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.

Exceptional excellent food, hard to make a choice on what to order. Local fresh organic and free range produce. Wonderful to have a chef of Jesse Cool's caliber locally, and not have to trek into San Francisco for quality and creative menu. For many years we have always had the same consistent quality and good service each time we visit... More

We just dined here to celebrate our anniversary and make it to Flea Street about once every 3 months. It's nice for us to have a special occasion restaurant that isn't all the way in San Francisco (we live in San Jose). I've read some of the somewhat negative reviews and am a bit puzzled. My diagnosis of why some... More

Jesse Cool, the owner of this excellent restaurant, has become a celebrity chef with cookbooks, tours, classes, etc. She is one of the first women chefs to make it in a mostly male world (never mind the female TV chefs). From the beginning, she emphasized locally sourced food, organic when available, free range meats, and creative combinations. In the last... More

One of our favorite places hands down. We eat here a lot both on our own and with friends. We've always had excellent, generous service. (One time I commented on how good the soup sounded but wanted a salad, so made the choice for the latter. A few minutes later, the waiter brought out a espresso-cup-sized sample of the soup... More
