I had dinner and drinks here as part of a large (~25 people) business meeting. The food and service were impeccable. I was not one of the organizers, so I can't speak to cost, but everything was well-planned, they did a good job of getting people herded from the bar area into dinner, and the pace was just about perfect...

We really enjoyed a lovely Italian meal at 71 St Peter. They made the best bruchetta I have ever eaten, they brush the toast with pesto, cover that with fresh tomato and shaved parmesan and drizzle reduced balsamic vinegar over the top, YUM! Don't miss it. The pasta was perfect, al dente and flavorful. We have never eaten her before,... More

... I hadn't been here in years so I thought I'd try it again -- unfortunately it's even worse than last time I went -- food was almost inedible -- they really want to do a good job --- a+ for effort, but really D- for execution -- even the way we were met at the door was "off", the... More

Popped into this restaurant with some friends. We were looking for something new and hoped this might be a fun new find. It wasn't. The food was, unfortunately, distinctly sub-par. The menu looked interesting but the execution just wasn't good enough. The lobster bisque was acceptable, but lacked richness. The scallops were delicious. The salads fine but uninspiring. The main... More

I had the pleasure of eating at 71 Saint Peter twice while I was in San Jose. Both times the food and service were excellent. The duck was amazing!

Went downtown on spur of the moment and wandered around before choosing "71" based on its menu and eclectic appearance. We enjoyed the meals and service, being early, we nearly had the outdoor area to ourselves and watched the San Pedro Square evening take shape. Nice Spanish white wine was fairly priced and quite good. The foccacia served as the... More

San Pedro Square in downtown San Jose is a lively place drawing adults of all ages to the many restaurants and bars. We had our choice of several restaurants, choosing 71 Saint Peter for its romantic ambiance and its menu. The wait staff was attentive and helpful, the food delicious and we have been recommending it to family and friends... More

I have been here for lunch several times and love the lunch menu. The sandwiches are creative and yummy. The waiters are friendly and professional. I especially enjoy eating here in the summer when the outdoor area is open. Will definitely return.

Good place, nice ambiance. Good service, green salad and oven roasted mahi-mahi were great. Grilled Salmon was OK. Liked cream brulee too. Wine and ice tea, coffee etc were OK. Validate parking. Must give a try. I didn't understand one thing, we had our booking for 7.30pm; around 6pm my friend called and she wanted to join us, but they... More

Good food, nice place - good value and often possible to get a table on fairly short notice. The San Pedro Square area is great for visitors - so this is a great "locals" place that visitors will enjoy too.
