Odeum, the Owner Sal and Chris Ward never fail to please!
There were 3 of us. The ambient was very nice and the food very good. The service was very good as well. Its a fine dining restaurant and pricey accordingly. So for a special occasion or just a fine dinner this is one of the best places to visit in Morgan Hill.
From the moment we walked in to the time we left the service, decor, friendliness, pleasant personalities, and extremely professional service.
The food presentation was inviting, artistic, creative and original.
We had the swordfish appetizer. Every bite was delicious and unique in every way. From presentation to each delightful bite.
Next was the aruegala cucumber salad. I was amazed how the cucumber worked so well with the aruegala. The combined flavor was devine.
Then the luscious, perfectly sheared skirt steak arrived. The aroma alone started up my taste buds. The tenderness and sauce that was drizzled over the top was scrupulous.
The wine, an incredible Paso Robles Cab was a robust, palatable choice for our meal.
The bartender was making artistic original cocktails. I wish I could have tried all of them. That will not be a problem since I live an hour away and plan to return often.
Thank you Odeum for your delicious creative menu.
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.
Service was very slow.
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.
The food was great. My husband ordered steak with grilled vegetables and mashed potatoes and I got a chicken with risotto dish. They were delicious! The food portion was worth the money we paid. Good food good service!
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!
Service sucked, when the food came it was cold. We boxed it up and walked out and stiffed the waiter. We would never go back!
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.
Totally enjoyed our meals. Kelsey was a great server, and very accommodating. The sides that accompanied the entree were unique and delicious. We will definitely be back.
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.
Another great experience for my wife's birthday. Thank you Odeum. If they have the mushroom bisque soup... You must try it.
The food was tasty but took a very long time to come out. The waiter was super friendly, always had a smile, but was working so hard he was sweating. It appears that they need to hire more kitchen and wait staff for Sunday brunch.
It was our second time for brunch and it was great again. Food and service was wonderful.
Another wonderful dinner at Odeum. Love the atmosphere and the food is fantastic. Extensive wine list is sure to please the biggest wine critic.
Odeum is a fantastic place. Food is always outstanding and staff is the best!
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.
