Our Story

Le Chene French cuisine opened in September 1980 by chef owner Juan Alonso.

Through remodeling and expansions Le Chene has grown in size and customer base to become a true destination restaurant located only an hour from downtown Los Angeles and minutes from the heart of Santa Clarita.

Le Chene is located in a secluded oasis of Santa Clarita, surrounded by centennial oak trees, which is where Le Chene (The Oaks, in French) gets its name. Le Chene is truly a place to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.

The outside of Le Chene has the look of a small castle, made of river rock. Once you open the door the rock motif continues through the entrance then opens to a large bar overlooking the garden, an underground wine cellar full of mature wine and an open patio shaded by oak trees.

Fine Wines

Le Chene Restaurant has been awarded year after year with the Best of Award of Excellence by the Wine Spectator for our wine list. We are fortunate to possess an underground cellar which is ideal for the storage and aging of fine wines.

Over 32,000 bottles are resting and aging in the Le Chene Wine Cellar, just waiting to be enjoyed by our customers. Our wine list encompasses over 900 different French and California wines.

The Le Chene wine collection contains a wide variety of wines, primarily from France and California, including Bordeaux, Burgundies, Cabernet Sauvignons, Merlots, Zinfandels, California and Oregon Pinot Noirs, Chardonnay’s, and many more. If you’re a wine lover, you’re sure to find something in our collection that you’ll truly enjoy.

Amazing place tasty food excellent costumer service .
Absolutely the greatest venue! Incredible mouthwatering cuisine, the most extensive wine list in southern California, warm hospitality. A joy!
Le Chene is a wondeful restaurant with delicious food. I highly recommend it. The owner Juan is always on top of everything and you will often see him visiting each table to ensure all is well.
great food and service . great wine list
Food is amazing and scenery
Great French cuisine close to home.
We go to LeChene at least once a year with our family. The variety of food options is vast. They grow and raise their own food. This family owned restaurant has been a favorite of mine since the 90’s. I will keep eating here, as long as they’re here or I’m able.
Great food & great quality.
Fantastic food and ambiance! The service was great too and they really make you feel special when you are celebrating a special occasion!
Very nice place to dinner and relax 🥰
One of my favo(u)rite movies of all time is Duel, released on 13 November 1971. In July of 2021, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the movie, I did a “Duel road trip”, visiting several of the sites from the tunnel to the railroad 🛤 racks and from the “Snake-o-Rama” to “Chuck’s Cafe” now of course, LeChene.

Juan Alonso, the owner of this gem of a restaurant welcomed me with open arms, showing me old still photos from the restaurant scenes to the original locations from the counter to the pool table

My wife and I will be dining at LeChene in a couple of weeks. I’ll show her part of the road trip I took and hoping to stay at the small motel a stones throw from the restaurant.

Cannot wait to introduce Kris to Juan and, of course an amazing meal. 2112% recommendation to dine at this “bucket lister” restaurant.

Cheers 🥂

Beautiful restaurant, excellent food and wonderful service!
Our go-to special occasion dining...never disappoints !
Escargot...the menu,friendly atmosphere and relaxed accommodations...❤️
We received our food in a timely manner. The Filet Mignon Au Poivre was cooked very well as I requested and was very juicy and tasty. Mash potatoes and zucchini were seasoned perfectly. The salad was very fresh. My husband and my son loved their meals as well. I highly recommend Le Chene if you want a perfectly cooked steak as requested.
Always amazing! Never disappoints!
Delicious! Awesome service! love the red wine Juan's Red. Still one of my favorite restaurants.
Had a lovely evening here and the elk here was amazing. Wine was perfect! Bryan was my server and he was so kind to me. I will be back here again, hungry for more.
sincerely Bryant.
The most romantic restaurant in Santa Clarita. We have been dining here for many years. Decided to get married in their garden. Every single guest said it was the best food they had ever had. Keep in mind that most are “foodies” internationally.
Love Juan and his beautiful wife.
Juan and his staff were amazing! The waiters and bus boys were always there when we needed them. And the food was outstanding!
