Angel City Cafe reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Don't rush over there!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIP
    Dined on 11/16/2012
    Only people in the Valley (because there is no good food!) would think it is good. Got the recommended ahi tuna taquitos and sea bass - both were marginal at best. Inexpensive is it's only redeeming quality.

    The staff (and owner) were super friendly and cared more about giving us the best experience than charging max $. It was very refreshing.

    Sea bass was great as was ahi taquito's. Split a chopped salad before entrees and ot was delicious. No alcohol license but no corkage fee if you bring your own. Makes this restaurant a great value.. The chicken eggplant Parmesan was also yummy.

    A very casual neighborhood restaurant with good food and friendly service. You can bring your own wine and we were not charged for corkage. Salads were tasty and good sized. You can order a half salad for one person or share a full size. Tri-tip with barbeque sauce and french fries came just as ordered, medium rare and quite good. We also had a dessert and coffee. Dinner was only $40 per couple (plus the wine we brought ourselves), so this is a great value, too. We will definitely return to try other menu items.

    Excellent neighborhood find in Woodland Hills. This BYO serves up creative and tasty dishes from a delightful, small menu. Highlights are the Ahi Tacquitos, the chopped salad, the Sea Bass, and the bread pudding. The bread pudding being unlike any preparation you've had before, and it's a reason in itself to visit Angel City Cafe. Specials, like our recent lamb "Milanese-style" can be extraordinary. Friendly, home-style service is sometimes frazzled but always concerned and caring. Decor is simple but has nice table top touches like linen napkins. Prices are unexpectedly low.

    Nice overall experience. Nothing amiss, but nothing to write home about either. In the context of the valley, it's fine. Compared with offerings in the city, it's wanting.

    Loved the limited menu.It made it easy to choose and food fresh. We weren't crazy about the Lobster tacos, but everything else was fine. Love the fact that we could bring our wine in and not get hit with a monster corkage fee. We will return. Very friendly and welcoming.

    The food is outstanding!!! The menu is limited but varied. It's also the same for lunch as it is for dinner. That said, I still keep coming back because the food is so delicious and reasonably priced. The young wait staff who have taken care of us have been gracious, helpful and efficient.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 9/22/2012
    This restaurant seems out of place, but the food is good and reasonably priced. We had the tri-tip w/ bbq sauce and fries and a salad. Everything tasted great and was properly prepared. The bbq sauce was good. The restaurant seems to have moved into an existing shop on Ventura Blvd, and it doesn't seem to have finalized its decor. For example, there were old curtain rods over the windows, but no curtains. Also, there were cut-outs near the bottoms of the booths, as if there used to be something there like a light switch or electric outlet. None of that affected the taste or price of the food - the most important parts of my dining experience. If pressed to complain about something, the service was slow at times - specifically t

    Heard very positive things about this local bistro, and the food did not disappoint, once we got it! Service was uncoordinated. Our food took forever, although tables near us were being served fairly quickly. Regardless the food was tasty, plentiful, and very reasonably priced. We will try it again based entirely on the food quality. Crossing my fingers that the service issue was isolated. As other have mentioned this is a BYOB spot, and everyone in the restaurant seemed to have brought their own wine, so don't be shy. There is also a liquor/wine store a block east, in case you forget.

    The best part - They don't have a liquor license and you can bring your own wine with no corkage fee. Also, the shrimp scampee atop true pomme frites is perfectly, plate- licking delicious with their home baked bread.

    We loved the dining experience--we were greeted graciously and given the opportunity to revise where we wanted to sit. Our two wait staff were efficient, helpful and friendly. The food was yummy! We couldn't stop oohing and aahing with every dish--starting with the house salad, with thin strips of cheese and salami and a caesar dressing--we shared the large salad--a meal in itself. We shared potato-crusted seabass with a lemon caper sauce--divine--and chicken/eggplant parmesan--very flavorful. Took most of 2nd dish home so we could get dessert--chocolate mousse (vry light but too intense for me) and white chocolate bread pudding (the only disappointment--2 slices of bread w/sauce and whipped cream--not a true "pudding."

    I ordered the potato crusted seabass. The white fish they serve is by no means seabass.

    Mushroom soup was outstanding as was the ahi tacquitos! But the tri tip was as tough as can be and the chicken dish w/eggplant was salty and chicken was tough too. The sea food and pasta dish was good. They are inexpensive but you don't get the best.

    We found this restaurant on Open Table and also checked Yelp reviews. All looked good, and it was. But we were surprised by the informal low key outside look on Ventura Boulevard. It did not look like a fine restaurant. The greeter was very friendly and we were seated by the large front window. We requested wine and were disappointed to learn they don't have a liquor license. OK, not that big a deal. We can bring our own bottle next time at no charge. The food on the limited menu was very good. The prices were not high. We would consider going back again for an informal dinner.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 8/2/2012
    This simple, unpretentious, somewhat out-of-the-way spot has a chef who is serious about good-tasting food. The bread and dipping sauce are so good you are in danger of not leaving room for the entrees, which are imaginative, delicious and nicely presented. No wines, but bring your own... no corkage fee. Well worth a visit, and you will return.
