Quattro features Northern Italian seasonal and light cuisine with a fresh Cal-Italian twist at breakfast and lunch.

Quattro is the restaurant at the Silicon Valley Four Seasons Hotel off of Highway 101. Close to VC firms, Quattro is busier serving business dinners on weeknights than it is serving friends and couples on weekends. We came for our anniversary and the wait staff were excited. We heard “Happy Anniversary” from nearly everyone.

Drinks were great, food was mostly great, but so pricey. Also, the high ceiling architecture and sandstone bricks make me feel like I’m at Stanford. Not quite what I’m looking for on date night.

There are nice fire pits outside for the cocktail crowd. We’ll definitely check those out next time.

Overall, we had a wonderful experience. When I made my lunch reservation online, I mentioned that my wife and I were going to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. This Four Seasons hotel was where we stayed on our wedding night. The staff remembered our special occasion and to our pleasant surprise, went above and beyond with their service. When we received our menus, we realized it was customized with a congratulatory message on top addressed to us specifically. The servers kept giving us warm anniversary wishes. Lastly, they offered a complimentary dessert with a "Happy 10th Anniversary" message on the plate. It was very special. My only critique, which is minor compared to the positives, is that the spaghetti plate we received was too peppery. The dish would've tasted perfect with less pepper in it. That's it. Everything else was great!

This restaurant is pricey, but in my opinion well worth it.

What we drank: Beefeater Martini, various wines and coffee.

What we ate: funghi trifolati, bucatini nero alle vongole, bone-in piedmontese ribeye 16oz, on the shell lobster tail, s'more for me. All were superb. The steak was cooked exactly to my specifications. The cut per se and the method of cooking make for a dramatically succulent flavor and texture.

The service was impeccable. Our server knew the details of every menu item. He offered suggestions that were quite helpful. We were never rushed and were at the table for more than two hours.

I hosted a major political figure and two of his team. I chose Quattro because of the proximity to the freeway and the quality of the luncheon menu. Two of us started with gazpacho, which was excellent. We all had different entrees, and everyone seemed to enjoy them. I had my usual, off-the-menu Cobb salad. It was excellent. The service was great. Becca is always attentive.

I dine at Quattro many times and I never been disappointed. I shared 2 dishes with my colleague and I was extremely please to see that they divided the dishes in advance for both of us what it is very nice.
The service is outstanding.
I highly recommended this place for any occasion; business, romantic diner near fire place, or family diner if you are willing to accept the high price, but it is worth it!

As I often do, I took a business colleague to Quattro for lunch. We ate outside, which was very pleasant. We both order the gazpacho to start and ordered a Cobb salad (off the menu). Both were excellent. Our server, whom I have had many times, was very attentive and excellent. All in all, another excellent business luncheon.

Absolutely absurdly expensive. For example, wines by the glass at prices in the $30 to $60 range. I asked the waitress if they had any red wines at $12 or under for a glass, and she apologized and said no. So we ordered water. The water was $7.50 a bottle, one for each of the two of us. So, $15.00 for water!! I am not a cheapskate and I can afford such prices, but that doesn't mean that I enjoy being ripped off. The value just simply doesn't correspond to the prices. Not returning anytime soon.

Always a reliable place to take clients. Service is excellent and even unhealthy is served with smaller portions. Salads are always inventive. No one ever turns down my invitation for lunch at Quattro. Also breakfast is very good with a wide selection.

Quattro serves nice food in a pleasant setting, though it is a bit too noisy. Unfortunately, the experience was spoiled by overbilling at the end. This might be regarded as a minor mistake, but this the second time in a row where our credit cards were overcharged. Once is a careless mistake. It happens, rarely. Twice seems a very odd coincidence. Another regrettable point is the use of iPad apps for the wine list. This doesn't work very well. And the prices for wine by the glass show that the market in Palo Alto will bear any abuse.

Quattro is one of my favorite place to have a lunch with friends and children but unfortunately the kitchen on Sunday (probably) was awful. We had a burgers with raw egg whites, soggy buns and flat tasted meat... What a shame...
Will never go there on Sunday....
But the service is always good!

We have been here more than a dozen times and this time the food was really bad. Something has changed over the years. The $70+ steak came out cold and “bitter”. The fish was bland and they ran out of Branzino and changed it to Seabass. For the price, the steak needs to be perfect but they don’t know how to cook the steak; almost feels like they use Sous-vide method to keep it tender and then char it carelessly.

Also the wine is twice as expensive as other high end local downtown Palo Alto restaurants. i.e. Chateau Montelena

Mostly likely we will not go back for dinner again as you have much better choices in Down Town Palo Alto. For lunch, the shrimp is delicious and they have wonderful burgers and power lunches (soup, entree and dessert). Again the butcher steak during lunch is also nothing special.

Dining at Quattro was suppose to be a very nice evening out. For reasons unknown our waiter didn't greet us for over ten minutes, never brought our water, a new waiter arrived and took our drink order finally our original waiter arrived to take our drink order...the service was off even though the restaurant wasn't particularly busy. The food was just OK. It was a surprising bust for dinner. I will say our cocktails were very good. I would repeat for meeting friends for drinks.

Prices are higher than ever, as the food quality has declined, which means it is WAY overpriced for what it is. Zola's is 1,000% better although tough(er) to get into. Good liquor and wine selection. Service was inattentive at best, bad if I were being honest. All in all, not what I had come to expect.

I had not been to Quattro for several years, and my wife wanted to try it for Father's Day.
The food was very good, but everything else was, how do I say this - quirky.
It was 105 F when we arrived for our 6:30 reservations and the gas fireplace was going full blast.
We were taken to a two person both, and we simply did not fit. We said that it was not acceptable, and they found another table for us. The people seated next to us were seated next to the large window - there was an outdoor seating area with heating lamps going full bore. The people next to the window said that it was too hot, so after failing to find new seats for them, someone went out and turned off the heaters. Instead of a wait person taking our drink orders, there was an iPad, but it didn't have simple cocktails so I had to drag someone over to take our order; then wait 10 minutes for water. Everything after that was OK, except for the people sitting at the table across from us. After someone at the table complained, they finally brought the wine order about the time that desert was being served. The customer said that they had wanted it 30 minutes earlier, but that it was too late now. I don't get it; what could be a great dining experience kept being sabotaged by very stupid mistakes. I think that is why I hadn't been there for 5 years in the first place.

I hope there was a little more about the surprise I had planned. For anyone who is planning a surprise are going to expect a lot more from you guys, so if you can have more options - I'd love that!

The atmosphere is great and the restaurant definitely has the potential to be excellent. However, 2 of the three items we ordered came wrong. In addition to that, 1 of the 2 beef dishes was overcooked.

The service was attentive but didn't show a strong sense of compassion for the errors.

All in all it was not an experience worthy of its price, unfortunately. I work next door and wish I would want to go back more frequently due to its atmosphere and location.
