Our waitress was very nice though.
There were some good craft beer choices though the wine options were limited. Service was good though a little too fast - we were there for dinner and had appetizers, mains and a dessert in an hour. The poutine was particularly nice and my son loved the enormous pastrami burger.
It's unfortunately located in a mall under the Target store so the ambiance isn't that great and the place was pretty empty at 7.30pm when we went, but maybe it's the kind of place that gets going later.
Met up with my friends at City Tavern, tucked in a corner on the first floor of FIGat7th. Not much of a beer person but their variety looked great. I recommend the Risotto and the Burgers. Service was great. Drinks were a little on the pricier side. Good for a casual night out to entertain.
Didn't know what to expect given the challenge of finding this gem among other stores and shops of all kinds. At first, we thought it might be too noisy, but it wasn't. Loved the menu and presentation as well as the taste. The salmon was delicious but I loved the Caesar salad. Very plentiful and not ridiculously priced. Our server was not overboard, hovering. Just a great experience and yes, we will return.
Convenient spot before an event at Staples as they had tables open. Beer selection was good but it took a while to get our beers. Grits were good. Burgers were overcooked and a little dry. Nothing special, which was disappointing as I was looking for an awesome juicy burger. I'd go back but with expectations in check.
This place is hard 2 find but well worth the effort. It's casual, warm and uncomplicated. Great variety of good foods and an incredible selection of beers. Sidrah, our server, was very knowledgeable, patient and kind as were the hostesses.
I will return when back in town!
