Entertainment
Live music is an integral part of the Culver Hotel experience. As the evening sets in, our hotel’s Grand Lobby transforms into everything from a piano bar to a jazzy supper club. Vintage armchairs, classic movie projections and up-and-coming artists each play a part in the carefully curated ambiance, setting the stage for a wonderful evening of handcrafted cocktails, tasty fare and musical pleasure.

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

Mini reunion for our MBA cohort. Reservations for 4 people made through open table. They accommodated the request to sit inside (it was a hot day). The food was delicious. Two of us ordered the “bottomless” mimosas. The server Maxwell decided to cut us off after 4 servings. Our group was not loud, we weren’t slurring our speech or spilling drinks. He felt uncomfortable serving us more. Soured the occasion at the end. But we crossed the street to a restaurant called Public School and finished our celebration. I’d come back - just not for mimosas.

It was quiet because it was July 4th, I had just finished work and was starving and in need of a drink. Greeted immediately by smiling hosts, brought to a table by the window, ordered drinks a Lavender collins for me and an old fashioned for my friend.
The beet salad and heirloom tomato salads were delicious, fresh bright flavors.
I ordered the mushroom tagliatelle and she had Bolognese. We ordered the bottle of Falernia Malbec for $36 which was a steal. The best Malbec I have tasted in a long time.
Dessert was banana foster and panna cotta .
Overall a success, we left happy and look forward to returning.
Oh and Jazz gave the place an intimate party atmosphere.

Lovely venue. Airy with pretty furnishings. Intimate given the low number of seats. Food was decent except for the rock-hard dessert. Service was pleasant. No changing table in the men's room (perhaps in keeping with the vintage theme).

Our usual table didn't have a table there, so the manager went out of his way to find a replacement table for us. Much appreciated, and we'll see you next week!

The wait service was abominable. We had to summon the waiter to order our lunch because he was spending time talking with another group and never gave our table a look when he walked by. We ordered desert which never came. We summoned a bus boy to go find our waiter because he had disappeared and because we had been waiting a 1/2 hour for our deserts. When the waiter finally showed up with the deserts, 1/2 of our party had had leave because they were now late.

Food was really good. Service was really slow. The jazz band was loud...
We were just 3 people, so we could still talk and hear each other.
I'd sit outside if you are larger group....

We had lunch at the Culver Hotel with my husband’s family while visiting in May. No one in our group had been here before. The dining area is beautiful and the service was excellent. I really enjoyed the seared tuna salad. The tuna was prepared perfectly. The rest of our group liked the hamburgers and Cuban sandwiches that were ordered. The breakfast and brunch menu also looked very interesting. I would definitely go back again.

Culver Hotel Lobby restaurant is a great place to hang out and eat. Great atmosphere and live music (not sure which days). The only drawback is that the drinks aren't too strong. Food is great. On a nice day, the back patio is an awesome place to sit.

Our experience at the culver hotel has improved with every visit. The service is great these days, and I couldn’t be happier. I just wished they put the s’mores back on the menu.

Their drinks are great, generously portioned and definitely not weak. My old fashioned could have knocked out a horse.

The Culver Hotel is a beautiful building with cozy areas for conversation as well as dining tables. I enjoyed the area where the hotel is located as well. Service is excellent. My salad of seared ahi, however, did not meet expectations. It was okay. The price was reasonable, so no worries. Coffee was really good.

Some friends and I met for brunch and a movie in Culver City. The Culver Hotel is so beautiful and full of light from the large windows. It is a well taken care of historic building. You feel the film legacy of the area and can enjoy a lovely environment with fireplaces and large windows. Their food is pretty good too. My friend enjoyed the bottomless mimosas quite a lot.

Took my mother, who was visiting me in Los Angeles for the first time, to the Culver Hotel for afternoon tea. I was incredibly disappointed with my experience. I made the reservation almost a week prior, and called 24 hours in advance (as requested on their Website), to inform the hotel that we would like to have their afternoon tea at 1 pm the following day. We arrived promptly, but were not seated until 20 minutes after our initial reservation. The service was incredibly slow. We did not end up dining until nearly an hour after our reservation. We repeatedly asked for various things (water, milk for our tea, sugar, etc.) to no avail.

Hesitant to share how much we enjoyed our special tea because we don't want it to get too popular. We had a great experience from our warm welcome from the hostess to the exceptional service from Melanie our server. The food was exceptionally tasty and light and is made on sight. We totally overate and then were presented with a scrumptious creme brulee fot the birthday girl. Thought we couldn't take another bite but tasted it to be polite....it was only fabulous. Will return for brunch, lunch, drinks, dinner as soon as we can.

It is always hit or miss here when it comes to service, and this time, unfortunately, the service was atrocious.

The waitress was busy, it wasn't her fault, but that doesn't change the fact that it took us 20 minutes for our orders to be taken, and another 20 to get our drinks - and since bottomless mimosas end at 3, we wanted to get the drinks started.

As always, the food was excellent, and once we got good and drunk, we were quite happy, but it was still a chore to get refills on our drinks. My bf had to go to the bar several times to get our drinks refilled because our waitress was in the back somewhere with another party.

Regardless, we will still be coming back. I guess it is a good thing that service is just so exceptionally bad here, I would say 4/5 times it is awful - and we have been here a LOT, otherwise this place would be jam packed, because the food and drinks really are very, very good.

My friend and I spent a very pleasant Sunday afternoon with a late brunch at the Culver Hotel. We shared a couple of dishes and had some wine outside on one of the taller tables.
It wasn’t very noisy most of the time which is one of our main criteria for sharing meals. Our hamburgers and fries and a beet and persimmon salad were excellent.
We would come back here at least at this time of the day whenever we have the chance.
