    My wife and I decided to treat ourselves to a staycation in the Del Mar area. We came across the Marriot in Del Mar which was a prime location since it was in proximity of other shopping, dining, and beach areas. We became hungry one evening and didn't feel like driving anywhere, and ended up eating at the Arterra located in the lobby of the Marriot. Upon our arrival we were greeted by our very cordial host, Chris, who was very welcoming and provided plenty seating options depending on our mood for the evening. Chris provided us a very pleasant table for my wife and I. There was upbeat vibe since there was a live musician during our visit. There were plenty of food options on the menu. Our compliments to chef, Ron, who was able to cook up some delectable dishes including: the duck; cheese board; and pear salad. My wife and I shared most of the food and cleared our plates entirely. The drinks were very invigorating as well. Overall we had a pleasant experience and will definitely eat at the Arterra the next time we're in town.

    Not what I would consider a great sushi spot, there was one chef on a Saturday night who could not prepare what was offered on the main menu. Service was poor. I would not recommend nor ever go back.

    We certainly had the absolute best experience and meal. I was not expecting the food to be that great! We both selected the half chicken dinner, it was superb! The chicken was very tender and seasoned just right! I can honestly say the potatoes were the best I ever had. We were seated in a back facing booth and ambience was relaxing and cozy. The service was fantastic, we seated right away and checked on several times. Our food was served hot, which I loved! What can I say, everything was awesome!!

    Met up with some friends from a volunteer organization we’d been in together and who I hadn’t seen in person in a while. The dining experience here was enjoyable. Hadn’t realized it was in a hotel and even though I had validated my parking, I still wound up having to pay. Just a heads up!

    We have not eaten here since before the pandemic. The decor has been redone, and there is a new executive chef and chef de cuisine. The food we ordered was very good - one dish was recommended by the chef de cuisine, who had created it. It was sea bass with crispy skin that was excellent. We had oysters - fresh and delicious. a couple different salads - wedge of lettuce with pimientos, olives and blue cheese dressing and the farm fresh salad - both excellent. Raviolli a little underdone and short ribs good.

    Always a quiet choice for lunch with a nice atmosphere. Today’s entree salad was only fair. The added protein (chicken) was so overcooked that it tasted like shoe leather. Usually this is not the case.

    this is an awesome place to show your non-vegan friends how good plant based food can be. I think after this meal we actually had a convert .. someone who was hesitant to give up dairy cheese despite knowing its bad side effects. We ordered 5 items and there was not a morsel left among the 3 of us eating.

    Wow, we had Mother's Day brunch and it was Delicious! The lobster bisque soup was my favorite, but everything I tasted was so good. Everyone in my party agreed. I didn't know it was a buffet, but it was a nice surprise (need to update their website). Best brunch I've had in a long time!
