Not bad, but watch out for tip skimming. (revised) – The quality of table service and food is satisfactory. The price is well, not as over priced as the Pantry has become corresponding with quality, but a bit 'rich'.
One thing though. I prefer to leave tips in cash (between 15-20%, depending on service), yet when I checked my bank statement, it was 'automatically applied' at 15%. I hope this was a mistake and not a common practice. (I called them back and brought the discrepancy up. the guy that served us offered to check the records and noted that the bill showed the correct price without the 15% increase. I appreciated the follow up. I'll be contacting the bank next. As I stated earlier, the service is satisfying)
All in all, if you got the cash or are trying to impress that chick before a Laker/Kings game, then give the place a shot.
The Guiness was right on.
Posh downtown neighborhood tavern offers stiff drinks and prime steaks with a classic, East Coast feel. – In Short
Next door to his Figueroa fixture the Pantry, former L.A. mayor Richard Riordan's upscale tavern lends more than a little luxury to downtown dining. Forest green leather banquettes and polished wood tables sit elegantly under stamped copper ceilings. A gleaming mahogany bar hosts downtown business crowds and evening event-goers; sports fans cheer over Guinness amid authentic team memorabilia. High-end steakhouse fare includes aged beef; a carvery offers daily specials of roast beef, ham or leg of lamb. Lighter fare features broiled salmon and spinach salad.
