Went for Mother's day and had very nice food, with good ambience. Now, they undercooked my wife's filet and took longer than I would have liked to fix it. Also, our server was not his best. HOWEVER, silver lining was the management. They felt awful about the error and worked very hard to make it right. I would absolutely prefer a mistake free dining experience, but when mistakes are made it feels good to at least know that the staff wants to fix it and do better. A few items get comped off the bill and suddenly the taste in your mouth isn't quite so bitter.

This is one of my favorite lunch spots even though it's a bit of a drive. The service is good, the food is consistent, the drinks are tasty and fun. Love the outdoor patio on temperate days and lazy weekends.

California Cafe in Old Town Los Gatos is a large and pleasant semi formal restaurant which has been there now for a number of years. The menu is always updated. Seating inside has the feeling of being outside and looks down on trees and plantings. Outside under umbrellas is far enough from traffic to give the feeling of a garden with massive oak trees. Service has always been good and food very good yet prices are fair.

This restaurant has a bar and restaurant area. Great to go with friends and family. I would have given them 5 stars if their menu was a bit more imaginative. But, I should point out that what they do serve is well made and presented.

Even before you start your dining, you'll find yourself falling in love with this resaurant's setting and welcoming entrance. Once inside, waiters are friendly and accommodating and the food delicious and well-presented. I had a wonderful Asian salad my first visit and a scrumptious egg dish the following day. My grandchildren love to eat here. The children's menu offers a variety of choices.
