I hadn't been to Culina for awhile so was pleased when a friend selected it for a special dinner. The menu was considerably smaller than it used to be but that was fine with me as there were plenty of things that I like. We shared a couple of appetizers - the frites were great and so were the Brazilian... More

I went there for brunch with my wife+2 kids just to try something different, and I can tell you that food was awesome, and the service very nice, small restaurant, warm environment and food that I never try before, recommended 100%. Just a tip for next time, please make a kids menu, thanks!

Wow. I read previous reviews so I was really expecting to get a great dinner. We were shocked when we got our orders. It was nothing exceptional. I'm not a foodie, but I have eaten at a few good restaurants. We both felt the reviews are over rated. My husbands dinner and mine were not rave worthy. Portion sizes were... More

I came with my mom and sister breakfast on Easter weekend and we were not disappointed. They carry Transcend coffee which was a perfect start to the meal, the the server constantly came by with top ups which was great! I had the bacon and eggs for breakfast, which was a frittata with pulled pork. Both were great, as was... More

My partner and I originally were going to order two small plates and two large plates but the server suggested dropping one of the small plates because he was worried that we were ordering too much food. Turns out that was a great call and we ended up packing home some of our appetizer. Honestly, how many places will tell... More

We visit every couple of months because we know we'll never be disappointed. Top notch food. Sometimes we wish we could have had what we had last time as the menu changes all the time, including the drink menu. Food is outstanding and creative. Service is top-notch and engaging. Atmosphere is intimate but there is the option to sit outside... More

We used Culina catering service for a wedding rehearsal dinner for 24 people. WOW!! The service was awesome and the meal was amazing. Portion sizes were huge! GREAT value for the money. I will definitely use (and highly recommend) them for any event big or small.

I met a friend here for breakfast on a Saturday and the place was packed. Do make reservations. There is a side lot with free parking and street parking. It has a nice atmosphere and the service was very good. My friend ordered Eggs Benedict and I ordered their Bacon and Eggs which were creatively prepared. They were delicious but... More

We had four share plates. They were a good size and very interesting. Food was hot, local, spiced nicely. The menu is small so if you're picky check first. Alcohol was a bit pricey but similar to most small restaurants. The atmosphere is nice with great servers. Small plates were in the $10 range, entrees in the $23-27 range, dessert... More

Quaint place, enjoyed atmosphere. Had roadted garlic and blue cheese appie which was tasty. Wine was very good, a chilean can't remember the name. It was a pleasant blend. My friend had a martini and was dissatified.
