The food was good. The blackened snapper was excellent although I would have put a little less spice on it. The seafood linguini was excellent! The bread was cold, but after asking the waiter to heat it, it was excellent. The olive and balsamic vinegar did not come with the bread; we had to ask for it after the bread... More

We ate outside on a nice summer evening and enjoyed very good service and a very good meal. The menu selection is large with some very nice seafood dishes and the wine list is good. We had salmon and halibut along with oysters for appetizers. We enjoyed it all. We found the outside seating to be private and quieter than... More

First time in California and the welcome was very tasty and delightful in Steamer's. I had an excellent grilled snapper with a delicious Chardonnay Testarossa. It is not bad in a place with my same last name: spanish Gatos means Gatti in Italy!

Been going there for three years. They have a large enough space that they always can seat us without a reservation (even on weekend nights). Might not be the best formal dining restaurant in town but they maintained constant food quality and service. I think they offer an excellent value for money in comparison to other options in town.

Always excellent fish, awesome clam chowder and good service set in a classic up scale dining room with an active friendly bar scene. Added delight is the bread basket.

A nice location but service and food was equivalent to a chain restaurant . There are nicer and better places to go to spend $50 per person, when only 2 of the 4 have drinks. The people serving were nice, but the food left a little to be desired - like it was a day old. And the bread could... More

Always pleased with this place. Good service, good food, nice atmosphere. Wines by the glass needs a makeover though

Since its beginning, Steamers has served some of the best seafood one can find and with the best presentation as well! A combination seen only in the finest eating establishments! Now, rumor has it a customer has complained about the parsley and Steamers management has succumbed and banished the parsley from its outstanding presentations. Lack of the green makes the... More

I have been fortunate to experience Steamers at its onset in the 1980s. It was a local Los Gatos restaurant with great character emulating the fish houses of New England. It has progressively moved into 3 different larger locations over the 30 years and has morphed into a standard nice quality restaurant run like an institutional company. Nothing wrong with... More
