Try the ultimate margarita!

Food was good and plenty of it. Service was excellent. But the best of all was the ultimate margarita. You could taste the quality of the cocktail.

I get something different every time because they take the time to explain what I am getting. The guacamole is the best. Love it!

Family of 15 went for dinner, this is the second time in a year we've been to this restaurant, both times in large groups. Walking in at 9:30pm (after shopping) and we're seated ... but then told the kitchen closes shortly and we have to hurry up and order (happened both times - annoying!). The staff are friendly, but as... More

I would say we are regulars at San Jose but the last few times the service and the food quality have been poor. We have to ask for refills and for napkins and for this and that. The food has been arriving cold and even old tasting. Not sure what is going on but will only give San Jose one... More

Both attempts were thoughtful but I couldn't finish... More

I was very disappointed in the service and food at the end of our meal. I feel it was due to the employees desires to close up too early and neglected to considered those being waited on. 1.Beginning of meal ---- Service was very poor. 2. When meal was served, I did not receive a salad, What I received was... More
