Diner Reviews
  • "Been here twice. The food is beautiful and super yummy. Service is wonderful. Owner greets and talks to guests and make sure we are happy. Love Hults!!!!!"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "What an incredible restaurant! Hult's boasts one of (if not 'the') most delicious menus I have ever tasted. Made from seasonal and mostly local items, the meals are fresh, flavorful, unique, and 100% satisfying. The small portions allow for you to try a handful of dishes without the chance of having leftovers to waste... But who wouldn't finish anything Hult's serves?! The friendly owners meander through the dining area and personally welcome you, inquiring how you're enjoying your experience. The staff is swift and friendy as well, and incredibly knowledgable regarding everything on the menu and wine list. Hult's is definitely the gem of Los Gatos!"

  • "I loved our meal at Hult's. The service was outstanding and the food flavor was excellent. Definitely give it another try now that there is a new chef. The new menu was very nice and there were a lot of good options."

  • "Do not eat here for brunch. I should have known it would not be good when we talked in at 11:00am and the place was empty. Literally we were the first table. My second sign was that the bartender was waiting on us and she didn't know what a Bellini was.I asked for salt and they brought out three options with gain sizes so big they over power the food. Service was slow and the food is awful and expensive. For $70 we got two mimosas, two eggs Benedict, and side of waffle. That's it. This place is trying WAY too hard to be high end, but the food does not stand up. They need to go back to basics and take focus off the atmosphere and put it on the food."

  • "This will soon be an A+ restaurant: tasteful decor, friendly service, beautiful presentations. We tried the "Land Adventure," and the pork course was surprisingly bland. The other four courses were wonderful, though. We also tried the optional wine pairings, which were all very nice & went perfectly with all five courses. We will definitely be going back."

  • "We live in Los Gatos so my wife and u thought we would try it out. Here is what we thought. Pros- 1 very nice ambience. Better than it looked before 2, our waiter (Cliff) was friendly and attentative. Cons- 1. Portions are very very small 2, way over prices. $50 for a pre slice 4 oz ribeye? $18 for a glass of wine! 3, food was far from exceptional. Even the back and cheese was bland. Too many better choices in Los Gatis to consider going back."

  • "We had a lovely meal on a week night at Hult's. The restaurant has been beautifully decorated, and sound from neighboring tables didn't carry. I am not a big fan of fried chicken and ribs, grits, and other southern favorites. But Hult's, although it does have all of the above on the menu, has a much fresher, lighter view of them. We started with some fish appetizers, the carpaccio and the octopus. Both were delicious, nicely spiced. My husband tried the ribs, which were thick and meaty. He loves ribs, and though these weren't "traditional", he was very happy. The fish and scallop our guest and I had were also well-prepared and delicious. Dessert was disappointing; the chocolate trio was mostly white chocolate, the crumble was mushy."

  • "We were greeted warmly at the door by the owner and promptly seated at a window table, for a view of Hwy 9. Our server, Ann, always approached our table with a smile on her face, whether taking an order , giving samples of delightful beverages, or checking to see if we needed anything. The menu was not large and we found that quality was what the restaurant wanted to offer, not quantity. The octopus and tuna tartar appetizers were delicious and well seasoned as were the entrees of Halibut and pork loin. The cappuccino was as good as any found in Italy, a nice surprise. The ménage a tois dessert was good, but would try something different next time."

  • "Brought my parents to Hults for a birthday lunch on Sunday, staff was terrific, polite, timely and friendly. Food was good, not great, chicken and waffles ....chicken very good waffles not so much, mushy and undercooked. Rest of the plates were good. Four people, no cocktails and $75.00 + tip....really? Very expensive for brunch/breakfast with no alcohol. Will try once more and be more aware of pricing on menu."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Staff was friendly but service was lacking. waited at least 10mins for waitress to stop by, & she wanted to take our drink orders but we hadn't gotten a drink menu, so she brought one, but then didn't come back again for another 15mins & only after we flagged her down at which point she forgot we had never gotten to order drinks & wanted to take our food order. I wanted to order a pre-dinner drink & wanted to be sure I had time to drink it before my dinner came out & have wine with dinner. She assured me there would be time & then it took so long to get my drink that it came out at the exact same time as dinner. amuse bouche was inedible, Salad had wilted lettuce, waitress said mac & cheese is the best thing on menu but was only so so"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "This was our second trip to Hult's. The first was right after they opened and we had a pretty poor experience, the food was good but the wait times for the food was horrible. June 21st was a very quiet Saturday night and the restaurant was only about half full so you would expect things to be running pretty smoothly. We had half off drinks and apps in the bar. The ceviche was very bland. It really needed some seasoning. For dinner, our food was very tasty like the first time, but they still are having issues with delivery. Our food was barely warm. When we informed our server, she did not ask if she could get it warmed up for us or anything, but she was great otherwise. Good food, but Hult's needs to get their timing perfected."

  • "The food was very good and service was attentive. The owner came to speak with a couple of times. Overall a great dining experience."

  • "We went to this restaurant based on a friend's recommendation. There were five of us and from the time we arrived, we enjoyed every aspect of the restaurant. The staff were welcoming and attentive. Nice level of conversation going on in the restaurant yet we could carry on a conversation without having to yell at each other. From the first course to dessert, we all loved what we ordered and the presentation of each course was beautiful. We are all looking forward to coming here again. I loved how they got their fruits and vegetables from the Farmer's Market."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "I have been here few times and this last visit, service was good. The food was tasty, but my scallops were dry, tough and a bit stringy. They tasted great, just a bit overcooked. I will definitely be coming again, especially since I live less than a block away. The cocktails were yummy and everyone was very friendly. I have high hopes for this place and hope they can make it work at this location that has proved difficult for other restaurants."

  • "It was our first time at Hults. We went for the $5 happy hour menu. My husband and I sat at the bar and ordered all 5 of the happy hour items as well as some of their special cocktails. Great time, beautiful and classic ambiance, and wonderful conversation with the owner. We will definitely return for dinner one day and bring friends. It is a positive addition to Los Gatos, no doubt about it."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "This was our first time at the restaurant. We took my parents out for their 61st Anniversary. It is so hard to find a restaurant locally that offers excellent food in a low noise setting. We will definitely return."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "The menu sounds wonderful, but the execution is a little off, which normally wouldnt be so bad, but for the price you pay, I expected more. I had a Hamachi appetizer that tasted great, but all you could taste was the sauce and topping, the hamachi was sliced so thin (which is nice) but there was so little, that its taste was completely lost. I had the diver scallops for dinner which were nicely done, but 3 scallops for $28? And an extra $6 for 6 asparagus spears? The service was great and the ambience is nice, but I dont think the reach the level of excellence to justify the prices and small portions."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "Went to Hult's with our friends. One of us had the fixed price menu, the other 3 had entrees, and we shared an appetizer. The entrees (Chicken Saltimboca, Pork Loin) were great and ample portions. The fixed price menu was more than enough and in fact we shared the dessert and the appetizer, along with the other appetizer. We got the wine pairing with the fixed price menu; I wouldn't do that again, I would just bring a bottle of wine. It was fun tasting the different wines, but wasn't worth the $20 IMO. Overall, great food, nice ambience, decent prices. We will go back."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "The food was excellent and the staff, across the board, were very friendly and attentive. The owner stopped by the table to greet us and also to solicit our feedback. Also not noisy as many restaurants tend to be these days. Can't wait to go back and try Pigs & Pinot Wednesdays."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "This was the first visit by my wife and me to Hult's. We now know what they mean by "casual and upscale." Casual refers to the form of dress at dinnertime: shorts and short sleeve shirts were common; no ties or jackets. Upscale refers to the presentation of the food: specialty dishes of somewhat unique style. My wife liked it all very much. I would have like larger portions, some sourdough bread, and some soup."

    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "This is our second dinner at Hult's and it was awesome again. Their 3-course tasting menu is fun and has exceeded expectations both times. Choose Water (seafood), Land (red meat), Air (Poultry), or Earth (vegetarian) and the rest is chef's choice. They have been very accommodating allergies while serving an equally delish alternative to mushrooms (for instance). Add the paired winetasting and the flavors abound! Can't wait to try the Summer menu. My understanding from others was that service was a bit sketch at the very beginning when they opened but we have had nothing but great service and food in 2014. Would recommend to foodies--salmon that MELTS in your mouth and creative flavor combos (watermelon with ahi for instance)."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "We had dined here previously, just after it opened. The improvement is significant. The starters were excellent and very unique----ahi Tuna on watermelon. Two of us had salmon and two had chicken. The preparation and presentation were exceptional. We had a corner table which was quiet and we saw more Tesla Model S cars than I could imagine."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "This was our second dinner at Hult's and once again we had delicious food served by attentive, courteous servers who all wished my wife a happy birthday when we came in and again when we were seated. My wife had the salmon on a bed of kale and Swiss chard with the shredded potato puffs and I had the risotto and a side of baby carrots. To say the food is delicious is an understatement. It's more an ambrosia of fantastic flavors and textures made with a culinary expertise that affects not just your taste buds but your mood and well-being. You simply cannot eat this food and feel anything but happy and satisfied. We will most certainly be going back to try enough different selections until we have enjoyed the entire menu!"

  • "After hearing all the buzz about this fabulous new restaurant and full bar in Los Gatos, we planned a date night at Hult's. As rude as it is to break out a phone at a nice restaurant such as Hult's, I broke the rule and texted my family offering to take them to Hult's. Any excuse to get back to this wonderful establishment. Congratulations Alex and Sarah on such a phenomenal restaurant. My sincerest congratulations to Jose, the Head Chef, for clearly finding his métier. A great team that clearly has many years together cooking up some inspiring dishes for the residents of Los Gatos, and those that should surely travel to experience Hult's. Note: If I were to only order one thing again, it would be the Kobe "Eye of" Ribeye."

  • "Saw this new place on OpenTable, so decided to give it a try. Service was very good, very nice food presentation and tasted great!! I had the beet salad and my husband the meatballs. Enjoyed my salad, but love the meatballs, so good (nice spicy sauce). Waiter Kevin was very nice and attentive. Lots of wine choices by the glass or bottle. Would recommend and would go back."

  • "We had been hesitant to try this place as there were less than positive reviews from some of our friends. We gave it a shot last Friday to decide for ourselves and loved it. My husband and our friend got the Wagyu beef &loved. My other friend got the Saltimbocca - she loved. I just got the meatballs app and some sides. The waiter was honest with the time to prepare the foods;we were in no hurry, although there was a lull between appetizers - which came out right away - and the entrees. Again - we were in no hurry, so it did not bother us. Our waiter was attentive, but I would say a little too attentive? He kept coming by the table to take our order when we were visiting with one another and then was a little too quick to clear the dishes. "

  • "We have dined at Hult's on five occasions now, and each time we have had a wonderful time. Our very first time, soon after the restaurant opened, it took a little while for our order to be taken (due to some filming that was going on there) and we were given complimentary glasses of champagne, which immediately clued us in that Hult's is a class act. The rest of the meal was flawless. We returned on Valentine's Day and enjoyed the seven-course meal paired with wines - every dish and wine we had was exceptional, and our server was outstanding. The last three times we brought friends, all of whom loved their food, wine, and the cordiality of the owners. We trust the care, service, and attention to detail that Hult's brings to their guests. "

  • "Came here for dinner with one of my best friends and had and absolutely amazing experience. We were both very excited that they offer a 7 course tasting menu created nightly from the chef. We were both blown away by every course they brought out. Every dish had an excellent presentation and the flavors were absolutely amazing. The whole staff really did an amazing job of truly pampering us for our whole experience. The owner of the restaurant came to check on us and was very friendly and caring! I was also very surprised to see the chef personally deliver some of our courses to the table. He seems like a really great guy!!! I was very impressed with everything that Hult's has to offer and I am looking forward to coming back very soon."
