Four of us dined last Sunday night at Le Sanglier and it was, in many ways, exactly as the reviews described it. Traditional - French - Paris in the Valley - Wonderful Food - Refined - etc. All of these comments are spot on. Where the restaurant failed for us was perhaps the dark side of "Paris in the Valley." Sabina is a California girl and orders in a "California way;" one of the things that she does not like is butter. Ordering food without butter is never a problem in LA but it was apparently a problem on Sunday night in Tarzana. When she asked if the mushrooms could be prepared without butter, the waiter (who appeared to also be the owner), said "that's disgusting" in a exceedingly condescending and, what I could only describe, as "Parisian" way. Needless to say, the comment was beyond rude and, while he never did appear back at our table, it generally clouded the rest of the service. So, to sum up, the food is very good (I had an endive salad, the wild boar chops, and a grand marnier soufflé) but I'll bet we are not the first diners to experience service that can bite you in the derriere.
