Charming building with industrial features. Excellent food and drinks. We had a large party and did not feel we had to wait for anything. Quick service and kind staff.
Great food like always and all workers are very nice
The food was good but the restaurant is a bit run down. The tables and chairs are very worn, most of the chairs were torn. Nothing special a bit pricey for the style of the restaurant. Looks Nothing like the pictures on open table.
Great place to eat. Good food and wonderful service!
Food was not great. Served stale hard bread. Greens in salad were turning brown. They were out of crab cake at 4:30pm for dinner. Waitress was very nice.
Went for 1/2 off wine and were charged full price.
Best food, customer service, and caring staff ever!!!
Prime location and the food was good I like a little more seasoning but overall it was very nice.
Excellent service. They were very accommodating to our schedule when we came in early. It was much appreciated. And the food was great!
We love the crab cakes entree- the best we've found!
Inexpensive. Great service. Go for cocktails. Food was unfortunately not very good.
But we came with a large group and the servers kept our drinks flowing.
Not half bad. Two stories, overlooking Second Street trolley. Almost no one there on Sunday evening. Full bar, and can’t go wrong with the food quality. I’d try it again.
Great place and great location for dining or happy hour. The got huge varieties of beer and cocktails
Love the feel of the Loft...food was good...would for sure go again only downfall was service on getting our food was slow.
Went for mothers day my son and i ordered the filet. My husband had the ahi. Ours was fabulous. My husbands ahi was over cooked and tough, but cold? Since the restaurant was mostly empty (we went early) it should have been perfect! Ahi is a 50/50 experience. So this time not good!
The waitress was exceptional. Hostess friendly! It was clean and everythin else was perfect!
Great place for meeting with friends.
Relatively to other restaurant in the area - pretty quiet ambient noise.
2nd floor has nice table for a more romantic / couples dinner.
Everyone had something different and it was all great. We sat in the patio area for dinner and it was very nice. Outdoor dining all shaded and no insects as there is netting.
Great food, quick service and free birthday cheesecake. Much mahalo.
The kitchen was very slow! I also thought the prices were very high for the quality of the food. The server tried to make up for it by comping some beverages which we appreciated.
Everything was fantastic, everybody was so friendly. The food was fantastic
Great place for a delicious meal and excellent value. Our experiences with the attentive and courteous staff have been delightful. We plan to return whenever a performance in one of the nearby venues draws us to an evening in San Jose.
The guard outside didn't recognize opentable or my booking. Nobody was there to go to for us. It ruined my date. Very bad exeprience. Restaurants dont even recognize any booking.
It did not feel like this place was supposed to be a restaurant. The tables were cramped and they randomly placed about the area. I sat down so close the party next to me I heard their entire conversation it was uncomfortable.
Made a reservation for our anniversary Was a little surprised at the small dining space. It was a casual and friendly atmosphere our waitress was reat and the food was delicious- generous potions. I would go back when the weather is warmer and checkout the rooftop dining with some friends.
Perfect in all respects, food, service and was easy to make reservations for. They did a great job on Valentines Day, all their efforts paid off!
We had a great lunch, which came extremely quickly. Our waiter was quite knowledgeable . My chinese chicken salad was fantastic.
Really good food and good service. Nice atmosphere and decor overall. Would absolutely go again.
First time at Loft. Last night I paid $9 for a "wedge salad". It was the worst I have ever had at any restaurant in my life. How a place could fail at a wedge salad was mind blowing. It was a beautiful cut of iceburg that was almost completely void of blue cheese and bacon, I mean there was not one actual piece of bacon. It was almost like they were out of bacon and just shook an empty container over the salad and hoped some crumbs would fall out. I wish I had taken a picture so you could really see how sad it was. It didn't occur to me at the time. Very disappointed last night. Doubt I'll be back.
Nine of us had dinner/drinks here, for our son’s 27th birthday. Very good food/service/value. Would definitely return.
Service was excellent. We went early so hard to say what the noise level and service would be like if it was crowded. Food was tasty but the portions were very small and therefore overpriced. Markup on wine was staggering (we learned later after finding the same bottle at BevMo).
I had reservations and they seated us outside, upstairs in a covered porch area. It was Feb. 2nd and raining. Actually it was pouring, so it was very cold and windy with water all over the floor. When we asked to be moved to another table inside we were told that all the empty tables inside where for reservations. Had we not needed to eat quickly to get to a Sharks game, we would have left. When we finished our meal, there were still empty tables inside. With amazing restaurants in San Jose, we will not ever be returning to this place.
The food was good overall: I highly recommend the carnitas tacos appetizer! Cocktails were delicious, but a bit small.
The Friday night we went, there seemed to be a large party upstairs, and there was only one server downstairs for over 7 tables, one being a larger group. I felt for her; it was busy, she was doing her best, but our service definitely suffered. Particularly when one of the dishes’ fries were ice cold, and it took until we were nearly done with our meals for our server to be informed and to get a fresh batch to us. I saw the host staff messing around on their phone and chatting with people they knew, but not bothering to help their team, even when we were trying to get someone’s attention.
Food was excellent and the staff were great! I'd go back again anytime.
We were there on a date night. Dinner was nice, and their drinks are good. I am not a big drinker, but they don't water down their mixed drinks which is nice. We enjoyed the overall ambiance and experience.
This is a great place for a casual dinner before a show. We had tickets to the SJ Improv so it couldn't have worked out better. Our server was the highlight of our dinner as she was friendly, authentic, and honest. I had the lamb shank but I wasn't crazy about the gravy like sauce. They have an ecclectic menu and great drinks with an ambiance that is lively and fun. I would recommend the Loft for anyone looking for a great complement to a SJ Downtown outing or a night out. You won't be disappointed.
Great choices of food. Service can be better if the server check back what is missing or required. Absolutely is a good place to meet up and great happy hour too
New years eve was chaotic. Food & drinks were substandard and overpriced. Waiters seemed impatient and unhelpful. Won't come back.
We love this place! I love their mozzarella, tomato and pistachio salad as well as their Chicken Picatta!!
We booked a reservation on open table looked at your menu and thought it was very good but to our surprise when we were seated you had a limited New Years menu and prices were higher you should have posted something on your website, my wife was very disappointed she had see something on your regular menu which was not on your limited menu.
We ate at the Loft twice in the last two weeks. The first time (12/23) they were having a special event upstairs, so the service was a bit slow in the downstairs area. The second time (12/30) we sat at a nice table adjacent to the window upstairs, where it was very quiet. Our server, Nicole, took great care of us, making sure that we enjoyed our meal and our wine. The food is reasonably priced for downtown, and there seem to be choices to please everyone. The salads are large enough to split as a starter. We enjoyed the salmon and the skewered shrimp, both served with nicely cooked veggies. The Loft will be our new "go-to" when we are in downtown San Jose.
