Flea Street began in 1980.
The atmosphere is contemporary, sophisticated and inviting.
We are a neighborhood favorite, a place to celebrate with family and friends.
Private dining is intimate and welcoming.
We remain fully committed to using clean, organic, unprocessed ingredients.

Flea Street offers innovative, approachable cuisine showcasing the very best of the season.

Our Chef, Bryan Thuerk changes the menu seasonally, carefully sourcing seafood caught nearby, produce from local farms, meat and poultry raised on pasture.

We believe that paying everyone, from production to service fairly is respectful, kind and creates the best experience for our staff and guests.

And look forward to you joining us at one of our tables!

Our bar specializes in martinis and unique cocktails using small batch liquors. A wine list features the best of California’s extraordinary vineyards with an emphasis on the local appellation--the Santa Cruz Mountains.

    The food was great, as usual. One of our party of two was placed in a seat facing a blank wall, which we found a little strange.

    food was very good and innovative as usual. i enjoyed the broccoli soup and crab cake. my husband had the pork chop and the mixture on top was delicious. i was taken aback a bit by the prices. we were there a few months back and they've gone up more than expected since then. i guess it may be due to the crab season making it less available. but most things seemed to be up. i guess that's what happens these days. Still a lovely meal with friends.

    Warm and cozy ambiance, excellent service and knowledge of servers. Food is unique with interesting twists, and of course delicious. Every dish we ordered was fantastic. Presentation of the food was done just right, not over the top. Portions are respectable. Flea street cafe is a must if you are in the Palo Alto/ Menlo Park area.

    The food was delicious as always and the service was friendly. The issue we had was the number of times servers came to clear our table between courses giving us all the distinct impression that we were being rushed. It made all of us uncomfortable.

    Food was average , our server had big time attitude and not happy with his job. We use to come to flea st. A lot before Covid because Is so close to my home. So far 4 times after Covid and each time we are more convinced that the food is getting worse . Fish was tasteless, literarily 3 small pieces of fish with some vegetables. pasta with truffle was such a small portion that my friend was still hungry and paid $80 for that dish only…risotto was ok. Desert was ok as well. We paid $600 for 4 of us and went home hungry and when asked for more bread got a look from the server. Very disappointed, Won’t be back again.

    Flea StreetResponded on December 12, 2022Hello Fara, Thank you for your years of support before and after Covid. It means so much. We wish we could be the same as before. At Flea Street we are thoughtfully trying our very hardest to nurture our customers and staff as we know both are essential for caring service and delicious food. Costs are astronomical, especially because we buy and support paying those who grow and produce organic, ingredients We will share your comments with all of our staff and do hope you return.

    Service was absolutely impeccable. The wine list is quite limited and relatively expensive and frankly a little unimaginative and pedestrian. The lamb chop snack was exceptional. The Brussel Sprouts were okay, the crab cake was very over priced. The vegetarian tasting entree seemed to lack seasoning and any punch too its flavors. The halibut cheek piccata over mashed potatoes with carrot and broccoli at $45 was a very poor value. We didn't eat dessert with 5 choices and 2 of them being ice cream and sorbet there was nothing appealing. I had expected better for $350.

    The umpteenth time we’ve eaten here, our frequent Friday date night haunt…and outstanding as always. Cocktailubermeister Eloy amazing as always. Great selection of curated wines BTG. And the food - the best. And here’s something most restaurants, even the great ones, do not do well — espresso. Here they make one as good as Blue Bottle. So start to finish perfect. Oh, and the service: charming.
