    This restaurant is located in a hotel. You can either pay $15 for valet, or there is parking across the street. Parking on Monday was $4 for 2-3 hours. Both times that I have gone, we have gone at 11, which is right when they open. By the time we're getting our food, the restaurant seems to be filling up pretty quickly. The most recent time we went, we celebrated a birthday. We got their celebration shots, which was a tequila espresso mixture, with a shortbread cookie on top. For drinks, we had the Etta rita (margarita, tajin rim), Yuzu Sour (whiskey sour; Japanese whiskey; so smooth), and Wide tf Awake (mezcal espresso martini, mezcal was not overpowering). We had the focaccia bread, shrimp, and salmon crudo starters. The focaccia bread came with a whipped honey ricotta truffle spread, and that was so good with our pizza crust! We had the fire pie and margarita pie. I really enjoyed the chili oil on the fire pie, but the sausage and chili oil makes the pizza a little too soft in my opinion. I usually am not a fan of raw fish, but the salmon crudo was bite-size pieces of salmon, seem to be lightly cooked in someway, served with a lemon sauce. It was very good, I would encourage people to try! Everything here was 5 stars easy: food, service, and ambiance.

    Etta is my favorite restaurant in LA ! I live in Culver City so I’m lucky to have this restaurant close to me! The ambiance , energy, the service is always GREAT! I came with my sister, nephews, and best friends and we had a blast ! It had been a year or so when you guys first opened that my sister and nephews visited last bc they live up north, so they were happy to eat there again!! So much FUN! Alison was our server this last visit and she was PERFECT! 🫶🏽 Don’t miss this gem in downtown Culver City!!! 🥂✨✨✨

    This is our 2nd and last time attempting to spend our time at Etta. We had a confirmed reservation, but we’re kept waiting for 40 minutes. Events, we decided to go somewhere else. The hostess seemed to not care that we were waiting so long. They were crowded but very inefficient.

    etta Culver CityResponded on December 5, 2022We are so sorry to hear this and will reach out privately to apologize directly and see what we can do to make things right. Thank you and we hope to hear from you.

    I made reservations and attended early. The resturant opened at 5pm, my reservation was at 5:15p. I arrived just before the restaurant opened. Somehow my daughter and I were seated outside on a rainy & cold night. The restaurant was empty and awaiting other parties. I asked to be seated inside and was told the restaurant was too booked for this to be obliged. I was not notified that we'd be seated outside prior to arrival. And last but not least we were the only African Americans which felt really awkward considering the resturant was nearly empty and we were seated out back. My waiter Kelly was great!

    etta Culver CityResponded on December 10, 2022Dr. Ford, thank you for your visit and compliments on your Captian, Kelly. We are so sorry you couldn't be seated where you had hoped, and we would love to clear things up with you and apologize directly. Please look for a private message from us, and we look forward to being in touch.

    OMg…!!!…. came here on a Monday night early reservations, and the hostess was friendly at the door and very pleasant and as she said, it’s in the dining room, we asked for a booth and she gave us a booth because there was not too many people in the restaurant there after the server came and gave us his friendly smile and we ended up ordering - sweet potato, baked oysters, two pasta dishes, and a pizza and a fish, and every single dish was absolutely a home run, and it was service with a smile that was genuine and passionate and this place cares about the service about the food and about the ambience and I hope all restaurants and all they can follow this model so thank you thank you thank you and it was a birthday to remember and we will be back soon… you guys ROCK!!!

    The focaccia for DAYS!!!!!!! Everything else is incredible but make room for the bread

    etta Culver CityResponded on November 29, 2022Thank you. Our focaccia is made from scratch daily using the highest-quality, certified USDA Organic high protein bread flour that makes all the difference. The ricotta cheese is also house-made daily as well, then the ricotta is whipped with honey and truffle oil.  After being baked, it's then topped with fried rosemary and brushed with Molino olive oil, normally found at specialty grocery stores. We're happy to hear you enjoyed it so much and we hope you are back for more soon!

    Me and my partner are visiting for a few days and randomly found this place on Google. This place went above and beyond my expectations. Aesthetically it's a very pretty place and very lively. Our sever, Justin, was so friendly and very pleasant to talk to. The food was incredible! From the starters to the dessert everything was wonderful. We started with the fire baked focaccia which came with a honey, truffle ricotta cheese. By far the best focaccia I've ever had! The wild mushroom pizza was also amazing and came with a lovely assortment of toppings. Lastly we finished off with the pistachio ice cream and it tasted as good as it looked! Highly recommend coming here and I'm already thinking about my next visit!

    etta Culver CityResponded on October 11, 2022Jordan, we are so glad you and your partner found us and that you enjoyed your meal so much. Our focaccia you loved so much is made in-house, as is our honey, truffle, and ricotta cheese.
