    Great food, accommodating for kids, friendly, celebrated son's 2 year Birthday. They brought out a dessert with candle on it, which was great. My older son was irritable first 20 min, nobody made me feel uncomfortable. Loved the Angle Hair Pasta, my kids loved it and ate for dinner next day it was delicious. Ordered it with red and white sauce mixed.

    I made reservations for my 18th wedding anniversary and Kate was very helpful in getting the flowers and gift I dropped off earlier in the day set up on our table to surprise my wife. Kate is a manager there and is very willing to help in any way possible. The wait staff was very attentive to us and very friendly. The food was great and we are looking to go back again.

    Dined on 2/14/2014
    I don't know if it was because it was Valentine's Day & it was a special menu but if felt as though everything was pre-cooked. The artichoke appetizer was unediable (very dry & tough) , the meat was dry, the mash potato's luke warm. The dessert was 2 quarter size puffs with a melon ball size scoop of ice cream & one strawberry, not berrie(s) as noted on the menu. And we had to wave the waiter over all the all the time because he didn't come to the table otherwise.

    GordonVIP
    Dined on 2/14/2014
    Be aware that on Valentine's day there is only one dinner menu and it is expensive at $58 per person, excluding tax and gratuity. The food was done well with a half-dozen oysters on the half shell one of the appetizers, a small salad and a generous selection of entrees as well as a small dessert to share. We had the surf and turf, which included 5 large prawns grilled and a filet mignon. All in all, it was a pleasurable if not outstanding meal.

    I went to Faz for an early Valentine's Day dinner. This was the first time I had been to the restaurant. I found the food to be quite good but a little over priced. The food was good but not exceptional. I had a steak that was not as tender as I would have expected. If the service had been better, I would have considered it a better value. The service wasn't bad but I felt rushed. Overall, not a bad experience but not a great value either.

    I received a confirmation of my open table reservation - when I arrived there where no tables available and the only option was to eat outside in the cold where people where smoking or at a noisy bar. Embarrassing experience - i have to challenge the credibility of open table or if it even works. This restaurant obviously does not take it seriously.

    If you're planning a visit to the North Sunnyvale (N. Mathilda & Hwy 237) area (most likely for business reasons), and you are looking for a fantastic restaurant to meet with colleagues or clients, look no further than Faz at the Sunnyvale Sheraton Hotel. And, I meant that quite literally as their isn't another restaurant of this caliber for miles in any direction! As such, Faz Sunnyvale enjoys a very steady flow of business. So, reservations are strongly recommended for weekday dining. The food is fantastic (particularly, the kebab dishes). The service is fantastic. And, I have yet to have a bad experience. Enjoy!

    We recently dined at Faz looking for a really great restaurant close to our hotel for a Saturday date night. The best thing we ate was the flatbread and dip we received when we sat down (which was really great & set our expectations). We had the "sashimi" sampler - but it wasn't raw fish at all. It came with smoked salmon, seared tuna, and shrimp. I expected at least the salmon to be raw. Our entrees were okay, but a little bland. No real mediterranean flare. Service was fine, but it was incredibly slow so it's hard to tell. There was a wedding going on in the ballroom, and only one other couple in the entire restaurant at 7:00pm on a Saturday night. All in all it was okay, but I'd expect more from an $80 dinner at a well-rated restaurant.

    If OT diners rate this a 4+ star experience - I have to reconsider the input diners have to give. Faz Sunnyvale was an average 'hotel type' restaurant on a good day. Across the board - it was not a bad night - just the standard I guess. I do not see this becoming a destination spot - ok if you are on business for a quick lunch upon further review. Once again - perhaps my expectations were off based upon the nice ratings - but this is a CA Pizza Kitchen with soggy pizza & an attitude like they know what they are doing -- for a nice dinner.....ouch.

    Faz is a throwback from when restaurants had great food and great service. The professional staff is a breath of fresh air in Silicon Valley when many restaurants try so hard on food and forget the service element. Great Mediterranean food in the Sheraton Hotel off of 237, Mathilda Avenue, and 101.

    A review should take you through arrival at the restaurant and then final departure after paying th tab. Faz was good overall. If you want to have business meeting and not go to a fast food type restaurant, then Faz doesnt dissapoint. Ambience is good, location is interesting, staff are friendly and courteous. Food is not exactly fine dining but good for business lunch or dinner which is outside the normal fair on El Camino.

    I selected FAZ based on reviews and because it was convenient to the client my team were working at that day. We sat inside but admired the outside dining scene - firepits and creative lighting. I am a vegetarian and there are not many selections. The Greek salad was pretty dull, nothing outstanding there. I had the Mediterranean Platter for my entree. It was ok but everything was icy cold like it had been sitting in a fridge for hours. The taste was muted and not that fresh. The bread also did not taste very fresh. The chocolate pecan tart was the best part of the meal. Our server was outstanding - very attentive and helpful. This is a good environment for a business lunch but I will not return for dinner.

Menu was full of choices but we had to order the sampler appetizer platter and Prawn & avocado grilled salad (YUM!), and the chicken & beef roll luncheon saffron rice. The staff was helpful they spilt our main meal for us as. Wish it was not a working lunch then I would have ordered wine. The food was amazing.

    It's good if you're stuck in that part of town and want something different than the usual hotel food (steaks, American, Mexican, expensive salads). Their menu is mainly Persian sprinkled with Italian items. Our lamb/beef kebab combo and pomegranate chicken were very tasty but a bit on the dry side. We didn't have room for dessert, but the next table ordered tiramisu and said the center of it was still frozen! Frozen tiramisu?! That's so wrong!
