We checked in for our reservation about 1:20.

We were not sat right away, we had to remind the host that our table, the one that was pointed out to us hadn't been cleaned in more than 20 min. We sat there another 15 min after the table was cleaned. Went back to let them know it had been cleaned and we needed to be sat. By this time is shortly after 2, and your host informed us the brunch was over at 2:30.
After being seated, we waited another 15 min just for someone to come over and greet us. We had to have one person stay at the table to communicate our drink order. We felt rushed. We were later told that they'd keep the buffet open until 3.

Nonetheless $800+ and horrible customer service later, we are not happy with our experience.
As a paying customer and consumer, as I'm sure you are, you would expect the same.

We had a delicious brunch on Easter and we got there early. They didn't tell us that the brunch buffet didn't start until 10 but that was ok. We didn't mind waiting though it was a bit chilly outside. Had to ask them to turn on the heaters. The service was a little lacking. Maybe they were short staffed? Had to ask for coffee repeatedly then had to ask for more cream while the coffee got cold. Other than that it was a beautiful day and the food was fab.

Cavatina is our favorite place in LA. It is inviting and truly a get-a-way from the busy atmosphere of Los Angeles.
We love to visit with close friends and family here at Cavatina where the staff makes us always feel like we are at home. Our granddaughter is always treated like a princess. We will continue to think of the Sunset Marquis and Cavatina as our home away from home.!

We had dinner here on Saturday night. It was our first time and we loved it. The most important part of a restaurant is the food and it was divine. We had the veg share plate to start and it was delicious and beautifully presented. For entree I had the scallops (nice size and well cooked) and my wife had the burger and she devoured it. We paired with a Napa white wine and it was exactly what we needed.
Overall a lovely place and we had a perfect dinner

Extremely disappointed with the food and service. What’s left? Ambiance? Who cares, I can find many other restaurants for that.
Went for the pre fix on Xmas day and service was included in the bill. Awful tasteless soup and worse over cooked bland scallops. Drinks were watered down and the service was equally dull - he basically just threw our drinks and food at us. Don’t waste your time here.

The restaurant was exceedingly busy for an early Friday evening and the number of servers was just not up to the crowd's size. We waited a long time to order, a long time to be served our dinner and a long time to get our check. Everything that evening was very good, except for the service.

Great atmosphere and environment would be ideal for special occasions and birthday dinners. Felt private and staff made experience feel unique. Good vegetarian options. However, food was pricey and portion sizes were small. Overall I enjoyed my experience and the taste of my food (heirloom tomato salad) and would return.
