We have dined at Cavatina many times and know that the service can at times be slow. However, this time it was terrible. We had 7:30 reservations, (3 of us) no one took our drink order until about 7:45, we ordered the delicious potato chips at the same time. The chips came quickly and the drinks fairly fast too, however, our waiter seemed to disappear and we finally caught his attention around 8:00 so that we could order our entrees. My husband was the only one to order a starter and he got it about 10 min later, however by 8:30 we had not yet received the rest of our meal. We stopped the waiter around 8:35 to ask where our food was, he apologized and said he had been asking for it and told us it would take about another 10 min. He did then bring my husband a glass of wine on the house. We still had not received our food by 8:50-8:55 so we got up from the table and walked over to the hostess to tell her we were tired of waiting for our food and were leaving. (The other two parties who arrived at the same time as we did or a little later had already finished their dinners). The hostess got the manager and he came over to apologize to us, said he was so sorry, that this had never happened before and he understood how upset we were. We actually did offer to pay for what we had and he said there was no need to do so, covered the valet parking for us, gave us his card and asked that we please come back another time so he could make it up to us. I'm not sure we will be back, although we do love the ambiance (and the potato chips).
I believe that part of the problem with the delay of our meals was due to the fact that they had a private party in the other room. However, they should have either had more help or informed us that there would be a delay in service.

I have been to Cavatina multiple times for the Sunday brunch buffet. We had a group meeting up this past Sunday and to our surprise, the BUFFET NO LONGER EXISTS! We still had a fine time, but it was quite disappointing that this aspect has been changed :(

Starting from the ambience of the location with waterfalls and foliage to the Restaurant Week three course lunch to the great service, all total up to be an extraordinary experience. I have a business lunch and my client was overjoyed about conducing a meeting under these great circumstances.

The food and service was excellent, they’ve created an atmosphere of style comfort and quiet with delicious food.

The only challenge is when you valet at the Sunset Marquis Hotel the valets try and rip you off by asking to pay them cash to park your car. The valet wanted $20 cash to park my car but when I went to the restaurant they said with a validation parking only $10.

So I got my receipt validated paid $10 and the valet demanded that I pay him $20 before he gave me my car back. I went back to the front desk and explained what happened and there was a big discussion around parking the valet once realized he was exposed, said OK $10 is fine.

Bottom line. Great restaurant, great atmosphere but hotel valet is that try and take your money

Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and gave us great recommendations to try. We ordered 4 different entrees(split among 3) and dessert. Everything was delicious. My husband and are not sushi fans, but we would go back and try it again.

The food was spectacular. The burrata salad with fresh peaches and figs was revelatory. Everything you’d expect from great Cali cuisine. And the Caesar salad was like having it for the first time. The individual leaves that you can eat as a finger food. Wonderful.
The venue could use a bit of an umph. As director of design fir luxury hospitality projects I understand the desire to preserve the history and character of this historic hotel. But the dining area could use a bit of s makeover. Maybe new FFE at least.

An LA classic that I keep coming back too. Quiet, romantic and tucked away, yet smack dab in the middle of frenetic WeHo, most people I bring here have no idea it exists and exit raving about it.

Went to Cavatina for my birthday and it was exactly what I wanted. We sat on the terrace, which was lovely and chill. It was a quiet enough we could talk to each other in our group, but not so quiet we could hear other people's conversations at nearby tables. The food was delicious, one of my friends has already demanded we go back so she can get the same dish. They also covered the dessert for my birthday, which was a nice surprise.

Lovely oasis-like setting. Gracious service. But less-than-stellar food. The trademark potato chips were cold and soggy. The Caesar salad was over-dressed. The porcini fettuccine was over-cooked and over-sauced, and had more common mushrooms than porcini mushrooms. Even the bread was average — like a store bought baguette. The food did not match the stellar setting.

The hostess and waiters were very kind, however waiters take so long to show up. The food is good. The mezcal margarita and tequila margarita were terrible, they need to improve the drinks for people that hang out on Friday nights to drink. The lighting in the restaurant bother if you are in a date night or used to night scene, too bright right above the tables.

Best kept secret of West Hollywood/Beverly Hills, and significant part of the history and culture of the area. This place functions as an institution set for perfection from the Valet, doorman, host, server, and chef, to the manager. Niched in a peaceful tropical looking area with beautiful landscaping, you feel romanced and welcomed immediately.

The service has uniformly been excellent every time we go there. The food and wine is great, top to bottom, so, just pick anything on the menu, and you will not be disappointed. The atmosphere is friendly and lovely. We had a great time talking to the very nice, funny and knowledgeable manager.
