Our server Robert was amazing! Met all our needs before we even needed them. Wonderful service and the food is always perfect. Consistency is the key and Arcadia nails it every time! I would recommend all of Michael Mina’s Restaurants!!!

Over priced. Especially the wine. No reason to charge 4 to 5 times retail. Very disappointing.

Food was ok but not up to the high expectations I had going into this restaurant.

There is a better steakhouse within five minutes walking distance.

Excellent food, especially the mushroom soup, the cuts/cheese tray (with the unique goose prosciutto) and the OUTSTANDING and perfectly-cooked foie gras which is legal again in CA, after the insanity of the past few years.

Quiet, spacious restaurant.

Had to wait several minutes for a table even though it was not busy at all, and we had a reservation. Once we got a table, we didn’t see our server for quite a long time. After we ordered, our salad came fairly quickly, but it was at least a half hour more that we had to wait to get our entrees. Valid wise, not good. I was charged $5 for a side of cheese for my baked potato and creamy horseradish. In my opinion, that should be on the potato in the first place.

The menu is good, but it has remained exactly the same for years, time for an update. We like to go to Arcadia on opera and symphony nights because it is located across the street from the back entrance to the California Theater. Very convenient. Wine selection is good. But please, we want to go to Arcadia seven times a season, and we need more variety in the offerings....I'm ready to bring a picnic basket just for something different....

We have eaten there several times in the past year and been very pleased as a couple. We made our reservation for 6 at 5:30 pm since we had a concert to attend and didn't wish to be rushed. We were initially taken to a table that we did not like the location of...service doors/kitchen counter and it was due to their lack of sufficient servers evidently. We told them we saw a perfectly good location that was set for 6 and asked to be moved...they initially said no, and asked us to wait in the entrance area. The restaurant NEVER filled our original table, and was very sparsely occupied during our entire time...we will NOT return during the remainder of this year. Service needs to be improved, food selections have been the same since our previous visits in 2017-18, and while portions have become much smaller, prices have increased and are not accurately stated when reserving on Open Table.

For a Michael Mina Restaraunt, this was deplorable a Crab Cake sandwich $24.00 and not very good this is San Jose, not New York. No silverware was provided when the food came we had to ask. There was no value at this restaurant.

We went before a musical at SJCPA. Due to the proximity we thought it was perfect. We arrived at 6:00 pm and the show started at 8:00. I ordered an appetizer and my wife a salad. Both ordered entrees. No coffee, no dessert. We were seated just as the lights dimmed barely making it on time. The server knew it was going slow and was very apologetic as was the manager. They credited our salad and appetizer. This was very nice of the restaurant. At least they know when service should be better. The food was average for the price. I don’t know if I would go back. My intent is for this review to be balanced. Not a slam but there are improvement areas.

This is convenient to the Opera House and the food is quite good! BUT, we got there at 5:45 and told them we needed to be out in time for 8:00 curtain. We got our drinks (which took too long) got our salads and then waited, and waited and waited for our Mains--nothing complicated--sea bass, skirt steak and short ribs. The food wasn't delivered until 7:40--we were quite anxious and upset and didn't have time for coffee or dessert and had to rush through eating. The waiter did his best, the hostess apologized and finally the manager apologized, but it didn't make the food come any faster...Very disappointing!!

Arcadia is a high end restaurant with a limited menu. We have eaten there numerous times, the food has varied from very good to excellent. This time the food was disappointing, especially given the cost. My wife had the scallops (4 reasonably sized pieces) which were distinctly not remarkable. I had the short ribs, which was good. For both dishes, the accompanying vegetables were quite unremarkable.
The service was quite good.

Hadn't been to Arcadia in a couple of years, so had a pre-opera meal on a Saturday night. Missed the tablecloths greatly. This is a steakhouse Michael Mina style set in the downtown Marriott Hotel. We skipped the steaks but enjoyed our salads (caesar and iceberg blt), chicken with truffle mac and cheese and the fish special (sea bass). Duck fat fries with three dipping sauces are served instead of bread. Portions are enormous. Somehow, we had a bit of room for some of the ice creams. The wine list is heavy on reds; we chose an Alsatian riesling which turned out not be in stock and was replaced with a comparable wine. A little expensive but worth the splurge if you don't dine there every day.

Went for brunch before a Sunday matinee. They quit serving breakfast foods at 11:00 so our only choices were from the lunch menu which was pretty limited. We started with "Lobster Corn Dogs" which were very mushy and resembled baby food in a corn meal wrapper and tasted just as bland. My guest had the crab cake sandwich; also very mushy and unremarkable. I had the chicken clubhouse; chicken seemed microwaved, avocado spread was extremely sparse and the overall sandwich was dry and underwhelming. Neither of us finished even half of our sandwiches. Even though the restaurant was almost empty, drinks took more time than they should have and service was spotty. It was a basic hotel diner, nothing special.

We used to love this restaurant. We even had the rehearsal dinner for our wedding here almost a decade ago. We came after a SJ Sharks game this weekend and had really terrible service - water not refilled, no check ins to see if we wanted to order another drink, slow, inattentive service. Apps and entrees came out at the same time.

The food was delicious, but we did have upset stomachs after...

We probably won't return. It's too bad, because this restaurant held a special place in our hearts!!

First time here, wish the hostess would have explained the options for seating a little better. Had a table/booth but a booth would have been preferred if we had known where they were. There was one available. Our salad was very late in being served so the server didn't charge us. A nice touch is the complimentary french fry tasting appetizer. The food was wonderful. Will try this restaurant again. My husband said his filet mignon was like "butter".

We had visited Arcadia when it first opened and were unimpressed for a Michael Mina restaurant. We decided to give it another try and were pleasantly surprised at how good the food was this time around. The strip steak in particular was better than most high end steak places we have visited lately - tender and cooked perfectly. Ruben also gave us excellent and professional service. Need to keep this place in mind from now on.
