Californian
Eve DTLA, helmed by Executive Chef Karo Patpatyan, presents a California take on the traditional European-style cuisine. Eve’s menu puts forth flavorful dishes with influences from Modern California cuisine, such as Duck Confit, Crab Deviled Eggs and Braised Beef Cheeks. Complementing the contemporary fare is curated artwork by The Mayfair’s Artist-in-Residence Kelly “RISK” Graval, including a bold black and gold letter-form mural on one of the main walls by Alex Kizu (also known as Defer), and the restaurant’s eye-catching hand-painted ceiling painted by the artist Cryptik.

Exceptional on every level. Eve is a comfortably and fashionably upscale bistro inside the recently restored and historic Mayfair Hotel in Downtown LA. Modern, sleek but pleasing furnishings make for a lovely ambiance. The eclectic menu offers small and large plates and everything we had was delightful, from the avocado bruschetta and grilled octopus to the sautéed scallops and grilled filet steak. A wonderfully sweet and salty cookie with ice cream topped off the exquisite meal. Service was very friendly, helpful and uncommonly capable. A very special place.

I’m really not sure what was more fantastic; the service or the food! My friends and I were in on a quiet Sunday afternoon while taking a break from conference travel. We sure did find Eve to be a special place and one we’ll return to should our travels bring us back to LA. Highly recommend!

A most wonderful brunch - the prime rib hash not only had an excellent taste but the presentation was stunning, the smoked salmon with the eggs Benedict was perfect, and the Croque Madame was large enough for two with an overflowing cheese sauce that cheese lovers will crave. Service and ambience was excellent. This is our 3rd time eating at Eve - and we will be back!

This was my first time at May Flower since the remodel. I loved the buffet lunch from before. It was in and out so easy for lunch.

Even though Eve had a prefix menu for Dine LA, the service was very slow. I ordered the salmon and kale but didn't realize it was a kale salad. It was good but just not what I expected.

The decor was nicely done.

We went for the New Years Eve Pre-fix dinner - the bread selections are good to start, we both had the butternut squash soup which was more sweet than salty. I had the scallops with truffle which were quite good. The warm cookie with ice cream desert we both enjoyed. Nice cocktails and very good service. the hotel is beautiful and we will definitely go back for a more casual dinner.

Booked for a pre-theater dinner. Absolutely excellent! Gorgeous hotel and restaurant. Crispy Calamari salad was the highlight. So good! Light and fresh. Also deviled eggs and pickled vegetables. Entrées were solid and well-priced. Just expected more from the pasta dish. Service was friendly, bright and attentive.

I think it is wonderful place. Our waitress was exceptional, fantastic. I highly recommend this place. It is a must see masterpiece hotel, all upgrade, incredibly beautiful. You must see their second floor garden, the art gallery, and their beautiful decor. I will definitely be coming back to have a drink or two. The oysters and the duck/pasta amazing. I had lunch, so their menu was limited, but I am hoping to go back for Dinner or brunch. Be ready to be transported to an upscale historic place!

While visiting Los Angeles over Thanksgiving we chose to have a turkey dinner at Eve. Everything was perfect. It was a prie fixe menu ($42) for three courses with a choice of four appetizers, four mains (two with turkey), and three desserts. We chose different things and all choices were delicious. The service was great and everyone was super friendly. Valet parking was &5 with validation. All in all a great experience. We highly recommend this restaurant.

We went for Thanksgiving with my in-laws and the menu was lovely and the food delicious! The staff was EXTREMELY friendly, but I felt a bit rushed with the courses - almost as though they were trying to hurry us along so they could turn the table. Also, we brought a wonderful bottle of wine from our cellar and asked them to cork it. When our waiter did, he didn't allow a tasting sip but rather just started filling my husbands glass. It was kind of strange... Other than those minor details (which I assumed were due to the holiday), we were very pleased with the experience and will definitely go back! Their regular menu looks amazing to us!

Appetizers were terrific, service was very good. Beef cheeks were amazing. We had two issues - octopus was brought out first ahead of all other entrees. They took back to hold for other entrees and when we got it eventually it was cold. Otherwise, great evening.

The Mayfair Hotel renovation is simply spectacular and Eve is connected and a lovely setting with truly awesome food. I've written a prior review about dinner and this one is about Sunday Brunch.

The management seems to want a crowd but is unwilling to consider options on how to draw a crowd. Sunday Brunch requires bottomless Mimosa and Bloody Mary options. It is the sacred law of successful brunch establishments. Limit it to 90 minutes, use a high quality sparkling and vodka, charge $15 - $20 per person on top of food and you will draw a healthy crowd on the weekend that might even then spill over into the gorgeous hotel lobbies to continue day drinking on Sunday Funday. Until this happens, Sunday Brunch at Eve was just an expensive burger that was tasty and a daunting feeling like it was designed for the after church types.

Wanted to take the office staff of 5 out for doing a great job and was so pleasantly surprised at how fantastic the food was. The hotel had been redone since i was there last and it looks fantastic. Back to the food- I had the scallops which i highly recommend. Other dishes that were notable: beef cheeks, octopus appetizer. Try this place you won't be disappointed. Also the staff was great! Friendly and prompt! Oh i forgot- drinks were amazing too!

The food is always fresh and tasty. I just don't understand why the waitstaff lack any warmth. They seem like they wish they weren't there and a forced politeness. I've been there at least 10 times and have had maybe one decent waitperson, who didn't seem frosty and unhappy with life.

A quiet ambience in a newly remodeled Downtown Hotel. Service was memorable, Grace, our server was enthusiastic and warm the whole service and made our first experience one of many. The food was incredible and the drink well served. With the only downside being that there was too much ice in my old fashioned. A personal preference that didn’t take away from an otherwise great dining experience.
