We had very good service and we enjoyed our meal. The menu didn't differentiate the types of dishes and it seems some plates are geared more for sharing and others were standalone. It was a bit confusing but we liked what we ordered. The bar crowd was a bit noisy and it was difficult to carry on a conversation. I had forgotten to mention to the waiter that we had a performance we were going to after our meal but our food came out quickly nontheless.

Tim was our server last Saturday and we generally seek him out because he’s great! Friendly personality, sharp sense of humor and good food recommendations.
I had the crab stuffed salmon, my brother had the ribeye steak—both were fantastic.

Too bright for dinner and no soft music, only noise from the bar and kitchen
Bad experience

It was already great food and a nice locale with a jazz band playing while we dined, but the topper was the amazing Tim. He was the most attentive waiter I've ever had and went above and beyond for us. He was an angel and deserves all the credit for making our anniversary that much better.

The food is sub par at best. The shrimp wonton with dry scallop broth is literally the worst soup we had ever tasted. The broth was full of sugar that's more appropriate for a dessert. Every other dishes are okay to sub par only. There was a band playing jazz so it understandable that the noise level is high. We definitely would not come back again.

Very good and attentive service. The food was good and the proportions were sized well. The Chilean sea bass was expertly cooked and the vegetables perfectly done with the carrots being done yet the broccoli and zucchini were still al dente as they should be. Nice selection of beers and wines.

Terrible, just terrible. I had a Groupon and the bill was still outrageous. The food was disgusting. I had the ribeye, medium rare. All it came with were a few slices of asparagus for $38. I asked for it medium rare and it came out well done. Also, there is no parking. There is a hotel parking lot for the Sheraton, which is where the restaurant is, but you are not allowed to park there if you're not staying at the hotel. You have to park down the street in a paid parking lot which range from $5-$10 an hour. Horrible restaurant, horrible food, horrible parking.

I was able to book a table for 18 within a 1 hour notice. They accommodated our party very well. We were delighted to see they sat our large party at a table in their back dining room, perfect for our happy/lively/loud party.

Food was delicious and very tasty! We ordered the calamari & jalapeño appetizer, as well the the artichoke dip with pita chips/bread. The calamari was fresh and crispy! The pita chips were crunchy and soft at the same time, perfect balance for dipping and biting into.

For our entrees we ordered a variety of dishes, the flat iron steak & prawns with asparagus was a big hit with our party. Just be sure the meat you request is what you receive. If it was too red for some, they gladly took the meat back to grill it up again.

I will definitely be back to try out their happy hour - variety of appetizers that are 50% off, and drinks for less than $10.

Our new favorite place. Went in with a Groupon and the staff embraced it instead of looking down on it as other restaurants have done. Started with calamari, the lettuce wraps, pork buns, then entrees of sea bass, flat iron steak with giant prawns, and fried rice with salmon. Ended the evening with chocolate lava cake with sauce and fresh strawberries. And our drinks were great: pomegranate lemon drop, berry lemon drop, pineapple mule, and Bloody Mary. Plus on the house champagne as we were celebrating our friend's recent nuptials.

Our waiter was eager to please. Great service, but a little too much in contact. There was a loud tech happy hour, so it was noisy with drunks yelling at sports until late in our meal. They also seated a large group next to us, when there were plenty of other tables to choose from. Not so thoughtful. The food was amazing. We had a groupon, otherwise it might have seemed a bit expensive, but not too bad. We had a nice window seat, but the decor is nothing special, and the view is just the streetcar.

Great happy hour prices. Nice & quiet even with the TV's in the bar area for watching sports. They need to make the entrance more visible; not only did I go to the front but many other guests before realizing the entrance was down the side of the building. Would be nice if they offered validated parking.

Our waitstaff split the meal and the second waiter was very helpful in letting us know about their happy hour. Overall the food was good but not overly inspired. It is not a signature type of restaurant, but being in a hotel seems to offer a wide range for everyone. I wouldn't hesitate to go back, but bringing in a chef that brings some distinction to the food wouldn't be a bad thing as San Jose is really starving for a bold restaurateur who isn't afraid to try some new and exciting stuff, especially in the area of Asian Fusion. They had a nice jazz band when we were there. Bring on some unique and creative food to match the nice ambiance and I think this could be a destination type place.

Two of us ladies had a groupon for a before theater dinner. We liked the food very much! Everything was excellent. We had the shrimp with walnus, Chinese salad half order, garlic noodles, string beans, lamb with XO sauce, and it was all yummy. We had plenty of leftovers also. It would have been pricey without the groupon, but for an upscale Asian dining experience it was very nice. I'd like to try the happy hour some time.
