The sophisticated dining experience perfected was our experience at Patina. The care put into the food preparation in the six course tasting menu delivered intricate, beautiful and delicious fare. Layers upon layers of subtle but oppulent and distinct flavors coming together in waves of symmetry that result in tasty celebrations on the palate. The service was attentive, helpful, friendly and... More

A business acquaintance is staying in downtown LA - and thought we can meet and talk at this high end reputation restaurant. To say that I was let down would be an understatement. On the good side, the place looks great, modern and clean. The maître d' was pleasant and cooperative, the waiter was competent, friendly, professional and well informed.... More

I dined here twice before seeing concerts at Disney Hall and the Ahmanson. (It's a great pre-theater option since you can walk to the theaters after dining). The menu is all pre-fixe. There is a vegetarian course, a 3 course meal, and a 5 course meal. My vegetarian friends' dinner was amazing, and our 3 course dinners were excellent. Everything... More

I've had the pleasure of enjoying Patina a few times and they are a fine dining experience. If a guest isn't a foodie, I'm not sure they'd enjoy it. This is culinary arts, not cheap eats. A place to take your time, enjoy cheese and wine and presentation. So, if you're looking to grab something before a show or after... More

We started my birthday celebration about a week early by splurging on dinner at this excellent restaurant. It was perfectly located right next to the Walt Disney Concert Hall where we were attending an afternoon concert before dinner. We both started with heavenly Hudson Valley foie gras, then I had roast squab. The chocolate dessert was more interesting than wonderful,... More

I hadn't been to LA's venerable Patina in quite a while, but found myself there on a recent weekday evening. The service remains stellar, attentive without being intrusive.

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
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.
