It's the Canyon, and we're glad it's there. The food is good. For my money, they miss on the connection with. Try the wild mushroom ravioli.

We came for dinner day one and got back for lunch day two. Says it all. We had our kids with us (11 and 13). They loved the food and the place.

Canyon Bistro was such a great choice in Topanga, we had the best burgers ever! It’s pricey be prepared to spend $80 plus dollars but all the food lived up to our expectations!

This restaurant in a mini mall is more straight laced than most places in topanga. The food is good, friendly waiters, good place to have a long conversation with a friend.

This bistro in scenic Topanga Canyon is a good option if you're driving through or especially if you're going to a concert at the Corazon Performing Arts venue, which is directly across the street. The restaurant features an outdoor patio (that has heat lamps for...when it's cooler) as well as indoor seating, and there is parking around the complex in which it's situated. With a menu offering various very appealing burger options (including turkey and veggie), several seafood dishes, and entrees ranging from rack of lamb to filet mignon to veggie lasagna and risotto options, as well as a lovely salad selection, there is something here for everyone. The blue burger was wonderful, and the mussels, whiile very small, were very tasty and served with a generous serving of crusty bread with which to mop up the delicious broth. The sweet potato fries were delicious. Their wine bar is small but appealing, and they have an interestingly eclectic wine list, including French selections - from Cote du Rhone, Bordeaux (St. Emillion, Pomerol, Margaux), Provence, Alsace -- as well as various domestic options (Santa Barbara, Paso Robles, and even a local Topanga selection). Friendly, laid-back service staff and unhurried atmosphere make this unpretentious place a worthwhile stop in this beautiful spot. Very good!More

One of the best burgers - grass fed beef - yes meat - port wine onions, arugula, bacon mustard and an oven dried tomatoes (i’m sure I’m missing something) with a nice brioche bun and a fantastic waiter, Sal!

For a month of editing, we had lunch there nearly every day. We found the food to always be of high quality. The daily specials were indeed “special”. We always found the staff to be very friendly and only on a few extremely busy days...did we ever felt like we waited for our food. But I understand. There’s only so many meals you can prepare at once! Overall, I look back at my visits there very fondly! Nice work ethics, good food, reasonable pricing!More

A small restaurant, with a relaxed atmosphere and a surprisingly selective wine/beer selection (including several Belgian-style options). The hostess seemed grumpy but from then on the service was good. The food was generic, coffee excellent.
