Superb French cuisine. We had seafood and it was cooked to perfection. The recommended wine was very good too. The desserts were rich, as expected in a French restaurant.

We loved the architecture and art of this historic Victorian mansion, which is now a hotel and restaurant. We did not stay here, but the 4 of us in our group all really enjoyed our meals. I had the baked sea bass with fennel foam, shrimp risotto and saffron jus. SO delicious!

I love having late breakfast or brunches with some of my girl friends. We usually come here because it has a nice atmosphere if you sit in the patio, service is great and breakfast menu is just yummy, it's nice to just chill get some sun and have a nice morning talk away of the Noisy San Jose. My recommendation:... More

We had dinner three times there since we were hosted in the hotel, the food looks beautiful, tastes great and is created with love. The waiters are very nice and the style is very conservative. We liked everything we ate there.
