Four of us dined and had some appetizers, the variety offered is staggering. Entrees this time were fish and chips, salmon, scallops and chiopini. Every entree was great. We even had some desert. Too bad it’s so far from Colorado!

Reviewed By Keith B - Oak Park, California

We have dined at Tuscany for years and every visit is consistently good. The food preparation and Incredible flavors reminds me of my dining experiences in Italy. They put effort in to their dishes and its obvious. In my opinion there is no Italian restaurant in the area that compares and that extends to Los Angeles. I also want to mention that Kevin our waiter makes the dining experience a complete pleasure - thanks Kevin for your attentive service and personality.

The Stonehaus

Reviewed By chezjim - Los Angeles, California

Perhaps the first thing to know about the Stonehaus is that it has its own vineyards. Yes, actual vineyards you can walk through. I don't know that you can get actual wine made from the grapes, but what is offered is varied and excellent. The food offerings in the Stonehaus itself are light but varied. They often have very nice music as well. On top of this, the cafe/wine bar is part of a larger complex with other bars and restaurants and a lovely little miniature lake. So overall it's just a very sweet peaceful place to be, with just the right amount of sociability, if you want it, or places to sit comfortably alone. A rare spot in LA and worth seeking out.

Far and away the best deli in the Conejo Valley, Brent's serves consistently excellent food, especially sandwiches. The soups are also very good. I usually order and pastrami sandwich or Turkey melt and my family enjoys the varieties of egg breakfast dishes.

Mediterraneo

Reviewed By Martin C - Seaside, California

Very nice. Décor, location by a golf course / lake, lovely.

The table olive tapenade is wonderful. I actually included it with my salad dressing. Lunch sandwich was a grilled chicken with brie cheese: to die for. You don't need the entire sandwich as it is very rich. I suggest sharing.

I am a foodie, a cook and difficult to please. With this being said, I'll be back.

Backlit wall panels of semi-precious stones, such as carnelian and onyx, create a dramatic dining atmosphere. Bamboo floors, Japanese antiques and chandeliers grace the main dining room, while silk lanterns hanging over the sushi bar give an exotic feel.

A variety of sushi, sashimi and specialty hand rolls complement delectable Asian-influenced seafood creations. The menu offers many options to sample a variety of dishes, intended to be shared at the table. Also pairing well with Japanese cuisine is an extensive wine list featuring choices from California and around the world.

Very good service and atmosphere. The sushi is excellent and the sake menu is outstanding. The dinner menu dishes that are not Sushi oriented were a bit disappointing. This is an expensive, upscale restaurant that is appropriate for a special event, like an anniversary, birthday, etc.

Boccaccio's Restaurant

Reviewed By Steven C - Malibu, California

This was our second visit. They have a lovely patio right above the lake (Westlake) and comfortable indoor room. Noise level is low, so you can have a conversation. The drinks are generous and well made. The food (seafood risotto and spaghetti/meatballs) was first rate; the service is friendly and attentive. In short, nothing we didn't love about this place.

Pearl District

Reviewed By GeorgeDubiecki - Los Angeles, California

This restaurant never misses a beat.
The service is always so professional and attentive. Timing is perfect.
I started with the Caesar salad. The dressing is delicious. The cheese crisp is a good touch.
I asked for an appetiser portion of the scallop with corn and bacon bits. I could have had a main course portion it was so good.
I followed that with the filet mignon, cooked rare plus. The people in the kitchen understand temperature of meat. It was perfectly cooked.
The mushrooms and heirloom carrots were wonderful.
This is the Best restaurant in the whole area.
My wife had the six hour braised beef, which she loved.
She also had the Caesar salad and loved that too.

Aroha is not for everyone!
But if you appreciate amazing food quality, if you appreciate all the ingredients are naturally and humanely grown and imported from New Zealand, if you can appreciate that most of the produce is grown within 15 mile from AROHA, and can really appreciate food quality, Aroha if fro you!

For me and my three friends it was a delightful evening on all counts! It was the first in a long time that a dared eating a full three course dinner and did not have to deal with any negative consequence. I had meats, and chicken and fish and side and the quality was so good that everything agreed with my system; I had no heartburn or any digestion problem, That is food integrity across the board!

The raw ingredients used at AROHA are top quality and the world class young chef, Gwyth, performs miracles in the kitchen. The rack of Elk was exquisite; the chicken melted in our mouths and the fish was a delight.

In short, if you are looking for something special and have the palate to appreciate top quality food combined with elegant and warm ambiance every bite while soaking in the aroma of the patio and the food, AROHA is for you.

If you are just looking to feed your hunger with another piece of abused chicken or cow, or doughy Pizza, the fast foods around the corner would be your perfect option.

The Grill on the Alley - Westlake Village

Reviewed By dlpa2000 - california

David, our server/waiter, while formal was much more friendlier than our last experience. Starter Mixed green salads were nothing special. Dover Sole was an ample serving and was ok but way overpriced. Kobe meatloaf was not to my husband's palate. Malbec and Guiness were fine. Dining setting is just not conducive to table conversation with another couple due to the noise level in the restaurant.
