Our first time dining a Le Sanglier, and it was a tasty and pleasurable time. We sat in a booth (white tablecloth) so had privacy. The mushroom appetizer was delicious, the bouillabaisse was surprisingly very good, and my sand dabs were prepared perfectly.
The staff and owner were very welcoming and friendly.

Mushroom and filo dough appetizer still great as was the brie. The duck was equally good and I loved the lamb chops, three double bone from the rack and lovely sauce. Cherries jubilee for dessert wonderful as the taste tartan. waiters all so nice and the owner, George kept coming over to be sure all was ok. We'll be back

This is a lovely spot for a real French dinner. It's pricey, certainly, but not outrageously so, and the food is often fantastic. In terms of appetizers, my wife's baked Brie was outstanding, and my endive w/blue cheese salad was nearly as good. For main dishes, I had a terrific duck a l'orange that was maybe a little too sweet, but still tender and juicy. And my wife's coq au vin was very tasty, just somewhat too salty. All in all, I'd love to come back and try a few more items from the menu. Next time...

A truly wonderful old school dining experience. Incredible food and service. Small dining room allows the voices of loud guests (there were a few) to carry. An annoyance but we didn't let it detract from the quality of the meal nor from the talents of the chef and the wonderful server! Having a hard time understanding how, given that the place has been there since 1970, we've missed it up until now!

Tonight was a little miss with our food, my crispy duck was a little dry and tough and my wife’s beef bourginon was way too salty.

My wife and I have traveled extensively throughout all of France, and the food is one of our delights. If one had their eyes closed before entering Le Sanglier, and then opened them when inside you would swear that you were in a French restaurant somewhere in France. The ambiance is so perfect, can hardly hear anyone so intimate conversations are easily achieved. Now the food. I am certainly not a connoisseur of French foods, but my palate cannot be deceived. We have eaten several times over 40 years and have never been disappointed regardless of what we have ordered. If you like French onion soup, then this is the best that I have had. My wife ordered the duck which was 1/2 a duck that was perfectly cooked...not overcooked, but juicy with a crisp skin. I had sweetbreads which were not on the menu, but the chef made this dish specially for me. I also had mushrooms in a pastry shell that was perfect. The bottom line is that if you love French food, in a lovely intimate room with attentive service then this restaurant is not to be overlooked. It is centrally located off of Ventura Blvd in Tarzana. Bon Appetit

Le Sanglier has been our favorite Valley restaurant for years. We save this special place for special moments. It is always great and never disappoints, The bouillabaisse is the best I have ever had and struggle to choose between it and the lamb chops. Don't forget the escargot, a martini, a nice glass of wine, and finish the evening with a grand marnier or chocolate souffle - Yum!!

We went Friday night as our date night. We have made Le Sanglier our special restaurant. The food, service, the atmosphere is always great. This is such a wonderful restaurant with an excellent chef, it is a shame it was not very busy. Most all the tables are in private booths and they take all the safety precautions. If you haven't tried this restaurant you owe it to yourselves to do so. There are very few restaurants left with this much old time class. This is a dress up kind of place that makes you feel like special.

We are so happy that Le Sanglier has stayed in business. The pandemic has affected so many restaurants. This is and has been a fine dining restaurant. If you are in a hurry, this is not for you. The staff, the food, the atmosphere are made for those who appreciate slowing down to enjoy both food and company. Each dish is prepared with skill from the Cordon Bleu trained chef. Booths are very private and what a pleasure to be able to hear the people in your party. This is where you bring someone you love. It is dress up night at Le Sanglier.
