The cheeseburger I ordered was delicious. But for $18 it was pretty small. I was still a bit hungry.

The food was absolutely delicious. The staff were friendly and were fast enough to get food out. The food is quite expensive btw.

The tea service as nice. They were things missing here and there but our waiter was very nice. The scones were fresh as were the desserts however the tea sandwiches felt like they had been sitting around for a bit as their bread had hardened. Otherwise overall not bad.

Friday night at 8.30pm and it was absolutely deserted - only 1 other table in the whole restaurant.

Not great ambiance but the food was good and the server was attentive and helpful with my dietary restrictions.

The buffet is EXTRAORDINARY and a steal at $22! Also, they have a $20 hard car wash that is the best in LA!!! My only con about this place is if you washed your car they would waive the valet fee - They charged me this time which I think is nuts but it was still worth it. Go - its YUMMY!

we went for restaurant week and food was so so. The hotel has nice sitting areas but the restaurant is sterile. Service was excellent however, for $49/person, we could have had a much better meal elsewhere.

Went in for dine in la and the hotel itself is super elegant very clean, the staff is welcoming. The food overall was 3 stars took forever to get served and they only had one waitress for the whole restaurant, wish they would’ve let us know about the roof top bar/restaurant, feel like giving it a second shot for brunch and tea on a Sunday on the roof top. I did enjoy the dessert the baklava French toast very tasty.

My bff and I went there for a girl’s day out. We took advantage of the DineLA lunch menu. The appetizers were delicious especially the risotto, but the entrees were so so. Mango cheesecake was good. Service at the restaurant and at the valet was excellent. It was my girlfriend’s first time there and she was impressed. Overall, we had a good time there.

Our last visit to Boxwood over a year ago was not good (food & service sub-par). So when they appeared after a hiatus on DineLA, and they had a good menu, we decided to go. We were pleasantly surprised by and very much enjoyed the offerings. Everything was great - fish tacos, salad and risotto (I have always loved their risotto) and of course the fish & chips. Even the baby liked his share. The server Dennis and hostess were friendly and helpful (all the people were, really). Now we're excited to come back.

I was really disappointed. Service was so slow by the time we got our food, 30 minutes after ordering, it was cold. I had coffee but wasn’t offered milk/cream. When my cold English Breakfast was served, there was no butter. That took another 5 minutes. The servers seem to have no interest in us at all.

We came to the Boxwood excited for our first Chef Ramsey restaurant experience. We know Chef Ramsey doesn’t actively run this restaurant and unfortunately so would anyone who walks through the bar area. The seats were stained, our plates were dirty, the place was absolutely dead and the beef Wellington, was, well, a bit doughy on the inside. We’ll be a bit more careful in the future picking a restaurant purely because of his name.

The service could have been a little more attentive. I had to keep hailing someone to order our meal or more dressing or to get the check. Do we have to ask for water as well when we give our drinks order? Bread doesn't automatically come to the table? Next time does bread have to be specifically ordered as well? I like the view and it was quiet. It was an excellent venue for a lunch meeting.

We had a little snafu with our initial reservation, but Deborah at Boxwood sorted the problem out immediately and with zero fuss. We enjoyed a beautiful, delicious afternoon tea with really terrific, friendly and efficient service. AND all in a beautiful and quiet room!

It was hotel breakfast, and it was disappointing. The meal was OK, but I had to go to the buffet to get my toast and had to toast it myself. Rather odd considering I was ordering off the menu. By the time I had the toast, my eggs were cold. The server was odd. He was very distant and didn't seem to enjoy answering questions.

A sad state of affairs at the London and Boxwood. Brunch anyone? Don’t mind the stains on the fabric chairs. Don’t mind the sassy waiter and his attitude. Don’t mind that they are clearing out the brunch just as we order. Don’t mind that you have to argue with a bus boy and then have a manager referee just to get a bagel. Don’t mind they comp nothing - oh wait the waiter said we could have the cappuccino because he was nice. No apology. This has happened a few times but it had been long enough for me to forget. Not again.

But then We finally get upstairs for the Sunday jazz brunch which starts at 11. Well make that 1130 well make that 12 yes we did get one set at 12 before the band disassembled. This was their big plan?

A hopeless organization I hope they get bought by someone with some sense of service and hospitality

I should have known the experience would be bad based on the incredibly rude reservation host who practically yelled at me when confirming my reservation. But the worst was not just getting seated at the worst table in the restaurant behind a wall- the service was spotty and the food was insanely overpriced. Their tea selection is a joke- they should not be marketing themselves as a place for high tea. Overall a very poor experience.
