I stumbled upon this restaurant with some colleagues. We were fashionably late, but still had our table waiting. To my surprise as we sat down the hostess says it is 1/2 off wine Wednesday. My prayers had been answered. We ordered a few Red Zins in the upper ranges that were just fabulous. The sommelier was knowledgeable and great to... More

Akasha in Culver City always surprises me with their clever dishes and cocktails. Love their wines and the look and feel of the restaurant. I've felt at home eating with a group or sitting at the bar alone. Food is American with a twist, usually mexican and/or asian influences. Always something light offered, in compliment to something heavier and stick... More

Third visit to this restaurant, this time for Thanksgiving. Five of us, seated outside. Short review: The food and cocktails were very good. The service was horrible. Akasha, you really messed up our family's Thanksgiving. Long review: It took three hours to eat. There were several 30-minute lapses where no one came to the table to check on us, including... More

Have been to Akasha several times during the past few years. Atmosphere warm and friendly. This was a family visit and included our not quite 3 year old grandson. We went early [530] and our grandson was accommodated without fuss or bother. Food is eclectic and quite good. Wine and beer lists are extensive and thoughtfully chosen. Highly recommended.

Culver City is so easy to get to and it has so many good restaurants. Every time I go to Culver City, it turns out to be a good experience. Akasha is no exception. The food, service, ambiance are all really good. This is another restaurant with unique menu items that are really good. Will go back to try other... More

My wife, son and I dropped in for an early dinner in order to meet our movie time across the street. We have visited this restaurant several times in the past and have always enjoyed our meals. This time was no different. They always have great food and the prices are equal to most establishments that are on par with... More

Had dinner for 4 on Halloween night and really enjoyed the show! Food and drink first.... The mixologist is creative without overdoing it. We had excellent drinks from the list, which changes regularly. One of our party likes rum and that night there were no rum drinks listed, so the server suggested and the bar prepared a great pomegranate mojito.... More

Great food, very diverse in offer and price, but fair. We sat outside, very nice. Only disappointment were few roaches outside, but the restaurant could not help that I guess.

We stopped prior to a Forum concert with reservations. No hello, no welcome, no greeting...just a growled question and no smile/eye contact: do you have a reservation? On leaving she still had no smile and a poor attitude--- Ambience and atmosphere is upscale casual and quite attractive. Food server was personable, professional and knowledgable. Food: Salmon, kale salad and chicken... More
