Best customer service we have ever had! Great Service Team!

Followed with raviolis with mushrooms, so flavorful and fresh! Entree was bacon wrapped pork loin with fig jam. Great... read more

This long time "before its time" "in the forefront of the slow food movement neighborhood gem utilizes local and in season ingredients that are organic. My favorite entree is the beef short ribs in a wine reduction as well as their cucumber flower and any seasonal soups. I recommend the lavender lemon drop and cucumber flower cocktails. Their famous biscuits... More

Unexpected delight. Went here for dinner after an event at Stanford University 10 minutes away on the recommendation of our adult kids. It advertises “local, organic, seasonal fare. It didn’t disappoint. We had a great meal. The chef, Jesse Cool focuses on a few well prepared dishes with lots of local organic ingredients she gets from her garden and local... More

Jesse Cool's Flea Street Cafe is perhaps the best dining experience I have had, period! The prices make this a place reserved for special occasions, but my wife and I, along with special guests, have eaten there perhaps six times or so and never had anything other than excellent food and service. You can plan on spending around $75.00 per... More

Flea Street Cafe is our go-to place for celebration dinners. The food is simply fantastic with full commitment to the farm-to-table philosophy. My wife prefers vegetarian dishes and Flea Street's Vegetarian Entree (always different) shows off the true creativity of the Flea Street Chefs. I lean more toward fish and am always surprised at just how good it can be.... More

My wife and I went last week after thinking about it for years. The dinner was well worth it but shame on us for not going much sooner. The food was fresh, creative pairings of ingredients and the service very good. The peach and tomato salad appetizer was excellent! I had the duck confit entrée while my wife had the... More

We had dinner here last week for our 30th anniversary, the food was outstanding and the service was excellent, perfectly timed. Portions are very generous, almost too large. My only complaint: it was very cold inside, this did take a bit away from the night.

I Love this restaurant. The food is creative, fresh, and delicious. High points of our last visit were the vegetarian tasting and halibut. We sat outside on the patio on a perfect night. I have two very minor complaints. 1) the biscuits are so delicious that I always overindulge before our dishes arrive and 2) the peach or nectarine cobbler... More

Great food and mochas. Outdoor seating nice to relax after a workout or errand running. On the weekend head to farmer market take the train home.

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.
