For a desert covered in concrete, Los Angeles has some fertile soil - the further you dig, the deeper it gets. LOAM is an all-day restaurant where people can come together, eat well with out being weird about it, sow some seeds and see what grows. The menu is full of food rooted in quality: leafy greens, nutrient-rich ingredients, well made, like gospel from the ground.

    Everyone enjoyed their food and the presentation. That being said, we had several distracting experiences: No bread is yummy enough for a few slices to be worth $10 The sticky stuff we scraped off our table shouldn't have been there when we sat down. Meals should come to all diners at once, not to only two, then eventually the third, and the fourth guest sits and waits for a while to be last. Valet shouldn't insist on $30 for theater goers, when hotel assured us that restaurant charge was $20. Thanks to hotel manager for solving the problem & comping our car.

    We both had burgers, which were OK but too tall to eat comfortably. Service was slow and they forgot to bring cutlery until asked. Very small glasses of water, obviously to get us to buy drinks.

    The Brussel sprouts were delicious Bread was burnt and pricey for toast and butter My chicken was good but the veggies were just ok My friend had a burger. The burger was good but the bun was bland and spongey. And the fingerling potatoes were bland. The drinks were beautifully presented and the ambiance was pretty. Overpriced food but nice enough Better to go for drinks before a show at the ace hotel

    Perfect location when downtown to see a show. The food is delicious and inventive. The Brussels were out of this world and the cocktails were outstanding. Staff were wonderful even with a busy/full dining area. I will definitely have LOAM on my short list when in the area.

    The wine was very mediocre. The black cod a watery mess floating in some cous cous. My friends hamburger was almost raw between 2 pieces of unappetizing bun the only saving grace were the potatoes!

    While the wine list is quite limited, the quality of the food is nothing short of outstanding. We had the flank steak, black cod, and roasted cauliflower with chickpea flour and were delighted with the taste and quality of each dish....simply excellent. I would definitely eat here again on my next trip to Los Angeles

    There were 5 in our party and saw Melody Gardot concert last night. We had a reservation at Loam restaurant. As we started ordering our dinner, we were warned right away that the chicken dish will take 30 mins. to cook. Since our reservation is was 6:30 and the show will start at 8:00 with an artist opening for Melody, we had plenty of time. After 20 mins. of waiting, the chicken arrived. We were surprised. Then after 5 mins. the rest of the dishes arrived, except the burger. Make a long story short, around 7:45 without the burger, I went to see our waiter and told him my friend wants to cancel the burger order. The waiter was very apologetic. The burger finally came out around 7:50. My friend had to scarf down the burger. We heard few folks were waiting for their food as well. I'm just left thinking, if Loam restaurant knows a concert is taking place at the Ace theater and Loam will be slammed more than the usual number of folks who will dine, why not add extra kitchen staff to work? The menu could also be tweaked a bit. There are only a few dishes on the menu that are filling enough and can be considered an entre dish. Mostly, they are appetizer size but entre $price. To be fair, I want to mention this. The burger that came out almost 1 hr. and 30 mins. late was comped .

    I was wanting a place to have a nice dinner before a show at the Ace Theater next door. I was seated at 5:50 for my 6:00 reservation. We did not get any attention from our waiter until 6:40! The waiter had too may tables and it was very understaffed. The food was not amazing. The burger was dosed in a cheese sauce or something. The pasta was not great and tasted like jar sauce and hot dogs. I love the look of the place and it should be great but it is not. Bummer.

    Was dining here out of convenience as I was staying in the ACE Hotel seeing a concert. Bar service before dinner was excellent. Well crafted cocktails and friendly service - not what you usually find in a trendy hotel. Dinner was also a treat. Good food with wonderful service. Staff was happily able to accommodate my friend’s food allergies and the meal was perfect. I highly recommend getting a reservation in advance if you plan on eating here on a weekend.

    Service was awful. We sat down and had to get up and go find our server after about a half hour of waiting. Finally got a drink and the server didn’t come back to our table for another 45 mins. At this point we just paid and left so never got to try the food.

    Service was great however the food is overpriced. I had the burger which was great along with the prawns which are really more of an appetizer than a main course. My wife wasn't pleased with the risotto. I think if this place had a more mainstream menu it would do better especially as a pre-show spot for the theaters.

    It seemed we were the only ones who heard of the Ace Hotel’s Summer Solstice Event: happy hour all day, wine tasting, spiritual healers upstairs. We sat down and asked for the happy hour menu to order some drinks; our host said the bar wouldn’t be open for another hour or so. We studied the flyer on instagram. Right day, right time, right place. Their normal menu was rather expensive and we didn’t get a chance to ask further questions because no one came to check on us for 30 minutes. Probably a miscommunication between staff and managers or something, but still a little disappointing. The other festivities at the Ace Hotel were also underwhelming and under attended. Don’t know what happened. The water also tasted funny. But, the restaurant had nice atmosphere!

    We too wanted to like this restaurant. So convenient when attending a show at the Orpheum Theater. Perhaps dinner is better, but brunch was "meh". I had the frittata which was spongy and small with sour tasting asparagus on top. My husband liked his shrimp and grits. As others have commented, they are understaffed. 2 servers for the whole restaurant (I wonder how many cooks in the kitchen). A lot of time was spent waiting, only to be underwhelmed.

    My wife and I love to attend Concerts at the Ace and Orpheum Theatres on Broadway. This was our first chance to try 'Loam' after eating at 'Best Girl' many times. Loam was fabulous. The food was Fresh. Well prepared and the staff took care of our every need. From Craft Cocktails to Desert we enjoyed all we ate. Will be back before our next Concert.

    We selected Loam because it is near the theater which made it easy for pre-theater dining. Our experience was satisfactory on that point but the food and service was only passing. The servers were nice enough but didn’t seem that professional. Maybe a little more training would help. We had the veggie burger which was a little dry and overcooked. The beet salad contained interesting ingredients like shaved horseradish and fermented egg yolk but these flavors did not add up to a delicious composition. Maybe we just chose the least tasty items on the menu? We didn’t have a bad time but it wasn’t memorable.

    We had an amazing meal. Unfortunately: We had a server who was being trained and was definitely not ready for the job. She came by our table too often, didn’t know much about the food and generally, caused a little bit of stress for us.
