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.

    Rush Street is a mildly upscale gastropub, with a sports tv emphasis. Great for going with a group of buddies for burgers, fries (esp truffle fries) or mac & cheese while watching whoever's playing that day. Service is good. Don't expect to be able to have intimate conversations though - this place is bustling and noisy.

    My boyfriend and I try to have at least 1 date night per week and we are always looking for new places to try. I looked on Open Table for Culver City and found Rush street and decided to try it. I booked reservations for 7:15 and we barely got there on time because we had trouble finding it. When we got there we were greeted by the hostess and taken to our table. The service was great, the atmosphere was perfect for us after a long, hard day at work. The bar scene was great and high energy like our waitress. The food we ordered came out quickly and was very good. I would love to go back just to hang out at the bar and have a couple of drinks and appetizers!

    This is a great place to go if you want to sit outside and people watch. The food is good and the bartender serves a good drink. Do not go here if you want a quiet meal. It is a sports bar on the inside. Very very loud and noisy and you cannot carry on a conversation.there are many Tv's on at the same time and it is often very crowded.

    The food and ambiance were great. My only complaint was that some of the items were way overpriced. However, I think most people stick to the burgers which aren't that expensive. Great place overall

    The service was incredible for our group of 7 ladies. They seated us quickly and let us take our time enjoy our meal and chatting even though they were quite busy at lunch. The food was delicious, no complaints. I had the shrimp and lobster roll with the Caesar salad and it was delicious! The salted caramel pudding was good too.

    this is a bear's bar but lots of other teams' fans show up so it's nice. bottomless mimosas are a great way to start the day. they changed up their menu a bit so there are some new items. i stuck with an old faithful breakfast burrito and it was still tasty. manager was super nice and came around a couple times. our server was pretty attentive too and we were a somewhat difficult big group. thanks for a nice morning~

    You could do worse than Rush Street for a quick bite, or drinks and appies with a group of friends. But don't go expecting a "dining experience": this is a bar which serves food, and that is the order of priorities. Comfy banquettes need back cushions to get patrons positioned properly for dining (the center column which supports the table makes it impossible to get the table close enough to sit against the back of the banquette while eating). Appetizers are yummy and portions are impressive - try one or more of the flatbreads to share. Entrées are the let-down here: a higher level of expertise is needed from the kitchen in order to make the comfort food selections actually comforting and appetizing. Very friendly, accommodating staff.

    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.
