Saddle Peak Lodge Ratings and Reviews
Saddle peak on line valentine day promot ...
Saddle peak on line valentine day promotion was misrepresented as a $65 prefix tasting menu or regular menu ordering. However, when arriving , we told that was actually for their other restaurant and had to pay a prefix menu for $145 without any other options. When raised to management this issue, we were told they would not honor what was presented on line and offered no meal alternative even when we shown them their own web page. Being on valentine day, we had no other options. This ruined our evening and felt taken.

Normally Saddle Peak is of the highest quality. Perhaps it was their anticipation of a crazy Valentines Day evening. The normally excellent food (particularly the main course Elk and Rib) tasted like it had been reheated. REALLY SUB PAR for Saddle Peak. At $145 set price per person for the evening the value was way off. Dinner for just three of us with corkage and a couple cocktails and tip was approximately $700. If the meal had been stunning we would not have felt disappointed. "C" minus at best. (The service was A++ as always...). Will definitely take a break before returning. A shame.

I really enjoy the food and decor at this restaurant! The place has several levels and a rustic lodge appeal. The elk is amazing; I recommend the Chef's game trio (and make it a Quattro). The second time I went the service was slow and my waiter was not particularly knowledgeable, but I am assuming it was just an off night. Recommend for a nice date night.

Booked a table here for a special occasion. It's valet parking ($6) despite being in the middle of nowhere. We were greeted warmly and sat in the corner. We were left menus but not a drinks menu. It took a long time for the waiter to come and take our drink order but we had to ask for the drink menu. I also asked for their supper menu as advertised prominently on their homepage. This looked to be a good value option. The waiter came back and said he didn't think they were doing the supper menu today. I challenged him and he simply shrugged and said sorry, just al a carte today. I checked the website and the homepage said it was served on the day we were there. However I did note that the menu section said it wasn't available so I am partially responsible for the mix up for sure, but their own website contradicts itself and we didn't appreciate the way we were spoken to and their lack of willingness to accommodate us. We decided to leave without ordering because we didn't like the attitude of staff. After twenty minutes we'd only received water and some awkward arguments over the menu. We drove elsewhere and had a lovely meal.

The food is always good, not great, at Saddle Peak Lodge. If you're looking for ambience and a special feel to the meal, this and Inn of the Seventh Ray are great options. If you're looking for top-caliber food, you can find better spots.

Celebrated my wife's birthday with friends and we really enjoyed ourselves. The food was fantastic! The Pork Belly appetizer is the best; although it's on the Tasting Menu, ask them to make it appetizer style. The pork chop is super moist and flavorful. The people are very friendly.

The Saddle Peak Lodge is a rustic setting with unique wild game offerings in addition to standard American cuisine. The setting is quiet and off the beaten path. The evening is memorable and the tables are spaced for private conversation. We started with the apple salad and we tried the elk tenderloin, chicken and trout. A great diversity and all were pleased. We ended with latte, cappuccino, and coffee and shared the brownie dessert. Fantastic food, great service, fun way to celebrate as a family.

Food here is outstanding with a menu filled with unusual entrees. My elk tenderloin was perfectly cooked and delicious. So was the rainbow trout. Restaurant produced a special annivesary dessert. The wait staff could not have been more accommodating, professional, and caring. Be prepared for a hunting lodge ambiance with trophies on the walls! Oh, and order the trio; I will next time.

I had heard about Saddle Peak Lodge for a while and had been really wanting to try it. I was not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The food was amazing. The only issue I had was the wait time between ordering and when the food actually arrived.
I will definitely be visiting again!

A very unique dining experience in the hills of Calabasas. Felt like going back in time, yet five star gourmet restaurants did not exist back then - so then some fusion of the past and present. Enjoy and give your self plenty of time.

This was our 4th dinner at the Saddle Peak Lodge, and it was excellent as always. Their menu is very interesting, and has something for everyone. The service is extraordinary, and while it isn't inexpensive, it is well worth the price of admission.

The food is always spectacular here. I've tried the tasting menu the supper menu and the LA restaurant week menu and all have been incredibly fabulous and large portions. The service is always wonderful, ( I drink a lot of water so I love that my glass is never even half empty… The attentiveness is much appreciated! ). I love that it's quiet enough to have a proper conversation without shouting like most other restaurants have become. The wine list is wonderful however the last few times we have come, a few wines on the list are not available. The server always provides a lovely recommendation replacement though.

we happened to get lucky and were there on dine LA week we were able to sample a little bit of everything the service was excellent and the food amazing to the last bite we all left satisfied and very full but even started us with a little tiny cup of tomato soup that had a little spice to it delicious they were also running a special promotion for their anniversary where we had no corkage fee

Amazing and beautiful place that would make the absolute perfect romantic night out. The cuisine is elegant, delicious, and just out right beautiful. It is well worth the money and the ride out there, through the amazing scenery of the green hills and meadows that surround this beautiful restaurant.

This used to be a place that had great ambiance and a unique value. Most recently, new ownership has decided to go " a la carte" so sides now cost you like other over-priced locations like Mastros and Ruth's Chris.
Oh well.... It was good while it lasted....

This is an upscale restaurant and deserves its praises. The food is fantastic and the service is very good. The ambiance is very rustic--it's in a large cabin, which is very charming. If I could afford it, I would eat there often. But it is very expensive.

The setting is beautiful and the food and service were excellent. It is not necessarily for everyday dining and best left for special occasions or visits. We had out of country guests and it was a wonderful place to share a little of our city in a beautiful setting.....

We have been going to Saddle Peak Lodge for many years on my birthday. The food and service up to now has always been top notch. While the food was as good as it ever has been this last time, the service was lacking. We ordered cocktails to start and they took a very long time to be served. My wife wouldn't even order a 2nd out of fear it would arrive after we had finished our meal. When we got our meal the waiter never came to check on us. Worse, though, was that we put on the reservation it was my birthday, the restaurant called to confirm our reservation and we reiterated that it was my birthday, however they forgot it was my birthday when we dined there! The desert came without the usual candle and "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate on the plate, our waiter made a lame excuse then went to the kitchen to bring a plate with a scoop of ice cream on it. Less than stellar service.

This place is a gem! You have to love meat or at least curious to try different types of meat. You won't find salt or pepper on the table because they cook to perfection. Saddle Peak Lodge has been here forever for a reason......Very cool setting and fantastic food!
