    The food was HORRIBLE! The worst meal I have had in years. The egg rolls were hard and greasy, the hot and sour soup was cold and tasted weird, the chicken in the salad was hard and it didn't taste like chicken. We left hungry. I would suggest going to McDonald's or Taco Bell. You will get a much better meal. There was only one waiter so the service was a bit slow, but he was friendly.

    We enjoyed a pre-opera dinner on Friday night. It was very quiet which allowed for pleasant conversation. The assortment of bar bites and appetizers was extensive and satisfying. We selected the sliders, potstickers and calamari. They were ample enough to satisfy three diners. We also ordered the rice dish with Chinese sausage which was very tasty. The waitstaff was attentive without being intrusive. We were very pleased and will return.

    We never ate. There was only one waiter and when we arrived he was busy very slowly helping 2 different parties pay their bill at the register. It appeared that to get his attention, they needed to approach him. He never acknowledged our presence although we were in his direct line of sight. After about 15 minutes of waiting, we left. I have eaten at Mosaic a few times in the past and it was quite good. I ate there about 5 months ago and the service was not great (we arrived for a 5PM reservation and the cook had not arrived yet. ) I will never return nor recommend them to anyone.

    The five stars is for the fish portion of the sea bass plate. It was like a gargantuan scallop fused inside a char-grilled steak. The outer edges had 3 different flavors. The grilled corners had a crisp flamed taste. Then the middle section had a glazed flavor. And it was topped off with something like a sprinkled crystal. Underneath this outer layer was the midsection, which had 2 more textures. There was a firm meaty texture with one part of the bass. Then there was a softer texture like medium rare steak. Finally in the center of the sea bass were 2 more flavor dimensions. This was were the scallop taste came from. And it was in this center portion that as it swirled around, the taste sensations went onto full maximum intensity. This high degree of flavor complexity only happens to me a few times per year, and it has never happened to me from eating fish. Sometimes chocolate yes. Sometimes with BBQ. Sometimes with the Matt Cain sandwich at Ikes too. But now I know this can happen too with fish. The chinese broccoli and the chicken wings orders were nothing remarkable. Just that sea bass.

    I was there to host a client dinner. There was no hostess when I got there so I had to stand by the door and seat my guests. Then we didn't have a waiter come by to take our orders for a long while and didn't get our appetizers or drinks for the first 45 minutes/hour. Our reservation was for 7pm and we didn't eat until around 9:30/9:45 and by that time we were all exhausted. Your food was excellent but that wait was absolutely unacceptable, especially with clients of mine.

    Small Chinese salad with chicken added was over priced. “salad” was simply LOTS of lettuce with slivers of carrot and 2 cherry tomatoes cut in half. The added chicken was very dry and spicy. An order of Thai noodles with vegetables was lots of spicy noodles with very little pieces of vegetables.

    Total chaos. No host. We had to accost bartenders and waiters for 20 minutes to get seated, there were open tables. Our reservation was not in the hand-written list of reservations, showed them confirmation from OpenTable on my phone. We ordered two appetizers, two mains and two beers. The beers came out quickly. The mains showed up eventually. The appetizers never appeared, but they were still on the bill. The food was great, particularly the crab-stuffed salmon, but what a mess.

    Made a 6pm reservation. Arrived and waited, waited, waited, while 2 servers RAN around trying to seat customers, serve customers and clear tables. At 6:30 we finally left. They need to hire more people or the restaurant will not survive.

    We were 10 minutes late being seated, and were told the kitchen waws backed up 30 minutes. Not good, since we had opera tickets. The staff helped us pick menu items that would come out fast, and another family let us order in front of them. But all told, it was discouraging. We are going to try them once more later this year.

    We ate here for the first time on Valentine's Day & had a wonderful time. The Pepper Shrimp appetizer was awesome. Since I can't eat gluten, my options were somewhat limited but that was a great one. The rack of lamb was very good but nothing too special. My husband had the duck breast that he really liked. It was pretty smokey tasting. The only dessert I could have was ice cream but the green tea ice cream was delicious & copious. It was pretty expensive but they do have a long & extensive happy hour in the bar that we will definitely do next time. The couple next to us had Calamari & Mac & Cheese that looked awesome. The cocktails were delicious. The waiter was super helpful & very chatty. He seemed to like his job.

    We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Mosaic. What a delightful experience! The food was great and the portions were perfect for sharing. We had a calamari appetizer, Chinese salad, truffle mac & cheese, and we shared a rack of lamb. The lamb was probably the best I’ve ever eaten. We finished our meal with a bowl of ice cream. Our waiter, Tim, was exceptional. His recommendations were helpful and spot on. Plus, his attitude and zeal were infectious! Well done Tim! The biggest surprise was that I made reservations here by accident! One of the best accidents I’ve ever had. We will be back, with friends.

    We love Mosaic! We go there often before attending events in downtown San Jose. Their happy hour from 5:00 to 6:30 can't be beat. House wines and Well drinks are only $6, and many appetizers are under $10. The waitstaff is helpful and friendly. Even on a busy night (Valentines' day), we got personal attention and never felt rushed.

    Pros were my scallops were amazing. In advance I asked to waiter(in reservations) to serve Preseco & he didn’t. I asked for a glass & they were out. 2nd choice they were out. My friends asked for honey & they ran out. Could have used a bread plate for the lemon. Had some pieces of greens that weren’t the freshest! Need more croutons on my Ceasar. Nice of another gentleman taking our payment to waive the 2 teas & 1 glass of sparkling wine for my 2 friend’s birthdays.
