Two Office Burgers and two drinks: 1) Scottish Beer; 2) Pear Cider. One order of frites. The fries are the shoestring style, nicely seasoned, served with aioli (no ketchup: I think it's considered gauche here), The fries are unsatisfying if you like the traditional style...More

My daughter and her boyfriend just moved into the neighborhood and my son, his girlfriend, my husband, and I helped them move into their new place. Once we finished, we went to this establishment for lunch. Big beer selection, but besides that, not much else...More

Very good beer selection, tasty food. The staff were friendly. However, this place is unorthodox in some ways. First, the menu has small plates and only four actual entrees. We found the selection limited. Second, you have to go to the bar to order your...More

I've always wanted to eat at Father's Office but have never had the chance until a recent trip to LA. I had always imagined it as a burger place because that's what everyone talks about so I was surprised so see so many other items...More

I don't even begin to know where to start. The servers here are beyond rude. And the policies to not accommodate for food allergies (ie not being able to eat blue cheese) when the only burger you serve has blue cheese is kind of RIDICULOUS....More

This is a very popular place, with tables inside and outside on a nice porch area. It could use more tables, as it is VERY popular. It has an amazing assortment of beers / ciders on tap...have never seen such a large array of taps...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Can you explain your policy of not honoring any requests to omit ingredients? I asked for no bacon on the burger and was told the bacon is only in the jam, so I asked to omit the jam and this request was refused. The drink I ordered came in a martini glass, and I asked foot on the rocks.....again, this request was refused? No like I was asking to rewrite your menu, but these seemed like simple, minor requests. Guess you don't care about your customers.....?
