Pasta filled with sausage was dry and too oily. Pasta tasted fresh. Prices don’t match their food quality. But expensive probably because of their Michelin star. Overall it was alright.

The Factory Kitchen was great! Our table was not ready when we arrived so the manager sent over complimentary appetizers to apologize for the wait. The food was incredible! The service was wonderful. Can't wait to return and try more of their delicious pasta! Highly recommend!

Enjoyed our time at Factory Kitchen. Service was excellent from ordering drinks, to recommendations, to timing our courses. Didn’t feel rushed at all. Everyone enjoyed the prosciutto (outstanding) and flatbread starters. Handmade pastas were scrumptious and the other entrees were enjoyed as well. Inside ambience had a cool vibe, too-industrial, yet comfortable.

Very loud, not easy to have a conversation, even with less tables and spacing due to covid. Acoustics of the place just aren’t good. Outside seating is the way to do it. Was not impressed with the end flavor of anything that was ordered, I’d stick to the pastas as that’s what they seem to do best

We might have had a better experience if we were sitting indoors. The outdoor seating is so gloomy and makeshift like. It had no ambience whatsoever.
The food is just ok. The wine was average. I do have to note the excellent service though. The staff were very professional and super friendly.
Overall - we had a lot of expectations from this dinner, and were we all disappointed.

Since it was the beginning of indoor dining and limited capacity at the end of COVID restrictions the sound/noise was moderate and comfortable for discussion between older adults. So, it was a more pleasant evening than Pre pandemic noisy Factory Kitchen.

The food is great - we had to wait for a table even though the said it was ready and the manager gave us attitude when my son who is just starting to drive missed that there was a valet so parked himself... was a weird start to a great night.
We DID have great service and the food was great- especially the Spicy Stuffed Peppers app, and the pastas- except I wouldn't order the Shrimp Pasta again as it needed some ummph. The rest was wonderful and we did have a great time1

The host was great very professional as well as the customer service. I have to say I believe it was the manager I’m not Quite sure but he kept staring which made me feel a little uncomfortable. We we’re a party of 3 I was with my mother and older brother celebrating his special day. In all honesty I’m not sure what his intentions where it just made me feel rushed. Overall we were satisfied with the food and the workers were great.

Let me begin by saying that it has been a long time since dining out and this was my first time at The Factory Kitchen. I decided to celebrate my dear friend's birthday by taking her out for dinner and drinks.

After being seated (and being the only Latinas in sight), our waitress took our orders only after recommending some items on the menu. Soon after, we received our dinner to find out that she got my order wrong. My friend was kind enough to wait until my dish arrived so we could eat together, even though her meal was more like cold pasta by then (or maybe it was just the gusty winds since it was outdoor seating, after all.)

There were no drinks in sight (even though the people seated after us received their cocktails and wine before us). Because I had already finished my dinner - and the drinks had yet to arrive, I asked our waitress to cancel our drink order. Ultimately, our drinks arrived, but only after a 45 minute wait. During all that time, my friend and I started to recall our previous dining experiences at other local cafes/restaurants where we were forgotten or treated differently then other guests (ex: waiting 20 minutes for a coffee at a cafe or being asked "What do you want?" by a host and then being the only ones seated on the second floor).

Needless to say, I was disappointed by my dining experience (with the exception of the delicious food!), which I communicated to my waitress and the manager. The waitress tried to make up for it by offering us free dessert and I wish I could say that it was good, but I suppose I already had a bad taste in my mouth by then. Personally, I do not plan on returning to this restaurant in the near future. But, I appreciate that the manager compensating our meal and drinks for all the trouble. Perhaps you might have a different dining experience then me - and I hope you do because the food is superb!

I have been a huge fan of Factory Kitchen since it opened. Very glad to see them thrive, even during these difficult times.

Just returned for a Mother’s Day dinner.

Food is still absolutely amazing (Foca! Mandili! Porchetta!). The best Italian in SoCal hands down and my favorite restaurant in LA.

The legendary service was off a bit that night, however. In my trips to Factory Kitchen in the past, everything was always impeccable—nothing ever felt “off course.”

Maybe it’s the re-opening and the large crowd, but it took us almost 3 hours to finish our dinner that normally takes half the time. The managers/our waiter were all very gracious and apologetic for the delays, however.

Nevertheless, we are so happy Factory Kitchen is still doing well, and we will be back soon.

The food was amazing and the service was great. We tried the handkerchief pesto, seafood ravioli, and the truffle pasta for entrees. We tried every single dessert and my oh my the orange marmalade and pistachio cannoli is to die for. INCREDIBLE food and staff all the way around. This was my second time coming. There are so many great places to eat in LA so I find it taking me years to circle back to the same restaurant. I had been here 3 years prior to this night and it was just as good as I had remembered.
