The food was very good. We felt we were a bit misled about how much to order (too much). When it's all about sharing, some plates are more filling than others and the best servers do a good job of explaining that and helping with decisions. But I would go back now that I can judge for myself.
I was At the restaurant a year ago and really enjoyed the food. Was disappointed this time wasn't impressed by the main coarse options.
Everything was excellent except the fact they forgot it was my partners birthday after calling then twice to remind them 2 days prior.
Gr at variety of dishes styles and flavors. Attentive service not intrusive. I ter sting cocktails and wines
the ricotta dumplings and the chicken were very good but the service was not as attentive for fine dining.
Had the pre-fix menu on New Years Eve. A perfect 8 course meal with wine pairing. Not a bad dish served and pairings were perfect. Favorite dishes were the Pâté, Poached Oysters, and Root Vegetable Au Gratin, and Bananas Foster.
Experience was top notch BUT we were there on NYE and I don't believe OpenTable communicated that it was a $125 Prix Fixe menu. The app DID require a credit card to hold the reservation so felt a bit lured in.
A wondrous tasting menu on New Years Eve is what drew us in. We were celebrating our 25 anniversary and wished to do so quietly, thoughtfully and with flavor luxury. Rustic Canyon's service held us very gently, with kindness and care. The options on the menu were many and wondrous. And--bowing with thanks to the kitchen--despite being a tasting menu, servings were generous: fun and easy to share without feeling sad you're not getting enough yourself! Plus the wine pairings: inspired and helped us to meet some new things we haven't tried before, which is always fun. LOVE. THIS. PLACE. [PS: Pozole, Pozole, Pozole.]
Excellent attention to detail in food, service and wine pairing. Highly recommended. A special, "night out" experience.
Delicious food, but our server was terrible. Luckily, the other fellow servers picked up his slack.
Wonderful food and service. Love the tapas-type menu.
Excellent menu. Service delay between mains was lengthly.
Second time at Rustic Canyon, and it was as wonderful as the first. The menu is diverse and surprising, the food is exceptional--creative without being overly challenging. My friend chose a polenta dish that had the two of us swooning, and I'm no polenta fan. The staff is lovely: friendly, exceedingly helpful and enthusiastic, but never intrusive. It's a warm, relaxed and delicious experience, from start to finish.
Food was generally good and unique , but noise level was out of control , it was hard to have a conversation with friends sitting across the table.
Ordered the porky chop, probably the best I've eaten. Endive salad was excellent as well
