We ate here a few times but our last one was a big team meeting that was held in the private room. The room itself was pretty roomy but a little on the dark side with wall to wall wooden bookcases/cabinets. There were 16 of...More

The place looks very dated. Needs refurbishment. The food is decent. Nothing amazing. The wine is quite good. Needs better furniture, some good lighting and much better decor.

This restaurant has been there forever, its not quite the business venue it was in its heyday, but still a good environment for business lunch or dinner. Food is good, service also.

This is the place that deals are done in Silicon Valley. Too bad the place was quiet last night. We had the fried calamari and chili Prawns. The mango salad, ahi tuna sashimi was good. Great service.

I met some friends for dinner on a Thursday night. Pleasant place, not noisy. I started with a smoked salmon salad. Plenty of greens, good salmon. Why hasn't anybody else thought of this? It was great, as was everything else. A bit pricey but worth...More
