Diner Reviews
  • "Nice restaurant. good service. Food was actually good, for a brewery restaurant. Had arancini, wings, calamari, and 2 pizzas all were good. The tartare was lacking seasoning and flavor. The part of the restaurant we came for was the brews & they were disappointing, very light & lackluster. No porters or stouts, and the IPA didn't have much character."

  • "Location is perfect to start with a night out downtown. Nice patio seating and inside is very posh. Had the salad and friends had the pasta which was delicious then the German Chocolate Cake and Cheescake we shared was scrumptious. Bon Appetite!"

  • "We have been to the Los Gatos location and always had a good meal, so we thought we would try the San Jose location, plus a band we liked was going to be playing. The outdoor patio was very nice The food was good, but not great. My tri-tip sandwich was bland and my companions chicken salad was unimpressive. It is too bad, the restaurant looks great and in a nice location downtown near San Pedro Square, and the beer was very good."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Food and service were exceptional but the 15 min check check check check while the band was setting up was irritating and not necessary. I finally told him to zip it and things got better but that was ridiculous! I'll come back!!"

  • "Small group of five enjoyed dining pre-concert. Yummy vegetarian selection, Gorgonzola Gnocchi was rich and done right. Food server was prompt with good timing but thankfully not hovering Drinks came out yummy, too. Comfortable selections, a bit noisy and hard to hear in middle of dining room. All in all, a 4 out of 5."

  • "This was my 3rd visit. However, last visit totally ruined my experience and I probably won't go back anymore! I booked a dinner for 4 people on Tuesday. We arrived on time and got seated immediately. Short after, I noticed they were short staff in the evening and our waitress was hardly to be found. It took her over 30 minutes and 3 reminders after to get our 2nd cocktails. Later, another group of 25 who seated next to us and served by same waitress. Poor waitress was very stressful and didn't even came to our table after. We asked close the checks 3 times in 30mins. Waitress seem too busy and didn't care at all. My friend got mad and almost walked out the restaurant. We spent $150 for 4 people and didn't deserve 1 star service! "

  • "We had eaten at the LGB in Los Gatos, but this was our first visit to the location in San Jose. The layout and furnishing of the restaurant hasn't changed much from when it was AP Stumps, and that's generally a good thing. There are both booths and tables and the interior is nicely decorated. Our service was prompt and knowledgeable about the food and beer selection. Our visit was on a relatively quiet Saturday evening, with no Sharks game or local event at the SAP center so our experience was likely better than when the restaurant is full of folks eager to eat and get out. "

  • "I liked the food selection and the locally made beer menu. Service was quick and easy with no problems at all. Later in the evening on Fridays they have jazz music which was a nice touch. "
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "The overall experience at LGBC was good. We went on the night of a Sharks game and the place was packed, we had to wait at least 15 minutes for a table even though we had made a reservation. The service was good considering how busy they were. The mussels in curry sauce appetizer was awesome and our server brought us extra bread to soak up all of the nummy bits. Overall, a good experience."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "We split tickets with two other couples for Shark's games. As a result, we end up going to 10 games a year. When we meet other people prior to the game, we generally pick this restaurant. I would rate the grill as good. Food is typical grill food. Service is generally good. Pricing is moderate. Restaurant is clean. Noise is a little loud, but admittedly I am becoming less tolerant the older I get. Overall I give it an 8 on a scale of 1 -10."

  • "Large portions of meat for the price compared to other restaurants, friendly staff and food was excellent."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Prior to a Shark's game this place is packed and hard to get into unless you have a reservation or find a place at the bar. Food and service is great but it can get noisy on game nights."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "It was a nice place to eat - maybe we just went there on an off night. There were two large tables and then us. We were sat near the large tables - and it was noisy. I'm not sure why they didn't seat us away - there were plenty of seats....so it was strange. Wait staff was ok - but not very attentive. Food was delicious - but it took a LONG time for it to come out."
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "Recently had dinner with a group of 4 prior to the Sharks hockey game. The place was very busy but we were seated quickly (due to reservations being made ahead of time). Most patrons were also heading to the game. Told our server we were on a time schedule due to the game and he made sure we were out of there in plenty of time to walk to the arena. Food was good and atmosphere was great!"

  • "Steven is a very attentive waiter. He made sure we were taken care of! Great service & food!"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Expensive food was tasteless and the cheaper food was okay, but nothing to rave about. Drinks expensive! Cushions in booths are two low and spongy. Sit at a table! If you sit in the dining room, don't allow them to blast you with the music that should stay in the bar area."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Entree came before the salad, no refill on drinks, never saw the waiter after our food came. Waited 10 minutes for the check after our dinner dishes were cleared."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "Much too noisy. Conversation can be a problem. Service was extremely swift. We were in no hurry since we had 2 hours before show time. We had an appetizer and main course in less than 30 minutes."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "We arrived at this restaurant in plenty of time for our 6pm reservation for 3 people, before a concert at SAP. It was getting busy and crowded, but I was confident, with my reservation in hand. The host then told us that my reservation was showing up for 5pm, 4 people. Huh. A glitch happened somewhere -- but they found us a great table, even with the line backing up behind us, and took care of us in time to make our concert. Great service from the staff!"
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "Steven was an amazing server and give him so much props on making my little brothers birthday the best it could be in the Lincoln room. He was extremely kind, energetic, knew what he was doing and made it the best possible for someone who has food allergies"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The noise level was almost unbearable! The food was so good; the service was great! Unless you are into the young professionals bar scene, stay away until about 7:30pm! The loud noise really detracts from the good food and service!"
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "We made reservation, and were sitted right away..awesome for a Friday e e evening. BUT.... our family of four were sitted at a table that could fit 6. it wasn't bad except we couldn't hear each other talk and it was difficult for use to share the amazing dipping oil over the large table. and we were nrxt to.a really be party yhat was yelling to talk to each other and making lots of group annoucements. We were looking to enjoy a brewing restaurant, but couldn't even see the tanks way in the back. even when we asked abput the beers, we didn't get much info. I feel we missed out with thi great restaurant, but not going to return and risk a repeat experience. Food was.good, not every day you can get a chicken thigh sandwich with slice of ham."

  • "Good beer and average food. Close to Sharks games."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Showed up a little early for 5:15 reservations. Once we were seated, we chatted and looked over the menu and sat....and sat...and sat......several waiters cruised right past us as though we were not there (in a table in the middle of the dining room!) Finally, we had to shout out to one of the passing waiers to get some attention. He was nice enough and apologized and explained that Muffy (or whatever oue designated waitress was named) hadn't shown up yet to work her shift in our area of the restaurant. At that point, we didn't care about the excuse...we just wanted to eat and make it to the Sharks game in time. Very lame. Anyway, the food was ok once we were served. The waiter, although busy, managed to turn things around...mostly."

  • "This was our first time coming to this restaurant and let me tell you, they killed it. We had reservations at 6, just before The Eagles were playing on Friday night and we were welcomed and seated right away. The place was already starting to fill up with concert goers and I'm assuming the local crowd. Our waiter came right away and got the drink orders. My wife and I were just starting to talk when the drinks and bread came. He took our food order, fish tacos and crab sliders, and within 10 minutes or so, he brought the food! The food was excellent and the service and ambiance was even better. The craft beer was excellent! We will definitely return!"

  • "Great location for dining before an event at the SAP Center. They have bike taxi's to take you if you are running late. Good walk if you prefer. Energy flows before a shark game. You would definitely want to make reservations."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "Went before the Eagles concert, the food and drink were very good. The service attentive and left us the perfect amount of time to make the show. We overheard the front desk tell customers only reservations were being served until late. Very much appreciated that they didn't pack the place to the detriment of service. Will go back"

    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Went for dinner before a Sharks game. The food came quick but my burger was well done when I asked for Medium Rare. Plus for it coming out so fast after I ordered it I was surprised it was only warm. The same was with the pulled pork sandwich we ordered. Made use wonder if they have stuff pre cooked so they can get orders out fast for Sharks game fans. Also the fries were only warm and were limp and not crispy. For how much the burger and pork sandwich were we won't return. We don't mind paying a higher price for a burger but it better be good and cooked correctly. This place was to have a good reputation and we were let down. I would pass especially on Sharks game nights."
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "I made a reservation at this place because of its proximity to SAP Center for a concert I was taking my daughter and neice too. I thought 1 hour would be plenty of time. We were sat immediately but did not see a single server for 30 minutes. See that others were waiting a long time for their food we got up and left! We were relegated to eating hot dogs at the Arena instead. VERY FRUSTRATING!"

  • "San Jose downtown is not a happening place. But this place is below the happening level ..."
    Dined on 1/16/2014
  • "Nice for bar scene but food is not the reason to visit. Mussels were excellent appetizer. beet salad was dry- dressing a nice option but needed to request. granted it was very busy with sharks and nfl playoffs happening. chicken kabob and pork choos were solid entrees. it was still fun for our group of 6. thanks for a reservation!"
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "We were there before a Sharks game so the place was very crowded and noisy( To be expected ). We sat for 20 minutes without seeing a waiter and finally had to flag one down. But, once we got the waiter he was very friendly and very attentive. The food was good and so were the beers and wine. A good place to go to start our evening."

  • "We had a group of 8 that turned into a group of 10 on New Years Eve but we were accommodated without any problems at all! The server was pretty attentive but near the end (possibly because it was busier) we were sitting there waiting for him to come back after he had dropped off the dessert menus. We had to flag down another server to get our server for us. I had the Cobb Wrap which I'm still dreaming about! I love it! The chicken inside was perfect and so were the fries that came with it. I will definitely be returning here again."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Since I have special needs that require that I bring my own food when dining with my friends, the staff have always been so accomodating and offer to heat my food or put it in their bowls. It takes the stress out for me and I can truly enjoy the experience of the restaurant. Many restaurants do not allow me to eat my own food there, which I understand, but I know I always have a place at Los Gatos Brewing Company!"
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "Very nice, casual spot within walking distance to the SAP Center. Reservations at 6:00 got us comfortably to the arena by 7:40. I wouldn't go out of my way to just have dinner there, but great for dinner/show."
    Dined on 12/2/2013
  • "This place is very good. I rated it outstanding because it was very crowded, as there was a San Jose Sharks Hockey game that night and they still seated us on time and the service from all the employees was outstanding. Food is very good and I will continue to return to this restaurant before concerts or sports events..."
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "I don't like writing reviews like this, but my friends and I were not pleased with our meal on Friday night. The beer, includng the stout and the Oktoberfest, had very little flavor. The cask beer we wanted to try was between taps and unavailable for the duration of our visit. My ribs were very fat and the sauce was bland. My friend's pork chop was overcooked. The San Jose location is nothing the home location in Los Gatos, which is much better. I will not go back to the San Jose location."
