Fine French Cuisine
Amazing Wine Selection
Beautiful Banquet Facility
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.
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.
