With downtown LA being rejuvenated, this hidden gem can only go up! Tapas style. There is a tasting menus and wine pairing. As we are not big eaters, we chose to order A La Carte. Each dish was unforgettable, and the recommended Chardonnay was excellent....More

Firstly, I think there has only been one review this low in my 158 review history. This restaurant takes itself way too seriously with pretense and plate presentation without delivering a fine dining experience. We had a set menu and wine pairing (which was generous...More

For foodies traveling the East & West coasts Alma was THE disappointment of the trip. Service was abysmal and the food was average. Go to Maude and forget Alma.

Chef Ari is an artist, a foreman, and...wait for it...a culinary genius. We had 9 courses with wine pairings (including an orange wine that few can pair well). We sat at the counter and watched everything. Go...now!

We have eaten at many great restaurants, and what we like the most about Alma is the combination of creative world-class food with a non-pretentious atmosphere. This time, we held off on the wine pairings so we could enjoy the food, and we were glad...More

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
