Overall a very nice restaurant. The staff was somewhat attentive, but service was slow. We received side dishes before entrees. Which was a bit odd. But staff was nice enough to provide a Birthday dessert and sing.

Sadly because the place is wide open the Lee were gnats flying around us. We were moved but there were still anointing gnats flying around. The food wasn’t that flavorful and they missed on creativity of flavors. Won’t be going back and very disappointed.

What a great find! We enjoyed every aspect of the experience. First, the service from our server Lauren was fabulous. She was outgoing, knowledgeable and interested in us. Second, the ambiance of the room is very attractive and extremely comfortable. Even the music playing was in the background and added to the experience. Third, the food was excellent, tasty, unique and beautifully plated on very unique dinnerware. We have always wanted to find a quality restaurant downtown for pre theater and sporting events and this is exceptional. It made for a great start to a Saturday evening.

I came here with a few coworkers for DineLA. Food was great, everyone enjoyed what they ordered. The interior decor was also very nice. But the service was sub-par, and that is my only complain. It was difficult to get our server’s attention, a different person took our order than our server, and there was a mix-up for our dessert order.

We were a party of 5 that there for DineLA. Three of us had the Waygu burger, which was actually good, however each one was different. Only one had the grilled onions, and we all wanted them as it came with the burger. One of the burgers was ordered med-well, and it came our rarer than my medium-rare. That burger also had a greenish tomato rather than the red ones the rest of us got. So, the overly rare burger was taken back and replaced with a different burger which was only about med to med-rare. But, it had the grilled onions. One in our party got the pasta, which was served without Parmesan cheese, so she asked for some. We got billed $2 for the cheese. We also got billed for the extra burger that replaced the too rare one. At least they resolved the bill without an argument. One additional note--as we were awaiting dessert, a server dropped off a small side of grilled onions with the guy who didn't get any but didn't want his burger replaced.

The food was actually decent all around (especially the avocado toast), but the kitchen was a huge failure here. You can't serve three different styles of burger to the same table that orders the exact same thing. And, to not catch the obvious billing errors leads me to believe this place will not be around more than a year. Many at our table thought about 6 months...

I've already recommended it to a few people since I had lunch there an hour or so ago...FANTASTIC! Service was impeccable, Alex came out and spoke to, was extremely gracious, and treated us to something quite special. The food was superb, the wine & wine selection wonderful, the service was the best I've had at a restaurant in sometime. I will definitely be back...soon!

This restaurant was just lovely. The lunch was amazing! Our compliments to the chef!
The presentation of our food was beautiful and every bite was delicious.
We were thinking our server might have been new to the restaurant as she had difficulty answering any questions we had about the menu.

This was my first time at Le Grand. I took a group of 6 for lunch. We all very much liked the food and the restaurant is very nice. My only constructive criticism for this restaurant is that it took very long for us to get our food and drinks. Our reservation was at 12:30 and by 1:40 nobody had their food. A few people had to leave in a rush back to their office and had to take their dessert to go. Everybody felt rushed at the end because everyone had to get back to work. With the downtown crowd I think getting everything in a timely manner is very important. I would recommend it for dinner if the service will be slow but not for lunch. I hope they fix this issue to avoid the fate of the other 2 restaurants that have been at this space in the past couple of years.

Everything was Fantastic, the hostess was nice, the bartender Courtney was on it with our drinks, the manager Tiboh introduced himself and was extremely nice, the food was excellent. Our server Lauren could brush up on the menu and a bit slow, but we were enjoying the restaurant and ambiance, therefore I give her a pass. Definitely will return but will request different server or sit at the bar.

I welcome the change from TOMGEORGE to Le Grand! The menu is delicious. The pita with the smoked ricotta is an amazing way to start the meal. The have the best pre-fixe menu in downtown LA hands down. I have been there twice and both times got the Branzino because it's so good. I think they will have to add more salad options for lunch. This place will definitely be one of my new go to places for client lunches.

Exciting new venue with a dynamic flair- excellent place to drop in for dinner & drinks before the Ahmanson theatre. Easy parking - only a flat rate of $6 in nearby garage.
Management is terrific- French and Mediterranean menu.

Sensational visually & scrumptious wine menu

Wonderful! They are one of the only places I’ve reserved on Open Table that actually acknowledged a birthday without having to say anything in person. Loved that! Delicious food, really excellent and affordable wine list with true gems well under $100, and gracious service. Cacio e pepe was incredible and the rib eye was best steak I’ve had in a long time. Only my husband’s grill skills compare!

Food was excellent! The Burrata was arguably the best we have tried in LA. Food Presentation was attractive.

Service was very attentive, but not hovering. Tables were not jammed together and noise level was low.

I’m certain that we will be back!

We are always looking for new downtown dining experiences, as we frequently attend concerts and other events at the Music Center and we had read about and heard some good reviews about the new Le Grand, which is fairly close to the Music Center, although does not provide shuttle service, as do many of the other downtown restaurants, and valet parking was somewhat less convenient than at other places. There were very few other diners at the time we were there (6 pm on a Saturday evening), and the staff far outnumbered the diners, so it was quiet. Our first waitress was rather uninformed about the menu and then disappeared to be replaced by a waiter who was quite helpful and friendly and knowledgeable . The food, specializing in Greek seafood, was creative and very tasty and beautifully served in generous portions (the two of us shared the the striped bass, which was more than enough for 2). I think they are still going through their learning phase as a new restaurant, but given the excellent quality of food, hopefully they will succeed and we will return.
