“A Real Charmer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Now that Le Saint Amour is out of the way, Meet is the requisite stop for anyone in the area wanting a good French meal. We discovered this place a few years ago, when they were the latest darling on Culver Blvd. and we've been fans ever since.

On Wednesdays, you can indulge in their all-you-can-eat mussels, prepared 16 different ways. It's a delicious bargain that wins our hearts every time.

If Mario is working, you'll be charmed by his good looks, affable manner, and generous spirit. Owner Sebastian makes you feel welcome, and certainly has a winner with this little gem of a restaurant.

Sit outside if the weather permits, and watch the jacaranda trees unleash their lavendar petals on the sidewalks below.

“Best mussels in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

This small restaurant in Culver City is the best place to have Mussels in the Los Angeles area.
They have 2 sizes of portions and about 8 varieties of preparation.
We like the ones with Roquefort the best.
The smaller size is perfect for lunch . Bread is served with any entree.
Perfect place for lunch or dinner

“well, the mussels are pretty good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

we dropped by on a cold night recently, but the enclosed outdoor space was well heated. everyone said to try the mussels, and since I love mussels, I obliged them earnestly. the creamy wine sauce with a generous amount of garlic (I also love garlic) was really delicious, and the serving of mussels itself was very generous. service was very good on a busy night.

“Great mussels!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

My husband and I love mussels and decided to go to Meet. It is a bit crowded because it is small, but I would recommend it anyway. We both had mussels that were prepared differently. They were flavorful and had good texture. If you prefer tiny mussels, this is not the restaurant for you. They are larger in size, but very tender. We had wine, bread and thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

“Awesome mussles, great atmosphere and staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

Dined here for brunch with spouse after Christmas shopping. Had a wonderful mussels meal with French baguette to soak up the broth. So many types of mussels to choose from including many you haven't tried before: we loved the blue cheese and leeks. Also have nice sandwiches, eggs, and an incredible chocolate fruit fondue.

Staff are friendly and helpful. Nice outdoor patio dining area as well. All You Can Eat mussels specials weekly!

Look forward to returning here soon.
