a really neat place!

This one is my favorite in Los Gatos... They serve small plates and great wines in a very casual setting. The menu is fun to explore, mixing all sorts of cuisines and ingredients and everything is really good... the prices are very reasonable for the quality you get....

We had the small plates. 8 different plates. All excellent. Octopus was great, mushroom empanadas was very tasty. Korean Taco spicy but great. Definitely a great place. Pricey but worth it. Service was excellent and helpful explaining the offerings. Great wine and beer selection. If you like fine dining you will like this place. We were sorry our trip ended... More

Our favorites were the risotto and the octopus. But there are lots of small plates to choose from, creative choices and interesting wine list. Loved the mango margaritas. Perfect place for drinks and small bites.

Do not be fooled by the description "small plates" the serving size is perfect for sharing. After a day of golf our group of 4 was starving. We started with 4 small plates shared which included chicken liver mousse, wrapped figs, goat crostini, and steamed pork buns. Then for second round we had octopus, shrimp and grits and of course...

The chef creates the most interesting and varied appetizers I've had....and the happy hour bar menu is as good as the dinner menu, meaning you will feel like you've had a meal after 3 appetizers...we had the pork buns, fish tacos and calamari and they were each unique and DELICIOUS.....and we are a picky couple of world travelers!

I've been here many times now and make it a must when I visit CA. Every meal I've had here has been outstanding. Do yourself a favor and go! Did I mention they do wine tastings?

We stumbled upon this cute wine bar in downtown Los Gatos. Lucky find that we will DEFINITELY go back to. Our waiter was awesome, and gave us happy hour rates for all of our drinks even though we caught the last 15 mins. of HH. He encouraged us to come back later for their late evening happy hour since we... More

We live in Atlanta and have a rather fabulous tapas restaurant in town. Cin Cin was fine, but it certainly didn't live up to our experience. The chaucuterie plate was VERY good.

This is our new local favorite-- fun with the kids and even more fun without. We love their cocktails and the bartenders have always seemed happy to tweak any cocktail to our specific tastes. My husband loves the steak and frites while I love getting a selection of small dishes to share. We've never had anything we didn't like and... More
