We came here to celebrate my friends birthday and was it the best choice. Their mango habanero shrimp is amazing and the cesar plank salmon is so flavorful. We got a window seat per request by me and we got to see a nice view of the valley

The wait was a bit long even though we had a reservation. 25 minutes but there’s comfortable seating and out doors to walk around. Our dining area was super busy when we got there and the servers were slammed. It quieted down after a bit and they were very attentive. Food was great. The bottomless mimosas and super buffet is the best. We’ll be back!!!

I have been eating here since the late 1980’s. It has always been a good meal. Their Sunday brunch is the best, and the best value I’ve ever had. Saturday night was dinner with 2 gurkfryebds. We had 7pm reservations (through open table) while they were not that busy, we did wait 1/2 hour to be seated. We were in no rush as we just wanted time to catch up with each other. But it took 45 minutes to get our drinks, and it was an hour before we ordered. In spite of all that the meal was excellent. It was eat LA week, and they had a promo 3 course meal due $39. We all ordered it. As appetizers we had the shrimp and the beet Dakar- both were excellent. The clam chowder was just ok, and Luke warm when served. We all ordered the salmon for the main course, and it was fantastic. The 3rd course was dessert. Two of us ordered the creme brûlée (it was excellent) and the other had the chocolate cake- which she enjoyed. As I said, I’ve been coming here over 30 years. The view can not be beat- you overlook the entire valley. It’s so beautiful at night when it’s all lit up. its a beautiful facility, with private rooms to rent. The bar also overlooks the entire valley. I moved out of that area on 2000, but still love to eat there when I go back. Donny was our waiter- and was very personable and friendly... he did a great job.

I love Odyssey. We were there last weekend and enjoyed some delicious food. The view is spectacular and the vibe is homey but also quite fancy. Our waiter, Donny, took very good care of us and was there just enough to make sure we had everything we needed but not so much that he was at all intrusive. The only negative I can think of is that the music was not to our taste and was a little bit intrusive. We would have preferred something quieter and less of a specific genre that we don’t care for. Still, our overall experience was excellent and we would definitely recommend Odyssey for a special night out.

It was too dark and was hard to see the food though the candle was on the table.
Also it was hard to see the face each other.
The other table customers were using the light of iPhone to see the menu.

The main dish was very good though we waited quite long time after appetizer & salad.

The wine recommended by the waiter was too sweet for me.

Although the meal itself was good, the service left a lot to be desired.

No table settings, period. Just an empty wooden table? There were no bread plates on our table, yet bread and butter and spreads were brought out. No one bothered to bring any bread plates out, throughout the meal. It was extremely difficult to flag a waiter, or any staff down.

The wait time to receive our meals was beyond long, slow slow service; the waiter told us our meals were going to be out shortly, and half an hour later we still did not have our meals.

No manager on site overlooking the chaos in the dining room.

Overall our experience to celebrate our 11 year wedding anniversary, which by the way was written in on the reservation; and ignored by the staff— shockingly, was mediocre at best.

The food was great except the Calif omelette which was too much vegetable and not enough egg, and the outside was scorched brown. We also didn’t get bread right away and had to ask for it much later, and never got the tabasco we requested.
But overall we love Odyssey 💕

My wife and I were married here a thousand years ago. First time back. It was nice. Pretty good food choices. Lighting was good. We asked to sit at a window table but weren’t granted that. Kinda upset me because there were a few window tables open the whole time we were there. Food was above average. Waiters were extremely slow. Very slow. We were seated over five minutes before we were helped. A few times our drinks were empty and we had to ask someone to get our waiter. Price was good. About $50 per person. We didn’t buy alcohol.

The Odyssey was very understanding and flexible with my plan to propose at the restaurant. I made my reservation online through opentable which was easy. Talked to the restaurant about my plans and they accommodated me. It was also our two year anniversary so they provided a complimentary cheesecake slice dessert that said “Happy Anniversary”. We enjoyed the calm romantic ambiance and the lighting was dim but it gave it a romantic touch. The views were amazing and although the patio was closed due to high winds that night they allowed us to check out the views and I was able to propose. Thank you Odyssey! It was a memorable fun experience we enjoyed.

Love this place. Took my boyfriend for his birthday dinner. Showed up early and caught a basketball game at the bar & got to see practically 360 view of the sunset above the city - So beautiful. Great happy hour menu. Amazing vibe all around. The interior style is almost old timey ship like. The dinner was amazing - server was perfect. We got a burger and prime rib, started with habenero mango shrimp (all three choices I would order again FOR SURE!). I can't wait to bring friends and family back here!

I lives in the valley but never get to go try this place ever since. Today is my birthday and I decided to go to a place close by and not too crowded. Megan yes MEGAN! She was our served! Woow, She’s the BEST waitress to impressed! She offered me a FREE birthday cake and so helpful to lighten up the candle when it’s so windy outside! We didn’t want any desert after but she was NICE enough to give me and make my day even more special! Thanks again! 🥰

Many items on the breakfast buffet were cold. Even when staff would bring fresh dishes out the dish seemed to be Luke warm.

This is the second time we have had the same problem at this restaurant and will no longer go there. The service was terrible we waited 40 minutes after we were seated for the drinks we ordered, After 15 minutes I had to flag down a waiter and ask for my soup. 20 more minutes I still didn’t have my drink, we asked and spoke to the manager and left the restaurant without eating.

I was really disappointed with the fixed menu that was provided that I was unaware of because of it being new years eve. 3 first , 3 second courses, and 3 desserts. I had requested a window which was no guarantee, so I decided to wait for a table with a view. Once seated, our server asked if we were ready to order, he handed my wife and I menu and walked away, didnt ask if we wanted anything to drink to start. Once I looked at the menu, I only new of one thing I would eat, filet mignon. It took another 20 mins for him to pitch us the wine, which I wanted a mixed drink, which I never received. My wife and I both ordered the filet mignon, which was ok, but $96 ok. The entree came with a beef carpaccio which was the worst I've ever had. I also noticed that everyone there wasnt finishing the carpaccio either which says alot. My 9 year old daughter ordered the chicken strips which tasted like they were cooked in old oil along with the fries. I did talk to the manager that day and I told her I was unaware of the fixed menu because I had booked online and let her know how dissatisfied with the food, she said she would make it right and took my bill, she came back and said she would take off the chicken strips, which she did, but stuck me with the horrible experience, bad food and customer service, which was still over 200 bucks. Oh I did get a complimentary piece of chocolate cake to go since it was my anniversary, and my troubles. I'm sure I wasnt the only one that day who was dissatisfied. If the manager had cut my bill in half I would give a better rating. But to listen to me and then do nothing but remove my daughters chicken strips off my tab, is a slap to my face. I would have paid 5 times the amount for a cheeseburger if it tasted good.

My husband and I came here for our wedding anniversary and we had a fabulous time. Our waitress Megan was awesome and the food was so delicious. The ambiance was perfect and the sunset view was so breathtaking. We have future plans to bring our family and friends here to share the pleasant experience we had.

We were there for a “staff lunch” so our time to dine was about 1-1/4 hrs. The restaurant wasn’t overly busy, certainly not crowded, but the service was extremely slow. The food and ambiance were outstanding, but would not choose Odyssey for a “limited time” meal again.

Our family went for the Christmas buffet dinner. The restaurant was beautifully decorated, the employees were attentive and the food was very good. Even though it was the last reservation time slot, there was plenty to choose from and a lot of variety.

There were no waiters in the room I dined in, just (super nice, efficient) people serving drinks and bussing dishes. Many of the buffet food trays were inhabited only by dregs, crumbs, icky bits and old garnish for the two hours I was there- particularly the salads and desserts. The whole scene was just was kind of seedy, overcrowded, rushed and "meh." The Odyssey boomer rep as being a place of elegance and respite is at most, overstated and at least, a thing of the past. Currently, the Odyssey is more of a "seen better days, was once a thing but not so much now" sort of an place. Hometown Buffet with a sushi bar. And I'm not sure why they ask folks if they would like a window seat when reserving a table. I always ask and have yet to actually win that lottery. It's a family tradition I am trying to figure out how to change.
