Dinner near Woodland Hills

  • 8

Looking for a nice place near Woodland Hills to have dinner with friends on Saturday. Medium priced - not more than $25 for an entree and not too loud would be great. Any kind of food other than Asian or barbecue. Okay if we have to drive to other parts of the valley. I realize this is a broad question - I am just not familiar with the Valley.

  1. May I suggest Nicola's Kitchen on Ventura?

    1. Right next to Woodland Hills is the Hummus Bar & Grill in Tarzana...literally minutes away. Very nice (though not stuffy at all). Great service. Interesting and enjoyable food.

        I really like the food here, especially the salad selection and laffa --but it is not the least bit quiet. I'm actually eating there this evening...if they've done something to dampen the space, I'll repost. But last time I was there it was crowded and loud.

          Still pretty loud--but sitting outside was much quieter, a nice night, and despite being on the side of the parking lot, very pleasant, indeed.

      2. It traveling further east from Woodland Hills, you might try Chablis Food & Wine at 18588 Ventura Blvd., just a block or so east of the newish Whole Foods Market in Tarzana. Just west of Reseda Blvd.

        Place was known previously as Paul's Cafe, and has a side patio in addition to a very pleasant and warm dining room. Good food, and plausible prices.

        1. I haven't been there for years, but Brandwynne is a charming French restaurant. It's on Ventura.
          I think it's within your price points, and it's a good place for conversation. Good food, too.

              Brandywine is as good as it gets in the valley, but I think the entrees are more than $25. If I remember correctly, they're in the $30-$45 range.
