Excellent can’t complain about anything. We have dined here many times.
First time trying this place out, it was a fun date! The food was good but nothing over the top, service as well. The ambiance was really nice!
Food was very good and service was excellent
What a great dinner! Service was excellent. Great recommendations. Everything came to the table quickly. Will definitely go back!
One of my favorite restaurants in downtown SJ. Thank you for making my dinner anniversary fantastic!
excellent food; fine, friendly service; the noise level was low
Very nice, pleasant dinner, I was quite surprised to be charge for bread!
The food and service was excellent
The food and the service were both above and beyond.
Service was top notch and the food was quite delicious .
The food was very delicious, perfect place with many amenities and the service so polite and very friendly
Sergio seated us. Ihab our waiter did a great job opening our wine and suggesting what was good on the menu. We had outstanding fresh cod.
Wonderful time with our friends!
I like cross street parking. I can see my car while I am having my dinner. Food is delicious as always and service is wonderful as well.
Wedding Anniversary and pre comedy show dinner
The food was outstanding! Service even better.
Our food was tasty and presented hot. Service was excellent and attentive.
If you’re looking for an Italian restaurant this is NOT the one. Their pasta special with seafood w/white sauce tasted like they scooped it from the ocean and served it, no flavor just frozen seafood that was left for month. Their bolognese pasta tasted just like tomato paste, nothing else. The only thing that was good was wine from Sonoma…
Great service. The best NY steak I ever had… you should definitely try this place out.
Nice service great food and everything was perfect
The service was really bad abs we were surprised. Took twenty min to order a beverage after seated. Took far longer to order dinner. Food very good but please provide some service.
Good food and good service, when they were around. You can’t go here and be on a schedule. We weren’t, thankfully. Really enjoy this place overall, just be aware…
Last minute decision to eat at Il Fornio as we were passing through town and were pleasantly surprised at the excellent service by the staff, especially Ihab our server, and excellent quality drinks and meal.
Great food and great ambience right in downtown San Jose. The braised short ribs are awesome!
The drinks and service was great but the food was sadly terrible. The bruschetta was good but the bread tasted like it was days old. I ordered a dinner special of Rigatoni and it was just a mess. Tasted and looked terrible. We also ordered lasagna which tasted frozen. Very expensive for this quality of food. I have been to ll Fornaio several times other locations and have been great. Very disappointing.
Great service from start to end of dinner!!! Even short handed it was outstanding!! 👍🏻♥️
Food was fantastic. Staff attentive but not overly so. Definitely will be back.
Servers were excellent, food was really good. Oddly we were told it would take a while to order and get our food when we were sat, so we rushed to choose something and order right away so we could get to our show, but our server was super attentive and the food came out fast. So we felt like we were needlessly rushed at the beginning. But still a great spot.
This is a perfect restaurant to celebrate a birthday! The maitre d' made sure our server knew it was my birthday, and said to 'make sure to treat her like a queen'. This included a complimentary glass of prosecco and a beautiful piece of tiramisu for dessert, both 'on the house'. My friends and I shared a caesar salad, which was a perfect amount to split for 3. Interestingly, none of us had pasta. I had the beef tenderloin, which was cooked to perfection (rare) and accompanied by carrots, broccolini, and baby potatoes. My friends had a new york steak and the short ribs, both cooked perfectly. This is a lovely restaurant, clean and elegant. Parking on the street is free after 6 pm.
We always enjoy coming here, and the food was excellent as usual even though it seemed the portions were a little smaller. Still excellent value though. The service was great, although the ambience was a little sad because there were so few people there. This is surely the result of Covid, not the restaurant itself, and we just hope that people will have the confidence to start returning and support this excellent restaurant. Oh, and I had told open table reservation was for a birthday celebration and without asking the restaurant Davis a free happy birthday tiramisu to share. A very nice touch!
We selected Il Fornaio for our anniversary dinner. Everything was great. Added plus that it was connected to the Westin-St.Claire Hotel where we were staying!
Excellent dinner and the service is always outstanding.
One of our favorite Italian restaurants, it didn’t disappoint.
Super good food and service!
We sat at the bar and our server was amazing! Thank you for a great meal and wine!
Outstanding food and drink! Excellent staff with elegant surroundings.
Food was great, service was great. A little strange that they charged us $2 for bread, but maybe that was due to the Dine Downtown specials that we ordered.
We love IlFornaio! They vary their specials. The staff is fantastic! One of our favorite restaurants.
Food was not as good as a couple years ago. Was overcharged $10 on bottle of wine. Was charged an extra $200 on credit card. We used to enjoy going there but won't be back at least not for a long time.
IIl Fornaio has been one of my favorite restaurants for years.
