We love this restaurant. Great menu well executed. Not a huge menu, but I always struggle to choose among the great options (boar & elk to shrimp and pasta). Nice drink and wine menu. Beautiful location. Very quiet (it has carpet!), so we could talk and hear each other the entire evening. Its a bit of a drive, but well worth it for a great dinner and relaxing time with friends.
Great food and service. Pricey though even by silicon valley standards... we did a 5 course prix fix menu / sampler -- was $150 each but really amazing. Excellent food, great service.
A big thank you to La Foret for the great birthday dinner we had Friday evening.
We were especially pleased with the excellent service, having a window table and
the warm atmosphere inside the restaurant.
Thank you to the staff and Jesse for FABULOUS service. The food was spectacular! Such a wonderful ambiance to enjoy extraordinary food!
We love this charming and romantic restaurant nestled along a creek at the base of the foothills. It's pricey, so we save for special occasions like birthdays and anniversary. The mushroom tortellini with garlic cream sauce were delicious. The tournedos of beef with brandy sauce were equally delicious. My husband enjoyed the tasting menu and everything was fantastic. Their sous chef is terrific. But the best part of the meal is the grand marnier souffle. Plate licking good!
Amazing ambience and always great food & wine
Although somewhat expensive, EVERYTHING coming out of the kitchen is excellent. We come to La Foret for many special occasions.
Excellent as always. Thank you, Sami and all the great staff.
Beautiful brunch to celebrate friend’s birthday. Excellent service, excellent food.
We came here for our anniversary. Our server was attentive. Food came out at a reasonable time. My rib eye was suppose to be medium well but came out medium rare. The dish as taken back and a new plate came out within minutes and perfect. We were also given an anniversary dessert pate which had four different desserts which was awesome.
Thank you for making our date night special. We will definitely be coming back and recommending this hidden gem to others!
Great place, great service, great food. The wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening!
I am comparing this place to La Papillon which has better tasting food than La Foret. However, the service and ambience at La Foret is excellent. Worth visiting again.
Great food. Great service. Always a treat to dine here.
Our server, Eva, was wonderful and displayed grace and dignity when dealing with us! She was great!
As always, the food was wonderful. Loved the sauces!
Lovely little restaurant. Highly recommend for a special occasion.
Best veal hands down. We order it every time we go.
Our first time visiting, we were seated promptly and our food was excellent. Portions on the small side for the value of money, we will visit again soon
My lamb chops were horrible, raw and chewy. We were seated right in the path of all of the servers running back and forth to the kitchen and bar. Felt very out of place and weren't even facing each other. It was Valentine's day and didn't feel romantic at all. It was very cold and drafty too. I was wearing a dress so I was not comfortable. No where to set my small clutch so I practically had to sit on it to prevent bad manners and put it on the table. Meh.
The food and ambiance was great. Everyone was friendly and attentive. Would go back again. Had the 6 tasting menu, that was nice especially the ravioli and first course shrimp. The carrots that came with the lamb (5th course) was heavenly!
Consistently is the hallmark of La Foret.
La Foret is where to go for an impeccable meal and service. It's also great for special occasions, especially if some aren't into getting really dressed up. The suggested attire is "Business Casual". The location is well off the beaten path, much like its sister restaurant, Grand View. But what La Foret has over Grand View is the ambiance. La Foret has been around for a long time and exudes restrained elegance. Grand View is been remodeled and is a bit more "new make-over" glitzy. The restaurant is next to a creek and many windows over look the water. The food at La Foret is superb. I had the Tornedos of Beef, which is my absolute favorite. Though it's off the menu now, they were able to make the Tarragon Cognac reduction sauce that I love so much. The service is ALWAYS impeccable. There's plenty of parking in back. It's a bit of a drive but not nearly as challenging as the nerve-wracking mountain road to Grand View. I live less than 15 minutes to the Grand View and have enjoyed them very much! But nothing compares to La Foret.
Anniversary dinner. We enjoyed the smaller tasting menu and found each selection most tasty-enhanced by the light French sauces.
We got there early and the staff were most welcoming-especially Eric, our waiter.
A most memorable experience ❣️
Location and service were outstanding and our proteins were cooked perfectly. My only small quibble is both my wife and I found our salads to be a overdressed.
Food was bad - very heavy sauces that drowned out the dishes, sides and appetizers were poorly cooked
We had a very enjoyable dinner. Our waiter was very attentive and accommodating. The food was superb. Nice atmosphere to relax and dine.
Great food and even better service! Love the different options of game food.
Every dish was better than the last, and the ambience is beautiful. However, our server could have been more on top of things and known more about the menu.
La Foret is the special date night dinner reservation. Almost all the way to Morgan Hill, its well worth the drive. La Foret has a special talent for game meat; elk, bison, venison, etc. Always served to perfection.
The service is friendly but professional; look for their black ties!
The service and drinks were good. Food was bland, they had this super odd “amuse bouche”( not single bites but maybe that was what they were going for???) of grapes, shrimp cocktail, watermelon, and artichoke/mushrooms. By far the oddest combination ever. The entree we had was Veal, and Linguine with prawns and scallops. The veal tasted like beef stroganoff( covered in a lemon cream sauce), and the linguine had a taste of stir fry, not to mention the scallops were way over cooked and firm. The service was good and the food that wasn’t good was taken off the bill but the food was so below fine French standards we will not come back.
Unfortunately, we waited an hour and a half for our dinner after the salads and appetizers. 2 of the 6 main courses were good. While the salads were superb the scallops and lobster ravioli were tasteless. The fruits de mar had way to much pasta. Finally, don't order the souffle. For a French restaurant they were an embarrassment...
We brought friends to La Foret who had never been. We had a delightful experience. Everything was perfect.
Nice place for celebration. Learned that they actually have a garden that they source some of the food. Really nice touch.
Great food and wonderful service! Can be a bit loud, hard to chat for a date, but we ended up having a wonderful time anyway!
Great service as we never felt rushed while enjoying all of the delicious food. The Bloody Marys were made to perfection.
We would like to thank the entire staff for the lovely afternoon brunch. It was a fantastic way to spend two hours.
This place is enchanting from the beginning to end. Sam the GM is delightful and welcomes you into his wonderland as if he is welcoming you into his home!
Jessie our server is AMAZING and SO wonderful. A server can make or brake an evening out in an instant. But not our Jessie, She hit it out of the ball park!!!!! WOW Jessie you ROCK!!!!!! Thank You beyond THANK YOU!!! xoxxoxooxoxoxoxo
La Foret is an exquisite dining experience in an idyllic setting.
Made notes for wedding anniversary when making a reservation. But nobody came to greet us. There is literally no smile during all nights. No desserts for surprise.
Food was good. service was just Ok.
Megan was incredible. Lovely drinks and caviar. Would return!
New Year’s Eve. Everything was fabulous except it took too long for the food to come I know they were busy with such a big holiday. we started at 9 o’clock and then get her last course till close to 1 AM.
