We have been to SAP several times and it is a lot of fun once you finish fighting the traffic and park your car. I would give the food a B- for flavor and variety. We have only attended sports events and I wonder what the noise level would be like at a concert.

We ordered late, so got fair seats behind the stage. They has a large screen TV face us to see the prime action. The performers would walk around back occasionally. The TV was lifted out of the way for some in the round stage performances with many people. We were on an upper level, there were plenty of bathrooms. The... More

We were here to watch Barbra Streisand in concert. Great, centrally located facility. We could have easily have walked to the venue from our hotel.

We were lucky enough to score tickets for the Barbra Streisand concert last night. The temperature inside was very nice, the seating was comfortable, and the facilities were clean and well maintained. The ushers and staff were all helpful and polite. Nice restaurants and decent hotels are within walking distance, so you don't have to hassle the parking nightmare.

Plenty of clean restrooms was great for a short intermission. Lot of food and drink concessioners made for fast service, regardless of the high prices, but then again what would you expect when it was geared toward a crowd that shelled out some hefty bucks to the see one of the best. I sat in section 115 row 5 and... More

Attended Barbra Streisend concert, temporary carpeting on floor was bunched up and possible hazard if not careful. Good view on floor setting. From street level, sunken floor area, accessable only by climbing down stairs, no handrails, hold on to seat backs. No ushers at top level to guide you to your seat until you reached bottom floor.
