We’ve been many times before and always look forward to our next visit. Service is especially wonderful, and food and ambiance stand out as well. Great evening, and look forward to our next evening at Cal Mare soon!

We went here after leaving Fig & Olive that was way too noisy on Saturday eve, more like a dance club. Much quieter at Cal Mare, very nice yet casual atmosphere. Food was delicious and unique, and friendliest service we have had in a long time.

The experience exceeded our expectations. Food is presented in a different style as was the lasagna which was delicious. Our server Ashley B performed very well and represented her employer in an excellent fashion. The restaurant provide us with sample food extra's which I thought was delightful. I would highly recommend Cal Mare.

Our server Jordan (?) was great. Very knowledgeable of the menu, made good recommendations, and was overall very good. Could not figure out why there were not more people in the place on a Saturday night at prime time. Food was good but not as good as it could have been. Someone in our group had the pizza, which looked great. Lobster Buccatini was fair - the lobster was a bit dry. Overall a good spot for a business group, which we were.

We had a great dinner with great attentive service at Cal Mare. Everyone was very helpful and went out of their way to make the evening memorable. The manager, Robert greeted us and made sure that we were taken care of during the evening. We will definitely return for more great food.

In my experience very few meals are stellar from start to finish. This meal was the exception. Every course was not only delicious, but also well timed. I will certainly be back the next time I’m in LA. Do yourself a favor and make sure you have the oysters. Literally the best ever.

The staff was amazing but we did wait a bit too long for our food. The Happy birthday card (hand written) was such a nice touch and the Canole Mountains were very much appreciated. You have a great selection of Italian sparkling which I truly loved. We’ll be back soon.

We celebrated a special occasion and the service was excellent. The menu is varied with lots of interesting choices. Some typical things but also items that are more unusual. The quality of the food was very good - everything from octopus, to pizza, pasta and pork chops. Prices were high but we enjoyed both the food and the service and would definitely return.

This restaurant is a gem. You might not traditionally expect to find a place this good in a shopping mall but the centers these days are attracting very high end dining to attract people to the mall and hoping they spend more time and money visiting the other retail stores.
Cal Mare has fantastic food and superb service. Each course was truly wonderful. From the little gem salad, and the summer melon with prosciutto, to the agnolotti stuffed with mushrooms, truffle and summer corn, to the perfectly cooked snapper, to the dessert gelato, I am both of my dining companions were savoring each mouthful. We will be back soon for sure.

Without a doubt, the best dining experience we've ever had (and we eat out alot!) So much more than a meal - outstanding service, attentive staff, including Robert the GM, amazing food! A bit of a splurge, but truly worth it.

Great food and service! The bibb lettuce salad was one the best salads I've ever ate and the portion size was excellent. I would either increase the portion size of the pasta, or lower the price so that the value is better. The shrimp pasta with 4 shrimp tasted delicious!

First time at Cal Mare and my family & I were extremely pleased with the entire experience! Our waitress, Debbie, was so incredible and made our dinner extra special (it was my cousin’s birthday). She was so sweet and attentive, with such a wonderful attitude! Our food was also delicious, we enjoyed everything we ordered AND the food came out quick! Inside ambiance is fantastic as well, and the decor is beautiful. Would highly recommend this place for a special occasion or date night stop, as it’s a little on the pricier side.

Celebrated a birthday here -- and the restaurant went above and beyond to make it a special night. I actually started feeling guilty about all the nice additional touches they treated us to: birthday card from the staff and chef, complimentary prosecco, and a birthday cake pyramid made out of cannoli. Plus our server Nick was nice, knowledgeable, and went above and beyond attending to various food allergies -- all with a great relaxed vibe.

What a delicious lunch at Cal Mare. Everyone was so nice and friendly and the restaurant is just beautiful, love the color scheme and the open air sea feel. We devoured the zeppole, prosciutto, stracciatella and kaluga caviar in seconds. That dish is a must, thank you to the chef for allowing us to enjoy this dinner item during lunch. The mussels were fresh and clean and we finished lunch up with a sweet and succulent corn soup. Our cocktail and Prosecco were alsDefinitely will come back for dinner.

Cal Mare has one of the best and most expansive HAPPY HOURS in town. Came there with a bunch of friends and hung out at the bar all night. it wasn't too crowded on a Saturday night, so we essentially had our own private party. The service is great, and so are the drinks and pizza.

My 3rd time here and the service is always great. I love the style of the dining room. Parking is convenient. Food is delicious but I’d love a few more choices of fresh, wild caught, sustainable fish. Side dishes are wonderful and a good wine list.

The restaurant wasn’t busy since it was a Monday night and yet the service was super slow. Drinks and Food took forever. The chopped salad was so salty we couldn’t eat it. The pasta dishes were small and didn’t taste very good. Sorry but I won’t be returning.

Capitan Nick made our party of 6 feel as though we were food critics for The Inspiration or Michelin. The service was extraordinaire, with the Chef surprising us with a couple of complimentary tasty morsels, which we devoured. Wonderful experience in every aspect. Our servers were super professional and personal. And pizza over which our server drizzled stirred poached egg! Ha! Who ever thought of such an indulgent combination... we ate it all! Enjoy!

My husband and I enjoyed our pasta dishes- a spaghetti with crab and a rigatoni with pork. The sweet berries they had for dessert were a fabulous end to the dinner. Our server was very well informed about the wine and menu items. We wish we lived here so we could return.

We’ve dined here before. Opted to sit outside this visit. Service is always impeccable. Food was also delicious. My complaint is with the outdoor facilities. The chairs/cushions need some attention.
