I called to book an event. The manager never returned the call. I called again and the manager never returned the call. I emailed the general manager, Avi, and he never responded. Instead, an assistant banquet manager responded and he had no idea what was going on. There are so many other good restaurants in Silicon Valley you can go... More

The restaurant is located into the Rosewood Hotel. The outside seating includes an beautiful view of the Santa Cruz mountains with an amazing sunset. The food portions were small. I ordered the lamb with a mixed preparation of loin and sausage. The restaurant offered an extensive wine selection. The service included multiple servers who constantly checked on you.

I was just here recently for lunch. I always felt the price was too high for what you get. But with the new chef, I had a great lunch served. It was worth it.

I had a business lunch here. It is an excellent restaurant. Location is nice. At terrace, I enjoyed beautiful landscape. Food was excellent as well. Gazpacho was cool and tasty with deep and rich tomato soup. I would like to make sure that wagyu is one of the best meats that I have ever eaten. I had a wonderful lunch... More

This infamous little bar with a shady past and maybe present, actually serves an amazing cheeseburger. A lot of people come here not for the food, but for the scenery which on Thursdays usually peaks at a crazy and frenetic high; the ATM in the lobby doing a furious business. The hunters are the new breed of techno dweebs. Their... More

The menu has changed,and the restaurant does not serve burgers anymore. The bar does,but not the restaurant. The lack of truffle fries is why I am downgrading my review. The staff was ok,but I had my mouth watering for a burger,and was denied. The view is very nice,good locale. I would go back to eat at the bar next time,to... More
