For the most part the food was outstanding. The market salad was unique and delicious and paired perfectly with the Enoki Mushroom soup. The seared Scallop entree neared perfection. However, the Black Cod had no substance or flavor. The Deconstructed Carrot Cake provided an excellent finish.
Service was very good, the wine list is extensive with a number of rare selections, and the ambiance was relaxing and quiet enough to engage in conversation.

The food was great, and usually the kind of place that offers such great food also offers great service. This is not the case at all at Arcadia. On Valentine's day, the special menu had 2 options for first course and 2 options for second course. When our food arrived for second course, they brought the wrong plate for my husband (out of 2 options!!!). They gave me my plate saying they would bring the proper plate for him shortly. I waited before starting eating to the point where my food was getting colder so I started eating, feeling so bad to eat in front of him who had nothing! I was taking as much time as possible and even then, I was almost done when his food arrived. For a $450 meal, the best part of eating with your spouse on Valentine's day was horrible. They should have bring back both plates and bring our food out at the same time. The somelier was very nice, but water could have been filled up more often and we had to pour our wine ourselves. The main course could have use at least one vegetable. This was one of the worst experiences I had in my life for the service. It is such a shame because the food was really good.

Everything was very good! However one big thought! Valentines Day is a very romantic time and couples take many a trip down memory lane during this time. So why doesn't a restaurant of this magnitude play romantic music. Instead of the semi-loud tekno music. Which is not romantic at all and takes away from the flow of real love. So going to this restaurant on Valentines Day isn't working at all for me.

Arcadia is now my favorite steakhouse. Sure, I've been to the best, Ruth's Chris, Alexander's, Epic, Sundance, Flemings, Borbes Mill, but the preparation of the Arcadia steak is amazing. You don't need to ask for a blackened steak. That's the way it comes, and it tastes the way a steak should taste. No, the plate isn't sizzling like Ruth's Chris which is really a very close second, but the taste of Arcadia's steak make it something special, and it's even larger. But it's also the other dishes that make Arcadia really special. The bone marrow is out of this world. Oysters are typical. The french fries trio is great. And well, the decor is quite elegant. You can't beat Arcadia. It is not my goto place for steaks! But the prices are typical of a fine steakhouse.

Good spot for dinner before theatre. Good variety of options. The scallops were succulent and abundant. The black cod was silky and delicious. The steaks were good but nothing special. The sides we ordered were all good, but they were not as large a serving as we expected since we told they were meant to be shared. Our problem with dinner was with the service: although the restaurant was not crowded, our waiter was not attentive. We constantly had to look for him to get his attention. And when the bill arrived, we were overcharged so it took even longer to get out. If you are going to the theatre, definitely allow extra time for paying and double-check your bill.

For a restaurant advertised as fine dining, ARCADIA falls short in providing a premium feel. We walked into an empty hostess station and had to wait for someone to notice us. We were celebrating a birthday and despite the restaurant being empty , were taken to a small table in the middle of the space. We had to ask for a table by the window and had to WAIT. And then taken to a small table with very uncomfortable chairs. We saw booths that were set up for 4 and then given to parties of 2- but were not offered those by the incompetent hostess. The food was good - the waiting service was decent but the hosting and the seating arrangement were really not up to par.

We came here for a live theater show. I was hoping for a special lunch, but the menu and wine selection was extremely limited. We all managed to find something on the menu, but it was all average in preparation, taste and imagination - burger was very basic, chicken bacon sandwich was on plain wheat toast. My salad was $16 for a half plate, and 5 grilled shrimp for another $12 on the other half. I thought this would be a lunch size salad and not an appetizer or side dish salad. Very disappointed with my meal. The waiter was friendly, food was timely, and the restaurant was nice inside, we had a booth by the window. However, we will not be back, the food was completely overrated and overpriced.

I really enjoyed my meal at Arcadia. I had the filet cooked medium and it was perfect. I've eaten at several other steak houses and the quality of the meat was superior to most others and what you expect when you go to a high end steakhouse. The filet was seasoned perfectly, nothing that distracted from the flavor of the meat. The truffle Mac and Cheese was a great addition to the Filet. The only criticism I had was the delay in seating us. there was no one waiting and plenty of open tables. Because we did not have a reservation, they made us wait for 10-15 minutes before seating us. they seated a party of 4 and another party of 2 that came in after us. Maybe they had reservations. the table they took us to was open the entire time we waited in the lounge. Once seated, the service was great.

Though the hostess wished us a happy anniversary, our server did not bring us complimentary champagne or dessert that we are used to receiving at other Michael Mina restaurants, as it has become a tradition to go to one each anniversary. Service was slow, despite very few other diners. We ordered the ahi tuna and beet salad appetizers, fois gras, filet mignon and black cod. Nothing was remarkable and the steak was barely warm when it arrived.

My friend and I made a reservation for Christmas lunch. We arrived a little late for our reservation however we were seated promptly without any problem. After receiving menus,it took a while for our waiter to notice us and come take the order. When taking the order he seemed to be distracted. And when he filled our water glasses he was in such a rush that he over spilled and did not notice and did not clean it up until I called him back to the table. However when the food arrives we will completely satisfied and ate everything on plates. My Angus filet which I had requested to be cooked medium rare camper factly medium rare. I have not had such a good steak in a long time. We took two orders of the carrot cake home and devoured them with relish... can recommend the angus fillet and carrot cake. Service spotty but perhaps a Christmas Day and the waiters mind was elsewhere

We had a poor experience here. Service was very slow and dishes came out interrupted by up to 15 minutes between first person served and last. Had to send back steaks that were cold. Manager did take care of it deducting the price of the steaks and sent us a complimentry cheese platter. That was appreciated.

Made the mistake of trying to enter from an unusable door on the street; you have to enter from within the hotel.

I was pleased that they honored my request for a booth.

Menu items were expensive, but typical for a good steakhouse. My NY Strip was cooked perfectly and delicious. As is typical with steakhouses, all items were ala cart, which makes for an expensive meal. Ordered a side of mushrooms, which seemed to be marinated, and they were tasty with the steak.

Waiter brought a little "gift from the chef" before dinner--a set of three cups, containing seasoned French fries, each with its own dipping sauce.

This place has great ambiance. Dishes were a little mixed and not sure if a chef changed; the food used to be more consistent. Oysters great, Mac & cheese delicious, but filet mignon was just ok and the desserts were disappointing. The beignets used to be incredibly amazing....seriously.....to die. But they changed the recipe for some reason and now they are doughy tasteless things. Lastly, it was a friend's birthday and I called in advance. They told me they would bring out a complimentary dessert for her but they ended up neglecting to do so....perhaps was lost in the mix. But our waiter was amazing and when I told him he rectified the situation.

Not really a high end restaurant. It's like in a hotel lobby or we were in the kitchen room. The steaks were adequate but I think a New York strip should be cooked more then rare, very chewy. The sides were not very hot, more warm then anything. The service is ok, nothing special. The tables for two are small and the hostess kept walking between us and the next little table that was very close, I think she's extremely lazy or tired. The whole staff seemed lackadaisical and unmotivated except the bartender he had some personality and engaged us. I don't want to be too hard on them but I can get a mediocre steak anywhere. If this is the best San Jose has to offer they may be in trouble.

We usually enjoy Arcadia, but this experience was terrible. From the valet (which took 20 minutes to get to our car) to the waiter who left us hanging forever and made us miss our next reservation at the cocktail lounge down the street. This place has gone downhill. The shrimp cocktail had guts and wasn't cleaned well, our steak was cooked rare when we asked for medium. We went to celebrate a birthday dinner for my boyfriend, and right when we sat down we were given a card and the waiter said he would bring a special birthday treat. The birthday treat never came, and our waiter disappeared for almost 20 minutes while we were just trying to get the check to leave to make our next reservation. Very disappointed, used to love this place especially when they had the lobster corn dogs on the menu (what happened to those?). Won't be back for a while... too bad, Michael Minna restaurants are usually so good.
