See the Seafood at Steamers

The food is very good, but expensive for what you get. I go here for special occasions only. Seafood is obviously the choice. Good ambiance if a little on the noisy side.

Steamers is the only restaurant in Los Gatos that specializes in fresh fish and ocean products. We come here for lunch often, dinner from time to time, even though the town now has many fine restaurants. The crowd is older, and there are still groups of four and six he eat together. I don't see many children, as when they... More

Not the cheapest place for dinner but the food was delicious - my short rib was cooked to perfection and friends had fish dishes (seafood linguine and snapper) which were very good as well. Nice range of desserts. Server was attentive and helpful in answering questions. The only downside was that it was very noisy and difficult to have a... More

Steamers has been around for quite some time, and I have really fond memories of great meals here when they were still across the street in Old Town. It had been quite some time since I'd been here and I was looking forward to a great Bday lunch with a good friend. My last visit was in 2008 during the... More

The service was good, the atmosphere was comfortable...but the food was only adequate, at best, and required a Rollaids to settle an unhappy tummy...or two successive occasions. There will not be a third.

I love Steamers and the atmosphere. Great for lunches and dinners. Two large parking lots within a short walk. The staff take their time to explain the entire meal and the ingredients and will substitute at no extra fees. This restaurant is across from Old Town and on University Avenue. I suggest have a late lunch on a Wednesday and... More

Extensive menu & good service. We were lucky enough to be placed in a quiet area of the restaurant that encompasses a very large space. .

The Steamer's is a wonderful place to especially enjoy fish and seafood in general. I had a amazing Snapper filet - served quickly and fried exactly right. The whole concept and service is all customer-oriented.

I was torn between three and four stars for this review. I went with four because they do a good job with fish. For the price range, I would personally opt for a different restaurant. I don't like the pick-up reputation and atmosphere of the bar. The restaurant feels a bit impersonal and institutional. You may have a different experience... More

They make the best oyster, clams and other fish dishes! The salads are so fresh and the staff and owners are awesome! Patrick and Diane
