The staff and the food were excellent.
The prime rib was perfect, juicy and flavorful.
Sishito peppers are a hit along with the sauce it comes with.
The view is perfect after a long hard day or week.

The outdoor dining experience is outstanding as is the service and food. This place is pricey, but well worth it for the occasional splurge.

My squid ink pasta was delicious and the view was amazing. The service was good, and with the heater on next to our table, it was comfy to sit outside. Only negative- FRANK SINATRA all night long- nothing but FRANK SINATRA- even the goofy songs like High Hopes- not a fan of Frank Sinatra so it was very annoying.

The food was good, nothing must come back for. The view was nice, but I imagine would be nicer at night. (I was there from 5pm - 7pm) We got a nice sunset picture. It was a bit toasty around that time too and the sun was kind of in my eyes. They could not lower any shading since other customers were seated next to the curtains. I heard they have a pianist - we did not get to hear or see one. Not sure if due to Covid. It was a little smokey although the fires calm down and didn't smell smokey. The drive up made me a little sick. The prices were high, but I didn't feel the food was exceptional. I think it's all for the view. It's a must try - but now that I've been... I am not sure I need to go again. Ruth Chris or any other steak house has better food & options.

My wife and I drove for what turned out to be over an hour to thus remote location in the San Jose hills only to find the restaurant was CLOSED! Open-Table reservations made and confirmed with reservation #. Why us Open-Table taking reservations on restaurants that are closed?!

Responded on August 30, 2020

After a long closure, due to the pandemic, we recently reopened for our patio outdoor dining and stunning views! Sadly, due to the recent California wildfires we had to temporarily close again! We did try to reach all of our guest with reservations to notify everyone. Upon your next visit please let our management team know the situation and of course we would love to give you an extra special dining experience! Thank you again for your understanding and loyal support! The Grand View

Decent dinner Sunday night. The view, of course, is great and only outside seating is available at this time. The ambiance is usually quite pleasant, but the swarms of flies detracted from our enjoyment of the meal. The food and service were good. I typically don’t mind paying a premium, but the pricing here is getting a exorbitant. For what is delivered, the value is not there. Furthermore, the restaurant assessed a “living wage” because of the high labor costs in the region. I get it, but it is still insulting and disrespectful towards your guests. Just adjust the menu prices. Don’t make the political statement.

First thing you'll notice is that the view is amazing. I recommend grabbing the rail-side seating, where you'll be able to get a clear view over the city with whomever you're coming with. The vibe in the environment is calming and romantic.

The service was amazing. It was my first thing there, so they gave us a little history about how they get their fresh ingredients because I was wondering myself. We had to be moved to the upper patio, due to having to close the lower patio early, but they were super polite about it.

Lastly, the food. Wow. It was really good. We got the arancini, tomahawk steak with a lobster tail, and maine lobster ravioli. Arancini came in 3 and it felt a little pricey, but the flavor felt worth it. My girlfriend got the tomahawk steak (even though it wasn't on the menu) and she loved it. I got the ravioli and it was amazing. One thing I didn't like was that the pasta was a little hard around the edges, but other than that, everything was perfect. We had a great and wonderful night here and I'll be looking forward to returning!

Fun place to celebrate and watch the sunset over the Bay area. Beautiful views and a fun drive. Food is good, not great, but the setting and service make up for it. Very responsible regarding social distancing. Excellent choice of wine and sommelier was fantastic.

My girlfriend and I visited the Grand View on a Tuesday night. The staff was friendly and helpful, the food tasted amazing, and the view was beautiful. However, the sound of the refrigerator was difficult to speak over, and the smell of what seemed to be a butcher house was prominent. Thank you for a great night.

We had a great time. Our server Maxime was wonderful, attentive without hovering, had great recommendations. The view was incredible, the drive up and down the mountain was very pleasant. Loved that all the food came from the nearby farm. You could tell they genuinely respected each and every vegetable. Will definitely be returning and bringing many of our out of town visitors here.

The Grandview is definitely a destination restaurant with an awesome view. I was actually happy the dining room is closed right now, the patio was amazing. Very clean. Took our temp upon arrival with this cool standalone contact less thermal images. All staff wearing masks, disposable menus, hand sanitizer at every table. Food servers wore gloves as well. Awesome waiter and staff. Food was amazing. Hostess could've been a little nicer at the greeting. Otherwise it was an awesome experience. Highly recommend a reservation around sunset on the patio. So gorgeous.

Lovely setting, although the drive there is up a narrow and snakey road with steep drop off places without guard rails.

The restaurant had beautiful vistas with great service and good, but very expensive food. Bring your checkbook or high limit credit card.

Upper and lower deck. We were give lower deck. Why? Would have preferred upper deck. The hostess sat us in the partial shade, but didn't assist when we needed to move the table out of the sun! We came for the oysters and were disappointed. But for the most part the food was good. We split everything and the bill was still over $250. Guess we are paying for the sunny lower deck. :(

It was wonderful to return to Grand View Restaurant! Their outdoor dining was well distanced; waiters all wore masks; guests all arrived with masks and temperatures were taken. The food was good; service was good but not outstanding. The view cannot be beat! It was a lovely experience.
