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
Very disappointed by non-meat / non-chicken options. As pescatarians we were pretty excited by the menu advertised on OpenTable (knowing full well that it might not be exactly but would expect it to come close). I had a spaghetti type dish and my partner had the Halibut - the only 2 non-meat options on the menu. Spaghetti dish was falvourful but halibut was overpriced for an underwhelming 2" x 2" piece of fish for $30.
Service was great and space was exactly what I was hoping for - just a shame the restaurant offerings let it all down.
Sadly I don't think I'll go back.
We stayed at the Ace & this was the perfect place for both breakfast and dinner as we didn't want to venture far from the hotel because of our work schedules. Service & food were both excellent & it was uber convenient (because we didn't have to take an Uber! Had drinks on the roof & made our way down for a great, reasonably priced, yummy meal. Simple menu with perfect options for our small group. We ordered several dishes/ sides/ apps & all shared. The avocado toast for breakfast was perfect!
Good place to eat before an event at the theater next door, or one of the other nearby venues. The food is good and exactly what you expect from the menu, cocktails are reasonably priced (although the wine is overpriced and fairly uninspired) and the panna cotta was an excellent way to end the meal. Gets pretty noisy as it fills up, largely due to the tile decor and the closely packed tables, and the service can be hit or miss at that point but you're not there for fine dining or the romantic bistro feel...
Went to hotel for a night. saw Amiee Mann at the theater next door. Had dinner prior. Everyone , from the valet ,front desk, upstairs ,restaurant and I mean everyone knew their role in making a very nice weekend happen for my daughter and myself. Thank you !!
Been here 4 times now. The food is below average at best. I've tried different items on the menu and it's all just blah. It's over priced for end product for sure. Only reason we go is it's convenient to the Ace for concerts. But we won't be going back.
It's a cool vibe. The food is just not good. $30 halibut should not be dry
The cocktails were extremely small, especially given the premium price, and they were out of both the dishes my companion and I wished to order - and our reservation was at 6:30PM! When we expressed our disappointment, the waiter blamed the event that was happening in the theater (hadn't they known about it for a while?) and said that it was just a reason to come back. That, along with other service issues are clearly reasons NOT to go back, though I am sad about that. The same dining companion and I had an excellent meal at LA Chapter in 2016 and we were hoping our dinner this time would confirm LA Chapter as a go-to restaurant.
Service was great but both my colleague and I ended up feeling sick within 2 hours. I spoke with the restaurant manager who apologized to me and promised to follow up by that evening. She never did. This creates a feeling that I don't matter to the restaurant. I'm not going back.
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.
