Excellent Sea Bass, Many great food choices.

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.

I have lived in the Palos Verdes area for a couple of years, and has not been able to find my "indulgent" restaurant until I stumbled into Christine. Wow this place took me by surprise! Food I cannot get anywhere else. This is my second visit, and want to make it a weekly visit. So very impressed with Crayfish &... More

We ate here last Saturday. The food was excellent, the service was superb, and there is really nothing to complain about. We have eaten here before and always like it, but I was particularly struck on this visit by how much better this restaurant is than Zazou in Redondo Beach, which I reviewed several months ago. I visited Zazou last... More
