L.A. Chapter Ratings and Reviews
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
