 (San Francisco)·Dined 3 days ago

As we’ve experienced before, Odeum has some amazing food. You can absolutely tell that a Michelin Star caliber chef is at the helm, his flavor combinations and presentation are just amazing! We were there for a Valentine’s Day dinner, so the menu was pre fixe with a few choices for each course. Everything was delicious, but I found one thing kind of annoying. When I made the reservation, I was informed that the menu was pre fixe at $100 per person. Ok, got it. Once we got there, however, several of the entree items had significant “additional” fees if you wanted it. (For example, if you want the Surf & Turf, it’s an additional $25 etc). When they say pre fixe, it should be a set amount. Since there were such limited options to chose from, having several of the 5 or 6 items being an additional charge was really annoying. It felt a little sneaky to me. Maybe that’s standard practice, I don’t do many pre fixe meals due to some food allergies...but I didn’t like that. Other than that, it was a wonderful meal, and we had fun. We will be back during regular service.

Our lunch was delicious, a bit skimpy on the portions as I barely had a 4 ounce piece of salmon. For $16.00, it was basically a salad with a tiny portion of salmon. My husband hate chicken on a skewer and there was very little chicken. The presentation of the food was beautiful and the service was good but we both walked away hungry. It would be a nice touch to serve complimentary bread at a fine restaurant like this with the prices they charge?

Just added Odeum to our portfolio of fine restaurants in Morgan Hill. It's got everything the discriminating diner could wish for - intriguing ambiance, exceptional food and attentive staff.

Food is delicious! Ambiance was not up to par.
Our table wobbled, setting at table on a piece of butcher block paper does not work for me. Table setting needs work! For the prices charged, needs a much better location!
We were put in the back room and it was HOT!!
Ordered a bottle of Rombauer and you were out!
I’d like to see Odeum were Prova is!

Great menu, good food but slow service on this night. Super slow. I have dined here before though and never had a problem with the service so maybe it was just an off night for them. I had the Mary's chicken and it was delicious. I've also had the New York and the chicken and waffles - both were very good as well.

Very good portions, nice presentation but everything was so salty, we couldn't really taste any of the fresh local ingredients or underlying seasoning. There were 4 of us and we each had a different entree. All 4 were so salty, none of us enjoyed our meal. Very heavy handed on salt which ruined the flavor of everything. The waiter was good but he was running all over the place and didn't really have time to attend to us well. Getting a second or third glass of water because of the salty food was almost impossible. No one came by to fill our glasses. We had to flag them down and wait. We will never go back. There are other restaurants in the area which offer up top rate, excellent food and service at more reasonable price. The michelin stars mean nothing to this place. We are all dumbfounded as to how they got such a high rating. Not the quality or service we were expecting.

Very expensive. We went last year and had the lamb chops and the food was really good, service was good, signature cocktail were creative and tasty. This time a friend had the schnitzel (if you’re used to German food, this isn’t it) and it was cold on one side warming up to hit on the other, my husband had skirt steak which he said was ok and I had Mexican jumbo prawns on risotto where the risotto was overdone and everything a bit on the side of too rich with Feta and cream. The signature drinks were a little lack luster. The service slower this time. For the price I wouldn’t go here again or recommend to a friend.

I moved away from Morgan Hill a little over year ago. I’ve dined at Odeum many times in the past. It usd to be a great place to go. However, upon returning this trip, it’s become tired and very reliant upon its past history. The food was lacking in taste and creativity — extremely over-priced for what I and my friends ordered. Everyone in my party agreed that there are many restaurants in Morgan Hill that now surpass Odeum.

The restaurant is one of the few upper end restaurants in the Morgan Hill area. The service was not very good at all. The waiter/bartender forgot to bring us our drinks and had to be reminded after 15 minutes. This was surprising because the restaurant was not very busy. The main courses took a long time to come out and were just average is flavor and plating.

When we ordered dessert it took a very long time and the dessert were bad. When we mentioned this to the server, he said that yes he knew that they were not going to be good because the main chef was off that night and the staff does not pay attention to detail and quality when he is not there.

It was very bad. And very expensive. And the wine selection by the glass is terrible.

We sat outside on a wintery cold night, but with the heat lamps it was very pleasant, I actually preferred it. The wait staff is top notch, the wine selection, very good. Price points, pretty expensive. I ordered a filet mignon medium rare, but requested that it be more on the rare side. The waitress assured me that they cook it toward the rare side anyway. When I got it, it was definitely medium. It was an expensive piece of meat. I should have sent it back, but didn't for some reason. A bottle of wine, two dinners and a tip = $200. Not sure it was really worth it.
The last time we went there (2 years before) the experience was similar with the main course. I thought it was just a fluke then. I'm sure they're better than that, but with the high price point, I'm not sure I will take a chance again.

This little gem nestled in the heart of Morgan Hill has been one of our favorites for a couple of years. We gave my parents a gift certificate for Christmas which gave us an excuse to tag along. My mother had the surf and turf special, father had chicken and waffles and my wife and I shared the 15 oz steak. EVERYTHING including our appitizer was exceptional. We will will surely return soon.

My 4th time here - 2nd time in the same month. Early dinner about 5 p.m. and the crowds soon arrived! Love, love, love the ambiance - festive and elegant. Can't beat it. Food was good - would have liked the crab cake warm (it was not - not sure if it was supposed to be? it was between lukewarm and on the cool side). Scallops were divine - salmon very good. Service was just o.k. - server was not very attentive or engaged. That was the one missing piece...would have made the whole experience excellent. Hence the 'fair' rating for service.

On a spur of the moment, two colleagues and I went there yesterday for lunch...a bit of a holiday lunch thing. The tzatziki which we had as an appetizer was not what I'm used to as it was more solid as opposed to creamy yogurt based and the pita bread that came with it seemed to have been grilled so it was firm, not soft. For our entrees, my gnocchi was excellent and my guests very much enjoyed their cavatelli and pork schnitzel entrees. The wine list was good, with some interesting off the beaten track recommendations. Our server Kelsey was excellent. The ambiance of the place was pleasant and overall things seemed to click and end up with a very pleasant lunch in relaxed friendly surrounds. I will definitely be going back.

Loved this place. This was our second visit and neither disappointed. I had the skirt steak which was delicious and my wife had the beet salad which was exceptional (never tasted beets that way). Our daughter and her friend shared a prime bone-in rib eye--also exceptional. I can understand why they received a Michelin star.

Folks - the service here is not the best for what you pay for.
We went in with a a party of 9 and was pretty much ignored for the first 10 min. No water service, no bread, not even a check in from the waiter.
Finally when he came we explained we needed 9 menus, and 1 more wine list. First of all a party of 9 with a reservation for over a week you would expect 9 settings and 9 menus..
Slow service through out. I actually had to think ahead to get more wine and beer for the table.
Food is good.

Our server was wonderful, made us feel welcome and special. As, we noticed, he did for everyone. Thank you for being in our town - you are a Diamond! We are so lucky to have such a find restaurant in Morgan Hill!
