Description: Fill all your senses at Ford"s Filling Station - LA's first and finest Gastropub - where the atmosphere is relaxed yet often bustling. Comfortable seating areas with warm walnut surfaces and Asian rugs create a charming intimacy amidst an informal setting. The patios are intimate, for private parties, and offer a soothing contrast to our energetic main room, which features wood-beamed ceilings, brick, polished concrete floors and an open kitchen. Machine-age lamps accent the wooden bar while large celestial chandeliers create a ceiling of soft light. Our dedication to craft is evident in the American Regional Menu, which is rustic, simple and innovative, yet familiar. The seasonal menu emphasizes flavor in exciting, uncomplicated combinations and in keeping with Chef Ford's earthy palate.

We had a late lunch here. The food was very flavorful. The service was friendly though they disappeared near the end of our meal when I needed a water refill. We had the bacon wrapped figs for an appetizer... twice. They were so good even our near vegan son recommended them. I'd love to go back again.

We happened to walk by this place , It didn't seem too busy so we decided to give it a shot. I guess we went at the right time because not too long after the place was packed!

The quantity of food was pretty good considering the fact that these were considered
"mini bites".

This restaurant was pricey, but once you have eaten your food and find that there is more left over you cant possibly be upset with the 3 figure bill. It turned out to be a great date spot for my wife and i as we both shared the amazing beef brisquet tacquitos, brussel spouts and the AMAZING mac n cheese with Fresno chili. I had the pub burger and added cheddar cheese and the massive slices of bacon they add with a bottle of Hangar 24 (for those of you who love Blue Moon....get it).
Nothing stand out but nothing horrible., a good solid place to have dinner if you're willing to spend a little.
Just good..

Dined here with a family friend for brunch. This gastro pub is comfortable and trendy without being too hip for older people. We ordered a whitefish melt with fries, huevos rancheros, and the prosciutto with pears and barrata flatbread pizza. Total with tip was $50 (no drinks). Owned by Harrison Ford's son, Ben Ford) so we hear.

Wait staff all wear retro western wear shirts. Outdoor patio dining also available. Prices seemed a little more expensive than they should have been (by about $3 each), but we had a nice lunch and we enjoyed our meals.

I came to this restaurant often. They have trendy new American food. It's a combination with some high end ingredients and some traditional ones. The menu is also very trendy. The Whole-pig-dinner is something I'd like to try one day. Harrison Ford's son is the chef and owner of the restaurant. He came out from time to time to shake hands with customers.

Great beers and bar atmosphere during happy hour. Dan is the best bartender in town. Pub burgers is great value. Desserts are always of incredible quality thanks to pastry chef Heather.
