Cavatina at Sunset Marquis Ratings and Reviews
I always forget about this hidden gem in my neighborhood during the winter...it's outdoor patio is the perfect al fresco dining spot in the summer. The setting is beautiful and I enjoy walking thru the Sunset Marquis and seeing their wonderful exhibit of rock n roll photos. The food is always delicious and Cavatina is one of the few restaurants with a noise level that allows you and your dinner companions to actually have a conversation!
This has been close to my 20th visit here and it is always amazing every time. The combination of the friendly and welcoming staff and the breathtaking environment make it a perfect location for a special event. We tend to make a dinner out of several appetizers and shared plates and there were many creative dishes to choose from. This was a birthday and anniversary occasion for my friends and I, and we were treated to some amazing desserts to brighten the celebration. Drinks were a little pricey but they were Patron and Cointreau margaritas, so it's kind of expected - especially at such a uber cool establishment in LA. There was a fantastic art show being given in the on-site gallery that made the evening even more incredible. Not to be missed for a special night out.
Bad news first because I like leaving on a good note. I have high expectations for food especially when it comes to Italian food and I was thoroughly disappointed with my entrée. I ordered the risotto and found it to be way under cooked and virtually flavorless. Now for the good news, my boyfriend and I sincerely enjoyed the cheeseboard as our appetizer and he really loved his entrée. The drinks were amazing and the ambience was romantic yet modern. Our waiter was so kind and attentive. I'd definitely go back here but I'd order something different.
I've had dinner at Cavatina half a dozen times and this is the first time that the food and service were just not that good. We were a table of four and I had the chicken which was over-the-top dry. Even the dark meat of the chicken was very dry as the dish was certainly overcooked. The waiter also needs to understand that when he approaches a table, he cannot just start talking if the guests are involved in a conversation. He did this every time he came to the table and seemed to forget that it is the guest's experience, not his, that matters.
I booked Cavatina for a birthday celebration on June 25. Our waiter couldn't have been more lovely. Attentive in just the right way. Arranged for a delicious dessert to come out with a candle and birthday message on the plate totally unprompted. The setting is beautiful and we ate on the patio with a view of garden and the sound of running water from the koi pond. All very romatic. One of the highlights of our vacation.
This is a stunning setting with an interesting menu. The service is lovely and the waitstaff friendly (and funny). The food was slightly disappointing. We have been here several times before the restaurant changed hands and chefs. The salmon was perfectly done but almost taste-free. The grilled octopus sauce didn't compliment the octopus. The gorgeous veal chop was overcooked. There is an Asian fusion aura to the food that doesn't seem to work.
Dessert was fabulous, but alas, too little, too late.
Sunday brunch is perfect. The food choices are lovely. The omelet bar was not crowded because the size of the restaurant is intimate. All food was top shelf. And the endless mimosas were perfectly poured at the table. The staff was attentive. It is a perfect lazy Sunday brunch.
I've been for brunch at Sunset Marquis several times with exceptional, attentive service. Unfortunately, service was lacking this visit... empty glasses for longer than expected periods and no notice the buffet was closing soon as they usually do. Not cool. And, kinda seems like they are going cheap on the food -- over cooked/dry halibut and it is mostly a salad and omelette bar. Think I'll just go for a drink/app next time I bring out of town guest.
I booked our table for Easter Brunch, the brunch itself included champagne/mimosas which was nice. The food was nice, I personally would have preferred a little more variety of foods. When I go to a buffet/brunch I like to try a little of everything but you could really get a heaping sample of everything on two plates. I found the desserts to be a little lackluster as well.
That being said their seafood selection, crab and shrimp, was very well stocked at all times and was delicious. The service was impeccable, they had lots of staff that were very attentive without hovering and you didn't feel rushed at all. There was a table near us that was there when we got there at 10:40 and they were still there when we left at 1:30. That was kind of nice, to feel like you could really enjoy and take your time.
The resturant it's self was beautiful, we were on the patio but it was completely covered and partially enclosed. The weather on Easter was amazing so it felt really nice to be sitting outside while still feeling like you were inside. The walkway up to the resturant from the hotel has beautiful flowers and there is a cute little koi pond, so the atmosphere and ambiance are definitely there.
It was great. Even though the patio was booked for a private event, the hostess Yuriana was absolutely amazing. Making sure that everything was optimal for my guests. What an awesome customer oriented individual.
All in all, it was a great evening for drinks and business chats. The other people in my party were in awe of the very urban zen ambiance as it was their first time dining at Cavatina.
