URGENT- Boss is coming from out of town!

OK - SO the boss is coming to visit from Chicago in less than two weeks. He would like to take his group out for a nice dinner. We have to make the arrangements. We work in Thousand Oaks. There are six gals in the department, and our boss, but I digress.

We'd like to go to a great restaurant where we can watch the sunset and give him a bit of an LA vibe. We thought of The Lobster and Shutters on the Beach. Our last outing was to Moonshadows for lunch. We don't want to drive much further south.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

  1. Do you have to watch the sunset? There are so many more options with truly excellent food (although I enjoy the Lobster, it is what it is) if you can veer from the sunset scenario.

    Pop over the hill from Thousand Oaks on Crescent Heights and go to one of the following:

    Comme Ca

    or even better, stay on your side of the hill, drive to Calabasas and have a meal outside while the sun sets behind the canyon at Saddle Peak Lodge. Probably my favorite restaurant in SoCal.


      And driving towards (or past) Moonshadows is heading north. South is towards Venice and then Marina Del Rey.

      1. why not cut your travel in half and go to saddlepeak lodge in calabasas?

        1. forget the sunset -go for the better food

          Comme CA
          Saddle Peak Lodge - haven't been, but I agree this might be a good idea if you want outdoorsy feel

          Lobster is OK - you will come out feeling dissapointed

          1. How about dinner at the Restaurant at the Getty? Amazing view and a good place to check out for an out-of-towner. Dinner only served on Fridays and Saturdays.
