I’ve lived in Si valley for 10 years before I found this place. Wish I found it sooner.

It’s a Si valley classic. Rumor is many deals were closed here. Ironically, my review my be one of the last; this iconic place is set close on Dec 21 2017. Destined to be replaced by condos, it will be remembered by many as the place to host and be hosted.

I’ve been here several times this year and enjoyed every meal.

If you get a chance to visit before Dec 21, try the Alaskan halibut special—it was fantastic.

Service was very attentive. The wine list was full of local specialties.

Enjoy it while you can.

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.

The old building offers a unique atmosphere that is especially interesting in the bar area with the stained glass, tile, and overall ambiance.

The food - delicious. I had the venison stir-fry and was more than pleased. The meat was tender and delicious, and the dish was overall flavorful.

Enjoy!

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.
