About Faultline Brewing Company
Whether you want to sit on our patio with an ice cold beer, have some great appetizers while watching your favorite sporting event, take your new client out to lunch with a lakeside view, or enjoy a night out with family & friends for a spectacular dinner, Faultline Brewing Company is what you are looking for. Our menu has a broad range of choices from traditional “comfort food” to unique dishes that tantalize the senses.
The beers we brew are traditional, with absolutely no candy, fruit or vegetable flavorings. Our brewer, Peter Catizone, has created a beer menu that offers something for every palate, from the black as coal Irish-style Stout to our light & refreshing Kolsch, a gold medal winner at the California State Fair. We even have a “cask conditioned" ale which is served at cellar temperature from a hand pump for a more pronounced flavor.

Faultline Brewing Company Ratings and Reviews
We love Faultline! Conscious Capitalism Bay Area chapter had a group event here in November (and hope to have more), and the other night the Board committee for the South Bay met for dinner and a little annual planning. Service is always exceptional, great beer and food, and they seated us in a corner so it was nice and quiet.
Left special comments and told hostess twice we were celebrating 2 promotions and I thought something could be done but nothing happened. VERY underwhelmed by the menu in the dining room. If I knew the choices were that limited, we would have stayed at the bar.
Had a brief delay in service and the manager was ALL OVER IT! Made it right, personally waited on us and comped a few drinks for the delay. She came back several times to be sure we were happy and well taken care of. EXCELLENT managerial skills. I would return again and again because of her attention.
This place was amazing. I would definitely recommend the beer flight. All of their food dishes that we tried were amazing. The service was great! All staff were so attentive and nice. It was much more upscale than we were anticipating, but the price was still great as well. I definitely plan on going back with all of my friends!
Our server was very slow to show up at the table or even acknowledge our presence. We ordered the bagel bites and cheese dip appetizer which was delivered as thin cheese soup and very few bagel pieces, and took an exceptionally long time to get to the table. We had also ordered a flight of beer, which was delivered alongside the appetizer. The entre came put fairly quickly and the presentation was good. The meal itself was not. I had ordered the bbq brisket sandwich, which was surprisingly greasy. It was clearly not made that day. In order to hold the sandwich, I had to use a napkin to dry up the outside of the bread. The sandwich was barely edible. It is evident that the food is not the draw to this restaurant. The biggest disappointment was the beer. Of the ten beers on the flight, three were passable. The beer styles were mostly traditional, but the ones that were an attempt at originality were poorly executed. In my opinion, the dinner menu needs to be reworked significantly. If you are going to have a limited menu, it should be good quality. As a brewery, the brewmaster should look for other work.
We were visiting from out of state and found this for Octoberfest. Great German sausage. Our server had a very large party and several other tables, so he was slow to greet us and our food arrived before my husband's beer did. A little disappointed! Once the big table left he became more attentive, but by this time we were finished with our meal and ready to leave.
Food was good. The spatzel that my partner ordered was yummy and I was pretty jealous of his food. I got a grilled cheese with tomato soup. I think I’m just not used to grilled cheeses that deviate from the norm. It used Havarti which was great! But it had a really tart and tangy apple mustard that I wasn’t the biggest fan of. Also, I’m used to creamier tomato soups and this one wasn’t that. But these are my personal preferences - the food was still good outside of those. It was pretty quiet and sparse in the main dining room even though it was Saturday night. I guess people usually come here for lunch since it’s in the business district of Santa Clara. The beer sampler was really nice. Both my partner and I enjoyed it. We also liked the pretzel bread with beer cheese fondue and I wished I knew the recipe for it. It was very yummy. I think overall that their Oktoberfest special they have going on now is really good food. I’m not sure what they have there in place usually.
Faultline featured an average menu with reasonable prices. The noise level was a bit too much for my taste, as building/room acoustics provided way too much interference from my ability to listen to normal table side conversation. It even made it difficult to hear our server. Please note the time of our reservation was at peak service. Parking can be difficult as well.
This restaurant is good for after work with co-worker pals. However, the food was just so-so. Not bad, just not great. Our table had the ribs - kind of fatty and mushy, sauce good. Someone had the 1/2 chicken it it was kind of "wet" looking. She said the flavor was fine, but it was just chicken. Someone else had French Dip and he said it was good. Lastly, one person had the sausage appetizer; she said not bad, but wasn't overly impressed. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. Would I go there again, yes. Would I go out-of-my-way to go back, probably not.
Very comfortable place, well laid out with a great bar area and cozy seated dining area. Nice view of the pond, ducks etc from the table where we were seated. The food was OK - the burgers were a little dry, as were the ribs. The calamari appetizer was great - definitely will order again.
maaaaaaaaaaaan okay so just walking thru the parking lot i knew this was guna be my new saturday night spot! the smells were AMAZING! so theres a full bar in this restaurant and its classy! so much good stuff to say idk where to start ok the food omg so the faultline burger is amazing! the menu is kind of expensive so we decided to yknow go a lil cheaper and get the burger the first time there just to see if its worth getting a 31$ steak next time and YES it is worth it! they put so much care into the food you can taste it! the view out back is awesome theres a duck pond and an area to take a stroll after yur meal. the beer flight!... so good! great beers! i didnt get to visit the bar but you can tell they have a good selection just from the beer flight! everything was just so great i dont understand why this place doesnt get more run! i give it a solid 5 stars! the staff all pitch in to make it a great experience we even got a visit from one of the cooks! i will be spending a lot of $ here in the future, if youre on the fence about giving this place a shot i hope my review tilts you over the fence and you go because you will not be disappointed! open saturdays 5pm-10pm we went at about 6pm and there was maybe a dozen people in there so if your hungry and want to visit a place youre guna keep going back to try the fault line brewery it truly is a hidden gem in the sunnyvale/santa clara area!
This is our new go to place for business lunches. The service is outstanding. The food is very tasty no matter what the dish. Kudos to the chefs! TV's everywhere if you want to catch a sporting event... but they are not overly large. So if you want to have conversation you can still hear the people at your table. They are very efficient at taking orders and serving you. Can't say enough about this place. Salads are wonderful!
This was our first time to Faultline Brewing Company. Thai chicken wings appetizer was delicious. All the entrees were delicious. We like that there is a unique variety of items on the menu to choose from. :D
This place is way above BJ's Brewhouse!
We will be back.
The special occasion was a good friends birthday. I wanted to go somewhere where we could talk and enjoy good food. I had the crab cake sandwich - absolutely delicious! He had the fish and chips which were made perfectly. The view from the window seats made us feel like we were at a country club. I would recommend this for a special lunch, a business lunch and definitely to impress someone. The beer is made there and I tried the hefeweizen which was perfect with the crab.
