Not my favorite place

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.

It's a very popular place, and I've never heard a negative comment about the place from any of my guests. In fact, several of my guests suggested we... More

This is where I prefer to take people to lunch. Wait staff is friendly and professional, noise is minimal, clams, salads and fish are very good, and I appreciate the white table cloths.

The service was very good, friendly and quick. The food was also very good. I had cup a tortilla soup to start (should have had the bowl) it was one of the best soups I've had. For lunch I had the seafood risotto, was good and seafood tasted fresh. My wife had the sole which she enjoyed. One of my... More
