Great food and service
CAFE DEL REY HAS A CREATIVE AND TASTY MENU. tHE SEAFOOD IS FIRST RATE AND ON THE OTHER HAND THEY HAVE EXCELLENT STEAKS.
Good Food,Good service
very nice for special occasion
Cafe del Rey is one of our favorite local Marina restaurants. We have spent many enjoyable evenings there. The food is superb, the menu is enticing and the service and ambiance are first rate.
Service, food: lamb chops, chicken, mussels/ink pasta; all were very delicious! Our server, Jennifer ? knew everything about all the dishes and the wines also-very informative without sounding like a recording . Sunday, 3-11-18, 545pm reservation. The handcrafted drink 'Pina something' was yummy. This was our first visit but Definitely will be back.
I enjoyed my dinner there, a lovely place to catch up with an friend.
Very good, though it got a bit noisy at the end due to a large group nearby
Awesome! Great scallops.
I was pleased w/my lunch choice, but my friend sent hers back as being inadequate.
But, the manager was quick to come to our table and insist that her satisfaction was his main purpose in life and he quickly made some suggestions and she was happy w/the replacement choice.
So, our lunch was enjoyable.
Nice place, nice location, excellent food, very friendly service, simply too noisy,
what a pity!!
Over-priced and bad food!
This was one of our favorite restaurants years ago when we used to live in Southern California. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to celebrate a friend's 60th birthday there since we were in town. The food is still as amazing as ever and our waiter was so attentive. Loved the view of the Marina from our table.
I was bummed that they don't serve their famous chocolate souffle any more. I always ordered that for dessert whenever we dined there. Oh well!
My third visit to the Cafe del Rey. And the food continues to excel and the view across the marina just adds to it.
Go with the Spanish octopus if you like seafood!
Great restaurant.....great service.....great view......great food.....
Easy parking, friendly greeting and quick seating with res, excellent food except lamb burger was unevenly cooked and great dessert!
A lovely dinner experience. Would absolutely return on a future visit to LA. The octopus was a big hit at our table. The salmon was also excellent. Lovely environment and quiet enough to enjoy conversation.
Cafe del Rey has remained consistently good over the years due to an excellent wait staff, caring and concerned management and excellent food. With its unbeatable views and welcoming ambiance, it remains one of my favorite restaurants.
Just an overall great place near the marina water front. Good food, service and atmosphere. Was VERY loud when we arrived, but quickly dialed down which was a good thing. Not a huge extensive menu but tasty choices.
The fish is top notch. Ordered salads that never came.
Delicious food, great view, good service. All around great experience.
We had a great time. Food was delicious and service was excellent. Thank you to the staff for treating us so well!
Cafe del Rey is a wonderful restaurant, in a beautiful location. Our meals there are always delicious and the staff are very friendly and efficient. The valet parker is great! Thank you, Cafe del Rey!
This is a "premium" quality seafood restaurant. All the fish on the menu was fresh and wild, and the preparations were just perfect. When you want a healthy alternative to those chain "fish" restaurants. this is a go-to place! Also, the service was so personalized and wonderful, the General Manager came over to welcome us to the restaurant just after being seated, and checked back with us several times through the evening. He even came over to talk to us about their fish selections, where the fish were from, defining the term "wild" and in particular when it comes to salmon and tuna, how that term is being mis-used (they did not label their product as wild) but he explained that these were not "farmed fish" either.
Wonderful dinner. The food is very good. Our server was very helpful as my friend has some food allergies and our server was very thorough and thought ahead to what options were available for her.
We were three long time friends celebrating a birthday. The atmosphere is lovely, the service was outstanding. I have some food allergies and they were very conscientious about making sure my food was free of the allergens. The food was unique and delicious. My only concern is that you may remove items from your order but to replace an item you have to pay extra.
Food was decidedly average, in fact rather disappointing.
Average food served tepid. The sauce was bland, not even sure there was one. I am easy to tempt and even the dessert menu was uninspiring. All and all; a good place to miss.
The noise level on a Saturday night is a bit too much for conversation. We enjoyed the view and our server was very good. The food was good but it could be a bit more exciting. We heard about the layers of flavor the chef likes to use but it was hard to find them. Presentation was lovely but wanted a bit more taste. Portions are very small.
We really appreciated the personal service we received. It was our wedding anniversary, and the manager and staff came by more than once to be sure we were satisfied with everything. My daughter had called ahead to contribute her credit card for part of the bill, and our menu said, "Happy Anniversary from your Daughters". I thought the personalized menu was really nice, and a keepsake for us. We were also treated to a glass of champagne for the occasion, and dessert as well. Very nice, and a great restaurant for a special occasion.
Great server and fabulous food. I had the octopus special
Very nice experience from the time I walked in the door.
The cold apps were good. The scallops were good, but have had better. The steak didn’t have much flavor and would have loved a starch with it.
The service was slow and the waiter barely checked on us.
The food was great! Nice view of the harbor boats and loved the live music
Beautiful location and view, great friendly service, excellent food!
Love it. Always good. A very classy place with great views of the harbor.
Three scallops!! Manager added a few more to main course
This is part of Tavistock Restaurants and not up to their standards by virtue of it being nearly empty on a Friday. The wine was overpriced, the server obsequious, the food also overpriced while mediocre. Even the managers were overbearing as they “dropped by” and interrupted conversation more than 3 times. This time interest, it’s them keeping busy. They should learn from Napa Valley Grill how to run a sister restaurant.
Excellent, responsive service; great food; friendly staff; perfect ambiance.
Café Del Rey one of my favorite go to's. Quality is always dependable and lovely environment on the water.
The welcome was warm and accommodating. We first gathered in the bar where live music was great, and not too loud. The drinks were well made. We were able to delay our seating and enjoy the bar. I had checked the box on Open Table that we were celebrating a birthday, but I didn't expect the menus to have "Happy Birthday" printed on the top. Nice touch in line with many others including a gluten free version of the amuse bouche for one person in our party. The service was great. The waitstaff seemed to appear right on cue. It was one of those great meals where we looked up and hours had passed. The truffle pizza is worth the drive alone. The tapenade made of green olives was bright and delicious and came with foccaccia. I had scallops which were beautiful and delicious. The birthday cheesecake was one of the best...maybe goat cheese in it. And the valet left a small packet of cookies in my car with the restaurant logo. Another touch that made me feel well taken care of. Highly recommend.
