Special occasion

We decided to end our month long holiday by celebrating a special occasion at this restaurant. We opted to eat inside instead of outside as the evening was cool; big mistake as we were sitter right next to the outside door. We would have been better outside next to one of their heaters. The view... read more

Incredible ocean view and incredible wait staff. Food was excellent but the service was beyond compare. Pricy, but worth it!

As many have said, the setting is amazing with nearly all seating outside with a stunning view. The menu is limited, but enough options to keep most happy. I had the grass fed lamb and my wife the scallops. Both were excellent as was the white bass ceviche. Service was very strong and was best of restaurants at the hotel.

Everything was lined up for what one would think would be an incredible dining experience, but alas the food was a huge disappointment. Limited menu options with food flavors that lacked creativity and substance. Good food would have easily have made this a five star experience. All four of the limited entrees were marginal at best. Unpublised wine list was... More

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
