Wagyu beef ran out and the substituted ribeye was not commensurate and unfortunately, was a disappointment. The frisée, beets, goat cheese salad was less than mediocre; there appeared to be a single postage stamp of goat cheese buried under a considerable tumbleweed of frisée. Not pleasing in any way. The redeeming qualities were the server who was making all attempts to improve the experience, and the ambience was excellent.

Christmas Eve - a nice simple yet sophisticated dinner with family. Service was a bit mixed as happy hour was just ending and the dinner service hadn’t quite jumped into full swing. A few missed opportunities but overall the food was delightful and we had a nice evening out.

Lovely setting and great ambiance. Be sure to confirm seating for large party is appropriate for your group. Our group of 10 was not seated together until I requested a change. Food good although my branding portion seemed skimpy for $28.

Great, classic, upscale place. Real nice vibe inside with the hipster trio band. Found parking right next door just about 100 feet north, got out of there for $2.00.

I always enjoy the Culver Hotel, but having gone there many times over the years, I have to say that the quality of the drinks has gone way down. It sort of feels like they are resting on their laurels, and this is a bad idea, because Los Angeles diners are fickle and there are plenty of great places to eat and drink.

My server, food, and drinks were great. The hostess was terrible, unhelpful, distracted and rude. Why offer the option to say you do not want outdoor seating if it is not then honored at the host stand?

Firstly, the Culver Hotel Is an amazing place to spend a night or two. The staff could not be more accommodating. The set up of their front desk as it relates to the restaurant, etc., is a bit strange, but hey that gives it a little bit of its ambiance!

I was meeting two friends who I get together with annually. I had reserved a table on the patio, which probably would’ve been the best, but the rain prevented sitting outdoors. The staff put us at a lovely table right by the Christmas tree. The problem is that the restaurant is not just a restaurant but it is a restaurant surrounded by a bar. The ceilings are high and as such the noise level is incredibly loud. While I waited for my friends to arrive I was seated at the table but kept getting bumped by not only the bar patrons but the staff. In addition a jazz quartet was warming up to even increase the noise level. Great music… Just not for conversation. I finally asked if there was a quieter location. They brought me to a side area which is more of a walk-through but it did have a table and we chose to sit there, sans ambience, so that we could all talk. Other than the staff initially forgetting that we were sitting there, the service was OK.

We all enjoyed the food and it was good value for the money. I would definitely go back, but maybe not on a rainy night!

Very nice ans cosy place to dine. A bit too dark though.
Food is good but nothing amazing. Good wine by the glass selection. It is quite pricy for what you get in your plate.
It was quite noisy when we were there but I think there was a Christmas party.

Interesting, historic location. Very attentive service. Good food. Live music is kept at a reasonable decibel so you can still talk. Does start to get crowded after 7:30 pm so noise level may go up.

Fantastic service and recommendations from our server. Everything she recommended from cocktails to the main dishes were excellent. Rib eye special was delicious as was the spicy tuna poke, brussels sprouts, baby corn and truffle fries. Check out the lounge upstairs for some old school glam vibes.

I can't give enough appreciation to the staff there made a reservation for my birthday Saturday night for a party of five and there was some squatters on the table that was for us and actually we were seated quite after our reservation time but the hostess and managerwe're in constant contact with us throughout the whole time telling us what was going on and bought us around a drinks and the time went by no problem The server was right on top of us when we sat and we got our order in no time and enjoyed the music and the ambiance and the birthday celebration we were having kudos to everybody at the restaurant great experience

Quaint and cute little hotel. The lobby is the restaurant (and there's outdoor seating also). Delicious short ribs and roasted carrots, good service. "The Wizard of Oz" was showing continuously (silently) on a wall, which was appropriate for the hotel's history, and a two-man combo played on Sunday night.

The place is gorgeous. And the ambiance is lovely. The service and the food is just OK. Appetizers are probably better than the entrees. The menu is small but the wine and cocktail selection is good. Cocktails are particularly good and the mint tea to finish off the evening is served in a real silver pot.

The hostess at the culver hotel was extremely rude. She did not acknowledge my Open Table request for outdoor seating. When I reminded her of this, she acted like it was an imposition. Then she basically had an argument with me when I asked for a table not directly next to another party. The outdoor seating area was nearly empty at this time.

Lovely. Sat in garden.

Spicy tuna poke is among the best I’ve had in a while

Buratta was excellent with greens

Meat board was disappointing. Too much meet, not enough bread, should have cheese pairings

We will address this ASAP and I would like to remind you that we have Saturday & Sunday brunch every weekend! Between 11 A.M. and 2:30 P.M! We hope you check it out!

The venue is top notch. My only criticism is that the food portions, especially the salmon was way to small. Other than that it was a very nice evening and a place I’d will hi again. Likely I will eat at. Nearby restaurant then go to the Culver Hotel for drinks and to listen to the live music.
