Had dinner here. Ordered the steak baseball cut. It was great. We had a party of 4 and started the evening at the bar. When we ordered drinks off the menu our waiter was nice enough to go to the bar to find them and even inquired at the bar about a drink that we had earlier but couldn't remember the name. The mac n cheese is awesome.

Took the hubby here for a birthday dinner before going to the symphony and we were not disappointed. Started with the lobster hot dogs which were amazingly yummy. Mostly everyone had some kind of steak and I had the sole which was really nice. The service was good, but a little slower than we wanted since we were headed for the symphony, but we got there in time nonetheless. We all agreed that we would definitely return for another special occasion.

Steaks are really well done with an awesome sear. The sides are so/so. The mac and cheese has the dreaded "truffle oil" (can you say cheap perfume?) it kind of tasted like cheese whiz. The whipped potatoes where decent. The cauliflower fast exactly like the mac and cheese.

The service was fairly slow, but that was ok because we where really not in a hurry.

Arcadia feels like a has-been restaurant, even though its incarnation as a steakhouse is just a few years old. The carpets are threadbare in places, the chairbacks are stained, and the service is ambivalent. Our appetizer was undercooked--the flesh of the potato skins was still crunchy. The entrees were done very well, as were the sides, but by that point in the meal the bloom was off the rose. For $50+ per person w/o booze things should have been better.

Very good food with an good ambiance for the higher-end foodie. The appetizers seem to be mundane things with a twist (popcorn popped in truffle oil, french fries fried in duck fat) but the cheese options are excellent. Being a steakhouse their steaks are obviously their main focus, and they do the meats justice. Alternative entrées, such as the fish, tend to be slightly above average. Prices are very good: I've received less quality for more price at other places. I've been back here more than once, and I'll be coming back again.

Arcadia is a rare fine. I usually don't expect truly "fine food" from a restaurant in a hotel. Arcadia delivers. Everything we ate with delicious. The service was attentive but not imposing. The side dishes (we had the whipped potatoes and the cauliflower gratinee) were absolutely fantastic. My steak was done perfectly and presented in a clean and simple plating. We have been to Arcadia many times for special occasions, and I still consider it a "treat", and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

My second visit here was much better than my first. Food was good, service was just OK. It was slow at night and I think the waiter was just taking it easy so I felt like we had to hunt him down a couple times to get help.

Celebrated our anniversary here, and we absolutely loved the food and the warm, professional service. I had the Lobster Pot Pie, which Robert, our waiter, served with great care and detail, and my wife had the ribeye steak, which had a nice sear and was cooked exactly right. The mushroom bisque was my first dish, and set the tone of the whole experience - delicious. The only thing one might watch out for is the added sprinkled bits of salt, which take the dishes a little over the edge if you're conscious about sodium content.

I liked this place very much. Had to call because we were running late and they were pleasant, seated us quickly when finally there, and service was good throughout. Delicious lobster corn dogs, truffled macaroni (don't miss it), some of the best mushroom soup I've ever had, and the scallops were yummy. Big portions too. don't have that lavender cocktail though, too sweet. But otherwise wonderful.

Nice for a relaxing night out (leisurely) with great wine and solid food. Very pricey, steak was excellent - very lean. Fish was amazing - breads and fries were average. Waiter was extremely kind and knowledgeable, but lik I said - while the staff was very attentive, dinner was served at a slow pace, and the place was not crowded. All in all four out of five. I will go back, but I will not be it itching to get back until I do.

Although I did not order them on Monday, I usually order the short ribs of beef and THEY ARE THE BEST! The most tender ribs I've ever had - due to the 72 hours' cooking, I was told? - replete with mashed potatoes and squash. All for $13.00. Got to be the best bargain going for meateaters. The chocolate molten cake with caramel sauce and both ice- and whipped cream is a perfect finale - for 2 people works great, too.

My first experience was great and the food was delicious and service was great and that's the reason why I keep coming back. My Cowboy ribeye was phenomenal. The foie gras sliders was delicious, where it just melts in your mouth. The service was great,our server was Cheo, and he was excellent. We got along with him very vell. I feel that the server needs to be very out going, very down to earth and that's exactly what you need to have a good evening while enjoying a fabulous dinner.

I can't say enough about the service. Our waiter was exceptional. (I'm so disappointed to not remember his name as I would love to note him specifically.) He had wonderful recommendations from the wine to the sides and was so kind and offered impeccable service.

The food was exceptional as well. I had the dry aged NY and it was done perfectly. My companion's skirt steak was divine and our sides, especially the english peas and carrots, were incredible. After being blown away by dinner I ordered the chocolate lava cake with salted caramel ice cream. Wow. Words can't even describe how amazing it was. I honestly have never enjoyed a dessert as much as this dish. Overall my dining experience was sublime and I'll be back very soon!

Visited Arcadia during Dine San Jose week. Service was good, although our waiter was a bit functional. Lobster dogs were good. They were like corn dogs, but made with lobster mousse. Flat iron steak was flavorable, but more medium than medium rare as I ordered. Their carrot cake with creme fraiche was the best part of my meal.
My date had a truffled mac and cheese which was memorable. Arcadia is a good restaurant attached to the Marriott hotel. For wine drinkers, bring your bottle. The $20 corkage fee is better than the $15 a glass for the house cabernet.

It would have been really really good if we ( group of 5) were not subjected to the drumbeats from the bar next door from the moment we entered Arcadia until departure time.
For this high-end venue, I expect relaxing music to complement food and conversation.

Each of us in our party of 4 had steaks that were tasty and cooked to desired doneness. The lobster corndogs were somewhat fell flat (all agreed we would not order them again). Best side dish was the delicious french fries while the grilled asparagus and creamed spinach sides were just OK. I guess this could be categorized as a pet peeve, the restaurant's sound system constantly played thumping dance music all night. Of course, no one was listening to the music, but it set a "noise floor" that competes with diners' conversations. The net result is that the dining area, which could be somewhat relaxed and which has well-spaced tables, becomes very loud. Finally, the pace of service was very slow throughout the meal.

Appetizers, salads, and sides were outstanding. My NY steak was just okay. Didn't taste like a USDA prime steak and didn't seem to be seared very well to retain flavor. I had the same disappointment with a veal chop the last time I ate here. As a steakhouse specialty restaurant, it is important to get the meat right.

We went to Arcadia for my Daughter's 19th birthday. We had an early dinner as the teenagers turn into monsters if they don't eat. It was a Thursday evening we arrived at 6pm and there was only one other person there. We were pampered throughout by multiple waiters and the owner, best service I've had for years. The steaks and scallops were fabulous, my 17 year old son proclaimed he just had the best steak of his life. The starters were a bit disappointing..the lobster corn dogs were bland as was the Ahi Tuna. The blue cheese salad was a little 'blue cheesy'. The duck fries were awesome and no-one could stop eating them. The mac and cheese was a little watery and contained broccoli, so was shunned. Great place for steak and service.

Typically love Michael Mina restaurants and the perfect service. Overall the food was good...not great. Service suffered despite the fact that the restaurant was empty. When our main course arrived, the steaks were over done (asked med. rare..closer to med. well). Couldn't find our waiter...15 minutes before he came to the table to ask if everything was okay...we just said yes as we had given up trying to get it changed...but the real answer was no...Will not go back as he price/experience didn't meet expectations. Will continue to go to other Mina restaurants...especially the one in SF.

I've dined at RN74 & Michael Mina's, and thought i'd venture out to San Jose to give Arcadia a try. I brought my boyfriend out for his birthday, and everyone made it feel like a special occasion!
The server welcomed us and guided us through the menu, hilighting his favorites & the restaurants signatures. The Sommelier visited our table to assist with wine suggestions. (very tastefuly done, since i was on a budget) Halfway through dinner, the restaurant manager came by to say hello and to wish my boyfriend a happy birthday.
The food was amazing!!! You can tell this Chef is serious about execution. The tuna tartare, Kurabota pork & Chicken Mac n Cheese are fantastic! We're already planning our next visit.

The menu was different. Ordered a Filet which came on it's own so sides have to be added. Not impressed with the naming of the fries : Duck Fat Fries. Doesn't sound good to me. Would have liked to see a simple green salad on the starters menu.

My steak was great and cooked perfectly. Overall a nice experience. We were celebrating my birthday and received a comp dessert with Happy Birthday written on the plate. No embarrassing singing from the staff.
