The food is absolutely amazing. There are
Zero complaints about that. They have everything a person could want and more- top notch. The issue we had was with our service. It was like moving a mountain to get more coffee or water. We had to actually track people down each time. We had to search for someone to take our plates.
In the meantime, people ordering alcohol seemed to have every need attended to. Not cheap about it or judging- we just don't drink. This was very, very disappointing and would make me give a cautionary preface before recommending.
Brunch was great, as usual. Will definitely return.
The food and service for Sunday brunch were both excellent. In particular, the chicken and waffles and the brownies were my favorites. The Chinese New Year’s duck was also good. I also liked the comfy chairs. The valet parking is only ten dollars for brunch. There was more than enough staff, and they all were helpful. We even got a carry out bag for our birthday dessert. It was quiet at eleven, but after noon it got super busy, loud, and crowded.
Very posh restaurant with a fitting crowd. The hostess was very snooty and tried to stick us in the corner of the outdoor patio. We asked for a table inside and were seated in a nice spot by the window. The waiter and sommelier gave excellent service and the food was excellent as well. Really fun place for a special date night.
Food is mediocre.
Service was slow
Food Was excellent , Service Wasn’t so great .
Culina was a beautiful experience for our family. Atmosphere, food and wine were outstanding. Will go again when I have the opportunity.
The food itself was average. Several other places within the same price range have much better food. The service was excellent.
My financial advisor from Chicago took me to dinner at Culina, my favorite restaurant. Our cocktails were excellent and the halibut, the special of the day, was perfectly done and presented--and no bones. Ditto with my friend's salmon. There is no separate section for salads, just antipasti, so we had the kitchen create a Caesars salad for us. Gelato dessert was scrumptious. I can't wait to return.
Food, service and ambiance were great. Never had a glass of wine be brought to the table with taste before it was poured to ensure you would enjoy it. Very nice touch.
I was there for Sunday brunch, they do a wonderful job of food selections. The quality is wonderful. It isn’t just the normal boring brunch menu, there is something for everyone. Healthy to decadent . Gluten-free and vegan.
Even special treats for kids.
The polenta wasn’t what I thought it would be. I was hoping for a crust on top. Everything else was great! We especially enjoyed our waiter, Daniel. His humor matched ours perfectly! I will definitely recommend this restaurant to our friends.
We started off with the beef carpaccio and grilled octopus...both dishes were small but stellar. I had the rich and delicious risotto with asparagus that was brought over by the chef in a beautiful cheese bowl (yes the bowl was made of cheese!). The bowl did not stay with us...: ( My dining partners order the lamb ragu over polenta and the branzino. Do NOT skip dessert! The butter cake and butterscotch budino were heavenly! I would come back just for dessert! Major kudos to are sweet/patient/fabulous server Renee. Thank your for making our meal so special!
This was an awesome experience. My partner and I split a four course meal (we're light eaters) and our service was impeccable. Our sever never made us feel uncomfortable and was very helpful along the way. In fact, they literally split out dishes so we always had our own plates of food in front of us. The food was just as spectacular. We had the Polipo alla griglia (Grille octopus), the Ravioli al brasato e fave, the Bistecca alla griglia and the Butterscotch Budino for dessert. It was one of the best meals I've had in Los Angeles in a long time.
We went for our anniversary and greatly enjoyed our first time at Culina. Our server Michael was just about the best waiter we've ever had. Very knowledgeable, polished, attentive (but not overly so) and responsive. Food was very good. Ambiance was good though the playlist was aimed toward Millennials, and most of the clientele was over 50. That's the only thing I would change.
Great staff so well trained. A great time.
We used the Groupon and had a wonderful meal. The food was delicious and the service was exceptional.
Will definitely come back to Culina.
Overall speaking, we were quite pleased with what we had been offered and served except the occasional noise level coming from the high pitch infant crying from 2 nearby tables. Then again it wasn’t your fault.
Another AMAZING experience... the food is well prepared by a very talented Kitchen Team leaded by Chef Luca Moriconi. Impeccable !!!!
Great service, thank you Orsola, and very good wine selection.
We will be back!!!!
The location is great. The decor and ambiance is very nice and modern. The food was delicious and the presentation beautiful. It is a great place for lunch inside or outside.
