Omar is back, service is better than ever and even the food seems to have improved in flavor and presentation. Wine connoisseurs will be happy with the selection of fine vintages. The house red Sauvignon and Malbec blend is perfect. I ordered ceviche and it was fresh and tangy and a little spicy. It was followed by a perfectly grilled... More

I always enjoy spending an afternoon at La Aurora. The Food Factory is superb. I especially like the shrimp sandwich. Lots of good stuff to choose from, nice atmosphere, relaxed. A couple of hours to browse the wonderful galleries here is an added plus. There are a couple of other eating places at Aurora gallery, but this one is my... More

For many years we looked forward to our weekly dinner here. Fabulous waiters, quality food and welcoming atmosphere. We have tried it again on three separate occasions and can no longer go as this experience has gone as are the customers that used to keep this restaurant fun to be at. Last nights meal was the last until the owner... More

We have been to Food Factory ~ Aurora many times in the past 7 years. I have noticed a declined in the quality of the food. Last night we met friends there for a light dinner and had a rather unpleasant evening. There was a large group of Mexican friends who obviously were friends of the owner. They were drinking...

Don't judge this fine restaurant by its name. When we make our weekly evening out here it is like being in Europe. Linen table setting and flowers are clues to a lovely experience. Chalkboard menu with a wide variety of dishes for every taste. We love the salmon, parradilla (meat platter), best burger in town, and pad thai to name... More

For such a tiny restaurant, Food Factory has a rather varied menu. Food Factory fills a much needed niche for well prepared, nicely served eclectic meals. Whether you'd like a full three course meal or just a sandwich, Food Factory offers many choices. I have eaten here a number of times and I particularly recommend the Vietnamese casserole. While the... More

It doesn't seem right to review a restaurant based on one visit, but I'm doing it. My wife and I ate there, and we ordered the same thing. Pad Thai, and it was not bad at all. It was tasty. But no bona fide Thai restaurant would have served it. First off, Pad Thai is usually served generously. At the... More

Spent a couple of hours visiting La Aurora and then sat down for a late lunch at the Food Factory. Service was fast and efficient. The simple menu was on a board set up by the table. I had an excellent chicken sandwich with a delicious barbecue sauce and my friend had a chicken salad that she thought was super.
