Charged $20 more, when I booked price for brunch was $75 per/ person, but they charged $85 per/ person, all beverages they charged additionally . I had a branch in Santa Barbara in Hotel Four Seasons last week and I payed $75 per person including all beverages even Mimosa, Bloody Merry , but here everything different , the thing is when I booked price was $75, so I don't understand why they charged $10 more.

So disappointed for the Dina la menu. Get seafood di mare and the pasta was not fully cooked. It was half raw dough. And the waitress told me that was the way Italian eat pasta. Excuse me? This was raw! I did a lot of fancy Italian restaurant before. No one was like this. So rediclous! Never come it again.

The patio is so lovely and we sat over coffee and dessert and visited with our friends.
The food was very good and beautifully presented. The service was excellent.
Everything was just as we ordered and the waiter did not hover but seemed to
know when he was needed. We will definitely return this summer.

I am so lucky to live three blocks from this fantastic restaurant, and within the last two years I have been here 11 times. Culina is the best restaurant in Los Angeles! It is casual and comfortable with fantastic food. My guest and I both had the grilled salmon and sorbetti for dessert. She had wine and chose from an extensive list, and I had a cocktail that was just perfect. My server, John, is very helpful with menu choices and is quick to provide samples of wine so the customer will choose the perfect one. I simply can't say enough about this place. Do not miss it.

I purchased a Groupon for this restaurant because I had always wanted to try it. Overall, we had a good experience. The food we ordered was delicious (octopus to start, followed by the spaghetti with added meatballs, roasted chicken, & Molten Chocolate cake with mint chocolate gelato). I would not have changed anything we ordered, again it was all delicious. If I had one negative thing to say about the food.. the portions where on the smaller side... but only because I think we are used to getting VERY large portions at other similar restaurants. It was a beautiful restaurant with some nice outdoor seating as well. The restaurant wasn't very busy. It was a hotel restaurant so we were not expecting great things, however, we were surprised how good the food was. I think we would come back with a Groupon, but would not want to pay full price, it was a bit over priced in our opinion.

First things first, the brunch was insane! Never saw anything like it. We were all very impressed.
Now, you are at a Four Seasons in Beverly Hills, CA, so do not expect a fairly priced meal, that being said, I knew what I was getting into walking in, so the price was not a surprise. What was a surprise was how absolutely beautiful the spread was. You have anything and everything you can think of for Breakfast/Lunch and even a kids table for the chicken fingers and fries.
It will set you back, but if you are like me, heading there for an "experience", then expect to ("over") pay as much as $100 per person, including tax and gratuity. We were on vacation and set out to dine like the rich and famous, so it was budgeted.
From the cars being parked by the valet, most of the people there are locals, but l there were some domestic and lower end minivans and SUV's, probably rented like us, there for the Facebook Check-In.
I recommend doing it once, if you can swing it. You may even get to see some celebrities along the way.

Unfortunately, after three other great dining experiences, this meal at Culina was truly poor. We don't know what went wrong, but both my wife's and my food were poor - hers especially. The service and the ambiance were great but the food was extremely poor. It was one of the worst dining experiences we have had in quite some time.
Service here is impeccable. Food is good ...
Service here is impeccable. Food is good but not great. It used to be a nice quiet neighborhood place to eat but last night they had the music turned up louder than it should be in the dining room. It felt like we were eating at club on Sunset. Not what we were expecting.
We went here for Easter Brunch this past weekend. We are from the East Coast, and took a chance choosing a place in Los Angeles/Beverly Hills based on internet reviews. Culina was as good as we had read, and hoped.... and then some!! The food was delicious, the selection/variety was second to none, and the staff and service were superb! It was by far the best brunch we have ever had. Not to mention, we were surrounded by celebs. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we actually joked about flying to California every Easter to partake in the brunch there!! Next time we are in the area, we will definitely be going back for their regular Sunday Brunch.
Culina is a MUST! Trust me!

I requested rare for my ribeye steak. But since the ribeye was served on a skillet, it came out as medium rare which further turns into medium well! I felt that the ribeye steak was wasted as it turned out to be FULLY COOKED! >_<
Good food, one of life's great pleasures
Great ambience for indoor and outdoor dining. Food is great. If you love fish, their Branzino is fabulous. Great overall selections and enough variety of dishes. The staff is top notch, always anticipating and attentive to your needs while managing never to be intrusive. I wish I remembered our servers name, but she was also fabulous.
My friend and I celebrated our birthdays here and had simply perfect food. The home-made lasagna was out of this world and so was my sweet sausage and spaghetti. We shared a Caesar salad with anchovy sauce and I don't normally like anchovies but this was subtle and tasty. My cocktail was extremely refreshing and the red wine was exceptional. For the first time I didn't have dessert!! But I know from experience the sorbets are great. Can't wait to return.
