Californian | Glendale, San Fernando Valley / Valencia

We had a large group and the staff was very welcoming and accommodating. They turned down the music for us and let us play the piano (we were the only party in the restaurant then). Our multigenerational family group all loved the food, the service, and the warm holiday atmosphere. The chef came out to greet us too, which was a lovely gesture. Highly recommend this restaurant for special occasions! More

French | Sherman Oaks, San Fernando Valley / Valencia

I found this jam to be just that, a treasure hidden by an otherwise simple exterior. The inside presented a French chic approach with white table cloths, wood chairs, a shiny bar, and staff that went the extra mile to make our simple meal a great one. My mother and i enjoyed the Dine LA lunch menu of pumpkin ravioli, or tail, and warm pear and ice cream. In addition, they made my favorite Aperol spritz that isn’t available everywhere. This was a fantastic experience and i can’t wait to go back again! More

At Boccaccio’s restaurant, we offer guests a unique experience. We serve a classic, traditional menu celebrating the cuisine that defines fine dining — choice Steaks, Veal, Filet Mignon and Lobster Tail (and Baked Alaska for dessert!), along with classic Continental favorites including an array of savory pasta dishes.

Each bite is enhanced by our serene setting at Westlake Lake, a private lake nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains and surrounded by elegant residences. Locals often arrive by sailboat for a special lunch or romantic sunset supper at Boccaccio’s, and viewing the docks, boats and waterfront make every meal here truly an experience to remember.
