Would have been an easy five with decent service. The waiter took over ten minutes to bring our drinks and a bottle of wine, and completely forgot a glass of merlot until are entrees began to arrive. The owner (I think he was the owner)...More

Too expensive for the food. Bad service. Does not treat employees well. So many other good restaurants in Topanga, I'd avoid this one

Ambiance is lovely but loud - after all there is live jazz. The food is superb and a very lovely wine list. Best tuna tartar, crab cakes and mussels! The rack of lamb - delicious. Casual and comfortable.

Starting with the good part, the service was nice, the bistro about 1/2 full for dinner. First, they refused to pour a 1/2 glass of draft beer; I had to order the full pint. This has never happened in my experience, ever. So, no beer....More
