It was so nice to be back to Cavatina. The pandemic is no reason to stay away. The seating there is ideal for the "safe" time that we're in. The food, as always, delicious.

We loved the ambiance and a stroll through the legends of the Morrison Hotel Gallery. Our server was gracious and sweet, and the food was really outstanding in presentation and flavor.

There is no better spot to dine al fresco than Cavatina at the iconic Sunset Marquis Hotel & Villas. I have been a fan of this rock and roll hotel for over 30 years and the gardens have never looked more beautiful. The pasta is second to none and the casual ambiance and attention to detail in a Covid-safe environment makes it an ideal spot for a memorable dinner with friends or a loved one.

We went to Cavatina for our anniversary brunch and it was really spectacular. Yuriana took excellent care of us and even sent over some special unexpected treats to help us celebrate, and it made us feel so special. We were sat right by the water and the it was so beautiful and the food was exceptional. We will definitely be back! Also, we felt very safe as all the tables were very spread out in the open air. Thank you to Cavatina for the beautiful and memorable experience :)

Came here for our engagement dinner. Disappointed that the menu was mostly burgers and steaks - couldve went to a diner for those choices. Cocktails were really good and so was the pasta but expected much more.

Sunset Marquis is a hip spot no doubt. The COVID atmosphere of Cavatina is unfortunately a deal killer. We arrived an hour early for our reservation to relax and enjoy cocktails before embarking on dinner. The waiter, however, wasn’t having it and instead continually pushed us to order quickly so he could turn the table. He claimed he could not pour our wine after opening it, and could not open our large glass bottle of Voss. We did not experience these rules in any other restaurants while visiting the area. While these protocols are assumably coming from Managment, the waiter did nothing to present a relaxing and memorable dining experience which should also be required by Managment.

Absolute perfection. We loved this restaurant so much we went back a second night. The restaurant manager and the staff are incredible. So friendly and focused on customer service it is refreshing. And the food, wow. We had the short ribs the first night and the flat iron streak the second night and both of them were outstanding. Absolutely get the Burrata as a starter, it’s excellent. And for dessert their warmed chocolate chips cookies are better than my moms homemade, I swear.

Was my favorite place. HOWEVER this last time. Rude hostess, loud music, ruined that. Love my server. Hope their remodel Keeps what they used to have and not make it another loud bar scene that are a dime a dozen in this town. Was so disappointing.

Loved every minute of our experience at cavatina! All the staff working 10/30 from 1945-2130 went above and beyond for our time here. When walking in the staff outside the entrance were hilarious and asking if we needed anything. The hostess sat us down immediately. Our waiter was super nice and always checking on us. The food was amazing we had a few apps and had the pork tomahawk and the steak both were amazing. The chef even came out and checked on us! Love this place will def be back!

Well when considering looking for a place to go I relied on Yelp and other reviews! All I can say is that if you are going to take your significant other out for a romantic meal here, DONT, otherwise you may end up getting divorced! I dont know who would write a review thinking this place is in the least bit romantic!! There is NO anbience, a VERY limited menu, you are sitting on what is basically patio furntiure with not one hit of romantasism! Its actually a shame because there is a great space to create a great experience but they fall woefully short! If you are trying to attract customers you HAVE to a least make an effort. We WONT be back. Also, might help if there wasnt a pervasive smell of weed drifting into the restaurant!

The service was impeccable, the Restaurant Manager came to our table several times to check if we were ok.
The decor of the trees makes it a very special place to eat.
Both our choice of different dishes were very nicely prepared and delicious.
My wife was really happy.
We’ll be back soon and bring friends.

It was a very very poor restaurant and environment was very noisy due to construction.
We arrived at 12 noon time for brunch and we had to wait for the server.
All of the time there was only one table out there and it was us..
Two more hundred brunch did not worthy a penny we spent on at all!
Absolutely not recommend

The food and wine selection was exceptional. The hostess was not particularly friendly, but the waitstaff were. I had the Branzino and grilled peaches and it was so delicious paired with ZD Chardonnay. It was so delicious I plan to come back to have the same meal again. It would be nice if the owners could create a bit more ambience — maybe some soft moody music and a bit more decor and lighting and plants to liven up the space. Regardless, I will be back for the food!

We had a great time celebrating mother in laws birthday. But as a frugal person, it's not a good enough value because it was too expensive for what we got. If they had a better outdoor atmosphere, then I'd feel a bit more different. Well, at least my family had a great time, so that's more important.
