Step inside Il Fornaio and take a culinary journey through Italy. Early mornings bring rustic, crisp crusted bread hot from the oven accompanied by the scent of fresh brewed espresso. During lunch and dinner hours, pastas and flavorful sauces simmer while meats and vegetables roast over hot coals. Bottles of wine from small, regional wineries are uncorked to complement the dishes, which have been crafted in the custom of Italy's chefs, bakers and homemakers. Il Fornaio means "the Baker" in Italian. This award-winning restaurant offers an authentic and unique Italian dining experience. Specialties include wood-fired rotisserie and grilled meats, poultry and game; housemade pastas; pizzas from an oak wood burning oven; fresh salads and housemade soups; a wide variety of desserts; and fresh baked bread made daily from scratch. Winner of the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence 2007.

"We never miss when we eat here. Our service was terrific, the food was excellent and the price was somewhat reasonable for what you get."

Chicago's rowdy Rush Street comes to Culver City in the form of a restaurant, bar and lounge. Executive chef Dave Northrup will focus on "bar-centric" dishes like buffalo chicken dumplings with blue cheese and fried shallot dressing, pulled barbecue pork sliders and Kobe pigs-in-a-blanket, plus grilled New Zealand lamb racks and brick oven-cooked pizzas.

"We always enjoy our time at Rush Street but for some reason, this one was better than normal. They had the Eat LA special and it was particularly good. My wife had the salmon with salad and desert. Great deal for the price."

Why do we call ourselves LG's Prime Steakhouse? Quite simply because PRIME is the very best by any standard. Prime steaks have the necessary marbling that imparts a unique combination of taste and texture which defines the ultimate steak eating experience. Owner Gail Greenberg presides over every detail to ensure that quality and service will exceed expectations. Serving only USDA prime beef, dry aged on the premises. Highlights from the menu include the "Jewel in the Crown" our 24 oz dry aged porterhouse, the enormous 32oz bone in ribeye, 4 and 8 bone colorado rack of lamb and fresh seafood. Winner of Zagats "best steak in town" award and a permanent fixture on Tom Horan's top ten list.

"For some reason, after eating here numerous times, it wasn't the same. We got seated in an empty room (the rest of the place had plenty of empty tables but i guess you have to spread the wealth to the other waiters). No one came to greet us for quite some time- then one person came, poured us water and left. Then, many minutes later, another (a waiter this time) came and greeted us, took our drink order and left. Then someone else came over to ask if we decided on our drinks. It took quite a while to get our wine and it was done without much fanfare. There was no personality attached to the service.
I love this place and plan to give it another try. I just hope this isn't a sign that it's going downhill."
