Largely ignored by staff during Thanksgiving dinner. I told the server that it seems nobody wanted to be there and working the shift. She agreed. Worst of all, we were charged for gratuity for really lousy service.

We were practically alone in the restaurant on Thanksgiving. There were three of us and our service dog. I have to say the staff was absolutely great. Rene, our waiter, was so kind to our dog! The food was not great, but we had a great time nonetheless thanks to all the staff persons who were there working on Thanksgiving and doing their very best. Thanks to all!

We took my husband out for his birthday. I had no idea it was connected to a hotel so at first, I was a little disappointed. When we walked in , to my surprise, it was beautiful!! My party of four and a single diner were the only people in the restaurant. I enjoyed the quiet time with my family. The service was great! The food was ok. I had the pan seared chicken which was severely overcooked my family is the type who won't eat unless everyone is eating so I didn't send it back. Everyone else thought their food was good. Even though there were only five diners and it was 5 PM, they were out of several things. All in all, I had a nice meal. I would go back for cocktails but not for dinner.

Their Mother's Day unlimited brunch was awesome. Can't speak about everyday dining, but everyone there at the hotel was friendly. Staff went out of their way to ask the executive chef about peanut-containing deserts and even brought my daughter a plate of dessert she could enjoy (chocolate covered strawberries)! Will be back next year with more people...

A nice quick dinner out. The burger is a great go to. Haven't brought myself to try the sushi yet though.
Noticed lately that I cannot find Bistro 880 in Open Table directly, but can RSVP via Open Table through the Bistro 880 website. May be losing potential diners as a result.

This restaurant is attached to the DoubleTree Hotel. It's not bad for a hotel restaurant, but be aware that you're going to a hotel restaurant. Looks newly redesigned/renovated. Bar looks like it's probably pretty fun and there are tvs all over the walls. But it's not really a family dinner type of atmosphere/place.
Sounds like a member of their staff went on break unexpectedly, so the food came out slowly and in a weird order, but the waitress and manager were nice and tried their best to explain and deal with the issue. We never got any bread though.
I didn't have the right expectation for this restaurant. The restaurant tried and it was a decent place. Burgers, fish n' chips, etc. type of food seem to be the best deal and are super tasty looking. My grandma got the fish and chips, which was really great! Other food is OK, but slightly pricey.

I met my cousin here as it was central to her home and my hotel in San Jose. First time we'd seen each other in 30 years. We had a quiet and intimate booth in which we could catch up! Great service and the food was pretty good!

Waitress was attentive. We ordered the fish and chips. While the portion was ample, the fish was near burned and was dry. The bread was also over baked and hard to cut. We paid 30 for a cup of coffee, a salad, and an entree. Pretty pricy for the quality.

We Came here for birthday with reservations, when we mention it to the lady at the front, they don't even know that we have reservations, had to talk to 3 different people about our reservations , seems disorganized about their reservations and finally the manager talk to us , and we request for table by the band , he told us we can't and we have to come early if we want to take that table ( but we have reservations, duhh and no one was sitting there) overall the food was okay, our waitress not bad , but I'm not sure we'll come back here.

Overall the brunch on Mother's Day was a great value. The food was great, the service was great. The one thing that was most disappointing was when we got there for our 1230 reservation, there was already at least 35-40 people ahead of us in line. The line was to pay before the meal, tax and tip included, before you got seated. This could have gone a lot faster if better organized. We were not seated until 1:00 and I was with someone who could not stand or walk, so this was a bit awkward having to wait in a line for a half hour.

We had been wanting to try this place since the hotel changed to the Doubletree and the restaurant became Bistro 880 so we made reservations for Valentine's dinner. The remodel is modern and comfortable with lots of tv's for bar dining. The tables were set romantically with candlelight and chocolates and live piano music in the background. The price fixed menu had great selections and everything we had was delicious! A great value and a memorable experience!

We celebrated the New Year's Eve there and everything was pretty okay except for the billing. We were charged more than what we expected. It was a fine dining set for a fix price excluding gratuity and tax (which is normal). But when we got our bill there is additional "surcharge" that we don't know what is that for. I hate hidden charges!!!

We went for a business lunch - turned out we were the only ones there. Even with an Open Table reservation, there was a sign up that said "Closed". We went to the front desk of the hotel and they contacted someone to seat us - it took a long time. No one else came in the entire time we were there. It took ages to get our order taken, and service after that was VERY spotty. On the upside, the food, once it arrived, was very good - both taste and presentation - the only downside is that we were not asked how we wanted the burger done. It came medium well - we would have preferred medium. It was certainly quiet - if you want a good place for a business lunch where you won't be disturbed and if you don't mind waiting or being almost totally ignored, this is the place.

The restaurant was disappointing when compared to the Yelp listing. I thought this was going to be a quaint bistro with an interesting menu. Not so. It was a hotel restaurant. The service was great with a nice atmosphere, but the menu was ho-hum. Not much for vegetarians.

The place inside was gorgeous however it was empty for a Saturday night. it was my Birthday Dinner, there were a couple of meals that were returned Steak and burger. The table near us, received a desert with candle and I told the receptionist that I was celebrating a Birthday. Didn't receive anything. The music started at 9:00 pm and I must say it was next to the dinning area, and seemed very odd. The server was one for 10 people, yet the place was EMPTY in the Dining area. The server disappeared so often it was tough to ask questions get refills on water order drinks. Not to mention the music was HORRIBLE, some of the workers said the same. (house music of some sort) To charge the additional amount of $10.00 a person for very small area and horrible music isn't acceptable. I thought the charge was for a dance floor and much darker area (very bright there for a club scene) I chose to drive out to foster city (Crown Plaza) and pay $10.00 per person. Had a blast!

We were surprised to know they had a $10 cover charge per person, which was not worth it at a place like this due to their very limited drink and food menu. I had the worse pina colada I've ever had and the warm chocolate molten cake was more on the cold side.
