We have tried every Friday throughout this summer to go to The Office on Fridays for the Fish of the Day. We sit outside which has a higher noise level due to the traffic. We have always had excellent service that is quick and friendly making an enjoyable afternoon or evening. The fish, just plain excellent, cooked to perfection. This... More

Nice attractive space with a nice patio. It's a little loud on the patio because it's on the street, but that's OK. I recommend doing the 1/2 and 1/2 lunch special, you'll get to sample more.

I have been to the office several times and with the exception of their substantial salads I have been slightly underwhelmed by the food flavor and quality. Our last visit was disappointing as none of the speciality beers on the menu were available and we were offered some less desirable options. In the end it is a great location and... More

I had to Porkchop which was excellent. The mash potatoes didn't have a lot of flavor. My guest had the salmon and loved it a lot. Service was excellent. Very much on top of things for lunch and refill the drinks without even asking. We will definitely come back!

The food is good; with a variety of menu items. Portions are very large. The serving staff is extremely attentive and helpful. They offer a small number of items in smaller portions, especially salads.

I've been here multiple times, and usually for lunch. The appetizer choices are awesome. The Rueben is to die for, and OMG is you can finish it.........Great staff, friendly crowd, and awesome food.

I've been to The office a few times and I have to say that it is a perfect place to be in any season. The opened area of the restaurant has a couple of nice bars where you can have your food and drinks during a sunny day or to heat up with the integrated fire place during a cold... More

While we enjoyed the atmosphere and the burger was good, we received very poor service. The menu was typical bar fare. The prices were a bit on the pricey side. It is a very quick walk to the Arcada Theater, which made it convenient for us. We might try it again, but we are not in a hurry to go... More

Nice place to come for drinks. The food was okay, nothing to write home about. The sangria was below average. Service was good.
