Flea Street has been a Silicon Valley favorite since 1980. The atmosphere is contemporary, sophisticated and inviting. The menu is a celebration of the rich Northern California food community: seafood is caught in the nearby Pacific, produce is carefully sourced from local farms, meat is grass-fed or pasture-raised to name just a few. Flea Street offers innovative yet approachable cuisine that showcases the very best of the season. Our bar specializes in martinis and unique cocktails using small batch liquors. A wine list features the best of California’s extraordinary vineyards with an emphasis on the local appellation--the Santa Cruz Mountains.

    I hadn't been to Flea Street in a long time (since before the pandemic) but the food was as wonderful &amp; creative as ever. Service was a bit slow but they were busy so I understand. Alcohol (cocktails and wine) seemed overly expensive but everything else was worth the cost.

    Fun to come back to the revamped Flea St. Upscale ingredients and prep with down home, warm service. Cosmopolitan atmosphere indoors, weekend in the country outdoors. The current art show is fascinating! I loved the morel mushroom risotto and admit I ate all the chocolate soufflé myself. Who is this restaurant for? Regulars who have for decades appreciated the organic, locally grown food, and for new people used to SF and NYC restaurants that care about sourcing ingredients and seeing what young, talented chefs can create.

    Fresh food was excellent and well-presented. Black fish was perfected cooked. Vegetables in the broth were young and tender. Dinner #2 was the short ribs well cooked beef. Nice to have an appetizer treat with the incredible biscuits. Mini cream puffs with check were also excellent. Flea Street is perfect for special occasions when we eat out.

    Owner Jessie Cool and Chef/GM Bryan Thuerk have created a delicious menu representative of our local farms and seasonal California cuisine. The ingredients are thoughtfully paired, exceptionally prepared, and artfully presented. Beverage menu has something for everyone, and like the culinary menu, you can’t go wrong, pair with your food with ease and sure satisfaction. All of the staff are attentive, personable, and good old fashioned hard working humble restaurant service professionals. See you next week Flea Street team!

    LOVE it mostly...LOVE the whole idea but lacking is a host who monitors things 'overall'...checks in with tables, says hello and relays issues/requests as needed to the waiter/busser. This would make us diners feel more 'looked after' and in turn would help justify the hefty price tag. We've been here several times and always notice the lack of someone monitoring the dining room. As a result the service can feel a little 'slapdash'. OVERALL: a wonderful concept in this wonderful part of the world !

    Flea Street is always a fabulous dining experience. From the beautiful, tasty cocktails prepared by longtime bartender, Eloy, to the generous taste of the season/biscuits/bread plate, gorgeous entrees (we were a party of four and ended up sharing bc everyone was talking about how good their dish was!) to desserts. Chef Bryan Theurk and company provide consistent, delicious food and service.

    We were very excited to come &amp; dine. The food was so $$$$ and even though the fried chicken was $70 for 2, I ordered it for myself with take home. The chicken was nothing but hard crispy fried skin or whatever???? There was no chicken meat at all hardly. The martini was $24 OUCH! My husband’s Sole was just so so &amp; the 3 cheese tortellini was way too cheesy. I will say service was great, but that too we had to pay extra for because of some additional “living cost” add on. We came &amp; left to never return again, especially for the undesirable fried chicken. No thanks

    This place has gone downhill over the years. Super expensive tiny tiny amount of food that’s the size of small tiny appetizer. What’s worse is they automatically added 20% tip!!! (only 4 of us, normally it’s 18% for parties of 8 or more) plus additional health care fee. I believe customers should have a choice to give tips. Won’t be going there anytime soon!!!

    We had dinner outside in the "parklet" which can be a bit noisy from traffic, but not too bad. The service and dinner were both outstanding. Flea Street is somewhat pricey, but well worth it.

    It is always worth the effort to spend an evening at Flea St, but the current limitations on the dining experience are still a distraction, and an overall detractor. I know it's not the fault of the kitchen and service staff that we still have to be patient with Covid realities - maybe I was expecting more than they could rationally deliver.

We are especially heartened by and supportive of the tipping policy where the entire staff shares equally in the 20% gratuity that is added to all checks. Good for everybody.

    Flea Street has always been one of our all time Bay Area favorites. But our recent visit left us totally floored over how far things have slipped. So sad. For openers, their unique mask policy requiring diners to mask up whenever approached by a server is socially awkward. It breaks the rhythm of conversation when everyone at the table scrambles for their mask every time a server pops up unexpectedly. Seems a little overkill for outside dining. The servers were polite and well-intended but very inexperienced and untrained to support a fine dining experience. Only a minute after the opening cocktails arrived they started bringing the openers.....all of them, simultaneously. I ordered a salad to start, followed by the crab cake and then the entree but received the crab cake and salad together all before my cocktail was even half finished. Chain restaurant service was never part of the Flea Street experience. The food was mediocre and not consistent with the old Flea Street experience. The presentation of the crab cake was ruined when they brought it out the second time. Probably left it under the lamps or in the oven to maintain temperature but the final product suffered as a result. My fish entree was sadly over cooked, as well. I know these are trying times and I want to give them the benefit of the doubt but there was a lot that went wrong that evening. The old Flea Street is very much missed.

    The food and services were both phenomenal as always! There were several dinners which made it seem like the spot to be, while the noise stayed at a comfortable chatting level. I love sitting outside on the patio and I always feel safe eating here. Not to mention we were running late and they didn't cancel our reservations. Needless to say I have no complaints and I will be coming back soon.

    Scope: 7:15pm Friday Reservation. Showed 7:10pm. Three Groups ahead of us. Curbside waiting. 5 minutes go by and first appearance is from a (clearly stressed) lady whom proclaims in a high pitch voice "I am the manager of the restaurant and as our Bartenders Mother passed away from COVID yesterday, we are a little backed up..."* Couples in front seated at a corner table on the makeshift deck facing street with exposure to elements (wind) from three sides. They asked to be moved due to wind/noise, which is accomodated. While we continue to wait we are offered a sip of Chenin Blanc (good on any cold night!). The Hostess tells us "You do NOT want the corner table, and we will have another table for you shortly" Another 10 minutes go by (we are the only customers waiting now) and here comes the Manager again, starting her rant about the Bartenders mother (which she has almost perfected by now..) I make her aware that we already received the notice the first time 20 minutes ago, and she "double takes me" and walks away. The Manager comes back in a split second saying "You refused a table, that is why you are not seated yet!!!" I made it clear that we, in agreement w/hostess, were waiting for a table under cover. Rant Cont: "I have been in this business in 40 years. We are struggling these days.." and even proceeds to tell my wife "You can handle this guy, I'm done..." "Oh also proceeded to say "you are free to leave.." To THE QUEEN OF THE FLEA MARKET: I don't give a hoot if you have been in this business for 40 years, your customer service skills reflects a mere 40 minutes. Your staff are rolling their eyes behind your back and apologizing on your behalf. *Using the passing of the mother of a staffer two days ago, and no ability to re-tool, reflects well on the lacking Management Skills. Your clients are looking for a relaxing evening, not any further reminder of your short comings. Overpriced, Calculating, Mediocre, Time Limit, Fixed Gratuity, Not Again

    Excellent food, drinks, atmosphere. The "outdoor dining during covid" experience meant slightly less service than usual, but I really appreciate the safety measures – it felt very safe. Looking forward to going back soon.
