About the restaurant
1913 Restaurant & Bar is no ordinary restaurant. Named for the founding year of the City of Hope, 1913 is a place where every plate is thoughtfully curated to nourish one’s body, heart, spirit, and soul. Executive Chef Christian Eggerling and his diverse team of culinary talent make healthy food fun, sometimes fancy (because we all deserve it), but never boring. Fresh wild-caught seafood, locally sourced meat, garden-harvested vegetables, decadent desserts, curated wine list and craft cocktail program make 1913 the ideal destination for any occasion. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and private events can be experienced in our modern and elegant restaurant or outside on the patio with a picture-perfect view of the local foothill mountains. Whether you are a team member, local or visitor to our historic campus - our commitment to locally farmed, sustainability-focused food is not just a pledge, it is a promise.

Ambience was out of the park between the decor and views. Our server was so sweet. She heard it was my son’s birthday and gave us a slice of cake to go since she knew we needed to head out. Downstairs they also gave him a little teddy bear. They have service at the forefront here. And of course, the most important part - food was on point. The crispy rice spicy tuna special was our fave. Fries were too notch. Cocktails also top notch. I was surprised it wasn’t busier here - everything was 10/10. Pricey though! 😎

Chin Chin is an old standby, with modern twist on traditional "American-Style" Cantonese. We've moved into the area and thought we'd try the Brentwood location (my go-to for years has been at Sunset Plaza). As expected, the food was delicious - we weren't super adventurous but enjoyed the Chicken with grilled veggies (yum!), orange chicken (flavorful and meaty with very light breading), crispy, plump potstickers and Yank Chow fried rice, which is simple and light with tiny shrimp, peas, carrots, egg and a kind of bland bbq pork. They offer wine, beer and a variety of sakes so we decided to split a hot traditional sake, which started us off well. Easy breezy location, comfortable if uninspired decor and good service - I was surprised it was so quiet on a Friday night. I would definitely recommend it for a casual but tasty dinner or lunch.

Gyu-Kaku always serves good food but the service is not that excellent. Not sure if this location is under staffed.
