Italian restaurant, yet server had no knowledge on Italian wine. Food was just ok, service was just ok.....nothing stood out or was overly impressive. I would spend the extra and head near by to Bestia

Very nice and comfortable for a early dinner. However, after 30 minutes the noise built to a level that was very annoying, spoiling the evening. And, this was a Monday! We’ll never go back. Sister restaurant, Factory Kitchen, has better food and a more pleasant atmosphere.

Came here for last-minute dinner date on Sunday night. The ambiance, service, food, & wine list were all on point, not to mention to aroma of burning wood permeating throughout the entire space.

As always, Officine Brera offers a gem of an experience. Fantastic design, a menu that delights in every category, and a wonderful assortment of cocktails, wine and beer. It's a guaranteed great night at this spot and your guests will be amazed at every turn.

The interior is upscale and neat, with a handful different layers of texture.
Food was so good. Highly recommended for people with an artistic sense of dinning perspective.

Excellent service and meal! All our party was satisfied with the dishes we shared and individually enjoyed. Some standouts included the following the grilled lettuce salad, anchovies on toast, pork with polenta and the swordfish with lobster. Can't wait to return!

Food was great. Decor was cool. Place was very noisy (with half the tables empty). Service was condescending, disinterested, and unhelpful. The guys running the food were nice and friendly and gave us info on the food-- too bad they're not getting paid more. Won't be going back.

This was our first meal at Officine Brera and we fest the quality of the food coupled with the prices made it a poor value. We have eaten and entertained at Factory Kitchen many times but this sister restaurant is nowhere near the same quality of value. It is a much bigger place for groups and business and possibly drinks. The Fiori di Zucca was very good. The Riso Milanese was okay and the roasted bone marrow added some good taste. The Spada all Griglia was overcooked and they unnecessarily included four mussels with the dish and they were terrible! Zero taste, fortunately we did not get sick. The service was prompt, courteous and helpful. In total this is a two & a half star review.

Nothing memorable but the prices. Only dish that was good was the tagliatelle. Pulpo was rubbery and the suckling pig was not tender and they didn’t even give a real knife to cut into the skin.

The staff for this restaurant is unfriendly my waiter didn't come back once to ask me how my meal was, if you like speed eating then this is your place I was never so rushed to eat a meal ever! They even tried taking my bill before my card was even given. I would NEVER go back not to mention you have to go threw the Ghetto to get there.

This was my second time. We came in on Sunday and it was poorly staffed. There was only one server.

We order our drinks and it took morenthan 15 minutes to get them. We ordered appetizers and they came late. Once we finished we had to wait a cosiderable amount of time to get the attention of our server.

Loved this place! From the moment you enter the parking lot, with the beautiful entry flanked with kumquat trees (we snacked!), and enter to a wood-smoke laced sexy industrial interior, we swooned. Menu - interesting and delivered! There wasn't one dish that disappointed, and lovely that with the proteins, they are willing to divide or slice for family style. NO CORKAGE on Monday or Sunday, so the wine we brought didn't come with an extra price tag. BONUS!!!!!

The hostess was polite and cheerful, always a plus.
We weren’t greeted by a server for 30 minutes, and a food runner took our drink order out of guilt. I was there to treat my best friend of 15 years to a birthday meal, so it didn’t go off to a great start as he was more antsy for a server than I was.
The food was great, and the ambience was energetic.
I would probably go again, but to be quite frank, I do hope I end up with a different server.

Food was fine, but not the service. (1) Made a reservation, showed up early and still had to wait 20 min beyond my reservation time. What's the point of making a reservation if I still have to wait almost half an hour? Hostess didn’t acknowledge nor apologize for seating us so late. (2) Terrible table layout. Tables were placed so close to each other that it was too tight and uncomfortable to squeeze by with a coat on. Hostess was not attentive and I had to ask her to move the table so I can sit down. We’re guests, not sardines in a can. (3) Lastly, our server only came by to refill our water cups and didn’t ask how we were doing. He basically didn't care. Well now I don't care for you guys either. Poor representation. Your only saving grace was your team of busboys. They politely cleared our table and proactively adjusted the table on my way out so that I can leave comfortably.

The space is lovely and the servers and staff were very friendly and helpful. Everything was presented nicely, but the food itself was disappointing, the flavors lacking in oomph, and the portions were small for the price, particularly $40 for a single thick slice of roast pig that two people at my table shared. The table for four was rather large, making it somewhat difficult to hear each other. For me, a quasi-vegetarian, there weren't a lot of choices, and the choices that did exist were not all appealing (i.e. cocoa-flavored pasta).

My service started out with the server (one of many it seems) spilling our $126 bottle of burgundy onto the table and splashing our clothes. Instead of apologizing, he continued to describe some of the items on the menu that we had asked him about while he was opening the bottle. He did however do us right and mention it to the Assistant GM and he came by and apologized on his behalf and offered cleanings services. We didn't take him up on his offer but at least the assistant GM is a pro. Some of the serving staff seems new to the service industry, we felt a rushed the entire night, constantly being asked if they could clear our plates, plates that still had food on them, from various serving staff, one after the other. There obviously wasn't much coordination here. The food however is very good. We had the duck and seafood pasta and it was some of the best we've had in the area. Our octopus appetizer was also cooked to perfection. Besides the rushed service, I would go back there again because the food was excellent. I wouldn't recommend this place for a first date, fortunately mine was not.
