Best Restaurants on Ventura from Woodland Hills to Studio City

Hey Chowhounds. I just moved to Encino and am looking for the best Ventura Blvd has to offer. Any rec's would be greatly appreciated.

  1. I would add Sol y Luna across from the Corbin Bowl in Tarzana. Very good albeit americanized Mexican food.

    Sol Y Luna
    19601 Ventura Blvd, Tarzana, CA

    1. to add...
      Iroha Sushi
      Outtake Bistro
      Belwood Bakery for sammies and bread and whatnot
      Brussel mentions Oliva which is technically not on Ventura, nor is Simon Cafe on Sepulveda one block below Ventura, but they're both good
      California Pita for moist chicken and great fro yo
      Great Greek
      Lala's Argentinian Grill
      for healthy salad options California Chicken Cafe

      1. I just posted this on another query. Itzik Hagadol in Encino, across the street from the Town and Country Shopping Center was really fun and had excellent food. It is an Israeli salad and kabob place, with a very lively/fun atmosphere, and a lot of food. Good family-style place.

        If you want quiet and calm, don't eat there. Otherwise, the four of us really had a good time..

        1. For great fish wraps and tacos: Hook'd on Fish in the Encino Town Center (just east of Louise, south side of Ventura).

          1. I've read good things about Larsen's Steak House at the Northwest corner of Ventura Blvd. and Woodley Avenue., upstairs.

                      Love the idea of the Laurel Tavern but quite honestly the food is awful...
                      Cool bar... not much else

                    2. Dude try Kaffe Rouge in Studio City. The food is awesome plus they have hookah!
