The Culver Hotel
Please note, for Tea Service, Parties over eight (8), and Holiday Celebrations, please call to make a reservation.
Wonderful ambiance, outstanding service, and delightful menu. The live jazz is a treat. After dinner, guests can stroll upstairs to the bar for a nightcap. Hard to beat!
Nice vibe. Lounge upstairs is cool. Food was interesting. Carrots where under roasted so hard to eat. Cool old atmosphere.
My girlfriends and I decided to do our monthly brunch here Sunday gone - ambiance and setting was perfect. Our server was friendly but, we were in there for an hour before we were given water and some bread for the table (the water we had to ask for 3 times) the bread came but we had no silverware, butter, plates or butter knife - so we had to ask for that too. They then only brought out 2 plates so we needed to ask for 2 more. Our mimosa's and coffees took their time coming out also. I ordered the burger - no extras just as is and it states on menu $18 and comes with fries. I had to ask for the fries nearing the end of the meal (as this is when they next checked on us) and they apologized and said they would bring them out at no extra cost (I mean I'd expect so they're included!), however when the check came they had billed the Burger at $20 - before tax. I had booked in advance i.e. they were expecting us... So the service was honestly terrible. I don't know if its always like that - or if they just happened to forget about us that day! Place was pretty and I can say that the food was good. I would recommend but with this warning!
Hotel was understaffed. The valet was no where to be found so had to park across a busy street and trek a baby along. This made the experience a bit stressful. Food and drinks were slow but waitress was polite and friendly.
good food and good value. nice ambience. terrific service.
Food was great, but the waitress wasn't our favorite. We often had to hunt her down.
The main room is beautiful but all hard surfaces and so noisy as all get out. We were seated outside on a cold night under a pair of heat lamps. It was OK except for the competing music from the private party upstairs that clashed with piped in music from the outdoor speakers. Thank goodness it wasn't raining. I had the sea bass, which was good, but an awfully tiny piece for $26. My friend had the short ribs which were also good, but served on a gloppy green slop of overcooked greens infused with way too much balsamic vinegar. I paid $20 for a shot of brandy that came from a bottle I found out later retailed for $38/750ml; do the math and you find an outrageous markup. In sum, not much choice on the menu and what there was seemed served in awfully stingy portions given the merely OK quality and stiff prices.
The Culver Hotel is very special to our family and we go to the restaurant as often as possible. Always have a great experience. Can't wait to go back.
This is a must-visit place for lunch and dinner. (I haven't tried Afternoon Tea yet.) It's authentically charming and refined. It's a great place for a business lunch meeting. Roomy, excellent acoustics, gracious service, and of course delicious food at affordable prices. Highly recommend.
Our experience was incredible. The staff had the perfect table waiting for us, the ambience was very romantic, and there was even live music toward the end of our dinner. The food and service was impeccable as well.
Took forever to get service! Food was cold and bland. Arrogant staff who act like we’re doing them a favor by coming there!
We had a great evening the hotel and ambiance are fantastic. The live music was too loud, we were screaming to be able to hear each other.
It is hard to find a resturant in Los Angeles that has good live music and amazing food. Culver Hotel has exactly that! The ambiance is fun and romantic. The hostess were friendly and welcoming. Unfortunately, our server was incredibly unpleasant. We had a reservation for 5, we were on time and respectful. However, the gentlemen who was our server treated us with such a snobby attitude, completely unwarranted. He included gratuity onto our bill even though the resturant clearly states that gratuity is added for 6 or more people. It wasn't right to be forced to tip a server a certain amount for their poor attitude. Otherwise everything else was wonderful.
staff waa rude, valet was understaffed, food waa below average, especially for the price
Perfect way to display Culver City to out-of-towners, but will certainly be a regular spot for other special occasions. Great service and food, even if it didn’t come out at the time expected. Outdoors worked even with cold weather!
Amazing service! They went above and beyond to make sure we have a wonderful afternoon!! Little details and touches were perfect. Would love to come back for special events again!
Great music and ambiance. Food is a little expensive but since the music is free we were happy to pay it.
The food was very nice. I also liked the drinks that I got.
An oasis in downtown Culver City. The place to have a pleasant lunch with excellent service
Went to the Culver Hotel Restaurant for afternoon tea. Finger sandwich selection was limited, but all the food was fresh and yummy. The construction next door made it a bit too noisy to hear conversation.
There was extremely loud construction going on right outside - so loud it was difficult to have a conversation. I would have gone to another restaurant had we known about this prior to making the reservation. They also got our drink orders wrong. Food was pretty good, but very pricey. I think the price would be worth the experience if it hadn’t been for the construction - the dining area is beautiful!
This an outstanding restaurant that is the perfect combination of great food, outstanding service, and romantic ambience in the historic Culcer Hotel.
We got a chance to sit in the side room that was much quieter than the main room. I would certainly ask to sit in that room again.
Since they got rid of the bottomless mimosas I will no longer come to the Culver Hotel. I ended up paying for every single mimosa I had.
This place is going down the drain. Too bad. The food is always good, but the value is gone.
Had brunch here yesterday and it was the worst service I had in years. We were sat outside in the 50 degree weather but were promised heaters that didn't work; we were sat in the shade at a wobbly table. We moved to the sunlight and was still cold. Our tea and coffee was served cold as well as the food. When we asked the third time to move inside, we were finally moved, but a server never came back to our table. We had to track down the manager just to pay the bill. Really cute space with absolutely terrible service.
Our experience at the Culver Hotel was exceptional from the moment we walked in until the end of our wonderful dinner. Joe our waiter was awesome and when he went on break his associate was just as supber. The live jazz and ambiance was the icing on the cake.
It very quaint, reminds me of New York. Staff was friendly, and willing to please.
Valentines. Highly recommended.
Had a great time celebrating Valentine's day, the music was lovely and the staff was attentive and great
Thursday night live music is a must-see. The food and cocktails were perfectly flavored.
Dining at the Culver Hotel is always a treat. Thank you.
We booked in advance and said it was a special occasion we are on our honeymoon and we were not placed at our reserved table because they weren’t ready for us or decided to change us for some reason once we got there. We sat on a couch against the wall the movie was playing on so we couldn’t see it, directly beside the band so we couldn’t hear each other and we were forced to sit beside each other instead of facing each other. This would not have been so bad if we were just getting a drink or even a few appies but we wanted to get actual meals. The “table” we were given was a side outdoor patio table that barely fit both our drinks and water glasses when we asked for a different table they just brought a second one of these tables over. We probably would have made do with all of this but we were seated directly next to a party of 6 and they way we we’re facing them and not each other just sort of made it seem like we were intruding on them and was quite uncomfortable. Our waiter was very nice but left for break just as we finished our meal and said someone else was looking over the section but no one ever came by. The food was delicious and when we brought this to their attention they moved us to an actual table but it was in the middle of 2 other 2 tops and they were so close we were literally bumping elbows they comped our desert and brought us each a drink on the house which was appreciated. Overall make sure you’re okay with the seating situation and it was uncomfortably loud.
Food was great but service was slow.
We celebrated our anniversary there and the staff went out of their way to make things absolutely wonderful for us, even compared to the usual excellent service we get every week. Thank you for an awesome dinner!
Very inviting and the food was great. Definitely looking to come back!
Special location that has continuously been progressing toward being a reliably excellent special destination. Inside or outside, it feels like no other place in LA and now the food and service are also reaching a higher standard...and they have good live music that deserves attention, but doesn't overwhelm conversation.
Wonderful atmosphere and attentive staff made for a very nice evening. The live band was good, as was the house music. It’s a busy room, but not so loud one has to yell.
The food was very good, nice selection on the menu. The service was ok, not great.
It was lovely. We celebrated a birthday and it was lots of fun. I loved the birthday sparkle candle. I also love the ambiance of the room.
My out of town guests LOVED the brunch. We had a small hiccup with the valet, but the hotel manager went above and beyond to ensure all was resolved.
