No indoor seating at this time. Had to sit outside with no blankets or heaters so very cold and uncomfortable chairs. I had the crab pasta and it was frankly tasteless. I don't think I will be going back.
What a great find. This husband and wife team put out great simple elegantly prepared food. Completely delicious and honest. They have a great focus on the best of local and seasonal. For example - pea risotto just leaving the menu while the first of the local corn is just making it onto the menu.
Will be back!
We absolutely love number5kitchen. The dishes combine a mix of seasonal flavors and textures that come together perfectly, and in creative ways! The family-run business is so friendly and warm, and the interior space is thoughtfully decorated. We’re so excited to be able to dine there safely again as restaurant experiences slowly get a little more back to normal!
Henry, chef and owner, served us a delicious, high quality, expertly prepared meal. Clean, fresh flavors; quality ingredients; our dishes were executed with precision and plated with attention to detail. I enjoyed a light and delicious salad before my perfectly cooked sole served with Henry’s delicious aioli. Dining at number5kitchen was relaxed and casual while the food was elegant and well crafted. Meeting Henry elevated the experience. He was delightful and made us feel warmly welcomed. Dining there reminded us of meals in Paris at small, hidden gems. We wish Henry all the best in surviving through the business challenge of Covid.
Henry makes great food! I had the Petrale Sole - so fresh, perfectly grilled and my husband had the Roasted Buttermilk Chicken also perfectly cooked. This small, family-run restaurant is a labor of love.
Great quality food, interesting combinations, a delicious experience!!
Everything was so fresh and delicious. We had the most amazing pasta with crab, burrata, and Meyer lemon! I might order it again the next time we go!
We have eaten here twice now and were impressed by the food. The setting looks very casual at first glance, but the food Is refined, interesting, and very well executed. A very good value. I learned on this last visit the restaurant is owned and run by a local family. Happy to give them repeat business!
Too much meat, not a diverse enough menu.
Excellent food. Wines by the glass were well-selected and a good value. Foodies will be happy!
We were greatly appreciative to have a new brunch place in downtown San Carlos. Menu was limited, which btw, I like, and all our choices were excellent.
My wife and I went for our wedding anniversary. Nice, quiet and intimate ambiance. Good food from a simple, unpretentious, but nice menu. We felt quite good about the attentive service. Engaged in conversation with the owner about the space, menu, the dished we had. All in all a very good experience.
