Anna is a very good server, the food is so-so.A lot of better tasting food out there for the price. Really its just santana row . Are we going back to eat again? Probably not. The aged steak and pork chop are mediocres.

Food was great! Husband had filet mignon and I had scallops. Truffle fries and Brussel sprouts on the side. Scallops were super tasty but just a bit chewy.

Ambiance is cozy but still upscale. Very warm and inviting.

At first it took a while to get any service as our server was very clearly busy with a lot of guests in her section. But once we were helped she was friendly, quick, and helpful. Manager stopped by to wish us a happy anniversary and was personable, funny and kind.

Overall great experience!

waited 10 minutes to have my order taken, 15 minutes for my drink, sat with an empty salad plate in front of me for another 10 minutes before it was cleared. I often enjoy dining alone, and it's rare I need extended time between courses to...chat with myself? Food was good, staff warm & friendly - just really slow.

Service was amazing.
But the 14oz Boneless Ribeye for its price was extremely underwhelming and disappointing. It looked like a thin hamburger patty. I could probably get the same steak at Sizzler, Denny’s, and Chilli’s. There wasn’t beautiful marbling, but whole unedible pieces of fat that needed to be cut off. We will not return.

I always have such high hopes when I come here. The decor is so nice and inviting. This time I visited after having been away for almost two years and I had a very underwhelming mediocre time. The restaurant seemed to be a bit understaffed so I try to be understanding but my rare steak first came out medium and when I sent it back they brought me a blue steak. Ok fine, I’ll just eat it. The steak was mediocre at best. I also noticed they poured me the wrong wine and charged me for the wrong one as well which was just a few dollars more than what I had ordered. On top of it all, they took away my fries and didn’t bring them back in a box which I requested! There was still half the order left ! I don’t know why I have high hopes for this place but after the fourth or fifth let down, I won’t be coming back.

A perfect location for a special occasion. It’s pricey. We spent our anniversary there and loved it. The steaks were prime and cooked perfectly medium rare. The bone marrow appetizer we shared (fought over) was excellent. I’d take a pass on the broccolini. It was just ok. The sidecar cocktail was delightful. Hats off to the bar tender.

All of the food was good except the steak - aged Prime Rib and small filet mignon. Those were probably the worst I had from a steak house. Ive been here before, a few years back, and the steaks were good then. I dont know what happened - maybe its the pandemic. But I wont go here again. Not to say I didnt enjoy - I did. And the rest of the food was good. But I spent $400 on two people, and had lousy steaks. For that money, they have to have great steaks...

Good, not great, food.
My steak was overcooked to medium well when I actually ordered a steak blue.
They did correct the error but we had to flag down another server who had to locate our waiter...
Service was good. not outstanding, considering we were one group of only a few diners in the restaurant.
All in all, only OK but a little overpriced and disappointing considering everything.
Maybe it was just a bad day.... but not sure if I would go out of my way to recommend it.

We ordered below and rating for each (not including sides and drinks):
Lobster bisque - just ok, was only luke warm 1/5
Seared Tuna - not good, 5 very thin slices 1/5
Dry Aged ribeye - was good and tender but was thin 4/5
Tomahawk - just okay, not too much flavor 3/5
Pudding - was good 4/5
Baked Alaska - was okay 3/5
Overall, not something I would be craving to come back for. Steaks we make at home tastes better. We also noted in reservation that we’re celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary but no mention of it at all or complimentary dessert. Bill was around $450 incl tip and didn’t feel like it was worth it.

Ambiance & service was top notch. Food/meal was middle of the road. Salmon was fabulous. Chicken tasty. BUT our filet mignon (2) were not melt in your mouth high quality. As if the cuts of meat were not filet. Cooked as ordered 1-rare 1-medium. We dined in past at the Menlo Park location and that was always good. For the price our steak should have been better. Other than that all good.
