Need a recommendation for restaurant somewhere between Tarzana and Sherman Oaks for Friday night
Nope, Woodland Hills is west of the area and in Fri traffic could take 45 mins, to get to.
There are a few Middle Eastern restaurants along Ventura, in SO and Tarzana, that would work. Shirazz- though I've only been to their Glendale location, great kebobs and vegetarian options.
silence9's suggestion of Stanley's isn't a bad one, but it can get a bit loud on a friday night with the bar and all.
agree with Hummus Bar and Grill. there's also Al-Cazar in Encino.
there's also Carnival in Sherman Oaks that's tends not to get too loud.
for Italian, Oliva on Van Nuys, or my less favorite option, but freeway adjacent, Cucina Bene.
also Boneyard Bistro has a risotto and some veggie side dishes and starters. maybe not quiet enough though.
one last suggestion for french - La Frite in Sherman Oaks or Woodland Hills.
4511 Sepulveda Blvd, Sherman Oaks, CA 91403
13539 Ventura Blvd, Sherman Oaks, CA 91423
15013 Ventura Blvd, Sherman Oaks, CA 91403
Hummus Bar and Grill
18743 Ventura Blvd., Tarzana, CA 91356
Gio Cucina would be good for you. It is small but not very noisy. They have many items that would be considered vegitarian and alays a bunch of soups that are vegetarian and non dairy.
It is on Ventura Blvd a few blocks west of the 405.
