We arrived at 1 PM and were seated outside. However, NO service was provided. After 20 minutes we reminded the host who said she would send waitstaff to us. They never came and we attempted to leave, but the host convinced us to return to our table and promised a waiter would arrive. No one came after additional 10 minutes so we left. Funny thing: two women who arrived and were seated after us were promptly attended to. Maybe if we were two women and not two men we would have received timelier services. I’d to think it was an oversight but after reminding the host twice, we should have received some service. I felt discriminated against. I hope it is not the case, but it sure does smell funny.

We went on Christmas day for the brunch. It was $55 per head, which I expected. The food was okay, not great, not much variation when you pay that for a buffet, not even table service. I expected a bit more variety. The dessert offering was sad, little nibbles of things that tasted like they came from the grocery store. The patio was nice. And, although the waiter was attentive, I would have appreciated knowing before I booked that they were going to add a 20% tip for 3 people. Overall a disappointment.

We went for the Christmas lunch buffet, which was delicious. The room was decorated beautifully and the service was attentive, though not at all rushed. This is one of my favorite places in downtown Culver City and does not disappoint.

As a high tea lover I was very excited to come here for birthday/christmas celebrations. I was soon very disappointed. Staff was INCREDIBLY slow considering how empty the place was. Our waitress was a total space cadet, bringing hot water without anything else (not milk, etc.). The real reason I go to tea is truly for the scones and the scones here were inedible. No birthday acknowledgement was the final touch!

Disappointing experience overall... The food was ok, but I was expecting the service and ambience to be classy and old school to match the setting. Not so. The lady at the front desk was rude and didn't acknowledge us at all at first, more interested in the phone call she was making. The service was functional and slow, the waitress was charmless and wasn't particularly interested... Nothing super bad, just not what I was hoping for and certainly not an experience to match the surroundings...

Perfect date night ambiance with the great food, wine, cocktails, intimate seating, live jazz, and beautiful old hotel decor, and then the back bar that is upstairs and even more intimate. All around a brilliant place to go with your date or friends.

The staff at the Culver Hotel is unusually efficient, friendly and caring. They (servers/waitress, bus boys, reservation personnel, etc) make the dining experience so pleasant. The food is good, not great, but very good.

The salmon and salad was very delicious. The salmon was well-seasoned and flavorful. The salad was fresh and crisp.

Sunday seemed an unusual day with a wedding inside the main area and a birthday party in the tea room area. Perhaps this was the reason, but the service was very slow, and the ambiance absent. The server seemed totally oblivious of us being there because we were not offered water or a starter platter of bread until we requested. The meal took an unusually long time to reach the table. We ordered two desserts to share, but one was delayed in coming, so we cancelled.

Overall, I like the venue and would be willing to give it a try on a less unusual day. Perhaps the restaurant should apprise you when making reservations of any unusual circumstances or have enough staff to accommodate regular guests and private parties.

Lovely old hotel. Mediocre everything else.

Sorry to say that because I would prefer to support this historic part of Culver City.
Salmon Benedict was ok, but room temperature. Husband's Seared Tuna Salad was fishy in all the wrong ways. Waitress didn't seem to know anything about anything (the specials, gin list, what a wheat beer might be). Maybe still in training?

To round out the lackluster food and blase service, got an email from OpenTable we had not honored this reservation. (Meaning the front hadn't bothered to check off our info when we arrived.) Sigh.

We enjoyed meeting our friends for an after work dinner at The Culver Hotel. They were in town from NYC, and enjoyed the film history and jazz music. Drinks were excellent, as was the food. We did receive some conflicting info from our waitress regarding the menu. Someone in our party was in need of gluten free options, and she asked what her options would be. The waitress said to check for items with "GF" listed, but there were none. The waitress then became a little exasperated with our friend, and told us she would check with the chef, but then didn't. When we pressed her to, she came back with very few options and was short with our friend when taking our order. We realize it can be difficult to accommodate the needs of some guests, but there's no need for bad attitude. Again, overall, it was a nice evening, but this incident was troubling.

Poor seating for meals inside, non-standard tables and seating, although looks like it would be great for drinks / happy hour. Indoor, really is more f a bar and hotel lobby setting, not really suitable for breakfast for six. They cobbled some tables together, but really, not a good / comfortable experience. Outdoor seating appeared to be random, some sofas with low tables, some high top tables...better than inside. We went for breakfast (a bit too early for brunch) but the Brunch area was set-up by the time we left. This too looked to be a bit random, but we didn't have Brunch so can't really comment on that. Food for breakfast was OK. Nothing special. Basically typical hotel restaurant food. Not bad, not good. Not reason really to return for the food. Maybe Brunch is better. The service was spotting. Not the fault of the server. She was pleasant and did a good job when she was able to get to us, but she was stretched way too thin. Long wait to order. Long wait or food. Long wait for the bill (had to track her down). Overall, a little disappointing. Maybe will come back to try the patio seating, but not sure. Lots of other options in the area with better (more interesting) food, better staffed service, and at least comparable setting.

Food was great, and we were much happier by the time it and the drinks arrived, but the service was pretty bad. It took us 20 minutes to get the waiter's attention, there might have been too few people on staff, since it seemed like he was the only one in the area. We had to constantly go find him. I would still give this place another chance, because we enjoyed it despite the service.
