Our third visit in the past 2 years, this time for our anniversary. Established in the 1960's, this is the finest restaurant on the San Francisco peninsula, and our "special occasion" go-to place. They serve lunch and dinner, and have live music, in the lounge, on Fri. and Sat nights. With 6:30 P.M. Sunday reservations, we expected plenty of elbow... More

That is just the start. the food is prepared with the utmost love and care. It is obvious that the chef is first class and loves his restaurant and his customers.... More

When we want to go to a restaurant where we want to get nicely dressed without traveling to SF, this is where we end up. This place has been around for decades and it has remained consistent throughout. They have a decent sized bar and lounge too. The presentation and service are perfect.

You may not be very impressed by the first look inside as decoration is a bit outdated, but you will be by far more surprised by what you get in your plate! Delicious cuisine, vast choice of fish, shellfish and meat, wonderfully prepared and tasty. Congratulations to the chef. Excellent wine list also which can perfectly match your meal. So... More

We came from our nearby hotel by recommendation and were very pleasantly surprised. Fine dining well served and presented by some amusing and very professional staff. Great food choices and the deserts ,well --you go and try them--. Good and not overpriced wine selection. Very good experience ,would recommend and would return.

This restaurant has been in existence for many years and has always been our choice for a delightful dinner, locally. (We usually ask for table 33 and settle for table 3...they're both tucked in a corner, nice and quiet.) The flaming goodies are amazing, served tableside (possibly the place doesn't have sprinklers??) Service has always been perfect and even the... More
