Fun atmosphere and great food!
Patrick was the best!! Delicious food, nice casual atmosphere, and great Happy Hour. Can't wait to go back again soon.
Local gem for sure!!
Good "foodie" dishes and great drinks. It can't decide if it's a bar or a restaurant--it's noisy and tables are tightly packed like a bar but the menu is more than grazing food. Part of the Del Rey "Culver west" scene. It's worth a visit.
This has been my happy hour hang out for the past 2 years.
Fresh oysters! Very nice bartenders and wait staffs, food comes out fast and always yummy. Friends who went with us all had a good time. Highly recommended!
We all really enjoyed our food. The Lobster/Shrimp pasta with black squid noodles is AMAZING! All of our dishes were delicious though. The Fish and Chips isn't heavy. The salad was very tasty. Everyone enjoyed their cocktails and wine. The service is great. Our server was so patient and friendly and made great menu suggestions. It is a little loud inside so if you're looking for intimate conversation then this might not be the spot for you.
Food was good, but not enough to go back for more. Got there early, it ended up being really noisy. Between the music and all of the people talking.
Great food, great service , exceptional cocktail menu.
It was very good here. I recommend the king crab tacos and the lobster squid ink pasta. The fish and chips were perfect as well. I'd like to return.
Best Brussels sprouts in LA!
Incredible food, every course and plate. The wait staff all courteous helpful. Beau du Bois behind bar a humble genius.
Food is always delicious. Can get a little too loud sometimes.
Space was much too loud. Made it very difficult to carry on a conversation
Didnt love the food. Overall decent but nothing really stood out. Food in Culver City isn't great so relatively speaking this place was pretty good, but when compared to the rest of LA this place falls short. The menu looks so good, but the execution was so so.
Ryan and Patrick took such good care of us. We had the best seat in the house and the evening was absolutely perfect!
I brought my (visiting) cousin here for her birthday. The drinks are pricey, in my opinion. The two food items we wanted to try they were out of. The avocado toast was delicious, but small for the price.
The ambiance was great, with a decent sized bar. There are only a few tables outside so go earlier if you want a spot on the patio. We went at 7 and the place was pretty empty.
I go to Corner Door a lot so I really appreciate their rotating specials. Their food is really good, so it's hard to go wrong. Also, Moscow Mules on tap with their housemade ginger beer. It's a must.
The food is so unexpectedly food! It's like comfort bar food at a super elevated level. The place is small-ish and dark. The service is very good!
We went the The Corner Door to meet old friends on our last visit to LA. It's in a part of Culver City that is not the crazy, super busy part so it was easy to park. The best part is the sharable small or large plate menu. Everything we ordered was excellent. The fois gras/chicken liver terrine, the avocado toast, the salmon tartar, the cauliflower, and the fries carbonade, all scrumptious. I ordered a French 75 and later their white rioja from their extraordinary libations menu. We were served by a charming and deep voiced young man named Patrick who took excellent care of us. HIGHLY recommend!
Tried to get comfortable with the loudness but just couldn't. Our waitress was lovely. I requested salad no goat cheese and it still came with goat cheese. Burger was good but should of had fries like the fish and chips
The Corner Door is a hopping place. I took my parents there for a birthday dinner and we all loved the food. The sticky toffee pudding is to die! And the crispy brussel sprouts? So good. The place was super crowded though and felt more like a bar that also had a couple of tables and happened to serve food than a restaurant that happened to have a bar in it. The acoustics were not great either, so it got crazy loud. We could barely hear each other. This is a super cute neighborhood bar spot and I'd definitely come here again with friends to have a drink, eat some yummy small plates and chit chat. I probably wouldn't come here again just to have a nice dinner. It's entirely too loud. And I definitely wouldn't bring two 70 year olds again. They're hip, but not that hip! All in all, it was a fun place, decent value for the money and the service was top notch! Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. The staff called me when they found out it was my parents' birthday (yes both of them born on the same day!) just to ask if there was anything special I needed which was much appreciated and then they threw in dessert (the aforementioned sticky toffee pudding and a creme brulee) for free. Sweet!
LA Weekly magazine put out a "Top 10" burger list for Los Angeles & The Corner Door's burger was on that list. Being a local, I decided to drop by with a friend to try it out. Although the french fries (regular & sweet potato combo) mix was DELICIOUS, our burgers were LESS than lackluster. We had both ordered our patties cooked to a medium-rare temp and both came out BEYOND well. Honestly, it was one of the driest burgers we had ever had. However, the appetizer, avocado toast, was delicious; although very small for the $12 price tag. The beer/selection was great. The crowd was lively & fun, cool atmosphere, while the noise level was HIGH. If you're expecting to actually have a conversation or get to know someone better, this may not be the correct place to go. To hang out with friends, drink a beer... Cool! So... would I recommend this restaurant to a friend? Yes and no... depends on the circumstances & their goals for the evening.
The food here is eclectic and delicious! I absolutely love Patrick, a server who's waited on me a few times now -- so I wanted to mention him. Make sure you try the fries carbonadde (which I am undoubtedly misspelling).
Great little spot, great food!
I met up with some friends for a nice dinner and catch up. The food was fantastic and we had a lot of laughs. The place is small and there aren't a lot of tables. Because the bar and tables are in the same room, it was really noisy. Hard to hear your friends across the table. We had a fun time but it was tough to have a serious conversation. The food and wine selection was great so I would definitely go back and the servers were super helpful and attentive!
Enjoyed my meal but the dessert, pudding, was so good I forgot what I ate. Will b going back
Avocado salad was excellent . Everything was good. Brussels sprouts were good. Very good happy hour menu.
Food was very good, albeit a bit on the expensive side for what you get. However, the noise level on a Friday night was deafening. It was nearly impossible to carry on a conversation with someone right next to you, no less with someone who was one seat away.
The staff is extremely friendly and courteous, and the service is wonderful. However, when I initially entered, I was taken back at the high noise level and asked to be seated away from the others so we could talk. I ordered the steak entree, and I must say it was superb...tender, juicy and favorable, spiced just right. However, I kept waiting for someone to turn on the lights. I couldn't see my food clearly, and neither my friend nor I could recognize all the food on our plates. It sounds trite, but I'd really like to be able to see my food. Overall, I'd recommend this restaurant. The noise is tolerable but better lighting will be extremely helpful.
The food, service and craft cocktails were exceptional.
the food was exceptional. fine eating. jenna was super helpful and it was seamless efficiency-a pleasure to eat there.
We ordered appetizer and entrée. Everything taste awesome! The service is good. Patrick our waiter is very friendly and attentive. Fast service.
Subdued lighting and brick walls set a comfortable, intimate tone for this small bar/eatery on the expanding restaurant cluster on Washington. Shrimp and lobster on squid-ink pasta, avocado toast, salmon terrine with a fried egg, spicy roasted cauliflower, hamachi tartar -- all well-prepared and tasty. Service is friendly and helpful, although can be stretched thin when the place is crowded.
Interesting scene, nice neighborhood place with creative food offerings, a nice break from over hip Venice. Very friendly service.
I came here because they had a lot of things that I wanted to try for Restaurant Week, and I'm generally glad I did. The restaurant is small and dark-ish, and it was a bit tricky finding parking since a lot of the adjacent streets are permit only. My server was nice, but just kind of efficient. Not terribly friendly, but that's OK! The guy who brought my food was very friendly, and I wish I'd caught his name because he was very sweet and attentive. I had the avocado toast, and it was DELICIOUS! I'm not a huge avocado fan, but the one they used was perfectly ripe and paired really well with the burrata and lemony salad on top. I also had the sweet corn gnocchi. I thought the gnocchi itself would have corn in it, but... NO! It was very lovely, puffy gnocchi in a corn, mushroom, and jalapeno laden broth. SO GOOD! For dessert I had the pineapple vacherin. It was ok. A neat circle of chopped pineapple with a tiny cannelle of cinnamon yogurt, and an odd line of black sesame seeds that tasted way more like raw chia seeds. It was like a deconstructed Chobani flip cup! It wasn't my favorite, but the pineapple was sweet and delicious. I rounded my meal out with a great French 75, and a glass of yummy red wine. Overall, I'd totally come back, but it wasn't anything Earth shattering. A nice place to have a nice meal and chat.
The mixed drinks were out of this world. Our server was so helpful and made great recommendations. And oh man, I would eat the chicken pate every day if I could.
Something has changed for the better at the Corner Door. The food in the past was not bad, but there are so many other places in the area with a similar price point, that would get you a better bang for the buck. But the kitchen has tweaked the menu and the food has gotten considerably better. It is still a bar with food, but not exactly bar food -- it has food that would sit comfortably in a casual restaurant for foodies. The staff is very attentive and knowledgeable, with the right degree of friendly hospitality.
It is a bar/restaurant for young professionals who like their craft beer and mixed drinks, but it would be nice if their wine list was longer than a baseball team's starting line-up. It's not a bad list of inexpensive young wines, but if you plan to visit often for the food -- the wine list will get pretty boring pretty quickly.
The food & service made up for the fact that we could barely hear each other.
One of my favorite Happy Hour Spots great food and drinks
Always great food. Always great fun. Always great service. Best Sazerac cocktail in town.
There is nothing I don't love about this place – it's like walking in to your best friend's house. The happy hour cannot be beat and every dish on the menu is as great as the next. Beau kills it at the bar and makes one of the undeniably best old-fashion's in the city. Our server was amazing and knew the menu to a tee. She knew exactly what to suggest to our tastes. The manager, Chelsea, is so kind and makes you feel so welcomed when you walk in and makes sure to thank you when you leave. We love the Corner Door.
