Decently pleasant ambience, our waiter was challenged.....the margarita was pathetic and the food was just SO-SO. Not a place I would say is remarkable!

I've been to Kay 'N Dave's numerous times but this is my first and only review. First the good, K'NDs has a great happy hour. Drinks are very good with a nice selection. Patio area outside is great to sit and enjoy the SoCal weather. Happy hour food is also good as far as happy hour foods go. The bad,... More

I love Mexican style foods, but I do care about my health. Kay n Dave's offers healthier versions of Mexican foods and they use NO LARD. It can be a little loud there, but it's a fun atmosphere and with a lovely outdoor patio.

It is noisy and crowded but the food is excellent, well-served and fairly priced. The black bean soup is the very best that I have ever eaten.

Upbeat place in Culver City for a going away party for co-worker. Allow the whole group to enjoy happy hour prices on the patio....needless to say a taste of everything ensued. Great drinks, friendly staff. Recommend

We stopped by K & D's for dinner after the farmer's market. There is patio seating with heaters and a parking structure around the corner. The service was quick. We had nachos and salsa, then taco combo's and beers. The food was good, but not special. It's really more LA trendy than traditional. The crowd seemed mostly 20 somethings. I... More

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
