- BarbaraVIPDined on 11/6/2014We just love eating outside on the back deck. It is so relaxing, even with the sound of golf balls. Today they had one of my favorites - Prawn/Crostini salad. Yum!Special Features:

- Waiter was best part of experienceOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 10/18/2014Our waiter was engaging, helpful and very efficient. Our group of 5 was from the neighboring conference so we had a deadline and he was on top of everything. Only reason I gave an overall rating of 4 stars is because AFTER our visit, Open Table emails me that we get NO DINING POINTS (0) because we made our reservation on Open Table by clicking on their Open Table link on THe Club restaurant website. Not sure who is responsible for this ridiculous policy...Open Table or The Club Restaurant... but it needs to be changed!
- BarbaraVIPDined on 10/4/2014The food was excellent. I had a lamb burger without the bun. Yum! We went to watch the Giants play with some friends. We usually like to seat outside, because it is so relaxing.Special Features:
- Fun LocationOpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 9/23/2014The food here was average, I had a salad with grilled chicken and my friend had the pastrami sandwich. My salad was good, but the chicken was dry. My friends pastrami sandwich was very greasy, and the meat dry. Service at lunch hour was so-so. I saw 1 waitress in the dining room, and another one serving the patio. I don't know if I will be returning here.Special Features:

- Lovely lunchCAMARDDined on 7/29/2014My guests had not been to The Club & were delighted with the 2 salads: the Club special & Caprese. The latter was outstanding with the heirloom tomatoes of many colors, fresh mozzarella & balsamic @ room temperature. Cajun linguine:slightly mustard cream sauce with sausage, chicken, peas & mushrooms was shared by all. Our Elder "loves" calamari & had the calamari steak sandwich which came with salad, without question when he requested soup he received soup & was delighted with his lunch. Portions are very shareable due to their size. Lunch was rounded out with 2 glasses of Mark West Pinot Noir & 2 coffees. Our quiet corner facilitate the enjoyment by the group due to hearing issues.Special Features:

- choices for modern eatingCAMARDDined on 7/12/2014Had the wine special of the month with a split of the Club special half salad which was perfect size, then shared crab cakes & coconut chicken. All food items arrived @ the same time which was nice. We choose to eat out side, although you do hear the crack of a golf ball, because it was chilly inside. Later as we left inside had warmed up. Prices are moderate with tax & tip we got away with $30/person for a light dinner.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great dining experienceCarolinNovatoDined on 2/7/2014The Club is a small jewel located at McInnis Golf Course Center. I have enjoyed many tasty lunches there, and had an excellent prime rib dinner on Friday night. The meat was tender, juicy, and flavorful--just the way I like it. Wine servings are always generous. The servers, as usual, were pleasant, friendly, and efficient. Very enjoyable evening, and I will be back.Special Features:

- Ladies Christmas LuncheonmsgourmetDined on 12/17/2013My tennis pals and I had a delciious Christmas luncheon. Restaurant was completely filled with lots of talking but the acoustics seemed adequate. We could still have a private conversation without too much effort. They ordered a prawn salad and the prawns were gigantic. A Mumm bottle of champagne was substituted for the one we picked out after they realized they did not have what we requested. Highly recommend.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- VAriety of salads & other lunchFrankieVIPDined on 9/5/2013Salmon salad was very nicely prepared and very good; lettuce was, however, a bit wilted. Special burgers looked good.

- Hidden GemOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 8/4/2013A wonderful off-the-beaten-path restaurant, quiet and mellow when we visited on an early Sunday evening. Nature walks nearby, a golf course, a cool miniature golf course, and outdoor dining. Very enjoyable. I had a petite New York steak; my companion a Caesar salad with grilled salmon. Both were very tasty. The Caesar with salmon was not exactly on the menu but our server and the kitchen were happy to oblige. Recommended as a nice, relaxed drinking and dining experience, especially before or after going to a movie at the nearby Smith Ranch Road multiplex.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
