We have eaten at this restaurant countless times and the food and service has always been excellent. The atmosphere is great, not noisy. It also has a great bar and sometimes music on the weekends so if you are wanting to dance this is the place, along with the great food, great service and you never will be disappointed.

Went for a dinner with my friend to catch up, and was completely blown away with cuisine, atmosphere, and service! Expected buttoned down, somewhat pretentious place with standard Continental cuisine. Instead it was pleasant atmosphere, warm and knowledgeable wait staff, excellent wine list. And then food: superb! Excellent foie gras, tasty endive salad, and main attraction: steak Diane prepared tableside.... More

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.

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You may not be very impressed by the first look inside as decoration is a bit outdated, but you will be by far more surprised by what you get in your plate!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.
