- We enjoyed our time at ThreeOpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 8/6/2011We enjoyed our time at Three Degrees. Great outdoor seating and quietly romantic. The food was excellent (though I surprisingly did not like the Mac and cheese at all - weird flavor for me - but my wife liked it). The Ceaser salad was brilliant and so was my sea bass. The wife loved the ribs. Recommended.Special Features:
- The food and service wereOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 8/4/2011The food and service were great. The air conditioning was on when we arrived and it was cold so we sat outside. Apparently, heaters had been installed to the soffit above after the building was built and electrical conduit was surface mounted everywhere. This plus the thin masonite soffit material bulging from water damage made us feel like we were sitting in a service area behind a building.
- Oysters were the best thatHeisenbergVIPDined on 7/30/2011Oysters were the best that I've had in quite awhile. All the food was very good also.
- I would have liked to sitOpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 7/28/2011I would have liked to sit outside, but there was some sort of corporate event happening. The inside was not bad though. It was roomy, it had very comfortable chairs, and the feeling in the restaurant was very relaxed. As for food, I swung by during happy hour to get the chicken, pulled pork sandwich and mac n cheese. I liked the mac, it was a white cheese and bread crumb top which gave it a nice crunch. The pulled pork had hard bits in it and was not spectacular, but alright. The chicken I was not sure if it was made to order, but the rosemary flavor could be found throughout the chicken and that was nice.
- This is in a hotel so we didDrMMDined on 7/24/2011This is in a hotel so we did not know where it was. Although off the main street, it was quite with no street noise.Special Features:
- AWFUL SERVICE!!OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 7/11/2011AWFUL! we got there at 7 and didn't get our appetizer until 7:50 and this is not a typo. oh and it was on a tuesday night and the place was pretty empty! our cocktails were sooo weak - mostly just ice and when i told the waiter he said "are you sure?" really?! am i sure?! no JA i just made it up, come on! and no, he did not replace them on the house. it is rare that i experience this horrible level of service with not even an apology from the waiter. the manager came by and when i told him what was going on he did bring us two glasses of wine but they still charged us almost $20 for the weak cocktails. the food was eh, nothing to write home about. DO NOT GO HERE!!
- the service was poor and theOpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 7/9/2011the service was poor and the restaurant was empty very poor service
- We have been twice, to theOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 7/2/2011We have been twice, to the Happy Hour half price dinner and drinks with friends. Ordered a bunch of appetizers and several glasses of wine. Very good food, and a good wine list.
- Nice facility and plenty ofOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 6/26/2011Nice facility and plenty of free parking for a Los Gatos location. One order was sent back twice and ultimately substituted for something else. However, the other order (flank staek with eggs) was excellent and they did the right thing by comping the first order completely. Waitstaff was humble & professional about the matter. All in all a positive experience and we would return there.
- Try to avoid this placegourmandrewVIPDined on 6/23/2011With an over-abundance of restaurants in Los Gatos, I can say with certainty I will not be be back here. We waited for the hostess to greet us for 5 minutes, we ordered off a very uninspired menu, ate some strange breadsticks with an even stranger "dipping butter," we ordered and waited a half hour before the food arrived, and we should have left before we ate it. The highlight was the french fries, if that gives an indication of how poor the food was. The sweet potato fries, again if this is an indication, were a soggy mess. This is golf-club-house-grill food at its very worst.
- The food was excellent, ourOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 6/21/2011The food was excellent, our server was one of the best with information about the hotel, rettr., and menu. Overall great experience!
- There was a wedding receptionOpenTable Diner Since 2002Dined on 6/11/2011There was a wedding reception going on with over 180 guests. So it was a bit noisy. But I was with a date. We had wine, appetizers and entree. The raw oysters were superb. The chilled Black RidgeVoignier was the waiter's recommendation for the oysters. What a terrific match. I had the Tank House Zinfandel with the boneless shortribs. My date had the Fleming Jenkins Victories Rose with the seared ahi. We adjourned to the bar while our waiter disappeared to the wedding party. The bartender was super. She has a terrific smile and was warm and friendly. At the bar we had the Langetwiins Midnight Reserve which is a full body red that helped ease the pain when the waiter tracked us down with the dinner tab.Special Features:
- Not a dining destinationCReneeDined on 5/14/2011Its probably a good cocktail spot but it wasn't what we were looking for in a dinner spot. It's part of a hotel and unfortunately feels that way. The wine list is small scale, again probably good for the cocktail hour but not for dinner. We didn't want to be rude so we had an appetizer and glass of wine then left to go to another reliable dining spot.
- Better for Happy HourOpenTable Diner Since 2008VIPDined on 5/13/2011This is a bar with restaurant food and seating associated. The noise from the bar/lounge folks made it feel less than a restaurant. The service was slow and did not feel attentive. Oysters ordered as an appetizer did not come. The dinner arrived and when asked about the oysters, there were looks of confusion. When they came, however, they were comp'd. The oysters were not chilled. Not warm, but definitely not chilled. They were served on a garnish of lettuce, not a bed of ice. Cocktail sauce and horseradish were the accompainiment. The chopped salad was tasty, but again, the lettuce was not cold. The horseradish crusted salmon was well prepared. The waiter seemed inexperienced and we had to get the host's attention to get our bill paid.Special Features:
- Mother's Day was just okayOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 5/8/2011Mother's Day was just okay at $42/ person. Up and down stairs to the buffet if you're seated in the main dining room- which does have the best decor and atmosphere. I just didn't like waiting for chafing dishes to be replenished late. The carving station was abandoned when I went there. Multiple guests were muttering frustrations.
- Fish tacos were very good.Aruba99VIPDined on 5/1/2011Fish tacos were very good. Service was very attentive bordering on neighborly.Special Features:
- Enjoyed my dinner. EverythingOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 4/26/2011Enjoyed my dinner. Everything was very uneventful, just how I like it. ThanksSpecial Features:
- A very good value, good dinnermunchbunchDined on 4/24/2011A very good value, good dinner specials, excellent holiday brunches, always good friendly service, Bananas Foster a dessert must. Just the right noise level - enough to be ener- gizing, but lip reading isn't necessary to have a conversation. Decor could use some jazzing up, but still a pleasant place for a nice meal. Family friendly - good for all ages. Fellow diners ranged from a few months to the nineties. Haven't tried it, but bar looks user friendly too - fireplace, non-intrusive TV. Open to dining area but not noisy.Special Features:
- Very slow service,food not worth itOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 4/8/2011Service was horrible. Food definitely wasn't worth the long wait. It is kind of a unique little place too, so it was unfortunate our server was completely inattentive and our meals were sub par. We didnt even order desert, concerned that it would take too long to come out.
- Three Degrees ( out of 12)ParissolitaireDined on 3/29/2011Mediocre at best. The food was like someone wasn't even trying. Really. We ordered the Mac n' Cheese for our little one, and I was shocked at how tasteless one could make it. Ambiance? It feels like the hotel can't decide if it wants a lounge or a restaurant. They went for both, but it's really a lounge -- not a restaurant.
- Outdoor dining is probablyOpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 3/26/2011Outdoor dining is probably good in Spring / Summer. Was raining when we went, so not good. Dining room lay out felt a little blah. They were having some leaks from the rain, so perhaps tables weren't lined up as normal. Just felt like a very sterile environment, like an open conference room.Special Features:
- Pretty good food. Waiter wasJefraDined on 3/22/2011Pretty good food. Waiter was very friendly and attentive, but food was slow to come out and the place was not crowded. Drinks were good.
- We continue to enjoy ThreeLauraVIPDined on 3/21/2011We continue to enjoy Three Degrees for many reasons. When dealing with the rain, the parking is wonderful (underground) and the elevator brings my disabled mother right up to the lobby and entrance of the restaurant without getting wet. The service is great, the food is fabulous (try the onion rings and sweet potato fries) and the atmosphere is cozy in the winter. In summer, the outside tables are inviting and there is no street noise. All around, this is one of my favorites in Los Gatos.Special Features:
- All was good, however theOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 3/19/2011All was good, however the NY Steak was very thin (just over 1/2 inch thick) and reminded me of Sizzler in the 80ies. If you are going to be great, you can't skimp on the quality of a meat of go with a thin cut.Special Features:
- The decor was nice, the foodOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 3/13/2011The decor was nice, the food was very good - once we got it. We had to track someone down to get coffee (after waiting about 10 minutes), we had to ask for individual plates for the fruit platter, we had to remind our waiter a couple of times for a few things, and the coffee was lukewarm. They were pretty busy, however, the service could have been better.
- Food and Service were good.WalterDined on 3/12/2011Food and Service were good. The place was extremely noisy, I had no idea what to expect never having been there before. I had expected some sense of intimacy, from viewing the website, but there was none at all. Maybe we just picked an off night.Special Features:
- What the place lacks in ambianceSjmgrbwDined on 3/8/2011What the place lacks in ambiance it makes up with the food. In the summer it might show better with the out door dining. The menu is unfortunately limited, but what there was is excellent.Special Features:
- We had a very nice waiter,OpenTable Diner Since 2005Dined on 3/8/2011We had a very nice waiter, he was very attentive and asked us how we liked the meal and wine. The meal was fair but I have better there before.Special Features:
- Loud group. A bit of a waitOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 3/4/2011Loud group. A bit of a wait for dinner. Was not greeted at all and not clear on the seating. Meals were great. Table service was also great.Special Features:
- Three Degrees provided theZingalDined on 3/1/2011Three Degrees provided the perfect atmosphere for 3 friends to catch up on life while enjoying good food and wine. The servers were attentive but not intrusive and the food was excellent. We will definitely return.Special Features:
- We expecting a great experienceOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 2/27/2011We expecting a great experience but were very disappointed with the overall experience. Lack of service and cold food. Servers are not trained and watched bussers running through the dining room. With so many great restaurants in Los Gatos, do not waste your time or money here. Obviously not managed.
- Definatley worth a tryOpenTable Diner Since 2005VIPDined on 2/20/2011Very nicely prepared food and ample portions at extremely reasonable pricing. Helpful staff. Located at the very end of town so it's not nearly as popular as it deserves to be. Definatley worth a try if you haven't been there before.
- DissapointingOpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 2/20/2011We recommended this restaurant to our friends based on my and my husbands exprience a couple of months ago. We reserved a table for six. Everything went well the hostess was very nice and caring, until we met our waitress. My friend asked if she could try a taste of one of the red wines from the winelist and the waitress said reluctantly yes but to hurry up ' we are very busy tonight'. My friends face dropped and that is how the evening started out. The food was not as good as the first time we dined but as per our waitress they were very busy in the kitchen. Our group was well into the main course and my husband still waited for his entree. The hostess or manager did not charge him for his meal because of the long wait.Special Features:
- Who knew that a restaurantwagsVIPDined on 2/14/2011Who knew that a restaurant hiding in a small town's businessman's hotel could be this good! Everything we tried was beautifully prepared and presented
- Tables are a little small. ForOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 2/14/2011Tables are a little small. For some reason, many diners seemed to want to shout to each other rather than talking... Seems to be a major problem these days but surprising in such an elegant atmosphere. The food was outstanding and the service, though rushed, was good.Special Features:
- Mike, the restaurant managerOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 2/11/2011Mike, the restaurant manager took his time to come to our table and greet us. Very nice touch. The food order, on the other hand, took a long time before it was served to us. I noticed that there were only 1 server and 1 helper and there was a group of 6-8 people at the same that we were there, so service took a slower time than normal. We were there approximately, for 2 hours, we had to take our desserts to our room as we were getting tired. Other than that, food was great.Special Features:
- My husband and I were pleasantlyCalgirlVIPDined on 2/11/2011My husband and I were pleasantly surprised by this restaurant, which is in our home town but which we had not yet patronized. The food was excellent and the service was even better -- attentive but not hovering. The pianist in the dining area contributed to the "energetic" noise level but was definitely enjoyable. Other Los Gatos diners should give this place a try. They might also be quite pleasantly surprised.Special Features:
- Came back for the third timeOpenTable Diner Since 2004VIPDined on 2/9/2011Came back for the third time and loved it. You can get high end dishes or just a burger. Check out happy hour and piano entertainment.Special Features:
- Very Loud, Took A while toOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 2/4/2011Very Loud, Took A while to be greeted by the hostess.Special Features:
- Good service. good for group.OpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 1/31/2011I was expecting a more quite and romantic environment from this place but instead I believe this place is more good for group and causal hang out. Although they did give us two champagne on the house for the occasion but that just don't cover up the noise and environment. We ordered dozen of half oyster. I was disappointed. They were warm and ice on the plate was almost gone when they were serve. For the entree I ordered filet mignon for myself and seared bass for my wife. No complain for the steak. The fish however was little too sweet. The asparagus, over grilled, they were burned. At that point we just skipped the dessert and leave. I don't think I will be back for a romantic night, but a group hang out will be ok. Service is the best.Special Features:
