    Chicken. Wow.

    Food was great, waiter was very surly and non-attentive. Very expensive!

  • Bijan S.

    The grilled nectarine + polenta + ricotta + arugula is ridiculously awesome

    Fabulously sourced, impeccably prepared selection of dishes in a warm, convivial space. Spot-on service, with a well-curated wine list with both harder to find domestic and international selections

    Pricey yet wonderful farm to table restaurant, and don't hesitate to call last minute to rsvp because there's often a cancellation that you can fill ;-)

    Great food! Locally sourced menu changes daily. Good spot for a date or with a few people so you can try and share a bunch of small plates

    Great food but very noisy. What? Whaaat? WHAAAAT?

    One of the better burgers in L.A.! Don't let Father's Office deter you from trying this place. Come around early or late lunch to avoid the crowds!

    For a place that has "Wine Bar" in the title, I come here for the food. Oh the irony of it all but yes the food is fantastic.

    Fox's odd composition of beets, smashed berries and ripe avocado may be the first bowl of purple quinoa you will ever eat with pleasure. Read more

  • Sam D.

    Meh, only ok. Far too loud, terrible room acoustics, even with acoustic ceiling baffles, and very average food. No sign of the mythical burger. Cheese board was the best bit.

    Sam Duffy · July 2, 2014
  • Joycott

    Locally sourced, as sustainable as possible, and reasonably priced. What's not to love?

    Joycott · June 19, 2014
  • Sean S.

    Just found out they no longer have the burger on the menu!! Told new chef is trying out new things in a limited kitchen. Totally get that, but please put it back- was the best burger in LA.

    Good selection

    Ira ROSEN (aka Ike Rose) · February 27, 2014
  • Christina C.

    Lavender almonds, beets and berries, crispy potatoes with chicken gravy... Everything is delicious! Also appreciate that the flavors here are fresh and unique, not just a menu of current food trends.

    Christina Cha · February 22, 2014
  • Tiffani S.

    Do NOT get the gnocci. It is a very small portion for 17 dollars (2 or 3 spoon fulls). First time here, sorry to say my last time.

  • Jason L.

    Best food in town! The chicken was phenomenal. Chef Jeremy Fox is a miracle worker.

    Jason Liwag · January 6, 2014

    Off the menu burger is delicious! A main stayer from previous chef - you gotta be in the know

    Nic Barnes · December 24, 2013

    The Lavender Sugared Almonds are amazing!

    Kelly Bone · October 8, 2013
  • Chris M.

    The melon soup is out of this world.

    Chris McBride · August 21, 2013
  • Jamie F

    Ok yes the burger is sinful. But surprise superstars- the almonds. Basil or something kick is outrageous

    In addition to a new full bar program, chef Jeremy Fox's lighter California-style veggie-centered dishes shine, making the staple westside date spot once again obligatory. [Eater 38 Member]

    Disappointing. Don't believe the hype!

    Under new chef Jeremy Fox, Rustic Canyon has jolted the superb produce into something resembling a cuisine; try the asparagus with fried pheasant egg and ultra-dense bone-marrow gravy. Read more

    Order the "secret" burger - and get the egg! About $25 I think.

    The burger is not on the menu, just ask for it!

  • K P.

    really good burger- add the thick bacon! the shrimp scampi and broccoli rabe with burrata are delicious!

    Terrible service!!!! Totally ruined my sister's birthday celebration. I do NOT recommend!!!!

    Emily Ferreira · April 7, 2013

    Burger is out of this world. Don't eat all day though. It's rich. Pairs well with a big red wine.

    Sean Stoner · December 15, 2012
  • Mucho C.

    Wines overpriced. Food good. Quality craft beers. Nice ambiance. Think that pretty much covers it. Enjoy.

    Flawless gnocchi. Flawless.

    A sip of a French red wine and the best Burger in LA. Can't say no to that!

    We took starters selection. This is very, very good.

    Get the burger. Add the egg. Add the bacon. It's f*ckin insane good.

    Sadly the donuts are no more :( but get the squash blossoms...delish!

    Claire Nugent · April 30, 2012
  • James C.

    Best wine by the glass - get the Gargiulo Sangiovese. Great winemaker, goes with much of the menu and a fair price!

    James Citron · March 30, 2012
  • BordeauxWines

    This wine bar has an ever-evolving menu of the best of the best in food and wine. One thing remains consistent, their selection of Bordeaux, whether by the glass or bottle, is a must try.

  • RC ⚾.

    The Crispy White Polenta with wild mushtooms, sunny-side farm egg, parmigiano-reggiano... fantastic! Really, you can't go wrong with anything on this menu, including the ice cream & sorbet selection.

    The hip L.A. version of Chez Panisse, this is one of the best spots in Santa Monica offering small plates and seasonal ingredients.

    Don't forget bacon on that burger!

    The bun is a standard brioche, but the toppings have been chosen for maximum impact, and this is where the burger sings. Read more
