About L.A. Chapter
L.A. Chapter is a lively brasserie just off of Ace’s lobby. Rooted in a fresh, thoughtful focus on locally sourced ingredients, the chef's presents a menu that introduces nuanced flavors to traditional culinary technique. Fresh herbs and colorful accents welcome grace to the plate. Garum salts the brussels sprouts, hibiscus and nasturtium fragrance the duck breast, tahini and kumquats exalt the tuna. Subtle incongruities in flavor are at the heart of what makes L.A. Chapter a thoroughly American restaurant. 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
Wow,what a great find.7 minutes from LA LIVE / Staples but a world away from the hectic crowds and tourists.Sidewalk or inside dining. Lot of cool and interesting people walking around seemed hip right near theaters.We usually go places right at Staples area but been there done that. Our waitress was great and the burger and chicken sandwich both very good.We will definitely go back.
Went post-theater for dinner. We were seated right away for our reservation. Good wine list and interesting menu. Drinks brought out relatively quickly. The only issue was the waiter - a lot of attitude. I can't eat dairy or pork so when there is a word on the menu I don't understand I ask because, in the past, I've inadvertently ordered something I'm allergic to. There was one word I didn't understand and so I asked "what is this" and he very slowly pronounced it. So I replied, "yes, but what is it?" He rolled his eyes (literally), signed and said "sausage". Guess not knowing every possible word for "sausage" means I'm not quite hip enough to hang out here.
Regardless, they were able to make the dish without it. We were very pleased with our food and the wine and other than the attitude, people seemed pleasant. Service was a little slow, which I expected after having read the reviews.
Pre Van Morrison dinner at LA Chapter, great dinner, great night, loved the retro LA feel! A little disappointed that we had a lot of time to kill and the rooftop lounge was never suggested by the hostess. I missed that while researching the venue:( Other than that, great food, great service, can't wait to go back.
The food was good, but nothing blew me away. The clams and mussells could have used a little extra flavor, the salmon was quite good and fresh, and the burger was tasty. The atmosphere feels a bit like a Starbucks more than a restaurant, not quite the cozy romantic place I was hoping for. A good place to go if you're in downtown and don't want to spend a fortune for good decent food.
Very eclectic vibe! The host was extremely friendly and accommodating! The server was knowledgably about the menu and was very friendly. Food was terrific. Had the falafel sandwich , my friend had the crispy chicken sandwich . We had sashito peppers to start. The sashito peepers were outstanding. My sandwich was terrific, and my friend loved his too!
This is why I love Open Table! Having participated in the DTLA Women's March, I whipped open the app in an attempt to find someplace nearby for sustenance. I'd never heard of this restaurant but it was only three blocks away AND they immediately confirmed my res for a party of EIGHT (mostly unheard of when booking via OT) 20 minutes from the time of booking. Arrived on time and there was a very long line of people waiting for tables. We breezed in, were seated right away, and received excellent service from Maria. Food was good, as were the drinks. I would highly recommend LA Chapter!! 👍🏼👍🏼
Loved this restaurant. Got there early and went to rooftops bar of the Ace Hotel (restaurant is attached to hotel). Great sunset location, great atmosphere. Dinner was early, so restaurant was not too busy. Decor was nothing like website. Website is bright and diner looking. At night, it takes on a whole different feel.Its warm and mellow and fresh all in one. Food was very good. Highly recommend the Linguini al Cacciuco. Great experience.
My friends and I went to L.A. Chapter for dinner on New Year's Eve and the food was amazing. The three of us shared some different items, so we got to have a delicious taste of several different things and will definitely return for more. The service was delightful and our waiter, Ben, was so caring and informative about ingredients and making sure we had a wonderful experience - which we did.
Service was decent and decor was nice. Only problem is food quality. Toast and burger buns were burnt on two of our orders. Fries has way too much salt. The service staff listened to us and got us another batch of fries with light touch on salt. Unfortunately, one person in our party got a bad upset stomach after having the salad and veggie burger. Not clear if it was the salad dressing, salad, or the burger.
One would think that after being open for a couple of years that the kinks would be worked out. In the 30+ years that I have been in Los Angeles I have never have a dining experience as poor as we experienced this past Sunday Dec 11th, 2016. We arrived at 6:30 pm (a party of 6) with what should have been sufficient time to get over to the Ace Hotel theater by 8pm. Here is the list of some of the issues we experienced; 1) They were out of the linguine and ravioli, 2) We were told about 1/2 an hour after our orders were placed that they were now out of another pasta dish that one of us had ordered, 3) when the food arrived every single order was wrong and we ended up waiting for over an hour to be served, (You would think that by pure dumb luck that at least one order would have been right) 4) several of us placed orders for burgers and they were over cooked and flavorless. 5) no apologies were given and nothing was offered either as a discount, etc. 6) The waitress never came by to ask us if we wanted refills of our drinks. I had to go to the bar myself to get a carafe of water for the table.
It was not a surprise that a show was happening that night at the Ace Hotel, so if you can't handle a crowd you might as well close the doors. In a word, 'ATROCIOUS'.
Enjoyed my brunch at this restaurant. Had the ricotta pancakes which were light and fluffy. Moist on the inside. Served with fresh fruit and homemade honeycomb butter. They also have a short stack witch I might have next time. Portions were generous. My husband had the seasonal fresh fruit salad which he enjoyed. It is located in the Ace Hotel and it has long hours. Can park in the lot next door for $11.00. I know the sign says, $5.00 parking. But the $5.00 parking is only for 10 minutes. Beautiful restored movie palace next door with many concerts. They also have a very hip roof top bar which was busy in the middle of the day on a Sunday. Perfect for attending events at the Music Center. Very nice, helpful server.
This restaurant is in a great location at the bottom of the Ace Hotel. If you intend on going to the roof and having a cocktail, this is a good place to stop and have a meal before or after. The food is good, not great. The service is good, not great. The decor and overall vibe is fun. Good local place to grab a bite before you see a show at the Ace Theatre as well.
