“Canyon Bistro in Topanga”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

My grass fed cheeseburger was perfectly medium rare as asked - itself a rare feat - and came on a La Brea Bakery bun. Always a treat. The sweet potato fries were crisp and delicious. The goat cheese salad was huge and had a nice raspberry vinagrette, but my husband felt that the Chevre was too mild for his taste. He was disappointed with his grilled artichoke. It didn't taste fresh and the special pesto aoili was lacking in basil flavor.
The atmosphere was pleasant and there was nice art on the walls. We were part of a large party and the service was smooth and efficient.
I liked it very much, and would be happy to return. The prices were moderate and there is plenty of parking in the big lot outside.

“Wonderful bistro menu with very fresh ingredients in a cozy canyon setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

This small, cozy bistro has a menu with something for everyone - fresh vegetable soups, truffle fries, organic salmon, grass fed beef. Every choice ordered in our party was fabulous. The only small drawbacks, bathrooms are located outside and a few minutes walk and only beer and wine served.

“Great Relaxing Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012 via mobile

After the hustle and bustle of a busy day in LA it is nice to be able to have a great restaurant to go eat and relax at. The location is great, the atmosphere is great and the cost is well worth it. The restaurant staff seems to put forth the extra effort to make dining here a great experience.

“patio and catering to vegan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

Great patio and a must is truffle fries and brussel sprouts. They will customize anything (LA Style) to Vegan or Vegetarian. The food is very good, but not to die for, an expected venue...not my to die for must see, but a stop on the patio for a beverage and treat for sure.
