Rivabella or Culina?

You all gave me some great suggestions on upscale places to go for a birthday celebration. So hard to decide, but leaning towards Rivabella or Culina. Can you share your thoughts on both places if you have been to either one?

  1. Based on 1 time at each restaurant, I would spend my restaurant dollars at Culina. I felt the integrity of the kitchen was more genuine there. I also loved the feel of the interior space. Enjoy, wherever you sup.

        yes. I agree with all that. the kind of customer service I would expect at a 4 seasons too. don't hesitate to call ahead and let them know special occasion or any preference re seating/special dishes etc.
