About L.A. Chapter
We partnered with the team behind Brooklyn’s beloved Five Leaves and Palm Springs' roadside diner King's Highway — to create L.A. Chapter, a lively brasserie just off of Ace’s lobby. Rooted in a fresh, thoughtful focus on locally sourced ingredients, L.A. Chapter presents a menu that introduces nuanced flavors to traditional culinary technique. Fresh herbs and colorful accents welcome grace to the plate. Some of our more popular dishes include our dry-aged burger, veggie burger, Ora King salmon, Brussels sprouts, steak, avocado toast, ricotta pancakes and oysters. The menu is complemented by a choice selection of artisanal cocktails, craft beer and wine.

L.A. Chapter Ratings and Reviews

Ate there because attending show at theater next door - so was convenient and menu looked interesting. Brussle Sprouts were very good. The rest was well only Ok. disappointed, as a resident of downtown L.A. I am always hoping to find new gems - but this isnt one of them. I will say nice service however.

The service was horrible. Waiter looked and acted overly exhausted and left mid-shift. The waitress who picked up the table, 20-30mins after our last request, was not hospitable either. You get less than you pay for here.

the staff tried their best. really nice people. but the place was so packed and the meal was real hurried. its small and packed. real busy. not lacking for business. but too much for me. I am sure others would enjoy it, but its not for me. I only tried the burger as that was the only thing that would not take 25 to 30 minutes. the other items could have been good too but they were not recommended to me. Its a decent burger but in and out would blow it away.

Dinner before our show at the Theater. Recommend reservations. Staff friendly and very helpful. We were seated quickly and had our food in no time at all. Waitstaff was attentive. Food was excellent and prices were good (mains under $30).

Casual dinner before attending a concert at The Theater at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles. Menu is diverse and server was knowledgeable on options. Seating was comfortable but basic and presentation of entrees was very appetizing. We sat down at 5:30 pm and it was fairly quiet until about an hour later when the place filled up. This restaurant is located on the first floor of the Ace Hotel.

Absolutely awesome! I loved the vintage feel - the checkered floors - the overall charm of the restaurant - the gold tables - and of course the phenomenal food! The staff is super friendly as well! Everyone there was smiling - so positive!

The service was awesome and the drinks we're amazing. The ambiance would have been great too if it we're not for the fact that the mezzanine level was occupied by a group of completely irritating LOUD, not just a little noise loud but shouting loud, people. I was on an anniversary date with my girlfriend and I literally could not hear her from across the table. The shouting was as if we had gone to a sports bar on Super Bowl Sunday. I asked three times if someone could ask them to just tone it down a bit. I was told they had rented out the whole mezzanine so nothing could be done then the manger had talked to them, they would be leaving at 7:15pm and even that security would talk to them and the noise level never went be low many people talking very loudly.

Food portion was small for the price. Waiter spilled water on my phone and all over my friend and me but there was no comp of any kind. I asked for a large glass for ice and water 3 times before it was brought over and still was not right. A tiny size of martini was 13 bucks which was expensive even to all my guy friends who drink at bars and restaurants. I had to go home and eat pizza because the portion was small.
I ordered mussels and clams and every piece has shrunk so much there was barely any food to eat.
We only went there to catch a show so I know I won't ever return again.

I was a half hour late for my reservation, but they kindly held the table open. I have eaten at LA Chapter before and it's always been very good. However, they were a little off with the food this time. I had the wild mushroom app. and it disappointed. It lacked taste. The flat iron steak was loaded with crunchy gristle. I would never had that again! I just look at it as an off night on their part.
The girl who greeted us was fantastic and our waiter got us in and out quickly as we were headed to see Wilco at the Ace Hotel.

This restaurant is located beneath the Ace Hotel, next door to a theater. We came here to celebrate a friend's birthday. It's a smaller restaurant, more on the intimate side. The service was fantastic, and so was the food. They made some delicious cocktails as well.
I didn't realize this until I saw a bunch of people continuously going up an elevator near our table, but there's a really cool rooftop lounge in the same building called "Upstairs". After dinner, we rode the elevator up to the lounge to find that it had a beautiful view of downtown, a huge bar, a DJ playing fun hip hop, and even a pool should anyone want to take a dip.
Our evening was great! Great dinner followed by an unexpected night at a lounge!!

Great atmosphere and food was good, however service needs improvement. It was not very busy, but immediately felt rushed by our server. The first time finally approaching the table, he went right into asking for our food orders instead of welcoming us and asking if we'd like to start with a drink. After that, we barely saw him again (someone else brought out the food) and had to flag him down twice for another round of drinks or other needs. Meanwhile, we could see him standing around socializing with other staff members the entire evening. It feels like the staff/management doesn't care how customers are treated or about their experience ... They just know people will come because it's the ACE so don't put forth much effort.

The host was a little rude and pretentious. I arrived and let him know I had a reservation , he barely let me squeeze in a word to give my name and that I had a reservation through open table. I asked if I could sit outside and he quickly said there were not any seats in the shade . I had been waiting for my friend out side the restaraunt prior to my reservation and saw a few seats or at least the option to move an umbrella outside . So I let it go and took a table inside. And We were seated in a very rocky unstable table but I was having brunch with my friend so we made the best of it and the excellent service from the waitress more than made up for the rude host.

We ordered the mussels and there were horrible. Half had not opened. There were huge chunks of bread and a pile of cilantro and no broth. Absolutely a pathetic presentation and completely missed the mark on taste. The worst I have ever had.

I love Ace Hotel for meals and after attending an event at night. This was my first time having breakfast there and it was great. I enjoyed the ricotta pancakes with Earth, Wind & Fire playing in the background.
My guest loved this and the rooftop so much, she vowed to return one evening with her husband.

Service was lack-luster, there was an unpleasant loud humming noise that was possibly air conditioning. Only one dish out of three was good, two separate wines were bad enough o send back, overall vibe of the place was flat. Will certainly not return.

I surprised my husband with tickets to see Bela Fleck and Chris Thile at The Theater at Ace for his 45th birthday. I wasn't sure what to do about dinner before the show until I found L.A. Chapter. Our dining experience was everything I'd hoped it would be and more. The food was delectable and perfectly prepared. The staff was incredibly friendly and professional while maintaining that relaxed L.A. vibe. One of the staff members came to check on us during the meal and she was absolutely lovely and genuine. I can't thank you enough for making my husband's birthday an experience that, as he put it, we'll be "remembering and thinking over for a long, long time." And we know we'll be back for more!

Being at the Ace, I assumed this restaurant would be sufficiently "hipster" and it was. But not annoyingly so. Also, hip places make me think that they are going to think too highly of themselves and often times the service reflects this. This was NOT the case here. The service was great. The perfect balance of attentiveness and privacy. Everything we needed we had quickly. The server was extremely nice and the food was perfect: temperature, flavor, presentation. Overall this was a very satisfying experience all around.

Drinks at Upstair Bar and dinner at LA Chapter is a very pleasant experience and one that does not seem to be much written about. But the drinks are great and the food is way better than I expected. It's no Breslin (NY ACE) but mighty tasty nonetheless.
