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.

    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.

    Service needs an upgrade. I had to get up too many times. And it wasn’t busy. It was too lax to leave even a 15% tip. Food was delicious!

    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.

    Loved the Five and Five dinner experience by Westside Winos x Loam. The wine pairings with seasonal selections from Loam's menu were spot on. I love trying new wines and learning about their origins. The hanger steak was divine. I thoroughly enjoyed the vibe set by the deejay. This was my first time at Loam and I'm extremely pleased.

    This was the worst service I have experienced in a long time. It took 25 minutes for them to even come to our table and take our order. They brought out one drink and forgot the 2nd person’s drink. The waiter didn’t write down our order so they brought out a wrong item. Finally the next time we saw any staff was when the food arrived and we asked for the drink which was forgotten, it finally arrived half way through our meal. We had to request the check 3 times. The food was only moderate. Nothing special.

    Host and hostess were great. Food was good. Service slow and lacking. Ordered an old fashioned and it came at the end of the meal having had to wait the whole meal. Someone else ordered a Prosecco and it came warmer than room temperature had sharing items off the menu and asked for utensils to serve and never got them. Food got cold whilst waiting but they never appeared. Would try it again and hope for better service

    This is heartbreaking. I first began eating/supporting LOAM when it reopened after the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. Their menu was inventive, to say the least. I found LOAM's surroundings, decor, elegantly understated. Had I found the next secret DTLA smash hit resto? But that's all changed. It's gone downhill. My BF and I ate there last night. ordered five dishes, two cocktails... :-( x 2 Potatoes w/ Anchovies? 14 whole fingerling potatoes came out in a bowl. brown. heaped. the poor things just sat there, underwhelming. the potatoes were dry, very dry. and there were no anchovies, not even a taste of them. when we asked the waiter explained that it's more of an "anchovy dressing". When we said, "cool, but we can't taste any anchovies," he said that something like yeah, it's supposed to be light. to the person who prepares the menus: it should read something like "Potatoes....in light anchovy dressing.." the way its written with Anchovy being the second ingredient after potato one might think the dish is prepared with whole/halved anchovies. just sayin'. $32 Black cod: maybe 3oz. maybe. very very small piece. $32? never again. Service: it seemed we were an annoying burden on the guy. in fac,t he disappeared half way through our dinner. another guy stopped by. then a third guy stopped by. the middle guy seemed interested in helping us, but the "bookend" servers seemed to be gutted to be at a slow resto on a Sunday night. and we felt the brunt of that. Kinda’ sucked. Kohlrabi: server did not explain correctly (nor does the menu). Ingredients were correct, but not the way it was served. Cocktails: could not taste the alcohol. felt no buzz (and we don't drink cocktails often). $128 for two again? NOT AT LOAM.

    Met some friends for brunch. The servers were attentive but did mess up the order. It took longer than expected to sort it out. It was difficult to have a conversation the music was so loud. We asked a couple of times to lower it but it kept getting turned back up, which was annoying considering there weren’t many people in the restaurant.

    The brunch was extremely mediocre. Our potatoes tasted old and dry, like they had been under a heat lamp all day. Most of the food was lacking flavor. And the service was nearly nonexistent. No one approached our table for more than 10 minutes and the table near us had to flag down someone to take their order because no one came by at all. I had high hopes for this place but it was really disappointing, especially for the cost. The one redeeming experience was the house Bloody Mary.

    Very expensive for half decent food. The pumpkin risotto was an odd choice since it’s not fall. It was bad. I also tried the mushroom sandwich, it was greasy and not good. $100 for a McDonald’s visit afterwards
