Description: Over the last year, Don Sanchez Restaurant has “re-defined” itself both in design as well our approach to your fine food and wine experience. Our food, service and quality are consistent with the same standards found in North America as we strive to constantly improve and innovate.Proudly, the majority of our high-quality produce is grown and harvested from local organic farms. Our seafood comes from local fisherman ensuring the best, freshest quality. Fresh oysters and clams are delivered 3 times a week and our fish daily. All of our produce and seafood are environmentally sustainable and checked regularly for consistency.One of our standards is to only serve “grass-fed” beef from Sonora or American choice beef, which is aged to perfection, and consistent with the same processing standards found in the U.S.A. All salt used in Don Sanchez Restaurant is natural un-iodized Sea salt from Guerrero Negro in the Northern Baja Peninsula.

“Oustanding meal at a reasonable price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014

For a small town, San Jose has an AMAZING number of good-quality and charming restaurants. We've been to about 10 so far, and this one has a wonderful, inventive, and sophisticated menu. The complimentary "amuse bouche" was a bacon-wrapped prune stuffed with gorgonzolo, with shavings of white chocolate. We had the mango tulip appetizer, which had a fabulous combination of flavors (including duck prosciutto) and textures. The shrimp dish was outstanding. The sax player was also great. Altogether a lovely evening--and the price seemed quite reasonable! I plan to return to this restaurant during our stay.

“Good food, lovely restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014 via mobile

We had dinner here our last night in San Jose and it was great. The size of the restaurant was a surprise - there is only a small street presence but there is a huge covered outdoor seating area at the rear. We had the camarones and the whole deep fried red snapper. The fish was served with soft tacos and accompanying sauces but it was perfect on its own!. The cocktails are interesting twists on well known recipes. The sangria was really nice. It was the most expensive meal we had in San Jose but also one of the most upscale.

“Sax, service and Spanish coffee show.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

The margaritas and salad first courses, we had, were outstanding. So was the fine red wine and the service offered by our friendly waiter. - The main course, a kind of beef Wellington in dough, was less so, but it was all made good by the pleasant jazz saxophone playing while we dined and the Spanish Coffee show our waiter Juan put on for us at the end. I have never enjoyed a better Spanish Coffee and seen it served as elegantly and professionally as here at Don Sanchez in San Jose.
