Diner Reviews
  • "We came here for dinner on a Friday night. There was a party going at the bar and outside so it was pretty loud when we got there. As the party died down we were able to enjoy it a little more. The drinks - Great beer selection. I settled on a 3 philosophers but they also had selections from Allagash Saison to Old Rasputen. They had an OK wine selection as well. The food - Hot and Sour soup was really good and the friend calamari was on point. The Mongolian lamb was tasty and the candied prawns hit the spot. The service - We had a reservation but didn't need it. We had two servers help us throughout the night. They were both awesome; very attentive and made good recommendations. I would definitely recommend and we'll be back."

  • "The food and service were both terrific, but they don't validate parking, so it's truly a crapshoot to find a spot. I had the crab cakes and the cambogee beef, and my taste buds were delighted!"

  • "While their OpenTable listing mentioned validated parking, the night we went there was something going on at the SAP Center and as a result, they were not validating parking. Be advised. The portion sizes of the entrees were more than adequate. They have some interesting Asian-Fusion entrees along with some American steak standards for others."

  • "Nothing in its favor except maybe the HH drinks, everything else was a huge letdown. The fake "Asian-y" nearly inedible selections, curry, crab puffs, etc. that arrived at our table were beyond terrible, and inexcusably so considering the ridiculous expense-account pricing in this over-rated low-rent hotel bar. Won't be back, ever."

  • "We were a bit rushed as we needed to get to the theater. Food was great. I got the Sesuan prawns, and my friend got the Mongolian Beef."

  • "I found this place via Groupon, and it was very worth it! There's also a happy hour before 7 that has great prices for apps. We had spring egg rolls (standard good), potstickers (notably homemade & tasty!), beef chow mein (not enough vegetables- kinda plain), triple crown (seafood that the bf liked), and cambogee beef which was amazing and tender- very delicious! The beef was the best dish, and I highly recommend it. We didn't try any of the drinks but would come back for the happy hour. It was a hotel so the atmosphere isn't like a typical restaurant, but there was a group of people for a party, so it was lively."

  • "Mosaic is so well located in a developing urban neighborhood near two live theatres and a twelve screen movie theatre. There are year around festivals and events at their doorstep and connected to a hotel. Both the hotel and restaurant were beautifully redecorated with the last sale and the restaurant renamed "Mosaic". Extremely long waits were previously a problem. This has been corrected. The Sauvignon Blanc was thin and watery. Disappointing, the wine turned out to be the highlight of the evening. But then the food arrived! We had smelled something burning earlier and the broccoli on our plate appeared as prime suspect. Mushy, glued together noodles, canned baby corn, overcooked vegetables and no flavor...We left hungry. "

  • "The salad hot & sour was not up to par for an Asian fusion restaurant. Neither was the Chinese salad. However the flank steak and filet mignon entrees were very good."

  • "2 appetizers, 2 entrees, 2 sides. Excellent, all of them. Friendly, prompt service. Pleasant athmosphere. The waiter was able to give clear descriptions of the dishes, and recommended a nice wine. "

  • "Went on Easter Sunday as they were open when many others were closed. Unfortunately, the restaurant was empty which is too bad as the food is good overall. Nice ambience. Attached to Four Points Hotel so I think some are turned off by that. Prices for entrees were fair although wine and dessert were overpriced. $12 for lava cake with ice cream! The American entrees are a bit better value as they include sides while Asian dishes are a la carte. I had hangar steak and it was tasty. A little heavy on the salt but find that at a lot at restaurants. Lots of food for $19.99. Hubby had special 20oz rib-eye and took half home. His steak was delicious and I'd put it up against any I've had at Mortons. Here only $36 with sides! Service attentive."

  • "I didn't know this place existed until I was doing research for my group of foodies for our monthly excursion to a restaurant we haven't tried before. The menu looked interesting and moderately priced. The cocktail selection is expansive and intriguing. :) The food was excellent, and our server was uber-attentive and bantered back and forth with me and my energetic companions. LOL I will definitely revisit this restaurant!"

  • "Went for a nice dinner in downtown SJ, this was very close to our hotel ::: Menu seemed interesting, eclectic - yet from what we ordered, it was all just average to below average, a disappointing evening ::: Mosaic is very fortunate - their courtyard is ideal for serving cocktails and appetizers to the larger groups from Intel and other nearby tech businesses, which they host regularly and lavish attention on ::: For the average-Joe customer, you'll watch the action outside and think, hmmm, should have booked elsewhere..."

  • "Food was incredibly good - definitely our favorite part of the place. We wanted outdoor seating but a group event had taken up ALL of it so that was a bummer- maybe next time around. We'll be back."

  • "I bought the Groupon coupon and decided to try it. I ordered the lamb and it came on a hot plate which was good. The lamb itself was moist and tender but the sauce was a little too salty for my taste. I'm glad I got a side of rice with it otherwise it would have been too salty to eat. Other than that all the other stuff we ordered was pretty good."

  • "My friend and I went to Mosaic because I had purchased a Groupon. We both thought the meal was excellent. The food was cooked perfectly. The prices were awesome. The service was great. However, there was a retirement party going on and the noise level of the party was quite high. It would definitely have made a difference if they would have had glass walls up to separate the area that they host parties in. This way, the ambiance of the restaurant would stay the same without interfering with the noise of the party and restaurant patrons who want to enjoy a quiet meal or romantic evening. Other than that, we will definitely be going back to Mosaic Restaurant when we are in the area again."

  • "This is seriously the best Chinese restaurant I have ever been to. I bought the Groupon for Mosaic Restaurant and I decided to come with my boyfriend and his parents. When we first walked in, we were blown away by how nice and classy the place looked. We loved the decor and how everything was set up. We ordered two appetizers: the calamari and the salted peppered shrimp. I would have to say those dishes were my favorite dishes of the night. I wish we could have ordered more of them, especially the shrimp. For our entrees, we ordered the pineapple fried rice, Mongolian stir fry, chicken chow mein and honey walnut prawns. Without a doubt, the best Chinese food I have ever had. We are definitely coming back to Mosaic Restaurant!"

  • "Started with a cocktail at the bar. Service was great with a wide variety of drinks. Our drinks were very good. Dinner was also excellent with fresh and flavorful options. We started with the BBQ pork buns and had Mongolian Beef Stir Fry and Honey Walnut Prawns. All were excellent, but the Prawns were my top pick. You can tell the chef takes pride in his dishes. I'll be back again."

  • "Excellent food and service for a very good price relative to the other nearby restaurants with similar menus. I had the snow-crab stuffed salmon and my wife had the flat iron steak. Not only were the fish and steak prepared perfectly but so were the accompanying steamed vegetables and mashed potatoes. The next time I am in San Jose I will return to the Mosaic Restaurant."

  • "My husband and I had reservations for 6:30pm on a Saturday. When we got there we could see most of the restaurant was taken up by a huge birthday party. At first they tried to seat us at the bar because they had so few real tables left. I was not happy since we made reservations to sit down for dinner, not to eat at the bar. But within a few minutes of sitting us at the bar, they told us a table opened up and they moved us to it. Once seated, the service was great. We ordered numerous items that all came out slowly, but it was at a relaxing pace that allowed us to enjoy each item. We enjoyed all of the food, especially the scallop wanton soup and the stuffed tiger prawns. We would come back here is we were in the area again."

  • "Mosaic is another excellent restaurant in Downtown San Jose. The flavors are delicious. Wonderful crab cake appetizer. The entrees were even better. XO Peppered Lamb was savory and did not have the gaminess taste. Garlic Pork Belly was one of the most delicious interpretations of pork belly. Ginger Lobster Noodle was generously laced with chunks of lobster in a delicate ginger and scallion sauce. My wife and I will absolutely return to try other tempting menu items."

  • "The veggie egg rolls seemed as if they were old and fried number of times Creme bruile dessert smelt densely of eggs. Food was not up to the mark"

  • "Service was subpar, had to remind waitress about our drinks halfway onto dinner....would have brought this up sooner if she had bothered to check back with us. Busy night had a huge group that was hogging the staff....she comped the drinks which was nice but good wasn't impressive so we won't be dining there again"

  • "When we came to this restaurant it was really busy with a huge group before us so we waited a really long time to get our food and We all got really frustrated because we had a bunch of kids with us that were starving. The service really lacked in thoughtfulness and support. It's too bad because their food is really good."

  • "We order two appetisers (pork belly, calmari), large portions. Since there were only two of us, we didn't finish them as we wanted to save some room for our entre. The pork belly was surprizingly lean, and a bit dry. The calamari was good. We both ordered lamb: an XO Peppered lamb and an order of Mongolian sit fry (lamb). Both dishes looked/tasted similar, like beef, not lamb. It was very salty and mediocre. The service was friendly but we had to physically stand up and wave several times to get the attention of our waitstaff. There was only one other table dining, so it was not like she was too busy with other diners. She was firendly and chatty though whenever she came. I went ahead and left her a 25% tip."
