A lush green landscape, tranquil fountains and a remarkable view of the downtown skyline make Cafe Pinot one of LA's most cosmopolitan restaurants. Our executive chef draws inspiration from the garden setting, creating light, elegant dishes that highlight the best of each season. The restaurant features exquisite patio and indoor dining, offering the perfect setting to complement an evening at the Music Center or Staples Center.
A group of co-workers went to this place around 7 on a weekday. We were seated immediately and the ambiance was great. The food however left a lot to be desired.
They were out of two of the items on the menu that we requested.
I have never seen salmon so undercooked (we ordered 2). They served us new salmon dishes that was fully cooked, but had no flavor.
The chef had decided to make a creative unpleasant play with the risotto.
One person remarked the chicken was good.
I won't return and will not recommend anyone eat here.
The staff was pleasant and attentive, and the setting is beautiful and convenient to the Music Center. However, the food was marginal at best, and after soup, salad, and entree, we left still hungry. The entrees were very slow in coming after the appetizers, and the prices are much too high for the what you receive.
Poor service. One waitress was taking care of too many tables. I had to call the waitress several times (the bread didn't come out on time, risotto was not fully cooked, needed more bread ...) but it was really hard to catch the waitress.
Salmon was good but the risotto was really bad. It didn't look like a main course at all. The rice was not fully cooked and I asked them to cook it again, but it was still not cooked.
In 2006, how can a restaurant with aspirations put one (1!) vegetarian entree on the menu and make it a CREAM OF RICE dish? One imagines it would be risotto but no, in fact,it is literally a bowl of cream with some rice kernels floating in it. I had a few spoonfuls - I had to eat some because I was there for business with colleagues - and felt terribly, horribly, ill for hours afterwards. I am still disgusted when I think of it. I have to say that no one seemed to love their entrees: the general response to 'how's yours?' was 'it's ok.' Just OK? OK? For $30/average entree, it should very well be better than ok.
Very disappointed. Service was slow. Fish dish too dry. Meat was over cooked, almost well done. I ordered medium rare. Chef must have been on vaction. Nice ambiance, but became very noisey. A little high priced for what was received. I will try to stay away from this restaurant group in the future. Much like fast food.
I've been to Cafe Pinot twice before concerts at Walt Disney Concert Hall, and will be returning there tonight. Cafe Pinot is in a stylish glass-walled building set in the park next to the historic downtown Los Angeles Library. Both times we ordered the chef's menu, and had a wonderful meal where the chef does creative things with whatever was fresh at the market that day. Service was attentive but not obtrusive, and afterwards we rode the escalators up Bunker Hill and walked through downtown's skyscrapers to Disney Hall.
Upon entering the restaurant one is hit by a rancid odor, as if the place hadn't been cleaned in years- maybe it hasn't. The food was mediocre at best- undercooked chicken, run of the mill fries- pretentious and overpriced- ie BAD. Total waste of money.
I ordered 2 items :
A duck, which was not cooked enough, and tough to eat.
Now the worst, a coffee ice cream. It was made with a non digestible oil (for the fat obsessed, but no warning was given to me), which after an hour leaked in my pants, down to the socks!
I can't tell you my embarassment, and my clothes were ruined!
