Lillie's Bistro & Garden


9400 Culver Blvd, Culver City
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Downtown Culver City always seems to be reinventing itself, but one place that never changes too much is the Culver Hotel. The historic space has been a neighborhood landmark since the 1920’s and holds more Hollywood secrets than most places in Hollywood—it’s just a shame that its lobby restaurants have always been lackluster. Feel free to add Lillie’s to that list. The newest name to take over the ground-floor space provides essentially what its predecessors did: a kitschy, Old Hollywood vibe, nightly live music, and extremely mediocre food. If you want to meet up with a friend and slurp oysters at the bar, you’ll leave content, but otherwise, there’s no reason for a full meal here. The large outdoor patio is a good spot for post-work drinks with a group of coworkers.
