“Food prepared well, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Convenient for travelers near airport and Holiday Inn Express. Veggies prepared perfectly, al dente. Coconut rice delicious. Grilled salmon and catch of day (snapper) was delicious and well prepared. We ate early due to early departure from airport so service was consistent and very good. After a week of camping, this hot meal was really good

“Odd place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

I like kitchy places. Food though was almost inedible, and not what I ordered. Service was poor too -- not that the people were bad but understaffed.

“Don't buy the breakfast buffet!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Sticky floors, rubber eggs, weak coffee that was awful, all for $9.99 at the breakfast buffet. All the while the staff was making noise vacuuming the floors, rattling trays and dirty dishes, etc. Should have gone to one of the nice restaurants we passed along the way and not eaten at the hotel we stayed at.

“Good Food, But High Prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

I stayed here one night before flying out of the San Jose Airport. Not wanting to drive anywhere for dinner (I was not familiar with the area) I chose to eat here as it is located on the property of the Clarion Hotel. I have no complaints about the service or food, but the prices are high so be prepared!
