Restaurants near Sofitel LA

We will have two nights at the Sofitel LA at the end of September and are looking for good restaurants, steak, fish, chicken within walking distance of the hotel. I had thought of making a reservation at the Ivy but see the majority of comments are not good.

Any suggestions?

    1. Lots of good stuff right there: Grace, AOC, Hatfield's, Pastis.

      1. re: sku

        Looks like the OP said "walking distance", which probably means <1 mi. (from La Cienega/Beverly) I agree those four are great options, but Grace/Hatfield's are not really walking distance.

        There are a few popular places in a row along W. 3rd St. right adjacent to Cedars-Sinai, but I haven't been to any ones worth recommending (I'm sure others have though). I'd skip anything in the Beverly Ctr.

        1. re: cant talk...eating

          Grace/Hatfield's are about a mile and a half. I guess it depends on the person.

      2. Pane e Vino
        Chaya Brasserie

        1. I'm surprised no one mentioned Sona or Simon LA (which is in the Sofitel Hotel). For a more casual place, perhaps try Taste. For Italian, Dominick's or Locanda Veneta (fancier of the 2) are both in walking distance.

          Definitely AVOID the Ivy.

          1. Definitely Pane E Vino, make reservations on the Patio. Le Petit Bistro on La Cienega.
