A word from Rush Street
Chicago's rowdy Rush Street comes to Culver City in the form of a restaurant, bar and lounge. Executive chef Dave Northrup will focus on "bar-centric" dishes like buffalo chicken dumplings with blue cheese and fried shallot dressing, pulled barbecue pork sliders and Kobe pigs-in-a-blanket, plus grilled New Zealand lamb racks and brick oven-cooked pizzas.

    I used to love this place. I don't know why it's gone downhill, but the cocktails were basically a fruit punch with no alcohol. The food was just mediocre. Whereas I frequented this place I probably won't go back :(

    My wife works in Culver City, walking distance from Rush Street, so we've eaten here a couple times. We liked it enough the first time to come back but were not as happy on our second visit. The entire problem centered around the service; I don't know what was going on (maybe they were training some new people) but our server was extremely poor. After we were seated, it took close to 10 minutes for our server to come to our table. By then, we simply ordered then. The food and drinks arrived in reasonable time but when it came time to pay, we had to wait again. Not a horrible experience but not the best. I still tipped the guy 16% (which is low for me). I will go back but I won't rush.

    I've been to this place 4-5 times before, and the last two times it was just terrible--first time, I thought I caught a chef on a bad night--happens to all places, but second time, I was really upset--hummus and spinach dip tasted runny and as if prev. frozen, ahi burger was 80% bread 12% fish and then a little avocado, drinks were weak and their well specials gave half of our party a headache the next day

    Very disappointed. The service was slow and very unattentative. The chicken was overpriced for the cost. $18 for a very small piece of chicken. There were times we couldnt find our waitress when we just wanted our water glasses filled. Would not recommend and not go back there.. Dont waste your time or money.

    We returned to Rush for DineLA. For $25 we were not expecting much. It was amazing. Great selection, we tried all 3 appetizers, salad, mac and cheese and soup. By far the Mac and Cheese was top rated by our table, although the others were excellent as well. We each had a different main course. The Salmon and Chicken were excellent, cooked exactly as expected, perfect seasoning and right temperature. If we were not full enough dessert, Key Lime Pie, Sticky Pudding and Cheese cake, were all so good we could not pick a favorite. The service was excellent, there when you needed but not hovering. Loved it.

    Asked for Calamari extra crispy, it came crispy and topped with cheese. One of the best I 've had. Also ordered flat bread for the first time and it was very tasty. The brick chicken was very good, but it tasted different from previous times. I remember a garlicky taste, this time very strong mustard taste. it was very tasty though!!

    The menu has changed. The previous Hummus plate was great. It had a variety of hummus, great almonds and olives. The new one on the menu was very disappointing. The hummus was ok. But now it is just a bowl of hummus with pita bread, boring. Please bring back the hummus plate. My party agreed we like the old one better. We are regular customers. Maybe its time to change the booths to something more interesting instead plain blk. Also the cushions in the booths could be more supportive. But as always love your happy hour drinks and prices, tried the Tavern would not go back too expensive, lousy happy hour!!

    Met my daughter here for dinner last night. The food was delicious. The service was professional and friendly. And the ambiance was trendy and laid back. The noise level was lively, but not off putting. We didn't have to lean in or shout to hold a conversation. Overall I enjoyed Rush, and I'd definitely dine there again. By the way, the toffee pudding is to die for.

    Food was very good. Service was outstanding. Noise level was overbearing. We were there for a special occasion and while our server went above and beyond to make it special, the enjoyment factor was diminished by the fact that a large, boisterous crowd of 12 imbibing diners was seated next to our quiet corner table. Even though I was sitting less than a foot from my companion, it was impossible to carry on a conversation. Near the end of our lunch, I went to the restroom in the back of the building and I could hear them yelling at each other from in there! Management should have done something to mitigate the situation, like seating the loud partying crowd upstairs, away from the other diners.

    The bar areas are both upstairs and down are well managed. The food was very good, very trendy and very healthy. The service both at bar and at my table was very good the servers where very well trained and knowledgeable about the menu. The only issue I had was the reception area, this seemed to be an area of opportunity.

    The restaurant for us was too noisy. We also felt the menu was limited so we probably will not return, but if we were 30 years younger, I believe we would have a different response. I will say that I like the way Open Table works. Our table was ready when we arrived and they seated us promptly.

    We had a good time but we thought the noise level was a bit too loud. The server was fantastic-we received the wrong pizza for my husband and when we asked about it, she immediately saw that we received the wrong one and had a new order placed immediately and we received it in a timely fashion. Little pricey so we will visit only on special occasions but we did have a good time.

    We enjoyed this restaurant, as we were there to see a game. We had called ahead, and they saved a booth for us that allowed all of us to face the TV's. Very much appreciated. The food was fine, not notable, but plentiful and enjoyable. Service was fine. If we weren't there to see a game, the ambiance would be too noisy and not our style.

    The ambiance is a great fit for a first date. It is far from a dive but not overly pretentious. It's comfortable but upscale enough to impress. Most importantly, it doesn't distract from the main focus... the date. The food was amazing. I had been there previously and discounted the food assuming that lounge, outdoor patio and extensive bar were the main draws. It turns out the food was even better! The best part was that we could enjoy our meal and afterwards, change the scene without even leaving. A short walk upstairs provides a nice open lounge area complete with a bar and DJ. But my favorite is a few more steps away to the outdoor patio. We relaxed, enjoyed some drinks, and felt completely comfortable the whole time. I'll be back!
