Culina, derived from the Latin word for "kitchen", allows guests the opportunity to savor small plates aside a glass of wine or settle in for an elegant, epicurean experience behind the backdrop of an classic Italian film amidst the rainfall of our outdoor fountain. The menu features an esteemed crudo bar with the finest selections of hand prepared raw seafood, as well as homemade pastas, pizzas, and the freshest Burrata and salami. Our wine program offers approximately 200 wines, most available by carafe, from Italy and the rest of the world, with a range of unique aperitifs and cocktails.

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.

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.

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.
