California is known its excellent sources of fine produce. When combined with fresh fish, well raised poultry and meats all of the elements of fine dining exist. Rustic Canyon brings it all together to provide a satisfying experience in a low key relaxed setting.

The Gazpacho was amazing. The salmon appetizer was superb. The break and butter were great. The cote de boeuf was great. Even the parking was great. (The bartender was not.) It is noisy, so sit in a booth.More

Shared dishes, some were too small to share. The food was all very good, but the service was below average, non existent. We brought our own wine, and waiter looked at the wine, checking it out, like it needed his approval. Never once came around...More

I loved everything this restaurant does -- uses the whole plant, combines tastes and textures and flavors creatively, presents it beautifully, and provides very ample portions. We bought the new Jeremy Fox cookbook just to look up his recipes while we ate them! Especially loved...More

We chose this restaurant because we were impressed by the chef's previous restaurant in Napa, Ubuntu. This is far from the brilliant vegetarian menu he created there, but certainly equally brilliant. You could see and taste the care that they take in selecting ingredients, creating...More

Fantastic dinner with amazing dishes. Definitely the best dinner we had during our two week trip to LA. Pricey but worth it. A little loud but still a great atmosphere. Will come back soon!

One of my favorite restaurants in this LA trip. I had been told I wouldn't need a reservation for a bar seat, and luckily I arrived somewhat early before 8 pm on a Saturday, because half an Thur later the place was packed. Service was...More

We shared a chicken meal here on a Thursday night. The chicken cost $32. For that you got a thigh and a leg… And that basically was it. There was a dab of carrot mash on the plate but it was minuscule. The chicken was...More

One of the best restaurants I have been so far in LA (Santa Monica). Delicious food, great wine selection (you'll spend some time choosing your wine, trust me...), and top notch service. A little overpriced compared to other restaurants at the same level, but overall,...More

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
