Flea Street has been a Silicon Valley favorite since 1980. The atmosphere is contemporary, sophisticated and inviting. The menu is a celebration of the rich Northern California food community: seafood is caught in the nearby Pacific, produce is carefully sourced from local farms, meat is grass-fed or pasture-raised to name just a few. Flea Street offers innovative yet approachable cuisine that showcases the very best of the season. Our bar specializes in martinis and unique cocktails using small batch liquors. A wine list features the best of California’s extraordinary vineyards with an emphasis on the local appellation--the Santa Cruz Mountains.

Use to love the place. Last visit was not so great. Appetizers tasteless; the soup was described in a delicious manner but had no taste, the crab salad had just the crab over salad with a little tasteless puree. My main dish was very good (fish). The wine recommended was at best mediocre and did not match the food at all, and they have great wine. Described as a French style pinot noir. Sorry I know burgundy wines. Having a lower alcohol content does not make it French style. It was like a low end Oregon pinot noir, a chemically produced sweet grape juice. And I like the good Oregon pinot noir (i.e. Beaux Freres). The waiter and mostly everyone was very polite but try hard to create a sophisticated atmosphere: this is a neighborhood restaurant serving farm to table healthy dishes. When a waiter wants to make it uptight he/she needs to know his/her stuff, not the case last visit. They need to get the style back to reality. I am soooo disappointed for the food and the failed wine pairing we had. Sorry for the bad review, hopefully you will learn from it.

Must not miss. Michelin level cuisine without the michelin $$ (not cheap either, but its not meant to be).

I had the steak tartare with chips which were way too salty! The squab was good but , for me too rare!

The service was exceptional, food lived up to price and the cocktails were great. An elevated dining experience in a non pretentious neighborhood feel.

Both the food and the service were excellent! Our waitress was very attentive and and went the full 9 yards to accommodate all my requests. I love the ambience of Flea Street Cafe and will definitely keep going back.

We booked this restaurant for my husband's birthday. When we sat down they greeted him with a handwritten card saying happy birthday. The service was excellent and the food was beautifully displayed and delicious. Of particular note is that I had asked them to reserve a chocolate dessert for his birthday on my note on the Open Table reservation. When dessert time came the waiter said they were unfortunately out of the chocolate dessert. I told them that I was very disappointed to hear that given that I had specifically asked for that to be part of the meal. The waiter excused himself and said he would speak to the manager. Next thing we know we had a chocolate dessert! Not sure what they did, but they deserve kudos on Open Table for really listening to customers! Great meal and we will definitely be back!

I cannot give the restaurant the high marks I had hoped to; we got in at 5:30 hoping for a quiet spot, and they gave us a corner table; unfortunately the customers at the next table were very loud. ( not really the restaurants fault, but it spoiled the evening for us; my companion is very hard of hearing, and the noise made conversation difficult) as to the food, that too was somewhat of a disappointment: interesting to the point of not something I'd want to try again, the pasta apparently was cooked with spinach or green peas, any way it came out bright green, and a very small amount of pasta compared to the cabbage on top; the chicken I had was good,
the soup we began with (sunchoke) was the best part of the meal; the ending little dessert tidbit was nice , but we would have enjoyed it more if it had come with the coffee and tea we ordered in place of dessert; the tea was ginger, and so clearly ginger, my friend could not drink it. whether we made wrong choices, or just came on a 'bad night' I'm not sure, but I've been in this place in the past where it was outstanding, which is of course why I tried it again...the Fates were against us!
