Food and service were good. Quieter than many restaurants in the area so good for business conversation. The room feels a little like a hotel breakfast room rather than a fine restaurant. Wouldn’t recommend it for a romantic evening.

I thought the food was above average but not great. The presentation was beautiful. The service was also good, not great. It was a beautiful dining room in a beautiful hotel but I felt for the price the food and service should have been a few levels up.

The steak was good but not excellent. Their definition of medium well cook of steak probably different to other steak house. My plate was little over cooking, some restaurant when you order medium well cooked steak then you still see a little bit rose color of a beef. However the meat is tender and juicy.

Service was great! We thought the food a little overwhelming, the sandwiches were two large due to the very thick bread slices. The entrees could be smaller, actually. The presentation was very nice, and the setting, also. Friendly, quick service by everyone!

Thank you, La Fontana, for helping us celebrate family members July birthday month. The table was set beautifully upon arrival, service was 5 stars, and food was good. The waiters song happy birthday and brought out two cakes for the July birthday ladies without request... I highly recommend this restaurant for any occasions. You all did a great job! Much appreciation, until next time!

Enjoyed my visit. Everything was delicious. The fruit was super fresh and desserts were to die for! We went for Mothers Day and of course it was crowded but the ladies checking you in were extremely slow. Many elderly people had to find seats because waiting in line for that length of time became a hardship. They should have been better prepared. I won't go there on a holiday.

We were here for Mother's Day brunch, since my husband is slack, this was our only option in the bay area with a Sunday brunch less than hour drive. It was a fraction of the price of other places and I can see why. The lids were kept open the whole time, making the food cold. We came in and had to wait in a line up that just wasn't moving for at least 30 minutes. We talked to the hostess in the back and the manager was over to excuse us from the line and sat us-thank you for that! But the hostess did tell us first off, that we were to go back to the line and wait because it must be because there are 10-20 person tables waiting to be sat and that's why there were so many people in line. Not sure what she was talking about, these people were not together, nice excuse though. As I was walking to my table, where my 2 young children were already sitting, a young man tried to move my kids and rudely ask if I had a reservation as I was sitting down. Maybe I'm picky- but this was nuts. Didn't make me feel welcome at all. Asking if I already had a reservation was really bad! It was reservation only since it was mother's day. They had too many reservations and had fold up tables by the bar to compensate. That's where we were sat. We are not into sports and a crowd was standing by the bar cheering on the teams- dads leaving moms alone to go watch their sports. The moms looked bored :( Thank goodness my kids and husband were cheering the situation up, but I could feel my husband getting upset at first and he doesn't usually get upset over these things, this was bad...real bad.

Coles Notes:
The food was gross and cold. Took forever to get sat even though we had reso.
Overall, do not recommend if you appreciate good food and atmosphere. Service was the only thing that saved it.

Our experience at Easter Brunch was unbelievably BAD. We had gone there before and had enjoyed ourselves. This time was unreal. Brunch reservations for seatings were until 2pm. We got there around 1pm. We asked to be seated before the rest of our party arrived. The table we were shown was next to the kitchen where the carts and waiters were crossing through. We finally were shown an acceptable table. When we went out to the buffet, most of the pastries, toast etc were gone. The seafood consisted of empty king crab shells and very few shrimp. The hot dishes were lukewarm. We did get a carafe of coffee and a glass of mimosa. After that the wait staff proceeded to start cleaning up. There was no time for the carving station or the omelets. My husband managed to stop someone to get a bagel for us (just one), and then had to find someone to get it toasted. All of this for $300.00. We had to pay before we were seated and a tip was included. There was no food and no service. I left a message for Rashid (purportedly the restaurant manager) and have not heard from him or anyone else.

The food is in the front lobby. They added on a tip but didn't tell us You had to pay before getting seated. We were there early but it seemed that they were already out of items. The signs by each food item didn't match what was in the pan. The carving station was really stingy in their cuts. The food wasn't that good. And certainly not worth the value that we paid. We won't go back.

The food quality was poor. I had the French onion soup. It was a bit sour, possibly spoiled. My Cobb salad was tasteless. The chicken was dried and overcooked. The service and ambience were good, but if the food is poor, the entire experience is ruined.

Valentine's dinner was the occasion & we ate here many years ago, which I remember everything being very good, but this time the dinners were not up to par.
Her meal: The Lobster Bisque appetizer & Poached Pear dessert were excellent, but the duck in the Pan Seared Duck Breast dinner was overcooked & “Port wine-sundried cherries” were too much/overpowered everything else, plus the “patty pan” mini yellow squash seemed undercooked.
His meal: The Sonoma Greens Salad appetizer & Chocolate Mousse dessert were excellent, as was the salmon itself in the Short Smoked Salmon dinner, but the chard was bland/wilting (overcooked?) & the “patty pan” mini yellow squash seemed undercooked.
On a high note, the service was outstanding & the desserts were very delicious!

We were very pleased with the ambiance and the service, which was prompt and courteous. Everyone in the group expressed great satisfaction with the food, actually praised the taste, preparation and the quantity of the food. The noise level was acceptable and we had very little difficulty talking the length of the table with nine guests. The restaurant was full but the tables were not crowded and the restaurant was light and cheerful.

I will definitely eat at this restaurant often and will recommend it to others.

made reservation online for 730 because that was what was available When I got here the place was empty! So right away I'm wondering why I could not get in earlier? So the waiter says they are closed on the weekend??? Weird but they served us. Last I wanted the pork chops which where on the online menu but not on the real menu

I have been coming here for years. I love the changes made a few years back. The food is great and the friendly service is good. They have two places u can eat in one more intimate and the other for the more social. Either area is great. You can watch the game while having a great meal.

Food was ok. I tight the piccata was greasy there was a huge party that came in with at least 7 young children that were so loud and misbehaved. The parents were enjoying the adult company side of the table and could have cared less (hate that) ruined my business meal with my colleagues. Very average Italian food and yes, I'm Italian.

My lunch meal presentation was pleasingly artistic and it was delicious. La Fontana had a good selection of dishes for lunch, such that choosing was challenge. Our server was great -- she had lots of patience and was friendly and polite. I'd definitely eat here again, even though the dishes seemed a bit pricey.
