My wife and I stopped in for some small plates and a drink and it was great. The food(corn fritters and goat cheese/fig flat bread) was fantastic!!!!

You will not be disappointed at this restaurant in Santana Row. I eat here every time I visit Santa Clara/San Jose for business. My business associates and I can eat outside under a comfortable space heater, the food is reasonably priced and excellent and I have never had a bad server. The servers are knowledgeable about the wine choices (don't... More

Their Sunset Dinner coupled with a flight of bubbly was an excellent value (specially in Santana Row). Had the sole and it was delish. The menu offers something for everyone. We were pleased with all our courses and the service.

One of the best eggs Benedict meals I have had. The eggs were perfect and so was the buttery hollandaise with a hint of lemon

I really wanted to love this place for lunch for the great location, attractive restaurant with outdoor seating, & fresh local fruits and vegetables. My cappuccino arrived semi warm. The Salmon Eggs Benedict with Basil Hollandaise sauce was room temp. and the egg a little runny for my liking. The flavor was fine but I barely tasted the basil. It... More

I often think that places like this might not be great because of the location but was really delighted by my meal. I would have given it a five but only four because the service was a bit disconnected. Several people showing up at the table asking the same questions over and over. It lacked coordination. I did have the... More

Came here on business the first day on the new job. The Head Honcho VP had wanted to go to Straits Restaurant, which Cherry Wonderdog followers will recall wasn’t one of my favorite outings. Fortunately for us, corporate pressures made him to forget to reserve ahead of time, thereby opening the door for Plan B. I discretely proposed Village California... More

Last night we had an "after business" dinner. So many restaurants to choose from in Santana Row. Although it was a Tuesday night, the area had a good amount of bustle -- maybe because the weather was warm and no one wanted to cook. Many restaurants to choose from chinese fusion, mexican, indian, etc. But we needed to eat some... More

I like this place. I feel the food is reasonably priced and in the 3 meals I've had there, it's all been good or great. Last night the service was a little slow which kept if from getting 5 stars. The twice cooked pork is awesome. Flourless chocolate cake a little dry.
