It was nice to find a non-pretentious, relatively inexpensive restaurant, with food on this level.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPretty consistentYou will not be disappointed at this delightful neighborhood restaurant. The food is delicious and consistent. I have eaten there a few times as it is not close to where I live. I find whatever I order is very good. The pastry chef is a miracle! His breads and deserts are consistently delicious.

We shared flan with mushrooms, duck rillettes, rabbit, short ribs, Moroccan lamb, rhubarb and blueberry cobbler, donuts with custard and strawberry sauce. Also loved the house-cured salmon on shaved fennel that was complementary and truly enjoyed that as well. Can become my next favorite restaurant that we go to when we are in LA.

I'd like to go back soon to try more dishes and possibly edit my review.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSmall plates, starters andSmall plates, starters and cocktails were great.. Entrees were not so great. The shortrub entree was entirely fatty and wrapped in a tasteless pastry. The seabass was overwhelmed with fennel and flavorless ontop of dried beans.
Next time, no entrees. Everything else was great.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply great foodVery good food... The garlic soup was superb and unlike other restaurants it is served nice and hot and not tepid warm. We can't wait to go back.

Stand outs were the chicken salad, turkey sandwich and the chocolate caramel tart. Everything was fresh and service was warm and friendly.

Upscale,Muddy Leek is very good. Upscale, new american cuisine. A solid menu that changes a bit, plus a lot of seasonal specials with the freshest ingredients. Best in show menu items: short ribs, arugula salad, brocollini with sundried tomatoes and shrimp n grits, which is really a creamy luscious polenta. Prices are reasonable for the quality of food you get, but small plates are small.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA big surpriseThis new restaurant was a most pleasant experience, everyone was friendly and helpful. The bread and deserts are special and our salads were fresh and delicious .3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMuddy Leek RocksFood quality was exceptional- everything is organic and fresh. Interesting dishes with imaginative spices. The artichokes with mint and garlic knocked our socks off. Homemade sodas were to die for. All dishes were simple yet imaginative.The chocolate molten dessert was off the charts. Service staff was really helpful friendly and swift. This place is a gem.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Culver City GemI read amazing reviews of Muddy Leek doing some DineLA research and was dying to try it. It did not disappoint. My friend and I ended up sharing one DineLA 4-course meal and adding some extra small bite items and everything was great. We had the eggs with chanterelles which was a good, unique dish. The squab tacos were truly to die for – my first time having squab and it was delicious! We also had the beet salad, cauliflower, and mushroom risotto – all were very good. We had the venison for our main course and it was unbelievably delicious! The dessert was good, but it was a panna cotta and it wasn’t set, so it wasn’t perfect, but the flavors were all there, so we licked the bowl. The food was truly spectacular.1/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
