Totally blown away by their new revised lunch menu and buffet.
An absolute delightful lunch buffet that is fresh, well balanced, tasty and fairly healthy if you skip the yummy desserts! Loved it! My new to go place.

Outstanding never-ending Brunch in LA! A sampling of almost everything from Omelettes, fresh tortilla tacos, Pizza, sushi , many salads, fish, chicken, roast beef, ribs pot stickers, and more. The desserts are not their forte but there is a huge variety.

Thanksgiving Buffet was, as always, the best I've ever had. I will say their breakfast offerings are sooo much better than when they switch over to "lunch" foods. I'd just keep the Belgian waffles and crab cakes all day long instead.

Restaurant was nice inside. Outside patio area wasn't as impressive. Stacked chairs that appeared to be for some event. Food had too much olive oil for every dish. Lamb dish was too dry and covered in butter. Chicken dish was average and not impressive at all. Customer service was outstanding.

This is a beautiful space and restaurant. Multiple spaces to dine or hang out in a relaxed bar fashion. The service was perfect. The food was fabulous. We got a boar pasta and a pounded veal chop with arugula salad. All food was delightful. Service was great!
My only negative comment on the entire experience is that when a waiter tells customers about specials, they should mention the price!

Deciding to sit outside was simply the best decision. We felt like we were on vacation during a business lunch. We had the buffet, which was delicious. We decided to order a pizza straight out of the oven, and it was literally the best pizza that I have ever eaten -- warm, fluffy and delicious crust. Yum.

I got there too late but they accepted me anyways which was very nice. BUT the meal was supposed to come with fruit but didn’t. BUT it was piled high with delicious meat. Maybe I actually more value. I just wanted fruit though. Overall very nice.

The luncheon buffet is absolutely wonderful! My guest from Chicago and I tasted all the salads and they were superb. The salmon was perfectly cooked and the charcuterie were a tasty addition to the salads and blended perfectly. The chicken was juicy but the roast beef was practically raw--so raw that I couldn't cut it with a steak knife.
My panna cotta with berries was absolutely scrumptious. Culina never disappoints.

Beautiful outdoor terrasse to dine in Beverly Hills.
This italian restaurant has great food which come at a cost.

We had a very nice Buratta to start and some octopus salad (exquisite), followed by some boar pasta (one of my favorite dishes and well executed) and a risotto of asparagus (delicious).

Overall a very nice evening in a luxurious hotel (Four Seasons)

Celebrated my birthday at Culina last week and had a wonderful dining experience. The beef tenderloin carpaccio and wild boar pappardelle were exceptional. Our service was excellent and they even brought us complimentary champagne and chocolate cake which was a very nice gesture. We will definitely be back next time we are in LA!
