We were a group of five and each enjoyed our dinner selection of salmon, fluke and filet mignon. All were excellently prepared and presented, portions were just right. Wine list was decent. Our waiter was attentive and efficient. The restaurant in itself is small but the modern design makes it an ideal place for a quiet dinner. The outside dining area is also nice with a great view of the LA skyline. Overall, it was a very positive experience!

The restaurant has some of the best food I've ever eaten...he's a master of sauces! Try the 4 course dinner menu...my husband and I shared,although he ordered his own salad as the one on the menus had melon, and it was more than enough food!

Staying at the Hilton for business & I was too lazy to go elsewhere. I had a rib steak & it was perfectly cooked. Staff was friendly. A nice non- stress meal. Another couple had 2 young kids & their server was very good with them.

Hidden in the back of the Checkers Hotel on Grand Ave is their nice restaurant. The food was good. We had the chicken salad, fish and chips, a burger and a sandwich. Each was nicely prepared and very good. This is a great place for a quite (almost unheard of in Downtown LA) dinner or lunch. We also had a piece of their chocolate cake with ice cream YUM!! It was refreshing to go where there was no loud music blaring or loads of chatter. it has nice large windows with a small outdoor enclosed seating area. The is a Bar area too just in front. Perfect again for a nice quite dinner or lunch. Now the hotel itself is also a little gem, if you like smaller more intimate hotels. We didn't stay here but it's a Hilton Property and is situated right in the middle of Downtown LA. It's near the bank district, next door to the Library (which is amazing inside!) and there are many other food choices (Bottega Louie’s is down a few blocks) there is a Starbucks kitty corner from the hotel too for those of us who have that addiction! I will definitely go back.

I wouldn't normally go here but I had a breakfast meeting. The restaurant is in the back of the hotel--which feels formal and stuffy, perfect for a meeting.

The service, coffee and food were all very good.

I had the healthy breakfast wrap with scrambled egg substitute, zucchini, squash, salsa, and baby spinach. It's in their "eat right" menu and only had 290 calories!
