Voted top 50 restaurants for a date in America. Castaway has curated a whole new dining experience where everyone feels like a star, and every seat is magic. From the meat dry-aging room, floor-to-ceiling wine cellar, charcuterie station, to the breath-taking views of the valley and Los Angeles Skyline.

Shantae is lovely and made my birthday celebration absolutely wonderful! Extremely attentive, her recommendations were superb, her aura exuberant, not to mention she takes a great photo and makes for even better photo ops with the unveiling of the drinks/dishes! Exceptional service and an unforgettable dining experience! Will definitely return and ask for Shantae! Full Review

First, shout out to William the manager! He made sure we were all taken off and was a good person to chat with about the food at the restaurant. Full Review

The remodel is spectacular! During the 16 years I lived in L.A. I went to the Castaways at least twice a month. I was always impressed by the view and the food. I've been back 4 times in the last 10 years as a visitor and always made it a point to dine at the Castaways. It's become my husband's favorite place. This time was a head turner. I cannot believe the transformation of this $10M remodel. It is spectacular. It's still comfortable yet a little more modern/upscale. The patio has been expanded and the new fire pits are fantastic. We were greeted warmly by the managers at the front desk and taken to our patio table.

I almost don't want to post this review for fear that they'll get too crowded when the secret's out about this gem. This is my new favorite brunch spot in the SFV. Awesome food. Great ambience. Excellent service. Beautiful views! I probably don't need to say more, but I've come twice and already have my next reservation booked. Full Review

The view was gorgeous with several outdoor fire pits , outdoor seating tables were so adorable and staff so friendly I was already happy before being seated.
