It was disappointing and overpriced. Many places categorized this as a French restaurant but it is not a French restaurant. I had a birthday dinner for my girl friend on Sunday night with high expectation. The restaurant has a nice ambiance but the service was not that great. It wasn't bad but with the high price I pay, I would expect much higher level of service. The server misinformed us about the food item and we didn't get what we wanted. However, the menu is so limited and there was no other choice once we discovered the item was not what the server described. I was told when I made the reservation is that the restaurant has the same owner and same chef as the Next Door. However, I found out after eating there is that this place has an overpriced menu but not the same type of "French" food I could find next door. The food was average. Bottom line, I wouldn't come back or recommend this restaurant because it is overpriced, mis-categorized, and average service.
Great place to dine with a bird's-eye view of downtown L.A. They have a nice weekend brunch, and their dinner menu (which leans French) is good, but not great ... it's really about dining al fresco with that amazing view, especially at night. Sometimes whoever is at the hostess station can be a bit uppity if you request an outdoor table (the only tables really worth going for). Stick to your guns and wait for an outside seat. Or skip dinner and go to their open-air deck one floor up for a cocktail.
Whether you're a fan of steak frites or poule roti, Church & State does traditional French bistro food with tons of flavour. Excellent service and wine list. It's not your most quiet place but the busy environment adds to the charm. Located in downtown only minutes away from the historic skid row neighbourhood, Church & State is a lovely oasis of gourmet chow. It gets busy on the weekends so be sure to make reservations.
I ordered a strawberry and cheese filled crepe, it was absolutely delicious. The guy who made the crepe was very friendly and attentive. He was also very generous with the whip cream (my request). I was actually surprised at the exceptional quality of the service/food since this plaza is known to be very mediocre due to the constant influx of tourists. I will definitely be coming back to this place next time I'm at this plaza.
Believe it or not, this is actually a french restaurant highlighting food from southern france and the basque region of spain. I would probably say the food is 3.5 stars but i will round up since the atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming. looks can be deceiving as it looks to me like something of a dive bar from the outside. C'est faux mon frere!
Great place for brunch, I love to go on the weekends when I have time. The setting couldn't get any better, wonderful view of Downtown that's both exciting and relaxing. Everyone is friendly, no problems whatsoever with the service. Their mimosas are delicious, Perch is definitely one of my go-tos when I have the opportunity to eat out nice.
One of the most romantic spots for dining in the city, though it'll cost you a pretty penny. Tables are situated in a beautiful courtyard garden, and you'll find the place by literally going through the "little door" in the hedges. Lots of celeb sightings...I saw Paris Hilton stalked by paparazzi here once.
Pretty solid French food with a lovely bakery. Particularly like coming here evenings and sitting on the patio when the weather is nice. Really good fresh fish entrés along with their quiche and roast chicken. The bakery counter is hard to resist and the tarts and eclairs are out-of-this-world.
Very happy with this restaurant! They have a big and diverse menu filled with American favorites! I've never had any issues with this place. I walk out happy every time! The Breakfast Panini, Banana Creme & Nutella Crepe, and their Blueberry muffins are my ultimate favorites.
Came here for our anniversary dinner and had an amazing experience. Service was spot-on, ambiance was fantastic and the FOOD was amazing. Loved the mussels, the onion tart and the duck. The drink menu is pretty spectacular and the wine list was pretty interesting too.
