Cafe Pro Bono
The food is so wonderful andThe food is so wonderful and the management so cordial, kitchen back-ups and a table on the sidewalk are a small price to pay.

Notably absent were the usual crowd of Silicone Valley programmers (young men invariably), so the noise level was down, and one could carry on a civilized conversation.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways fabulous!Susan's Downfall is a must. This is such a nice and friendly restaurant with delectable menu items prepared beautifully. Their specials are fabulous, crab salad or halibut is out of this world! Clean and crisp with white linen tablecloths and warm and inviting ambiance. It has been a treat to dine here, with friends, Aunts, co-workers, family since the year 2000 whether out on the patio in the sunshine or inside well-lit and comfortable!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Experience!Brought a few friends and family here during the middle of the week, and had a great time! The service was excellent, as the server paid attention to us, as needed, and had a witty sense of humor as well. He was engaging and friendly, and didn't make any errors in our orders. The place is a bit challenging to find if you aren't familiar with this area, but there is a nice parking lot right next to it, which is convenient. The food here was great (there were six of us in our party, and we all enjoyed our entrees), but I would recommend that you try their Susie's Downfall and Polenta. I had the Seabass for my entree, but I think it's a special item, so I'm not sure if it's available regularly. In all, our group had a great experience!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMI brought 3 out of town guests.I brought 3 out of town guests. All were impressed, happy and would come back anytime.
