Steamers is a relaxed, spacious restaurant with a large bar area. The food is quite good. I always order the Steamer's Linguini. It is delicious. My wife enjoys their organic salmon. The wait staff is friendly and helpful.

We enjoyed our entire dinner. Crispy calamari for a starter, the house salad we split, fresh halibut for me and pistachio crusted salmon for my husband. Not cheap but normal for CA. Our server Tim was one of the best we have ever had. Knew his menu and wines. On top of everything. Highly recommend!

For years Steamer's has been the neighborhood favorite for family gatherings and celebrations. Consistent quality and excellent service has made it a mainstay for Los Gatos. Steamer's satisfies all ages, is kid friendly but still can be the spot for a romantic dinner date. Seafood is done right here. My Dungeness crab was very satisfying, and the fact that they... More

This is primarily a seafood restaurant with fresh fish and shellfish. There are a few non-seafood items as well for those who prefer beef or chicken. Very nice place for lunch or dinner with prompt, friendly service. Although I was there for lunch and did not have any wine, the wine list looks quite nice.

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.
