The quality of the meal was a disappoinment. The server Vladimir was lovely as was the location and View but it was a futile attempt at having a good meal the New York steak was definitely a mistake and the octopus was chewy.

Went for the prix fixe brunch. It's a fantastic deal that includes 3 courses and all you can drink bloody mary, mimosa or sparkling wine. Had the cheese and charcuterie for a starter, followed by a well executed and tasty croque madame and a Mexican chocolate pudding that was ouststanding. My only complaint is our server was slow getting our order so we didn't have our first course until about 35 or so minutes after we sat down. They did pass out free mini muffins which held us over. Our main course came not too long after but there was another big gap for dessert, which we had to order twice.

Despite the slowish service, this is my new favorite brunch spot. The food was solid, the drinks flowed, and the atmosphere is great.

Without thought, my husband and I decided to go to dinner and Cafe Del Rey came to mind. The hostess was fantastic, anticipating our desires of seating and updating us on the restaurant latest since we last dined, very warm and friendly. She very much enjoys her job.

Our waitress was professional, helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. We had the salmon and sea bream and both with the sides were excellent, our starters were each a cesar salad, which was very fresh and tasty. Very Easy for us to quickly select wine from a good list of choices. Our overall experience couldn’t have been better. We’re so pleased Cafe Del Rey has only gotten better with the years. I wish I remembered our waitress’ name however, hopefully she tend us the next time. My husband commented, “ a fantastic meal and outing”.

I had lunch with my two grown sons. The service was outstanding and the food and menu were perfect. We loved the lobster roll,cerviche , salads and lamb burger.
I was also pleased to see several Paso Robles wines wines on their list.
We will be regulars next time. Really pleasant, pretty place for any event. The last time I was there we celebrated my birthday. It was great.

We have gone to this restaurant regularly over the years--every 5-6 weeks or so. Sometimes they have a lull in quality, this is one of those times. We'll give them a break for a year and see if they recover. The last time we were there (4/1/18), the fish was overcooked and the prices had been jacked way up. If you're going to charge $42 for sea bream, you better serve the a whole fish, not an overcooked measly filet. Any high-end Italian restaurant in LA, e.g. Valentino, wouldn't dare not do a whole branzino or sea bream, given theses are small fish. Our previous visit, the king salmon was also overcooked. This is very disappointing since this has been a good restaurant in the past.

Oysters were extraordinary, squid ink pasta was very good.
Most of the rest was good enough.
What knocked us out was the service.
We enjoyed one of the best waitresses we have ever had.
Her attention and communication skills were exactly right.
It made our evening.

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 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.

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!

Go with the Spanish octopus if you like seafood!

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.

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.
