Visited on February 3rd, 2010 at opening time (2:00pm).

The decor of this place (which apparently used to be a Chuy's mexican place) is very nice: turn of the century wainscotting around the walls, only two televisions in evidence (two too many, but at least it's only two), tasteful and eye-catching Art Nouveau posters. The theme of the place is Belgian and French inspired cuisine and the decor complements it well.

The quality of the food and beer is beyond reproach: no corners cut in ingredients or preparation.

The wait staff is friendly, young, attentive and attractive. Our waitress even knew a thing or two about beer, which is always a plus! One of the owners stopped by to chat for a moment, as did a lady I presumed was the manager and Dave the brewmaster.

The guest taps were well-chosen and plentiful enough that I couldn't have tried everything in one visit. What more can you ask for? I had two of the three house brews: the tripel was very good and the IPA... well, I liked the tripel.

My friend and I ordered the Pommes Frites - classic Belgian fries seasoned with sea salt and accompanied by an aoli dip. They were great when warm, but quickly turned soggy and cold. Still, we finished them all. Yes, they tasted that good.

For my entree, I had the sausage plate. Served with three interesting mustards and pretzel bread, it was a diverse and satisfying taste adventure.

My friend ordered the burger with blue cheese on a standard white bread bun. He declared it very good.

For dessert, we each had an obscenely large creme brulee redolent of rum and vanilla bean. Delicious.

Be warned, however: the meal above (including four beers between the two of us and a gratuity) was $75.00. Ladyface is not cheap.

I will make it a point to stop in as often as is convenient. It is a bit out of the way for me, but is worth a visit for anyone who treasures great food paired with great beer.

Beers weren't all that great and service was very, very slow even though they weren't very busy. The theme is unique but it didn't really feel like a brewery

One of the nicest breweries I have been too. Very impressed with the ambiance. A nice restaurant, a little pricey, but staff still very knowledgable of their beers which makes a good brewery to me. Glad I stopped in coming home from Santa Barbara to l.A. Great food, too!!
