It is always a madhouse here. The lines are long and the other shoppers can be very rude. If you have a cart, put something inside it and KEEP AN EYE ON IT. If I take my gaze off my cart for 30 seconds it gets stolen.
The salads at this place are good. If Culver City is hopping, then it can be hard to find yourself a table if you are with 3 or 4 people, but it's worth it. I would check the menu out online first, since you order at the counter there.
This is a good spot for a first date. The food is good and the atmosphere is nice. The plates the food comes on are really unique too. Miso braised short-rib melts in your mouth, and the burgers during lunch are famous.
I brought my mother and boyfriend here two days before Christmas when "movie night" was happening in the garden. Wow, what a terrific experience. I almost didn't go because it's up on a hill and I am a little scared of driving up hills, but my boyfriend drove and the ride up was not bad at all. You wind around and around the hill going up a grade, and when you get to the top the view is fantastic. We sat in the garden but next time I want a table inside overlooking the entire city. And the food! Homemade strawberry filled donuts, yum!!!! We decided to make this a Christmas tradition and come here every year.
I don't know much about tires myself, but the guys who work here are nice. Friendly service goes a long way and it is good to have a convenient place like this in the neighborhood when I've got a flat.
Some treadmills have been broken for over a year and not fixed. They break often and it takes months for anything to get repaired.
Many of the free weights are missing because people keep stealing them. Theft is such a problem at this gym, they made a rule that no bags can be taken into exercise areas. They gave me flack for having my purse with me!
The air conditioning doesn't work. In fact, their heater turns itself on in the summer, and the staff has no way to turn it off. They say they have "talked about this" for months but no solution has come. 24 Hour Fitness will not spend the money to fix some ongoing issues. People have gone running out of the building with inhalers and the ambulance has had to come for people who passed out from it.
The cops have show up on occasion to arrest people here. The lockers get broken into during the night. After dark they need an armed guard standing at the door.
Do not trust the two positive reviews this place got. You will notice those people signed up and gave only ONE review.... suspicious.
