About
Our second restaurant, opened in 1979 in the heart of the Silicon Valley, has been as popular with local residents as it has with the business crowd. A comfortable and spacious cocktail bar adds to the energetic atmosphere of this casual dining restaurant. Be sure to arrive early for the counter seats at the oyster bar, as they fill up quickly.

The halibut and sole are awesome. Sashimi tuna best ever. Try the Anchor Steam beer. Management was awesome.

Hi, we were there at a time when there was Bad / Rainey weather but that didn't really stop people from going there. Their Food is always Good but it Lacked the Servers and Patrons to make it a nice night out.

We were 6 people and got 6 different fish dishes - all which were very good. As a starter we shared the “smoked fish sampler”, which is really recommemdable.

The fish is excellent. We had the butter fish, corbina and mahi-mahi. All were cooked to perfection-not over seasoned. The braised brussels sprouts were to die for, very fresh in a tasty light broth with bits of prosciutto. However, the grilled potatoes tasted overcooked and...More
