A unique experience but not really worth a return visit or (at least on the night we went) up to the over the top hype. Service impeccable but the "March of the Waiters" (8 or 10 in a line) delivering courses from the kitchen got giggles from us both. A small taste of a special small cheese flavored cracker (1...

What David Kinch and his team, including Cynthia Sandberg, are creating here is one of the absolute best culinary experiences in the world, IMHO, and embodies the best the West has to offer - with every single bite and its unique myriad of flavors, tastes and textures, exploding in your palate. Over the years, they have found their way and... More

Don't let the magazines that list this place as the place to go in los gatos fool you. Locals do not dine here. the restaurant is extremely overpriced and only for those that want something that is so overly creative and unusual that you sometimes have to ask what it is. The serving sizes are appetizer size so prepare to... More

For the price I expect both the food and service to shine. This is probably a place worth going to once or twice for the food, but not for the service.

This is not for the timid or the cash strapped. We arrived about fifteen minutes before our seating and we were let in about three minutes after we arrived. Everyone on staff was very well dressed, professionally coifed and presented an air of confidence and elegance. The restaurant is smallish and intimate without being crowded. Each diner has their own... More

This restaurant is so precise in every detail. The food and presentation is fabulous and a truly unique experience. Very pricey, but worth it.

We got a gift card here and otherwise probably wouldn't have heard of it as we're not "fine diners." First, yes it is expensive. But the 16 course meal we had was an experience like none other. Everything from the service to the presentation and especially the food itself was wonderful and the meal brought out so many memories, which... More

What do you say about a restaurant that has national and international acclaim and yet I don't want to ever go back? My husband adored it...but I have difficulty with a restaurant meal that cost enough to feed a village of starving children and yet left me feeling puzzled and not satisfied. Upon leaving, we were asked how we enjoyed... More

Excellent food, attentive selection of ingredients,great presentation and awesome tableware. Lots of good details around and very attentive service. Perfect and various choice of alcohol and wines. Good recommendation, just a little bit overpriced to keep in mind going there. Buon Appetito..

Very expensive. The restaurant is probably the best place in Los Gatos if you are looking for an interesting gourmet style food and ready to pay $300+ per person. The menu is pre fixed. Starters are ok but too many cold dishes give impression to have somethings earlier prepared and put on the table from the fridge. The chef must... More
