This restaurant offers a nice view of the Avalon Harbor from open veranda upstairs. We made reservations and requested a "window" seat, arrived early and were seated promptly at a very nice table by the window. It was pretty busy and loud inside. The waitress was efficient and friendly but not very personable. My dry martini was a bit watered... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for choosing to dine with us during your recent trip to Catalina. I am glad to read that you enjoyed your table by the window and found the Shrimp Avalon excellent. In regards to being busy and noisy, I suspect this was your first time in Avalon during the summer season. Yes, Avalon is high-energy during... More

We have been here several times. Each time we wonder why we come back. Until recently there were not a lot of fine dining choices in Avalon, so that is why we kept trying. However this may be the last. We came without a reservation on a Wednesday and were seated promptly. The tables are all very close together and... More

Dear Guest, I am generally concerned, if not perplexed, by your negative review considering you have dined with us on several occasions and still choose to come back even though, as you stated, there are other options. I suppose what is really perplexing is you ordered sea bass knowing it is served in a white wine, caper butter sauce. I... More

From ownership down this is the best place on the island. Steve is the best and really there is attention to every detail. The food blows everything else away on Catalina. No matter what you try you can't go wrong. You have to try the coconut curry soup. The coconut shrimp is great too. The polynesian skirt steak is exceptional... More

We are a group of friends of which one owns a home there on the island. We go over once a year (been doing it for 22 years). Last year was our first dinner at Steve's and it was good in every way. This year, June 21, there was only three of us and we were very much accommodated by... More

Just spoke to the hostess over the phone regarding delivery which is stated as a dining option on trip advisor. She was quite rude and you should maybe consider updating the dining options.

I am sorry you were upset with the fact that we do charge a fee for deliveries, however, as Lili tried to explain to you on the phone, we do not have our own delivery vehicle and have to pay for taxi service to deliver, which you were upset about and wanted us to deliver it for free.

I was disappointed by Steve's Steakhouse. My husband ordered a steak, which was a big chewy. I ordered the ahi tuna. It was a good size fish but it got dry at the end. The service was poor and we had to waive down our waiter multiple times to get what we wanted. They also forgot about my husband's clam... More
