    I loved my last visit at Pete's. We had a big group of ten for New Year's Day lunch and they were so accommodating! They provided excellent service and as always, great food. Will be back again ASAP!

    The flat iron steak is delicious! And those who complain about the bleu cheese fries being soggy don't know that it's supposed to be that way. The mac and cheese is good. Unlike anything I've tasted.

    Order the Hellman Burger and upgrade your fries to the cheddar bacon. If there's no more street parking, circle around again on to Main - there's a $5 lot a few store spots south of the eatery.

    Pete's is probably the biggest, most popular bar and restaurant in the "Historic Core" of downtown LA. It's open until 2am every night. GET THE BLUE CHEESE FRIES. SERIOUSLY. THEY'RE F-ING AWESOME! Read more

    The Lamb Bolognese (pasta dish) was outstanding; heard great things about the Chicken Pot Pie as well. Everyone in our 8 person group enjoyed their food. Great place, will be back!

    This place is filthy. Our water glasses were served with scum around the edges. And further in realized the whole glass were dirty. Complained to manager, who was unhelpful and unsympathetic. Awful

    One of my favorite items here is the chicken pot pie. The crust is lite and flaky and the chicken and vegetables inside are fresh and delicious!

    Go to Pete's Cafe & Bar and order the carpaccio or the tomato soup. Avoid the mac & cheese. No more PBR, just bite the bullet and have a Stella.

    Great brunch menu. Pancakes are golden & perfect, lox Benedict is to die for and don't forget a spicy Bloody Mary to wash it all down.

    The pear salad is fantastic. The Eiswein on the dessert menu is delicious, but strong. Not as sweet and crisp as others I've tried. But it's a healthy portion for $10.

    For appetizers, try the raviolis and crispy oyster spoons for dinner. The Hellman Burger is a favorite as well as the Lamb Bolognese.

    Great place downtown for dinner and drinks. Get the carpaccio to start, salmon or pork chop for entree. Burgers are great as well.

    Pete's has a surprisingly delicious Caprese Salad and an amazing Supreme Grilled Cheese Sandwich, served with tomato bisque.

    The bar menu holds yummy secrets! The sliders are very good and inexpensive. Either lamb or beef, $2.50 each.

    The food is good, the staff is great. The portion size of the seared tuna on the other hand is insulting.

    Hmmm…well, they're open late but the service…I dunnow. Feel like we were seated and then promptly forgotten. FYI.

    Fries are good. Lamb bolognase, Hellman burger. Mixed drinks have always been weak. Go for beer or wine.
    Bubs · April 21, 2012
  • John S.
    Calamari, lamb bolognese, and mac-n-cheese were all really good!

    This place use to be a Fat Burger back in the day. Just look at the red diamond tips outside of the patio fence.

    Fab breakfast spot! Try an omelet and top it off with a mimosa, then come back at night to grab a drink at the bar!

    Butternut squash soup is amazing! And vegan friendly if you ask for no creme fresh on top. :)

    I like the Hellman burger,lamb bolognase. Weaky mixed drinks, stick to wine or beer.
    Bubs · February 20, 2012
    You can order from their dinner menu until 11pm or from their bar menu until 2am.

    Oyster spoons are good! Only thing is that it's in small portions. 5 spoons to be exact.

    The Meyers Lemon Tart tastes like nasty fish... So probably a good idea to pass on it unless you like fishy tarts. Um... yeah...

    Going late at night, service tends to suck. The staff acts like they don't have customers.

    The blue-cheese fries. My gawd. Worth the less-than-stellar service. Why haven't I heard of these before?

    Their happy hour isn't that great. My glass of wine was $10, so was my bf's cocktail.
