Great drinksWhile the Sazerac was a tiny bit different than the NOLA approach, it was excellent.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat (late) lunchI made a reservation for a group of 7 - for a business lunch. We were seated right away at a nice big round table. Since it was later, the restaurant was fairly quiet, so we could easily talk. We shared some appetizers and everyone enjoyed their food. Excellent service, attention to detail and as always, the food was great.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMKing FishThis is one of my favorite restaurants. Exceptional service and food every time! King Fish is a great blend between Nola style food and contemporary American. Whether you're craving short steak, jambalya, oysters or lobster gnocchi - there is a dish to suit your culinary appetite.
If you're looking for a fun treat and care to imbibe, order a sazerac and marvel at the blue absinthe flames as they prepare it table side for you.
The staff is great and very attentive. Great ambiance with fun jazz and soul inspired art adorning the walls.
King Fish is true San Mateo hot spot that is worth it every time.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinnerCame with husband on a impromptu date and was pleasantly surprised. Fresh oysters were very fresh and tasty. Husband had the scallops and prawns which were delicious. The lobster ravioli was good however the lobster pieces were quite small. The waiter recommended a nice Sauvignon Blanc as well as a nice dessert to finish.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMixed ReviewMixed fresh seafood appetizer for two (3 crab rolls, 6 oysters on half shell, 4 tiger prawns, tuna tartare) plus sauces, bread and butter were excellent. My wife's prime rib was quite good, average presentation. The wine list is first rate.
But the NY steak I had was tough as shoe leather, and although I was very hungry, just couldn't finish it. To their credit, the restaurant eliminated the charge and comped us with a nice dessert. Manager chose not to visit us; this is a serious mistake. Even though the wait staff was efficient, apologetic and courteous, I felt that management should have spoken with us, even if only for a few seconds. I've been a patron of this restaurant for many years but I'll not return for a while4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience!Kingfish was perfect. My cousin and I took our aunt there for her birthday. We got to sit in a nice quiet area and talk to our hearts' content. The service was attentive but not pushy. We all enjoyed our food. I'm looking forward to going back.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMJuan Carlos provided outstandingJuan Carlos provided outstanding dinner service!
