Prepare for a long dinner - this type of food takes time. However, if you are a foodie, it is worth it. All their vegetables come from Love Apple Farms in the Santa Cruz mountains - all organically grown - giving amazing flavors to your taste buds.

We had been trying to schedule a table at Manresa, in Los Gatos, for many years. Most often, we could not, as our trips to San Francisco (at least monthly, but often weekly) were sandwiched between meetings elsewhere, and there was just no time to get down to Los Gatos from the City, even for but a night. Other times,... More

Amazing is all I can say. Made reservations for a surprise birthday for my girl friend. When she thought we were only going to have drinks and the found out we were going to have dinner, she was blown away as simply put this is her favorite restaurant and the Chef, David Kinch, not only is a mutual friend but...

We went there for our 40th anniversary with two of our best friends. Everything about the meal was memorable from the engaging wait staff to the lovely food. I have been here 3 times over the years and it keeps getting better. I have eaten at lots of Highly rated restaurants and this one is the best I have been... More

Went here expecting a wonderful meal with superb service. We were very disappointed. Service was impeccable although we found it difficult to understand some of the ingredients as they were verbally listed. At times we were not sure what we were eating.... Wine pairing was expensive and not impressive. At one point I actually felt nauseous. Most of it the... More

I took my husband here for his birthday at the end of October. We absolutely loved it. We've been to numerous 2 and 3 star restaurants both in the Bay Area (last year Benu and Atelier Crenn, the year before Saison and Coi, and Meadowood a few times the year before) and even just a month ago in Europe (Le...

Frustrated for not been able to get in to "French Laundry" for the past many years, so I opted to go to Manresa to celebrate my bday with my BFF. Easier to reserve as long as it's 30 days prior to the day of dining. Got on a waiting list at French Laundry so I'm praying... I was very excited... More

manresa is in the small town in los gatos around 1 hour south of san fran. with wine pairing you pay around 1000$ for 2 but you get what you pay for. every dish was extremely well done and some courses were mind blowing. the service was flawless and very friendly - wine pairing perfect.

Have been wanting to come here for 10 years but was never in the area so we made a deliberate trip just for this and it was worth it. This past year the chef was on PBS' Mind of a Chef, which sealed the deal for wanting to come. Fortunately, some of the dishes from those shows were on the... More

Its too pricey to eat here. But if you are curious of what a 3 M stars restaurant is like and willing to.part with USD500 a head for a tasting menu with wine pairings, then do come for its over the top presentation of dainty food bits in style. The atmosphere is really nice and comfy but on the night... More
