Good food, great value, and excellent service. We dined on Thursday evening and enjoyed the four-course prefix with wine pairing. It was our anniversary celebration and we enjoyed our dining experience very much.

I often go to Trump's to eat. The bar service was the worst that I have had there. We actually went to the bar and asked for our drinks twice. Something has changed. The place was not full.
On a positive note the food and ambiance was super.

Went to Cafe Pacific for a birthday celebration. Beautiful drive along the coast of the Palos Verde Peninsula. Before dinner, took a pleasant walk on a path to the water's edge. The location is spectacular: great view of the fairway, ocean, and Catalina Island. Requested and got a window view. Gorgeous sunset sky. Quiet atmosphere. Service by our waiter was *outstanding*; very friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Small disappointment that the foie gras was taken off the menu. Definitely exceeded expectations overall, and well worth the visit. Will visit again for afternoon tea and/or Sunday brunch.

As usual, the food, ambience, and service were superb. Our server, Anthony, spoiled us to the hilt. However, it was 5 PM on a Friday evening, and the noise from the bar was unbearable. (We like to dine in peace and quiet, which is one of the reasons I love this exquisite dining room) I did not deduct any stars from my five star rating because I should have realized there would be a noisy TGIF crowd.

Food was sub-par: chicken dish completely underwhelming, prime rib was the fattest cut of meat I have ever seen. Most unfortunate for my son, as it was the first time he had ever ordered prime rib. Very disappointing meal for our Easter dinner. :(

They offer a fantastic deal with a Thursday wine dinner. it's a 4 course meal with 3 wine pairings. The menu sounds incredible and we were very excited. I love seafood but was very disappointed. The shellfish (Raw oysters - Mussels) were... gamy and fishy tasting/smelling. I expected super fresh with none of that bonus smells/taste. However, the chilean sea bass was great and the filet was good as well but they did not let you pick how you wanted the steak prepared (came out medium well - I prefer medium rare to rare).

If the seafood was fresh, this would have been an amazing deal and we would be coming back for more Thurdays but we will not be coming back.

Went for DineLA and it was an absolute disappointment. The restaurant is slow which means low turnover of the food, so the food did not taste and appear fresh. Food took awhile considering there were only 2 other customers dining, my food was not lukewarm and it was the steak frites.

The prices were completely different from the prices that were posted on OpenTable, by at least 25%. Consistently higher prices than what you had listed on OpenTable. We used to go here quite a bit, but everything has changed. Used to be delicious hashbrowns and now it's preformed frozen hash brown patties. Had hot chocolate, came 3/4 filled, had asked for more and asked for whip cream. The cheese in the omelette wasn't even melted. Took the waiter 20 minutes to even come over and say hello to us. And they were only four tables filled in the whole restaurant! Just awful!

I liked it overall and I would recommend this place to my friends. Food taste good here but the portion is small. Also, I needed like the chocolate creme brulee; it taste like a piece of chocolate, not creamy like at all. Meat cooked very well, delicious.

The ratings are based on taking advantage of the dineLA event where you get a 3 course lunch meal for only $25. My selections was the clam chowder - flat iron steak - pear tart desert. My wife got the calamari - seafood pasta - and the other desert (can't remember the name). Do NOT order drinks though. She got a mimosa ($13) and we both got coffee's ($5 each) so drinks almost cost as much as the lunch. lol. Great deal for lunch but not sure about the regular menu.

We love our servers Anthony and Craig and our host Martin. We are always greeted warmly and feel like we are at home.

As always, predictable perfect. Server Craig is wonderful, warm and welcoming. The food is really great. Everything from steakhouse basics, to some incredible specials and awesome deserts.

They are constantly having theme nights, pretty fun opportunities to try interesting fare. Sunday is “prime rib” night. To die for perfect prime rib.

All in all one of my family’s favorites

We choose the evenings special (3 course meal & paired wine) the wine was OUTSTANDING. THE SALAD & THE FISH (sea bass - lightly grilled) WAS GOOD. THE FILLET SO-SO (it had to much sauce over the meat). I liked the mussels, my wife did not. The Chocolate Mousse was the best Mousse we have had in years (it was not filled with air & had a real chocolate taste). It was really outstanding ! The three kinds of bread were like home baked & very fresh ! Our waiter & his helpers paid attention to us but at the same time were not in our face. We were not rushed & had 2++ hrs. for our dinner. We also could see Catalina Island from out table until it was dark !!

It was a very enjoyable Anniversary evening for us. We have eaten in the BAR & also been there for EASTER this yr. These two other times had us come back.

I wanted to give Trump's restaurant a great rating because the service was good and the views were beautiful but our food was just "okay." When you pay close to $300 for a dinner for two, you expect delicious food. Unfortunately, we would not go back.

We were celebrating our anniversary and had an amazing evening!! Wonderful meals with filet mignon and New York Steak cooked to perfection! Our shared Shrimp cocktail appetizer was so fresh, and a generous shared Caesar salad was delicious. The service was excellent with personal attention by more than one server. The lovely music by the pianist made the evening even more special! One of our favorite Anniversary celebrations ever!! We will return soon!!

I must say that I (we) was disappointed for overall experience. The food was pricey and not memorable. Our waiter was nice but lacked focus. It took quiet a while to order and we had to ask what the feature dish was. His description did not make an impression on us. A "bento" box with things I couldn't understand. There were annoying FLIES in the dining room and our waiter said that they come in with the golfers???? He offered no way to avoid them landing on our table( & food). He brought and poured wrong ice tea after waiting for several minutes to get a refill. There weren't many guests so the slow service was perplexing to us.

Overall, I will not be returning for any particular reason. I would not recommend this to anyone.
