I had to flag down the staff once or twice for needed items. We ended up splitting the bill, whuch had to be good for the wait staff...Overall very good food, but... More

Quite frankly, for $75+++ for brunch, I expected perfection. It was definitely not that. On the plus side, it is a beautiful venue and the service by our waitperson, Lisa, was 5 stars. Her personality and professionalism is what drives an overall “excellent” rating here versus just “good”. We had reserved well in advance and had requested an outdoor table... More

The newly remodeled restaurant was nicely done. The food was delicious and the service was great. Highly recommend enjoying a meal at Catalina Kitchen during your visit. The outdoor seating provides beautiful views of the ocean while dining! :)

We were quickly seated outside on the patio. It was overcast but heat lamps kept us warm. We ordered chicken salad, ahi tuna poki with flat bread and steamed mussels with french bread. Great friendly service and presentation of food.

Had 3 long lunches with different family members and some old friends while at Terranea. The menu is exceptional and the wait staff was superb. The Kobe beef burger and the steak salad were better than delicious. Patio dining is also available. Go later in the day for lunch or make reservations as it gets busy.

It was fine for brunch with my family some of whom live in LA. The brunch was very, very crowded and it was difficult to get back to your seat from the buffet. It was too many people crammed in the space. We went back there for lunch one day and it was not nearly so crowded. That was a... More

Terrific buffet Sunday brunch. Unusually good Filet Mignon and Salmon. Also particularly enjoyed all the shellfish and sushi. And don't forget the pastries and gelato at the end.
