Diner Reviews
  • "Beautiful ambience, I love this hotel. Great variety of choices for brunch, everything was fresh and delicious. We had a large group and had a fun, leisurely time. Our servers were great at refilling Mimosas and taking away plates. The seafood display and crepes definitely stood out. Make sure to get valet parking ticket validated before leaving."

  • "Enjoyed the company of my dear friend, in celebrating her past birthday, and what a joy it was to take her to Cavatina's for the first time. She was thrilled with ambience, and being a vegetarian, the brunch menu had her salavating threw the entire meal!!!! It was my best kept secret but I am sharing it with all my friends that deserve to dine there. Cavatina is not for everyone, only those that deserve a classy place to dine, and a palet for gourmet dishes!!! Can't wait to return, to this heavenly dining experience. Thank You Cavatina :)"

  • "never knew this place existed. . . the setting is lovely despite the fact that the hotel looks worn and seems to need updating especially on the outside. the outdoor patio was lovely and quite busy. . in fact too busy since there was a private wedding party going on just inside with the doors wide open causing lots of noise and ruining the peaceful setting and ambiance. later the door to the private party was closed but we were ready to leave at that point. won't be rushing back!"

  • "We eat out a great deal and have little tolerance for poor service or bad food. I don't normally write reviews but this restaurant has outstanding service, and the food is absolutely fantastic. I have become increasingly appreciative of this chef's palate. We were fans of this restaurant before, but since the new chef took over we like it even more. He has brought a level of sophistication to the menu that is hard to find. With regard to service, it is always flawless. The entire staff never misses a step in the serving process. The manager has done a great job training the staff and always stops by to make sure we are absolutely satisfied. It is truly a wonderful experience and a great neighborhood gem."

  • "Cavatina is truly the most wonderful outdoor eating in LA. The setting is so beautiful and lush. It is so relaxing eating here - an oasis of food, drink and atmosphere. Tables are well spaced and you never feel crowded. Plenty of space for privacy- probably why so many music and film folks keep this spot a secret."

  • "A beautiful setting accompanied by a relaxed super friendly very serviceable staff. What a delight, from the walk through the lush garden and Koi Pond over the bridge, leading up to the friendly hostess, that offered us a choice of table, regardless of the fact that we were 2, she asked us if we preferred a bigger better positioned table. The menu has everything a foodie dreams of. (Angel), our excellent and courteous waiter, that saw that nothing was ever missing from our table. I can't wait to return!!!"

  • "We had such a great experience last month for my birthday that we went again for my SO's birthday last night. I cannot say enough good things about the changes in this restaurant. It was quite good before, but now it is absolutely spectacular! Our server Greg was appropriately attentive without being rushy/overbearing, and Jesse (manager/beverage manager) went above and beyond pretty much any other restaurant we've ever been to...and we like to eat! Thank you all for making his 40th so stellar, and the Flor Rose Brut was amazing! We'll see you soon!"

  • "Enjoyed the atmosphere and food was delicious. The service was lacking. Waiter hardly ever came around. Took a long time for him to ask if wanted another cocktail or more coffee. Would go again only because loved the food"

    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "I don't know even where to begin... The service was one if the worst I have yet to experience: the waitress who seemed to have everything on her mind except taking care of her tables was very rude and just did not care about anything. She forgot to bring us our appetizer. The food was ALL spicy as if to mask the nonexistent flavors. The meat was way too cooked and tasted horrible. Overall I sincerely would recommend going to McDonalds before going here. This place might have been a happening spot 20 or 30 years ago but they seem to be living off the residual stardom."

  • "Catarina is off the beaten path so you could easily miss it. But that would be a huge mistake. The ambience is fantastic - lush foliage, moonlit dining, and a tiled water feature. The food was even more impressive than the setting. They offer a creative menu of small plates, perfect for sampling and sharing with friends. The popcorn, homemade chips, brussel sprouts were among the most popular dishes for our group. My favorite dish was the steak with mustard chimichurri sauce. So refreshing and savory! Save room for dessert, though. You won't want to miss the brownie pot, cookies, and gelato."

  • "We've been here 5 times now, it's our favorite restaurant. Angel our server is the best, he really knows what to recommend and very friendly. The food is constantly evolving, our compliments to the chef. We will be back again and again!"

  • "Felt comfortable dining alone. Sat outside, friendly staff, good atmosphere, good ambience and noise level. Would recommend to other other solo travelers and couples/groups. A good find."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "A getaway in the heart of WEHO. AN escape from the hustle bustle of LA. Only thing to the contrary I would state- Don't order the steak. It's is the ONLY disappointment on the menu."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "I had read good reviews online, but was still surprised at how much we enjoyed this restaurant. The menu was creative, but not in a way that feels forced, the service was perfect (yes, perfect, including the valets out front), the location was attractive and comfortable. Maybe we just got lucky, because even the other customers were warm and friendly. Because we felt so good there, we ordered more than we normally would ("sure, let's have some oysters before the appetizers"), so it wasn't inexpensive, but it was worth every penny. Please don't go there, because I don't want it to get too crowded."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I was pleasantly surprised by how good the food was at Cavatina. In all the years I've spent dining on and around Sunset, I never knew about this place. The terrace is beautiful, and though we were too late for Sunday brunch, the spread looked fantastic and the lunch menu was great. Beef tartare, avocado bruschetta, and spicy mussels were stand outs. Turkey burger and fries were excellent. Ahi salad was a little stingy with the fish, and there is no pasta on the lunch menu, but this place is a great find."

  • "A great brunch buffet, fantastic food, wonderful ambience. Expensive. I'm glad my kids were paying."

  • "Cavatina was a last minute thought for a pre-graduation lunch with my family. While the food was great, I have to say the service left much to be desired. We didn't feel welcomed. My husband's order was wrong and the staff was not very apologetic about the situation, nor did they seem to care. We all waited an additional 20 minutes for my husband's meal to arrive. Nobody made an effort to remedy the situation, instead we sat there with empty iced tea glasses and cold meal. I've dined at Cavatina for breakfast before and had impeccable service, but this time I have to say I was quite disappointed and wished I went somewhere else."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "We loved this spot when it was "Restaurant," and the change in chef and menu have only made it better. The Brussels Sprouts are to die for! Who says that about brussels sprouts?! Wine was amazing, service was spectacular, and you cannot beat the ambience. It's like being on vacation right around the corner from your house."

  • "Cavatina is a most remarkable restaurant. Menu & presentation are outstanding --food absolutely delicious. The service is MOST IMPRESSIVE!! Obviously a well trained staff- waiters and bussers- as good, if not better than anyplace I have ever eaten - here or abroad The venue and setting are gorgeous. You definitely feel away from it all even though the Sunset Strip is less than 100 yards away. It's also a spot you will see celebrities, at least those trying to avoid the limelight, as this place is hidden and hard to find. We saw Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey!! The outdoor / indoor setting is stunning. So for great food, great service and an incredible setting- CAVATINA is it!!"

  • "Overall experience was better than decent but not totally blown away by the food. The ambience and location are spectacular with a garden location, but the apps were better than the main courses. If you go, you must try the tuna tartare and deviled eggs apps as this were quite memorable and stood out in a multi day gastro tour of LA. Main dishes were the house burger which was deliciously moist and juicy but overpowered by the horseradish sauce. Salmon dish was better a with a multi dimensional approach to flavors/ textures using grapefruit. Cool place."

  • "I am a bit of a restaurant snob, so I generally write critical reviews. I rarely write positive reviews. However, after multiple trips to this restaurant, I simply have nothing but good things to say about Cavatina. The service is always outstanding! Having consistently excellent service does not happen at too many restaurants. Since the chef introduced the new menu, I have struggled with what to order. I was very skeptical about the menu at first. There are many unusual items on the menu & the selection of entrees is limited. But after trying many things I am now a believer in this chef. Every item I have ordered has been a pleasant surprise. Do not be deceived by the simplicity of the menu. The dishes are quite sophisticated. Well done!"

  • "I really love this restaurant's location - set inside the Sunset Marquis, the patio dining is fabulous, and service is top-rate. I enjoyed my dinner immensely, but I'm hoping they improve their appetizer list. I celebrated my birthday here, and had a truly memorable and wonderful experience. One of the few restaurants I've been to recently that you can still enjoy a nice conversation over a great meal. Valet only, because of its' proximity to Sunset, and reservations are recommended. "

  • "I have been to this restaurant space before, but the new chef and menu is really incredibly lovely, and I very much enjoyed our meal. Our server was excellent, and we were able to relax and enjoy our meal without feeling pressured. The noise level was moderate, but there is water cascading under the terrace which also adds to the ambiance of this restaurant! I loved it. I would definitely go back, and definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a truly beautiful dining experience."
