About Rustic Canyon

Rustic Canyon grew from a series of dinners that founder Josh Loeb held inside his family’s beautiful tree house of a home nestled in Rustic Canyon, an intimate neighborhood carved into the mountains of Santa Monica. Every month lovers of quality food and wine gathered around a long, candlelit table to share the joy of a meal created with thought and passion. New friends were made. Stories were told. Favorite new wines were discovered. Rustic Canyon is an extension of this, a neighborhood restaurant and wine bar, where friends near and far can come together and celebrate the best things in life: great food, great wine, and great people. Rustic Canyon is our group’s first restaurant.

All of the food at Rustic Canyon is made and plated with sharing in mind, so that you can order for the table and taste different dishes. Come with an open mind and empty stomach, knowing you are getting food of the highest quality and imagination.
