A word from The Table
About The Table:

The Table is an urban neighborhood restaurant focused on seasonal ingredients, hand-crafted cocktails and progressive wines. We are called The Table because we recognize a table’s unique ability to bring together delicious food, fun drinks and good people. Many of life’s best memories have been created around a table.



Our cuisine is contemporary American, paying tribute to the people and cultures that call this valley home. We believe that the quality of our product begins at the source—with the farmers, ranchers, and dairymen that produce them. By establishing relationships with local farms and ranches, our goal is to understand the origins of everything we cook and seek out only those ingredients produced with integrity and care. We commit to delivering delicious food that highlights the quality of the ingredients we source, free of over-manipulation.

Diner Reviews
  • "As with so many restaurants these days, cavernous spaces with hard surfaces is the default decor. Result: unacceptable noise levels, particularly with a music sound track booming in the background that becomes the foreground since you can't hear your companion speak anyway."

  • "The Table is fast becoming the spot to go to in the Willow Glen neighborhood. Very interesting and changing menu, excellent cocktail, wine and beer selection plus a cool vibe make the place great."

  • "I really like the food at The Table. They have single-party tables and the communal table. I find the communal table to be highly undesirable as it is very wide and it is difficult to carry on a conversation across the table. I have reluctantly sat there as a walk-in, but when we decided to have a birthday celebration, I made reservations. I was so disappointed to be told that I was sitting at the communal table. When I expressed my disappointment I was told that I could have a regular table but needed to be out in an hour for a reservation! I was a reservation! Really! The lesson is ... request a single-party table IN your reservation. The manager ended up letting us stay at the table for our whole meal, but it was a stressful start."

  • "I took my husband to The Table for his birthday. I was expecting great things and I was not disappointed! From the bone marrow sharable plate to the melon salad we were off to a great start. Oh and the drink special of the day...watermelon & cucumber juice with a secret liquor and refreshingly spicy habanero simple syrup. I think I could of had a pitcher! It was so refreshing!! For dinner my hubby had the hangar steak which was cooked to perfection and I had the corn chowder which normally comes with porcini mushrooms but this night, they were chanterelles! Our waitress topped off a great dinner with a complimentary dessert to celebrate my hubby's birthday. I can't wait to go back!!"

  • "THE TABLE is my favorite restaurant. I bring friends and out-of-town guests to have brunch. Food is great, especially the Scotch Egg and Lemon Pancakes! YUM! I know that everyone is going to be friendly, and we'll have great service and personal interaction."

  • "The service and outstanding menu is what makes The Table stand out. Simple gestures like water being refilled, napkins being replaced regularly—and even a birthday dessert to-go for my boyfriend; all made our experience a great and memorable one."

  • "The Table is my favorite resturant in Willow Glen. I do miss their meatballs, please bring then back. When you have a good thing, you should keep it going."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Some very interesting items on the menu, but portions were rediculously small. My date and I each got three bites at most from three different appetizers. We didn't order an entree because we figured after about forty-five dollars worth of shareable plates, we would have had plenty to eat. The beer I ordered was not very good. The mixed drink he ordered was great, as well as the flavors in the beets appetizer. Overall, I think it's overpriced for the portions you get. It was fun trying something new, but we wouldn't go back."

  • "Service was great. Our waitress was enthusiastic and fun to talk to. Food was great. We had the braised beef...outstanding! The burger was delicious, one of the best burgers ever. For dessert we had the chocolate pots de crème - fabulous! And the goat cheese cake was excellent. Love this place."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "The service was good, the ambience was lively and inviting, but unfortunately the food was not that good. It was also expensive for rather small portions. The best things we had were the desserts (lemon curd ricotta beignets and chocolate pot de creme, both very tasty), but the apps and entrees were mediocre at best. Pork belly was small and undercooked (fat was not even remotely rendered); mushroom risotto was okay but nothing momentous (and not very many mushrooms); hangar steak was flavorful but chewy; melon "salad" was really more like a cold soup, with only 4-5 pieces of cantaloupe and tomatoes in it (for $10!). We had the bone marrow app too, which had mixed reviews. Also, menu items had been subbed out for less appealing items."

  • "The food here is just fabulous. Truly fit for foodies. And the service is always great. The Table is my go-to restaurant in Willow Glen. It's a small-ish restaurant and reservations book up fast -- worth planning ahead for."

  • "this place is absolutely amazing the best food and cocktails in San Jose. A must try"
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "The food and service were fantastic ! Noise level a little high...... and seating was very close together. We heard every word of our neighbor's conversation. We had the steamed clams (Delicious) and the fig salad (the dressing was to die for)....and the halibut (very tasty and moist).... We would definitely go back again."

  • "Great place to eat with a different variety of foods that you would normally not make at home! Great atmosphere and can't wait for expansion! Food was very slow getting to our table on a Monday night but it was worth the wait! Fresh and delicious! Perfect portion size!"

  • "I've never had a horrible experience here yet. This place has been my favorite go to dining spot since it opened. The staff is amazing, the food is divine, and the drinks are delicious. I've always been fond of restaurants that focus on seasonal foods, local purveyors, and simple dishes. The Table will always have room in my heart and belly."

  • "Our first time to The Table. We had reservations - a must - and everything went well. We were seated promtly. Salads were excellent - special soup of the day was excellent. ( Cauliflower Soup). We ordered a vegatarian entree and the Brasied beef. Vegetarian entree was Sourdough S... - it was very nice. Braised beef was very good. Dessert - two decaf press coffees and one Pot de creme - Chocolate. Food was excellen. Not inexpensive, but the service was excellent and refreshing. We will go back and will recommend to others. Expect to spend $$$ or more. We did not have alchohol, but they have a nice selection of wine, beer, and whiskey."

  • "It was tough to get in, but we absolutely loved The Table. The ambiance was perfect - bustling, a little noisy perhaps but full of life and energy. There were 4 of us at dinner and we each made completely different choices and tasted each others dishes. I can honestly say there wasn't a single weak dish - it was clear that the chef has real talent. The garlic bread-pudding, mole meatballs, halibut and hanger steak were all perfection, even the banana bread "snack" was to die for.... the service staff were friendly and helpful - I really don't have a bad thing to say..."

  • "It has been a few months since we have dined at The Table and there were a few changes to the menu. The service, drinks and food are still outstanding. The soft shell crab appetizer stood out and it was amazing. Hopefully it’s still on the menu the next time I visit. "

  • "Garlic Bread Pudding. Brilliant. Four apps and an entree. All were exceptional. Great service by our waiter Vu. Wonderful dining experience. g "

  • "The Table was recommended to us by a friend who is a really good cook. We had made an online reservation for 8pm and were seated promptly. All of the staff were friendly, courteous and efficient. I like that it is a farm to table style restaurant using local organic materials in a creative, delicious and beautiful presentation. They make a lot of the components for the meal themselves. Their mixologist makes the bitters, syrups and probably other things he uses for his creations. I had a delicious strawberry rhubarb soda created there. We will most definitely be back and recommend the restaurant to others. They are pretty hopping so reservations are a good idea. "

  • " Drink service - great. Unfortunately, two diners who were waiting for their table standing near the bar kept "invading" our space with her overly large purse - to the point where we concerned about two of us getting bonked in the head. The table we were seated at clearly should not have been placed so close to the bar. It was quite irritating. Secondly, we ordered two of the potato apps which were delightful. Unfortunately, 2 of the diners also ordered the hamburger and the waiter never mentioned that the very same potatoes came as the side. It would have been nice if the waiter said "hey, the hamburgers also come with the same potoatoes - perhaps a small side salad would be more to your liking. We were overserved on the potatoes. "

  • "I've been coming here with my SO for a considerable amount of time, and they have yet to fail us. The food is always inspired, cooked to perfection, and sinfully delicious. The service has always been prompt, but not to the point of irritation, friendly, and knowledgeable about the food. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Even with all the great restaurants in The Valley, we still come back to The Table periodically because it is always fun, the cocktails always perfect, the food always wonderful, and the desserts always memorable. ...and we always leave saying we need to come back to The Table more often."

  • "Very good service and food. A little in the pricey side but very yummy."
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "Dinner was well-developed and reasonably tasty, but in small portions. We had two appetizers (menu calls it 'Share') but their 'local spring harvest' dish, while tasty enough, would be like a small salad for one. Their soft-shell crab special was ONE crab. Their Pan Roasted Southern California Halibut portion was good; the Salt Roasted Pork Belly was tasty but small for a main dish at ~1" x1"x 8". Dessert was Pot de creme au chocolate[sic] and goat cheese cake, shared by both of us; both dishes were good. The room had many tables packed together; I was not fond of being so close to my neighbor when paying that much ($110+ for two, including a beer and a soda-like spritzer). It's a pleasant place to go if your boss is paying."

  • "Love the Farm to Table approach to food. Changes with the seasons and good surprises here. Our favorite place in San Jose."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "The noise level was so loud that we could not hear each other talk at our table. Family style seating, (you sit with others at a long table), with a hard wooden bench on one side. Not great for older folks. The chairs are metal and not much more comfortable."

  • "We found the price fixed food options creative and full of flavors. The fixed price menu was a great option to the al carte and will do it again."

  • "Portions were not large but food was delicious. They forgot our garlic bread pudding (which we had been excited about) and then it turned out they had run out. Service was very nice, but slow. Complimentary after-dinner port was a nice touch to leave a better final impression. Beignets were AMAZING, we should have ordered more so we didn't have to share them."
    Dined on 5/7/2014
  • "We have needed this type of great, casual, "today" kind of restaurant in Willow Glen for some time. It's a little noisy for me but everything else made up for it. Food is good and they're trying to keep it fresh and creative. The beet salad was killer. I have had hundreds of beet salads and this is one of the best to me. I can't wait for their outdoor dining venue."

  • "Arrived early to partake in a happy hour drink. Hostess said our table was ready if we would like and we accepted. We asked about happy hour and hostess brought us happy hour menu. When waiter came he told us that happy hour menu and drinks were only being offered at the bar and communal table. We asked if we could order something from the happy hour menu(at non-happy hour price and not on regular menu) and he said no. We were turned off by the lack of customer service with that issue. Aside from that bad start we had a great dinner."
