Quiet comfort with excellent fare

A great place for a romantic dinner or a business meeting where you can hear each other. The homemade breads in the bread basket were high quality. We enjoyed the ahi tuna and the lamb chops. Both amazing. Excellent choices of wines by the glass.

I have been in this restaurant a few times over the last two years and the food, although a bit pricey, is very good. The cocktails are very nice too, the one I tried i think is called Lavander Lemno Drop and it is really nice. The last time I went in March '15 the bill was quite high, nearly... More

The Flea Street cafe is average. The menu is average, the food is average, and the hostess stand misunderstands just how important the restaurant is. There was nothing creative about the menu, farm to table concept but mediocre creativity. The mushroom soup was meh, the beet salad was a standard beet salad, and the short ribs were average. On the... More

We had a variety of dishes but no one raved or even made positive comments about what they ate. The short ribs were at best okay and the fish was bland. A nice setting but the place was a bit noisy. Selection of specialty drinks was the highlight.

I've been coming here with friend for many years. The restaurant is always packed. They focus on local, seasonal ingredients. I've truly loved every meal I've had here. Smoked trout appetizer on criss cross cut potato chip is delicious. Anytime duck is on the menu, I get it, also love the seafood options, have a lovely wine list and really... More

Our friendly waiter guided us through the tasty menu making excellent suggestions for variety and sharing. We both enjoyed the featured corn soup (split without charge in the kitchen) and apple salad. The gnocchi were covered in a marvelous complex flavored sofrito with the garnish of crispy prosciutto. The short ribs were tender and flavorful, beautifully plated with table fresh... More

Flea Street Cafe has been enjoying glowing reviews for years as a top dining spot in Silicon Valley. We concur with these reviews; this is a wonderful place for fresh farm-to-table, well-prepared food. Two surprises were the fantastic cheeseboard with lovely accompaniments and the availability of some fairly economical, good-quality wines.
