Great for Sunday Brunch!
Great brunch! I had the Eggs Benedict with crab cakes, and it was delicious. The Bloody Mary garnish bar is a great addition at brunch.

Food was outstanding and very unique. The tomato pie was excellent, the spaghetti with meat sauce exquisite and the bread pudding was beyond delicious. We will definitely be back!

Love that the menu rotates seasonally! The food was great this season but looking forward to see what they come up with for next season. Great for a night out with the girls or for date night.

We are regulars! It's the best place in Rock Hill. Get the uptown feel, without the price tag. Culina has a great mix of fresh, mouthwatering dishes and quenching beverages. Everything on their menu is great!

Rock Hill's Best Restaurant
After several friends' recommendations I booked a reservation at Culina. Our waitress was really cool and knowledgeable. The food was outstanding especially when you put it in context the the run of the mill food available in Rock Hill. Normally we would have to travel to Charlotte to experience great tapas style dinner and now it's in our back yard.

Wow, wow, wow!
I was looking for somewhere different to take my wife for mother's day and found Culina thanks to Open Table. The reviews definitely helped finalize my decision and now I'm going to add my own.
The food was outstanding. The menu was really interesting and creative. It was hard to decide what to order because everything sounded amazing. My wife, my daughter, and I all ordered the Blueberry Pie Bread French Toast. O.M.G.!! Absolutely incredible. It was coated with frosted flakes and garnished with blueberries and a strawberry on top of a dollop of whipped cream. We will be back to try some of the other items for sure.
The setting was dim and romantic, even at 10am! Great spot for foodies. I highly recommend Culina. We had a great experience

No need to drive to Charlotte!
Get the 5 o'clock cocktail to start. Then the tomato pie and sweet potato fries. If you are lucky enough to have the cheer wine fried chicken, you will visit this local GEM every weekend.

Love this neighborhood gem. My wife and I eat at Culina whenever we can. We love the food, the atmoshere and the staff. Makes a great martini, has a diverse wine selection and super delicious food. Last time my wife and I shared the cheese tray and each had the scallops; it was divine. We are so thankful to have a restuarant of this caliber right here in our neighborhood.

Close and Classy
Tomoto pie was great! Pork sliders with the right kick in them. Scallops were my favorite.

Phenomenal food to share
Don't have normal "single dishes." They have cold dishes/salads to be shared as a sort of appetizer between 2 people as a small start & their "main dishes" are called "share pates" with 2, 3, or more of the item meant to be shared. Great way for people who LOVE good food to dine. Enough to fill you up without overloading you. My wife & I had two share plates & a cold plate & were both satisfied. Had we not gotten a bottle of wine, our bill would have only been in the low $40 range. Choices are eclectic & delicious. Presentation is attractive & appetizing. Service is attentive without being cloying. My only complaint was that they were out of the first 2 bottles of wine we tried to order & we had to go with our 3rd choice.

Quiet and romantic
On our most recent visit, the place was almost empty. We enjoyed the food and the service was great. The chef even sent out a little something for us to celebrate our anniversary.

Fun Food Adventure !
Both visits to date have been wonderful with creative choices and exceptional presention. Half-off wine night was a nice surprise as well.

Best in RH
This is the best restaurant in RH, and perhaps the best ever. The food rivals
that of any major city. Presentation and taste, superb. Wine list
needs work but other rhan that, this is a great place to eat.

Rock Hill finest
We have needed a restaurant like Culina for a long time in Rock Hill. Food is better with each visit. Love sharing good food and times with friends at Culina.

We had a group of five for my wife's birthday and everything was perfect, the service was very attentive and the food was exceptional.

Culina - almost perfect evening
Our first visit to Culina in Rock Hill was more than a pleasant surprise. I can not say enough good about the food. Chef Michael has won us over. (as I am a former executive chef myself, I am highly critical when it comes to the dining experience)
He has created a small but elegant menu that blends taste, texture, presentation, and timing almost perfectly. The smaller portions are just the right size for 2 to share X2 as starters. Tomato Pie, and Crab cakes - great!. The larger portions were also sized right to share. 2 to split for the two of us. No leftovers, but satisfying portions. Redfish with fennel and watercress = A+ , Crawfish Mac & Cheese was a close second. Dessert was great as well. Can't wait to return!!

lunch at Culina's
My husband and I had lunch this past Friday at Culina's. From the time we entered the restaurant, we were treated cordially by the hostess and waiter. The menu was so appealing that it was hard for us to decide on a choice. We were pleasantly surprised with our lunch of a roast beef sandwich with cheddar and carmelized onions and crab cake sliders. The sides of cole slaw and sweet potato french fries were excellent as well. Our only regret was that we were too full to order dessert, but there's always next time.....

What a surprise!
This was the absolute PEFECT place to take an overnight guest to Sunday brunch after church. It was inviting, friendly and the food was eclectic and delicious! The crab benedict, veggie benedict, and chicken and waffles were incredible!
We will be back SOON for dinner and definitely will return for brunch!

We were traveling to Hilton Head Island for vacation from WV. We wanted to drive halfway & stay all night. While in the car, I was looking for restaurants in Charlotte when Culina popped up. We decided to drive on to Rock Hill, SC just to try the restaurant based on Open Table reviews. We are so happy that we made that decision!
We weren't familiar with how to enjoy the "comfort" food. Our waitress was very patient in explaining that you can buy a few items because the food is all meant to share. The tomato pie was great! We ordered the Hanger Skewer and the Blood Orange Redfish. My boyfriend fell in love with the pickled peppers on the skewer plate! Chef Michael topped it off with a warm, personal visit to our table. Perfect!

Gem in Rock Hill
Culina is a great culinary find in Rock Hill. Chef-owned, menu suited to the season, nothing ordinary, wonderful cocktails. Try their Supper Club. Amazing food and drink. You'll always experience something new!

Beautiful Restaurant --
My only disappointment was I do not eat seafood and I would say 90-95% of all entrees were seafood base. Be great to diversify menu a little. . A little pricey but great date night
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
We've been five times in the past two months, and we've enjoyed it every time. I'm ready for an expanded menu or more seasonal specials. To anyone looking for an independent proprietor serving stellar cuisine, this is the place to go. Culina has become our "go to" place when we want the best meal to be had in the area.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
My friends and I love Culina. We have been there for dinner and Sunday brunch. The chef is creative and the food is outstanding. Sunday brunch includes a Bloody Mary bar or bottomless Mimosas. The service is always good and we are always comfortable to relax to enjoy a glass of wine and talk after our meal. This restaurant is a gem!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fresh and creative
What a nice surprise to find this great restaurant in Rock Hill! Fresh ingredients and creative dishes, at the right price. We had a family dinner after a Winthrop soccer game. Everybody loved it, from the dieting mom to the hungry teens. Loved the poached pear salad, the sweet potatoes fries, and the desserts. Great service as well. We'll visit again when in Rock Hill.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a great find in the York County area, Rock Hill, SC. The atmosphere was fun and relaxing and the food was fantastic. The Smoked Crawfish Mac-n-Cheese rivals Capital Grill's Lobster Mac-n-Cheese. The Executive Chef uses local ingredients and all dishes are made fresh. It has a Tapas theme for the menu. Great Cocktail choices, try the Moscow Mule if you like Mojitos.
Will be taking friends next time!

Rock Hill's Unique "Little Gem"
The atmosphere is inviting...the menu is fresh...the food presentation and quality were exceptional! The dinner menu's pricing ($8-16) was extremely reasonable, given the portion size and ingredients. The service was "five star" all the way. The Proprietor/Chef is young, talented, and has obviously found his niche in the restaurant industry. Culina Modern Comfort Food opened Thanksgiving of 2012; Rock Hill, and surrounding areas, needs to support this venue to insure its longevity and success. It is a short drive from the Lake Wylie area. You MUST give this "Little Gem" a try!

Another great dinner and evening
I always enjoy meeting my friends at Culina. The food is excellent and the service is very good. We like to linger after our meal and talk and we never feel rushed. Culina is a fantastic addition to the Rock Hill restaurant scene - very few other restaurants can compare.

Lucky to have!
Culinas is wonderful from the moment you are greeted at the door throughout your entire dining experience. Their food is fresh, innovative and to be savored. You can share small plates if you choose or not. The scallops are a must have and another favorite is the caramel apple salad. They chage the items on the menu so it's always interesting. We are so lucky to have this quality restaurant in our community.
