Building upon the celebrated NoMad in New York, for the first restaurant outside of their hometown, Chef Daniel Humm and Restaurateur Will Guidara have reimagined their vision of dining within the grand hotel in Downtown L.A. An inviting space for dining throughout the day and evening, The NoMad’s sunlit, casually-elegant restaurant and bar are on the ground floor of the hotel. It sits beneath the building’s original, 1920s blue and gold Italianate ceiling which has been meticulously restored to its full grandeur. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all served in the space, with the Giannini Bar connected for a pre- or post-meal drink.

Delightful, delovely, delicious! It doesn’t matter why we ended up at NoMad at the right time on the wrong day. We were greeted with smiles, offered a fantastic table, and served with grace and charm. It’s not a bargain meal, but nothing of real value comes cheap.

Go. Enjoy. Go again!

Great anniversary dinner! I love the ambiance and vibe of this place: 1920s hip vintage chic; classy with a book smart meets Casablanca vibe. The food is always on point, the cocktails are delicious, and service is top-notch. The little details make it an exceptional experience for me everytime. One of my favorite downtown spots for special occasions.

I think that the Nomad Restaurant is probably now one of my top three favorite restaurants in LA, and definitely the best restaurant I have visited in the past year.

A fantastic ambiance, excellent drinks, great service, and well prepared plates.
1. Ambiance - The decoration of the main dining area is superb. My date and I sat in a room farther in the back, which itself was well laid out with about eight two-tops and two four-top setups.

2. Drinks - Had the Detox Retox and the Los Angeles Sour, both which were well mixed between sweetness and alcohol. My date thought the drinks were excellent, which to me indicates they were well made.

3. Service - The server was attentive and thoughtful. It is a welcome experience because I have had poor service high end restaurants, which I have never understood.

4. Dinner - The Grilled Calamari and Hangar Steak are excellent. First time that I have had calamari that is not fried. Hangar steak was tender and cooked medium rare.

We love this restaurant. The roasted chicken and the Nomad version of Peking Duck are both to die for.
The service (including the hostess staff) is attentive, knowledgeable, welcoming, and professional. The space is gorgeous.
A perfect night and an even better meal! We will keep coming back!!

It was my moms bday. Everything was excellent. The only negative was that we waited a while before our server came to our table. We were in the restaurant for about 45 min before we got served! The food was amazing though! I was dissapointed that they didnt mention or brought my mom a little something for her bday.

We came for the legendary roasted chicken, one of the best and most beautifully presented restaurant dishes I've ever had. But California has banned fois gras so we got Plan B chicken. It was okay. Still a great cocktail bar and beautiful place, but I have to take it off of the "gotta go there" list in LA without that chicken. Thankfully, they still do it in Las Vegas in an even more gorgeous room.

Busy high end restaurant. Food was good, which is what you would expect at this price point. Staff really tried to accomodate...big plus...but we were there early enough even on a Friday night that it should be a given at this level. Would go back, great scene.

We love the breakfast burrito and coffee here. We stayed at the hotel earlier this month for our wedding and first had it the morning after we got married. We loved the food so much that we returned on the last day of our honeymoon. Service could have been quicker, though.

Confusion over reservation, surly hostess accusing me of lying. Nasty waiter upset with questions about menu. Got better eventually through management. Food was good as expected. 1st 2x I was there previously, it was excellent. I dont know what happened. Sad...just sad. I expected better.

Had the burrata, cauliflower, scallops and drink called something like the nod. It was all delicious. At the pool bar I had the drink that comes inside the copper gnome. It was just as the bartender said, "interesting".
The restaurant is gorgeous, great for photos. Service was amazing. I will definitely be back. It's a new favorite spot now for DTLA. The view from the rooftop bar is one of the best downtown. Stunning restaurant and views!

NoMad was great! There was 2 of us so we shared the hanger steak, fried chicken and french fries. Steak was delicious and we couldn't even finish the steak or fries. Their dirty martinis are awesome and the wait staff was really attentive and nice. Overall, I'd definitely go back. It's more of a special occasion or after-work drink place.

Love Nomad. Beautiful innovative ingredients and loads of interesting flavors. It's never boring. However, while I personally appreciate healthy option, I wish they had provided a few fuller options beyond the burger and chicken sandwich. They really don't have much for lunch, esp since removing that prefixed option. I need to go for dinner. I'm sure they have a wider selection.
