This place is really clean and easy going but I have had mixed experience with service
The servers do not know much about beer
The stuff they brew is decent enough I like the DIPA but do not get growler fills because so expensive I feel like $20+ for just the fill is too much
I have also had really rude bartenders and one time filled a growler and they tried to charge me too much and had to argue that I want the price listed on the board
The food is decent but once again pricey
i think this place caters to an older crowd who is not worried about overpaying I would rather frequent other spots more friendly to beer geeks

This is my favorite spot. Beer is always good, and the food is a perfect pairing. Love the heavy fats available on the menu and perfect beers to cut them with. Always have a great time here, and I often bring big groups. Do not miss the burger or the sliders. Really appreciate their sourcing of the meats they get. I think the Tripel is their best beer, but, love that they're always up to something unique as well.

Vibe: This brewery is conveniently located about two blocks away from an interchange on the Ventura Freeway. They have an indoor seating area and bar with views of the brewery's fermenting tanks and an outdoor deck area that overlooks the Santa Monica Mountains.

Quality: Beers were served at the proper temperature using a variety of glassware types.

Service: I went there on a weekday for a late lunch and service was very quick. Our waitress was very friendly and there were constantly wait staff circling around the seating areas.

Selection: The place had 16 total taps, with 13 being their own beers and the remainder being guest beers from other breweries. Flights were available for up to eight beers at a time; the samples came in five ounce glasses and prices varied by beer.

Food: I tried a pork belly BLT sandwich on country bread and really enjoyed it. The food was of high quality and had a very good presentation on the plates.

Impressed by the quality and selection of brews here. Bartenders are very helpful with selection and tasting. Outside service is slightly lacking knowledge, but overall this place still rates outstanding and I am a repeat patron. Very pleasant relaxing outdoor patio with tables and a few lounge chairs, with a misting system to keep it cool during warm days. You might want to stay inside during those 90+ degree days. Other patrons tend to agree this is a favorite local place in comparison to nearby competitors. I'm a big fan of their IPAs and guest brews which change frequently. Personal favorites so far include Blue-Belly Barleywine, Cataclysm IPA, Blind Ambition. Growlers are available "to go" with a deposit. Happy Hour begins at 3pm.

Food menu is nice, somewhat upscale, but not complicated, with sufficient choices for bar food and dinner entrees. Sweet potato fries with aioli and creme fraiche dips are a favorite, or the pretzel served with gourmet cheese dip, if you want something light. Haven't had the opportunity for dinner, as I'm usually quite filled up by the ale and appetizer!

Definitely will be continue to visit this place.

AWESOME
I've visited over 70 breweries in california and besides Stone, this is the best beer and food quality in one place that I've come across.
The belgian dark and the double ipa were outstanding and the picture city porter was really tasty and coffee/chocalte work perfectly.
So many beers are similar and not memorable but everything we tried at Ladyface was interesting and flavorful. After tasting each one, you look at each other and say "wow, that's really different".
Great looking bar on the inside, nice seating outside.
Food is higher quality than you get at most restaurants so much better than you get at most pubs. My wife had the chicken sandwich which was awesome and I've had their burgers and the fish & chips which are both great.
Nothing but great things to say about Ladyface.

Ladyface is my new favorite watering hole. I've been to a number of breweries, plenty of eateries, and plenty of places that are craft beer enthusiast, and Ladyface puts them all to shame. The beers are incredible and drinkable even for non-craft beer enthusiasts. I went with a group of 12 for my birthday, and we had a mixture of serious craft beer snobs mixed with people who enjoy craft beer but don't take it too seriously or consider it a hobby, and even a couple people who only drink the forbidden 'fizzy-yellow-beer.' Nobody in our group was disappointed in the (multiple) beers they had.

The food selection is excellent; I enjoyed both the mac and cheese (one of the best renditions of this classic comfort food I've ever had) and the pulled pork sliders with pommes frites. The pork sliders were tender, juicy, and incredibly flavorful. Sweet, savory, and just delicious. The only reason I didn't rate the food a perfect 5 is because I usually have high expectations with french fries, and these were just good fries (I know, I'm splitting hairs). One of our group ordered the pommes frites with harissa seasoning and blue cheese dipping sauce: that was an incredible combination which took the french fries from just "good" to "perfect."

The service was exceptional. Even with a big group, our waitress was attentive, knowledgeable, friendly, and overall just excellent. She became the honorary 13th member of our evening.

Speaking of service, I called two weeks prior to the visit to make a reservation for 12 people. When we arrived, even though they had 'lost' our reservation, they went out of their way to rearrange tables in order to accommodate us and we were seated immediately. Most restaurants would have told us to wait an hour and been unhelpful.

Prices are great. Most people in Los Angeles are probably used to what I call the Father's Office standard: paying $12-$15 for a burger and fries, and then $8 or $9 for a beer, which turns into quite the expensive night. Ladyface bucks the trend set by F.O. and Stout Burger and Umami and other popular eateries by offering lots of cheap food and cheap beer. $2 tasters, $5 glasses, and affordable growlers or pitchers. The food is especially cheap if you go for happy hour - perhaps the best deal in all of LA.

Ladyface was genuine, unique, delicious, fun, and - best of all - it was affordable.
