I hosted a lunch for 15 people in a private dining room. Great experience. The dining room had flowers (part of the hotel/restaurant flower arrangement), a private balcony that holds 8-10 people and privacy! We had drinks on the balcony until lunch started--a prearranged set menu for the event. The staff was awesome; I highly recommend the restaurant for any... More

The Rosewood seems to think it can charge anything ! Twenty dollars for a bagel and smoked-salmon plate, on which the sliced heirloom tomatoes were ice-cold. Who keeps sliced tomatoes in the fridge? And then, they were 'down to one everything bagel', forcing a decision from me and my husband quite like that in an O. Henry story. Service great... More

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
