Been here several times, food is very good and crazy large portions. Great friendly helpful staff. They don't take credit cards so trying to get cash can be tricky esp. since it tends to be a bit expensive.

The food and service are good enough to forget you're on the main highway,you don't go for the ambiance. Except that these people are so nice and pleasing and the food and friendliness exceed the need for a view. Share an entree and a salad or app and you will be full and happy. The wine was pretty good also,... More

We ate here 4 times during our visit. Really good food. Portions are a little too big. The best thing is the staff, very friendly and attentive.

We initially went for breakfast & I had a delicious breakfast burrito. They also have a full bar including champagne for mimosas which not very many restaurants in San Jose are open for breakfast, lunch, & dinner with full bar. We liked it so much we went back for dinner. The chef cooks his fish perfectly. More importantly you can... More

Oh. My. Goodness. I just had the BEST meal of my life here. Christian, our server, so beautifully detailed the specials that I absolutely could not decide! I ended up getting the tuna in a lime-caper sauce. It was unbelievable. Even the butter for the bread was remarkable! My husband got a platter of scallops, shrimp, halibut and calamari. Halibut...

Who knew the best place we would eat at in Cabo was walking distance from our hotel. We met a couple who told us this was a great breakfast place. We stopped in for breakfast and had an awesome meal. We decided to come back and try the clams later that night. When we came back that night we had... More

We just spent a week in San Jose. Had 2 dinners and 3 breakfasts at Sardina's. Food was very good and consistant. The service was great. They make a mean Bloody Mary. Add this to your places to eat while in San Jose!

My wife & I ate at this restaurant and we enjoyed it. Initially it looks as though the pricing is expensive however when you receive your meal you won't be disappointed. I ordered the jumbo shrimp special and was thinking I was going to receive 3 shrimp wrapped in bacon...I ended up getting 7 jumbo shrimp which was much more... More
