From my Yelp review:

Out-freaking-standing. My favorite dining 'experience' in SoCal so far.

Service was almost absurdly friendly. Every single employee at Ladyface was warm and welcoming and made me feel right at home. I'm a cold-hearted bastard, so any place that can make me feel warm and fuzzy is something special.

Great atmosphere, and the outdoor seating was very relaxing. Service was perhaps a little slower than expected, possibly because I was outside, but still well within tolerance.

The food was pretty good. Oddly, my favorite part was the slaw, which was slightly smoky & spicy. The pretzel was very good, though not as quite as good as the pretzel at Sierra Nevada (but what is?). The Duck Confit sandwich was good, but a little dry. If they find a way to introduce a little more moisture into that sandwich it could be great.

Now, to the important part - the beer.

I'm a sucker for anything on nitro and their Picture City Porter did not disappoint. Made with coffee, served with an inch thick, creamy head and fresh ground coffee on top. It was like a coffee milk shake. I could've had a dozen.

The IPA was a breath of fresh air after that overly sweet, coarsely bitter San Diego IPAs I'd been drinking all weekend. Drinkable, smooth and just dripping with floral & citrus (centennial hops?). The bitterness was just enough to balance out the malt and lingered on my lips just as long as I wanted it to. Like the porter, I could drink this all day, and there are VERY few IPAs made in the area you could say that about.

Finally, their Belgian Blonde was the first American-made Belgian beer I had in SoCal that I could drink more than a taster of. It seems like the typical San Diego belgians are overly sweet, overly phenolic messes, like a barleywine with a wild yeast infection (I visited Lost Abbey and Green Flash on this same trip, both with an extensive list of belgian-style beers). Ladyface's belgian blonde had a subtle belgian character, a balanced bitterness, and *just enough* body. If anything, it was on the light side. Very tasty and very quaffable.

Minus 0.00001 stars for serving their American-style beers in shaker pints. Oh well, you can't win them all.

I will be stopping at Ladyface every time I'm in SoCal, without a doubt.

A great spot in a great location of Agoura Hills. The French-inspired cuisine is excellent, and the beer is solid and with good variety. In particular, if you like Belgians and/or Sours, this place is the spot. Service is good, and a nice chill location. Be sure to check this brewery off your local list!

Ladyface Ale Companie is located in a strip mall right off the 101 in Agoura Hills. Once you enter the premise it's a nice vibe. There's a bar area but lots of tables and seating area.

The person serving me today was very nice, friendly and quick. They had mostly their house beers which were very good with one guest beer (Avery). I purchased a flight which included a cask dubbel.

No food today, but looking around me, it looked tasty.

Enjoyed my visit today. I'll be back when in the area again.

Beers weren't all that great and service was very, very slow even though they weren't very busy. The theme is unique but it didn't really feel like a brewery

One of the nicest breweries I have been too. Very impressed with the ambiance. A nice restaurant, a little pricey, but staff still very knowledgable of their beers which makes a good brewery to me. Glad I stopped in coming home from Santa Barbara to l.A. Great food, too!!
