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

This is a meal about the quality of ingredients and the care put into preparing it. Watch the PBS program, "Mind of a Chef," the episode titled "25 Bites" and it'll all make sense. We came to Manresa for dinner last night for my parents in-law (we had given them this meal as a Christmas present) and in celebration of... More

Recently went here for the first time post-fire. They rebuilt with an understated, modern ambience that centers the attention of the diner on the food and service rather than the walls or furnishings. There's plenty to amaze on the plate and the way it comes out, wave after wave of flavorful bites served with choreographic precision and theatre stage flair.... More

A life without experiencing the cuisine of David Kinch would be a little less rich. Dining at Manresa is a treat bordering on extravagance that did not disappoint my second time there. This time, my spouse Joined me and whether it was the joy of sharing the Manresa experience with her or the bounty of the early summer harvest, the... More
