Our party came during their busy lunch hour. While the venue was unique in its layout and felt like you stepped out of Downtown LA into a European setting and we were seated immediately, but felt slightly rushed by the hostess and waiter. We had...More

Decisions, decisions. The display of wonderful treats along with a menu for things-not-shown make it nearly impossible to choose your dessert. You will just have to come back (like we do every time we come to LA!)

WOW! first you have to get by the wonderful bakery display cases. Everything you can possibly think of is there. Breads, cakes, cookies, candy everything! the Italian food is very good. The Lasagna is outstanding. It has a deep meat sauce taste without overly tomato...More

Bottega Louie manages to bring a small cafe feel into a large restaurant in DTLA. The food is exceptional and the service is wonderful. The famous macaroons are a must try.

This place just looks fancy! I only explored the deserts, but they also have a restaurant. The pricing is about typical for the types of deserts and pastries (bignetts, macarons, cupcakes, panna cotta, and more!) The cakes look like something out of a movie- beautiful!

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
