Hats off to the ChefThis is one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants. The food is consistently good as well as the service. I have been there for brunch serversl times. Love the Potatoe pancakes with Smoked Salmon and Eggs Benedict. Hats off to the chef for making a perfect poached egg...everytime!
Skirt Steak whether with brunch's Steak & Eggs or lunch/dinner Skirt Steak Salad is cooked perfectly too. Bacon Creme Brûlée was creamy & delicious with just a perfect hint of bacon. Tasty drink special and appetizers too.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAll around great restaurant.All around great restaurant. Sorry to hear they are closing down. But hope the new restaurant, A3, will be able to emulate them in all regards.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI had never visited the restaurantI had never visited the restaurant before and came with a colleague on a weeknight. We thought the food was fantastic! He had the ahi app and a beet salad with chicken; I had the grilled Scottish salmon. I wish I had some right now! Very pleasant staff, the bartender makes a killer martini, and just overall, a very likable experience. I will definitely go back on my next visit to San Mateo, or will maybe even make a special trip.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are sorry that AstariaWe are sorry that Astaria will soon be closing to remodel.
