Food outstanding. Ambiance lovely. Jazz excellent . Service a little slow
A Real Treasure!
Not only is Culver Hotel a landmark with lots of history to enjoy, it stands today as a trendy spot for cocktails and fine dining! It's perfect for a romantic evening for two or enjoy a special occasion with a group! If you're lucky you may catch live music to accompany your evening!
Culver Hotel has a great vibe - inside or out! A place you can return to time and again for consistently good food and drinks! Five stars from me!!
Concerning the week-ends brunch:
Nothing to add!
The food is good.
Please, advise that the cheese plate is enough for two people.
The value is good except for the wine which is too much expensive. $44 first price for a bottle .
Please, offer Californian wine less expensive!
In Vegas, the bottle of Barefoot, red, or white is at $14 in restaurants. I suggest for you $25 or $30 maximum for a first price bottle.
And, ..., why there is no live music during the week-ends brunch? A little band, one or two musicians only, playing soft music, love songs, not loud, would be appreciated.
Very slow service
Great appetizers but main course over cooked
We enjoy this beautiful renovated historic gem. The bar/restaurant has comfortable seating ranging from sofa's and side chairs to standard dining chairs. There are options to sit outside in a lovely setting. The wine/cocktail list is plentiful. The menu is limited but has very interesting choices. At 7:30pm there is live music nightly.
Highly recommend this spot!
I can close my eyes sometimes here and feel like I'm back in Paris especially when they play old jazz. The place has such a unique vibe and aesthetics. Classy joint that is never without a crowd. Then there's the tasty dishes, fine wine.
It took over 10 minutes after being sat to have someone come up and offer us water. And then things were just slow from there. It wasn't even crowded, so I really don't understand why everything took so long. I suppose they made up for it with a nice free birthday dessert and fire cracker candle. The food was good, although I was irritated that their brunch menu doesn't begin until 4 hours after the restaurant opens, so for a 10AM Sunday reservation I wasn't able to order some of the brunch items. Will probably give this place another try - hopefully the service is better.
The food is great. The outdoor patio is magical, especially at night. Always a good experience.
This was a very underwhelming experience. This is also the only afternoon tea I’ve been to that does not offer more sandwiches when asked, even at an extra cost. The tea was just tea bags that you can go and buy somewhere. It was really noisy outside with the construction and men kept walking through the bushes to get from the patio area to the outside walk area. It was very disturbing. When I arrived and asked if we could sit inside, I was told by the hostess that they’d already set up our table outside. It wasn’t even busy inside and the only thing that was different was a sign that said reserved. Our server was also very inattentive. It may have been because they also had him serving the bar. This was not worth the money for afternoon tea.
We enjoyed our visit and will go again. A lot of Hollywood history, great fun!
Part of very successful Culver City development. Charming hotel. Great for lunch. Perfect weather. Sat outside. Excellent service and food. Highly recommended.
Great service! Food is amazing- ambiance is excellent!
I went with a group of friends this weekend for my birthday. Maxwell helped our table- both times. Haha yes we went back after walking around and checking out other bars! This place is totally my style, great service and staff, wonderful ambiance, loved the outdoor seating- I’ll definitely be going back!
It was really nice. We went for 2 years anniversary and they nicely brought dessert with a candle and left that on them.
Moreover the food is delicious and te jazz night if perfect for romance
Love the Culver. Lovely to sit outside and have dinner. Really enjoy the food especially sharing lots of smaller plates with friends.
I've been there many times. Staff always great. Food and drinks are good.
We made our reservation on-line. However, when we arrived there was confusion - they didn’t realize wee were there for afternoon tea. Rather than disappoint us? They immediately found a way to accommodate us. And, the tea experience was truly lovely!
Love the Culver Hotel! The history is fascinating and the farm to table food/drinks are delicious!
The bar upstairs is fun too.❤️🍸👍🏻
Seated inside in a cavenous room with a bar, the menu seemed limited and service was slow.
One of our 4 breakfast entrees was not delivered to the table. We had to ask for it and follow up numerous times. Wait staff was not very helpful
I have been to the Culver Hotel many times and have enjoyed it. My last visit for brunch was not in line in line with my usual experience. I made a reservation on Open Table which was cancelled when I arrived. The food took 40mins before we were served with no apologies. Our waitor mixed up my order and didn’t bring me the waffle I ordered. Due to the delays I just had the Kale Caesar I ordered. It wasn’t the best experience but I will be back. The ambience is great. This was definitely not one of their better days.
The culver hotel was fantastic. In addition to the food being fabulous, I had a great time listening to the jazz music. It made the ambiance so much better. I am hoping to come back very soon and hopefully I can do afternoon tea soon too.
Food was amazing. Ambiance was fantastic. Worth the money.
Loved the setting. The dining room is beautiful. I felt like I was in an elegant home from the Victorian era without the musty smell. I love the remodel, it is stunning! In addition, the food was good, I only had soup and salad, but the salmon soup was hot and flavorful and the Ceasar salad was adequate, though I thought the dressing could use more lemon or vinegar, as it was little bland.
However, the pour service marred the experience. We had to beg for more water and the waiter disappeared for long stretches My son did not have a fork to eat his salad and we did not get one for most of the meal as there were no servers in sight.
I would go back in the hope that they start training their staff to be more attentive. It is a spectacular setting! An oasis of calm in the middle of Culver City.
Our only complaint this time were the drinks - this bartender somehow messed up the Dark and Stormy. It didn’t taste like ginger beer, and the drink just tasted off. We ordered 4 drinks and weren’t really satisfied with any.
Afternoon tea was not up to the standard I'm accustom to for a tea.
Had a reservation, walked in and let the hostess know who claimed to say that she checked us off. Proceeded to seat us at the worst table in the middle of the main walk way between bathroom and hostess stand. Asked for any of the other tables that were visibly open and for same size party, was told they're reserved... I'm confused, I thought I had a reservation too, how is mine different?
After several attempts to change, they offered me one table not in middle of way, but directly in front of Concierge stand... So small that half my plates and glasses were on the ledge of the window. Again told that the others were reserved.
To top it off, I got an email today letting me know I didn't show up to my reservation, the waiter did what he could with the horrible other parts of the experience, but it was a complete waste of my evening and not worth the time. They need proper hosts and management here.
This is a small and lovely room with an interesting menu, but beware that Thursday is set for live music. The combo was talented, but so loud we could not engage in conversation. When we asked the manager if they could adjust their volume for the size of the room, we were told, "No. This is live music night." I don't see what they have to do with each other; we could have enjoyed both the music and the food. Instead, we cancelled our order and went to a small restaurant down the street. We cannot comment on the food because we never ate there.
We were sitting in the uplevel bar and service wasn't good. they completely forgot about us, never a smile or a nice gesture. The bathroom was really dirty.
We go to that place because we love the architecture and decoration.
very loud. jazz group needs to take more breaks to hear my party
Food was great but drinks were bad, very bad. Not what we remembered.
Great dinner music. Very cozy atmosphere. Food was average for price. Service was nice, but kind of slow. Almost seemed understaffed. Biggest complaint was seated inside next to window with quite a few flies flying around (nearly 10).
Fantastic experience. Jazz night near the fireplace perfect date spot.
Great breakfast in a fantastic room......historical place that has been brought back to life big time.......service was exceptional too.......
Part of the experience in the Culver Hotel ambiance and history. Enjoyed the decor and historical facts. Food was excellent and fast. Service was very attentive. I'd visit again. Perhaps next time for happy hour/dinner.
This is a gem in Culver City!!! Beautiful outside seating. Romantic
Super cute patio with good amount of shade. Wait staff was personable and my dish was tasty.
The lobby bar/restaurant can be very noisy but the outside patio is perfect. Great menu for brunch or dinner. Nice cocktails, too. Happy hour snacks and drinks are a great deal. This is a go-to neighborhood spot for bringing friends or out-of-town guests.
This is a wonderful experience. We went for cocktails and a nosh. The cheese player is fabulous, this time we also ordered the fried calamari. The women at the table next to us had gotten an order and it was mouthwatering. When our order came it was deflated. It was less then half of the order delivered to the table next to us. Now you have to ask why was this. About 10 minuets earlier the hostess came to our table and announced that she had to have us leave with in the next hour because there was another party that had reserved the section of the hotel that included our table🤭
We figured this was their way of getting us out faster, give them less so they don’t spend more time eating. This was followed with our waiter asking if we wanted anything else 🤷🏻♀️ when we told him what the hostess said he was taken aback and said , oh no I will just move you to another table outside of the reserved area. Now this was the proper way to make us fell like valued customers. Cuddos to this very professional waiter
It's a lovely setting. We sat outside and enjoyed a lovely afternoon. I'm a big fan of afternoon tea so I was looking forward to it. However, the scone was a bit dry and the sandwiches weren't that impressive. I was a bit underwhelmed. I am however looking forward to going back and having lunch as the meal looked really good.
