“great food, goodvalue - a lucky find.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

With friends in San Jose for the day, we were looking at lunchtime for a place with a wide menu - we all have different tastes - and a good location. This looked the perfect choice, with its little outside tables and flower feature, and so it was. I had the grilled salmon risotto special, with lemon vegetable risotto, which was absolutely delicious, and my friends had, respectively, a steak and a salad. The total bill was extremely reasonable and the food was absolutely lovely. Service friendly and fairly speedy. A lucky find.

“Great for informal parties”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014

I love hosting group birthday parties here in the outdoor patio. There is plenty of space on weekends and everyone can order their own food and pay on their own. This also allows people to arrive late and not hold up everyone else's order.

Food is great, lots of fresh ingredients and great options. Yes they have great chicken, but they also have great pastas, seafood, and pizzas.

“Charm and Excellence though not fancy.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

While this place is not fancy, it has it's own charm and the food and service was excellent for fast food style service. The quantity of food for the price was amazing. I will gladly return at a future date and recommend this place to friends who want good food, good price, good service, and don't mind it not being fancy (it's clean, just not ritzy).

“Update on prior review”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

This restaurant has wallowed in success and now is mired in mediocrity. Food preparation and service have taken a backseat to expedient order taking. I have been a customer since its inception, and solo location at San Pedro Square, when the proprietor also owned Peggy Sue's.
A very bad experience with staff prompted this update.

“Great Stop fo appetizers and a drink”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

Great stop for appetizers and a drink. Had the calamari which was overall very good-must love garlic. Bartender/waiter was very personable and helpful. The meal menu had a lot of selection and was tempting to try had we not had existing obligations.
