Comfort Food | Belmont, Peninsula

The food, service and ambiance was very good. Parking is easy, too. The sea bass, fried chicken and brussel sprouts were outstanding. We dine here regularly and this week was Waterdog’s 2nd anniversary. I had written a critical review of Waterdog a month ago after a disappointing meal to celebrate a birthday. We have eaten there several times since then and every meal has been excellent. I highly recommend Waterdog! More

Pizzeria Delfina is one of my favorite restaurants in Palo Alto. It is a go to for everything from special occasions to casual get together‘s with friends. Also great for a table of two or large group. Their pizza is amazing! As are many other items including the meatballs, the vegetables, the salad ragazza etc. they also have a solid wine list and some fun specialty cocktails. Typically friendly and efficient service. The back patio is the best.. highly recommend! More

I, Shalva, bought Agora in April, and since then I have been working on creating a restaurant that embodies the principle of the ancient Greek agora; a place wherre the community can come together to enjoy fresh food and delicious wine.

Since I immigrated to the U.S. from the republic of Georgia, I have wanted to bring my culture's culinary tradition tothe Bay Area, and slowly, that is becoming a reality as we start to incorporate Georgian dishes.

My son and I are in the restaurant every night, so come by and say hi! More
