it was our special day, decided to try something different.should have heeded the hint of an empty place with only one table of customers. We ordered seared Ahi sandwich, bread was dry, wasabi was stale and grey in color. The breaded kung pao calamari was soggy and luke warm, ribs was warm.

We ate here for dinner, the appetizer we ordered was very bad. Pot stickers and some kind of noodles were disgusting. Then I ordered the ravioli dish, it came out & the smell was almost as bad as the taste. Tasted like it had dishsoap or lysol in it. I couldn t eat anything after that.

The place is a nice cozy place. The moment that we walked in we felt Unwelcomed and Unnoticed. We had to ask to be seated. The busboy removed the dirty dishes from the table but chose to NOT change the tablecloth, not even brush the leftover food off of it. Once seated, we never was offered water or a drink,... More

A rather quaint restaurant that brings a upscale flair at more reasonable prices. We had a rather diversified meal and it was delicious! The staff were attentive, and the art on the walls were beautiful!

Arte Cafe situated deep in the heart of Cerritos Towne Center, is literally an oasis of fine food buried in a shopping mall, the restaurant walls are decorated with an interesting array of art work? The food is always fresh and has a Pacific Rim theme to its dishes, there is a very well stocked bar and an outside patio... More

This was an awful meal. I used to love this place. I went there for lunch with a colleague. The bread was stale. The Niçoise salad was pathetic. The art on the wall was poorly placed. It was just horrible. Won't ever go back. Period.

This restaurant is a true find in a strip mall. The menu is varied and the food is very good. It's a great place to eat prior to going to the Cerritos Performing Arts Center for an evening performance.
