Pleasant surpriseFrom the friendly un-rushed service to the near-perfect preparation and taste of each dish - with the exception of dessert (this part of their menu needs some work) - this restaurant made us feel right at home while satisfying our taste buds. Lots of attention to detail here.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome in Every Way!WOW! This restaurant has been off my radar for far too long. We had an absolutely lovely dinner with a very inventive menu, great wine and excellent service! We had a three course menu with excellent choices, ample serving sizes and every dish was perfectly prepared and beautifully presented! This is also an excellent value, especially with the well-priced wine pairings. As a longtime mid-peninsula diner I truly believe this is the BEST restaurant in the Burlingame/San Mateo area. Viognier is now my favorite local spot, hands down! Love it! For those confused by the entrance through the grocery store, just enter through the restaurant's main entrance at the corner of B and Fourth.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous every visit. DeliciousFabulous every visit. Delicious seasonal. Changing menu keeps diners intrigued.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic DinnerI had dinner with my wife and mother here to celebrate her 75th birthday. We seem to come here once a year for a special occasion, and each time I think to myself "why don't we come here more often." Our meal was outstanding and the staff couldn't have been nicer.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food & Service, Bad LocationWide variety of choices for prefix menus, good food, good service (would be rated excellent had the somelier used decanter for the wine), good portion for gourmet dinner. Not a romantic setting, relatively empty for Friday night, too hard to find, walking through Draegger to find the restaurant is not ideal. Good setting for groups (has big dinning table like one in a custom home), private room for cooking lesson, good alternative restaurant to other high end places in the city, not sure worth the drive from South Bay.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMit was a five-star experience,it was a five-star experience, period. We've been here quite a few times before and like it a lot. But this past visit was the best. Our previous experience was always good. But usually there is one or two items (food) that didn't wowed us which means good but not impressive. But this past dinner we had, (both of us chose the three-course menu), from appetizers to entrees to deserts, everything was great. The mushroom salad and squid salad, pork loin and belly, as well as the "coffee and cigar" and white chochalate cheesecake, it was just amazing!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMEXACTLY what I expected andEXACTLY what I expected and wanted for dinner. My guest loved it and the food too. Service excellent.
Did not disappoint in any way.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, this is an incredibleAs always, this is an incredible dining experience. I would recommend to anyone who wants a nice dinner out in a very comfortable venue. A little pricy, but worth it.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways wonderful and imaginativeAlways wonderful and imaginative food. Service is great, with great attention to detail. For example, this one of the few places I've been to that makes sure the milk that comes with coffee at the end of the meal is hot. Amazing desserts.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMService a little slower thanService a little slower than I would like but food and wine were excellent.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOverlooked gem but very goodWe've eaten at Viognier many times. The food is consistently very good, the restaurant is not noisy (a huge plus as many restaurants are so loud it's like eating in a bar), service is attentive but not invasive.
We brought another couple and had two flatbread appetizers. One that has been on their menu for many years (a plus) the salmon and creme the other a brussel sprout and pancetta (very tasty). I had a crawfish croquette starter (flavorful and nice crunch), a flounder entre (lightly seasoned with salt and pepper) which was outstanding!! and a Boston creme cake for dessert. My wife had the artichoke and asparagus ravioli starter (excellent) and mushroom risotto (perfectly cooked). Presentation of all the dishes was very nice!!

ExcellentHidden gem in San Mateo. Excellent food every time, staff very friendly. Highly recommend3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent. ServiceFood was excellent. Service was good, but a little strange. Took a while to get a menu and they brought the check at the end of the night without asking if we wanted a coffee or drink. Overall, I would definitely recommend .3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful evening-great food/svceWhat a beautiful evening! We brought our good friends to the restaurant to celebrate their anniversary, and had a great time. Food - as usual - was excellent, the service attentive yet unobtrusive, and the ambiance wonderful.
