This is always a good restaurant to go to, excellent food, exceptional service, can't recommend it enough!
Second time we’ve been here. The entrees were excellent. So cohesive and flavorful. The small plates is where it was lacking for us, the squash blossoms were amazing. But the panzanella Salad was overly soggy and the bread had disintegrated to nothing. The pepperoncini were super fried and were so cooked that they were also mushy and it felt like it needed more aioli and hazelnut. But still love coming here, we will be back but maybe next time we will do al mains!
Great food with a diverse menu for all tastes. The service was excellent and drinks at the bar before hand were well crafted. The noise level was lively but still easy to hold a conversation. The wine list had a good variety and range of prices, markup was reasonable.
Great environment and food. They seemed understaffed, as a result, we sat with food and no plates or cutlery, until we got up and asked for a some. The waiter handed it to us in the middle of the restaurant (rather than brought). In general, they need to better train their staff.
Truly wonderful service and exceptional food, what else can you want!
Great bar and unique cocktails to with its outstanding Italian dishes
Worth trekking all the way to the industrial part of LA!! Great food and great ambiance, spacious, comfortable, easy parking...definitely a winner!
Birthday and Emmy nomination celebration
Food was poor. This was an expensive restaurant and I can get better Italian food at the much cheaper restaurant in my neighborhood. This restaurant was all style, no substance. It was very telling that when we asked the waiter to recommend the best items on the menu, he did not seem very excited about any of them.
Great overall experience.
Dinner was nice - if you’re looking for traditional Italian food, this may not be the spot for you. I think we may have been expecting more traditional Italian food so we weren’t 100% satisfied, but the food we ate was cooked well and was presentable. A little disappointed that we came for a birthday celebration and indicated it on our reservation but nothing was mentioned upon arrival or throughout our meal.
Overall it was nice, but probably will not return.
I love the ambiance of Officine.. They maintained many of the warehouse elements including the high ceiling with the sky lights and north window wall. Having a conversation was easy. The menu is very interesting and we found many dishes to share. . All of the dishes were delicious and flavorful. After dinner, the Som took us next door to see the new Pizza kitchen.. I believe it was just opened. We want to go back and try it as well.
The waitstaff was professional. No 'I'm Bill and I'll be your server tonight." Questions were answered, and recommendations offered only when requested. We were one of the first couples seated, and we liked how new diners were seated so we were not overcrowded.
Great food, excellent service! We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed our meal.
From the Factory Kitchen to Officine Brera, these people are doing a great job. We return again and again and are simply dazzled with delicious food!
I suggest the everyone within driving and plane distance give it a go when in downtown LA.
Nothing special. Expected food to be great given their reputation AND the prices. But NOTHING stood out, the food was simply edible.
Sat outside for a business dinner. Ordered the Gnocchi (delish!!), swordfish and zucchini blossoms. Everything was tasty!
Excellent experience. The food was outstanding. I loved the Rustico (toasted bread, eggplant, peppers, and anchovies) and the gnocchi’s. My only complaint was they only have bottled beer and it’s $10 for a 12 ounce bottle.
I loved it. The food was really good.
It's a beautiful restaurant, wonderful food and a superb staff. The kind of place you want to eat and enjoy every bit, slowly, BUT in case you're in a hurry, going to a concert, it is still the place to go. We had to hurry through our incredibly delicious meal... didn't matter it was still amazing! The entire staff was wonderful and did everything they could to give us the entire "Food" experience, including dessert, lol. We will be back for the long version next time. Thank you Officine BRERA!!!! Fabulous evening.
Had a great dinner and fabulously attentive service. So glad i found this place!!!
Wonderful, as always!
Had to wait 75 minutes after reservation time to be seated.
Our early reservation resulted in a relatively quiet intimate dining experience.
Excellent food and ambiance. It has become one of my favorite restaurants for taking special friends and observing special occasions.
The food and service were incredible - highly recommend this place to say the least.
The atmosphere was lovely, I think that was my favorite part of the experience. None of the waitstaff seemed particularly warm, although they weren't unfriendly. We ordered the bruschetta, fegatini (chicken liver mousse), octopus, and beef cheek.
Bruschetta - there was absolutely no point in having the pork belly on it as it provided no flavor whatsoever and looked a bit pale and unappetizing. The vegetables were nice, though on the whole underseasoned.
Octopus - cooked nicely but once again, underseasoned. My boyfriend hates to add salt when he doesn't need to, but we had to ask for some table salt to help out both this and the bruschetta.
Fegatini - fine but.... underseasoned and underwhelming.
Beef Cheek - now this was reallly nice. The flavors were rich, the meat was really tender, overall the dish was balanced, flavorful, and appealing.
All this and a bottle of wine brought us to over $200 including tip, and I don't think it was worth it. Did I hate it? Not at all. But I'm not anxious to come back any time soon.
Great food and ambiance!
This is a 5 star restaurant - food, ambiance, service - not cheap but worth the price!
Always consistently outstanding.
Loved the food, great and friendly service,
Would definitely go back again
Food was incredible! Plates were smaller than expected but definitely tasty.
Officine BRERA never disappoints. There are good menu choices, good drinks, and a great atmosphere.
I absolutely adored this restaurant’s decor. The drinks were amazing, the food was amazing, and the waiters were kind. I would definitely make this one of my top dining experiences.
What's not to love at Officina Brera? The beautiful space, perfectly appointed with an ultra accommodating staff, delicious and creative dishes and just a special time is created for each diner.
Food, atmosphere and music were outstanding. What threw us off is that the waiter came over at like 9:20 saying the kitchen was closing at 9:30, and we felt really rushed and uncomfortable. Def not the way to run a business you want to be successful.
A somewhat creative spin on Italian food. Food was done well, cooked correctly and nicely presented.
My only complaint is the noise level. It is deafening.
compared to other italian restaurants this is the most fancy looking one and honestly, as a born and raised italian, I was expecting some more authentic food. Honestly the corn in the fish pasta was the trigger...but price is okay, at least it isn't insanely crazy expensive for what you get.
The food was delicious.
For any occasion - in the neighborhood, pre-theatre, birthdays and anniversaries, gathering with friends, or simply in need of authentic and cutting edge Italian, RUN to Officine BRERA. Under most chefs, authentic and cutting edge creativity is an oxymoron. But when chef owner Angelo is in charge it's an array of memorable offerings one can find at only a handful of places here in LA.
Waitstaff is world class with the training and inclination to listen and help guide us toward a great evening. with questions and recommendations based on an authentic desire to enhance the diners experience .
It's not on the beaten path for westsiders but it's worth making sure to keep this place on our radar.
