About Faith & Flower
Faith & Flower is a contemporary Los Angeles restaurant located in the WaterMarke Tower in DTLA’s South Park district. The restaurant’s name pays homage to the two major renaissance periods—the 1920s and modern day—that have fundamentally shaped the Downtown Los Angeles community, with “Flower” referring to the street on which the restaurant lies today, and “Faith” for the street’s alleged name during the early 1920s.

Faith & Flower Ratings and Reviews

I needed a place for a business dinner with someone attending a conference at the JW Marriot / LA Live. It's only a short walk from LA Live. Our server was great--very knowledgeable and appropriately opinionated. The atmosphere was great--lively but not loud. We took our time with really nice cocktails The food was excellent--we shared carpaccio, a kale salad, the oxtail agnolotti and jerk half chicken. Every dish was great. I will definitely go back.

From the moment we pulled up to the valet, this place left much to be desired. Nobody was at the valet stand when we arrived, and we waited for ten minutes in our car for someone to arrive. We even called the restaurant to tell them the valet wasn't there, and the hostess said, "sometimes it's just like that when we open." The distance from the valet to the front door is farther than most restaurants, and my elderly dinner companion and I were accosted by two different homeless people on our way in. When we got inside, the hostess told us our table wasn't ready (even though it was early and nearly empty), and had us wait in the bar. I asked the bartender if he had ginger beer, and he replied that they make their own "bespoke" version. Get over yourselves and look up the meaning of that word, which is thrown around incorrectly and far too frequently in the wannabe hipster bar scene. My companion ordered a Chopin martini and the bartender looked at him blankly. It took five minutes of negotiation plus a second bartender to find a suitable substitute.
When we were finally seated, we were given a cute booth (the decor is nice, I'll give them that). Oysters were good, but other tables got them before we did, even though we ordered first. We ordered the dry-aged ribeye, medium rare, which came out very rare. The kitchen did cook it a little bit more, but we discovered when our server brought it back that it was 90 percent fat. Not marbled, mind you, but full-on solid fat and gristle. So we sent it back this time for good. Unacceptable at that price point. The server did apologize but never was empowered to do anything without telling us she'd have to talk to her manager first. Seafood risotto was meh and came after the steak, which should have come beforehand. The broccolini was too salty. The server also failed to remove the steak from the bill and almost got away with the extra $50 charge, but fortunately I reviewed the check before we left. We won't be back.

Gorgeous environment with somewhat lackluster food. This is my 3rd time at F&F and the first lunch about a year ago or so was spectacular, recent dinner and lunch this week were just okay.
Smoked Trout, Cod and Kale salad were carefully prepared but all three dishes needed a bit more flavor. Fish dishes could use a more texture and maybe some acidity to complement the oiliness of the fish. The dishes are lovely to look at but the flavors could use some enhancement.
Love the house-made ice cream pops. Perfect little treats that offer a taste of rich, creamy dessert without blowing my diet. Espresso was very good.

This was our first time at Faith and Flowers. The food, drinks, and ambiance were highly enjoyable. The waiter was very helpful introducing us to the menu and the food. We loved every course including the dessert.

Very disappointed in the food and slow, though polite service. The tomato salad was way too salty and the torn bread was so tough you could barely chew it. The papadella pasta was served with hardly any pasta and loaded with too much sause and the vegetables were almost an afterthought. Way overpriced for very little food.

First of all, the hostess was great. She greeted us with a big smile and took us to our table, but the table was squeezed in-between 1 large party, and another 2 top, that wanted to share the same side of the table. This was not going to work at all, so she took us back, and figured it out. We ended up sitting in a lovely window banquet table.
The food was okay....the drinks were good, the service was good as well. I really wasn't that blown away that I'd come back. The bar area looked more inviting. Not sure what was on the TV, but that always sucks for a PM dinner to have the news on, or sports.
Right now, I see that F & F has charged us 2x for the dinner. Perhaps one of the charges will come off in a day or two. We'll see.

Faith and Flower has delicious cocktails, a tasty menu, and attentive service. My partner and I ordered a salad, a pizza, the crispy potatoes, the 30 day aged rib-eye, and the chocolate hazelnut dessert. We enjoyed each. The tomato salad was light and fresh. The pizza was flavorful(but no wow factor). The potatoes and steak were a delicious combination. The dessert was a light and tasty end. I would also recommend the rum milk punch. Faith and Flower are known for this drink and for good reason: it's delicious.
Definitely will be back.

Faith & Flower is one reason why Downtown Los Angeles is surging as a go to location. The bar was extensive in terms of spirit choice-- I recommend the Winston. The menu featured a variety of starters-- we ordered the ceviche, which was spicy delicious. The pork porterhouse was enough for two-- I consumed all of it. My wife ordered the porterhouse aged steak-- she consumed it all. Bravo Faith & Flower for a wonderful evening!

I thought the pizza was very good, but expensive $19. Several unusual dishes that were just okay, not something I would order again. These dishes included deviled jidori eggs and oxtail agnolotti. Tempura green beans were good.

Dining experience started out well. However we were seated in one of the rear areas of the restaurant, but not a private room. Midway through dinner, a large group (about 20 people) came into the area for apparently a reception. They did not sit at tables but stood up around the area conversing, drinking and eating passed appetizers. Our server was also serving the group so service to our table came to a standstill except when manager came to our table to offer the dessert menu, we hadn't even received our entrees. We had to shove our way out of the crowd to leave our table.
If you do go to this restaurant, do not sit in the rear area of the dining room.
Hence, food was really good, but everything else was very disappointing.

nice ambiance, modern, well lit, tables well spaced, low noise level; food more than acceptable, nothing exceptional but good food at decent prices; on-sight valet parking; good for lunch, I suspect good for dinner but was only there for lunch

The food here is simply terrific. The combinations are imaginative and totally original. You will not find a menu like this anywhere else in the city. Pricey? Yes, a bit. But well worth it for a unique dining experience. Music is a little loud. Wait staff is a little harried. But the staff is also extremely good natured and helpful. Don't miss it.

Eh. I've been here plenty of times for lunch and it's a very different experience at dinner. For starters, I walked into an empty restaurant and somehow the hostess managed to sit me at the most uncomfortable long table. That long beige tufted bench is not comfortable and since they had several nice booths available, like, maybe 5 nicer seating options, it's unclear why I was sat in such a bad option.
Also, they sat 3 other tables very close to us, so the empty restaurant actually sounded packed. The hostess also recommended that we order 5-6 plates "sharables" and that was very confusing as the prices on all of these plates are $$$. We ended up ordering edamame and deviled eggs and drinking 1 glass of wine that alone was $15.

Food wise, I wasn't impressed. I didn't find one particular dish to be great and everything tasted very one note. The drink was worth coming for. To me, this was just one of those place to hang out after you've eaten. Not to mention I think the items are overpriced for the quality of the food.

Delicious food, great atmosphere.
Went there on a Friday for happy hour then dinner but it turned out that there is no happy hour on Fridays. Restaurant's website wasn't clear about that. I think website needs to be more consumer friendly

Staff was overwhelmed for Sunday brunch. Took 45 minutes to get order and they forgot one person's food. Server then "rushed" order. We cancelled reorder after another 30 minutes. Food is very good but service was terrible.

We had to take an early reservation as that was all that was available (our fault for booking last minute) and we requested something quiet. We were seated under a speaker and when we left, about 35% of the tables were empty/had not been sat while we were there. Not including outside which we didn't know was an option. It was our first time at F&F and had high hopes from the reviews. The food was very good but the wine selection didn't measure up. The service was very good but because it wasn't so busy, I don't think we had more than 30 seconds without someone coming to the table to do something. But guess it's better to have too much service than not enough. I think F&F might be more suited for big groups than romantic evenings. Or maybe going to the bar. That looked quite nice. At some point, we will give it another shot.
