Success! Thanks for posting your review of California Canteen. You’ve done the world some good today.


\r LOVED IT!! I'm tired of reading how ""uppity"" the wait staff is, dear ones - that is called professional!! AND the food was delicious - we had escargot appetizer, yummy, buttery, garlicky and tender. I had beef bourginone, tender slow cooked, melt in your mouth comfort food. My partner had the chicken breast with mushrooms, again - tender, tasty, great portions with plenty to take home!! The Creme Brulee served\... view more

They don't need your business

Ate here once before, totally forgettable experience. But today I can't even comment on the food because out of principle I will never come here again. Who has ever heard of a restaurant refusing to make change for a dollar so a diner can put money in a parking meter so he can eat at aforementioned restaurant? Especially in LA where parking meters are ubiquitous, one would think restaurants would do what they can to ... view more

Mais Oui!

This is a great spot near the studios and just around the hill from the valley. Service is not rushed... and may feel slow for those who are used to quick meals. The ambience is great, so sit back and relax and enjoy the experience. The baked salmon with lemon sauce is fantastic and highly recommended. It's a bit hidden so watch for the sign, valet parking is the way to go as street parking is limited.

Aux provence

Believe it or not, this is actually a french restaurant highlighting food from southern france and the basque region of spain. I would probably say the food is 3.5 stars but i will round up since the atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming. looks can be deceiving as it looks to me like something of a dive bar from the outside. C'est faux mon frere!

A hidden gem in Universal City - Deeeelicious!

What a rare treat to find a such a neighborhood gem. I love this place. Extraordinary food and fabulous decor. Reminded me of being in Basque Country with all the Spanish and French influence. Comfortable and stylish without and pompous pretense, it made me feel like I was in a great neighborhood cafe -- in Europe. A delight to the senses and the palate. Has a great feeling for a professional lunch (eclectic, creativ... view more

Not unless you like it hairy...

The sangria here is great. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The ambiance is really cool. Very relaxed, but nice. The food was passable, but 2 of our dishes came with hair in it. Not acceptable for a highly rated restaurant. They were very nice and gave our table an extra dessert, but I would have rather enjoyed my ordered food minus the hair.

Good food, BAD service.

I have been twice now, one on a weekend night and once on a weekday afternoon. The food is good, and recommendable, but not really anything special with so much else to choose from. I would go back again except that the service, both times, was TERRIBLE. I am a waitress so I know how hard it is--and how hard it ISN'T--to be a good server.\r \r Our waiter today didn't show up to give us menus (ever). We went and... view more

Paris in LA

I have been hooked since the first time I visited ten years ago and have returned many, many times! A side from the food they have the best service in L.A and Fredo is the best waiter. He's always available for suggestions if you're a new comer and makes you feel right at home. The New Year's menu is always my favorite. In October try their pumkin creme will lick the spoon, the plate and be tempted to ... view more

Best-kept secret in L.A.

A true French restaurant amid the strip-malls of Universal City, the Canteen is an oasis of French cuisine and culture. The servers are friendly and helpful, and the cuisine can't be beat -- especially at the Canteen's reasonable prices. Try the soups, the spinach balls, the quiches, and be sure to sample a glass off their long wine list! The desserts are great too. A perfect restaurant for a romantic meal with t... view more
