I had read about this place on happycow, and have eaten here on two occasions. Here's my Inn of the Seventh Ray review.
Our most recent visit was after a hike in the nearby Topanga Canyon State Park. Our party headed over to the restaurant for lunch. Parking is limited on weekends, so we paid for valet parking.
To our surprise, the a la carte menu was also limited due to it being a Sunday and there was a set brunch buffet - many choices including vegetarian & vegan options. It would have cost around $30 per person for the buffet spread, and more if to include some meats. We opted to order veggie omelettes and salads (1 papaya, 1 endives) a la carte.
The restaurant was busy at the time which made the service painfully slow. We sat and waited for a long while before the waitstaff brought our food.
In any case, we enjoyed our lunch and the serene outdoor greenery despite the slow service. If I could afford to eat here more often, I reckon I would.Pros: lovely nature atmosphere, great baked goods
Cons: service can be slow, not many vegan choices, expensive
