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.

Manresa was damaged by fire and has not reopened yet. I am looking forward to their re-open. It was a great special occasion restaurant.

Sadly, the fire that broke out this week has severely damaged the restaurant. It will reopen after rebuilding. Some good news. Love Apple Farms, the exclusive produce grower for Manresa, on Tuesday morning announced it is offering a temporary CSA (community-supported agriculture) program to sell that produce to fans of the Los Gatos restaurant and its farm partner.

Chef/owner David Kinch likes to present the best of Californian cuisine at his elegant and modern Los Gatos restaurant, and does so with a light touch. There are plenty of vegetables, herbs and edible flowers on the menu as well as a good selection of seafood. On our visit, there was only one meat course. This is inventive food and,... More

My fiancé and I once went to Manresa almost ten years ago because I happened to read about it, and I happened to like what I read, and be intrigued by this chef named David Kinch enough to want to see what he was up to. Although I do not consider myself a foodie, eschewing as I do, way too... More

This restaurant is one of the few restaurants in the Bay Area that specializes in spectacular dishes and amazing wine choices. In my opinion, choose one of the available multicourse options and include the wine with each course. This will give you a complete sample of the expertise in the kitchen. I always enjoy the service and the food experience.

Manresa serves very modern cuisine, a fixed menu at $ 185 of 12 courses of small quantities each. The chef experiences how mixing ingredients will give unusual tastes. If you are looking for very good quality cuisine of normal size dishes, this restaurant is not for you. If you are looking for the untried that will stimulate all 5 different... More

We had the unique good fortune to book for one of the two day of “collaboration” between Manresa’s David Kinch and Azumendi’s (near Bilboa, Spain) Eneko Atxa. These two chefs own five Michelin stars between them; three for Atxa and two for Kinch. The dinner was a fixed menu of eight courses plus two desserts. Each course was a work... More
