Lots of great food — some of the better dining in Topanga, in fact — and great entertainment on the right nights. Good wine selection, and relaxing environment.

This is a nice little place in the canyon. We stopped on a Sunday evening and the place was full. The service was great and the food was delicious. My husband had the burger while I had a salad with salmon. Both were prepared well. We would definitely visit again.

Ambiance is lovely but loud - after all there is live jazz. The food is superb and a very lovely wine list. Best tuna tartar, crab cakes and mussels! The rack of lamb - delicious. Casual and comfortable.

The food at the bistro is very good to excellent most nights. Occasionaly they will have an off night in service and quality. They seem to struggle some when they are very busy. On an average night its a great place to go with the family or for a night with a date or friends.

Starting with the good part, the service was nice, the bistro about 1/2 full for dinner. First, they refused to pour a 1/2 glass of draft beer; I had to order the full pint. This has never happened in my experience, ever. So, no beer. The vegetarian lasagna was actually a veggie-ricotta quiche; little if any noodle. The béchamel and... More

If you visit topanga, Canyon Bistro is a must. It is located in the center of town, and it shows Topanga's unique style. In the same small area, Pine Tree Circle, you can visit a a cute shop, amazing library, wonderful art studio, tasty gourmet, and a nice cafe. The food at this restaurant is amazing! I definitely recommend the... More

We sat outside and enjoyed s wonderful meal along with some excellent people watching. My wife had the mussels while I had the steak fries. Real bistro food at a reasonable price. I really enjoyed the service which was better than most of the places in the area

Very good mussels and fresh fish. Mac and cheese (kids) not fantastic. Pleasant atmosphere and attentive staff.

Shocking! But it's true. The best burger in LA does not reside in trendy Studio City, Culver City or Hollywood. It's in Topanga! This cool little bistro with outside seating serves the most amazing burger. Grilled, grass fed, quality beef. A fabulous grilled bun. And tomatoes that actually have some taste! If you are of a certain age and a... More

We live in the Marina, and came up to Topanga to see an afternoon play. It was wonderful, sunny day, and we were in a lovely mood for some dinner afterwards, no great expectations. I had researched and the CBWB was on on the top of our list. So relaxing to cruise down the hill with the top down, pull... More
