    The food at Factory Kitchen is what keeps us coming back.Mandilli de seta- just wow! We also shared the kale salad with ricotta, and the traditional focaccia. All were great. We had a variety of main courses that were delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    We were bummed to be served pasta with clams that were gritty (ravioli di mare). Not thoroughly cleaned clams is surprising in a restaurant of this caliber. The stuffed peppers (peperu) appetizer was surprisingly bland. Our other pasta dish (casonzei) was fine and the duck entree (anatra) was good. The wine and cocktails and service were all okay. The atmosphere is very loud (lean-way-forward-to-hear-each-other-talk-loudly kind of loud). Overall, we were really disappointed in our experience.

    Took my girlfriend here for a date night we loved it. It’s in the middle of the super hip arts district. You wouldn’t want to be here 10 years ago but it’s fine now. They have valet parking we walked in with a 7pm reservation they sat us down and beverages us up right away. Will definitely come back here.

    Considered to be a hidden gem place within the art district. Great ambiance. Pastas were amazing, although portion was a bit small. Perfect place for a larger group so that people can try more varieties of food selections.

    The food is good but the customer service was so terrible. I was make the reservation on 12/29 and accidentally book one day before, when I notice this mistake that I call the restaurant and they told me they can help me to make the other reservation on 12/29. But unbelievable that after I had my party at 12/29 and my whole group spend $600 than I notice the restaurant charge me $180 on my bill for no show fee!!!!! When I call to tell the worker I accidentally make the wrong date that they charge me the $180 and help me to make the other reservation?! How can this be happen??? I try to contact the restaurant to explain and they offer me to make the other new reservation in the future to use the $180 as credit. I think I only can contact my bank to resolve this. Really bad experience ever.

    I was looking online for a dinner restaurant with an outdoor patio for which I could make a 5:30 p.m. Monday reservation the day after Christmas in downtown L.A. when I stumbled upon reviews of the Factory Kitchen. The patio is in front, but the street is very quiet (at least that day), so in terms of being able to have a conversation, the outdoor patio was perfect. The parking is adjacent, fenced and valet, so my concerns about walking around downtown L.A. by myself or walking back to my car myself were completely unnecessary--it's a 50 yard walk mostly in sight of the parking valet. We were also impressed with the food and the service. The patio had heat lamps and one of the waiter's first questions was whether we wanted one or two on and on high or low. I'd definitely recommend this place in terms of the food and service, but also being able to give it 5 stars in terms of a spacious and quiet outdoor patio and easy parking was an unexpected bonus in downtown L.A..

    Incredible meal, great service. It had been a while since our last visit. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal. The prosciutto appetizer, fresh made pasta, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, and the cannoli were all fantastic. They also make excellent cocktails. I highly recommend the Factory Kitchen!

    As a repeat customer, I was incredibly disappointed by my last visit. Do not sit on the patio unless you want to be forgotten. A coworker and I arrived for a noon reservation, but by 1:30 our entrees had not yet arrived. Since we were on a lunch break, we had to ask for our food to go and then still had to wait. When we arrived, there were 2 large parties, but no one else. When we left, the restaurant was very busy, but we saw customers who arrived long after us who not only got their food before us, but had enough time to finish it and leave before we got our food! When I went inside to explain we needed to get back to work, couldn’t wait any longer, needed our food to go and to pay the bill, there was no apology or compensation from the server or the manager. The hostess was the only one who expressed regret. To add to the unpleasant experience, the valet company uses a website to request your car. After waiting 15 minutes for my car, I finally see the valet strolling around. He hadn’t seen the alert on his phone, notifying him of my request for my car! $120 later, I had a cold meal and scrambled to meet a work deadline.

    My friend and I both have sophisticated tastes, and we loved every moment of our experience TFC. Started with one of the best versions of a Manhattan (with Fernet) we’ve ever had, beautifully balanced between sweet and zingy. We shared two entrees, the ravioli stuffed with shrimp and the osso buco; both were stunning. Our server was quick and kind, the outdoor patio was perfect, and we wished we had room to sample more of the menu. A memorable evening!

    Really cool spot in an interesting area. The google information indicated Vegetarian options, but I would say this is not a place for Vegetarians and certainly not for those who are plant-based/Vegan. The service was not great. That being said, the food was awesome. Appetizers, gnocchi, parpadella with rabbit, pesto and deserts were great. If you love pasta I would recommend making the trip.

    We always enjoy our dinners at The Factory Kitchen. It was quieter than usual which was nice because we could really hear each other as we were conversing rather than feeling like we needed too yell. Everyone from the front to the wait staff was very accomodating and on their game and we never felt rushed. The food was exceptional as always, we ate way too much!

    Expected really delicious food and while ingredients on menu sounded unique and inventive, nothing really was really particularly delicious. Service was also pretty slow and inattentive. Maybe they were short-handed. Employees were very nice and polite and friendly nonetheless.
