We have enjoyed other evenings here so decided to introduced our friends to this spot! They loved it as well! Each visit we mostly try their specials. Food is excellent! It’s a cozy spot with music decor! If you love wine plenty to choose from. Give yourself enough time if you’re planning on eating before seeing a movie.

We just love this place. Food is always excellent. Owners are always there. They always check to make sure of any time constraints as many people stop here prior to catching a movie. Thoughtful food, servers, owners! Just a GREAT little place.

We've dined at Boar Dough many times now and I'm finally getting around to writing a well deserved review! What makes this place so special is how much the owners care about your experience. They want you to enjoy yourselves and it's apparent from the moment you walk in. The service is always incredibly attentive, as you have Marcus, Charles and Joanne all checking on you to make sure you've been taken care of so you're never left waiting for your food or drink to arrive. Speaking of the food, it is some of the best you'll find in the area. I know that sounds like hyperbole but it's true. Start with the bacon wrapped dates stuffed with Manchego...you won't be disappointed. For an entree, the short ribs and polenta is outstanding so we always order this dish along with something else, either one of their other evening specials or something off of the menu. And for not being a dedicated Italian restaurant, their pizzas are delicious! It all starts with the crust, and they've managed to come up with a recipe that makes theirs really stand out. Finally there are the desserts. We don't normally get to order a dessert as we're normally too full, but the past two times we did and were rewarded handsomely for doing so. On our previous time dining there we got the berry cheesecake, which was a special dessert not normally on the menu and it was outstanding! Even my wife who normally doesn't eat cheesecake thought it was the best she has had. And this past week we got the Blueberry Bliss flambé with goat cheese, tyme, and honey on top of their pizza crust which was mind blowing. We'd never had anything like this before. So if you're looking for a great place to grab some dinner in Agoura Hills, I can't recommend this place highly enough (apparently their Sunday brunch is to die for but we haven't yet made it there for that).

Wow! Great menu, much to explore. Our first visit, there will be more. The spicy fried chicken and slaw were tasty, moist, and perfect in every way, matched well by the house red sangria. Steak frite was also very nice, but the potatoes were a bit heavy, just our preference for smaller fries. The flat breads on other tables looked delicious and smelled great, they are definitely on our list for the next visit. The wine list is intriguing, worth visiting over, and the happy energy in the space made us feel like part of the family.

Call me a fool for giving this place three tries to get their service up to snuff. Cute space, decent wine, and better then average food. Service remains consistently poor and unchanged. Tonight was my last visit to this place. We ordered four dishes for the table. Two were identical salmon dishes and only one was delivered. The second one was delivered only after everyone else was done eating. The apology was minimal and the token offer to buy my after dinner coffee was a day late and a dollar short. They also cleared the table while we were having after dinner conversation. I worked as a waiter in a formal restaurant in London, plates are not cleared while others are eating or talking. Finally we were asked to move to another table so that a larger group could be accommodated. I will never eat here again. They can invite me back fo free and I won’t be going. My time is to precious to waste being treated poorly. I hope this is an opportunity for them to learn and rectify problems so that others can have a nice evening out.

It was very nice for our first time there. We planned a movie so we couldn't stay as long as we would have liked. They were very friendly but rushed. Would help if they hired a couple more people.

I had family in town and we had a wonderful Christmas Eve dinner. Food comes out in kind of random order and my brother got all bent out of shape because his app salad had not come before his entree. but the tastes were so good. Classic Prime rib - Polenta was unique and delicious. Hangar steak really good. Kids enjoyed pizza and fried chicken. Marcus our waiter made it fun. A great night

We love us some Boar Dough! Simply put, BD is the BEST RESTAURANT (and by a fair margin!) in our entire western Conejo Valley area. Charles and Joanne (owners, and chef and hostess, respectively) are very friendly and able folks. They know what they are doing. Their menu is amazing (my god, the polenta!), along with their ample wine and beer list. Billboard sized pics of '60s rock and rollers line the walls and windows, and they play a lot of Beatles and other classic rock (several flatbreads have Beatle style names...). We've also been in when they are playing chill electronica, too. We love it there. A week later we stopped in and celebrated my 60th birthday with them. Fun time had bey my entire family. If you get the chance, go.

While the service was friendly the food left little to be desired. We had the seasonal butter nut squash pizza and crispy pork belly tacos. The crust on the pizza was very good but there was very little squash on the pizza and the pieces that were there were to firm for my taste. I should have thought twice before ordering the pork belly tacos as I should have remembered pork belly is another term for "fatty bacon". Not very appetizing as you are biting into a large piece of fat. We also had a half carafe of medium priced red wine and got out of the restaurant for about $75 after tip. Not exactly a high value for the two items of food and overpriced wine that we had.

One of our favs. There is always a special wine they have a few of so be sure to ask if you don't see anything on the extensive wine list you know or want. They take pride in their food and atmosphere as a small, quaint place with a small staff so come to relax and enjoy. That being said :) if you have to make a show or movie just tell them and they will be sure to get you out on time!

Cute, tiny neighborhood spot. I think it's a husband/wife team who are the owners.
She was great as the server. He, known for his 'sense of humor' (as she put it), managed to reveal
the ending of the movie A Star is Born when he knew we were about to walk across the driveway to see it.
Still bummed. Best dish we had: the bacon-wrapped dates.
