    It is so elegant inside but the food is reasonably priced and delicious. It's the kind of place you could eat at once or twice a week. -Danielle Keene, Top Chef Just Desserts

  • LA Weekly

    From cocktails to comforting salads, grilled chops, American sides & heaven-sent chocolate soufflé there's no getting through the entire menu. Free corkage for 1st bottle. Breakfast, lunch and dinner

    The kitchen gets the food out fast, which is why the restaurant can feed 800 on a weekend night. Who wouldn't gawk at the sight of so many people eating so much food, trying to shout above the fray? Read more

    They've got delicious pastries and tapas plates. But what you really have to try is their portobello mushroom fries.

    One of the few places downtown that stays alive after the workweek/day’s end.

    Portobello mushroom fries is a must!

    Pleasantly surprised. Recommend Napoli pizza, Portobello fries w/ basic garlic sauce are fantastic. Chocolate souffle is divine, but please allow 20min for preparation. Don't forget the Macarons!

    A great downtown restaurant with high ceilings and a beautiful large dining room—it used to be an old bank and the space is as gorgeous as the food is delicious. - Kate Bosworth

    If you're not sure, try the Lasagna Bolognese, the Meatball Parmesan sliders, the Shrimp Scampi, and of course, the Portobello Fries. Read more

    It's 9 pm it's toooo freaking noisy it feels like ur In a bee house

    Pick up some baked goods or macarons on the way out. Tamara is an amazing pastry chef in residence, don't miss out on tasting some of her brilliance. And the packaging in the marketplace is a treat.

    told it was a must-try in LA, it's massive in every way: the space, the menu, the drinks.

    Portobello fries and Burrata pizza? Need we say more? Okay, we will… Butterscotch custard! Be warned: No rezzies so the wait is always long (but worth it).

    A morning pastry shop/market, lunchtime café, and all-day dining room decked out in marble and French antiques—you’ll swear it’s the Parisian patisserie Ladurée. Try the perfect pizzas and macarons.

    A must stop in DTLA. For a second, it seems like step in gourmet bakery on Madison Avenue.

    I dream about the Louie Salad and mushroom fries.

    The pastry case is where it's at. Paris-quality croissants and super friendly staff.

    Melissa H. · January 20, 2010
  • Robert V.

    Come early - it gets busy and loud. Skip the pizza and spend your caloric intake on the portobello fries, burrata and grape tomatoes, and a bolongnese that tastes like its been simmering all day.

    Robert V. · January 2, 2010
  • emily a.

    those macaroons looks hella good

    This Italian restaurant is as close as Italy as you can get... plus, they have macarons... where else can you get great food and macarons??

    Delicious foods and pastries. Excellent service. The only downside is the super loud music. You can't hear people sitting across from you. Saw John Lithgow here, too.
