There is nothing authentic about the food here. The food is dressed up to look like it's Mexican cuisine, but it's all superficial. The positives -- decent sized portions, nice outdoor patio, reasonably priced drinks. The meat/chicken/fish is fresh and nothing is greasy. The negative -- bland,bland,bland, with a very canned tomato flavor to all of the sauces/salsas. I've eaten... More

I love this part of culver city because there are so many places to eat in this one area. I like this place because you can sit outdoors and even bring your pets. What I love most is the beef quesadilla with Portobello mushrooms. Very tasty

There's an extensive menu to choose from at this friendly neighborhood restaurant, however I really recommend the Blackened Salmon Tacos if you go at lunch time from the specials. It's pretty laid back, and really the worst thing I can say about Kay 'n Daves is that the service is occasionally hit and miss (which seems to be the issue... More

This is a good place for groups. I thought the food was okay. The waiter was terrific and handled our group really well (even though we were there late at night). I don't think the food itself really stood out but the waiter made up for it with the great attitude and service.

Stopped in to pick up lunch and they promptly seated us at the bar with chips n salsa. Service was attentive & friendly and the food was abundant & spicy. We had combo dinners where you choose 2 or 3 items with rice & beans. Rice was boring, needed a little tomato and some cumin! The black beans and the... More

I always judge a Mexican restaurant by its guac which was not good and not made fresh (so it has the weird stale flavor that makes you think it is going bad). The food was nothing special. cocktails were good. Probably would just go for chips/salsa and drinks but not food.

We went here a few weeks ago for the happy hour. The prices are really good, but you have to be sure to find a seat at the bar to get the happy hour prices. We ended up staying for hours, but spent a lot less than expected! We would for sure go back to Kay and Daves!

We needed a centrally located restaurant where we could get together with friends who were visiting LA, and Kay 'n Dave's seemed to be an ideal place. When we got there on a Friday, it was predictably busy, but they were able to pull together to tables for our group of five with a minimal wait. But that was it... More

Kay n Dave's is a favorite of ours in Culver City. They have outdoor patio seating, a vibrant bar area, and indoor seating. They do not take reservations so the wait is sometimes long. The salmon and spinach enchiladas are a favorite. The chips and salsa are very good as well. The food is more gourmet Mexican.
