I have never understood why there is so much sad interpretation of Italian food throughout the Bay Area- and so we were very pleased to find Osteria. My Dad has been living overseas in Taiwan for awhile and wanted some good quality Italian food - the gnocchi and tiramisu did not disappoint- he polished off his entire plate. Angelhair, and fettucine fruta del mar were all excellent. Tortellini pancetta was good, wine and espresso solid. Service was on point without lurking and impeccably patient even as we had to wait a bit for a late dinner companion. Definitely will return. More

Nice ambiance and friendly service. I got to taste many items as we were a 7 people group. We tried hand made pot stickers, calamari, pork belly quesadilla, and Moo-Shu for appetizers. They were all great. Teriyaki Salmon and Mongolian Beef were my favorites from the main course. Peking Duck was good as well. I didn’t like the crab as much as it was oily. Finding parking was a pain. I would recommend there at least 10 minutes early to find parking. More

I have been going to Reposado since they opened years ago. It's still good. Service is great. Love the guacamole and chips. Street tacos are good. Don't like the tamales - they are not traditional and a bit dry. Could use better masa. But the reason to go - the Passionfruit Margaritas are the BEST in the Bay area. They are not on the cocktail menu, but as long as they have the passionfruit puree, the bartenders (who are really talented!) will make them. If you don't like them too sweet, tell your waiter to make it "heavy on the passionfruit, not too sweet". It's hard to drink just one...or just two:) More

Overall a good experience. They seemed a little short staffed but the waitress was attentive once we ordered. We tried both the impossible burger and the impossible burger sliders. While both were tasty, we enjoyed the sliders better because of the crispiness in the patty. I think the burgers could benefit with a different bun. The noise level was uncomfortably loud, but it wasn't because of any particular table or busyness. More

Dan Gordon’s brings the same spirit as the previous Gordon Biersch did at the same location. However, I find the food selections to be more creative than GB had. This is mostly demonstrated in the appetizer menu. It does seem to get updated often. This means you have a reason for a return visit! The Beer obviously is the best around, and the BBQ meats are top notch. I had the half rack of ribs and was not disappointed! More

My husband and I have gone to Caffe Riace for years and we were delighted to bring friends for their first time! Everything was as wonderful as we have come to expect (though I was a bit concerned based on some of the recent reviews). The only thing that seemed strange was that several of the items on the menu were not available. My girlfriend had to try three different orders to get one that the chef had available. It left her thinking that Caffe Riace was maybe winding down, which would be a terrible disappointment to us! Thanks you for giving us such a nice evening! More

American | Palo Alto, Peninsula

“Tuts Bakery & Café” was established in 2016, by a group of coffee and bakery lovers in downtown Palo Alto, California with the idea that “good coffee” starts a great day. Taking on this philosophy, we have enjoyed good coffee from passionate roasters. The challenge was to find something light, fresh, and tasty to eat with a very good cup of coffee. We took it upon ourselves to explore this further, we wanted to combine this great coffee with great food, evolving the idea with our in-house bakery. Our Vision at Tuts is to define food & coffee in a new way, combining pleasure with quality.

Our menu is simple and dynamic with influence taken from different cuisines. Using local, fresh ingredients, when possible, complimented by a fresh, welcoming, design, with an emphasis on transparency. Guests should feel like they are at home or a friends place, where they can go any time of the day to enjoy great coffee or food, or buy freshly baked bread.More
