Fantastic "country" Ambiance here in LA

Great to see that the Inn of the Seventh Ray is still going strong...with it's unique location overlooking the creek. The candlelit ambiance is great and the food is good. We went on a Monday night when they have a prix fix menu- 3 courses at the bargain price of $33. Well worth it. Delicious... read more

I cannot believe I have lived in LA for as many years as I have and not been to this jewel before. A group of six went to celebrate a birthday and it was absolutely lovely. Nestled in the woods by a creek just off Topanga Canyon, you feel as though you are transported to another world. Like magic, a... More

I was fortunate to get a reservation for 2 on Valentines Day here. The atmosphere of the restaurant is second to none for a romantic dinner. With a complimentary chorus of frogs chiming from a nearby creek, we were seated inside the building, close to the fireplace. The tasting menu for that day was excellent and certainly worth the fixed... More

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.
