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!

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.

Enjoy!

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.
