If you haven't been here, you need to go. It was great place to go on a Friday night with a love one.

That's how we feel when greeted at the Attic in downtown San Mateo. Upstairs from a rather hip bar is the "Attic" dining room with Asian specialties. Their Filipino dishes are particularly delicious. Service is rapid and gracious. Thank you!

Will never come back again. Not worth it. Foods is too sweet. And it's not enough for an adult. Beef doesn't taste like beef. Chicken is like super. Is there a real chief over there

The staffs are very friendly. Good cocktails drinks but the food is a bit on the greasy and salty side. Perhaps that's what people crave for when they're drinking. Much younger crowd. Cute little spot.

If you are looking for a unique selection of dishes, you'll find it here. Their menu is a haven for all pallets. Their fresh spicey noodles were amazingly good. Just enough heat to know it's there but not so hot that I had to wipe my forehead. We each got two dishes to share because we couldn't decide on just... More

The food is served to share -- tapas/family style -- so order a few mains and starters for everyone at the table to share. This is a fun way to try everything! Attic is a gem in the busy restaurant row of South B street. Although this restaurant is categorized on FB and Yelp as Chinese..that it is not. It... More

As others have said, this place is more of an Asian fusion restaurant than just a Chinese restaurant. They are able to blend many of the different styles of cuisines offered in Asia into one menu. We had a large party and so we ordered many of their dishes to try: quinoa and kale salad, ahi tuna, sesame cucumber, adobo... More

Stopped in here for dinner with two friends - delicious food. Had the sweet potato fries, edamame, white tuna poke, crispy pork stir fry, garlic noodles, sizzling sizig and olive oil poached gambas al ajillo - everything was spot on - we ate everything that was served. Beer and wine selection was sparse. Highly recommended.

Attic is a gem in the busy restaurant row of South B street. Although this restaurant is categorized on FB and Yelp as Chinese..that it is not. It is more Asian fusion with a heavy emphasis on the Filipino roots it build upon. Chef Tim Luym mixes traditional Filipino food with other Asian influence and comes up with wonderful, mouthfuls...
