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.

    I’ve eaten here probably 6-7 times now. It is outstanding on every level. I’m so grateful to have such a fine restaurant within walking distance. The room is gorgeous, the service attentive and friendly, the food is without parallel in LA. IF you understand food, you will not be disappointed. The Campechana is heaven. Tapas-style dishes are all wonderful. I haven’t had the signature “Caldo Verde” yet - it’s not soup season, for me - but I’ve no doubt it will be delicious. Oh yeah, the bar is super hip and the bartenders always awesome and friendly. You could do a lot worse than Caldo Verde.

    The music was just too loud, so rating it Energetic is not quite truthful. I don’t like having a meal where I can’t enjoy a simple conversation bc of loud music. The service was great. I like small plates, I wanted more variety though.

    I really hate to say this but something is off at Caldo Verde. We ate there shortly after it opened and found it to be very good, which isn't surprising, given Goin and Styne. My wife and I are avid Lucques fans and were crushed when it closed. We returned yesterday and everything about the restaurant was off. The service was some of the worst I have ever experienced in a restaurant at this price point. I could tell that nearly everyone working the floor was poorly trained and inexperienced. We ordered a bottle of wine from the list and they brought us the wrong bottle...twice. I had to show them a picture of the label on my phone for them to figure it out. Watching my server fight with the bottle of wine was painful. It was just clear that she had never been shown how to use a wine opener. 10 minutes of training and a few hours of practice would have solved that problem, but alas. She also didn't pour me a taste of the wine or show me the bottle, which is part of the ritual, just poured my wife and I a massive glass each. I saw another server dump two entire drinks on a patron, because she wasn't carrying the drinks tray correctly. Again - training. It was so starkly different from the service at Lucques and AOC, where each server is a master technician. Saddest of all, the food wasn't up to what I was expecting given Goin's phenomenal reputation. The chopped salad wasn't particularly interesting, far too much romaine, not enough beans or potatoes or chourico. The Piri Piri Chicken was substantially overcooked, the breast meat coming part in shreds. The soft shell crab on brioche was exceptional, though. Melon and nectarine salad was delicious, too. Maybe give the place a few months before they iron out their issues and train their staff. When paying $48 for a chicken entree, there's an expected standard one has and it breaks my heart to say that this restaurant falls far short.

    The revival of “Sunday Suppers” (formerly of now defunct Lucques) is a godsend! I love it when a restaurant/chef limits my choices to focus on what is good/fresh right now. The vegetarian option of ricotta dumplings was luscious and the chanterelles that accompanied it were some of the best I’ve ever had. Those in our party who chose the short rib entree loved their choice as well!

    I took my friend here for dinner, she's a huge fan of the Proper Hotels (Downtown LA and Santa Monica). The atmosphere is beautiful, very calming and relaxing, and super hip. The service was fantastic. I was most impressed with the hostess that night (whoever she was/sorry I didn't get her name, working 9/17/22, our reservations were at 6:30 pm). She was fantastic. Accommodating when I asked to change tables, and my friend was running late, so she even stopped by my table to chat for a moment. The food. Oh my. The food was delicious! We had the pork chops and prawns. So so good all around. After dinner, we sat at the bar for one more drink (we weren't ready to leave ;)). A perfectly lovely evening!

    Joe is a very good server and guided the food selection since this was our first time at Caldo Verde. He suggested the heirloom tomato salad, piri piri chicken and shrimp. We added the soft-shell crab and the corn pudding. We held the piri piri in the corn pudding and that was a good move. the soft-shell crab had a piri piri sauce but tolerable. Better to me without the sauce. The food was ample and very good. We choose outdoor dining and the Broadway/11th Street is as expected noisy.

    Thank you to the team, both front and back of house for an inspired and friendly dining experience. It was so exciting to see an elevated Portuguese inspired menu let alone one all together. It was the big new restaurant on my must eat at list when visiting my former home of Los Angeles, and it did not disappoint. Thank you Chef Goin for hitting it out of the park as usual. The Piri Piri Chicken was familiar, yet new and I highly recommend this traditional dish for anyone who wants a taste of Portugal.

    The location is very nice. The food was really excellent. Huevos Divorciados, Pao perdido were delicious and very well presented. My party ordered the salmon dish, which was perfect. The drinks were really good as well. Very nice ambiance and excellent and attentive service. Only complaint was the valet, who was disorganized, discourteous and expensive.

    We went for the Gabrielle Hamilton, "Prune" talk and dinner and boy, it did not disappoint. We had a fabulous server who was attentive and fun without it being too much. Each item off the special menu was incredible and we added a Caldo Verde tomato salad which had a form of crushed corn nuts sprinkled on the top - sensational!!! We sat outside, right on Broadway, but it didn't feel like you were on a Main Street in DTLA that's for sure. We had a fab night - thank you all!

    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!
