Really enjoyed the wonderful mix of foodie options with comfort food. Our server was awesome. The atmosphere was so relaxing and comfortable and we could catch part of the Warriors game from our table without feeling like we were in a crowded bar. Perfect for us!

The food was good, the service was mediocre. We came for our anniversary and despite telling open table and the restaurant our occasion we didn’t get acknowledged. It was pretty disappointing but at least the food was good.

Very disappointed this visit. Our server was distracted from moment we sat down. We waited a long time between his visits to answer questions and take our order. Appetizers delicious, however mushroom pasta entree so oily / greasy I only ate about 10 percent of it. Left the rest. My west side joe cocktail was not cold, nor was my husbands beer. Our wine was good but at $75 bottle it should be. My husbands steak potatoes and vegetables were all greasy as well. $200 our share of the bill - $$ dinner for two and was not enjoyable. This used to be our go to for dinner out with friends- based on last Saturday night we won’t be going back for a long time.

We had the salmon and NY steak, both were amazing! Place was busy, since it was Friday night, but service was still great. I would recommend reservations.

Our service was impeccable, the prices were on par or even a little lower ham the higher-end steakhouses in downtown or Santana Row but we couldn't have been more impressed with the quality of the food. Would have been nice to have an raw bar selection available, as we weren't huge fans of the deviled eggs. They were a little overpriced for what they were but the rib eye and NY strip made up for it. The whiskey menu was on point and there California Sidecar is not to be missed. We were too full for dessert but the sweets menu looked great!

Unfortunately, the prime rib we ordered medium rare was rare. Even more frustrating, the food was served almost immediately after we ordered, but the wine didn't arrive until we were half way through eating.

Our waiter was exceptional and he really listen to what we had to say and explained everything thoroughly. The food was great but, the Alaskan halibut, which was the fresh fish of the day, was a tad bit dry but good. We also, ordered a salad and the scallops. The scallops were amazing. The cornbread was good as well. I went with my mother and she is not a drinker but she had a drink and she loved it. I had an egg white drink and it was great. I would def. go again.

We tend to leave fancy steak houses feeling like we spent more than the meal was worth. Not so at Dry Creek! French Onion soup was marvelous. Excellent cuts of meat, yummy sauces, hearty portions, fresh grilled veggies and potatoes. Couldn't have fit in dessert if we'd wanted to . It was a great place for our anniversary dinner and we will be back!

We were pleasantly surprised at our Dry Creek Grill experience. We were given gift cards for Christmas and thought the restaurant was in downtown Willow Glen.. We were disappointed that it was in a strip mall on Hamilton Avenue until we went inside. The transformation was amazing. It has the look. Feel, and ambience of an upscale restaurant that could be in the heart of Willow Glen or Los Gatos. The service was good, a little slow, but they were busy. The food choices were impressive and the food quality was excellent. I had the pappardelle, my favorite pasta. It was delicious. My husband loved his meatloaf. They had a nice wine list. We will go there again.

The food was bland. They can’t do steaks right. Nor can they do deserts right.
Drinks were good though.
For the price they charge, the food should be a lot tastier.
Outback Steakhouse is actually way better than this place when it comes to the quality of the food.

The service was decent, but the waitress was a bit forgetful and flighty. But she was very nice.

Went here with my family to celebrate a birthday and the cocktails and service were what I remembered. The family ordered a variety of items off the menu and everyone seemed to enjoy what they ordered. I have had the short rib a few times and ordered it again. While the meat was very tender, the accompanying gnocchi and fava beans were disappointing. I much preferred the polenta that was paired with it previously and hope they bring it back. Our waiter was attentive without constantly interrupting, which was very much appreciated. All in all it was a delightful experience and I will continue to return and recommend it to friends. It's a hidden gem.

We went there for my mother in laws birthday it’s one of our favorite places to dine, the server surprised her with comp NY cheesecake which she loves a lot. My husband and I have great memories from dining there the servers are very friendly and great at what they are doing although if the hostess would be little bit more welcoming it will make the experience even better. I gave the food 4 stars because they changed the menu while didn’t update their menu online. I had ordered bone marrow to be ready at the time we got there but they called to let us know that it was removed and that made us really upset cause that’s what we order every time we dine there in fact that was something that would make us choose to go there each time rather than other restaurants. I really hope they bring it back.
