So this area used to be mostly furniture stores and art galleries.The transformation has been quite noticeable. So hear we have a place that gives great ambiance inside and out! I prefer outside seating in the late evenings. I like that it's kind of tucked away off Venice blvd. Between the old Helms Bakery Building. My father who's 70 recalls... More

My only issue with this place is that they don't allow kids under 21. So we always do take out. No changes on the burger but that is cool. Just get the burger and fries and a beer. Heaven

We live walking distance from fathers office - and when I want a burger it's the only place I want to go! Their burger is delicious, you can't customize, so if you don't like everything they put on it, this burger might not be for you. I happen to love everything. It's just perfect. Go for medium rare (it's what... More

When in Culver City, there are many dining options. Father's Office brings their unique style to beer, wine, and terrific burgers flawlessly. In the Helms complex of high-end shops, adjacent to the best hot dog cart on the planet, and up the pedestrian walk from a very nice French restaurant, Father's Office is a nice choice for an easy dinner...

First off, it's technically a bar so you'll have to leave your kids at home. The food is excellent - I've had almost everything on the menu and it's all been great. Brilliant beer and wine selection, a very small cocktail menu (don't try and order a vodka soda here - it won't happen). You order at the bar, they... More

The burgers and garlic fries here are the best. The burgers are really flavorful and the fries were perfectly cooked with lots of garlicky flavor. The burgers have a rich meaty flavor to them and it is a nice size sandwich. The only thing that I did not like was that you have to order at the bar and then... More

Went with my brother and a friend - we were fortunate to snag a spot quickly at the bar. They had beers and I had cider, all of it was okay. I had a burger that was alright, fries that were pretty good and my brother got an appetizer that he wasn't thrilled with. It's a hip place and the... More

Juicy, flavourful, intense.. The fries were crispy as they get. Beer on tap from the walls. #whatdiet

The best burger I've ever had, period. So good, that I order a burger every time I visit, and can't comment on the rest of the menu. The fries are spot on, and there is a good selection of beer. You should order the burger.

Loved the variety of wine and beer here. The Indoor/outdoor environment made this small venue feel roomie and inviting. The food seemed over priced and undersized, but still very tasty.
