One of the top bar burgers in LA. You have to order at the bar and then find a table where they bring the food. The runners are great. Bartenders spend too much time talking to each other....a few customers looks frustrated.

The Service: No server~ Have to order food & drink at the bar. Only 2 bartenders working that day.... take longer to place an order. The Food: GOOD!!! The burger is so juicy~ Lots of beer selections!! The Parking: Many other stores around... could be challenge during dinner time.

Met up with some longtime friends. I’d heard about their burgers, and had to try one. Verdict: One of the absolutely best-tasting burgers I have ever had. They won’t change anything; your only option is how you want it done. And don’t bother asking for ketchup. There isn’t any. However the aoli garlic sauce more than makes up for it.... More

To put it quite simply....the only thing worth going for is the Office Burger and the outdoor seating. That is it. Do not order the heirloom potato dish. Horrible. Fries are great. Burger and fries and beer and you will be happy. Average service at bar

Father's Office is a well known Craft beer and food bar located in LA. He has several rules which I don't mind 1. No Ketchup. I don't find this to be a problem as the aioli he serves is tasty 2. No substitutions. He wants you to enjoy what he thinks is perfect burger. It is so I don't want... More

Converted large bakery plant (Helms Bakery) to shops and restaurants. FREE valet parking. Large selection of beers on tap. Outstanding burgers and fries. No substitutions or changes allowed on your burger order. Also had a side of their mushrooms – very good. Not cheap.

When I visit my son in LA,since he works around the corner from FO,we usually end up there for a bite and a beer. Is it a little pretentious? Maybe but the food is very good (even without ketchup) and they have a great beer selection. This visit just had apps- fantastic mushrooms and fries. Chorizo balls very good, just... More

I like that they make a burger and you get it the way they make it…pick something off if you don't like it. However, it is probably off-putting to many. We were there early on Sunday night so it was a great, relaxed environment and the service was exceptional. The beer selections were amazing. I usually drink wine but they... More
