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

6:00 reservation. Friend checked in at 5:40. I arrived at 6:10 due to traffic. Seated at 6:15. Server took our order and at 7:15 we left to attend an event at the theater next door only having had a glass of wine. I assume the kitchen staff was very short handed that evening. I chose this restaurant for two reasons, location near the theater and because I had had a good experience and meal here before. Very disappointing to have promised a friend dinner and not able to fulfill my promise.

We loved the feel of the place. Nestled in DTLA at the Ace Hotel, a beauty in itself. The ricotta pancakes with honeycomb butter were to die for. The brussel sprouts were tasty with a hint of spicy..and the ricotta, pomegranate, fig cheese.. yum! Definitely will revisit! Also head to the rooftop bar Upstairs for a drink and a view of the city

The place looked nice but the service was too slow, me and my wife had dinner for our anniversary, and food took more than 40 minutes to arrive, we just asked for the check as the food came to avoid being late for the halloween screening of Nosferatu, we still ran late. You cant fix the past. Too bad.

Unfortunately, we were a 1/2 hour late for our reservation. I called and let them know that we were going to be late, and didn't really know exactly what time we'd get there. They couldn't have been nicer. We were seated quickly after we arrived, and then, of course, we were in a hurry to get to the theatre and the service was amazing--even though it was super crowded! I was thinking of ordering the chicken and waitress said it would take 20 minutes extra, so I ordered the salmon. Only problem, I found, was that it was sooo noisy! Good, interesting food, too.

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.
