Adequate restaurant

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... read more

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.

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

This used to be my favorite seafood restaurant but in the last few months the food has really gone DOWNHILL. We have gone there about 4 times recently. The vegetables taste like they were previously frozen. The fish is over seasoned with pepper. They have changed up the dishes, taken off some favorites and replaced it with cheaper imitations. I...

Upscale restaurant with decent food but negative vibe Los Gatos attitude. Now, overall, Los Gatos is a wonderful place but there is a superficial element and they hang out here - especially in the bar. It's known as a pick-up place. For me, there are better places to go.

I have been to Steamers a few times during visits to Los Gatos, and it is basically an average place in a great location. Average decor, average food, average service, above average pricing.

Looked for a place in Los Gatos that served Sunday brunch and without a reservation. Note, do not try walking in without a reservation in Los Gatos for brunch. Steamer's would take us. No brunch but a nice light lunch with wine.

Downtown Los Gatos is charming, full of high caliper restaurant. Steamer is usually great. This time we visited on a weekday evening. What a difference. The wait staff was still wonderful, tentative, friendly and pleasant. But the food.. I started off with a glass of Nickels and Nickels chardonnay, fully expected the normal aromatic, well balance wine to start the... More

Steamer's is one of those restaurants that consistently, over decades, has GREAT food, environment and cocktails...you can sit at the bar alone and have pizza and a drink or bring your whole posse for a wonderful lunch or dinner. Bar is welcoming, bartenders are friendly and fast and you must order the seafood linguiini at least once!

Great Service, atmosphere, & food. Sourdough bread is too good! We have eaten here for years with family and friends. Everyone finds food they enjoy.
