We love this restaurant. The food is delicious and presented so nicely. Service is great. Wait staff is very friendly, host desk, not so much. We always have a reservation, but I always feel like I am bothering them when I check in. Otherwise, great restaurant and we will go back. We have never had anything we didn't like it.... More

I went here with my hubby for dinner just to check it out. Wow! We were both amazed. The food tastes really good and they use fresh locally produced products. The food presentation as well as the ambiance is superb!

I have eaten here on numerous occasions and have always enjoyed the meal. As a vegetarian, it is sometimes difficult to find a good choice of menu options even (or sometimes even especially) at high end restaurants. The food is always excellent, as is the presentation and the service. The prices are high even for the quality but I'm willing... More

My sister and her husband love this place and wanted to take us there. What a great place - quality food and a good atmosphere. The beet salad was drama on the plate and quite delicious. We had the short ribs and the smoked trout. The short ribs were very tasty, though the trout was a bit fishy-tasting to me,... More

The atmosphere is noisy/hectic/crowded. The room had no particular charm.....not even "quaint" as some reviwers indicate. I had a small dinner salad and a pasta appetizer (no entree) and one glass of very average Chardonnay. My tab was $75, after tip. I still am convinced I was overcharged. However, no problem....I do not plan on returning. This restaurant is not... More

We have been going to Flea Street for about 30 years, typically once or twice a year. We were there again recently and I was struck by how this remains one of the best tables in the area. After an initial placement at an undesirable table that was quickly dealt with, we enjoyed a remarkable meal of baby beets, smoked... More

Whoever would have thought that west Menlo Park would be so lucky to have a restaurant this good -- a true stand out. I have been twice and both experiences -- totally different -- were worthy of a Michelin star. Service -- impeccable, attentive but not intrusive, menu is awe-inspiring and wine list is both broad and deep and fairly... More

If you want fresh, organic food, this one of the places to head to. We loved that you could share everything and not be stuffed. The personnel are friendly and helpful. It is a little pricey, but worth it.
