We had a wonderful dinner last week. Everyones meal was delicious. Our waitress, Lisa was very attentive as was the other staff that came to the table. We will return on our next visit to the area.

I have eaten at Christines countless times and always enjoyed a excellent meal. I think the food is the best in the area. To get any better you have to go to the west side. With that said, this is the second time I've been there and the service was lacking. Tonight was really bad. We had a table upstairs and our poor waiter was waiting on all the tables upstairs along with those near the bar and booths downstairs. This is the second time this has happened. Please hire another waiter.

This is a cute restaurant at the bottom of the Palos verdes hill in Torrance. Meals are very expensive and seem like compensating real estate more than what is in the plate. Service has nothing extraordinary. There are a lot of high calorie meals on the menu, and just a few salads that can survive an attempt to eat healthy. The identity of the restaurant is a bit lost too. It sounds French but most of the meals are American Italian. Not worth wasting your time and money.

My wife and I have a tradition of eating at highly rated restaurants on our wedding anniversary, so over the years and decades we have eaten at some amazing places. This place is our favorite in the Los Angeles area. It's on the border of Torrance and Palos Verdes. Even though the menu includes tempting sounding meat dishes, we always go for the seafood. Last night we started with our 2 favorite appetizers (Tune 3 Ways, and Asian Style Seafood Sampler) and were so dazzled by the flavors - even though we had them before - that we decided to skip the entre menu and instead made a meal out of 4 more appetizers. The Lobster Mac & Cheese was delicious (mini oyster shaped pasta shells - not the traditional thick tube pasta). The Warm Mushroom Salad is another specialty. Prices are $10-13 for appetizers and $25-35 for entrees. For a special occasion it's our fav.

I tried the street food menu offers the restaurant started. I was there on crepe Wednesday.
The mushroom crepe was so wonderful. There are several other crepe offerings also. It comes with a generous portion of salad. What a perfect light meal. Monday is special grilled cheese. Tuesday is Taco Tuesday. Thursday is Oodles of Noodles, and Friday has sliders.
You need to try the great food there.
