Latin-Inspired Cuisine, Michelin Star Worthy


Set in one of Redwood City’s snazziest streets, LV Mar draws a regular crowd of Silicon techs by day; evenings brings couples out for date night.

LV Mar

The dining room is classy yet modern with a touch of lounge atmosphere. There are large inviting windows that open to the outdoor patio with multiple heaters to maximize dining experience.


An inviting bar that hosts a variety of exotic drinks and the menu is full of surprising elements.

We started our night by meeting the talented yet affable Chef Manuel Martinez. We were mesmerized by his creativity and passion for food.

Here is a new drink that he created. We love the spiced rim!!!


We desired the following dishes:
Ceviche Mixto:
A combination of octopus, scallop, halibut dressed with orange, red onion & rocotto chile, lime. The best part was the plantain on the side!!


Calamares Salteados:
Sautéed calamari, mussels and chorizo with saffron lime, garlic aioli, crouton. And the unexpected welcomed guest is the potatoes!


Pulpo y Chorizo:
Grilled octopus and chorizo tacos with olives, fennel, onions and serrano Chile sauce.

Pato Con Mole
Seared duck breast with crispy corn croquette, cherry & pear compote, mole….what an awesome combination!!


We completed our date night by going back to the basics: chocolate cake and ice cream! They were so delectable and sure are not your basic cake and ice cream!
