Cavatina at Sunset Marquis Ratings and Reviews

Fabulous oasis! Our guests were knocked out!
$15 Orange Juice
The orange juice was the same price as the chicken lunch entree... In the arena of high priced Hollywood dining where atmosphere oftentimes supercedes food taste, there's a pricing ceiling where even a local customer feels gouged and wallet-assaulted. Oh, and cobwebs are visibly noticeable dangling from the ceiling beams and corners.

While the food was good, the service was horrible. Not knowledgable about the menu and slow. We stayed at the hotel and basically any time we placed an order, the service was slow, not familiar with the menu, and our orders would get mixed up. Anyway, our lunch time waiter seemed to be quite uneasy with his job. Didn't make an eye contact and wasn't able to describe a single dessert item I asked about. It comes as a big surprise that this famous, renowned hotel would employ waiters unfamiliar with the menu....

Always enjoy dinner here. They have great food and the ambience is amazing. Hard to believe you are just steps from the hustle and bustle of sunset boulevard. Such a serene space.

We had a reservation and we waited for the food almost one hour and a half. When the food came we were so tired and we gave up to ask for a desert. The restaurant wasn't crowded, honestly I couldn't see any reason for this mistake.

Amazing food and beautiful setting and walk from valet to restaurant :)
Hidden away and you'd never know it's here.
I love the atmosphere and the garden setting really makes it special. You really feel like you're someplace else. The food was really good and the service was great unless you needed something else after being asked. Our server was great but was one of only two on duty so it kind of took a while to get everything we needed at the same time. I'm sure that on a busier day they'd have more on the floor and this wouldn't happen.

Great menu overall but my personal favorite is sea bass and Brussels sprouts! Club is great too
Lovely place for Sunday Brunch.

Romantic Colorful Oasis
Walking into Cavatina leaves one feeling as if they've entered a different planet. Lush foliage and colorful lighting enhances this already surreal dining spot to another level. The food was delicious and the ambiance was not to miss. Would recommend to anyone wishing a respite from the regular.
Cavatina met all my expectations and some. There is a little walk that you have to do through The Sunset Marquis in order to get to the restaurant and the closer you get to the restaurant the more breathtaking it gets. The food was heavenly and so flavorful ( I had the Filet Mignon ). The server was pleasant and very attentive. If you are looking for a beautiful restaurant to bring any loved ones or a loved one, I'd definitely recommend Cavatina at Sunset Marquis, it will not let you down. A little fun side note; We got seated right next to the one and only Ozzy Osbourne, you just never know when you'll run into some one at the Cavatina ;)
Paradise in town

Sunset Marquis Rocks
Have not stayed at the Marquis since the early 80's. Whether new band in town or the Rolling Stones this was the place to stay during the birth of LA's rock scene. The restaurant survived for years and I have no real memory of it. That changed Friday night. The remodeled and expanded Marquis rebuilt around the old pool is spectacular and Cavatina hit the same high bar. Cocktails were strong and large, apps varied and unique, two filets perfectly prepared and a scallops for the three of us left all raving.
Christmas romantic date with my wife
They had plenty of heaters on during the Christmas eve, which was like 40F or something freezing cold, so that was very nice of them. It was actually very comfy sitting out and we could enjoy the beautiful garden decorated with all the lights. Food was pretty educational and delicious. The server is quite nice as well. I respect these guys who're willing to work on the evening night. However, the only downside I wanted to leave was: they did not allow us to share the meal. It was a 75$ per person meal and it was quite a lot of food. At first my wife and I were planning on sharing but the manager told us they don't allow sharing. It was quite an unexpected rule as there weren't any minimal orders required at time of reservation and none other restaurants have ever prohibited food sharing. My wife and I ended up getting 2 orders of Christmas special combo, which was the only thing on the menu for that night, and the food was too much for us to finish. Good thing I had some cushion in my budget so the dinner turned out pretty well. I guess it was more of my fault for not doing my homework well. Overall a great restaurant to go. Definitely visiting again.
The lighting is all purple and dark, not in a good way. A waiter fully bumped into my chair hard even though it was NOT crowded and there was nothing near me. We ordered some raw crudos and some warm seafood dishes (mussels etc) and the cold, raw dishes arrived after the warm ones-- really weird. The food was fine, but not that great.
Brunch with 2 Friends
Location was very boutiqueish. My friend who arrived before me had chosen a table overlooking the Koi pond, which was lovely. It was Sunday at 12:30 pm. Restaurant was not full, yet, we were not encouraged to order from the lunch menu and Server made a big deal several times how we might be bumped from the table unless at least one of us selected the brunch, which I did. One of my guests ordered an omelet from the lunch menu and the server said he can just go to the omelet area for the brunch and she would adjust the price. Service regarding beverages was not attentive; getting the brunch, I had to ask for coffee, but not from our server. After that, lunch was very pleasant with excellent food. I would not discourage anyone from going there because of this anomaly.

We go there a lot, but this time was TERRIBLE!
Good spread, with nice salads, very good roast beef and desserts. The table service is very good, with the glass never running out of champagne (which isn't - it seems to be lower grade California stuff by taste) and plates cleared almost too fast. However, the eggs section is way too slow, not because of the employee cooking but because it is a two man job. Also, the $60 cost is too much for the types of food served. You can get a lower cost in nicer areas (say overlooking the beach in Santa Monica rather than so far inland). Also the valet is $10, which even the top restaurants don't charge. Sad to day, the management considers this a cash cow rather than a service to patrons. I plan to skip if I do not have to go again.
Great Patio/beautiful setting Food wasn't up to standards of the location. Steak was grisly, fish totally over cooked, salad with fish was horrible. Love this place for the beauty but probably not come back due to the food disappointment. It was a special occasion and I felt embarrassed for my guest.
Can't beat the outside dining ambiance
Food and service were great but I love this particular restaurant day and night because of the beautiful outdoor patio. So pretty and relaxing!
Beautiful is an understatement!
We loved everything about Cavatina. Food, it was fun, trendy and the service was solid. Go, it will far exceed your expectations.
This is the loveliest dinning spots the service is great, food is wonderful.
Always recommend going to Sunset Marquis.
The Menu offers a good selection and the expanded brunch has a great mouth water selections. selection. All this is complimented by a magnificent setting from every table.

This is a very unusual la place. The food is mediocre and feels like one of those horrible restaurants in a hotel in the Midwest or south- meaning unsophisticated and bland. And the decor feels like you're in Vegas. How sad.
Seems to be going down.
After dining here at least 4 times in the last six weeks, I'm starting to see the food quality take a definite dive down. Of the four of us were having dinner, three had items that were either really bad or inedible altogether. The brussel sprouts had such a vinegary taste that no one at the table could eat. The cauliflower steak was not much better with very little flavor except for the burnt edges (also not enjoyable). The service was fine but I was a little disappointed that when they removed the plates with so much food still on them that they didn't inquire as to why. For the price, I think it will be a while before we go back which is a shame since we truly enjoy taking out of town guest there.

Absolutely phenomenal food and ambiance.One of best restaurants I've been to in long time...
Pleasant place to celebrate -- but once is enough!
The food was tasty, but neither particularly imaginative nor exceptional. The ambience is lovely, sitting outdoors with trees surrounding (though I had specifically asked for a table near the trees and was not given one). The food is tasty though not at all exceptional, and the selections for main courses actually quite limited. Our fish was meaty and tasty, but rather average -- not worth the money. One of our party had to send the pasta back -- it was so overcooked it was barely edible, and when it was brought out again it was far from al dente. The wine list was concentrated toward absurdly expensive wines. We enjoyed the evening, but I wouldn't go back.
We needed to stay at our home in West Hollywood for our anniversary. The Restaurant and our favorite waiter, Greg, made it memorable. Incredible food, best cosmo for me and negroni for Jack. Then white wine with my sea bass, and port with chocolate desert. They insisted on the wine and desert to be complementary for us to celebrate. Wow! So nice. I just love this place. I have been here 3 times this week with family. And when so many come to visit us we stay at the Sunset Marquee which I just love to have a reason to do so. So personal, so cool and so nice. Thanks. Diane
I love Sunset Marquis, my favorite the sea bass and salad, the burger is delish. It is a lovely restaurant. My favorite restaurant. Great outdoor and indoor restaurant.
Prettiest Restaurant in all of LA
We had the same server my Husband and I had about a month ago on Saturday night - Gregory who is very nice. Keep up the great work.
Quiet & Romantic
Great spot if you're looking for a relaxing ambience & fantastic food. Service was excellent. It is like a hidden gem in a swank hotel.
love the ambiance
love this place. perfect for first date night and great food!
Brunch outdoor seating policu
They should pre-alert guests that only those who buy brunch buffet ($65) are allowed to dine on outside patio.
A Little Off
While the atmosphere is as lovely as ever, the menu is not as great as it used to be…alas, the amazing gluten free pasta is no more. Portions also seemed a little smaller and prices a little higher. Our server seemed new, knew little about the menu, and was often MIA. Too bad because it's a very special place.
We travel throughout the country and come to Los Angeles each August. This venue is always one of the things we look forward to each year. Our regular server was not there that night, but Angel took really good care of us. As always, the service was impeccable. Angel was friendly, timely, and extremely professional. Our meals (as we always have come to expect) were inventive, pleasing to the eye and DELICIOUS. My friend had the New York steak and I had the filet. Both were cooked perfectly. The apps we had were the potato chips and deviled eggs. While you might think Deviled eggs? They are scrumptious. Give them a try. This is probably our favorite place to visit each year, and once again it hit a home run.
Cavatina is my new favorite in LA
We flew in from NY on Sunday, and our first night for dinner was Cavatina. It is a little gem in the Sunset Marquis Hotel. It was our first time there, and we got six different dishes. Everything was delicious! The shrimp, lobster and chorizo dish was amazing! I will definitely go back on our next visit to LA.
Ask for Keith for your server. He always nails it. Great food, great ambience.
