You expect both of these in such a place and this is a popular spot for lunch and dinner in the heart of town specializing in fish dishes but also offering a burger and steak option for red meat eaters. We sat inside on a rare cloudy day and the place was about three quarters full so they were busy... More

I've been eating at Steamers since it was the tiny restaurant on Santa Cruz Avenue. It has continued to serve fresh well prepared seafood for decades.

This restaurant was very good bordering on great. The fish was very fresh and seasoned well. This is a solid restaurant with great food and excellent service, but it is not truly exceptional. However, I would definitely go back.

The tuna tartare which used to be a signature dish was old and smelly. Not appealing at all. Wines are still great if a bit expensive.

Halibut is very good. Steamed clams, too. Actually, everything ordered was delish. Loved the calamari.

Bring your date, your mother, friends or business associates and you will be fine. Large table, plenty of privacy, great service, price a little high ( but you are in Los gatos , if you need to check the prices you should not be in town . LOL ) . Lunch for 2 , no drinks 45.- + 8.- tip
