    We had guests in from Florida who wanted a good steak and we wanted sea food. This place fit the bill for both? My wife had the black cod and said it was one of the best meals she had ever had. NY steak for my friend done"Pitsburg" just as ordered.

    Waiter was excellent. He knew it was our 5 year anniversary and presented us with complementary bubbly and at the end a nice desert platter. The food there that we had was great - oysters, tuna tartare, ribeye, and prime filet where all delicious. We also splurged and had the special peach pannicotta desert which was great too. The only thing that annoyed we was that I requested a romantic/intimate area for my wife for our anniversary and was placed right in front of the chefs. The hostess I think didn't look that this was a special occasion for us and just sat us at a regular table till we asked to be seated but were informed of a 45min wait. Other then that, the experience here was excellent!

    My husband and I had dinner at the Arcadia on the evening of our wedding anniversary. The menu was trendy and original, and had good grilled meat and fish selections. The service was excellent, and the ambience was romantic and also comfortable and casual. I would recommend the Arcadia for any special occasion.

    We wanted to try out this restaurant, even though we are seafood lovers. The menu selections were great and we shared our meal so we had opportunity to try a wider variety on the menu. Loved the lobster salad, heirloom tomatoes, grilled asparagus and the king salmon was yummy and wonderful! Finished off with a decadent chocolate molten cake. The experience was altogether great.

    For her birthday, she requested Mina. So, we had Arcadia with the kids for brunch followed up with Michael Mina in San Francisco for dinner. Our brunch was top notch. Michael's waffles and gourmet bacon made the kids happy and the birthday girl got her Farmer's omelet-good and healthy. I had the hash which now ranks as my favorite. MM knows his stuff!

    I've been to Arcadia about 5 years ago, and it was one of my favorite restaurants in San Jose. The rib eye was as good as any steak houses in the area, but nothing to rave about. The corn soup had no flavor, the fries was not as good as before, but the duck spring rolls where pretty good. Our Server forgot to place our order for our onion rings, he said he's been there since they first opened, I guess he's just tired working there with the kind of service we've experienced. If you have been to Arcadia in the past, don't expect the same excellent experience you've had in the past. If you want something better than The Cattle Company and want to pay double the price, with better ambiance head over to Arcadia!

    We had tickets to the theater so stopped here beforehand. Delicious food and great service. Had the heirloom salad to start then we all had different entrees and sides. Scallops, short ribs and flank steak were amazing. The sides were oh so good! Creamed spinach (with bacon ofcourse), grilled asparagus and how could I forget the truffle mac-n-cheese - yum! I thought for sure a bread basket was on its way and I was delightfully surprised with duck fat fries...oh goodness me - so good! Quick walk to the theater and easy to get out. My only downfall: Didn't realize they only validated if you parked in Marriott (only downside since we parked in the garage next door and paid for it $$). But so worth the stop!

    We had a great experience at Arcadia. I know this is a steak place, but we ordered the cod. It was some of the best we have eaten! We also ordered the wedge salad, and tomato salad with buratta cheese. Both were delicious. Our waiter was very friendly and accommodating. He brought us a taste of two Pinot's we were not familiar with. We were there for an early dinner before the theater. Arcadia is not inexpensive, but our food and service were well worth the money. I'm sure we will return.

    Although they have a brunch buffet I opted to order of the menu. I want6ed to try the eggs benedict and was glad I did. My meal was excellent and the hollandaise was a big part of it. It was buttery and spicy a great compliment to the perfectly cooked eggs. The service was outstanding too. Even though it was rather busy the waiter was always there when needed and made sure my coffee was always full. The overall experience truly exceeded my expectations.

    Luckily we were seated by the outside windows otherwise the central dinning area was filled with large, boisterous groups(many with children) The food was delicious, well seasoned, especially their Wedge Salad. Biggest disappointment was my husbands steak was overdone, especially at a steakhouse. Complimentary french fries fried in duck fat...what' not to like.

    90% of this experience was wonderful - the entrees were perfectly cooked, the drinks were good, the wine list extensive and the service (mostly) attentive. but there were a few blips - drinks that took too long to come to the table (the bar was not crowded), the asparagus was tough - but those are minor blips. the wait staff was friendly & helpful, and the food really was marvelous - fish & meat were all spectacular.

    Had a reservation but were seated 20 min after-similar parties sat right away and restaurant was not full, so this was a mystery. After the manager had to serve us drinks, we had to ask for a waiter who was then reluctant to come to the table (we saw & heard the exchange with the manager). Our drinks were never refilled without asking and then it took forever. We watched every table seated after us get the complimentary fries (served in place of bread) and we had to ask our waiter several times; when we finally got them they were cold. For a reservation at 7:30, we did not get served our first course until 8:40. Waiter never tried to make up for anything, simply continued to ignore our table. Manager was watching and offered nothing

    I have been to Arcadia a few times, but this past time has left a bad taste. Food took over 45 minutes to come out, the meat was not flavorful. The waiter took a long time to take our order, almost never checked up on us. Request for certain condiments were never met and water was scarce. They have even forgotten to bring our to go foods. had to wait an additional 20 minutes after our meal. Overall I brought a lot of friends raving about this place, now this place has made me look like a fool. And I am extremely disappointed and frustrated with Arcadia I will do my very best to ensure no one will ever have to experience what I did and will progressively warn everyone of this horrid experience.

    When I made my hotel reservation and saw that there was a Michael Mina restaurant I was so excited. I immediately booked a table for dinner. I was surprised that when I showed up the restaurant seemed fairly empty and yet I was told there were 3 other people waiting to be seated. I gladly ordered a drink at the bar and was seated within 10 minutes of my reservation time. I looked around to see what others were enjoying to see if there was anything that I should make sure to order. I love a good filet and couldn't resist ordering that. I started with a wedge salad that was not a wedge at all -- it was a whole head. That was the best part of the meal. Steak was dry, service was not terribly attentive. Not at all what I expected.

    I brought my dad here for father's day brunch. I ordered corned beef and hash & eggs over medium. I received large cubes of corned beef, with large cubes of potatoes and eggs over hard. No one else liked their breakfast either. Drinks took forever and did not come out at the same time despite ordering at the same time. The server asked if 1 person wanted another drink, but didn't ask anyone else who had empty glasses. The busser stacked the plates of others in front of one person, clinking the plates and silverware loudly. When switching from one course to another, we had to keep dirty forks instead of getting fresh ones. I paid way to much to eat disappointing food and to get embarrassed for my choice of restaurant.

He was incredibly friendly, very attentive, and outstandingly insightful to make our celebration a memorable one :) We had a quiet seat next to the window with a full view of the beautifully lit up civic center. It was very romantic and we thoroughly enjoyed the food, the service, and the view! There is open seating in the lobby and bar seating in the back so I'll be back with a group of friends for drinks and the delectable truffle mac and cheese :) Thanks so much Arcadia, and especially Robert, for such an amazing first impression!

    Arcadia is an excellent restaurant, maybe one of the best steakhouses in the South Bay. It's a Michael Mina restaurant, and his restaurants are first class. RN74, Bourbon Steakhouse, these are great. Arcadia is like Bourbon Steakhouse. Their signature french fry appetizer is the same at Bourbon Steakhouse, in SF and here at Arcadia. If you love great steaks, you'll love Arcadia. If you love going to a steakhouse, then you'll love Arcadia. Fleming's and Ruth's are great, but you can't get fresh oysters there. At Arcadia you can. They make a delicious chop salad, classic for a steakhouse. The Tuna tartar was delicious and done the typical way with final preparation at the table. The bone-in ribeye was great, blackened, delicious!

    The food, simply put, is fabulous. Wonderful restaurant. Bustling area which offers valet with the ticket endorsed by your waiter(ess). The duck fat fries were crispy and flavorful. The wedge salad is as artistic as it is delicious. My wife had the scallops and I had the hanger steak. Both were fantastic. The hanger steak was cooked perfectly at medium/rare. The scallops had a delicate crisp and they sat on rice cakes. We accompanied the entree with mushrooms and truffle mac'n'cheese. Excellent meal. It was a warm day so we had Level martinis.
