Good food in a quaint beautiful setting

After hiking Topanga Canyon we were 1/2 starved to get to the Inn. It has tables in all kinds of nooks and crannies, and even a dog table for dining with canine friends. The women's room was very clean. We were put in a little gazebo with one table for four of us. Very comfortable. Service was a... read more

I visited Ca to, help celebrate a friends 80th birthday. I honor of that a table for five was booked at the Inn of the Seventh Ray to have lunch. When we arrived we found that the Inn was built on a hillside and one had to go down a series of brick steps to get to the restaurant proper.... More

I was there at least 25 years ago, but returned recently. We had delicious food while sitting beside a stream listening to frogs. It was so relaxing to eat great food and drink nice wines. We look forward to going back.

Food lacking in quantity and quality. A large wine glass with a tiny bit of wine. Flavor not wonderful. Waiters distant and slow.

The lunch menu is fairly priced with a few exceptions. The Thai Green Papaya Slad ( entrée) was one of the worst ripoffs I have ever had. For $16 you get about a half cup of shredded green papaya slivers topped by six baby shrimp. The wine list was extremely expensive and we called ahead to get a quote on... More

A bit pricey but a memorable place. Food is reliably very good, but not exceptional. Service is slow (not a problem if you're having a relaxing / romantic evening) but always friendly and the waiters try their best. The atmosphere is stunning and magical.

It was fun to dine here, but frankly a bit new-agey. Felt like my aura was being rated by the server. Food was good!

This place is really something else. They've put thought into the food; the presentation and the taste are great. And the ambiance is magical. I highly recommend this!

We went to this restaurant to celebrate a special occasion and were not disappointed. The atmosphere and decor are very special. Gauzy curtains and twinkling lights. The restaurant overlooks a creek (which was dry during this drought). The forest location was unique. We each chose a prix fixe menu (he the meat menu and me the vegetarian one). We were... More

I have heard about this restaurant for many years and finally spent the weekend in Topanga and ate here on a Friday night. I swear we had the best table in the house, right at the little creek. Service and food were impeccable. Strange thing, though. We called for a 7:00 reservation and were told they could accommodate us at... More
