A Gem in Willow GlenWe love the table and dine here often. The food is amazing and the staff are extremely helpful and welcoming.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMJim Stump winner in Willow GlenLincoln Av can add another fine addition to its growing list of wonderful eateries. The Table offers up an eclectic local menu, great service, and a fun interior. Give them a try next time you're looking for a nice dining experience.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMYou want a seat at this table!The Table is the best thing to come to San Jose in a while! Everything about this restaurant reminds me of some of the best bistros in the Hayes Valley area of SF! For starters! The roasted bone marrow and rabbit fritters are lick the plate good! And, how chef AJ makes those soups vegan, yet so "creamy," is a secret for which I would pay! Sunday brunch was sublime - I highly recommend the ricotta pancakes with lemon curd. And by all means, try any one of the signature cocktails...best sazerac I've had since New Orleans! Obviously I'm hooked, my whole family is! We will be back again and again.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBest I've found in the peninsulaFantastic food, attentive waitstaff, great whisk(e)y selection (look behind the bar, everything might not be on the menu), good atmosphere, and really reasonable pricing. It's truly a gem. My wife and I take all our out of town guests here and they've all loved it so far. The portions aren't huge, but they also aren't tiny. I usually order a starter for myself and an entrée which seems like just the right amount.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food and cute atmosphere.Delicious food and cute atmosphere. The restaurant isn't very big so it's definitely good to make reservations.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWillow Glen GemThis restaurant far exceeded my expectations. I have lived in Willow Glen for a year and believe The Table has to be the best restaurant in this area. The moment you step into the restaurant you feel as
if you are friends of the staff and that they are going to make sure you have a great dining experience. I let our server know that I am a vegan and she discussed my options for me and helped me choose my courses. I had a great meal with a terrific glass of wine. My vegetables were so fresh and cooked to a vegans delight! The rest of my family are not vegans and enjoyed their meals as well. If you are foodie who loves farm to table restauants come here you will love it!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMUniqueWe loved the uniqueness of the menu. Bone Marrow for appetizer was wonderful. Beef cheeks for dinner - fabulous. Everything was so organic and delicious! Will definitely go back.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMcocktailsDelightful small bar with excellent cocktails. Fabulous hamburger.
I'll be back for happy hour, or perhaps for a late night drink and snack.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMNeighborhood Gem!If you are looking for fresh, interesting and delicious dishes - this is the place. The care and detail in picking out their ingredients is evident. The wine list is also fun and reasonably priced. I've had some incredible wines (lower $ range) that are not available at other places, and they change up the selections to keep things interesting.
The service is friendly, warm and helpful. They value their customers and treat each table in a special, authentic and personal manner. They pay attention and make dinner fun and enjoyable.
Dinner with appetizer, a main course and a two glasses of wine will run around $100. It's worth it, but I wish I could afford to dine there more often.
p.s. The chocolate pot de creme with sea salt is amazing!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMatrendy restaurant with great food!This place is really nice and in a nice area, willow glen! Will definitely come back again5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food with good friends.Never did a grilled cheese sandwich and a cup of soup taste so heavenly.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMQuite a gastronomic experienceQuite a gastronomic experience ! Loved the food - had pork belly for starter, and braised beef cheeks for main. The Ricotta begnets with lemon curd were a spectacular finish. The service was informative and attentive, friendly and the host even turned the loud hip hop music down - not quite the best music for a restaurant this elegant.
All in all a great evening. Wine selection was good too. Will be back.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMTry new things at The TableThe service was excellent. Our server introduced herself, then listed the specials for the night as well as items on the menu that were not available for the evening. Our water glasses were constantly being refilled.
I had the beet salad, the grits and the toffee cake. Everything was presented very nicely and the flavors of the ingredients blended very nicely.
If you're looking for a quick meal, this is not the place for you. The food here is best when enjoyed in a very leisurely manner.

Tables are a little close together - the couple next to us kept trying to start a conversation with us.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was fabulos! LovedThe food was fabulos! Loved the wine on tap. And the service was stellar!!! It was our first time but will not be our last!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSee my also my reviews onSee my also my reviews on Yelp. Love this place, eat here whenever I can. Focus is on very fresh, best ingredients, creatively yet not ostentatiously combined for interesting, wonderful food. Service is friendly and good. It's great for a business or a ladies' lunch out, and great for dinner with a special someone or business colleagues or family. The wine list is small, and if you require lots of choice, you may want to bring your own bottle. But, for those who enjoy a decently drinkable table wine at a great price, try their wine on tap--they are cheap and decent.The bar drinks are lovely too! Bread-fab; desserts-perfect in my book, and now there's always some vegets., gluten free and even vegan choice-and all yummy, "regular" food4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, imaginative menu.Great, imaginative menu.

I will be returning.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe menu was very inventiveThe menu was very inventive and interesting. The wine list was ridiculously expensive!

We have made it a point to try something new every time we come and are yet to be disappointed. There are some meat appetizer items on the menu I've yet to try but with a vegetarian wife, i can hardly blame the restaurant4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThoroughly enjoyedWe had a wonderful dinner, incredible service, marvelous food.

I almost forgot about to mrntion the specialty cocktails. Great selection and always interesting and delicious. I had a Sassy Pilgram. Gin, jalapeño syrup, rhubarb juice. It was very tasty.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMUrban comfort Food at its BEST!AMAZING!! Food was perfection- we had 3 appetizers to share; rabbit fritters, pork belly, and duck confit. All three were amazing and unconventional. For entrees we had the lamb sirloin- cooked perfectly with amazing flavor and beef cheeks which fell apart in your mouth and were extremely rich in flavor. For dessert we had the beignets- little bit of heaven! Cocktails were sublime- highly recommend the bourbon side car and they have a great bourbon selection. Cannot go wrong with this restaurant!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, great food, greatAs always, great food, great service and great time. Our favorite restaurant in Willow Glen.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place 4 small corporate lunchWe enjoyed the menu, which contained selections that were unusual and rare. We were impressed that one of the menu items was not available because the chef did not feel the produce they received was in season or good enough to serve. The attention to quality was evident. We also found the staff to be very attentive.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFit for Foodies!It was our first time at the Table and all four of us really enjoyed the food and the ambiance. The service was great - our waiter made everything on the menu sound absolutely wonderful, and everything truly was absolutely wonderful.

Great spot.3/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first visit after readingOur first visit after reading good reviews. It is a very nice place! Attentive servers and host. We'll be back!2/27/2013 12:00:00 AMthis was our first time here,this was our first time here, and we will go back for sure!!! The bar tenders were great, as we arrived early for our reservation, and they were enjoyable to watch and talk to.
The table was right by to door, so that was a little less then perfect as it was cold each time someone arrived, and the noise level at the table was almost to loud, it was easier for a conversation at the bar then at the table.
The server was good, but the food was wonderful, the duck should be a meal vs. just a starter. The Lamb was wonderful.
Cant wait to go back!2/2/2013 12:00:00 AMStaff took note that it wasStaff took note that it was our anniversary and greeted us with a glass of champagne. Wonderful service. Staff was helpful explaining menu items and offering suggestions. We enjoyed several starters and delicious entrees in a warm relaxed atmosphere. We will definitely be going back!1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
