    We came to Three Degrees based on Yelp reviews. The dining room at 7pm on Friday was nearly empty. Our server, Sergio, was great. The food, however, wasn't anything special. We read that the chef was Vietnamese, so we were expecting something different than standard hotel food. Alas, that didn't exist. The food was decent but not worth the drive from North San Jose.

    We came back for our wedding anniversary! We got married 7 years ago and Toll House Hotel was our host hotel. Thanks to Glenn and Sergio for being a great host and server. The chocolate covered strawberries and champagne toast to kick of the dinner were perfect, and surprised my wife. We ate the scallop risotto, lamb sliders, tuna tartar, and brussels sprouts! All so excellent and tasteful.

    As usual, we were about the only group in the dining room. The service was attentive and friendly. The food was solid--the Humboldt Fog appetizer was very good. The meatloaf and garlic mashed potatoes seemed to be the highlight. Veggie pasta was the usual we-have-to-have-a-veggie-entree quality--ok, but nothing special. The octopus and sea scallop small plate was good, but the Kobe beef burger didn't sit too well afterwards.

    I had not been to Three Degrees for some time, and the first thing I noticed was that them menu had changed. The change was a definite move down-scale. I ordered a steak and was quite disappointed. It was very tough and not much flavor. The waiter was professional enough, but had a somewhat unpleasant demeanor. I will not be going back to Three Degrees.

    Unfortunately my husbands meal was not very good. Really enjoyed the flat bread however, their signature dish of short ribs was dry and disappointing. The manager was very quick to apologize and offer money back. We appreciated that level of attention. Since this is really not a restaurant separate from the bar/hotel the ambience is very casual.

    The most remarkable aspects of the restaurant is the service and that the tables are not crammed together. when the bartender suggested a drink that we ended up not liking they made us a different drink with no cost to us. When a pasta dish came out missing one of the vegetables listed in the menu they brought out a new plate very quickly and apologized profusely. The waiter was friendly and attentive. I Ioved not feeling cramped and I like the tables next to us could hear our conversation, which is common in so many restaurants. The food was very good but, there were few options for someone who does not eat red meat; one chicken option abs one pork. I has the pork chop which was cooked perfectly.

    I chose to go to 3 Degrees because I liked the menu that was posted online. Imagine my surprise when I was handed a completely different menu (the menu changed 2 weeks prior--plenty of time to update their website). The food was mediocre at best. The server who has worked there for 16 years was NOT service oriented and not willing to make any accommodations for us (my guest doesn't like brussel sprouts but he wouldn't offer her another choice). The acoustics are terrible. The restaurant was only 1/4 full and it sounded like we were in a crowded stadium. I will never dine there again, nor will I recommend 3 degrees to anyone.

    The décor is upscale and enjoyable. Parking is available in the back. The service is great. I took a bottle of wine to share with my dinner guests. While waiting for all the dinner guests to show up we had a drink at the bar. The bartender was very friendly and shared some of drink mix secrets. The waiter took the bottle of wine I brought and set it on our table while waiting. The staff was very nice and the food was great and reasonably priced. I highly recommend this as an outstanding dining experience.

We all enjoyed our dinner while listening to the music. The Portobello Napoleon dish that I had was creative and delicious. We look forward to coming back.

    I was not sure about a large restaurant in a hotel but this was a grat choice for us. The food exceeded our expectaions and the service was perfect. The space is very large and uncluttered which seems unfriendly at first glance but once you are seated it is very comforting and private. The food was fresh very nicley cooked and the portions were generous. Would like more wine choices but we found a good choice among their offerings. We will be back.

    There was no one to seat us... that would help create the perfect ambiance too!! It should be feeling a little more upscale with someone to seat you even if the restaurabt is not very busy. Service was a bit slow for a restsurabt not at full capacity. The singer and pianist were perfect on that night and the food was amazing but the wine list was not the greatest.

    Took my wife and mother out for dinner here on a Sunday night. It was very quiet, which I think is understandable for a hotel restaurant like this (most people tend to go on vacation FROM Los Gatos in the summer, not to it). The food was good. It wasn't especially daring--thought the tuna tartar appetizer with taro chips was a nice stretch--but the presentation was good and the ingredients seemed to be of high quality. The thing that makes this place stand out is the courtyard seating area. It seemed like the perfect place to go relax on a summer night for either light dining or drinks (and to be fair, there were some interesting cocktails on the menu).

    And we loved every bite. I wouldn't characterized this location as "family" dining... no kids menu or high chairs. But if you have children who are food "adventurers" this would be a fun evening, and they were very accommodating. Service was impeccable. The food was some of the best I've had in years.... and we've sampled nearly every restaurant in Los Gatos this year. Somehow we glanced over this one until last week. Glad we tried it. This is where we will be bringing out of town family for a nice dinner out.

    We had to leave even though we came to Three Degrees to celebrate my son's graduation from high school 6/7/13. The service was non-existent, waiting 20 minutes for a menu. Finally we were told it would take an hour for our food to arrive. We were on a limited time frame and had made our reservation weeks in advance. The wait staff were rude, non-caring and incompetent, telling us the 'reservations' had come in at the same time. We have never had this kind of treatment, with out-of-town guests, our son still wearing his grad robe, and all of us hungry. They had major problems that night, even though the place was not even full. They ruined our special evening. We didn't even get to eat anything but walked out completely at a loss for words.

    Had a good, not great dinner at the Three Degrees restaurant when staying at the Toll House. Although the food was "good", I won't make a effort to hurry back unless I was staying at the hotel. It was convenient as I was meeting up with relatives and we had all flown in for a family memorial. We were staying at the hotel. The butter lettuce salad was really good, but the New York Steak was a touch tough. I ordered it because it was served with truffled mac and cheese which was good. Happily the veggie was fresh asparagus instead of the usual and nasty steamed broccoli every restaurant uses. We had breakfast in the restaurant each day as part of our B and B rate. It was good and the pancakes were very good. The staff was attentive.

    We used Thre Degrees for a family meal, with ages ranging from 1 year old to 70+. Good environment for kids as it is not very formal or quiet, good food for older people as it is quite traditional. Service was good. It was my first time in the restaurant, so it was a suprise to me that it is just the hotel bar area. There is not a seperate restaurant. This was OK for us as it suited having young kids at the table better, but if you want a romantic meal or a more formal meal it would be a problem. Recommended though for kids, large parties, lunch, brunch etc.....

    We chose this restaurant after finding out that The Wine Cellar was closed for Christams Eve. Maybe we were expecting too much. You know, things like table cloths and clean silverware. Our service was so bad we actually found ourselves laughing and comiserating with other tables! We thought our being ignored and not able to order drinks (or even receive bread) for twenty minutes was the worst until we noticed that the table next to ours was completely ignored and didn't get to order for forty-five minutes (but then again they at least got an apology). Can not possibly recommend.

    Three of us went for Thanksgiving dinner. We all agreed the food was very good. We were able to carry on a conversation and hear each other easily. This was important to us, and a big reason why we choose a restaurant for a social outing. Two of us had the turkey dinner. The sauce and seasonings were a bit unusual and worked very well. The other person had the salmon and said it was cooked just right. Cooked through and yet still moist. The only reason for not giving the place five stars was that initially service was very slow. It took a long time before the salads were brought, and one person's coffee got cold waiting for the cream to be brought. After that initial slowness, the waiter was very attentive. We plan to go back.
