We stayed at terranea for a long weekend and tried all restaurants and this one is the only one we liked...expensive but worth the experience. The view is amazing so make sure you sit outside. We had the most amazing waitress - Jessica-- who guided us through our choices and was fun, knowledgeable and made this the best dinning experience.... More

Gorgeous ocean view, near-perfect service, excellent foods. Prices are sky-high - fine for a special occasion, though

Mar'sel isn't one of my all-time favorite restaurants because of the quality food and fantastic customer service. The views of the Pacific Ocean add to the atmosphere. Highly recommended to celebrate birthdays, graduations or just sit near the fire pit for drinks.

Four of us came to the resort for the sole purpose of enjoying brunch. Our server was a friendly lady, the bus staff kept our drinks full and the food was very nice. The view was the main attraction but the food was decent. We would return mainly for the setting.

I took my son here for his 21st birthday. We live in the South Bay and I wanted something special, but close, to celebrate his milestone birthday. From the moment we hit the property, we were treated with care. Valeting our vehicle was easy, the grounds are beautiful, and the staff is so friendly and positive, you feel like you... More

The food is highlighted by produce grown on site. The whole resort is covered in fragrant rosemary, I had a unique salad with native mustard that was perfect. Very Napa feeling to it. The fish I had was disappointing, but something told me not to get it and I should have listened to my gut. Order something besides fish. For... More

The staff was very helpful, the food was very good, dessert was out of this world and ocean air to breathe in - what's not to love?

I have dined here twice now and both times were very very good. The menu changes with the season so don't expect to see the same dishes again. The food is outstanding. I had the best gazpacho soup ever. Refreshing and light, like it should be yet so many restaurants get it wrong. The wine list is very good and... More
