This restaurant has closed.

Christine's was a wonderful restaurant. After they experienced some plumbing problems, they had to close--permanently. I hope Christine opens another restaurant after her R&R.

There has been lots of confusion as to what has happened to this restaurant. Someone told me today that it has closed for good. Another friend just told me they are closed for repairs. I wish we could settle this once and for all. All I know is I went by on March 6 and they were closed even if... More

Restaurant Christine is an excellent choice in the Torrance area. Always has had interesting choices on the every changing menu. Terrific service, fantastic food, local feel. I have dined at this location multiple times and have always been satisfied.

Made a 5:30 PM reservation on Open Table for a celebratory Christmas Eve dinner so we could get to an 8 PM church service. Ordered dinner at 5:40 or so after a wine/cocktail service. Salad came in a timely manner, however after waiting until 6:15 I asked about dinner entrees we'd yet to receive and was told we were next... More

Restaurant Christine has an array of choices for both lunch and dinner, and tends to be my go-to restaurant when I'd like to have a nice sit-down meal. Most of the time, the food is always prepared perfectly. Which is always the case with their filet mignon salad. However, there are times when the food is not bad, but just... More

I am never disappointed when I visit Christine for a meal. The service is great and the food full of flavor and flawless. One of my favorites is the mushroom salad....AMAZING. We believe that Christine is a hidden gem.

I wanted to take a dear friend for a special lunch to celebrate a milestone bday. This spot was perfect. Any meal choice is always good and the service friendly. Sitting outside was relaxing

Always surprised by the wonderful choices which always surprises. They add new items and I love to try new things so I'm in. Staff is wonderful as well. Seth is my favorite waiter. I always feel welcomed and feel like family when I go.

Despite having a rather mediocre experience here about three months previously (which we wrote off to Christine's having a bad night) we took some friends out to a thank you dinner here last month. Another disappointment. Too bad. This property which sits right at the base of the Palos Verdes Peninsula hill used to be a saving grace for the... More

They actually make it with goat cheese for me, instead of gorgonzola. It is my favorite burger anywhere. I love the iced green tea too. It is a small and friendly environment. The staff is attentive and on top of service. This is a 'highly recommend' from me.
