The outdoor space is beautiful and the seating is comfortable and nice. The inside is nice as well... obviously a historic building of some sort. The food left A LOT to be desired. Portions are small, flavors are bland (especially for vietnamese food), and choices aren't that great. Food presentation was nice. As others have stated, prices are definitely expensive... More

Nice atmosphere, great food, but service was pretty inconsistent. None of the high chairs were in good enough condition to be safe for a baby.

Well known to local foodies and an increasing number of young people who like to go in big groups,three seasons is a lovely and often pretty noisy place located in a beautiful old building that used to be palo alto court house. So if you are looking for a quiet tet a tet this is not a good choice. If... More

I have been to Palo Alto numerous times but had never stumbled upon this place since it is hidden. Was pleasantly surprised by the décor and the food. I ordered Lemon Grass chicken which was seasoned very well. Also ordered chicken salad and spring rolls. All 3 dishes were delicious. The tea came out in a lovely teapot. The staff... More

We're not sure if the problem was our server, the food prep, the management or some combination of all three; but we are sure we did not enjoy our dining experience. Here's the scene: a party of 4 adults out for an evening of dinner and socializing. We ordered one appetizer for the table and each ordered an entrée. One... More

Three Seasons is in a nice location in downtown Palo Alto, even though my fiancé and I stumbled upon the restaurant by accident. The atmosphere was warm and inviting, and I was impressed with the spring rolls that we ordered. The tea was also very good, and served in a beautiful teapot with lovely cups to match. What made our... More

Like the food, but it is very expensive. The outdoor tables are nice, and sometimes they have live music.

Three Seasons is a bit of a hidden gem, mostly due to it's location on a back street in Palo Alto. Really great atmosphere and charming decor, with outside seating (and heat lamps if the evening is chilly). The menu is extensive, all California versions of Vietnamese, both big and small plates. We had seared scallops with bok choy, a... More

I went there with some of my friends last Thursday. The food is just DELICIOUS. Nice service too. The dishes are quite large (which was somewhat unexpected). The seafood is especially well-done.

Nice ambiance & service. Ambiance is better than at Tamarine - the other Vietnamese fusion place in Palo Alto. The food this time was very good. There are many vegetarian & vegan items. This time we had vegetarian spring rolls with asparagus soup, vegetarian cripsy rolls, papaya salad, a curry, & Japanese eggplant. The food was really good - especially... More
