Contemporary American | San Jose, San Jose / Silicon Valley

We very much enjoy going to the Orchestria Palm Court before we attend the San Jose Opera. It is only a couple of blocks to walk, so the location is convenient. But mostly, we go because the food is wonderful, the service is excellent, and the atmosphere with the player pianos all around the room is very festive. More

Yes I recommend. But be attentive to the way your steak is cooked upon being served. I've been to this restaurant twice, and both times my steak, and that of my guest was overcooked. The servers were happy to prepare us another two steaks without issue. And they also topped up our wine glasses with at least a half-glass serving each as compensation. But, of course our lunch was delayed another 15 minutes and the restaurant had to dump two high-quality steaks as a result of their oversight. More

Brazilian Steakhouse | San Jose, San Jose / Silicon Valley

I really enjoyed this restaurant, it’s the second time we’ve been there. The service is very good, because the waitstaff is usually very attentive and friendly. The Rodízio servers came frequently and also asked us if there were preferences of what we’d like next, I really appreciated that. The prices is expensive for an everyday meal but it’s ok for every once and awhile. I wish this business had coupons sometimes, or a couples special like other Brazilian BBQ’s do. Make sure you try the cheese biscuits when they’re hot and try the Parmesan pork! I loved the filet, bacon wrapped chicken and the beef pierced with provolone. Don’t forget to go here hungry More

Never offered to refill the tea when I was there. I’ll probably try take out next time so I don’t have to deal with the staff as much. More

Irish | San Jose, San Jose / Silicon Valley

I really enjoyed my visit. Despite being a single diner, I had a nice table facing toward the bar area. Ambiance was good with a mixed buzz between sports showing on a few screens, and good music playing at a reasonable volume. Service was friendly and pretty attentive given that it was fairly busy. Wings starter wasn’t bad...crispy wings (they were seemingly deep fried with panko type coating rather than baked crispy but they tasted pretty good) but the Irish Lamb Stew was excellent. Rich gravy with very tender chunks of lamb. They give you a spoon but I would probably have enjoyed some decent bread and butter instead...or as well maybe. Really was good and hearty though. Dessert was creme brûlée which was very pleasant but not startling. All-in-all a really good experience and I’d go back in a heartbeat. If you’re looking for the Irish pub feel but with slightly elevated, still approachable, food - try it out. More

I took a friend to a birthday luncheon at Arcadia. Evidently Monday lunch is a very quiet time! Our server was great and very attentive without being overly in our way. My friend was rapturous about the tenderness of her filet mignon. My burger was fine and served on gluten free bread (though they had no actual gluten free menu). The fries were stellar. I used to come to Arcadia a lot, back in the day when they served foie gras, and it was nice to revisit the restaurant. More
