Creative food, very formal

This is fixed price menu of around 14 items for $198. They are very accommodative of vegetarians & those with dietary needs. Each portion is small. The food is creative & the ingredients are explained. You need to plan 2-4 hours to enjoy this. They also have an alcoholic & non alcoholic drink... read more

We celebrated our 28th anniversary at Manresa. During 3-hour 14-course, we enjoyed all perfectly prepared dishes with very beautiful presentation. Nice service too! Thanks for such a memorable dinner, way to celebrate 28th anniversary.

One caveat: we have not set foot at Manresa for a long time AND dining at French Laundry has spoiled us for anything following it. I give four stars, if not for the ambition. Maybe Manresa has changed since the fire....We found the interior - then - to leave a lot to be desired, if one wants a complete experience,... More

Celebrated place, most people love it I think because of the reputation. Expect very tiny portions at astronomical prices (Is this NYC or London?!) also the chairs are miserable and tables so close you can smell your neighbor...at least pre fire. BUT! If you are a foodie...you will LOVE it!

Wonderful food, service, atmosphere. Downtown Los Gatos is also very enticing and unique small town. Michelin 2 stars. That says it all!

I hate this place! You are there for over 3 hours, you leave hungry, the staff is over the top snobish, you get one little piece of something on a big beautiful plate. The main course never comes. They make a big deal out of every little piece of lettuce. People that like this place are full of themselves and... More

What a lovely evening! My first trip to Manresa was a few weeks after they opened in 2002. My husband and I have been back about 4 times since then and each time we go I ask myself why it isn't top of mind when I think of restaurants more often! I just love all of the beautiful bites and... More

I went twice when they first opened - fabulous! A taste and sensory high - very pleasant, down to earth servers and lovely, understated atmosphere. The quail egg was spectacular and each little plate that was placed in front of me was precious, like a little gift. But not terrible fussy - just fun and exciting! My friend had a... More

We had the tasting menu for our anniversary dinner. I had been looking forward to eating at Manresa for months and we finally had the opportunity. The atmosphere is nice, comfortable, a little bit dim with the lighting. Food was fantastic from beginning to end. My wife is a little bit squeamish when it comes to unusual ingredients and she...

Manresa in Los Gatos is closed until further notice. There was a fire in July, 2014. This is a major loss to the dining experiences available in Los Gatos.
