BAD FOOD, OVERPRICED – Dont believe the reviews. This is not Mexican food.The chicken mole was horrible. The chicken was dry, hard and tasteless.The mole sauce had to come out of a can. The carnitas were burnt,dry and no flavor. the beans were terrible. Do not waste your time or money this food is not worth it. My friends and i wiil not be back.

It's Now Closed. – Updated menu is now Mexican! We saw the news on EaterLA & walked over for happy hour.

Best deal in town. $5 handmade margaritas & $2 tacos. Also other great happy hour choices. Great food, drinks, service & room after work.

Also Orlando the bartender is the best.

Fake 5 star rating reviews – If you read closely you'll understand that the people comenting here and giving 1 Star ratings are actuall real customers and the ones rating 4-5 stars are obviously the owners!!!

I mean come on, how stupid do you guys think we are...it is your own fault that you stink and still you are trying to convince customers that you are that damn great , 5 Stars...

They used to be good at the beginning but look what happened over the past year to year and a half,, they completely stoped caring about their customers. And ...the patio

Oh boy, this patio is just soo depressing, who ever came up with the design?? Did you guys design this and think..yeah, this is awesome!

Seriously with all the money you took from us you could have invested it into the patio. You guys just plain, stink...

Please let us know where you are going to close so we can come and celebrate..

i love duck and apparently so does WILSON – my husband and i love duck

always looking for it, when we go out.

well we show up to wilson, with no ressie, but were sat after a few.

we see on their menu it says duck carpaccio............UH, YEAH!

f*ckin fabulous. we each ordered it!!

we were really impressed with this young chefs menu. Gotta say, really impressed

we actually went back a few days ago again, ordered the house made pasta's, they have the most outrageous olive oil they use to finish most dishes, and the flavor of really good olive oil, actually is well, alarming, when you realize what we as foodies are used to, man the professionals get the good stuff, don't they. really fun , creative menu

VERY poorly done and overpriced – I have to say, I eat out a lot and this is the first time I've ever felt compelled to write a review. After hearing rave reviews from a friend and seeing the creative upscale menu on their website, I was excited to try this place. Everything on the menu SOUNDS great - ingredients like diver scallops, charred octopus, duck carpaccio. We tried a number of small plates on the menu, and the food ranged from mediocre to just plain AWFUL. The duck might have been good, but it was so coated with strong gorgonzola that you couldn't even taste it. The octopus dish was bland and so soaked with grease that my stomach hurt afterwards. It really seemed like the chef didn't have a clue what he was doing. Add mediocre ambience and service, and I was left feeling pretty cheated after the amount of money we spent on the meal. Seriously, I'm a food lover and usually find something to like even if a meal is not spectacular, but this was just BAD. There are SOO many great foodie spots in Culver City. There's no reason to waste your money here.

PROS: creative menu

CONS: AWFUL food, mediocre ambience & service, very overpriced for the quality

i had bone marrow for the FIRST time and it was AWESOME – i have been going out to eat in los angeles for many years, always looking for the next great anything!

My mom and dad go to wilson in culver city once a week, so i finally tried it, well...............

myself and my neighbor ate the greatest food! the menu was cooler than s*it!!!

Small plates, soup, salads, and a la carte items (which are just that, and meant to mix and match with the small plates).

The prices were soooo good for the times especially, i got a nice warm blend of olives for 5 bucks,

a lush, spicy mix green salad with apple, pears, gruyere for 8 bucks.

i was really impressed with my parents for knowing about this place already, and equally proud that they call this place their local hangout, BRAVO to everyone involved, (incl. my folks) really, definately GOOD TIMES.

Good food, but overpriced; AWFUL service – Located in Culver City near Father's Office and other good restaurants, my friends and I thought that Wilson looked promising. We sat down, but didn't receive water for at least 15 minutes even after we had ordered our food! After finally getting water, the waiter rarely came to refill our glasses. My food did not arrive with my friends' plates, but came 10 minutes later. Also, when we asked for an extra plate and extra sauce, it again took much too long. Overall, I enjoyed the food, but it was overpriced and the service was horrible. I would NOT recommend this restaurant.

Cold Sauce crappy service-the other bad reviews here aren't wrong – So I thought I would give this place a shot even though I had read some pretty bad reviews on here....I had thought that it couldn't be that bad but unfortunately-This place lived up to them. So disappointing that I am not going into the details and waste my breath. This place just was not good. Period.

best scallop i have ever had – i had the best sea scallop of my life, they were huge and perfectly cooked, the sauce was a parmesan fondue, to die for, really interesting menu, and really reasonable prices, 2 of us ate like kings!

really great
