This place is located right on Ocean Ave so the tables located near the windows have great views. The service was good and the food really fresh. They have a special for a few weeks where you got a choice of appetizer and main course for $25. I had the clam chowder and mahi mahi which both were delicious. Valet... More

Our family of four had a wonderful evening. The wine list was extensive as was the entire menu! The service was exceptional. There were so many choices that it was hard to choose what to order. We ordered some of the best seafood we've ever had! Wonderful ambience and just a very nice evening out with our teens. When we... More

A bit on the expensive side, but for a special occasion it is worth it. Clam chowder, great. Service great. Beautiful restaurant inside. Has valet parking, in that parking in Downtown Los Angeles is impossible.

Came with my family of four just before New Years. Wasn't expecting to actually go into the downtown core of LA, but so glad we did. This is what all restaurants should strive to be. Thoroughly professional staff who really know a lot about service and the seafood they serve. Very busy restaurant but they make you feel as if... More

Fresh, fresh, fresh seafood. We had the Mexican shrimp to start. We could have easily had finished a full pound. My clam chowder was a little thin, but flavorful with clams in the shell. Our party had everything from salmon to scallops to fish and chips to mahi mahi. We ate everything. The chef is definitely not afraid of salt.... More

Took our work group out for a nice dinner while in LA for a convention. Made a reservation at 8pm and as other reviewers have said , they were running behind. We ordered a drink at the bar and waited about 25 minutes to be seated. Our waitress was great! Attentive, knowledgeable and had great conversation. We asked about a... More

You get what you pay for, $300 for dinner for 2 with 2 cocktails, dessert, Filet & Spiny lobster and 2 sides, and soups, but wow was it delicious!

I had a great lunch before heading to a business meeting. The clam chowder was creamy and warm on a cold day. The tuna burger lacked flavor. I would have ordered another bowl of chowder if I had enough time!

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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 in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
