It is in a old colonial white building with a chandelier hanging out front! That is what caught my eye. How do you keep a chandelier on the streets of San Jose? (The owner said he had to take it down at night.) The street is very nice - a good area. The restaurant is French cuisine. The patio area has such a cozy romantic feel to it with a view of the street from the second floor. The food was very good and we enjoyed it a lot, but there were a couple of things that seemed pre-prepared. However, I would go back in a heart beat. The staff are fantastic, too.
