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
  • "the food looks delicious, but taste plain. My favorite that night was the free bread with dipping, then the hanger steak. But since it's not a steak house, the meat quality and grill skill is just slightly above average. Bone marrow is so so, nothing impressive. Rabbit crepinette taste very gamy, should order other things instead. Pork belly again is plain, although it cooked well, Flavor wise have much room to improve. Dessert is not good at all. The lemon curd beignets is very doughy. I regret to order that as the finish of my dinner. "

  • "Found it on yelp and wanted to give it a try. the place is very tiny and very noise so not great choice for romantic night out. The food is great though. Small selections but each dish is creative. The drink selection is interesting so if you don't know what they are, just ask. The waitress will help you find the drink you like from the list. Price is somewhat high but I didn't mind. Plus my mom liked it so that's a plus. Very tiny place so you must book reservation ahead. The parking is hard to find also so you might need to find street parking. This place is really noisy because I could not hear my mom across the table at all unless we spoke really loud. Kinda sad. FYI: There is only one bathroom for each gender."

  • "A friend recommended this place to me and I admit, she has a more adventurous palate. I should have known when I saw bone marrow on the menu. I half expected to see stem cells :). We had a lot of fun with our wait person, she was cool and had a good sense of humor, and well attended us. But the menu selection is strange, and the prices are crazy expensive. Seriously, $14 for 4 meatballs?"

  • "I truly enjoyed eating and dining with the ladies at The Table. It's a popular place, so the waiters move quickly to get things done. My only complaint, since the tables are so close together or you sit next to someone you don't know, you can hear others conversations."

  • "We always share dishes when we go to The Table. Started with the seasonal soda (huckleberry). A bit pricey ($5). Refreshing, but could have used more fruit flavor. The rabbit was okay...not as good as what we'd had (and adored) the previous spring. Garlic bread pudding was also just okay. Halibut was lovely, perfectly cooked and moist. Mushroom risotto was OUT OF THIS WORLD! Beautifully cooked, tons of lovely mushroom flavor, creamy and dreamy. Finished with the beignets and lemon curd. Could have eaten gallons of the curd...sweet/tart...the essence of spring. Beignets were made with ricotta and were light as air. Excellent coffee provided a nice, bitter counterpoint to this sweet dessert. Rolls from Acme Bread...fabulous!"

  • "Cocktails were outstanding! as were the bartenders. Very original drinks, all done very well. Food was good, but a bit disappointing for the price. Service needs improvement. Example: when they brought our desert, the check was brought as well. Then a minute or two later she came back to collect the check, even though we hadn't yet finished. Never asked if we wanted coffee, after dinner drinks, etc. We were only there an hour or so, so it wasn't like we overstayed our welcome. We will be back for drinks for sure."

  • "We enjoyed our evening and the food was tasty. My husband got the burger and I really liked it. I got a seasonal vegetable dish - it was tasty. The potato wedges were good but nothing out of ordinary We got the Grits with my husband being from Louisiana, I liked them but they were too out there for his taste. The pot de creme was delicious!"

  • "No need to drive to San Francisco to have such a good food. Wonderful experiences but waiter & waitress are not very responsible. Also they offer very good bread from ACME OAKLAND too."

  • "We had a terrific meal at The Table. I had the Haddock dish and it was terrific, with a nice sear on the outside and flavorful sauce and accompaniments. My husband had the pork belly and it was a real treat and packed a lot of flavor. We also had brussel sprouts, which came a little late, but were cooked perfectly. The wine recommendations were good; however, it would have been even better if the waiter could have known these without having to check with someone. The drinks we had ahead of time at the bar were stellar. My dirty martini was just right, with a local gin. The bartender knew to stir not shake! It was a special experience. Everyone was super friendly and the check-in by the co-owner was very nice. Highly recommend!"

Handcrafted cocktails, interesting food and the best burger you will ever eat...The Table is a place to return to again and again. Service is friendly, professional and relaxed. Soon to expand into adjacent property adding more tables, bigger bar area and an outdoor dining area! Can't wait!"

  • "From roasted bone marrow and rabbit fritters to beef cheek and beignets, not your usual restaurant faire. We had a group of nine and ordered most everything on the menu (multiples of several) and shared them family-style. That's a great way to avoid having to make those hard decisions when everything looks good. The food, drink and service was great. Always a treat. This was a long over-due return visit and we're looking forward the next time. Highly recommended."

  • "The Table has become a monthly tradition. Our hairstylist moved his location to Willow Glen and so now my friends and I make the drive to have our hair done after work and then over to The Table for drinks and dinner. We like to sit at the bar, but it's always packed and hard to get a seat. The bartenders are knowledgeable and fabulous; the quality of the drinks say it all. If you like bitters, this is the place to come ..... they make their own. As for food, the Red Kurri Squash Gnocchi is my favorite, but we order a lot of plates to share ..... Rustichella Cavatelli, Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Baby Beet salad ..... Yum .... I'm getting hungry! And of course you can't leave without having an order or two of their Ricotta Beignets!"

  • "Everything we consumed here was excellent. The cocktails were lively and well-made. We had the bone marrow and quail appetizers, followed by the hangar steak for my husband and roasted bass for myself. The bass was perfectly cooked and had a very interesting accompaniment of salty chorizo and lemony/sweet fennel jam. We had the pillowy ricotta beignets for dessert. Excellent food. Service was well-timed and prompt. The only small drawback was that the tables are pretty tiny and managing all the glasses & plates was a little tricky. It was quite noisy, but that actually was a good thing, allowing our conversation to be private even though we were in a big open room. We may bring friends next time we come."

  • "To have really great food, delicious wine and excellent service all in one place is such a small but important part of life. You get this at The Table. Along with it comes a really comfortable and warm atmosphere that just makes you want to go back for more. Yes, I highly recommend The Table."

  • "I made a reservation a few days in advance and was promptly seated the moment we got to the restaurant. I definitely recommend making reservations far in advance because they do book up pretty fast. The restaurant was not huge and spacious, but the cozy and great ambiance of the place made up for it. All the food we ordered was spot on and the server was very helpful in giving us recommendations on what to order from the menu. We tried a couple of their specialty cocktails and were quite impressed. Overall, a great experience and I would definitely come back."

  • "Lots of great restaurants in Willow Glen but this is one of the Best! Great, eclectice menu. Enough out of the mainstream to be interesting but not so far out as to be "off putting". Manager and staff are friendly and welcoming. Our waitress was very pleasant ant knowledgeable without being "pompous". Just LOVE this place!"

  • "San Jose doesn't have many higher-end dining experiences, much less ones that focus on local, fresh ingredients. The Table is one of the few, and one of the best in the area. The appetizer we had with brussel sprouts was a little dry, but otherwise everything was good. From the amazing burger to the tender beef, I was very impressed with what was offered. I believe the menu is seasonal. Highly recommended for a romantic dinner (though there are no real isolated tables, so be forewarned) due to the food and the ambiance."

  • "Excellent food, although still wish for more specials or more frequent turnover of menu items. Hoping that the toilet facilities will be upgraded with the remodel. Also, that the wine list will be more Cali-friendly with some higher end offerings. Great night and service as ever."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "This time I started with the Huckleberry Cobbler Cocktail - delicious! The meatballs are consistently good, as is the bone marrow. I had the Sourdough Spaetzle which was pan fried so it was crispy on the outside and tender in the middles. The Pork Belly is a delicious addition for the winter menu. The service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Everything was just right."

  • "We came here to celebrate a special occasion on the advice of a friend, and we were really impressed! Great menu, excellent attentive service. We will definitely be back. I would not show up without a reservation because it's not a big place, and there is no waiting area inside."

  • "We had a very nice meal and found the menu very interesting. The choices included the best organic and fresh products available locally and beyond. Loved the grits which I want to have again. The beignets were truly excellent hot and served with a great lemon curd. Best I have had out side on Louisiana. Will be having brunch there on Sunday."

  • "First experience here, and it won't be the last. We were greeted warmly, service (our server was Adrianna) was friendly and professional. Beef cheeks and the burger both get high marks. The kitchen takes special care with high-quality ingredients served nicely. Good job!"

  • "The food at the Table is always delicious and I love the fresh farm-to-table food concept. The menu is ever-changing; everything I've tried there has been nothing short of amazing. Even the bread (served warm with cheese + olive oil spread) is excellent! The only average aspect of this restaurant is the service. Honestly, I think I would prefer to sit at the bar (the bartender is funny & engaging) rather than at a table again. Our waitress was perfectly friendly, but I expected her to come by more often (though she seemed quite busy). The hostess mostly stood around with a bored look on her face & stared into space. She did a fine job of seating us, but didn't really offer any niceties. And she didn't wave or say anything when we left."

  • "Overall very good, however after dinner we we rushed off the table while having coffe and dessert "Sorry, can you leave soon, people are waiting" (they sat us 15 minutes late so too bad), left a bad taste which was reflected in the 10% tip. Will be back, manager might want to talk to the folks, if it ever happens again that will be it."

  • "I have dined here more then a handful of times, and every time the staff rocks, the food is gastronomic, and the cocktails send you to the moon! This restaurant is everything San Jose needs: an urban foodie empire with a warm neighborhood vibe. This my "go-to" restaurant in San Jose!"

  • "Majority of the party got there at 5:30 for happy hour and got seated at a table where it was not available. Kind of strange. Happy hour is limited anyways so make it more available or maybe let us know first so we can sit at the communal table. They did eventually let us order from the hh menu with manager approval. The grill was also not available due to ventilation issues. Majority of the party wanted a steak or burger but could not get it. I like the place and it can be great but our night and experience was not the most enjoyable."

  • "I travel to the area all the time for work (my company is HQ'd there), and have exhausted all of the options downtown, Great America, and Santana Row... this is a GREAT alternative. Food was great, unique combos, perfectly prepared. Brussel sprouts, beet salad (with a to die for hash brown thing), and spaetzle that made me wish I hadn't ordered all the pre-cursor meals... so good! Barrel to table wines that are reasonably priced and delish. Service was a little slow, but we weren't in a hurry... but I did think if I was in a hurry, its not the place to go. Its a place to have a great meal, great conversation, and enjoy!!"
