“Good Fish and Wine List”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

The service was friendly and timely. The fish was fresh, well prepared and was on top of an interesting veggie garnish, different for each of the fish choices. The wine list is extensive but mostly French. We were happy to find a French Champagne we enjoy when in Paris.

“Another totally forgettable place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

Lovely restaurant, lovely setting, mediocre food. Nothing special about this place at all - the food is completely ho-hum. Had the grouper which was completely flavorless, and hubby had the pork chop, which was only slightly better than the grouper. The green chilis (side dish) were yummy. Manhattan cocktail was wonderful. The fried soft-shelled crab was indeed pretty tasty. All this for over $200. Really, unless you're doing business in Silicon Valley, this place is way over-priced for what you get. Trouble recommending it to anyone other than a biz type needing a place to talk biz close to SandHill Rd.

“Avoid this place”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

I recently had dinner at this restaurant. I had a salad as a started - so salty I could not finish it and as a main course, I was served tasteless beef. To say that the experience was a HUGE disappointment would be an understatement.

The service, however, was good and after sharing my thoughts with the restaurant manager, the logically did not want me to pay. Does not always happen, so worth noting.
