Tapas / Small Plates | Redwood City, Peninsula

Once again, we loved our cocktails and every dish we shared among the 4 of us. They had a new white shrimp ceviche-ish dish that was great, the calamari was some of the best we've ever had, the corn and the octopus tacos were great, as was the duck. All service was great, and we love that they open at 4, making an early dinner after an afternoon movie very simple. More

Asian | Burlingame, Peninsula

The owner was warm and friendly and the service was excellent and attentive. We ordered the 3 cup chicken and beans, explosive chicken appetizer(very spicy so good for those that don't mind the heat), lettuce wraps, sticky rice with soft crab and pork belly with okra. All the items were delicious and presented well. We also had the sake with kiwi and it was so refreshing. Our total bill came to $90 including tip for four of us. There was live music - piano. It was rather loud with the music but the music was nice. We will be back as there are many more dishes we would like to try. More

Contemporary American | Los Altos, Peninsula

This has become our splurge restaurant of choice because of the outstanding tasting menu and great wine pairing in a quiet peaceful environment. Our combination maitre d', sommelier, and waiter, was very knowledgeable about each course and the wines paired with each course. It was well worth the price for a leisurely, tasty and beautiful meal. More

Contemporary French | Mountain View, Peninsula

Overall, the experience was good and we enjoyed a nice meal with some very interesting new tastes. The pace of service was OK but maybe slightly too fast for such a setting and michelin starred place. The fact that it is in a victorian house is very nice but also a double edged sword: we were in a small room with three other tables and one of them was rather noisy so that hurt the ambiance slightly.

American | Los Altos, Peninsula

The total experience was exceptional and very memorable. For a party of three, we tried 4 appetizers and each one was outstanding. Then we each ordered an entree. Inthe start, our lady server was slow, but the managers picked up the slack. Our server was sweet and chatty and redeemed herself before the night was over. For appetizers we had the Duck fat fried potatoes...their take on Patatas Brava. Exceptional. We also had 5he Iberico Jamon de Bellota...outstanding as well. Then Paella Valencia...exceptional! Last appetizer was Anchovy Toast...so memorable and tasty! For entrees, we had Duck, Pork Shoulder and Seafood Bowl. Each one was exquisite. Pricey but what an experience! More

Went here to celebrates my wife's birthday. The service and attention was exceptional. One of our dishes was outstanding (fried chicken) and the other was very good (short ribs). The atmosphere, ambience and overall experience was top notch. Great little spot for elegant dining in Menlo Park. Will be back to try other dishes! More
