Dinner was in a converted parking lot. Portions were small, with poorly cooked ingredients. Was not worth cost of meal.

Outstanding service! The signature handkerchief pasta with pesto was excellent. The second pasta dish with spicy calamari and clam was flavorful but too salty for us so I quickly asked our server to tell the chef to go easy on the salt for our third dish which was pan fried fish and sunchoke. For desert we had a modified version of tiramisu with a buckwheat cake instead of ladyfingers and it was quite nice even though the mascapone was a kind of too sweet for me. Our server was so nice to comp us the desert to make up for the salty pasta.

Food and service were very good. Our server made wonderful recommendations. Staff was very attentive. We sat in the patio area and as soon as the weather turned cold, the heat lamps were turned on without us having to ask.

Met my daughter in LA where she was on a project and she recommended this restaurant. Fabulous quality of food from a menu with so many choices. We shared 3 dishes and left totally satisfied with the evening. Wish I lived in LA so that I could return. Approchable excellence - not common in restaurants with a Michelin Star.

Always a great meal here, and so pleased that they offer dining outside. Brought my mom here to celebrate her first post-lockdown trip to LA, as well as her birthday. She was throughly impressed with the meal, our server was super great, outdoor ambiance was spot on - it couldn’t have been a more lovely evening!

I’d been here once before (pre-covid) and loved it, so decided to take my parents while they were in town. We were all blown away and it was even better than I had remembered. The food is incredible and the indoor atmosphere is great. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone, one of my favorites of any place I’ve eaten.

Food is incredible. Extensive liquor/wine list. Great place for a date; sharing is encouraged and portions are perfect for that. Music and ambient noise are a bit loud, but that didn't detract from our wanting to eat every bite. Standouts were the beet and cheese starter, the porchetta, and the desserts.

Overall the experience was great!! We were celebrating a birthday. Our waiter, Alejandro was great!! Food was great!! Ambiance was great . . . until the very end when the "Manager" came around and told us it was "Time to wrap it up!" That term is right up there with "No Brainer!" To me, it's like nails scratching on a blackboard!! There is a way to "nudge" your guests let them know they have other reservations!!!
Then, I realize in reviewing my bill, that I was overcharged!! I was charged for 2 LI Ice Teas, when they were regular Ice Teas! The was charged a "cake cutting fee" for placing a cupcake on a cake and writing HB on the plate?! I did not make a scene, but I did let our waiter know about it, Thanked him, but told him that his Manager would hear about it.

Wonderful dinner! Our service was excellent - attentive, informative and honest about his recommendations.

Very loud restaurant but great ambience overall.

Handkerchief pasta, Focaccina, and Panna Cotta were standout dishes!

Very cool place. Good for a date or a group of friends. You can bring your own wine for a small fee, it's worth it. The wine list is good but pricey $$$. The pesto dish is amazing.

we very much enjoyed our experience at the Factory Kitchen - wonderful flavours, delicious cocktails and wines, and very (almost too) generous portion sizes. Service was a bit distracted and uneven. We sat outside which was much quieter than inside (way too loud for conversations) but even with the fence covered with photoscenes from the Cinque Terre coast line (?), you would not deny that you were sitting in a parking lot . A few plants or wood rather than metal fencing might help. But no complaints - we'll be sure to visit again.

Food was good to very good. The waiter was knowledgeable about the menu but not very attentive. Bottle of water never refilled and empty glasses accumulated on a small table making for a crowded space. Finished our meal but sat unattended for a long while waiting for the check and then again for my credit card. Disappointing in the end.

The white fish was awful: small, no flavor and overcooked. My parpadelle was cold when served. Felt bad for my guests (who drove over an hour to get to your place) Worse from previous visits. Your non-filled pasta menu is very limited. Missed the osobuco ..you took it off the menu. Hope for better experience next time around or my recommendation will be NO.
