    Good food and service. Loved the carpaccio altho that’s not what it was called. Good portion size but a little on the expensive side for pasta. Great sparkling rose.

    Wonderful date night at the Factory Kitchen! We asked Edwin for recommendations and he suggested the pesto pasta and was helpful with cocktail recommendations. The food and drinks were amazing we will be back soon. It also was fun watching the plates come out as we were seated near the pickup station.

    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 .

    We are a family of 4 made a reservation for Mother's day. We ordered tradizionale (pizza), mandilli di seta, ravioli di mare and agnellino. The best dish was agnellino, the lamb reblets melted in the mouth. Mondilli di seta (home made ribbon pasta with pesto sauce) has distinct taste, but tasted a bit bland. We were seated outdoors which is very comforting as indoors felt too noisy. Overall the food was outstanding and gets 5 stars and ambience gets 4 stars. There is valet parking but we parked on the street.

    Excellent service, we were heading to the theatre, let our server know we had a window of time, she promptly took our order, sent our food out as we finished our appetizers, never felt rushed. The food was hot, delish and beautiful presentation. I am currently making another reservation as soon as I am done here! Enjoy!

    This is an amazing restaurant and always consistent! It's a little pricey on some items and you really should share some plates! Fro intake the focaccia items are really thin flatbreads and not worth the $27 but are so tasty. However the porch etta is $37 dollars and you get three nice slices and is totally shareable as an entree. The pastas are all homemade at the counter int he restaurant and are exceptional... they may seem pricey because the portions are appropriately sized for a pasta course - but you can't beat the flavor and texture! Overall, this is the place to eat in the factory area

    The majority of the food was great the portion sizes leave people hungry. You really have to order at least four courses per person. The homemade pasta was great but it’s odd when dessert is a larger portion then entree

    Overall as an experience it was ok. Best part of the meal were our main courses. The prosciutto dish could have used a little sea salt or something as could the tuna appetizer. That coming from my wife who doesn't like a lot of salt to begin with. The ossobucco and the gnocchi were really tasty and nice portions. Most restaurants probably don't think of the restrooms as an important part of the whole dining experience, but they are. The men's room could've used some work. One of my biggest pet peeves has to do with the sink. Have a faucet that you can actually wash and rinse your hands off with. Having a faucet that barely extends over the sink so as you're trying to rinse the soap off you actually are touching the back of the sink kinda defeats the purpose of using soap. One other thing of note, I was wearing a black shirt and my wife had on black pants. The cloth napkins were white and full of lint. Hostess never offered to have black napkins and in speaking with the manager after our meal apparently that was something that was discussed prior to opening that evening.

    So happy to return to our favorite spot for dinner at the bar, this time with (relatively) new bartender Frederick, who was spectacular! Listen, Factory Kitchen is always a solid option with consistently good food and service. Given the spikes in restaurant bills these days, the dishes and portions here are consistently delicious and generous. We had finally cashed in our Open Table points and decided we wanted to spend them here, and we are so very happy that we did! We enjoyed the cremosella (a baby kale and green bean salad with luscious mozzarella and their ligurian pesto, a favorite) as well as the fried baby leeks and chickpea fries (another favorite), the roasted beef with dijon and parmesan was a new one for us and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We also tried some new dishes in the shrimp ravioli with a seafood sauce with a few clams and langoustines as well as the lamb ribs with kale, cipolline, on a flatbread. Really loved our old faves as well as the new dishes. As for drinks, I loved the blackberry bourbon cocktail and then Frederick introduced us to a few new tricks...or treats, rather! Grazie Grazie Grazie, Factory Kitchen!!!
