The food was awesome. The service was splendid. The location right around the block from home is unbeatable. The prime rib was one of the best I have ever had.

This is one of our favorite spots, and I almost always get the prime rib. It has consistently been absolutely top quality -- better than anywhere, every time -- but tonight it was 'pasty' and weak. I asked the server what was up, and she said that now, only every other prime rib is the better kind 'with a bone'.... More

We love the Grill -- a Fun vibrant atmosphere with delicious food and great service. If you don't have a reservation, be prepared to wait and/or perch at the bar to eat. It is always a party at Los Altos Grill so is not the spot for a quiet romantic dinner. Great to meet friends for drinks. Music on the... More

Would rank among the best restaurants I have been to - especially for the bar-side ambience and quality of meat. Had the center-cut filet and it was an experience. Very expensive but the perfect place for the special occasions.

One of the best Grills/Steakhouses within close range to Mountain View/Palo Alto. The BBQ Beef Ribs are to die for. The atmosphere is Always lively and friendly. Reservation is essential unless you are just two people and are prepared to wait in the bar. Staff is very friendly and helpful. There are other great stuff on the menu which I'm... More

Always have to wait over an hour. I guess it is the place to be seen. Food is pretty heavy. Very loud, hard to carry a conversation. Parking is a nightmare.

My husband and visited this restaurant on a Friday night - we had 8:15 reservations but did not get seated until closer to 8:45 - hence the rating. The food was excellent - I had the grilled artichokes, prime rib and my husband had the chicken - all of the food came hot (cannot stand lukewarm food) and very, very... More

My companion and I went there for dinner Tuesday evening. Arriving at about 6:45pm for 7pm reservations. When we checked in, we were told "they were running behind about 20 minutes." Well that was quite true. At about 7:20pm one of the hostesses came out and comp'ed us an appetizer. By 7:30pm we were seated. I know the restaurant cannot... More

I met 4 high school friends while I was back in Northern California. This is a great place to meet friends and have a reasonably priced dinner. It's a little loud and can't really accommodate parties larger than 6. Total bill including tax and tip was $55 per person. Food is excellent. Try the tri tip and cheese enchilada.

Los Altos Grill use to be called Bendara's. Open for dinner only. Serve a wide variety of foods, from BBQ, to Mexican. Drinks are very expensive. Corn bread on a skillet is always a favorite. Seems to be a favorite hang out for singles.
