American | San Carlos, Peninsula

We had the best outing at Town. The service was impeccable, the food was absolutely delicious. The price was a bit high, but what I would expect from such a fantastic establishment. It won't stop us from saving a little to have a treat! Definitely plan to return. In fact, this might be our new anniversary go-to. Thank you Town! More

Japanese | San Carlos, Peninsula

Seiya is a small, elegant innovative sushi bistro. We very much enjoyed its low-key, relaxing elegance, subdued lighting, very friendly, helpful and attentive service, excellent sake offerings, and, above all, its innovative, high quality sushi and sashimi offerings. Seiya has some of the run-of-the-mill sushi items one expects, but they also offer some wonderfully innovative items. We had an excellent (I'm sorry, I don't recall the name of the fish) sushi for which the chef had concocted a special little gel cube of flavor placed on top. Our server told us to be sure not to put soy sauce on it, as the little cube would be all the flavoring needed. And right she was! The flavors were a perfect foil for the fresh, fresh fish, (straight from the commercial fish market in Japan, we were told). I ordered a delightfully crunchy sushi of spicy tuna rolled up instead of nori, in blanched leek. Superb! We shared an iron pot of crispy rice topped with a smoky grilled salmon which, in turn, was topped in slices of avocado. SO, so good! So good, in fact, that as I enjoyed the first bites, I had to tell my tablemate,"I sort of can't hear what you're saying right now, because this is so delicious!" We rounded out our meal with some red bean, strawberry, and green tea mochi, and left on a cloud of bliss. Sorry if I seem to be laying it on a little thick, but our experience was pretty much perfect. FYI: Even though this is a pretty small place, they do have a curtained private room/table which I believe we were told, seats 8. Other than that, there are 3 or 4 regular tables and two high bistro tables, and a couple of tables out front for sidewalk dining. Itadakimasu, Seiya! More

We had a lovely lunch and the food was excellent. Service was very good - we had attentive and gracious servers. The only thing that could have been improved was the length of time it took to get our entrees. There was an extremely long wait between our appetizers and entrees. Granted, we were a table of 7, but the restaurant didn’t have many other patrons that day. I don’t know if there was something going on in the kitchen. But the atmosphere, the food, and the servers were all so good that this one little demerit didn’t diminish the great lunch. More

Wine Bar | San Carlos, Peninsula

Had a nice time for my first visit. The restaurant is decorated beautifully and the service was outstanding. I have to admit not a large crowd for a Monday night but we benefited from that. The food was good and the wine selection was outstanding. Very reasonable on price and servings were plentiful. Downtown San Carlos where lots of competition is located....worth giving it a try. Enjoyed it.... thank you. More
