catalina kitchen at Terranea Resort
We wanted a nice casual outdoor lunch while at Terranea for my wife's birthday so I made a reservation at Solviva. I am so impressed with my experience and we had a wonderful time there. I am a stickler for service, and the entire staff at Solviva were outstanding. Alexs, our server, was super attentive and courteous. Our orders came out quick and were cooked perfectly. I looked forward to going back in the future and recommend it highly.
Calming. A nice get-a-way from the louder restaurants at the resort. Much prefer this to the other when you want a nice conversation with your company.
Solviva provides a 5 star dining experience in every category, atmosphere, customer service, food quality and taste. Chose Solviva for my brothers-in-law birthday lunch and was not disappointed. I have heard people comment on portion size but we thought they were perfect. Just enough food to fill you up without that overly full feeling. The food is excellent and I have a very spoiled palate since my son is a chef. Highly recommend but also want to keep it a secret so it never becomes overly commercialized. Love this spot- one of Palos Verdes “best”.
Wonderful food, service, experience, and ambience!!!
(I’m just a hard grader, so 4 stars. )
Loved our first experience at Solviva. Romantic setting, wonderful service, good food and nice wine list. We were so happy with our dinner and celebration. I recommend going
We loved this place when we stayed at Terranea Resort. We ate breakfast/brunch both days and loved. Wonderful food and ambiance. Highly recommend.
Its an excellent restaurant next to the pool in the Spa area. The only complain I have is that the food portions are very small. I was satisfied but my son was still hungry after dinner.
It’s definitely not a dinner spot. The portions were very small and way over priced. Menu was limited.
We ended up getting an appetizer and two glasses of wine. As we saw the orders of others coming out we didn’t want to spend any more than we already had.
We left and got dinner somewhere else.
Food was small portion so we were still hungry after lunch was over 😅
I would recommend this place for breakfast ( very good) and probably lunch as everything is really fresh and healthy. Clean straight forward food. Dinner was a bit disappointing and there are better options of the hotel property.
I would like if they offered more vegan options. It is a spa restaurant after all.
Zero service, waited for 20 minutes l
If I didn't live so far away I would be there at least once a week! Our waiter Alex was great! A wonderful ladies luncheon!
Dirk was incredible and the food was fantastic!
Outrageously priced, teeny tiny portions, $50 corkage fee ( not mentioned until we got the bill) food tasted just ok. Only good thing was the atmosphere - outside seating near pool at sunset. We are locals who dine put frequently. We won’t be back.
Great food, ambience and service!
Food is good. Portions are tiny. I was quite annoyed that we were told that children couldn’t be sat at outdoor tables, so we were forced to sit inside. Then I saw they subsequently sat 5 tables all with children outside. I guess maybe just my kid? Seems quite a bit inconsistent.
Setting is stunning-outside by the pool overlooking the ocean. Clean, fresh food-smaller portions. It was great!
Nice and quiet restaurant by the spa pool. Food was fresh and healthy. Service was great.
Food was under seasoned and underwhelming our waiter Spencer was very nice, very beautiful but boring ambience.
