Great charm in the Silicon Valley

Had a very nice business lunch here with a couple of long term friends. Service was great and a very cozy atmosphere far from the city. We all had salads--mine was the ahi tuna special which was prepared with a very unique smoky flavor. Very nice. Would make a great place for a date or a night... read more

If you like dining al fresco and people watching this is the place for you. Cozy and romantic, a great place to take your honey. The food is delicious and uses fresh ingredients (arugula salad was awesome).

We were there for a late lunch. The covered patio was quiet, we could chat comfortably, we had a leisurely lunch of Salmon Ravioli, Chicken Marsala and a Caesar salads. Wine list was ok. Chardonnay was excellent. Service was prompt and we were not rushed. Very enjoyable ambiance. Inside this vintage home, the decor was quaint and inviting with a... More

What a delightful evening we had! Eight of us met there for dinner before attending a South Bay Musical Theater Performance at the Saratoga Civic Center Theater. Dinner was delicious (especially the homemade pasta!) and the staff was great. The atmosphere on the patio was perfect - twinkling lights, white linens & sparkling crystal, beautiful live background music. Even though... More

I had a delicious dinner here last night. We sat outside under heaters and it was lovely! My salmon was cooked perfectly and was very tasty, and the vegetables that came with it were perfectly seasoned. My friend's dish was also excellent (cod). We shared a salad that was tasty and attractive. The only negative comment is that we only... More

Chicken Cordon Bleu is to die for. Would drive considerable distances for dishes like these. Have enjoyed this place through two management styles and have never been disappointed.

I usually eat there for lunch because my friends like it. I find their salads, my usual selection, mediocre. The portions are small and I think the price is high for what you get. The service is friendly and the ambiance is nice.
