We visited the shopping center while on a mini vacation in San Jose. There were plenty of stores to choose from and they were all very clean. Parking was sufficient and we felt like it was an enjoyable visit. Nice. If you forgot something on your vacation. Great spot if your local I need somewhere to shop!

This is another example of corporate shopping mall. The same exact stores and restaurants that sell the same exact things in the middle of the same exact enormous parking lot. I could easily name ten places that have the same exact combination of stores and restaurants that look exactly the same. What a waste of space.

We have been enjoying dining at several of these restaurants regularly. My favorite is Guy Fieri's Johhny Garlic late at night. We like their drinks, order some food, and often are tempted by their desert. The ribs at Famous Dave's is also quite good. For lunch, Panera Bread is popular. There are many others with Boiling Crab also being a... More

I usually go there to shop with my sister. If you go during the evening near the restaurants, it's actually quite relaxing. They play music for the visitors if you dine outside. I only wish they had more tables out in the center of the lot because that's where it's most nice.

This place has some neat restaurants that you don't see everywhere. The Boiling Crab and Johnny Rockets to name a couple. Regardless of what you'd rate them, there are some neat places to both eat and shop here.

This fairly new center has something for everyone with a number of major stores and several good restaurants. Home improvement, electronics, specialty clothing, and smaller stores make shopping convenient. We have enjoyed Applebee's, Famous Dave's, and Five Guys restaurants. Easy in and out and more than ample parking. A good place to find whatever you need.
