Creekside Bar and Grill Ratings and Reviews
From the website for Creekside Bar and Grill we expected a nice steakhouse - found when we arrived it had just been changed to a Mexican restaurant, Playa Bonita.. Same ownership.
Flavors good, with a couple of outstnding items (cheese quesadillas appetizer, Spanish rice, guacamole), but generally overcooked. Fajita plate flavors good but steak strips wereextremely tough.
Fail for ambiance - beige, mirrored 50's steakhouse/supper club (with no renovation since) and a DJ began setting up in the middle of dinner service. Felt bad for thepeople seated at the table next to the door they were bringing their equipment in through (towers, speakers, really major set up stuff). The bar is dark, but occupies one end of the dining room.
I have been going here for about 40 years . Food and service are great,one of the rare places in SiliconValley that you can talk comfortably to your dining companions. Thereis a bar area but not a rowdy one and it can be closed off from dining area if needed. Food is excellent and it's prepared the way you like it great steaks, fish, and even some homestyle cooking favorite.
My wife and I tried to eat here one evening. We were unable to stay as the place throws out the wrong vibe for us. The menus were simple, yet way over priced. We sat for 15 min waiting for anyone to take a drink order or food order. We ended up leaving as the place gave us the creeps. They didn't seem busy, but seemed to have regulars the staff was busy keeping happy.
With a makeover, and a little attention to the menus this place could be good.
We had our Father's Day Dinner at Creekside Bar & Grill. We were greeted by Tony, and he had our table ready for us. The menu had selections to please everyone, and I chose the pork chops. They were prepared to perfection, and were tasty and tender. I plan to recommend this restaurant to all my friends.
The service was excellent, but the food was like upscale diner food-- flavors and textures were not very distinct, especially for the prices. Voices carry in the restaurant, so though we were in a booth, conversations on both sides made it feel like we were all at the same table. Agree with other reviewers that the decor could use updating!
Very old place. Many years ago had great reputation but the neighborhood has changed. Very loud band was setting up and drummer was practicing as we were finishing dinner. After a large party of 20 left we were the only diners. It is now a busy bar with large dance floor. It is not a place to go out to and enjoy dinner.
We went to Creekside on Thanksgiving, mainly because they were one of the few restaurants still showing open reservations (first clue). The menu looked great and everything sounded fantastic, although the prices were a bit high, if the food was good then it would be worth it. I ordered the house Prime Rib special. The salad came swimming in dressing with deep fried croutons, my prime rib had rainbow hues, the veggies tasted like they had been frozen and the "garlickey" mashed potatoes were flavored with garlic powder, it was so horrendous. I cut off a ton of fat, and spit out several large chunks and the manager still only discounted it 50%, saying I "ate" half of it, really bad customer service.
Want to go back and try something else. My wife had the seafood pasta, but she thought the sauce was more appropriate for a meat-type pasta dish then a seafood-type pasta dish. My hamburger was really good, and the clam chowder was at least a 4/5. The reason for only 3/5 on food is that my wife did not like hers (2 to 2.5/5) and I liked mine (4/5), while we both liked the claim chowder (3.5/5 & 4/5). Overall Solid, and will go back again. Would have given it a 3.5/5, but the scoring does not allow for it. It is also a bit noisy, and if your quite you can nearly hear the people across the restaurant because of the acoustics.
We had a reservation for 6:30 and waited for about 15 minutes for someone to sit us. No one came. They were just finishing up a banquet of some sorts and there were very few tables ready to sit at. I cannot review the food because we did not sit down to eat.
My wife's B-day and her mother's are a week apart. As my wife planned a surprise party for her mother (at Creekside), I planned for some of her freinds to crash the party for a DOUBLE surprise. With the help of Creekside staff and management it came off perfectly! With chearful surprises all around. Creekside met my highest hopes and expectations. Great food, Wonderful service. All around a fantastic evening! Many thanks Creekside!
I had a fine dining experience here, me and my boo actually went on Valentines Day, its was pretty low key, guess we just beat the rush. They had a great valentines day special which included calimari, ny steak and lobster, champagne, desert, and soup or salad. Only problem I had was our waitress wasn't the best, completely unenthused and impatient, kind of rushing us. It was the latina bigger chick. Hopefully she's in a better mood when you go. Nonetheless, the steak and lobster tail was great. The soup and rice pilaf were kind of bland. Good romantic scene, general foods could use some help.
On Thanksgiving, my family ordered lamb chop, salmon, or turkey dinner plates. The lamb chop and salmon plates came with plain vegetables. The lamb chops looked beautiful and were cooked perfectly to each of our requests although there was some kind of chemical taste on the outside that maybe came from a glaze or the gas used for the flame. The turkey plate was ugly- it looked like someone tore off pieces of the turkey, piled it on with gravey with a goup of mashed sweet potatoes on the side. However, Grandma said that her turkey dinner tasted good. To get anything besides the pumpkin pie (we don't like) for Thanksgiving desert you have to pay for it.
The outside of the building is not very appealing, the inside is not fancy but nice enough.
My family and I had Thanksgiving dinner there. The service was very good. There were
2 small children in the party and they were accommodated nicely.
Dinner was very tasty, everyone was happy with their meal.
Wednesday 7:30pm we were the only people in the restaurant. Decor hasn't changed since the 80's. Garlic bread was nothing more than the normal table bread with garlic powder and a flash broiler applied, zero flavor. Salads were drenched in dressing to the point of being unfit to eat. I don't think they use salt and pepper when they prepare any meats. Free kareoke in the bar draws some colorful characters. Entire establishment could use a visit from Resturant Impossible!!
