We sat outside and enjoyed s wonderful meal along with some excellent people watching. My wife had the mussels while I had the steak fries. Real bistro food at a reasonable price. I really enjoyed the service which was better than most of the places in the area

Very good mussels and fresh fish. Mac and cheese (kids) not fantastic. Pleasant atmosphere and attentive staff.

Shocking! But it's true. The best burger in LA does not reside in trendy Studio City, Culver City or Hollywood. It's in Topanga! This cool little bistro with outside seating serves the most amazing burger. Grilled, grass fed, quality beef. A fabulous grilled bun. And tomatoes that actually have some taste! If you are of a certain age and a... More

We live in the Marina, and came up to Topanga to see an afternoon play. It was wonderful, sunny day, and we were in a lovely mood for some dinner afterwards, no great expectations. I had researched and the CBWB was on on the top of our list. So relaxing to cruise down the hill with the top down, pull... More

Food was lovely and nice friendly staff. We sat outside which was lovely, and the bistro was very popular.

We came back because we enjoyed the food and service on our first visit a month ago. But this time the waitress did not serve our wine together and we had to remind her twice to bring my friends wine. The toasted bread was barely toasted and we did not get a knife to spread the butter. The waitress' bra... More

Hi Cathy, I'm sorry you did not have a good experience at my restaurant. These kids of things are unacceptable. We pride ourselves on good service food and service and I appreciate you letting me know. Can you tell me whether you were in for lunch or dinner please so I know who to speak to? Thank you, Larry Cohn,... More

We've lived in the area quite a while and were looking for a saturday morning brunch place. Well, this place is the bomb. Comfy, nice people, cozy, and very accommodating (we have twins). Highly recommended

A must if you're dining in the canyon! Best french onion soup ever...lovely sweet potato fries, butternut squash soup, Brussels sprouts with bacon, fish dishes and excellent burgers prepared to order. (They'll make your burger as rare as you want!) World-class jazz on weekend nights--check the schedule.

We had a party of ten with a reservation two weeks in advance. We waited 2 hours after we ordered to get our food. The food was fine if you like cold steak but we were so hungry by then we would have eaten anything. I'm not even going to mention the 20$ corkage. Not splitting the check. No bread.... More

I was very fortunate to find The Canyon Bistro last weekend. I was visiting a client in the area- which I am not familiar with- and after my meeting I drove around for some time before I finally came across the restaurant. I sat in the bar area of the very quaint and artistically decorated restaurant. I was immediately approached... More
