The finest restaurant in Tracy

Magellan's is by far the finest dining restaurant for Tracy. A quaint restaurant with a nice little bar. The food is always very good. I would give this restaurant a 4 1/2 if I could. We went on January 2 with a group of 8 people and everyone had an excellent dinner. I ordered my usual sea... read more

We treat ourselves on New Year's Eve to dinner with friends. We decided to go to Magellans for some surf and turf. Got that and split starters as the prices were pretty high considering this is Tracy, guaranteed for two people you will spend an easy $100. It was actually way too dark inside, could not ready the menu it... More

Great atmosphere. The owner is very attentive. I love their Carbonara. It is the best place to dine with good friends and family.

It was slow night, seventh game of the World Series, when I visited. I got great service. Ordered the scallops which were done to perfection and served with a great mix of vegetables. I will be back the next time I am in Tracy.

We thoroughly enjoy this quint little gem of a restaurant . The food is always fresh and well presented. Pricing is something you can live with, they want you to come back. The wine list is very adequate, and priced reasonably also.

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.
