The grand tradition of downtown dining finds a modern, casual elegance at Caldo Verde. Here, the James Beard Award-winning team of chefs Suzanne Goin and Restaurateur Caroline Styne blend local flavors and boutique wines with the old California influences. The stately setting offers a richly-designed entrance, lobby bar, main room, and private dining. Outdoor seating opens onto the bustle of Broadway, while historic windows bathe the architectural space in natural light. L.A.-based artistry runs throughout, from Morgan Peck ceramics and lighting, to a monolithic Judson Studios stained glasswork.

    The price fixed Sunday dinner was a big treat. The watermelon & tomato salad was well flavored with a variety of tomatoes that were well matched with the dressing. The fish and lamb course were very well prepared well executed in presentation. The blue corn shortcake dessert had an unusual texture and was also delicious.

    The food was absolutely incredible! Very flavorful! I recommend going for the Proper Lunch which is about $29 and comes with an appetizer and an entree (I think only available during lunch hours Wed-Friday). I had the asparagus and artichoke for the appetizer and I was absolutely blown away! Definitely recommend that plate! I then had the lemon chicken and everything about it was phenomenal. The salad was fresh and delicious, the fries were cooked perfectly, and the chicken had a ton of flavor. The restaurant itself was beautifully decorated. I will definitely be back!

    Had an amazing meal at Caldo Verde! We were pleasantly surprised by the food - the highlights were the prawns, pork chops, piri piri chicken and the Caldo Verde stew. It was all excellent with each dish topping the next. The restaurant was elegant but comfortable and not so loud we couldn't hear eachother talk. I wish they had a few more California wines on the list (mostly as I'm not very familiar w/ all the different Tempranillo varietals), but the cocktails were wonderful. We'll be back for sure!

    We were extremely excited to try a Portuguese restaurant in LA. But my Portuguese other half was not impressed. Said there was no resemblance to Portuguese food. Not even slightly. I was bummed but more disappointed by his disappointment. Paid for a beautiful interior design and ambiance and great service, but food falls short of expectations. Especially for the arm and leg price tag. :(

    We really enjoyed our meal. We ordered family style and shared all the dishes between the four of us. We enjoyed the cheese plate and the potatoes and a seafood heirloom tomato starter and then the duck breast, flat iron steak and chicken. Everything was flavorful and cooked perfectly. The restaurant itself is light filled, warm and very inviting. We ate early so there wasn’t much of a vibe yet, but we enjoyed the whole experience and would recommend!

    I selected special occasion because these days being able to gather with family feels like a celebration. Caldo Verde is a gorgeous space with delicious and exciting food. The entire staff is welcoming and gracious. The service is attentive and friendly. We look forward to coming back soon. This is a great place to meet up with friends and would be a terrific date night. I recommend using the valet parking; there is a service charge which is well worth the convenience. Thank you for a lovely brunch.

    The food and service were outstanding! Many of the menu items are creative and unique. I highly recommend the fried sunchokes, local beets and pork cutlets. The bluenose + fideos and simple salad were also very good. Plates are meant to be shared. Our meal was pricey, but well worth it. Caldo Verde is is a place to put away the cell phone, relax, take your time and enjoy a great meal.

    There was one dish, the chicken that was worth the money. But the entire experience was ruined when I found a piece of plastic in my drink. They were nice and apologized and gave me a new drink. They even made it better by taking the 2 drinks off the tab. They were nice and professional but at this price point making a mistake like dropping apiece of clear plastic into a drink is pretty unacceptable. Don't think I'll be returning.

    We’re fans of Suzanne Goin’s restaurants and were excited to hear of her latest in The Proper Hotel. The space is very open with lots of windows. Waitstaff is very good and and answered all our questions about the menu very clearly. Our food was delicious and of the quality of what one expects from Goin. Definitely will be back!

    Overpriced and didn’t taste good. My girlfriend and I didn’t like one thing on the menu and we ordered just about everything. Don’t get the ribeye it was all fat and burnt. The manager was kind enough to comp us on the steak, a few appetizers and a round of drinks… but still was beyond unsatisfactory for a nearly $300 meal (post comps). The fries were amazing though. Hate to be that guy and leave a lame review but don’t waste your money. I didn’t try the pirri pirri chicken so maybe that’s good?

    This was a dinner for our family of five. We were right on time but almost missed the door. This was sort of hidden in plain sight and was kindly opened for us by hotel staff. Waitstaff was attentive and we began with my favorite for seafood, a fairly priced Albariño. We ordered tons of items from the menu, and the server was so gracious, helping us navigate a few inconvenient food allergies. The iced tea was a little strange but was quickly replaced with another drink. Ordering a variety of things intended to be shared allowed all of us to taste the expanse of this Spanish-centric menu. Our favorite items were the beets, Brussels sprouts, and the pork cutlets. Honorable mentions to the blood Orange salad, flank steak, sunchokes and prawns. Some of us loved the campechana, but I felt the flavor to be dull. A couple of tiny things: leftovers were packed by staff and didn’t always make it back to the table. I’m very particular about water and do not wish to have “any water” in my glass for a fine meal and some of the staff was confused by that. I also didn’t understand why the sides came out before the mains. And finally, I found the signature dish, the Caldo Verde, to be not worth the $72. The accompanying bread was burnt, and the best flavor in the soup was the linguiça. It just didn’t live up to the other fabulous dishes. All in all, it was VERY good food. The two-page wine list was full of very interesting Spanish and Portuguese wines. I’m a Suzanne Goin fan, and I am planning to return.
