I'm always amazed that this place doesn't get packed. Best burgers and bar food in Silicon Valley. Expert bartenders and culinary staff as well the greatest floor staff. I've been coming here since they opened and always will!

Food was good but major rip off. Caesar salad was $17. And I counted 16 pieces of lettuce. RIPPED off. Wine 🍷 was delicious. Service was horrible absolutely horrible. But very nice and kind service.

I have come here since the early days and really liked the place until one day they changed the menu, prices went up, quality went down. So I would still go from time to time to check if there had been any improvement and finally, after some persistence here we are!
I am delighted to say there has been improvements in the food and the service finally. I am so glad I can make this place my go to again. The flank steak salad was on point, the truffle tots did smell like truffle, service was impeccable. I will be back!

The food was good. Duck fried french fries - awesome and so were the corn dog bites.

Not a big fan of sitting on high bar stools.

Good place to gather for simple but very good fare. Reserved for a party of 6 and they were very accomodating on a super busy day to add a 7th.
It is bit noisy but that's what makes it fun.
Pricey ($20 cheeseburger) but what the heck!
I'll go back

Unique items on the menu, cocktail selection has several new takes on classics, and when my wife booked the reservation she mentioned it was our anniversary so they brought out a delightful dessert selection after our meal.

My colleague and I were in the Bay Area and decided to eat there. We were seated promptly and the service was great. Throughout the area were plenty of TV’s with multiple sports on.

The food (appetizers, salad, main course) were all great.

DO get the warm pretzel appetizer - they have a really nice "chew" to them and are great with or without the cheese dip or honey mustard. We would be happy with 10 orders of these alone! The pastrami-spiced brisket sandwich is also very good, but my new fave is the fish & chips - a nice change with the pieces of phyllo-crusted cod. The tarragon tartar sauce really makes the dish for me.

Didn’t record our OpenTable visit even though we mentioned it at arrival and departure. Didn’t prepare our cocktails properly and took a long time when delivered. When entree arrived asked for a side of fries and was told in five minutes . Wait staff didn’t place the order, the remembered and brought after we completed meal. Tried to make it right by buying us an after dinner drink.

The problem is that the wait staff seems totally focused on large groups and leaves couples dining unattended.

The place was relatively quiet. However as usual the service & attention was impeccable. We had one of my favorite servers Vilai. The chef also brought up a new pasta dish for us to taste. It was for a future planned menu item. It was delicious. Overall👍👍👍

I ordered the steak sandwich which cost ~$20. The "steak" was a thinly sliced piece of steak which was filled with fat / gristle. Had I not been at a business lunch, I would have returned the food. Service was great but food was unacceptable.

Each month, we visit Bourbon Pub to play trivia. I called ahead the day of our reservation and specified that we were playing trivia and asked for a table near the trivia reader. Upon arrival, we were seated as far from the trivia reader as possible (near the door). I asked to be re-seated because our previous experiences proved you can't hear. A manager assured me that we'd be able to hear - NOPE!!! Other patrons were trying to talk over the trivia and continued to get louder and louder so finally someone went to stand by in the "trivia section" and would come back to repeat the question to the table. The food, as always is good although a little pricey, but the server was fair at best. We seem to have the same guy every month and cringe each time. He's forgetful and doesn't write down the orders so something always seems to be missing.

Food continues to go downhill. Latest example is chicken tacos with unappealing chicken meat inside (bland, tasteless). Prior example is poke appetizer with very little poke inside....

Everything was fine until we paid the bill. We noticed that we were charged an extra 3 dollars on our entre orders. Seems our server failed to tell us that if we substituted a salad or other options for the standard fries there was an extra charge. This is not mentioned on the menu either. Again we had already paid when we brought this up. She apologized and brought over the manager who apologized. Thought he might offer a free drink, maybe a free dessert but no he walked away. I could name 100 restaurants that would have offered us something but not this place. Won’t be returning and just heads up if you go there and want to sub for fries it will cost extra.

Made reservations to watch the Oregon as we were in town for 49ers-Rams. Our initial waiter was great. As I mentioned you picked this place to watch the game due to all the screens. We ordered a couple appetizers and a beer to start, but next thing we know we finish our appetizers and they started cleaning our table, taking our place settings and menus. We had planned on ordering dinner and more drinks as well. Our new waiter would not return to take any additional orders, finally after nearly 30minutes of being ignored we managed to order another drink and some entree’s. Probably the worst service/place to catch a game ever. We would’ve spent more money had we not felt like they were trying to get rid of us.

Quite pricey, but the whisky options are very nice -- too expensive for a single shot but the tasting was pleasant and informative. Our waiter was initially attentive but then disappeared near the end of our meal. Another server/bus person caught on that we were looking for ours and came to our aid. Hopefully she kept that cash tip in her pocket and didn't share with her disappearing colleague.

Not my first visit, and not my last but I'll have to save my pennies up again in order to afford another visit.
