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.

This was the first time we've been to the Catalina Kitchen at the Terranea Resort since it was renovated. We had lunch outdoors on the terrace with a view of the Pacific and Catalina Island.

I had a late lunch here recently and even though the menu is very small - the chef was really kind and re-worked one of the entrees just for me!! The salmon was cooked perfectly and the home-made salad dressing was amazing. I highly recommend this restaurant!!

Ate here for both breakfast and lunch off the ala carte menu. The chicken salad was excellent. The scrambled eggs were slightly over done and rubbery. The service was excellent. The waiter went so far to make me fresh brewed ice tea so I could avoid cloves.

The most expansive brunch I have ever seen! Pace yourself so you can enjoy breakfast and lunch ... and dessert too! Sat in private new back room with 14 people. Even a leaky ceiling couldn't ruin our delicious meal. Pricey but good for special occasion.

I've been to the Catalina Kitchen at the Terranea Spa and Resort many times but this was my first visit since they remodeled this restaurant. First the location is beautiful and the renovations are very nice. The menu supports local foods and wines which is very nice. I ordered the short ribs and they were very, very good. It was... More
