Food was great, but the service was Excellent!!!
We come for Special Occasions, for Breakfast and this time was just as great as the past! This is why we keep coming back!
The service was very good, Juan was very professional!
It was so wonderful to go out to dinner again after a year at home. Staff were attentive to our requests and everyone enjoyed their meal. We were able to eat outside comfortably.
We went to check out the resort post Covid and see how the food was and it was below our expectation unfortunately
Just opened up indoors for spaced out dining. With tables spaced out so far apart the place looked odd and deserted.
Our waiter was very good. Helpful, but not overly helpful. A very nice young man.
Great food , great server
Starter and sea bass meal was good. Vegan pasta was terrible
It was good but over priced. We should have been for breakfast.
Absolutely delicious food.
It was our first time there, and I can’t wait to go back.
even though we had a resevation- waited 40 minutes for a table- food and service both terrible and slow. Menu advertised with Brunch has not been in place since Covid a year ago-
We really enjoyed our breakfast at Catalina Kitchen. Aside of the beautiful weather on Sunday, the service was excellent and the food tasty. Would recommend dining there to friends and look forward to returning. Thank you
Michelle is awesome! We’ll come back again because of her!
My husband and I love this spot! We were a bit disappointed there were no fresh oysters and the menu was limited!!! Probably will not return until menu has been upgraded.
Great food & great service!! Always LOVE dining there!! ❤️
Always enjoy going back to Catalina Kitchen - very relaxing atmosphere and while menu is simple, it is good value for money. Usually lots of families with kids so if a bit of children's noise is a bother for you, would not advise. Excellent list of cocktails.
I’d been here before years ago, but not during the pandemic and was pleasantly surprised that they had all the tables spaced out and plenty of room to sit and relax. The food is definitely not the draw here, but the drinks were really good, I had 2 bloody Mary’s and they were GOOOOD! The views and ambiance is what this place is known for and it definitely did not disappoint. Absolutely beautiful weather and beautiful views and the waitress let us just chill and relax for like 3 hours drinking and eating and talking. Overall this was a great experience.
Food was underwhelming given the price. The salad was delish and fresh. Burger came out rare/medium rare...girlfriend asked for medium and it was too bloody for her to eat so she politely asked for a new one. It came out burnt to a crisp. Completely inedible. Maybe it was a rough day for the chef. They took the burger off the bill which was nice bc we had to pick up pasta on the way home for her.
Good choices as well as great food preparation. A little bit pricy
It was my birthday
Seems loud, good choice of food, I ordered an appetizer to be followed by an entree but they brought my entree too soon, making me not able to eat the appetizer while still warm. Asked for a martini with a twist and the server brought it with olives and walked away before I could correct her, when I ordered the second martini, I told her again and this time it was correct, the people picking up plates were asking to take my paltes away before I was finished with my meal, as if they needed the table, though I would have better service aftere spendin $125.
My guest and I enjoyed a delicious breakfast, thank you. I appreciated the phone call the day before our reservation to alert me that the patio would be closed due to some repair work. While disappointed that we could not be seated outside, we still enjoyed a beautiful view and delightfully friendly, attentive service from our waiters/servers. The food was delicious and the room beautifully appointed.
This review is for their Sunday breakfast buffet. I've been here a few times before but this time the selection was drastically limited. I'd be fine with the selection being limited as long as each item available (or at least some of them) are good. Quality over quantity can work. But it was not the case here. Even though I was paying $70 per head, I had little desire to go back for seconds. Servers and staffs were the saving grace here as they were very pleasant and friendly.
Great spot to spend lunch and dinner with friends and family. The staff is very nice and willing to help with anything you ask for. I will come back soon
Enjoyed the both a'la carte and Saturday buffet with our group of 7. Reservations went smoothly-beautiful table prepared. Wait staff was very attentive and friendly. Heard raves on buffet, but the corned beef hash was tough, and a disappointment. Definitely would recommend- beautiful setting and otherwise, good food.
Friday night is buffet only. Didn’t bother to tell us that menu was not an option. Meat selection was extra well done scraps. Salad offerings were not as good as McDonald drive thru offering! Deserts were limited and had been cut earlier in day. Over priced, under poured wine by glass! At $75 per person a rip off! At $25 per person it would be closer to fair value. Very disappointed after spending close to $600/night for room!
Our server was amazing! Food was good, ambiance was very nice. Lovely day to celebrate a birthday of a friend.
Indoor music was loud. Ordered crab legs. They were delicious however served on too small rectangular plate, legs were touching tsble, yikes! No secondary plate for used shells or proper crab eating utensils were served. When I asked for them 2 staffers did not know what I meant. Suggest enhanced training of chefs, servers, and bussers and more mellow volume and selection of music. We were there for romantic evening and it was disappointing.
Good food, but the inside section was noisy and too warm. Good service , but expensive for what you get.
Our server, Lauren, was great overall, but she did have to deal with a bunch of mistakes from those around here, such as:
No lemon with the water after asking three times
Salad came with previously unmentioned parmesan to our guest who is allergic to cheese
Mashed potatoes came with cheese after same guest had been assured it could be left off
Broccolini came with garlic after guest had been assured it could be left off
Out of swordfish by 7:00 p.m.
Out of vanilla ice cream by 8:30 p.m.
Manager did replace potatoes and broccolini and comp that one main course and four desserts, which was appreciated.
Our waiter was either too busy but he was not very attentive. We got an appetizer and used up all of our bread and asked for more and 15 minutes later we asked someone else to bring us the bread. There were four of us and three of the main dishes were served, and then mine was served approximately five minutes later. I’ve had better experiences at Catalina kitchen and we were all disappointed
Food was just okay. Seafood boil was cold, pasta in chicken parmigiana was overcooked, pasta in lobster Mac and cheese was under cooked and the rice on the sushi was hard. The seafood buffet before the change was much better. Had we known it was liked this we would have chosen Vegas Buffet. Luis was an excellent waiter.
Nice place to go with a great outdoor space! Food is okay, but nothing to write home about!

Very, very nice staff members. No. 1 service.
Food is great.
I have to respect all members, for they respect their jobs and professional service.
I live in this area. I am so glad to have these people here to spend time with.
Honest, I am a bit surprised. It is people that make the world different. Thanks.
We keep trying it again to see if the food gets any better and to our disappointment, it does not. The flatbread pizza is basically a thick pizza bread with some stuff on it. The quality of the food is not good and the prices are too high. There are only 2 draft beers and they charge $15 for a glass of chardonnay, which they only have one choice of. Living in PV for 20 years, it's a shame that Terrenea really only caters to Corporations who book events, etc there.
Delightful setting with good food and high prices
We should have made our Saturday morning reservation for an earlier time than 11:30 so we could enjoy the buffet more leisurely. The food and service were very good.
This restaurant is overpriced for the selection of food offered. If offers upgrades such as king crab and lobster for additional cost. The location is very nice.
