I have made 2 attempts to dine at Magellan both were failures. The first time my husband and I went for our birthdays the service was so slow we ended up closing out the restaurant before we were able to have dessert. The second attempt was an anniversary dinner with our entire family we'd made reservations for us but the... More

The food is good, there is no doubt about that, but the service and attitude of the staff is TERRIBLE. Most that have been here would agree. They have very slow service and have no apologies for it, it just seems to be the norm for this place.

I have eaten at Magellan's twice in the past six months. It is a little pricey for Tracy, but the food is very good. The lamb is excellent, and my wife praised the steak. I can't exactly say it is more Italian or what, so let's just say it is Continental Fusion, I think. But really, who cares what it... More

Magellan's is a small, romantic restaurant downtown. The food is consistently very good to excellent. Prices are on the moderately high side. Food-4+. Everything we've had is really good and the food is consistent. Owner is frequently there, and he takes pride in his restaurant. Service-4+. Staff are attentive but know when to help and when to give customers space.... More

Passing through on business and checked out Tripadvisor for a recommendation. Spot on with this little gem. I had the lamb and I would return for more you can bet on it. Good food and wine.

We have enjoyed evening meals at this quaint restaurant a few times in the past few years and every time we repeat our confidence in the high class dinner offerings. Both the meat and fish entrees have been excellent. The service is first class with cloth on tables and napkins. Desserts are outstanding and the wine list is high class... More

Magellan's has been a go to place for a nice dinner for the past 15 years. Mr Magellan and staff pride themselves on quality meals along with a very nice wine list. Reservations are sugested, but not required. Never a bad experience. To get away from the franchise facilities, try Magellan's, you won't be sorry

We had four of us for dinner. We failed to make reservations, yet were seated almost immediately. The service was excellent, our waiter made suggestions on items we were unsure of. The food was done to perfection. I prefer not to have my food soaked in sauces and gravies and the place was quite accomadating putting all of the dressings,... More

Magellan's is a very nice surprise in the small but convenient cross-roads town of Tracy. Great ambiance and a fantastic menu are exceeded only by the owners personal attention to his guests. We started with Wedge and Parmesan salads, both were fresh and delightful. For the main courses we had rack of lamb, veal, and salmon pasta; all truly wonderful... More

We lived in the Bay Area and our friends live in the Sierra Nevada. Magellan's is a great place to meet for a long leisure lunch. The food is very good and so is the service.
