The Best Restaurants in Los Angeles: Culver City Edition 

Have you been to Culver City? If you have not, make sure it is on the top of your list. The neighborhood’s dining scene continues to grow and develop, with a variety of phenomenal options. The buzzing city with movie-making history, will not disappoint you in its eateries, rooftops,  gastropubs, and cozy cocktail bars. Here are Qwil Luxury Apartments’ go-to restaurants in Culver City. 


Craft LA is rated as one of the best restaurants in Los Angeles. The restaurant is led by the renowned chef Tom Colicchio where you can enjoy his signature “what’s local is best” cooking style. In similar terms, Craft emphasizes farm-to-table dining and warm hospitality. One of our favorite restaurants in Culver City where you can enjoy Ahi Tuna Crudo and diver scallops on their private patio outside. 

Pasta Sisters 

The second location of one of LA’s best pasta spots. Most of the bowls are built on their own, where you pick your pasta and sauce. Our favorites are the pesto with tagliatelle and their bolognese with pappardelle. A perfect place to enjoy their patio, have a glass of red wine and you can never go wrong with freshly made pasta and sauce. If you are on a weekend adventure, make sure to get the carbonara, so good but it is only available on Sunday.

LA’s very own temple of Japanese food perfection. Founded and run by Michelin star chef: Niki Nakayama, a proud pioneer in the modern kaiseki tradition and she is constantly in the kitchen and checking on her guests. From the second you enter, the restaurant feels utterly personal, set in an attractive and neutral-toned dining room. The Palms spot serves a perfect 13-course kaiseki menu as well as 

Cafe Laurent 

A cute french corner spot located in Culver City. A traditional menu serving breakfast, brunch, and lunch. Our go-to meals to order are crepes, Croque Monsieur, the steak with truffle parmesan fries. Their outside patio transports you to the french riviera and almost makes us feel like we can travel abroad again.
