Odyssey Ratings and Reviews
We've been customers for many years (since first moving to the valley in 1988) but Odyssey has gone "downhill" over time. The Sunday brunch used to include caviar, many more salad selections, more than one "soup" choice and other things that made it a more attractive value. This past Sunday (Feb 18) some down sides: There was exactly one soup, and when it ran out was not refilled for an hour; there were no soup bowls at all, and when I found a wait person to ask about this, they went in the kitchen and never came back -- 10 mins later, still no bowls. There was a sushi selection but I strongly suspect no real Sushi chef, and no dipping bowls at all. If you're going to offer sushi, there should always be soy sauce and dipping bowls -- lots and lots of them (what do they cost? a dollar each for really nice ones?). No condiments on the tables other than salt and pepper, which also seems a bit ridiculous for a restaurant serving such a wide variety of food types. After visiting Odyssey probably fifty times over 30 years, I'm quite sure we will not be back.
This is our second time here celebrating an occasion. The first time it was slightly above average rating in my opinion and I have decided to pass on leaving the review, I wanted to give this place another chance. I now truly regret coming back here.
First of all, I left 2 voice mails to confirm my reservation and had few questions, NOBODY called me back.
Second, we got there on time but got seated 30 minutes later. What’s the point of reservation?
Third, We did not know that there was a buffet brunch going on without any option of ordering food of off menu. The buffet was a DISASTER!!!!!!!!! So many people, half of the trays were empty and not restocked on time, low staff/guest ratio. Dirty plates everywhere. Food on the floor and on the chairs. I can go on, but I thought you get the point.
We always leave with a smile! Food is fantastic, service is awesome. Every employee from the moment you check in, escorted to your table and to service during your meal is all the way around a 5 star experience.. Thank you to everyone for making our celebration day so special. 😊
Went for Valentine's Day Had their Prix Fixe Menu ... my only complaint was our food did take a while to receive though it was delicious... received our 2nd course prior to 1st Course took forever to receive bread then once we did receive seemed like slivers of Sliced Bread rather than the hot crusty rolls others were receiving would've rather not had bread at all but appreciate the gesture .... considering the circumstances we completely understood and still enjoyed ourselves very much so even purchased a photo from the friendly photographer to commemorate the evening
We had an absolutely dreadful Valentine’s Day dinner here last night. I am so beyond disappointed.
As part of their prix fixe menu, I ordered the filet mignon medium rare and my fiancé ordered the chicken. His chicken was dry and flavorless - frankly it tasted like it had been left sitting under the warming lamps for too long. And the orzo pasta that came with it was extremely bland. My steak was well done in most places, with a small area of medium well in the middle. I immediately alerted our server who indicated she’d be getting me a new steak...but 5 minutes later she came back with the overcooked steak and asked me if I wanted it more done or less done. I re-explained that I had ordered it medium rare and would like it that way, to which she replied “oh I think it looks medium.” Our server then disappeared for 15 minutes. My fiancé finished his food. We waited another 10 minutes before asking her for an update and she explained that the kitchen had a lot of tickets. Five minutes later, our server said my steak was ready and she was waiting for a manager to bring it out to me. Finally, 35 minutes after I sent the first overcooked steak back, our server arrived with a new steak. I cut in to the steak and it was predominately well done, with one small medium well spot. It tasted like a badly charred hamburger (not a filet mignon from a $95 prix fixe menu). Dismayed, I told our server it was again overdone and she said a manager would be coming over to speak with me. A manager finally stopped by and I explained the situation to her. They took my meal off the check, however still charged us full price for my fiancé’s dinner.
Our Valentine’s Day dinner was completely ruined. The worst part is we’re out ~$100 for what was a truly awful dining experience, and only one of us got to even eat!
I would caution you to stay far away from this place, especially if you’re trying to celebrate a special occasion.
Great for Valentine's Day date with my wife. It was a bit pricey but still worth it for a special occasion. Fantastic view, good atmosphere but would have been better if they didn't have a television on in the dining area. I get having one on at the bar area but murder scenes on a tv show while you're having a romantic dinner....not the best mix. Other than that, it was great.
cannot say all the good about my night out. We really enjoyed everything. The negatives were , 1. a bit high priced ( but I figured on that) 2. for our taste it was alittle dark for reading the menu.
The food was great as was everyone who helped or served us. will not wait 25 years to go back again.
This restaurant has unique and very tasty dishes that are artistically presented. It has a quiet but relaxed atmosphere. It sits on a hill with a panoramic view of the San Fernando Valley. The food, both lunch and dinner, is always delicious and meticulously prepared. I particularly like the lunch buffet. Our dinner was an event to remember for Valentine's day. The food and the service were both outstanding.
Beautiful view and good service. Wife enjoyed the Polynesian shrimp entrée. I ordered the swordfish entrée and was disappointed. Fish was overcooked and dry. Returned the dish and the chef made it over. The second piece was better but still a bit dry. The sauce with heirloom tomato and artichoke hearts was delicious. The house salad was very nice. Next time I will try a different entrée. Thank you for the wonderful surprise birthday dessert. We will be back again soon.
The view from the Odyssey is spectacular. We arrived purposely at 5:15 in the afternoon to see the valley below still in moderate sunlight,then watch the transition to twilight and finally complete darkness. A great show to behold. The food is OK, nothing bad but certainly nothing special. Our server was excellent in spite of having to wait on a fairly large number of tables. I recommend this restaurant specifically because of the site and the incredible view.
We were a party of five for a birthday celebration. Our table, by the window, captured the city lights below. Beautiful. The table of six chairs was very cramped. Our elbows bumping as we cut our meats. I ordered the organic chicken, it was very dry. The mixed vegetables under cooked, hard and inedible. Another of our guest ordered braised short ribs and said it was very tough. Two others ordered rack of lamb and they were very happy. Our server was very good. He had a pleasant demeanor and took our orders, brought our orders and filled requests in a very timely fashion. All in all, a good evening. Our birthday guest was pleased (he had the lamb, fortunately) so that was the most important fact. I've been going to the Odyssey since the late 1960's and will continue to do so. There is no question that the menu has changed (more limited) and the food ratings not as high. But the ambience and the staff, well that makes it worth coming back again and again.
Went to celebrate a special occasion. We sat next to 3 large parties, so service was slow. My order was also mixed up with the lady behind me.
If I could make a recommendation: it would be great if you separated the large group parties and smaller groups. It might help service and ambiance.
Service was amazing. Stephanie, the manager on duty, knows how to make regulars feel special. Rose, the bartender, and our service team of Colton and Jesus, were very attentive and provided the best service we could ask for. As always, the view and food were on point. This is by far my favorite restaurant. I look forward to going back again soon.
This dining experience was quite lovely. We had previously had a mediocre experience (poor service, incorrect orders) so we hadn't been back in the past year. We were celebrating a special event and the staff made it memorable. We took advantage of the prix fixe menu with wine pairing - a great choice! Each course was expertly prepared and served. They made up for our previous bad experience!
I'm trying to put my finger on it but something has changed. We had a reservation but waited 20 minutes to be seated. There was plenty of room but were seated next to a loud and busy table. Our steaks were of poor quality and not hot. Except for our server - who was terrific- a poor experience. Especially for the price
We hosted Sunday brunch for a special occasion and everyone really enjoyed it. Food selection is great and the food is high quality. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. He was always ready with the champagne and OJ and anything else we needed. The room we were in was very lively with other large parties so it felt like a party.
Went for DineLA. The view itself was fantastic. Enjoyed everyone of the three courses. The wine pairing to go with each selected meal was also excellent. We didn't feel rushed at any point to get to the next course. Overall it was a lovely dining experience.
We went to an early dinner and I wanted to try the DineLA menu. The Cowboy Steak on the DineLa menu was huge and excellently prepared. The Cheese platter appetizer was tasty, with three cheeses, dried fruit, and Marcona Almonds. My dessert choice was the Apple Tart with ice cream, possibly the smallest portion I have ever experienced - approx. 2 1/2 inches in diameter with a butter-scoop sized bit of ice cream- but it was not bad. Our other meal was on the Sunset dinner menu, where we chose the prime rib dinner. This was a generous portion and good quality. The Caesar salad was not up to par, even with extra dressing requested. Loved the cocktails. Our server, Chris was very attentive and pleasant. Overall, a good night out!
