    Chairs woven from branches and game trophies hanging high on the wooden walls speak to the rustic nature of this multi-story restaurant. Elegant menu, spectacular outdoor patio for brunch

    Great for dining in a mountain setting . Only 5-10 minute picturesque drive
    If you like game, this is the spot.

    SPL is one of my favorite restaurants around Los Angeles. It's a destination restaurant if you live in the city because it's a bit of a drive to get there. The food is excellent, especially if you like game (that doesn't taste gamey). It's a rustic, elegant and tasteful place, but not stuffy. The three floors and patio areas of the lodge all have different moods to them. There's nothing comparable to SPL in L.A.

    Nestled in the Malibu Hills, Saddle Peak Lodge was originally a way stop and general store along a rugged mountain trail. In the 1920s it evolved into a summer resort that was discovered by such Hollywood stars as Errol Flynn and Clark Gable. Today, creeping housing developments have eroded the area's wilderness ambience but the Saddle Peak Lodge retains its historic interior charm whether you are dining inside the old lodge or on its enclosed outdoor patio. In addition to wild game dishes there is an outstanding Sunday brunch.

    In the back-end "boonies" of Calabasas, this log cabin restaurant has the most charming, rustic feel. A homey experience in a city known for luxury and elegance, Saddle Peak is perfect for romantic dinners and getaways. The walls are dotted with animal head mounts, fishing rods, and guns, but it's not a hunter's rough home-in-the-woods. The upstairs floor is a library-turned-dining-room with views of the surrounding mountains - my favorite seat in the house. Warm, crackling fires fill several fireplaces, and the menu is unique and expansive - offering plenty of game, meat, and seafood, as well as an enormous wine list.

    There are few places in LA that I’m reluctant to share with people, but Saddle Peak Lodge is one of them. While I’m not sure I should be worried—you’ve really got to be committed to make the drive back into Malibu Canyon and equally dedicated to brave the dark canyons home afterwards—I hedge my bets nonetheless. What looks like an old, storied hunting lodge is several levels of a rich, warm space that feels like someone’s vacation home in the mountains. It’s had its share of name chefs over the years and has been done right by current toque, Christopher Kufek. The menu, while heavy in the woodsy, gamey dishes you’d expect from the setting (if you’re opposed to taxidermy, stay very far away), also manages to flex its muscles in some interesting and unusual ways, allowing the chef creativity that yields magnificent results. My favorite SPL experience? A glass of champagne at the bar next to the roaring fire and then whatever the chef wants to send my way.
