Diner Reviews
  • "Service was excellent. Food was excellent. I have been here several times and have never been disappointed."

  • "I had not been to Steamer's for dinner in a very long time. My family and I decided to eat dinner and found the food service good. It was a very nice dinner."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "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 enjoy Steamers. The food is always very, very good. Had a nice time. Thanks to the hostess for seating us in a quiet corner, as requested."

  • "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."

  • "Dinner was very good The fried calamari were perfectly cooked but a little underseasoned Sea bass was delish Wine service was knowledgable & friendly"

  • "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 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."

  • "I love the lunch meetings at Steamer's. Always great service, food and if you want wine list....light filled restaurant and just a great "feel" to get business done. Always a perfect restaurant for all needs@"
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Every now and then you come across a server who makes a good meal great by being unobtrusively attentive, warm and friendly with good advice on the dishes. This was such an experience, all the serve staff were on the ball and the food lived up to the service. we will be back"

  • "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."

  • "Wonderfully prepared very fresh fish. The halibut was excellent and the portion was very generous. Great atmosphere and service."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "This was a business dinner and our client liked both the food and service. Atmosphere was a bit loud, but we could hear each other across the table."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Steamer's is a consistently excellent restaurant with great service. They have one of the best Caesar salad anywhere. Love it for lunch since dinner can get kinda noisy."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "Foor was good. Service was good. Nothing outstanding, but very good. We have been before and will probably go again."
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "Our experience would have been more enjoyable. Food was great, halibut melted in your mouth, service prompt and attentive. Only drawback was very loud group next to us. When they left the noise level went down considerably. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Service was great, good variety for lunch as my friend wanted something more substantial and I wanted something lighter."
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "They put together a special menu for Mother's Day brunch, but the choices were very limiting, and nothing like their ordinary menu. Having not known about the special menu in advance, we were a bit disappointed. There weren't many seafood options, which is what we were expecting of the meal. The service was okay, but not stellar. All in all, not somewhere I'd return to or recommend. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I have eaten at Steamers several times and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent and always very fresh. The host at the front desk this time (5/7/14) was not very friendly or welcoming, but its not usually like that. The rest of the staff are super friendly and very efficient and accommodating."

  • "The food and service were amazing. I absolutely loved the mussels! We felt very special!"
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "You just can't go wrong. I've lived here forever and have watched this restaurant evolve. Food is always good. The service is always good. The atmosphere is always good. You can always count on Steamers! We always bring our own wine. . . so, the wine is excellent!"

  • "We visited for my husband's birthday. I mentioned that it was his b'day in the notes for the reservation. They gave us a nice table in a quiet area. The steamed clams were excellent, although the portion seemed a little small. The entrees were excellently prepared (scallops, and swordfish). The service was attentive. Then they brought out a Tiramisu serving with a candle in it for my husband, which was complimentary. It was a very enjoyable evening."
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "The food and service is wonderful, but it's especially nice to be able to sit down and not be drowned out by music. Great place to actually both have a good meal and visit with someone!"
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "The food and service were both exceptional! The halibut was out of this world! We'll certainly be returning soon to enjoy the great menu items."

  • "I took a friend here for her 91st birthday. We both totally enjoyed our dinner. The staff was attentive and. the service was excellent. We had salmon and it was delicious. My friends only disappointment was that the bread was not warm."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "We tried out Steamer's for the first time and were pleasantly happy with the food and service. I think their drink menu could use some updating. The food was excellent- we both had fish and it was cooked perfectly. Service was great."

  • "One of my favorite places for lunch. Great setting, good service and I would recommend ordering the fish tacos."

  • "I hadn't been to Steamers since they were across thee street - mostly because of the difficult parking. I was very pleased with the menu, and the dishes we selected. I had the Blackened Red Snapper and my son had the Halibut - both outstanding. We also loved the Thai Mussels appetizer."

  • "We were looking for a nice place to celebrate a birthday with great food, wine and service - Steamer's Grillhouse hit the mark. We were a party of four and the service was prompt but not overbearing. The food was excellent - well prepared, solid presentation. Highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "The hosting staff were great and prepared with a table appropriate for a wheelchair. our waitress seemed annoyed and misquoted the available side dishes. The salmon was prepared well, the new york strip steak was under seasoned and undercooked (i asked for medium i got medium rare). The green beans that came with the steak were so over buttered all i could taste was the salt from the butter, versus the actual bean. I have not been to steamers in years but i have fond memories of when it was a shack in a parking lot before it became the Grill house. This all led to a disappointing experience, i will likely not return."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "I do not mind to pay extra for a quality dinner, but this restaurant is one of the most overpriced places I'd ever been. This is one of those places that costs as much as it does by virtue of its location, not because the food is so great. We went there for a dinner, 3 adults and 3 kids. We've had the Wild Pacific Halibut, Sea Bass, Salmon. Kids had burgers. Food was just OK. Servise was good. The deserts was great, at least! We had a bill of $290. We are definitely not in a hurry to come back!"

  • "An old friend and I met at Steamers for a reunion of sorts. The food issue always consistent and above average. However, the highlight of the evening was our server, Ann. Ann knew the menu perfectly which came in very handy given my buddy Joe never ever orders off the menu. Ann was patient, made suggestions and tolerated Joe. The meals came and my N.Y. was just as I had ordered it and perfect temperature . Joes custom dinner came and Ann had knocked it out of the park. Again perfect. Ann stopped by frequently to check on us and made the evening memorable . If you go to SteAmers you must ask to be seated in Ann's section. She is the perfect server but I have a feeling she will soon. Do whatever she wants I. Life. Nice job steamers and Ann."

  • "I've eaten at Steamer's Grillhouse several times and have loved it. This time, however, (a Monday afternoon) the mussels were room temperature instead of being hot. They still tasted really good, so I didn't send them back. I would return, because this was probably an anomaly."
