Definitely worth a visit!
The restaurant was very accommodation to my dietary restrictions, and the food was delicious! We are both "out of townies" (Berkeley and France) and planned to meet in San Jose for dinner. We were not disappointed. This is our second visit to the restaurant in a year. The menu is small, but everything is super fresh. We took our own wine this time, but only because it is a favorite...the wine list is very good. Definitely worth a visit.

71 Saint Peter is our "go to" restaurant in San Jose when we want a good meal in pleasant surroundings at moderate prices. We always find several enjoyable dishes on the menu and are never disappointed.

My coworkers and I enjoyed
My coworkers and I enjoyed our time here. We are celebrating our newly renovated office and all of the hard work we have put into the space. We came for dinner and had a great time. The food and atmosphere was exactly what we were looking for- fun and fresh. We're hoping to recommend the space for future client and team events. Thanks-

Restaurant was great. We were seated outside, had attentive wait service, but unfortunately, the "view" of the parking structure combined with a million, very loud, 49er fans marred the ambience. Otherwise....great restaurant!

A nice place to dine
We enjoyed the food with reasonable good service. We had a table at about the glass door which was open and the street seemed to have a lot of traffic. While the food was good and in good portions, but the menu was a little short and did not offer a lot of selections. The 'hearts of Romaine salad' with ceasar dressing was terrific and the high spot of the meal.

Mother's Day Brunch
It was nice to have a menu to pick from instead of one fixed price for too much food. The food is superb. Service was a little slow and waiter looked like he had a hangover but overall it was a wonderful brunch with my family in a private room. Have gone before and wlll continue.

Great food and service!

Excellent Filet and Wine.
Excellent restaurant. Consistently good food and service. Nice wine list. Enjoyed a bottle of Next Door Wine with dinner. Nice place for dinner before a Sharks game or concert at HP Pavillion.

We ate outside as it was a nice night. It was a bit oud with traffic and people on the street. If you want a more, quiet, romantic dinner I would suggest you eat inside. I had the duck two ways which was excellent and our server was fantastic.

My Birthday Lunch was great. Started with the grill asparagus and portabello mushroom. They were fantastic. Then we had the grilled prawn and scallop salad. Both the prawn and the scallop were grilled perfectly. They melted in our mouths. The smokey taste was a perfect complement to the spinach salad which was well washed and topped with a wonderful mango chutney dressing. We finished with the cinnamon and ginger bread pudding with carmel sea salt gelato. They were paired perfectly. Thank for a wonderful lunch.

Very lovely in the heart of San Jose. Optional indoor or outdoor dining. Great selection of wines from Spain and Europe not just California wines.

Love the place
Location is right in the middle of lots of activity which makes it fun. I had an asparagus salad that was just grand. Try it. Good unknown wines. We really like going here although tables are very small and chairs aren't that comfy. Good food makes up for it all. Jazz on weekends is a very good addition- in the back so not right in your ear.

Girls Night Out
This restaurant was a great location for dinner before a concert downtown. We had the special that night which was a generous portion with asparagas and potatoes- delish- and our server also recommended the gnocchi which was another hit. Great service , right across from the parking garage which was free with our validation from thr restaurant,. We ate on the front patio, nice ambiance on San Pedro!

Romantic Dinner for Two
My husband and I were in the mood for some music and fine dining, so we tried 71 Saint Peter. It was better than expected. The atmosphere was very romantic. The guitarist was exceptional and the food was delicious.

a pleasant treat in San Jose
Finding this 20 year old gem right in downtown San Jose was wonderful. We knew nothing about it and simply booked it for convenience and what seemed to be a nice menu before going to a concert. We were really pleased with everything...the location, the food was creative, delicious and there was a lot to eat...we took home a box of leftovers. The staff were really friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. We will definitely go back sometime.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pros: Very good food, food prices, service, and location. Cons: The Ceasar salad was terrible and the wine prices are way too high.

Making a comeback
I have dined there at least once a year for 15 years, the service was much improved since my last visit...and the duck continues to please.

Try a Friday Luncheon
Having been to 71 St. Peter several times for dinner, this was my first luncheon experience. The food here is always very very good, but just short of excellent. Therefore, I don't come here often because the prices at dinner are always a bit more ambitious than the food. No exception with lunch, it's definitely an expense account place if someone invites. The portions here, OTOH, are very generous and some appetizers can even be shared...very rare.
The highlight of this visit was outdoor seating on Friday when the Farmer's Market is held and San Pedro is closed to vehicular traffic. Fabulous people watching in a very comfortable setting.

Food was great, especially loved the crab cake appetizer. Service was exceptional ! Helped us pick a wine which paired with both meals (steak and cod) which we both liked a lot. Also recommended a dessert wine which was fun and different. Our waitress was attentive, but not overly so. They have 1/2 bottles of wine, reasonably priced, which is always a plus. Would definitely go back. Oh, loved the live jazz as well

Lovely restaurant, excellent food
The host Luis imbues this restaurant and his food with his own happy, outgoing personality. The staff is well-trained to serve and take care of guests without being intrusive. A small jazz combo including singers made for a festive evening, again, without intruding on discussions at the table. My cod dish was so good, moist and tender fish in a very light tomato sauce that complimented without overwhelming the fish. Others at the table had the tri-tip special and veal scaloppine, high praises from all.
We have gone to this restaurant for many years and find that it just gets better. Luis recently added a bar area creating a very warm and welcoming space to enjoy a cocktail or excellent wine.
Try this place, you will be pleased.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
I reserved a table for four. As soon as I walked in I was pleasantly surprised by the ambiance. We arrived around 6:45-7:00 pm. The music and down lit tables were the highlight. Even though it is a busy street it did not interfere with out night.
First course and Entree were delicious. The waiter was attentive, kind and eager to help. Would ask if we needed anything pretty much at the right time. We never felt as if he was interrupting us. Very pleased with the experience.

A long time gem in downtown San Jos
I've been going here for quite some time for both lunch but mostly for dinner and it always lives up to my expectations.The menu is limited but has something for everyone and they always have a couple of specials. The wine menu is varied and very reasonably. A great place at night to eat outside and people watch the San Pedro Square crowd.

71 Saint Peter
One of my favorite restaurants in San Jose. We've been going for years and typically our "go to" place for special occasions, ie our anniversary.

An outstanding meal and evening. We celebrated my daughters 11th birthday with good food and finshed the meal with a wonderful birthday cupcake. Keep up the good work Luis.

I dig it.
Great ambiance, rustic but classy, good live music, friendly staff. The food was great. It was a little out of my price range but didn't totally break the bank. Good wine list but not cheap, you may want to bring your own bottle. They have a small patio area in front which was pleasant.

A nice time
My girlfriend and I needed to catch up and this was the perfect place..we ate outdoors and the service was excellent..not intrusive and it was very quiet..my only complaint was that I didn't get a very good cut of the flat iron steak..it was hard to get through but still very tasty..

Nice spot on San Pedro
Very nice early evening before show. Quiet, probably because it was early and it was not a hockey night. They have sidewalk tables and a very nice interior dining room. I had the duck, which was very tasty. My wife's pork tenderloin was very good, as well. We were surprised that they do not serve cocktails, but the wine and beer lists were sufficient.

We ate lunch at 71 St. Peter
We ate lunch at 71 St. Peter on a weekday. We had eaten there before and had enjoyed our meals and the location was perfect for meeting friends downtown. The restaurant was very quiet (we were the only ones there for the first ten minutes) and only three other tables eventually were served. The lunch scene for a seat-down restaurant appears to be impacted by the casual dining choices in the area because we saw a lot of people carrying take-out food back to work. Also, of course, our food although very good was not inexpensive.

The Rib-eye steak special was awesome. We enjoyed a bottle of 2010 Next Door Wine which had an excellent fruit forward taste and a wonderful finish. I'll be back again....

Food, Wine, Music
My wife, myself and a friend ate at this restaurant. Our first delight was to find that there was going to be live music. I ordered the Duck 2 Ways, my wife ordered the Scallops and Roasted Beet appetizers while our friend ordered the Swordfish special. First of all the Duck in both the Confit and grilled preparation was cooked perfectly!! The sauce was absolutely wonderful complimenting the Duck perfectly. My wife's Scallops were also done to perfection and seasoned well. The Roasted Beet salad while tasty was over dressed which detracted from the star ingredients. The swordfish I thought was dry and over cooked. The Pineapple Salsa topping though was terrific!!. The music was perfect and the music enhanced our evening.
