We got recommended this place by a friend who loved dining here and she wasn't joking. The food here is amazing but my favorite part is the service. Denise S. was our server and just like every other tourist we asked her for suggestions. Her...feedback on things that we were uncertain about gave us the confidence to move forward with the events. She was also super attentive, professional, and kind to us. 10/10 recommend, if you get Denise S. as a server, you hit the jackpot as your experience will be immaculate.More

Ian was our server and we had the best time at the lounge chairs on Descanso. He was so attentive and just genuinely nice to interact with. The view simply can’t be beat but you pair that with great food and cocktails. It made our...day. We can’t wait to return in a few days and then enjoy a cabana!More

Raul!!!! I can’t say enough to justify his hospitality. Out of every hotel, restaurant, store and tourist attraction we visited, the best service we received on the island was at the beach front on Descanso. Raul was our server (friend). He was considerate, fun and...informative. We will definitely return because of Raul’s service. Thank you Raul, you are appreciated!More

Thank you Descanso for making our trip to Catalina so memorable. We rented four lounge chairs at the beach. Our server Ian was amazing. The most polite, happy, engaging server we’ve ever had. Ian constantly checked in on us. Made sure we were comfortable, our...drinks were flowing and that we ate. He was wonderful! The entire experience was great! No wonder why this place gets booked out in advance. Can’t wait to come back. Thank youMore

My husband and I visited Descanso Beach Club on June 22 and Raul was our server at our beach side lounge chairs. He was amazingly attentive, helpful, efficient, funny and truly wanted to serve us with the utmost care! The Catalina Island company is lucky...to have such a hard working, dedicated and kind person working for them! Thank you Raul!More

Yes, you can make a reservation. I made it through the hotel where we were staying. You may want to make one well in advance of your stay if going over the summer.
