Service was at the finest level I have ever experienced- from the front desk to our departure, which even included cookIes left by the valets. Complete customer satisfaction is the ultimate goal of every employee, including a table visit from the chef.
Looking forward to my next visit and another memorable evening5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWaitpeople Make A DifferenceWhile this restaurant has great ambience, good food and presentation and is a fun dining experience it was our waitperson who made the difference! She was playful, accomodating and enthusiastic!
Kudos to her and I wish I could remember her name!!!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely, leisurelyTook friends to a late Friday lunch and it was lovely and leisurely. When I went online to check the menu, I saw that if I registered online, Cafe del Rey would give a free wine flight to each person at lunch. It was an added treat to a very nice lunch, and our server was accommodating and terrific.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMVisitors from out-of-townVisitors from out-of-town invited me to dinner and asked me to pick a spot on the water. I hadn't been to Cafe del Rey in a while, but had enjoyed it in the past. We got an early start and were seated at a window table, overlooking the moored sailboats in Marina del Rey and the channel beyond. The sun set as we dined, and the view of the ever changing light was perfect. My friends had a beet salad followed by sea bass, and I opted for the small Caesar salad and seared scallops. All the food was well prepared, with imaginative seasonal accompaniments. Service was courteous and attentive, but never overbearing. Our waiter knew the menu and, when asked, made sound suggestions. We were never rushed, and could comfortably converse.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat cafe!I invited an important friend from Japan. The starters and the bread are great. Servers are almost men and they are polite.Overall Cafe is great. We chose it as a good spot around LAX area.
Um.. it was a bit noisy place but ambiance was great. Google map did not correctly indicate the place. Please inform them about it.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMNice view, excellent food,Nice view, excellent food, excellent service. We had the prix fixe brunch on Sunday. Had a very nice time!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great, distinctiveAlways great, distinctive food and excellent service (never stuffy, not hovering, always helpful and good humored).4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMEast-coaster regular at this gem!I am actually an east-coaster who travels to LA a lot on business. Invariably, I end up staying at LAX my last night to get the 6am flight out. It has become my routine to escape to Marina del Ray the last night for a relaxing dinner. With only a 10 minute drive, it is a completely refreshing experience at Marina, made more special by Cafe del Rey. The last trip, I watched a guy propose (on bended knee) at the next table. This time was my first for lunch with a colleague. Steven was our server and he was personable and professional. We tried the sampler entree special - CDR has a fancier name that I cant recall, but it is essentially a big square plate with four smaller squares - tapas style but for one. Amazing!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBottomless mimosasThe mimosas kept on coming! Pretty view of the marina. Good was pretty good, not amazing but pretty good. Well worth the price.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing and fantasticSimply fantastic. Went for Easter brunch. Amazing food. Amazing view of the yachts. Best waitress I've ever had.

A suggestion: too much pastry in the strawberry/rhubarb tart; this should be reduced.3/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a beautiful restaurantThis is a beautiful restaurant at our own local gorgeous marina. Also, we saw Kareem Abdul Jabbar last Sunday !2/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe invited another coupleWe invited another couple to celebrate Valentine's Day.

They offered a prix fix menu with a good variety. We were offered champagne and the ladies got a rose. Food and service was excellent. Senior staff pitched in to serve on this busy night, an excellent sign of a well run establishment.2/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOur favorite server AndreaOur favorite server Andrea was not working but Tatiana was amazing....thank you!
