We'd love it if you would mention that you found The Odyssey Restaurant and Event Center on the Here Comes The Guide website.
Why We Like This Place
Nestled in the Santa Susana Mountains, the Odyssey has been impressing its clientele with delicious food and outstanding service—accompanied by amazing panoramic views of the San Fernando Valley—for almost 50 years. They’re committed to providing a farm-to-table dining experience, and their creative seasonal menus feature hand-picked vegetables, fruits and herbs (grown on site!), as well as a variety of fresh, locally-sourced ingredients.
While the restaurant’s setting and cuisine have attracted a loyal following, its flexible event venues have also made it extremely popular for weddings. With two ceremony sites and five banquet rooms in varying sizes, it’s easy to find a combination that’s a good fit for your celebration.
The larger ceremony spot is the Garden Gazebo, where a white octagonal lattice gazebo is backed by a gently cascading rock waterfall and flanked by two ponds. As you exchange vows, your guests are seated in front of you on a brick-rimmed patio, bordered by bright-colored annuals and perennials. In the evening, the sky beyond the garden is glazed with gold, and the trees around the perimeter are aglow with twinkle lights. The smaller ceremony option is a multi-tiered deck below the restaurant that literally hangs off the hillside, treating guests to incredible views of the entire San Fernando Valley.
Now for the reception… If you have a really long guest list, choose the Apollo Room. The Odyssey’s largest and most versatile space, it comes with a huge, built-in parquet dance floor and a bar. The feature you’ll most appreciate, however, is the extraordinary vista through a wall of two-story-high windows. During the day, the grand sweep of the San Fernando Valley below captures your attention, but as the sun slips away the scene changes dramatically: Color fades to black, and all that remains of the cities in the distance is their lights, glittering against a velvety night sky.
If you don’t need as much space, reserve the Athena Room. Crystal chandeliers, dark wood moulding and wainscoting, and lightly textured walls in two tones of hunter green give it a warm, European feel. It has its own private entry, foyer, fully-equipped bar and built-in dance floor. The views here are also fabulous, thanks to a 70-foot-long wall of windows facing the valley and the surrounding hills.
The Garden, Atlantis, and Olympus Rooms are quite comfortable for more intimate celebrations. The Garden Room overlooks portions of the valley and the Garden Gazebo ceremony site, while the Atlantis Room comes equipped with its own bar and dance floor—and windows on two sides that reveal a vast swath of the L.A. basin.
For most of us marriage is one of the greater odysseys of life, and having your wedding here will get you started on the right path.
