    Love the patio! John was a great waiter. And Kia is terrific! Nice food selections on menu. Only negative- weak dessert selection and didn’t like the flourless chocolate cake. But drinks and dinner were delicious!

    Lillie's has great ambience and you feel like you walked into a different time from the thirties from the style of the hotel to the the band that was playing music from the thirties and forties everything was wonderful service was great food was very good just a little bit on the pricey side but considering this is like one of those rare experiences. worth it once in a while.. wish they had a few more appetizer selections..

    The service was poor. It took 30 minutes to get a glass of champagne. When I ordered a 2nd drink it also took another 30 minutes. The food was okay, but expensive for what it is (and did not come warm). We also had to wait 15mins to get our bill, and waited much longer to actually be able to sign the bill.

    Beautiful space, was hoping for a new place. Menu sounded good... food truly mediocre. To bad the food doesn't match the space. Premium prices though...

    What a wonderful renovation. Lovely and inviting dishing room. Especially like the privacy afforded by the table placement. The music was such a welcome addition to our meal. Scott Bramer’s jazz duo - perfectly perfect! Our meal was very good. Steak Frites of course. But I found the cut of steak tough, and I hope this will improve. The frites were excellent. Martinis in classic glasses were small. Our sever was delightful! and attentive. It is a great spot for romance, or a special occasion. I wish they had a larger bar to sit at directly. I can see losing business because of the small bar area - only a communal table and one high top with no seating. This space is perfect for a drink and a small plate or dessert. Couple that with the music and it would be a packed room. We will return!

    This place has a lot of potential. I recently had dinner here with my wife. We were running 15 minutes late so we called ahead to ensure we don't miss our reservation. The staff were friendly and attentive - it seemed like they worked well as a team because once we arrived a different person greeted us and was in sync with our situation. The service was a little slow as it was a Tuesday night but they had a busier than expected turn out. Once we were served the waitress was friendly, informative and polite which we really have come to appreciate. The food took a little while to get to us but when it did arrive it was extremely tasty. I was impressed with the ingredient quality and the freshness. We will for sure come back.

    Had a lovely birthday dinner at Lillie's at 6pm on a Sunday. The staff was attentive and an added bonus was the live music that started at 7. It got really loud once the music started but we had a great time. Food was very good and seasoned well, my Tuna Nicouse was fantastic. Overall a nice experience, though the menu is very limited and on the pricey side. We'll be back!

    Lillie's is a beautiful setting whether you're indoors or out. The food and service were good but I think $12 for half a baguette is outrageous. In France, you get the bread for free; and even if you buy a whole baguette at a fancy bakery in LA it's half that price. The bread, though good, is such an obvious rip. Steak frites was yummy.

    The hostess didn’t actually hold our reservation. She said they just accommodated everyone who was standing outside instead, so she said 30 minutes we had to wait. We just left and went to Bar Bohemian instead. The pictures of the place look much nicer than it actually is inside, which is really just a plain looking restaurant setting. Noise was a lot as well, as they play loud live music. I tried calling the place to confirm our reservation but after 4 calls, the hostess didn’t pick up. Disappointing and will definitely not try to come back

    I made a reservation weeks in advance for my wife’s birthday. This was a restaurant we always enjoyed. We have been there many times in the past. We brought many friends here because it was always a wonderful experience. I was very excited that they reopened after being closed for a couple of years. This was supposed to be a surprise for my wife. The surprise was on us. We arrived a little early and the table I requested was open and available. We we told someone else requested that table and we could sit in the lounge which is good for drinks, but not for a sit down dinner. I was planning on a nice dinner and champagne to celebrate my wife’s birthday, but they couldn’t have cared less. No accommodations were offered, just the lame excuse that they were busy. Completely unacceptable ,we said we’re going to leave, they didn’t care. Worst experience ever.

    What a treat! The courses prepared by Chef Diana were exceptional! We started with oysters and poached shrimp then had the slow cooked sole and daily special seafood pasta as mains with a side of broccolini. We ended the meal with delicious fallen chocolate cake and coffee crème brûlée! Unique flavors and attention to detail made every dish stand out. The service provided by Jeru was flawless and Aaron, the manager, could not have been more gracious. Lillie’s is the place if you want to make an impression on your guests!

    Very bland food, forgetful service, I had a steak that was overpriced and not seasoned, a ceviche that was not fresh or seasoned, and a burrata salad with bland zucchini and squash that was also under seasoned. It took a very long time to get drinks at our table. Would recommend going there just to grab a drink at the bar and listen to live music if it’s there.

    Restaurant is great for ambience and music, and that was the main reason we were there. However, reservation made in advance was not honored. Reservation was made specifically for the inside lounge. They told us they could sit us outside, but I insisted I reserved for inside. They said we could wait for a table to become available, which we agreed to. Then they moved us to an “appetizer table”, half an hour later. They gave the dinner table to someone else. We then called the manager in, who eventually gave us a real table. The whole thing took an hour. Not impressed with the menu and prices.

    We used to be regulars at the old Culver Hotel restaurant, and had been eagerly awaiting the reopening. We literally checked the website every week for the status. Tonight was the first night of the reopening, and I do get that there are going to be hiccups while things are ironed out. The simple fact is that the menu is inferior to what it was, the food is generally overpriced and under seasoned and the wine selection overpriced as well as limited. We requested so much hot sauce and sprinkled a liberal amount of salt over everything because the food wasn’t well seasoned at all. The wine pours were pitifully small for the price, but at least my husband’s cocktails were good. It was nice coming back on opening night for old time’s sake but I can’t see us returning anytime soon.

    This was birthday and the staff treated us very well. I was surprised how quickly the food came out, a rarity in L.A. The steak exceeded our expectations and the French onion soup was a star. The chicken had a great sauce but was a bit dry. It's hard to do a baked style chicken at a restaurant which is why I typically don't order it, this dish proved the point. The chocolate cake was outstanding! We sat outside which was nice until live music started on the steps creating a cacophony of ambient noise. As a family with a child living in Culver City we left feeling that though well done, with a new high priced and limited menu Lilly's was not directed at us. We are happy to see the Culver Hotel open to the public again, but losing the once casual, family friendly atmosphere is a little disappointing.
