“Genius” chef Christine Brown “continues to reinvent herself” at this “South Bay jewel” in a Torrance mini-mall with her “tantalizing”, “excellent” and often “exotic” Cal-Mediterranean fare; “unequaled”, “knowledgeable” service and a “charming” interior featuring a balcony help create a “consistently enjoyable experience”; P.S. the “tasting menu paired with wines is too good for words.”

Restaurant Christine is a two-level restaurant and boasts a very romantic setting in
Mediterranean colors. "The Room Next Door" is also available for private parties and
seats up to 40 people.
The menu is contemporary Pacific Rim and Mediterranean with French influences.
While the menu and atmosphere are ample reasons to return as frequently as one can, the experience is completed by the service. Enthusiasm for the restaurant reflects in the faces and demeanor of its employees. Knowledge and professionalism are central qualities of the experienced staff.


Restaurant Christine opened its doors to the community seven years ago, serving a menu combining Chef Christine Brown's studies of traditional French method with her love for lively recipes of the Mediterranean and the Far East.
Chef Christine, owner of Restaurant Christine, and General Manager Erick Bryant strive to create not just a restaurant but a warm and welcoming dining experience.

Restaurant Christine also features cooking classes, wine dinners, a tasting menu, low-cal "Christine Cuisine" and has a full catering department.
