Very very clean, parking was a dream. No waiting for anything. Was not familiar with no water brought in rule but an attendant let me know. Bathrooms are clean and there were two people in them cleaning at all times. Food was good, prices not too bad (I am used to high prices at Levi's Stadium). I even left my... More

The Area is beautiful, well designed, seats are very comfortable and somewhat easy to get to. Vendors were all over food and drink very accessable.

Despite living in the area for years, my first time here was attending a rock concert. My seating was comfortable at the price I paid for, as well as a great view of the stage//rink. The available concessions [food, beverages, &c] were good as well. Bathrooms and the facility in general was quite clean. Entrance security was a breeze and... More

We had so much fun going to the Super Bowl 50 opening night at SAP Center in downtown San Jose. This is the night where hundreds of media gather to ask the teams questions. The Super Bowl Teams for 2016 are the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos. The quarterback match-up is Denver Broncos Peyton Manning and Carolina Panthers Cam... More

The arena is spacious and pretty easy to navigate in. Quite a bit of food options and over priced beverages but that is to be expected at sporting events. The only issue I had was that I was not used to the white lighting in the stadium. As a Canadian hockey fan and season ticket holder in a Canadian city,... More

Agreed to take the chance for NHL game after customer event in San Jose. Pavillion is easy to get with car, though the traffic jams in Silicon Valley are terrible. Good Pavillion, good mood by the home team supporters.

The game was fantastic and there is constant fan interaction with contests and freebies. Food area caters to most pocketbooks but if you want good seats and good food it will cost you. The SAP staff was very friendly and helpful. Will definitely come back.

We have seen everything from Sharks games to wrestling here. All the seats are great. Concession stands are pretty good.

Took in a hockey game recently . Nice seats and good crowd . Found the atmosphere a little different than I expected . More like being in an AHL arena than an NHL venue . Not a knock , just my opinion . Probably go for another game next time in the area .
