Poor service, had to call for a waiter. The steak was called "grass fed." My partner and I agreed that the steer must have eaten tough grass. It was too chewy. The local persons who got a chance to sing may have been alright, but the man with the music played it so loud that you could not hear the singers. Also, we had to yell at each other to try to talk!
Reservation weren't needed since there was only one table occupied. By the time we left an hour and a half later only one table was occupied. Service was non-existent. When finally getting the server's attention he wanted to know if we wanted "to-go boxes." All we wanted was bread to go with our salad. He brought out sliced, white bread that had been toasted (as in a toaster). Given a big empty dining area, it was really strange not to be able to get the server's attention. How very strange. New very limited menu on card stock inside a plastic encased carrier.
When I said I had made a reservation, no one checked the computer. I'm doubting I'll get Open Table points for this reservation.
This is our second year booking on Father's Day. It's beautiful, quiet, has a fantastic view of the bay and great parking, and it's surrounded by Tennis and Swimming. This may become a tradition. We love it here!
We went on a very slow night and yet the service was extremely slow. The food was O.K. but nothing to write home about.
There was a family with 2 children there and the parents didn't care about keeping the noise level reasonable and let them scream when they wanted to. We likely wouldn't go back. :-(
This is a restaurant in a tennis club ... was told there are new owners hope they upgrade the menu and service
The restaurant is a bit difficult to locate, but my 2 friends and I arrived around noon. We sat at one of two outdoor tables. There were very few other customers, both inside and outside. Two of us ordered the daily specials, salmon, and one ordered a hamburger.
No waiter asked if we wanted drinks while we waited for our orders and no bread was brought to the table. There was silverware for one person and one napkin on the table. I got the attention of a waiter and order a glass of wine. About 5 minutes later he returned and told me he had forgotten the type of wine I had ordered. When our food arrived, there still were not enough utensils and only one napkin for the 3 of us. After lunch, we had to go inside to get the check.
Wow! In March, I had such an outstanding lunch that I wrote a 5 star review & scheduled another brunch w/ 4 adult friends and 2 kids. This time it bordered on disaster. The bartender apparently was missing, the waitperson finally made our drinks; and the restaurant seemed totally understaffed from kitchen to serving staff. Having a reservation and ordering our food at 11:45 AM, the waitperson came back around 12:10 to let us know that they were already sold-out of the vegetarian burger. When the food finally came, even the pasta special of the day was very mediocore at best; as was the rest of the food. We ordered a second round of drinks which took forever.
The menu has something for everyone, and we sampled quite a few dishes with happy results. They may have the best happy hour choices in the area!
Easter brunch was beyond expectations
I brought friends for the first time because Nourish is a favorite of mine.
A few days ago I met a friend there for lunch. She had traveled from NY to family in Palo Alto then the drive to Nourish. I was coming from the north. Obviously we had no living room close enough to girlfriend in for a few hours after lunch. Nourish, in that most gracious style of theirs, let us stay several hours into the afternoon. We enjoyed that time of uninterrupted talking and being together. Tim, our waiter, checked on us now and then yet seemed to know when to stop by and when to leave us alone. My friend and I enjoyed the place, the view, the comfort so very much. And to top it off the food is ahhhhh-mazing, just ONE-derful.
I was taking a friend and her child for a birthday lunch and arrived at the restaurant, with no one at the matire d' station. were Club members said someone would be there shortly. Someone finally came and I commented that I hoped the service would be better than the previous time. The man looked at us and apologized, stating that the restaurant had undegone a change in management and many people had left or dropped their responsibilities. He suggested that we go eat somewhere else, To confirm, I asked if he had suggested we dine elsewhere and he said yes. A call the day before would have been nice, to save the drive across the Bridge.
The waitstaff was spot on. The water view great. Downsides: it's part of a condo or apartment complex, residents' kids were playing very loudly unsupervised in a sitting area within the dining room. They were asked to tone it down, then asked to leave. We heard a former chef from Postrio was chef there, and were so excited to try the food. Ouch. We both had the jambalaya with fish on top and a salad. I think they must have used Uncle Ben's instant rice. Awful! I found 8 tiny cubes of flavorless sausage in the tomato sauce. As far as I could tell it was almost unspiced. We needed and got gluten free, and we were grateful, plus perfect asparagus (free!)but plopping a hunk of unseasoned fish on the rice mix made for the most uninspired food.
Nice location, good food, terrible service
Such a joy to see our club so packed and full of Friday Night Fun. Everyone was so excited about the fabulous generous helpings of prime rib and all the trimmings. And the service was attentive and timely. A great Friday Night tradition has returned. I look forward to more comfortable

I put yes on recommendations because I need more visits to decide. It was a prime rib dinner and they had icluded salmon. Salmon was not available and substituted with halibut. Although a limited menu, still the service at the food table was one person. The table service for drinks and checks was extremely slow. We received our drinks past the half way mark of our meal. It needs more efficient management. I shall try it once more on an evening with their full menu. My wife goes there with her grandson and thinks that it is better at lunch when one can also appreciate the view.
Terrible service, mediocre meal.
Menu was pretty limited, food was less than average. Certainly will not go back there.
enjoyed the food and dancing; however, the floor could be better. We had very tired legs after dancing.
