Vietnamese Pork Belly=a must have. Perfectly cooked with a great amount of heat. Octopus starter was great, and I don't even like octopus. The main course/trio? Buffalo short ribs were falling off the bone and delicious. The Elk was absolutely amazing. The Emu? Well, I'm glad I can say I had it, although it wasn't something I'd specifically order again....

Ownership had changed 6 months ago & it seems just the right mix of keeping the atmosphere that makes Saddle Peak special and adding some new things. Love the old hunting lodge atmosphere, eating by the fire, and the outdoor covered patios. I like the Mon-Wed $39 3 course Supper menu. We all had the caesar salad- that was light... More

Restaurant with a peculiar setting in a wonderful area is truly worth a visit. The table was in a great place, the service impeccable and very attentive. Good choice of entrees and wine selection. All the plates we ordered were well coocked and presented and the only - minor - defect was a poor espresso, not in line with everything.

My wife and I walked there while staying at a near by Airbnb. The restaurant ambiance is rustic and quaint. The staff is very friendly and attentive. There is plenty of game and unique flavors to satisfy someone looking for something unique. The portions are small but he flavor experience is there.

The restaurant had been recommended by a friend, and it was crowded on Saturday night. Apparently it is an in place although we didn't know why. It was so dark that if there was any interesting decor to see, we didn't see it. Dark outside so no view even if we hadn't been in a corner. The food was OK,... More

Yes, it's a rustic and historic building in the Santa Monica mountains. Sadly, intoxication from the extraordinary setting causes A LOT of people to give 5 star reviews. It's just not a 5 star place. The service has gone downhill and is picking up speed. If you sit in the bar, AT the bar, you MAY get decent service if... More

The Saddle Peak Lodge is a beautiful place in a beautiful location and that is that. We sat in a room with roughly 15 tables (guessing) and one waitress, very nice waitress but one so...no service. The food was mediocre at best, my dish, pork chop, came grossly overcooked and -oddly- cold, I tried to change it but the waitress... More

Expensive, but worth it. Fantastic food selection (Their Elk Steak is to die for) beautiful surroundings and their help staff is both knowledgeable and friendly.

A fun experience. Rustic out of the way and close to beautiful Malibu. Saddle Peak Lodge is great for a romantic dinner or fun with friends.
