This was such a poor dining experience that we decided to write a review. We stood waiting to be seated in the half full restaurant for 5 minutes with various servers, the hostess, and even the manager walking by and completely ignoring us. But, a single businessman walked up and was seated right away. The young, rude waitress told us to follow him. She and both other servers talked to him, asked him what he wanted, gave him a full pot of coffee and ignored us completely. We sat at a table by ourselves as they fawned over the businessman. We finally got some menus and coffee after the server had already taken the businessman's order. Then the manager seated a mom with 3 children right next to our table, even though the restaurant was pretty empty. The 2 year old coughed repeatedly in our direction and the children spoke in high pitched voices. We finally picked up our coffee and moved tables. The servers saw what was going on but never apologized. They whispered about us moving tables and generally made the whole situation seem like our fault. We will never return to this awful restaurant.

My girlfriend and I got seated immediately, but the wait time was a bit longer than usual to get served.

The eating area was not clean, wine glasses at about 5 of the tables. Was about 75$ for a burger, salmon and one app. I don’t drink alcohol so when I asked the bartender not only that night but the next for a lemonade with cut strawberries she look at me as if she wasn’t a bartender there to make drinks. Will never eat there again. Very dissatisfying

21 square Marriott, It might’ve been the time a day that we went but everything for us is perfect.

Jaclyn was amazing and gave great service with a big smile. People there were so nice and friendly and after we ordered our food dish you can see that we are doing OK. What a great guy.

I ordered pecan smoked bacon, scrambled eggs and cheese, rye toast, and the best crispy hashbrowns I have eaten in a very long time. You add a little Saracha and it doesn’t get any better than that! I also ordered a large glass of tomato juice, it was perfectly chilled and delicious.

If anybody is looking for a good breakfast even if they’re not staying at this place I WOULD highly recommend going to try it out.

Good food, nice atmosphere but the service need some serious improvement. Too many mistakes and too little initiative to make it right.
Seemingly confusing/misleading info were given about booking situation.

Christmas dinner, food was delicious, ambiance only ok because seated in plastic cold chairs. would sure like warmer temps and Christmas decor ambiance in dining room. We love the hotel and food and enjoy our yearly Christmas stay here. Would like rooms to be warmer. Christmas decor is lovely, fire pit area so nice, Elite breakfast room clean and food delicious. Friendly staff. Lovely hotel experience.

Pleasantly surprised. Limited menu but food was good. Torrance has so many great restaurants it is hard to compete but if you happen to be in the area already at the Del amo mall then this is a surprisingly great indoor/outdoor space. Would come for a quick bite if you live closeby but not a destination restaurant. The space would be fabulous for an event though.

Overall, the food was really good - wish they would have cut the tomatoes on the flat bread smaller so I could eat it without them falling off the bread :)

We arrived, the staff seemed lost, unorganized and unenthusiastic. When approached, we found our reserved table was setup for outside dining which was not requested or desired. We stated that inside seating was needed and we had to wait an additional 15 minutes due to no tables being clean. 8 tables that were viewable from the waiting area were vacant but dirty. Once we got seated, there was a line waiting of approximately 10 people with no waiting list provided. Luckily we had a reservation.
After we were seated, we promptly ordered food for our 2 year old child and requested for it to arrive first. While waiting for our food, we noticed the dirtiness of the restaurant. The floor, walls and back of booths had food on them from previous patrons. After 30 mins of waiting for our child's food to arrive, we left and went to another restaurant for breakfast. We spoke to the manager who did not seem proactive regarding our concerns.
I would not recommend this dinning venue to anyone until management figures out how to successfully manage their employees and restaurant.

It was basically OK...nothing great and the service was a little less than ideal...although, to be fair, they may have been short handed due to it being before Christmas and they had a big birthday party. Food was pretty good and I’d go back if someone was staying in the hotel.

I had read about this place in one of the magazines in one of the offices while waiting for my appointment; decided to try it out last night.

It is a bit pricy for the portion sizes and doesn't offer a lot of vegetarian options, which is why I'm holding back one star.

Our server Angela was friendly and responsive and offered great suggestions on what we may like. The charred cauliflower is a must try even though the portion size is miniscule. The salsa is pretty good too though I can probably make better guacamole at home. Do leave some space for dessert which should be the bread pudding; that, unlike other menu items, is huge and delicious!

I would recommend outdoor seating, preferably a table next to one of the fire heaters.

Space and atmosphere was great.....food was beyond disappointing. Drinks were good. A good place for a drink, not for dinner!

Website didnt indiczte there was a preselected menu. It was served family style, but kind of strange menu - pancakes, eggs benedict-only gave us 4 for a party of 5. Huh? Then there was salmon, chicken. Strange combination of food

This was by far the best place to have celebrated a very relaxed and cozy birthday. Casual attire. I requested a table outside with fire pit and was the best! Servers were very attentive. Live sport TV were inside but the glass windows allowed my guests to keep track of the games. Food was amazing and elegantly served. I would go back for a dinner and for another celebration.

Read an article recently in the Easy Reader that named 21 Square as one of the top 10 restaurants to visit in the South Bay. We said why not and gave it a try and really enjoyed it. Food was deliciously prepared. We were just looking for snacks after a movie so we tried the LYB Tatar tots. Absolutely yummy. We also had the cauliflower and Brussels Sprouts which did not disappoint. Both were very flavorful and tasty. Told our server we were locals which they clearly appreciate. So much so that they treated us to the desert sampler which was awesome. We finished our cocktails on the outside patio with an awesome fire pit. Great ambiance. We played with the bean bag toss and Jengo. On our way out we even stopped to play the sand hockey puck game (not sure that's the right name) in the bar area. Such a fun night. Great for groups or a date night just like we did. Enjoy! .
