Restaurants near Sofitel LA

  • s

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
        AOC
        Chaya Brasserie
        STK

        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.

            1. Jar would be a great choice. www.thejar.com

              1. dominick's and you can stumble across the street

                1. For breakfast and quick lunches, I'd go with Jan's Restaurant. It's a traditional coffee shop but higher quality than say Denny's.
