    For the cost, this was very disappointing. I haven't been to Steamers in years and now I know why. The food isn't bad, just not exciting and way overpriced. Will not be going back.

    Used to be a place where you could count on a simple fresh seafood cooked well. Not anymore! My sea bass came very undercooked. Since we sat outside and lightning was poor , I butchered fish with my knife a bit to make sure it was undercooked. The waitress looked at it and agreed that it was pretty raw. The same fish came back but then of course it got overcooked. In good restaurants they would make a new one for to make sure it is good. Well another one bites the dust , too bad I love their outside seating

    Fun place to go for a date or with a group to relax and laugh. Steamers has great cocktails, wine list, and dining. Particularly like the fresh fish specials - last night, had the wild salmon, and someone else had the fresh halibut -- both delicious. The french fried portabella mushroom with truffle seasoning sounded good, but would have been better with potatoes. Still, it was different and okay. Chow!

    The service was slow. We had to wait for a first server visit only to find out ours had left and another was taking over. Which would be fine but he told us that and said he'd be back. It just took too long between visits and we had to ask for refills and to order

    We had a great, round table near the back. Bradley was our server and he was fantastic. Always around when needed, but never in our way. Appitizers were great, but our main course meals were the very best fish we each had every had. The SeaBass with tomato sauce was fantistic. Everthing we ate was fresh, nicely presented, and sized just right. Wine recommended was a white Sincere (Sp) and delicious. Our favorite fish resturant in the Bay Area.

    My husband and I followed Yelp recommendation and were not disappointed. White tablecloths, elegantly casual feel, excellent waiter and service. We had the grilled mussels, full order and happy we did, fabulous! I had wild caught salmon grilled to perfection, my husband loved the short ribs. Highly recommend the peach cobbler to top off amazing dinner.

    We used to love the place but not this last time. It was a disappointment. I made it clear in my reservation on opentable that it was my wife's birthday. They totally forgot that and did not make her feel special. They seemed to be understaffed that day or the person who served us was new. The salmon was below average for restaurant the is known for its good seafood. I hope this was a one off or I would never go back.

    We have been coming to Steamers Grill House for many years. The service is always right on and the food is very good. They have a nice little patio to dine on away from the busy street. This is one of our favorie restaurants. The shrimp cocktail served Ceviche style is delicious.

    We had a great dining experience on the patio Sunday evening. The patio is not directly on the street so no loud speeding car sounds. Took our adult son who likes quantity as well as quality and they did not disappoint! Blackened red snapper was excellent - great flavor and texture. Son's steak was very generous --- husband's pepper crusted ahi tuna - prepared rare -- excellent.

    We shared a house salad, which was delicious and just right for sharing. We had the salmon--the BBQ style sauce was a little heavy-handed and overpowered the fish. I'd asked the fish be cooked through and it was on the edge of that--but at least it wasn't overcooked. And of course, the delicious bread. Very good service. I haven't been to Steamers in such a long time, but we will be back.

    The food still met expectations, but the service was terrible. The runners and bus staff were on point, but our waitress was cold, abrupt and inattentive. I usually give people a lot of slack - you can't be "on" all the time, but this was different. Dropped menus with no comment, didn't check up, no eye contact, and when she did talk (taking our order) it was done half turned away from the table like she was waiting to run away. The kicker - not a peep about the special occasion (anniversary)!

    We liked the restaurant and our server. The food, however, was mixed. We ordered calamari, which was tender and not over breaded or cooked crisp. The crispy prawns with coconut were a tad over cooked, but the sauce was very tasty and made the dish good enough. The house salad was worthless. The lettuce leaves were soggy (or maybe wilted) and half the salad was made up of the tough white lettuce stocks -- the dressing was not very exciting. Dinner was again, mixed. The linguine with prawns was very good. The scallops were light on scallops (3!) and VERY salty. We ate there one time before and I remember the seared Ahi Tuna was almost cooked, not seared. The menu over all looks good, but the food preparation leaves something to be desired.

    Love Steamer's! Fun place to have lunch or dinner. Great seafood to choose from. Their clam chowder is one of the best. love the Baja shrimp cocktail served in a stem glass with a nice spice to it. Sandwiches at lunch are always good and I love the shrimp BLT. You can't go wrong with a meal here.

    Our experience at Steamer's Grillhouse was mixed. The food selection is great and our meals were excellent, but the service was lacking. Our waiter could not be found most of the evening. We needed another bottle of wine but we were not able to get our waiter's attention, he was not visible, for some time. There were many empty tables on this Wednesday evening and I could see a reason for this lack of service to our table.

  • Steamer's is a Los Gatos tradition
    LovesToEat
    Dined on 6/26/2014
    Steamer's has been in Los Gatos for so long now, that it is one of "those" places. It is difficult to have a bad meal. It is elegant in décor but friendly in attitude. Waiters are not snobs; they will make you feel relaxed. The outside patio is great. It is for the most part sheltered; there can be quite a breeze going on, but its location between the buildings makes it so you can hardly notice. But, don't get the impression that it is squeezed between the buildings .. there is plenty of room. Whether a special occasion or a last minute night out, you will enjoy it. (Obviously, the closer to the bar, the more the noise. We were on the opposite side of the room from the bar, and it was fine.)

    Since Steamers is a past favorite, we chose it again. Reservations were a snap on OT but we ran into traffic problems due to a major accident. We called to let them know we would be late and the hostess on the phone thanked us for calling and told us there would be no problem holding our reservation. After arriving, we were seated at a comfortable spot. The service was prompt but not rushed. My broiled swordfish was the best I've had anywhere in years and her wild salmon was grilled to perfection. Grilled specials came with a choice of sides. The vegetables were fresh and crisp and the entire meal was perfectly served. Our waiter was attentive and prompt but not overbearing, very considerate and friendly. We'll definitely return.

    They were out of one of the ingredients for a drink my father-in-law ordered. Rather than tell him they couldn't make it, they sent someone out to purchase the ingredient. My father-in law loved it. I've always had great service here.. and will be back again. I suspect my in-laws will be back as well.

    A friend and I had an enjoyable visit at Steamer's. The noise level was low to moderate and we had no problem conversing in normal voice level - important as we were getting together to 'catch up'. The food was good, salad chilled and shrimp fresh. Our server was excellent; he offered suggestions in a friendly, low keyed manner, he anticipated our needs and still managed to never interrupted us in mid conversation to ask how we liked the food or other similar questions that servers often interject into people's visits. He did ask, but he chose a time when we were really eating and not in heavy discussion. Much appreciated. Excellent overall experience.
