A gem in Los Gatos

We finally managed to make it for a date night, and wow, it was just impeccable. Amazing ingenuity is expertly applied to the freshest ingredients. David Kinch and the staff really knock it out of the park.

I first dined at Manresa in 2010, and was blown away by the quality and the creativity behind the food. It was my first visit to a place with two Michelin stars, and also my first visit to a "fine-dining" establishment of any standing that I felt was actually worth the cost of admission, and worthy of a return visit....

One of the Best Restaurant in the Valley or State. Michelin Star chef with amazing reviews. Best to leave yourself at least 2 hours plus and plan on spending at least $200 and upwards depending on pairings or wine. It is a tasting menu and only for true passionate gastronomes. Nice for a celebration, birthday, anniversary or special occasion. 5... More

worth the Michelin star for quality! Incredibly tasty and creative cuisine. Like other Michelin star restaurants though, it's a long and formal experience. Not somewhere to go often, but for a rare special occasion it's memorable both for the food .... And the price!

After enjoying a fabulous meal in January, we returned with a party of six for a summer menu as the prix fixed menu changes monthly. I must say the service continues to excel. The wait staff was attentive but does not hover. When dishes are either placed on the table or removed, there are three staffers placing or removing these... More

Everything about Manresa is absolute top class. The food, the service, the drink, the setting, even the bathrooms (I'm sure many people almost get stuck in there reading the wonderful menus from top restaurants around the world). Yes David Kinch is a food genius and he has gathered a team of professionals that will pamper you. It doesn't matter if... More

We think this restaurant is more for catering to the local snob crowd. We were travelers and saw good reviews on here so we tried to get a reservation with them. We called all day the day before and the day of when we wanted to dine. All of our calls went to an answering machine, day and night. No... More

We collect Michelin starred restaurants. We love them, and have traveled throughout CA, NY, and Europe to visit them. It's our weakness. Our dinner at Manresa was WEAK. We were just so disappointed. Let me set the stage - you come into Manresa, and at your table is a little sheet of paper that lists what the ingredients will be... More
