LAReview

Cal Mare is in the Beverly Center, but it doesn’t really feel like a mall restaurant. First off, it’s actually good. The seafood-heavy menu has house-made pastas, a carbonara pizza that you should absolutely be ordering, and fresh, flavorful fish. That being said, there’s nothing particularly cool about the atmosphere - the large space goes heavy on the coastal theme, with lots of turquoise and pictures of fish. Overall, we could see this being a good place for dinner with parents, or for your boss who wants something other than a steakhouse.
