C.F. Food Kitchen
Appetizers were great, fish was great, Wellington was over on temperature but tasted great anyway. Deserts were great. I know fine dining usually doesn't include kids, but I would go more often if there was a kids menu.
We had a very lovely birthday dinner celebration at CF Food Kitchen. This restaurant truly is a hidden gem - tucked away in the corner of a strip mall at the corner of Woodley and Devonshire. If you did not know about this restaurant, you might never see it. The layout is a bit odd in front, owing perhaps to the configuration from the prior tenant, and the restaurant itself is not "fancy", but the food and service are excellent. Everything we have had on the menu has been outstanding, and the staff are very attentive./
This restaurant is an amazing little gem in the San Fernando Valley. The dining area is nice but the food is amazing and will for sure satisfy your culinary tastes.
Beef Wellington smelled boiled and th me fried Brie was fried in the same oil as the crab cakes. It was not good food at all unless you like to settle for something mediocre pretending to be amazing.
It was an absolute delight dining here with Sylvia as our server. She’s probably one of the best servers I’ve ever had ... ever! She’s attentive to our needs, a great balance between being friendly and professional, and appeared to be genuinely nice. The restaurant itself is just tiny, no overwhelming decors, nor elaborate menu. But everything was perfect! All our food came out exactly how we want them, and all delicious. It’s a great place for a get-together, a date night, or just for any reason at all. I like how it’s big enough to not feel claustrophobic, but small enough to have good conversations with everyone in your table. Highly recommended!
Chef Flores constantly produces fantastic food. I have never been disappointed. Waitress is friendly and always helpful.
It was a surprise find in the Valley. The perfect spot for the four of us friends to dine for our annual Christmas get together. Many choices on the menu. The food was great. Our waitress was very attentive.
Service from the moment I entered to the moment I walked out was impeccable and food was delicious and true to its Cajun form
I have had the pleasure of eating here 3 times in the last 4 months and every time is better than the last
Great food, great service. Warm and wonderful owners. Had the pork chop and hubby had veal chop. Everything was delicious as always.
Every time I have come here my experience has been wonderfully memorable. The food is incredible and I crave their beef wellington. The only problem is I have to get it every time! Though I have sampled some of their other dished which are also incredible. Every time I walk in the restaurant they remember me which makes me feel like a valued customer. Every person I have taken here has absolutely fallen in love with this gem. I was sad when i moved farther away from this restaurant, but make special trips just to dine here because it is so worth it! I highly recommend C.F. Food kitchen, you will not be disappointed!
Just in love with this place. Thought about keeping it a secret, but more than that, we want the business owner and staff to succeed - what a special place!! We'll probably go weekly. Affordable quality. Supremely delicious. Wanna try it aaaaaall... Thank you, CF!
Great food and service! The food at this restaurant is great.
We were so surprised by the quality of the food! It was tasty, a decent value and the best service I have seen in a while. I cannot say how my wife and I were overwhelmed by the taste and quality of the food. All I could think about was going back with friends.
Our waitress could not have been more attentive. She knew the menu and what to recommend.
Being in a strip mall can be deceptive. Feel adventurous and try Chef Flores creations, you'll be glad you did.
great freindly service. high quality food.
This restaurant is a hidden gem. If you’re interested in great food and service without trendiness and pretension then this place is for you.
Our server made us feel like we were the only couple in the restaurant, even though she was responsible for all of the tables. She was fast, attentive, very friendly and knew the menu inside and out.
The food was prepared and presented to perfection. I ordered the pecan and pear salad, lamb and fruit tart. My wife ordered the beef tournedo and cheesecake. My wife declared it the best meal she’s ever had.
Don’t let the strip mall setting deter you. Inside is greatness.
2nd visit-still love the place! Salmon, filet, Wellington, lamb have all been outstanding. We’ll be back and our friends are bringing their friends.
Staff and food are fabulous! We love this little gem in the San Fernando Valley.
Our dinning experiences are always enjoyable. Great food, service, and a personal connection has formed through the years with the staff. They know our family and provide an atmosphere worth coming back to.
Great place ! reasonably priced and the food is very good, Service is awesome!
One of the people ordered the seafood pasta and was not happy. The amount of pepper was so strong her mouth was burning. She had the rest of us taste it to see if it was just her, and everyone agreed. They did take it back and attempted to solve the problem.
Brought another couple here, long time friends. The food is outstanding and the service was good. I do wish they had some place to wait while our table was being readied. I am handicapped and cannot stand for over a minute or two without pain.
They have a three course combo deal and we all got that, I highly recommend that, it is a great deal. You get a choice of starter, a main course with veggies and a dessert for around $30-40.
Three of us got the Beef Tournedos and one got the Beef Wellington, all were great. I got the Rabbit empanada as my starter and cheesecake for dessert. Great food, great conversation, we stayed for over 3 hours talking and enjoying the food.
I love this place. The food is excellent and the service fabulous. Sylvia always makes you feel special. My favorites. Lamb chops, pork chop, Osso Bucco, salmon. Everything is fresh and perfectly prepared. If you haven’t been you must try it!
Chef Flores (CF Kitchen) is from El Salvador but the cuisine is classically French. Our 3-course meal was delicious. The Pear & walnut salad was fresh & light. My Osso-Bucco was tender and the flavorful. The plate was full and pretty to look at. Sylvia, Chef's wife, served us and made sure the meal was presented in perfect time. Hate it when they try to rush you along! This was our first time but won't be our last. I have already picked out what I want next time - the Brie appetizer, Steak Diane and Whipped garlic potatoes. Key lime pie. Reasonably priced for the gourmet experience. Family owned and run restaurant in the corner of a mini Mall. A few small tables with clean white linens. Nothing fancy but the food is very good!
Everything was great except the glasses of wine are served in a half pour.
Neighborhood hidden gem! The food and service is always great this is a bust try restaurant.
What a lovely little find! It's not usually an easy task to find something unique and delicious when I'm taking parents out in the area, but so glad that this place popped up on my radar. Brought my parents here for a belated birthday dinner, and had a lovely time. Overall, food was delicious without being too filling. Portions are on the smaller side, but is rounded out with flavor. The Pecan Crusted Halibut was a little dry, but still tasty. Big Easy Shrimp & Scallops was great--but if you're not into spice, might want to try something else. It was fairly mild for me, but will pack a punch if you're not used to the heat.
Been here several times. This time we had guests from out of town and they were very impressed. We are always proud to bring new people to this establishment. The server is amazing and always remembers our names. The chef is top notch and knows how to make meat tender (which most chef's don't know how to do).
I highly recommend everyone to try it at least once!
You might say it is pricey but once you are done with your meal and your experience you will say it was worth every cent and a great evening spent and enjoyed.
I went in with no expectations and left with a high level of admiration for this great find. Outstanding food and service.
Outstanding! The food was amazing and the service was friendly, attentive, and very helpful when answering my questions.
Great restaurant. Wonderful service
Will comeback again
At first, I thought we must be in the wrong place. I wasn’t even sure which door to go into. I almost went for a Thai massage! We were early, too, and there was only one table with guests. But the host/waitress was so charming and warm, we wanted to put HER in our to-go box! The food was PERFECT. I had the catfish and my sister had the jambalaya, both cooked and presented beautifully. We were both kind of a long way from home, but we would both agree to seek it out again. What an unassuming little gem. I wish it were around the block from me.
A hidden gem in the San Fernando valley
Very noisy and warm. Food very good. Parking atrocious. Wine just so-so.
Like everyone else says, it's definitely a hidden gem! Great food, great service, it was an excellent meal!
The food is always delicious and prepared to the highest standards. The noise level is very low, and a casual conversation is easy to had. Reservations are highly recommended, to insure a table when you want it. The wait staff is very attentive and want you to have the best dining experience.
Excellent food and service!!!!!!!! We will definitely return and tell friends and family about this fantastic restaurant!
Excellent cuisine, served beautifully and elevated. The crab cakes and sauce were the best I have ever had, filled with meat. The host, Silvia, is very attentive, caring and made our exerpience even more memorable.
