This is a hot spot. It deserves its reputation because the food is not only creative but also because the dishes are very well executed. The service is good too, but unfortunately, the hostess at the reception is extremely rude and unpleasant. The contrast between...More

I am from New York so my idea of a great Italian meal is Carmine's with spaghetti and veal with lemon. The Factory Kitchen is not that - no spaghetti in sight. It's like the calculus of Italian food instead of simple addition (e.g., Uovo...More

The food from a The Factory Kitchen was very memorable. Our bill for four people was almost $400 because we ordered so much food and wine. While I can't remember the names of the dishes, all were delicious. I would certainly go back and enjoy...More

This is no ordinary Italian restaurant. I visited for dinner in a party of four and was treated to some of the finest Italian cuisine that I have ever experienced. You don’t see the usual Italian staple dishes on the menu here - Angelo and...More

We had a large family dinner here. It was very good. Their pasta is freshly made on the spot, so their fresh pasta dishes were great. Both the pesto and the black truffle pasta dishes were terrific. The porchetta was good, but not great. Overall...More

This isn't a review about food, it's about service, maybe a little about greed, a lot of short-sightedness and a lot about hooey. Long story short we were 16 minutes late for one of the hottest tickets in LA (well tier two). Now totally our...More

Been here a few times before. Food is good and so is the service. We had the kale salad which was great, the turkey meatloaf which was very tasty and the mixed greens with the dates which was lacking flavor and had maybe 1/2 a...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
