Cavatina at Sunset Marquis Ratings and Reviews
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.
Long wait for food, once it arrived, the hot food was cold. We all had salads - it's lunch in LA - a few apps for the table. The food overall were underwhelming, that said, service was great and it's a nice room. Great place for a drink, for a meal, not so much.
The hostess refused to seat us under a heater on the patio unless we ordered from the buffet, this was when the restaurant had exactly one other customer! When I insisted she check with the manager, of course they let us sit under a heater in the empty restaurant! It was downhill from there. Breakfast wasn't good, wait staff wasn't attentive. Won't go back.
A wonderful experience.
I only have one critique. They should not charge for parking since you have to valet it (very little parking on the street). That's a gouge that I really resent when you are spending good money to be there and have almost no choice, unless you want to walk a quarter of a mile.
Jessie and the manager were great! Very friendly and accommodating. It was busy and I think they were short staffed but I think they did a fabulous job keeping everyone happy. They overheard it was our birthdays and even sent us complimentary desserts! I mean... hello 5-star service!
We had such a lovely time here, was not expecting such beautiful gardens or decor. Truly impressed by the scenery and gorgeous pool upstairs where they had live music. All our food and drinks were delicious, the only complaint I had was that our waiter seemed to attend to every table around us several times before coming back. We waited a long time for our wine and just to order even though the inside wasn't particularly busy. I am hoping that was a rare/strange occurrence though because I cannot wait to come back to this breathtaking spot.
If you don't mind sitting a few feet from the likes of Roger Daltry and a few other rock n rollers then you'll love this restaurant's ambiance. Wonderful food, comfortable surroundings, good people watching and the most incredible service...it did take a few minutes longer than I wanted to order a cocktail at the table...but we'd had a few at the bar!
Cavatina at the Sunset Marquis Hotel is a beautiful setting with delicious, well-prepared food. The service can not be beat. The wait staff has been with the restaurant for years and is empowered serve in style and make decisions that fulfill guest desires. Food options are good and each dish is unique and flavorful. I've eaten there many times and loved it every time. I've attended a number of parties as well and they are always beautiful, elegant and fun! Try it. You'll be glad you did.
