Amazing! – The food was so amazing my dad and I ate here three nights in a row. Nobody seems to know about this place, so go check it out and you won't regret it. Everything we tried was amazing.
Poor service – Checkers downtown has a small but lovely outdoor patio, unfortunately this is all it has going for it. Our lunch took an hour and twenty minutes, the service painfully slow and unattentive. This may have been worth it had the food been worth waiting for... but that was not the case!
Surprisingly Good – We were amazed at the food quality and service. The Chef has a lot of talent and Checkers is definitely worth a visit.
A Great Dinner! – Checkers is a great place for martinis in a cozy, dark bar. The bartenders, all ladies, are really friendly and fun. Dinner in this restaurant is among the best dining experiences in LA. All appetizers and entrees were memorable, especially the veal osso bucco and the halibut wrapped in bacon. The Tahini Ahi is among the best appetizers I have had. The new small plate seafood sampler is a great new item.
We dine there monthly before theater and take the sedan over to the Music Center.
Great service – this place has really good food. I have had dinner there a few times, and everytime I loved it. Dessert was really yummy. The bar after dinner was cozy enough to get lovey dovey. On another occassion I went, they had the lakers game on and it was a great atmoshphere. Highly reccommend Checkers.
Very Nice Hotel – I have been staying at the Hilton Checkers every week for the past two months. Overall, it has been a very good hotel experience.
On the first week at this hotel, housekeeping 'lost' 4 of my dress shirts when I asked them to be laundered. Fortunately, the director of housekeeping agreed to refund an amount that more than covered the cost of the shirts. Had he not fixed this problem, Hilton would have lost months of my business.
The hotel is very clean, with courteous staff, the workout room is small, but has several free-weights, and the outdoor patio/pool/hot tub is neat as it overlooks downtown. The only two bad things about the hotel are that a few rooms are small, but even these rooms are not bad, and the hotel is down a huge hill from several office buildings and it is quite a walk in the mornings.
