Food is very good. Nothing very trendy, but honest and freshly made. The problem is that getting a table, or even 2 seats together at the bar, is impossible after 5:30. No reservations for parties under 6. It's quite loud because of the general open floor plan and guests trying to talk over each other to be heard. Add a... More

My family and I are fortunate that Los Altos Grill isn't too far from where we live. We've always had a good meal there while relaxing in the curved booths. The wait times can be long but it helps to live nearby because we can put our name on the list, go home for awhile, and then return before our... More

Can be noisy, which is ok if you want to socialize around the bar. Food is quite good, especially if you like comfort food.

Experienced a remarkable dinner last night at the LA Grill. The staff was very friendly, service was amazing, and food fantastic. I enjoyed a light meal of the Kale & Chicken salad, and my dinner mate had the BBQ Salmon. We started with the grilled artichokes (specialty of the house) along with the deviled eggs. All were great choices. If... More

The Los Altos Grill is our favorite haunt to gather for a great meal, wonderful ambiance and first-rate staff. The smell of the wood fire rotisserie, the smooth and melodious rhythm of the jazz trio never disappoints in this warm and inviting place. Whatever the venue, the Hillstone Restaurant Group always delivers when you want sumptuous fare, professional staff, and... More

I've dined at the Los Altos Grill several times. As one reviewer mentioned, it's a "high energy" atmosphere. As you enter, the bar area is center stage, therefore, both energy and noise emanate from this space. Often a 3 piece band is playing in the bar area, which amps up the energy and noise. If you feed off energy, looking... More

You will need to reserve at the Los Altos Grill, because this is always buzzing there, the food quality is always excellent, as well as the wine list, and there is often live music going on. Simple perfect fresh cooking with a twist, all grilled; it always satisfy my palate. My favorites are: grilled artichoke, cole slaw (the only cole... More

A nice addition to downtown Los Altos , this place is very busy , food items not too expensive , many of the menu items are over salted [ fries] or overly sweet [ sauces ] so if you are sensitive to salt or sugary food order carefully.

Great for dinner, just a drink or two with a friend or friends or appetizers. Everything I've had on the menu is great! You can't go wrong with anything you order. Service is great and waiters and waitresses have always been friendly and efficient. Can be a noisy so if you're looking for a quite dinner this isn't the place.
