We went for brunch and had a great visit together. The flavours of the seafood dishes was good, lamb was tasty but a bit overdone. Otherwise a nice spot

This restaurant was way off that night. Once seated it took 15 minutes for the server to introduce himself to us, then everything we ordered came at one time and the meats which were requested rare were well done and then asked to be refired which took a while to come back to our table. Lastly, the server rarely check in on us. Was there during pandemic outside and service and food was great but this time, pretty bad.

Over priced for the quality. - Don't order the ahi, as it didn't seem fresh. Otherwise fun casual place to eat. Bill should have been half of what we paid.

We had no family in town this week so we decided to go out for thanksgiving dinner. The menu was pre set but we knew that prior to arrival. We arrived on time and our table was was clean and ready, no wait to be seated. , we both loved the dinner. The turkey was cooked to perfection, moist and delicious, the potatoes were tasty as was the stuffing. The green beans were more al denté then I like but still very good. The desert consisted of 3 smallish pieces of pie, Pean, pumpkin, and apple . All three were very good. All in all we had a wonderful no drama stress free thanksgiving dinner- a huge thank you to the excellent wait staff and cooks in the kitchen that made this festive dinner possible not only for us but the other guests as well.
That all of you for a very nice dinner.

I was excited by the hype of the holiday Hult menu, however it left a lot to be desired. Soup was good, nothing special. Salad was small and not unique. Swedish meatballs and sauce were cold and basic. The side of stuffing had a good amount of flavor.

We had a reservation but waited a long time to be seated, about 30 minutes. Other people were seated before us, despite our earlier reservation. We ordered drinks and dinner and waited an extremely long time for anything to be served. We felt we were forgotten! No one brought out a heater for our outdoor seating until the end of the dinner.. We wouldn’t recommend doing this place.

Our party of 2 arrived for an early dinner at 6:15. We enjoyed a cocktail at the bar and were then seated. While our meals were prepared well, I had to leave the table twice to find our waiter. He was MIA most of the evening. The restaurant was not overly crowded so I still don’t know the issue. He finally appeared to ask if we wanted dessert. I informed him that this was a birthday celebration that was noted in advance on Open Table. He returned 10 min later asking my companions’s name and then returned another 10 min later with one scoop of ice cream for her, 2 spoons and 4 people they’d pulled from the restaurant to sing Happy Birthday (which was unnecessary). It would have been better had they simply asked if I would like to order the same dessert for myself. It’s odd sharing one scoop of ice cream! We eventually got the check. Seems like they need to train their servers a little more.

High end prices in a very Spartan environment. Food was presented nicely but of sub-average quality for the prices. Ambiance was sub-average as well. Music was too loud and inhibited quality conversation. All in all we were unimpressed and somewhat disappointed.

My family really enjoyed the food served here. We ordered fries, ahi tuna, and the sliders for starters. The lamb leg was juicy and crunchy. The service was great. Thanks to Lucas for always serving us with is gentle smile. Kudos to the friendly staffs.

Seemed concerned for COVID precautions, yet why was a couple admitted to the bar without masks?
Sat unattended for a while as we weren't told the menu is online (bring your phone!)
The server said a big party seated elsewhere, so he submitted our whole order right away, meaning it would all come at once. So, we received salads and sliders, then drinks well into those. Fries and a chicken entree were forgotten, so arrived last. (Asked for fries with the drinks to start.)
Not much contact after food delivered, had to ask several servers for more water.
Loved the beet salad. The flights are fun.
Why ask on Open Table about special occasions if no perk offered? (we had a birthday....)

Overall experience was ok. The service was not the best even though the restaurant was not busy. Food was good not great. I would say the best part was the flight of drinks.

We had a mojito flight and a couple of their signature cocktails. Shared the fries flight as well as the slider flight. Also got the mushrooms, ceviche and a wedge salad. Everything was delicious. Service was a little slow, but we weren’t in a hurry, so no big deal. Would definitely go back.

We sat outside in the patio that was made after pandemic. It is right next to the main street which is pretty noisy & load. I had the rib eye steak which was pretty good for the price! The service was alright!

We dined as a party of four. Two of us had the scallops which were well seasoned. The flight of fries was also good. The pan roasted chicken was under seasoned and the accompanying orzo had no flavor…not even a hint of lemon which was the main flavor advertised on the menu. The skewer appetizer was also underwhelming as there was no seasoning and the beef was not tender.

The service is very much lacking. At least for 3 women by themselves, others were getting waited on but I don't know how they felt. We were virtually ignored until I started waving my arm to get attention then it was still sporadic.

Drinks- exceptional margarita flight
Food- Ahi tuna flight, caprese salad and beignets were awesome. Brussell Sprouts were okay (a bit watery).
Ambiance-Nice outdoor seating on the side.
Service- accommodating, we requested a different table and they were able to move us.

Overall- a really nice experience worth returning. Thank you.

This has been one of our favorite restaurants over the past few years. I was very disappointed with the food quality. The sauces were tasteless, the steak poorly cooked, and the brussel spouts tasted like they were heated in a microwave. They came to the table floating in a pool of water with zero seasoning. Sadly, we will not be back.

First time going there. Love the concept of having flights of food and drinks. As the name of the restaurant suggests. Had a good time celebrating my girlfriends birthday there. She loved it. Will definitely go back there again.

We were celebrating a birthday and wanted to try Flights - Los Gatos. We had arrived 15 minutes early to our reservation and was seated quickly. However, we waited for over 30 minutes without any service. The servers and hostesses knew of how long we’ve waited, and continuously noticed and pointed that we were waiting but still no server came. One host even said after 20 minutes our server would be right with us but still nothing. We were all waiting and they continuously noticed how we were waiting and still nothing. So we got up and left. The restaurant was not busy. There was an abundant of open seating indoor and outdoor. It was such an awful experience. We left the restaurant telling the host in the front that we would not be dining with them and to please let their manager know.

The girls and I decided to stop by and have a drink and some appetizers. It is always fun to go here. They have a nice selection and the staff is really nice. It’s not the fastest, but you go here to hang out and catch up. The fries are awesome and I like the sliders!

The flight cocktails are a great idea. Good sized. Good for a group that doesn’t know what to drink & can be shared.

Great food, good variety on the menu and everything was cooked perfectly. Cocktails and wine were great as well. Prices very reasonable especially for the area. I think they, like everywhere, might be a bit understaffed, but our server was attentive.

Disappointing. The quality, the presentation, the taste and the service were disappointing. The chicken was too dry and the bed of rice it had been placed on was lacking flavor.

The Brussels sprouts were over cooked and the ahi and the accompanying foods did not meld and make the taste pop!

It was not busy outside where we ate and the front was and inside did not appear busy either so I cannot identify why the service was poor with a lack of attention. Don’t linger and asked every 5 minutes, but at least every 15 or so minutes.

Service was excellent. Food was average.
The most concerning issue is the “MW” charge for minimum wage.
Fold the cost into the menu prices and pay the hard working staff appropriately, instead of acting as if a fair wage is a burden you won’t cover.
Petty and selfish.
We won’t be returning.

Palo was our server and he was very attentive and respectful.
The food we ordered was good, however for the price point some of the items could have been of better overall quality.
I would certainly recommend this to a friend.
