For those that enjoy superior food and service, this is it. It is very very pricey ($1,500 with tips, wine pairing for their 8 coarse meal for the four of us, and cocktails before dinner), but our justification was - let's do Manresa and forego going out to nice dinners for a month or two. It was a wonderful 4... More

I thought I'd eaten enough haute cusine, but I was wrong. The experience, and it's an experience not a meal, was ridiculously expensive and worth every penny. I won't go again for a long time, but I will go again. Every flavour and texture was beyond what I could have expected or even imagined. The service impeccable. An amazing evening... More

MUST VISIT!!! If you are at all into fine dining or three Michelin star places this should be on your list in the bay area. It is more innovative than the French Laundry which is very classic dishes and traditional ingredients. Drinks are equally unique and delicious. Stop by Manresa bread next door for some pastries the next day.

This is a small quaint restaurant with excellent service. You will be treated to more then a dozen courses wine pairing if you so wish. The meal will take about 3 hours and you will enjoy very minute

Sampled things I might never try on a menu. Your here to experience new tastes that will expand your palate. Two highlights for me were the Kobe beef and bread, the latter available now at their bakery outlet. Prepare for an extended meal as this takes a whole evening. Wait staff are truly amazing.

Tucked away off the main street in Los Gatos, it is a quiet but great place to have dinner. The meal lasts a while so you should come in with an appetite and time to enjoy the creative ways the food is prepared and presented. We chose the wine pairing and it was fun trying the food with specific wine... More

We just revisited Manresa (our 4th time, but 1st since the fire in 2015) and were impressed all over again. The service is impeccable; very friendly, but professional. Our main waiter invited us to take a kitchen "tour" (where a staff person pointed out the different work areas, while we stood in one place, and we got to see Chef... More

This restaurant deserves at least one Michelin star! I have nothing to say except, "Go there as soon as you can!" It rates right up there with The French Laundry.

Thanks again Michelin for your 'guide'-ance! We were there for "The Early Summer Garden" experience. Everything about this evening was 3 Mich. Each of the seven savory courses followed that garden leitmotif. An early favorite was the Caviar Beignet with gold flecks no less. The freshly officially-minted Somm, Jim, provided a fantastic pairing. His cool demeanor and "humble" sharing made... More

As expected the choice of ingredients, preparation and service ensure three hours of enjoyment as the cascade of dishes are not only imaginative but carefully selected to work in harmony. Not surprising with a menu titled "Early Summer Garden", the dishes lean heavily on summer veg/fruit with a sprinkling of seafood: those waiting for something from the field that entices... More
