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.

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.

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
