Munchkins Restaurant is located in the Culver Hotel. They seem to be known by several different names. The name that is written above the establishment is Munchkins and that's what I usually go by. I have been here several times, both for lunch and dinner so it is appropriate that I write a few words about it.
When it initially opened, lunch specials were plentiful. You could get a hamburger, sushi and a drink for around seven dollars. This was very short lived and the hosts raised the prices almost 100% after a few weeks. This never goes over too well with the new patrons. The food for lunch was solid, the service solid as well. Their ventilation had problems in a few instances and the entire restaurant smelled of fish - not very pleasing . . . We came back for dinner last week with several friends. The atmosphere is quite nice here. Dark tones, with hints of red. Nice candles and nice decor. Everyone ordered different items, from sushi to hamburger to steak, salad, chowder, salmon . . what not . . . Service was a bit weird. We all received our food at very different times. As some were completing their meal, some were receiving it. We had to inquire about whether it would arrive at all. It was a bit awkward . . . We had varied staisfaction with the meal. Sushi was definitely not good, very chewy. Steak was solid as was the salmon. Salad was average. The chocolate soufflet at the end came to the table cold and everyone was disappointed. They should have called it cold chocolate cake . .
We had a good evening here thanks to good company and good conversation. The restaurant does not do anything for me though. Food and the service were lacking . . . I am not sure that I will visit it again. From my point of view it is not recommended . . . .
