Officine BRERA Ratings and Reviews
We joke about never needing to go East of the 405 but boy were we wrong. We were thrilled with our 11th Anniversary meal at Officine Brera. It's a great space that felt warm and inviting with the essence of the grill and the bubbling noise of happy patrons. The service was fun and friendly, providing great recommendations and never making us feel rushed. The menu was overwhelming, in that everything sounded good. The meat and fish was cooked to perfection and left us looking forward to a return visit soon.
Let me start with the pros. The service was spectacular. Ambience is awesome. Lively and fun. Love the building. Staff is friendly and helpful.
I just cant believe j gold put this in his 101 list. Maybe top 200.
The off menu crepe is the dining highlight.
The cocktail menu is interesting but good not great. The mock tails are inventive fun and delicious.
However other guests at dinner were raving about their food, and would rate food 4 out of 5.
Let's start with the positives. The restaurant is a nice space and the service was good. The cocktails and the small plates were good. But the pasta and the entrees just weren't up to snuff for a restaurant at this price point. The pastas were very intensely flavored and rich but to the point of being cloying and too unctuous to enjoy. There was no balance in the flavors. So we didn't even finish them. The fish however was utterly forgettable and fairly flavorless. Not horrible; not worth sending back; but a pointless dish that we didn't finish. The lamb was better but not great or worth having again. At this price point -- roughly $100 per person before tip (we had a few cocktails but shared entrees), the restaurant has to do better.
We had a lovely meal with family from out of town. I love the room, and the service has always been great.
We especially loved the cuttle fish salad, and the chestnut pasta with lamb ragout.
The noise level is pretty high, and it was difficult for conversation across the table--that is the only downside.
We will happily return!!
The evening was a surprise for my wife for our 8th anniversary. My wife's smile started the minute we drove into the valet area and did not retire until the evening concluded. The service was pleasant and accommodating from the time we pulled up to when we were seated ordering our hearts out. The menu had changed just a bit from when I reviewed it online but the improvisation to try something unexpected led to a utopic dining experience. Our flavorful excursion began with the tender octopus salad, followed by the rich and creamy black truffle pappardelle, and tastefully highlighting our il secondo with delectable bone-in new york steak. To sweeten the deal, we ended the evening on a chocolate note with the budino di cioccolato that resonates in my taste bud memories days after.
Delicious food in a very cool industrial environment. Scrumptious risottos, pastas , salads. Stuffed squash blossoms were yummy. Every dish was beautifully presented and flavorful . Server was well versed in the dishes and very attentive. Would eagerly return
I will have to say the host was awesome and so was the manager Mr. Sorgini. I had a blast with my brother and really enjoyed the decor and home feel you get there. not to mention our waiter was sweet as caramel and the bartender was phenomenal by adding mint in my OJ :) THE MANAGER WAS RATIONAL AND GENEROUS WOULD DEF COME BACK :) Perhaps for my bday too
The experience we had at the restaurant was very good. The problem always is the Valet Parking. They lost our car key and didn’t tell us at first. We waited for 30 min before they admitted. We had to leave the car there and went home not knowing what really happened. Be careful when you go there and leave your car. As a such a busy and desirable place I think their Valet parking selection should be more careful!
The past two times we have visited the restaurant for dinner, the experience has been a disaster. They don't train their staff, and this leads to really bad results. First time, we arrived a bit early for our resevation and they told us our table was in the process of paying. What they didn't say was there were four reservations who also had been waiting past their reservation time and they were still waiting for those tables to pay. Ultimately, we waiting nearly 45 minutes past our reservation time. It was late so give the lack of late night options in LA, we were stuck. The second time we ordered three starters and two mains to share among three people. The waiter told us one of the mains was no longer available. We ordered a replacement. Instead, he only put the replacement on our order and dropped the first main. When we reminded him we ordered two mains, 30 minutes later he brought a completely different dish because they had run out of some ingredients for the dish we ordered. Clueless. He really felt bad but he also didn't know what to do--like maybe even offer to comp a couple glasses of wine because of his enormous screw-up. Manager was checked out and although on the floor, never came by. So we are never going back.
