This is the most magical spot. Chandeliers and fairy lights above a flowing creek. It's romantic and down to earth while providing fine dining with fantastic service. We sat outside on a 43 degree evening under three heat lamps and had the most amazing evening. Don't underestimate the chef- the simplest sounding dishes are still a step above. My family... More

We read several bad review but we found this restaurant very nice. Atmosphere was excellent, very romantic and the food was good too. There were very few tables occupied, so I guess I may have been there on a relaxed night, but we have nothing to complain. Would return.

This was our first official romantic date and it was my little night of heaven. Although we were dating for some time, and quite in love, I jokingly complained to Mac that he had never taken me on a real romantic dinner date, so he drove me up the L.A mountains to this very beautiful surprise location. The location is... More

This is a truly special place to visit. We went for dinner but would love to come back for brunch next visit. It's a little bit of a drive through Topanga Canyon but that just added to the experience for us. The place itself was magical, decorated throughout with subtle lighting on the tables and fairy lights through the trees.... More

The outdoor area of the restaurant is drop dead gorgeous at night with thousands of fairy lights twinkling in the trees and a little stream running nearby. This is definitely a feast for the eyes and because I always rate ambiance over food I gave it 5 stars. The food is pleasant enough but not spectacular and the wine while... More

A beautiful restaurant that pays attention to detail. The ambiance is elegant and magical, surrounded by nature. The food is very good, interesting and prepared with care. A bit on the pricey side, but it has proven to be a reliably great experience for special nights out.

Please consider the majority of the restaurant is outdoors. The lovely canyon setting and native plants come with bugs and little crawly things. Then note menu items feature ingredients that are organic, vegan & local as well as slyly suggestive- "aum-lettes" If that sounds fine to you, then you will love the most romantic, most relaxing sanctuary in crazed L.A....

Have been three times here each time we have never been disappointed. We ate outdoors on the patio surrounded by fairy lights

Having never heard of this restaurant before, I didn't know what to expect. As my husband and I followed the hostess through the outdoor seating area to our stream-side table, I was instantly captivated by the beauty and serenity. We've been to romantic restaurants before but this one is by far THE most romantic one we've ever been to! The... More

If you want elegance and romance combined, this is the place! In a beautiful spot (perfect for engagements and weddings), the food is really excellent and the service very friendly and professional. We ate in an outdoor patio with sufficient heat lamps to make it comfortable in the evening air. Flowers and Buddhas make it a special destination.
