Came here with a group from work for dinner. One of the folks with us is a real foodie and said we had to try this place. Well, in our large group, they never did get her order. She had to go back in and re-order her food since no one knew anything about it, even after the rest of... More

As a "Burger Dude," TravelinAlan had high expectations for this highly rated place. Surprise; it exceeded my expectations. The cheese burger is unequivocally one of the best burgers in Los Angeles. Served on a roll, not a bun, it is big, very flavorful, very juicy, very good. The thin, crispy fries with a nice mayo dipping sauce are ok. I... More

I love this place. With over 30 beers on tap, there is something for everyone here. Add on an interesting menu and you have a great gastropub. The Office Burger is good, but it is not really my type of burger, so I usually order the steak. The sweet potato fries are awesome though. Place usually gets packed at certain... More

If you like a Burger that is far from the traditional American cheese, ice burger lettuce and tomato slice, this is the place for you . ( but dont expect any substitutions) The Office burger is one of the better burgers trending in Los Angeles. With dry aged beef Carmerlized onions, gruyère & maytag cheese, bacon and arugula . (...

Friendly bartenders, and simple menu with good food. Get the burger even if you don't like blue cheese, it's yummy

Father's Office has so much going for it -- ordering directly from the counter so you interface directly with the bartenders and don't have to split bills with friends or family; an appealing and tasty menu that usually has some surprise additions; an outstanding selection of crafty draft beers. Skip dessert here.

After watching a movie screening in Century City, I could not resist a chance to eat dinner at one of the best burger joints in the city. I've gone here a couple of times, and on a weekend, almost impossible to get a seat. Luckily, my friend and I came on a weekday so it wasn't as bad. Great burgers,... More

Great place to relax for a while. The food and drinks are well planned with great burgers and plenty of draft beer options with classic cocktails too. A bit on the pricey side though, expect to spend $15-20+

I lived near the original Santa Monica location in 2006, and don't remember ever being asked how I would like my burger done. I was surprised that they asked at this location. That is not a complaint, just a statement. I don't appreciate haughtiness as a fashion statement, so I like the idea that they are mellowing. Fantastic beer selection,... More
