First time diner. Will not be the last time. Went on a Thursday evening, with a reservation (must call restaurant; no online services). Seated immediately. Pub-restaurant is mid-sized and comfortable feeling. Good selection of on tap and bottled beers, Prices are moderate. Service was quite attentive, notwithstanding other reviews to the contrary. We were a party of two. Started by... More

We were going to an LA Kings game and got downtown early looking for a place to have a leisurely dinner. We picked the right place to go. The Tavern is right next door to the Original Pantry and "related". We sat at a table right by the open window so we had a great view of the people and... More

Ate here for Brekkie , when the queue was massive for the Pantry next door. This really is very good value, and no queue. Really helpful staff, and great menu choice with lovely food. Well worth a visit

This place is next door to the Pantry and I think they may be connected somehow, since our coffee mugs both had the Pantry's logo on them. The Pantry was packed with a line out the door, so this place was an alternative and it turned out to be very enjoyable. Great service, yummy breakfast. It's an Irish pub, so... More

Menu consists of basic "Pub Grub" choices. Good choices but rather limited. I chose a basic burger/fries during Happy Hour on a Saturday night. Service was good, burger/fries were good/substantial also. Enjoyed a Guinness at Happy Hour price!

Same food as Original Pantry but no line. So if you're super hungry, head next door to Riordan's. Friendly servers, great drinks and fast service. Close to Staples with lots of TVs on whatever channel you want them to tune in.

We arrived for an early dinner. There was a boisterous group at the bar but the dining room was not busy. Nobody greeted us for several minutes - perhaps as much as ten. We were finally offered a booth and chose to take one well towards the back away from the noisy bar. Lagunitas IPA is on tap so I... More

We were originally going to the place next door. We were in line for 15 minutes when a gentleman told us there was no line but just as good food next door. And we are very glad we took the advice. Absolutely yum! Huge portions and amazing service. Best food since we arrived here!!

So much food. We ordered wings and the Maui quesadilla for appetizers. For dinner we ordered a cheeseburger and a kale salad with raisins, pecans, roasted turkey and cheese cubes. Additionally, we ordered two Cadillac martinis. Everything was great and it was so much food we couldn't finish it all. Such. A nice visit and nice waiter as well:)!

We were welcomed the minute we stepped into the place! Irish atmosphere but menu leans more toward American food. Server was friendly and there when we needed him. I had Reuben which was average. Could have had more sauerkrout. My husband had BLTAvocado which he said was above average. Both sandwiches were huge and we could only eat half of... More

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.
