    Factory kitchen never disappoints. Our party went from 4 to 5 and then 6. They were able to accommodate our request to stay outside. FK is our family favorite restaurant. The food quality, taste and service are always impeccable. As with most restaurants since COVID, some small requests take a while or need to reminder, but we were delighted with the food and service. So so good.

    Celebrated my birthday there, the food was great as was the service. I'll admit, there was a lot on menu I didn't know what it was! I had the lamb which just fell off the bone! I had never had it like that before. Their wine list was HUGE, but we had Theater tickets so we weren't drinking. Overall, a good dining experience...just a bit pricey.

    Excellent food! Great service. I went on a Sunday evening and the restaurant has a Sunday Supper Prix Fix menu. Started with tuna tartare, pasta, turkey meat loaf which turned out to be excellent! I am not necessarily a big fan of meat loaf, but this particular one was excellent and I would recommend. Ended with cannoli, again another excellent item! I would recommend the Factory Kitchen anytime to anyone!

    Food was fairly good. The appetizers, pastas and entrees were all good. The clams dish was terrible. Desserts were just okay. Service was bland and nonexistent at the end. Noise level is too loud when I have to shout to my friend just to talk. And please replace the ripped upholstered dining chairs. They do not look aged/vintage/cool…they just look worn out. Prices were decent so at the end, I didn’t feel like I overpaid given all the negatives.

    This is the sixth visit to Factory Kitchen and the last. We had not been here for a couple of years as the food continued to be disappointing but this visit was the worst AND the prices have become so inflated that there is no justification to go back. The service was decent but everything we had was of poor quality & taste. The cavolonero had almost no taste, the pizzata was a little better but runny and the dish we have ordered every time we have come to Factory Kitchen, Mandili (silk purse) was terrible especially for a restaurant that touts itself as a Ligurian restaurant. Has anyone at Factory Kitchen ever tasted Genovese Pesto? The pesto I get from the grocery store for using at home is so much better than the effort we were given. Prices in all the restaurants that my wife and I return have increased but the quality has remained unimpeachable!

    The staff was incredibly helpful and very nice. Our server Edwin was very charming, answered all questions, and gave excellent recommendations. First we ordered the prosciutto and a new summer appetizer called the raparossa which was very refreshing. The prosciutto was impeccable as always of course, one of my menu favorites. Then of course I had to get my guests to try the mandilli which is my favorite pesto that I have ever had and they were wowed, of course. I wish we had been more hungry so we could’ve tried some of their other dishes which looked amazing when I peeked at other tables. Finally, we had three different desserts of which the olivato or the cannoli was my favorite. Perfectly creamy and delicious. The food came out perfectly timed and the staff behind the scenes did a great job of taking plates or replacing silverware between each round, I was very impressed. Their new summer drink menu deserves a 5 star review all by itself. The 6th street viaduct, very cleverly named, was so good one of my guests is planning of buying butterfly tea syrup to try to replicate at home. The poolside highball was a very cute and aptly named summer drink that’s just as refreshing as a dip in the pool ;). For gin fans the Gin Rosa is something you don’t wanna miss. I would definitely recommend the Never Say Never, although it may sound like a strange combination, is a drink I think all bourbon fans should try. This is one of my go to spots to bring guests in LA and this trip definitely cemented that for me. The manager Jim even stopped by our table to make sure everything was alright and talk to my guests. Overall perfect experience

    We went to Factory Kitchen on my birthday after seeing Monet: The Immersive Experience in Montebello, knowing nothing about the restaurant other than they had last minute availability for 7 and good reviews. WOW. We feel like we hit the jackpot. This was hands-down the best Italian I have had outside of Italy. 🇮🇹 Since we had a larger party we got to try several different appetizers and entrees. Some of our favorites were the stuffed peppers (mild and flavorful!), the prosciutto which came with burrata atop a light, puffy almost donut consistency bread, the traditional flatbread which had a delicate cheese between layers of the thin focaccia, the pesto pasta which had a handkerchief shaped sheet of pasta pulled and twisted into a pretty mound with a light puréed pesto made with almonds not pine nuts, homemade pasta with sausage ragu, and delectable turkey meatloaf. Literally everything was light and flavorful and just delicious. Our server Julie was down to earth and excellent. The place was nearly empty on a Friday late lunch which I don’t understand. We will be back soon!

    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.
