Brand 158 serves American cuisine as well as Italian pizzas to patrons in an indoor or al fresco seating area. Patrons who choose salads will be asked to choose one of the many topping for their salads. Apart from choosing a side, patrons can opt for a delicious add-on which includes cheese and grilled mushrooms. Brand 158's pizza specials include buffalo chicken pizza, all-day egg pizza and Hawaiian ham pizza. Dessert specials include Nutella banana strawberry pizza and the Belle Helene pizza which is made from dark chocolate, pears and marshmallows. The ambience of Brand 158 is very laid-back and relaxed as well.
This restaurant has permanently closed.
My party of 6 truly enjoyed their meals. We ordered sandwiches, pizza and burgers and we all agreed that the food was genuinely excellent. The main thing this restaurant needs to work on is its service. Everyone we encountered was very friendly when we actually encountered them. Over the course of our meal, we either had 3 servers checking on us within 15 seconds of each other or were left alone for 20-30 minute stretches.
My chief criticism of this sporadic "gang" server pattern is that it is completely inefficient. Stations were not definitive and it felt like they were all sort of "winging it". The restaurant's policy to attach a 15% tip to your bill robs the customer of the right to not reward the bad service. It also kills any incentives for the servers to get their act together and strive for excellence. I would say the service was mediocre at best and it is frustrating that the customer is forced to reward lax and apathetic attention.
This place is absolutely wonderful! I hope they open a location in West LA because the food and drinks are delicious and the ambiance is awesome! I have dined in some of the most popular and affluent restaurants around the world and have never been to a place like this. The decor is so beautiful and the attention to detail is superb from floor to ceiling, so I expected high-end restaurant pricing, but was pleasantly surprised by the low price-point menu given the look of the place. Everything we ate was fresh and tasty, and service was excellent. Looking forward to my next visit!
Brand 150 is ultra modern. The food and the service have been consistently good. I plan to return.
If you haven't ate here yet, you are truly missing out on something amazing!!
Service: A++ -- Tiara, you are a true gem! Absolutely pleasure to have you as a server. She was friendly & so funny! Truly a sweetheart. She was helpful with our choices and made sure we were pleased with our selections. We would've tipped her more than 20% if we could have! ...Shant the assistant manager was also great. He came by our table and spoke with us for a bit, making sure we enjoyed everything.
Food: A+++ -- The spinach artichoke dip is a must have! Easily the best I have ever had, trust me! The Brand 158 burger was cooked to perfection and delicious. The kale salad was very tasty. The chicken wrap was also tasty. But the Nutella banana pizza was to die for!!! You HAVE TO, and I mean HAVE TO, order this!!! You will than me for it, I promise!!
Do yourself a favor and stop by Brand 158 for your next dinner or lunch. You won't be disappointed. If Tiara is your waitress, you'll be extra pleased since she's a superstar!! One of the best places to eat in Glendale!!
I live about 30 minutes away from Glendale and every time I visit, Brand 158 is my go to restaurant. Clean, great service, delicious food, perfect location right across The American at Brand. I've dined here many times and whoever I have been with has felt the same.
Everything is amazing under Appetizers, I just haven't tried the Popcorn Fried Chickens since I'm a pescatarian. Salads are fresh. Blackened Salmon and Ani tuna burgers are a must try. I've seen their hot dogs and they look pretty good as well. The house-dough pizzas are my favorite, so many to choose from and you will eat your fingers with it. From the bar my favorite drinks are the Burning Blueberry, Cucumber Basiltini, and the Strawberry Breeze so yummy.
Tried this place out for the first time. Had amazing burgers and pizzas with great drinks priced at $5.95. Staff was very pleasant and attentive.
Brand 158 has one of the nicest staffs I have encountered in a restaurant
I've been to Brand twice. I returned the second time because I enjoyed my meal and the ambiance was quite nice. Although the service was adequate; it was not noteworthy. I returned to celebrate an occasion with two friends. I will NEVER return there again and would not recommend it to anyone. The menu selection is quite nice. Food preparation and presentation are quite good. But the no tip policy has likely engendered unequivocally terrible service. There was NEVER a point during which the staff was burdened or stretched. I don't think there was ever a point that more than 5 - 6 tables had customers. Yet we waited quite some time both to place and receive our order (which were salads all the way around). We were never asked if everything was satisfactory; never asked if we needed beverage refills; and never asked if we wanted dessert. In fact, despite twice requesting a refill on our beverages, we finished our meal before anything arrived. Finally we sat for sometime before I had to ask for the bill. Not quite the celebration I had hoped to achieve with my friends.
There are no pros to this restaurant. Food is subpar and service is non-existent and yet they charge a 15% service fee regardless of the POOR service you are bound to receive.
I had a 2pm reservation and was seated 15 minutes late. Generally this is not an issue but half of
the restaurant was empty. I didn't understand what the host was waiting for. After being seated it took another 30 minutes for someone to take our drink order. At this point we've been at the restaurant for 45 minutes with no drinks, appetizers or any kind of food.
We placed an order for 2 appetizer skewers and a Chinese chicken salad. Our skewers arrived
cold and the dressing on my salad along with half of its ingredients appeared to be from Costco
(not the "gourmet" they claim to serve). Basically, the presentation advertised on their website is
most definitely not what arrives at your table.
For our main courses we ordered an assortment of burgers and two plates of pasta. The burgers
were not bad but definitely not worth the $16-$20 average cost after adding the sides. As for
their pastas, the sauce looked like it came from a jar, the chicken looked like the processed
square chicken at fast food restaurants and the cheese was rubbery.
To sum it up, pick another restaurant.
The truffle fries are amazing, everything else I tried so far has been disappointing will try one more time
Buratta, kale and quinoa salad, mushroom truffle pizza are all wins.
Went to an event at the Alex theater. Wanted a pre show meal fit for adults and teens with a wide variety. Enjoyed burgers, pizza with egg(excellent), and truffle fries (a must). Most bread products are made fresh in house. The brioche hamburger bun and pizza crust were excellent. Cucumber gimlet was fresh and not too sweet. Shirley Temples were made with the juice of burgundy cherries instead of grenadine. Our kids loved them.
Service was really good. Friendly and helpful staff gave good food suggestions and explained the menu. They were not making crepes that night, so very disappointed since that was one reason we wanted to try the place. Pizza and burgers were pretty good, but average selection and nothing noteworthy.
Slow service even though we were the only people in the restaurant - Just ordered 2 salads. Servers were polite but nothing to write home about. The 1st time I went there, they had a great "No tip / no cash - Our reward is when you come back - Business Model" which must have not worked out well for them but instead charge a mandatory 15% fee on top of your bill. Food is mediocre, slow service. That was the last time I will go there.
Easy parking, place is pretty new, environment is pretty cool, casual, the food is really good, the choices are very different and they are willing to accommodate when you want changes in your meal. The truffle fries are amazing, the spinach artichoke dip is also great. I'm not a big lover of NY steak but then again I don't particularly love it even in the nicest steakhouse. Totally going back!
Great location, great service, great atmosphere. Food is ok but could be better.
4 of us had salads with some meats (fish) and 3 drinks. Bill came out to be $110. That's pretty high frankly.
You don't tip at this place but they automatically slap on a 15% gratuity fee. That's on the mid-upper level of tipping if you ask me. They claim it's not the same as tipping but there is little difference.
I'm not sure I'd go back here as it's just too expensive for what it is...you can eat at some decent places for almost $30 a person.
There is a mandatory service fee of 15%, included in your total bill, then you are taxed 9% on that total. Food was ok, expensive for a ahi salad, $16.95. Drinks are average price, $9.00 for Crown Royal and 7up.
We have gone to this restaurant several times and have always been really happy with the food. However, the service keeps getting worse! Our food took forever to be brought out and they also messed up the order. We always order dessert, but had been waiting so long for our meal we skipped dessert. The other problem is that the drink selection is very poor. They have on red wine and one white wine that you can choose from and they also only have four beers on tap. Considering this restaurant has a huge bar, their selection is awful!
I have been to Brand 158 a number of times now and have been very impressed. The menu is very inclusive, the food delicious , and service spot on. The cocktails are unique and very well priced. They also have televisions for sporting events or bored children. I will definitely go back
