    The food was fresh but a little eh. The pesto noodle dish had no texture (maybe the noodles were over cooked?). The cheese pizza (sorry forgot the name) The dough was raw still. The one in’s San Diego served with honeycomb is outstanding (they are located on little India street) sorry tough to beat that. Our server was phenomenal tho.

    The service was fine and food good. We entered the restaurant at 5:50 and were promptly seated. All was great until we placed the dessert order. There was a flicker of lights and three of the four deserts were promptly served. 15 minutes later we flag down a waiter to see we were missing a dessert. He said that’s because the computers are down. 15 minutes we asked another waiter. 10 minutes later the last dessert was served. We saw no one again until 20 minutes later. We were told the computers were still down and it would be another 10 minutes. 20 minutes later we were given our bill and a slip of paper. We were told to write all our credit card info and they would run it later. No thanks. Fortunately we had cash so we paid and left. Problems happen. But the manager should have come and explained the I situation and at the very least comped our desserts. No one came no apology. We won’t be back

    Husband and I had dinner here before a show at the Orpheum. From the time we sat down till the time we left the experience was incredible. The staff was warm and welcoming. Our server Julie was amazing and had great recommendations and we never felt rushed. The presentation and taste of the food and drinks was over the top. We could order the prosciutto with some drinks and eat that as a meal! Definitely recommended and will be back ourselves.

    I have been to Factory Kitchen more that 1o times in the last few years. The food is consistently good and innovative . My complaint is with the atmosphere of the restaurant. The room is very noisy , in part because of all the hard surfaces but also because of the very loud music played over the sound system. The 80s pop tunes makes this place feel like a club not a restaurant . I want an enjoyable dining experience where I can talk without yelling to my friends and have great food. And even though the restaurant was not full, the waiters/ servers were in a constant state of running around at full speed- not ideal for an costly dining experience.

    The experience was less then expected. Did not feel like being in a Michelin Star resturant. It was just like another ok Italian resturant sadly. The service was moderate and had to wait too long for getting items ordered and had to repeadly request for items like bread and butter, oil and vinegar , etc etc .

    This was such a great place for date night. The food was on point and it really felt like we were at the chef’s house just trying what he made us. The service was impeccable and the atmosphere was fun. My only little complaint is that while sitting outside there was a weird smell but I tried to overlook it lol. I definitely would go back and sit inside and enjoy the food even more. I highly recommend the gnocchi! That boar was so tender and perfect.

    Birthday dinner . 2 other tables also had birthdays . Both tables received a complimentary dessert . My table didn’t . I ask s host if it said Bday in their notes . She said yes . Manager sat there looking bewildered . Rude . Won’t come back . How about an apology at the very least . Or here’s a dessert to go . Beyond rude for a restaurant with prices at this level .

    Hosts didn’t listen to me when I said I can sit at the bar since my date couldn’t show up and said unfortunately we can’t seat u at a table with one guest, I repeated and said I’d like to sit at the bar. Bartender didn’t have any recommendations didn’t bring bread service when i said I was really hungry and the wine glass prices were out of this world .
