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

Lovely unrushed Saturday luncheon. Wait staff were terrific, attentive and observant. Selections were inventive and prepared to perfection. There appears to be a very large variety of serving dishes. My only complaint was that the Steak Cobb Salad , although presented beautifully, was to the edges of a very flat oval mini platter, and salad material easily fell off the... More

I go to lunch at Steamer's every couple of months with 3 other friends. It is always good food that you can rely on. The service is always excellent, but that could be because they know us (although somehow I doubt that is the reason). Last week two of us had the steak cobb salad--with the steak cooked differently for... More

I remember the old Steamers always very good quality and still is...just across the street from their original location...nice out door patio dining, a bit loud inside especially if the bar is busy....Good seafood, enjoyed the fish taco's my favorite. Very helpful table service nice atmosphere, always reliable for a quality meal....
