The Shut-Up-and-Give-it-to-Me-Quick Version:
Good not great.
I expected more; while there were a few highlights, I wouldn’t go back.
The I-Like-to-be-Wrapped-Up-in-All-the-Details Version:
The Cannibal is Culver City’s newest restaurant and their second location (New York is their first). There is a very manly vibe when you walk in and the restaurant is full of the male species – it is after all a meat and beer place. It was packed when we went (Saturday) and the chatter can get quite loud. While it’s a plus that they took advantage of the space, depending on where you sit it can feel cramped. We were at the bar and there was constantly employees running into our chairs or knocking into our purses. Everyone was very nice, but it took a while to get any sort of service (order food, get an extra napkin, bring the bill).
