    For newbies: this is a seat yourself scenario, walk up and order at the bar. Don't order your burger well done, and it's probably big enough for two. One of the best beer selections on the West Side.

    This heavenly creation made with dry-aged beef, arugula, Gruyère cheese and a bacon-onion compote is like eating French onion soup. Word to the wise: Dont ask for ketchup here; they’ll laugh you away. Read more

    The gourmet burger comes with blue cheese, arugula and bacon compote and the fries with aioli. We might object, except that our mouths are too full of potato-y goodness. Read more

    You come here for two things, great beer and The Office Burger, which is a piece of heaven between buns featuring caramelized onions, bacon, Gruyere, Maytag blue and arugula. Top 5 in my burger list!

    For late night eats, go to Father’s Office for its no-substitutions Office Burger, a dry-aged beef patty topped w/caramelized onions, arugula, gruyere & blue cheese (order until midnight on Fri+Sat). Read more

    Best burger in LA? I won't contest that. The Office burger falls into the specialty burger category. The caramelized onions are a strong flavor. Fries are seasoned and served with Aioli.

    Do what the internet says. Take seat, order at bar, go back to seat, food will be delivered to table, enjoy. Great burger (don't add or remove anything), tasty marrow. Garlic aioli for fries was good.

    Cheese plate goes excellent with their Panama Rum, and the current seasonal special of soft shell crabs is amazing! Go during the day, even on weekends, for a good seat!

    Order the Office Burger, inspired less by classic hamburgers and more by the flavors of French onion soup. The result remains one of the definitive high-end burgers. Read more

    The food is good, the cocktails are delicious, beer selection is really awesome. Insufferably hipster, though. And *any* deviation or request off menu (including cocktails) will be summarily rejected.

    The best thing food wise is the fathers office burger. You get a mix of sweet and savory from the meat and bacon molasses sauce.

    A more spacious version of the original. Arrive before 7 p.m. on Saturday night to avoid crowds. And of course, the beers and burgers are delicious.

    Get the Office burger. And if you're as annoyed by the seating situation as I am, stop by at 8:45 or 9 on a weekday. Lively enough but you don't have to hover for a booth.

    The roasted lamb taste very different from most. The meat is tender and taste similar to steak. This is lamb I most definitely recommend.

    There's only one burger on the menu. It's a great one, but it's $12.50 (so-so fries are an extra $2.50). Don't ask for ketchup. Order at the bar. Seating is first come, first serve.

    So beer is way amazing! But burger is overrated. Try Blue Palms in hollywood! or even the Kaliwild at 38 Degrees in Alhambra! Or the bucket in. Eagle rock!!! But hey parking is free so that is nice

    The Office Burger medium rare might be the best burger I've ever had. Combine it with a Trumer Pilsner and you're going to have an experience.

    First-timers take note: requesting ketchup is verboten, as it distracts from the beef’s flavor (and they don’t keep it around anyway). Read more

    Get the burger! They don't allow you to add, remove or substitute anything (a little pretentious, especially if you're allergic to something), but it's fantastic.

    Great food, but they should make a burger w/ soy or no cheese for those lactose intolerant folks who enjoy this place also.

    Father's Office Burger. They also serve a really tasty treat from the Helms bakery called a Strawberry Cheesecake Ice cream pop. It's unique and not too sweet.

    Not the most vegetarian-friendly, but there's generally a salad or two + fries + a special appetizer that works. But you come here for the large beer list. Much larger than the Santa Monica location.

    I NEVER make complaints but this one takes the cake. Just asked for the burger w/o cheese cuz of my allergies & instead of kindly helping they referred to their food as Picassos artwork. Epic fail.

    Love this place but be prepared to wait. You have to have stealth attack-like skills to snag a table when it's busy--like an animal circling its prey.

    Get the burger like everyone else says, but everything else on the menu is pretty damn good too. pick a favorite drink of choice and start socializing with friends or strangers if you like.

    Great selection of Belgian beer & tapas. Oh, and there sweet potato fries were perfectly crispy yet soft, with a side of awesome garlic aioli. Not bad...

    Awesome beer selection. Should have a sweet veggie burger, but they don't. Get the beet salad, mushrooms or Brussel sprouts. And be prepared to fight for space.

    Great for hanging out with friends after work, but can get crowded. Expect highish end food at decent prices for the tastiness you get. Fries come with a tasty aioli. We always get some to eat with

    Sang Yoon's "burger" is probably the seminal gourmet burger in America. Using house dry-aged beef, arugula, caramelized onions, & maytag blue cheese on an long sandwich bun, it's big enough to share.

    Probably my favorite FO. More spacious but still crowded even on a weeknight. Love the outdoor seating though!
