Californian
Flea Street has been a Silicon Valley favorite since 1980. The atmosphere is contemporary, sophisticated and inviting. The menu is a celebration of the rich Northern California food community: seafood is caught in the nearby Pacific, produce is carefully sourced from local farms, meat is grass-fed or pasture-raised to name just a few. Flea Street offers innovative yet approachable cuisine that showcases the very best of the season. 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.

I got an email telling me about the gnocchi with truffles and it said it was not to be missed. Well, they delivered. Amazing flavor! The carrot ginger soup was excellent also, along with the buttermilk biscuits. My friends were impressed with the wine and liquor selections and the bartender made useful recommendations. We only wish the duck hadn’t sold out before we got there. I’m pretty sure I successfully convinced my friends to come back again.

Unfortunately the food was not as good as it has been for the previous several years. Flea Street is always an appealing place to go - very warm and comfortable with good service - that has not changed. But none of our dishes were excellent - they were all acceptable, certainly none were bad but the food used to be excellent.

Always a fantastic experience. The bartenders make great cocktails. The service is always wonderful. Dinner selections were a little fewer choices than in the past, seems like, but the food is always great...this is a wonderful place, not inexpensive but there are so few great places in Menlo Park, this one is worth it.

Flea Street is a "special occasion" restaurant based on price and the gourmet level of the food. We had the crab cakes and everyone in our party of four agreed they were the best crab cakes we had ever eaten and we have eaten many in our lives! We were in the room farthest from the bar so we were able to converse quietly and hear each other, a real plus. "Which came first?" was declared excellent by the person who ate it. The short ribs were fall off the bone delicious. The halibut cheeks were also wonderful. Two of the dishes came with brussels sprouts were cooked perfectly, tender but not mushy. All plates were cleaned!

I stopped going here for about a year because I thought the food had gotten more innovative than tasty. But last night felt like a return to real respect for bringing out the natural flavors of fresh food. Delicious!

People have said that Flea Street has changed but for me it's still exceptional. It is pricey but still will always be a special place. The halibut cheeks were the highlight of the night. We had several dishes that we all shared. Flea Street was very gracious to accommodate. It was a wonderful dining experience. Love the ambiance, the people, and especially the food.

The dishes served are beautiful. They appeal to the eye and of course to one’s taste. The ambience as well as the serve staff’s vibe makes you feel welcome and that you have all the time in the world to enjoy your visit.
The staff is knowledgeable about the dishes and drinks on the menu. Very attentive service.
Averaged about $100 p/p w/appetizers, entree, & cocktails.
Parking lot on the side of the building

Flea Street is consistently one of the area’s best. Impeccably sourced food, lovingly prepared, beautifully presented. The staff is first-rate, the atmosphere embracing, the noise level civilized. Every bit as good as Madera, it fully deserves a Michelin star.

Very slow service (we waited 25 minutes and had to ask for someone to come tell us about specials and take our orders)

The crudo was overly vinegary and the fish not specially tasty (also too cold)

The rest wasn't great either

A disappointment compared to previous visits - and very expensive to boot

Flea Street has always been our favorite special occasion restaurant. We've been going there since shortly after it opened, and it never disappoints. The food is as beautiful as it is tasty. One almost hates to deconstruct it in order to eat it!

From the moment we walk in the door we are greeted and treated as special guests.

Great service, great food. A wonderful experience all 'round!

The food has improved in the recent years. The service is good if you don't count the waiter. This is not the first time that the waiter has been absent minded. The boss boy, the barman and the host are always very professional and efficient.

Flea Street is always welcoming. The staff, from front hostess to servers to table assistants are unfailingly friendly and helpful. The chefs and cooks are the best, and the barkeep serves wonderful drinks. Jesse Cool makes point of warmly thanking all of her guests, which means a lot. The quality of the ingredients is amazing. My only tiny disappointment this visit was that the poached egg on my “Which Came First?” entree was over-poached; no luscious runny yolk coating my lovely chicken dish. Oh well, next time!

We LOVE Flea Street, and it's our go-to restaurant for special occasions or with special friends. Food, service, quality was outstanding as always. Our only surprise was that it was a bit noisier than it's been -- they were totally full on a Wed. night and we have an energetic party of 8 seated at the table next to us, but this really didn't diminish our dining experience.

We had a great dinner at Flea Street. We shared a plate of the miyagi oysters, which were excellent. The 'Pacific catch' seafood entree was very good, but the vegetarian tasting entree (squash, quinoa, mushroom crostata, gnocchi, etc.) was really outstanding. Lovely ambiance, excellent service, would definitely recommend and return.

The food is good but the service was not what one would expect at this restaurant and at these prices. At times it was good but then it all but disappeared.
