Food and service great. Was hoping to enjoy a nice , relaxing lunch with a friend but hard but they allow multiple guests to take virtual meetings w their laptops there and not use their headsets. Kind if disrupted the vibe for me.

I picked this place to celebrate Mother’s Day. The food was great but the service was a joke. I guess we weren’t valuable customers because of the way we “looked”! They were giving out cookies for Mother’s Day and well I’m sure they knew I was a mother because I was there with my kids and I didn’t get any. Everyone around me did BUT ME. I would probably go for the food but not really.

As local BH residents, our family has been coming to Culina for 10+ years for Christmas Buffet brunch, New Year’s and Mother’s Day. Today was the poorest and slowest service we’ve received to date. Disappointing given the high standards that we’ve known so far.

The food was absolutely excellent! Got the tuna tartar, the bruschetta, lamb papardelle and the ribeye. All so delicious. And the drinks!!! So so good. Service was subpar, but the restaurant was clearly very busy. Would recommend!

We were really looking forward to joining your restaurant since your assistant manager during restaurant was so terrific and sat us in the fist table inside the overhand of the garden near the guitar player that we gave $20 to that time and again on Sat evening. I also wrote that we would like this same table if it were available. Puzzling: When we got there the table was available but the hostess put us into the table below next to the wall whereby the ambiance is not as nice and the sound from the Guitar player is not as clear. I could understand if all tables were taken but they were not and the table I requested was empty and all of the smaller booths just like that table had 2 people in them (and the chair for #3 was empty in the other two as well as the square table as we all know many tables today only have 2 people. I nicely asked the hostess if she could move us to the table we requested, since open. I said if they were holding it for 3 people, I understand. She nicely said she would check and be back. That never happened. Instead, 4 more people came along and asked if we wanted water, etc and every time I said the same thing as above and each of the 5 total stated they would fine out and be back. this went on for 15 minutes and the last person that came was the hostess that was from the front and had directed the other to sit us at this table we did not want. She gave us such trouble: we do not reserve tables, we will do so but we do not reserve tables (interesting as during restaurant week since another restaurant that changed their mine about participating in restaurant week made the reservation for us with the assistant manager and when we got to the table it had a reserved sign on it). I finally said to her that you arguing with me is making this very unpleasant. I just do not want this table to be empty and it gets filled with 2 people when I really did hope it would be open and we would have just as much a good time as the first time.

The attentiveness of the servers, the quality of the food, the music and ambiance are always too notch. They always do their best to honor our seating preferences too, in the section we love most. 10/10

This place blew me away from the first burst of flavor of the squash blossoms to the playlist they had on to set the mood. Definitely on the more expensive side, but worth it when you want to splurge. My only complaint was that we were sat 20 minutes late for a 9pm reservation and were offered no kind of compensation. They also don’t give you a bread basket. You get Parmesan crisps which are tasty but not filling. If you want to get the house made focaccia for the table it will cost you an extra $7.

It was a bit of a mess the night we dined here. There was a wait for tables (which hadn't been an issue in the past). We were seated in the area in front where no one wanted to be (3 other couples in the area were moved due to the location being windy and cold). Service was not great to start, drink order took over 30 mins, and it took just as long to place our dinner order (I had to walk up to the hostess and ask for our server). The food came out it was just ok, not as great as it was previously but the staff stepped up their service after the rough start. It was a busy Friday night (Oscar weekend) so I can't blame then too much but I do wish it was a bit better.

I came here for my Birthday and they gave excellent service. The food was delicious. I had the burrata with beet tartare one of the pizzas... spicy but I loved that. Try the pappardelle lamb dish. So good! They also came out with a sparkler with my dessert and sang happy Birthday. Was a very nice night
