Reviews for Father's Office


Their burger is a classic. There's two types of cheese, a soft brioche bun and the beers on tap are great.


Impressive beer selection and one of LA's best burger. Just bring your own ketchup because they're weird about that.


Great burger with a phenomenal beer selection. It guest quite crowded so get there early for a seat. Fun lively atmosphere.

You can't add or take out anything on the burger but trust me, you'll think it's delicious! Oh and they don't serve ketchup with your fries.


Bartenders know their beers. FO burger is one of the best in LA. Also get Barbacoa. Share plates and a bottle of "the real good shi**"

I feel like Father's Office is trying to do something special and present a visionary burger experience, but I just can't get with their choices. Bleu cheese is an intense and polarizing ingredient, and to put that on a no-substitutions burger is like flipping the bird to a large portion of eaters. Couple that with the "good luck trying to order a beer at the bar if you're not a regular" attitude, and I say pass on this place.

A unique take on the hamburger that was very good and wide selection of beer. However, don't understand why they make you go to the bar to order your food and drinks. How about you hire some waiters/waitresses?

GREAT BURGER, limited service. – Hey if you can deal with rude staff, the do! Great burger. I get it there overloaded, it was pretty crowded in there, so service was to be expected (low)... but if you want to try one of LA's Best (unique) burgers take a shot and belly up!

Laissez-faire twinne – Santa Monica's Father's Office is a beautiful spark in the protein adverse world of west LA. Cramped quarters with beautiful food. Culver City's recent expansion has a great facility, reminiscent of the recent Bigfoot West in woody decor and bar choices. But the food feels like cheating. I have asked the bussers (since there are no waiters), and I swear they lied to me when they told me the burgers, as well as the sweet potato fries weren't frozen or processed. When I asked the bartender, he became unruly like no service industry representative should. Bottom line: A beautiful lodge does not make a great restaurant automatically.

This restaurant sucks – Was hoping that I could mark a zero for the grade.

If you want stuck up & rude "as all get out" waiters and waitresses-and pathetically over priced food-then by all means-run right over to this place.

What a disaster!

Oh and do not let me forget that they are a Bar (Bar= Establishment or area that serves alcoholic beverages)


And no apologies either.

I will never go back and I will tell all of my friends (and even enemies) not to spend their money at this locale!!!

I have to re-comment on the servers-they truly suck.

Also, it's aburger restaurant and they do not even have ketchup!!!

I LOVE what another review writer posted: "Burgers with a side of arrogance!"

That is a perfect description of this place!

For the first time in many many years I did not give a tip.

Father's Office is a once a week place for me now – I hope you decide to visit this place with a friend or at least bring a clone of yourself because the crowds get crazy! My suggestion would be to grab a table as soon as you come in because its self seating at this place. We decided to order our food and drinks at the bar first which could have been disastrous and meant that we would eat on the floor. Lucky for me I brought a bully friend who fought her way to the very last table outside!

They have a tantalizingly long wall full of beautiful beers. My friend ordered us the Jolly Roger which comes in a bottle big enough to share. It was one of the most satisfying beers I've had in quite awhile. All three of us ordered burgers, which my friend who ordered the beer said they will not substitute the toppings. You get it the way it is or don't buy one. I'm ok with that because I don't mind picking stuff off. Lucky for me I didn't need to pick a single thing off! It tasted divine and I would be more then happy to stop by this place again when I'm in the area.

The only downfall to Father's Office are the bathrooms. They are labeled "Sons" and 'Daughters" which is cute, but the sinks to wash your hands are on the outside of the bathroom doors. I don't know about you, but I'm positive they have the germiest doorknobs on the planet with this layout. I'll be bringing a napkin with me next time if I've had one too many beers.

Worst Service Ever (and the food's no good either) – If you are thinking of going to Fathers Office for food or drink -- think again! The food has to be ordered their way (even if you are alergic to cheese or don't like it), they make you order at the counter and then deliver it to you in a basket. There are no condiments allowed because the chef's ego does not allow them. If try to suggest anything out of their box, you will be rudely told no. Who do they think they are? There are too many good restaurants around to waste your time and money on this place. (I would give them less than one star, but the software doesn't allow it.
