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

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.

Nothing wrong from the quality of food to the service. Definitely the best burger I've ever had. Be ready, burgers are big and will make you full actually I've tried 2 types of burgers with a friend but I don't exactly remember the names but I would recommend them both if I just remember, while that means that whatever you...

... I try to stop at Father's Office for a burger and a couple beers. If you are a beer or burger lover you owe it to yourself to make the trip. On the pricey side but I think it's worth it.
