    Great restaurant! We love going to the Odyssey, where service is there number one priority. Great food, and menu selections. The scenic view is breathtaking. We are greeted with a lovely welcome. Dining there is always a pleasure. We join the Loyalty Club. I will say it's worth it to join. We have gained many rewards.

    We scheduled brunch to celebrate my mom's 70th birthday but when we got there a water main has broke and the restaurant was closed. They wanted us to wait and see if it could be repaired and yet the plumber had not even arrived. I booked it online and they should have had my information to email or call with this problem but there was no communication that I saw. Not at all the birthday bash my mom was hoping for. I would have been okay if they would have had a suggestion for another place...something to help their customers. Not going there again...ever!

    The view was great. Service was terrible. Once we ordered our waiter took forever to bring us out our food. I'd say about an hour and twenty minutes. Some of the food was already a bit cold. Soda was flat. Kids Mac and cheese was nasty. The waiter never came to ask us how everything was or if we needed refills on our drinks. For the price that we paid you would expect top quality service. Waited about 30 minutes to get our check. By far the worst service we have ever received at any restaurant. The view is great. Other than that I would not recommend. Try at your own risk...

    Took my sister and son for the Saturday brunch. Our reservation was at 11 a.m. which was perfect because we got a window seat with amazing view. The selection at the buffet was amazing. Great made to order omelets, roast turkey, roast beef and the prime rib was fantastic! Other goodies included a great selection of sushi, snow crabs, salads, fresh fruit and waffles. Don't get me started on the desserts which were some of the best I've had including chocolate mousse, fruit tarts, coconut macaroons (fantastic) and assorted cakes and cookies. That meal was fit for a queen. Waitress was accommodating and plates were regularly removed. Definitely going back.

    I reserved a table for 8 (7 attended). I sent a message with my reservation saying we were celebrating birthdays for two 18 years olds. We were surprised when the server Jesus brought two slices of cheesecake with candles for each of the kids. VERY nice!! The atmosphere was pleasant and relaxed. The food was delicious and abundant. The waffle server (female) was very very nice.

    Dined on 8/16/2014
    Food was very good - quite expensive. Spectacular view. 4 weddings going on simultaneously and we were one of the non wedding tables that were kinda just forgotten. We had 3 or 4 different server/waiters- I think because the place was so busy with weddings. So the cake with candle I ordered days before was out and forgotten. The interior is quite rundown which is surprising because they must be bringing in serious cash with all the business. They really bed to upgrade the interior to fit prices and view. The steaks we had were very good though and will probably try again.

    We came here for brunch on Sunday and the food was amazing. The atmosphere was also great! I had an amazing time. We went later in the day though and it seemed like only one server was working, so it felt understaffed. I have also been here for happy hour, get there early/right on time for a good table in the bar and the sangria is awesome!

    Hello- The Odyssey was built in 1970 and needs a major rennovation. Everything is still original from 1970. Ceiling needs allot of work along the the fire sprinkler that are rusted out. The building needs to be gutted and rennovated very much. WAY OUTDATED!!!!!!!!!! Food and service was AWESOME, but the building needs alot of work.....The hill in from needs to be also landscaped. I'm a firefighter and it's a fire hazard to the restuaurant and near by residences. Thank you.

    The quality and the varieties in the brunch buffet were outstanding. It is a bit pricy, especially if you are not a meat-eater or a morning-meat-eater, and/or not in the mood of eating in large quantities. Two options (unlimited refill vs 1-time or vegetarian etc), priced variably, would be great; with a deal like this, if I had lived in LA, I would be regular for the brunch. Also, one thing which is left weak in the buffet was cheese, especially for foreigners and those who would like to eat cheese as it is. The scenery and atmosphere was great. The service was outstanding. We had real fun trying this place.

    Too bad the food didn't match the great view, the food looked and tasted like it had been sitting there for a while, the ribs were hard, the crab legs, oh never mind there wasn't any!!! It took more then 45 minutes before the mountain of ice had any crab legs available, the omelette and pasta bar had only one person taking order as well as going to the kitchen to refill the empty ingredient containers, I give her an applause for running up and down like crazy managing all this things her self, while I was watting for her to take my order she must of asked 5 different people to bring her mushrooms, nobody care to help her, but all this resulted on a very long wait for my omelette, I consider my self a very reasonable person, but this wasn't

    The server that waited us is a gem. She met all our needs plus. With 44 years working there,she would be a wonderful spokesperson for the business. For the food most was O.K. The fried rice was way to gummy with big chunks of meat,and,way to much spices in It,I also had pork sausage not cooked all the way thru,but overall the rest was O.K We were sch,for 9:00, we got there at 9:50 and had to wait outside,they let another couple in to use the restroom,but then locked the door again. We were let in at 9:05 , the other couple was able to stay in there. Your server was so delightful,that we will be coming back,more Sundays then usual, for,Great service,good food, and a History Lesson about our neighborhood. Yea

    No objections from this satisfied customer. What a view! What a great menu and I loved the open buffet Can't find a better place to see the entire valley and enjoy good food with loved ones. We went for a family reunion and all left happily impressed. We will go back again especially for the brunch. This is the best deal in the valley and probably in Los Angeles County, for a Sunday Champagne Brunch. You owed it to yourself to check this gem out. You will not be disappointed.

    Went here for a birthday brunch with 10 people and we were seated near a door in a room filled with large parties and lots of kids. I have no problems with kids but our group had none and it would have been nicer had they sat us in an area that was not filled with kids. We were also near the kids food set up which made it worse. We still made the best of it but next time, I'll request a different area. Food was good...they have a nice brunch and very nice view outside.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2004

    New York Steak was barely edible. Gristle and cartilage made it almost impossible to cut, let alone chew! We figured it wouldn't do any good to send it back. This was probably the quality they offered. But at $29.95 a steak, pretty outrageous. The wine by the glass was a generous pour, however. As this was a reunion of sorts, we ignored the negative and just enjoyed our conversation and the beautiful view as we sat at the window. Had not been there in years and I see no reason to go back.

  • Well we went to the Odyssey
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 11/25/2010
    Well we went to the Odyssey for a holiday brunch, and I got food poisoning off of the Green Lipped Mussels. Other than the Mussels and their revenge the food was tasty and good, and for a holiday brunch it was not too bad, albeit noisy. They comp'd us another meal because of the food poisoning, and that was okay, but left a lot to be desired. The carved prime rib did not taste as fresh as it might, and the servers had some problems with understanding one's requests. Albeit it is a great venue, overlooking the SFV I don't think we will be back, at my birthday the waiter was less than attentive, and then the two brunches left much to be desired. I wish I could have liked it more, but I do not feel that it is worth the cost.

    I have to admit the view is beautiful. The food ordinary. The stuffed mushrooms were not good at all and tasted like they had been frozen then warmed up in the microwave. My friend had the steak which she said was good. I had the scallops which were nothing special. The mojitos were delicious, they do pour a good drink there.

    This was a very pleasant place to linger over lunch with a friend. The view was spectacular, and the interior was impressive. The food was decent, but the menu choices were very limited - and they had run out of the one item my friend really wanted. There is also a buffet on weekdays, with a different type of cuisine each day (e.g., seafood, Italian). We would be interested in trying the buffet next time.
