    Their hand tossed pizza is amazing. We sat in the back next to the pizza making which is a really cool area to sit.. Loved there pastas also.

    A great downtown restaurant with high ceilings and a beautiful large dining room—it used to be an old bank and the space is as gorgeous as the food is delicious. - Kate Bosworth

    Beautiful confectioneries, pastries, and staff are all very friendly and speak professionally. It's a piece of heaven in the middle of DTLA.

    Exceptional service, even with large groups. And of course, get a box of macarons! Earl grey is thee best.

    Crab beignets are new to the menu! Soooo scrumptious! Try pairing with the kale sprouts and even truffle mashed potatoes!

    Crème brûlée is a dessert with which one cannot go wrong. Fresh fruits and vanilla custard.

    Portobello fries, pizza, & strawberry shortcake were all awesome. Grabbed a few macaroons on my way out and they were amazing as well. Great find!

    The tip here is you should leave a good tip because the waiters rock. Also it's a swell place to eat and sometimes see ESPN personalities...and get sweets on the way out...and go back to work happy

    Best Earl Grey Macaroons! Pastries are delish but I had better ones somewhere else. Sandwiches were okay. Strawberry over Sable was pretty tasty. Definitely check out their macaroons if you're here.

    Pricey but good food and bread. Definitely a must at least once, but your wallet will take a hit

    I discovered this gem on CicLAVia. I bought a sandwich to go and a little chocolate, vanilla mousse and fruit parfait for dessert. Took it to the park for picnic.

    Go for the waffles for brunch. Try the margarita pizza and desserts. The wait time for a table is usually less than they say.

    The pastries scream out for your Instagram feed. After posting, try an Earl Grey macaroon; they taste like chocolate kissed essence of Fruity Pebbles.

    For $7 or less you can get a well balanced healthy meal without the grease and a gourmet coffee to go. Great healthy food, cheap, and quick too!

    Expensive but nice trendy place in Dtla for lunch or dinner. Macarons and key lime pie are too good.

    Macarons and pastries are pretty good. Portobello fries are yummy. The pizza is just ok...crust is a little thick for a thin crust. Prefer the thin crust pizzas in SF Bay Area.

    Their bakery is beautifully displayed with stunning desserts but the star are the macaroons with full flavored crispy cookies

    Trendy spot with lots of dessert options. Best for sharing pizza or pasta dishes. Big, loud, crowded restaurant.

    Mushroom Fries. Get a corner table by the pizza station. Great view of the dining room, almost like being at home in NYC>

    Great atmosphere, great prices, great cocktails but the food is hit or miss. However, the trenne never lets me down. Order the souffle (pictured) as you're ordering your entrees.

    The valet is now $8. Might be cheaper to park at the lot across the street.

    Pick up some baked goods or macarons on the way out. Tamara is an amazing pastry chef in residence, don't miss out on tasting some of her brilliance. And the packaging in the marketplace is a treat.

    Had the best macarons here. The mango flavor is a bit too strong for me. Eclair is ok, not puffy. The trenne is great if you like crispy spaghetti but they are not flavory.

    Delicious foods and pastries. Excellent service. The only downside is the super loud music. You can't hear people sitting across from you. Saw John Lithgow here, too.

    May be crowded and noisy inside but they have the special dishes for special occasions. Don't forget to pick up some macaron before leaving for home.
