Great food and wine. Service was a bit slow but the place was packed so understandable. Noise levels were too high for a romantic/intimate dinner.

All in all it was a nice place but now I know what to expect. I would go back...

This was my husband's and my first time at Restoration Kitchen and Wine. We took two other couples with us. I was very pleased to find out that they offer wine flights. The food, the wine, and the atmosphere were great. We will definitely be going back and when we do, we'll be taking two new couples with us.

This place ALWAYS comes through for us. We brought our kids and the dog and sat out on their patio. The staff really knows how to take care of their guests. They are always so friendly and really know their menu. The food was amazing. We got the meat lovers flat bread and a bottle of The Prisoner. The kids had the sliders and fries! And then we got the little chocolate pot of cream! We LOVE it!
I HIGHLY recommend Restoration Kitchen and Wine!!

It’s a small place with a very small kitchen so they get backed up in the kitchen really quickly when the place is full. They comp’d us free desserts for the slow service.

Outside seating quiet, but waitstaff has to be prompted to light heaters and overall service was slow and uncoordinated between staff. Great food, wine splits overpriced.

I'm so glad there is a restaurant of this quality in the South Bay area. The food was great. The waiter suggested a great wine. I hope they expand the dessert menu a little. We will definitely be returning to try other dishes. We ordered the meat lovers flatbread, mac and cheese, and fried meatballs.

Our service was perfect. He (I forgot his name) wa very knowledgeable and accommodating. This was our first time here. The food was fresh and everything we ordered was exactly as described and expected. One of our friends was looking to eat cleanly for an upcoming (military) P.T. test. Two of us had just run a half marathon & were looking to eat a lot of satisfying food. One just needed a simple dinner w/a good glass of wine. We all went home happy. We will definitely be back!

We went for happy hour when drinks and some mains (marked with an H on the menu) were 25% off. Food was tasty and service was attentive. We had the meatball croquettes, sea bass and mushroom pasta. The croquettes were generous and filling. The sea bass was a filet that was delicious but I was expecting more like a Chilean sea bass. The mushroom pasta was something that you can make at home so I would try something different next time. We finished with a chocolate pot de creme which was a nice way to finish the meal. Space was small as noted by other reviewers so I would definitely make reservations as the place is pretty cozy.

This is my new favorite place to dine. Their outdoor patio has such a great vibe to it! The waitstaff are so genuine and helpful. They have an excellent wine list and their food is the best in the South Bay! I love that this place is never too crowded - but I'm sure when the weather gets nicer, their patio fills up!

Good value at this cozy restaurant in downtown Torrance! Entrees are not huge, but meant to be shared with others. Small but enjoyable wine/beer list not ideal for kids.

Visited for my wife's birthday and was not disappointed!! Excellent charcuterie board to start, followed by a very nice beet salad for my wife and and excellent king crab and corn bisque that was the perfect consistency and so very tasty! Our entrees were outstanding; the mushroom pasta was tasty with a light cream sauce and a little bit of bacon added. The braised short rib and au gratin potatoes were also very tasty, and perfectly done. The short rib fell apart with little effort with my fork. Dessert was a very simple chocolate mousse topped with slightly burned whipped cream that was perfect to share after a filling (but not overly so) meal.
