Bring the restaurant to you. Order and pay for food directly on OpenTable.
We had made reservations which was for outside. All the tables were taken, and we had to sit inside, but near the door. This was a bit disappointed. The food and service was good. Yes we will go back
We ate here on Valentine's Day. We should have chosen a different day because while food was good, service was slow and COVID precautions were questionable at best. Multiple tables placed less than 6 feet apart in a space that was covered with plexiglass on 3 sides.
Loved the food and the service!!! I Highly recommend it!!
Too crowded. Restaurant is allowing less than 3 feet in their outdoor dining. Then offering to seat people inside!
Blind Tasting was wonderful! I went with my family for my birthday, and everything was so good! We chose to do a bunch of different appetizers, and everything was delicious! We loved being at a restaurant again, and were safely distanced. I would totally go again!
Great place to go for a nice evening of wine tasting and quick bites. Service was great and it's conveniently located in a nice area on Laurel. It's right across from BOFA (there is a parking lot behind the bank). Great outdoor dining option during this pandemic. Hight recommend it.
Good service, great selection of wine and beer, and good food with a nice street cafe ambience with people milling about
Great selection of food. Terrific waiter Angelo. Good time
Always great service and outside seating available during these trying times. Great food and excellent service. Will keep going back.
Wine and beer flights are reasonably priced and relatively generous pours. This is the second time I've been to Blind Tasting and the food has really improved. Tasty, very nice-sized portions and not over priced.
During pandemic all seating is outside, which is great, because it finally feels like Europe.
Burger & fries were absolutely excellent & they accommodated outdoor seating in a lovely way- even moved the heat lamp closer to us!
A great menu with interesting choices that include an array of appetizers, sandwiches, flatbreads, salads and entrees, plus a good wine list by the bottle and the glass. Service was lovely and it was pleasant to sit outside and watch people walk by. We've enjoyed this restaurant several times and it never disappoints.
Food was amazing! I love the Gnocci and the staff is always friendly. Good vibe
Food was good service was very good. They were busy but sitting outside was nice
Our service was not that great, I felt like we were sort of forgotten about several times and some of the food on our charcuterie board was visibly old and did not smell fresh which we ended up not eating. I do understand that there are different dynamics because I’m trying to function with all of the Covid situation but I feel like that shouldn’t really have selected the things that we had issues with. Just so that nobody else could’ve potentially gotten sick we did mention to another waiter that we felt like some of the food on our board was not fresh. He did say something to our waitress and then she adjusted the bill a little bit but she never did really ask or check in on us after we got our food.
We had a darling server. Her name is Lauren. She took very good care of us. My 88 year old mother fully enjoyed herself. She’s a big fan of the French fries! We had a delicious meal. The ribs and the pasta with the prawns in saffron sauce are not to be missed. Also nice wine selection.
In theory, a great idea. Some decent wine on the list and it can be improved upon. I love the idea!
Not prepared for our reservation. Bad service—timing off on food and items forgotten. Tables shoved together at the last minute for our party and tables were different heights causing an awkward arrangement for eating and talking. Food was so so. Nobody on the wait staff cared about our order or refilling water. Terrible experience
food was very good but we were only patrons on Wed at 1:00...hope you do better other days/nights
I ordered the arugula salad & found a bunch of romaine lettuce in it - really changing that taste. There was enough lettuce to fill a small plate. I’ve had this salad before & loved it. Just a bummer it wasn’t as great.
the food was really good and wait staff really friendly and helpful. We had a large group and some mix ups on the entrees but overall I would recommend this restaurant. good value
This restaurant doesn’t seem to quite know what it wants to be - great restaurant, wine bar or pub. It’s quite crowded in terms of space. There is no check in desk -you walk in and are in the most of tables. The food is mixed; some spectacular -the artichoke beignets, which could only have been more perfect if there were six to a serving instead of eight - and some almost great (the beet salad - the beet and goat cheese sandwiches were fantastic but the salad and dressing were bland. Dessert menu was boring. Service was pretty good. Manager was hands on and very gracious. Overall a little pricy for what you get.
Nice atmosphere. Good food. Nice wine and beer list. Will definitely go back again.
Great service and delicious food. We had a big party and the food came out quickly and the atmosphere was wonderful.
A great new discovery for me! I’ll be back.
I frequented Blind Tasting when they first opened & it was excellent.
However, the past 2 visits were disappointing. We went for a late lunch on Christmas Day and place was pretty much empty except for few people sitting at the bar & employees hanging around.
Our service was very slow in spite of how empty the restaurant was….took forever to get our food. Most of our food was "fair" & the Flat Bread, we did not like at all & returned it. Our Server had forgotten to add the Tuna Tartar appetizer, so the Mgr. got it out to us. We did not like it at all…..very mayonnaise & not good flavors. Since we had returned the flatbread, we did not alert them about the tuna tartar & left most of it. It was not mentioned by the Server taking it away. The Manager did bring the bill, apologized for delay & took flatbread off the bill.
Blind Tasting is always a fabulous experience. Their food, wine selection and hospitality is excellent! We always get the octopus app and salmon entree - both outstanding. Also tried the Brussels sprouts and goat cheese salad this time, and they were super tasty!
This is our second tome. Fun menu and wonderful wine selection
Have been there a few times now and used to rave about the place. This time, had a terrible waiter who rushed us and didn't answer questions. Since my favorite item- the filet mignon salad --was no longer on the menu, I ordered the citrus salad with filet mignon on the side. The meat was so tough and undercooked I couldn't cut it or eat it all. Will definitely come back because I want to be fair - one not great experience out of many can be excused, but goes to show you how important it is to have servers who want to be nice and helpful.
Value not there. Overpriced and our server was bad.
My wife and I dined at Blind Tasting for the first time thinking it would be an intimate wine bar where we could share some tapas and a variety of wines. Their take on a wine bar is definitely on the “bar” as loud rock music was blaring the whole time and 3 large flat screen TVs had the Warriors game on. The food was fine but nothing inspired. Service was friendly but out of sync with the kitchen as our entrees showed up before we were half done with appetizers. So I’d recommend this for groups who want to have a few drinks more so than for a date night.
Had the choice of indoor and outdoor- chose outdoor and the service was pleasantly equally attentive outdoors. Menu was updated and delicious- things to please everyone and I am a vegetarian, but my husband and son are pescatarian and kept.
Wines are always excellent- a great place to enjoy and unwind!
My husband and I loved the food. We would definitely recommend Blind Tasting to our friends
Great restaurant. Food was excellent and the service fast and efficient. Nice wine list.
Great place for a wonderful meal and a large selection of wine to pair it with. Would strongly recommend giving it try.
Had a nice time for my first visit. The restaurant is decorated beautifully and the service was outstanding. I have to admit not a large crowd for a Monday night but we benefited from that. The food was good and the wine selection was outstanding. Very reasonable on price and servings were plentiful. Downtown San Carlos where lots of competition is located....worth giving it a try. Enjoyed it.... thank you.
Just not a good experience and we’ve crossed off the l’Go-To’ list...
