great views, which is why you go. Food was very good, but expensive. Large portions. Slow service.... we were there for several hours. dining area is cramped, therefore noisy. All in all we have a good evening, albeit costly and long. I would recommend for special occasions only.
Fabulous evening! All we ordered was excellent: shishito peppers and mushroom appetizers to share, beef medallion, pork and veal chops were awesome. Our waiter Charlie was attentive, fun and at hand when we needed him for more wine etc.
Great place also for views over the peninsula and Bay, ask for a window table....
Everything was good!!
We've been dining at the Vans for over thirteen years and will keep on going. It is our favorite spot for oysters Rockerfeller and coctails. Gene Rice and Alice Bollard
Friendly hostess, the oyster Rockefeller and the sand dabs are to die for . The New York steak was cooked to perfection and the service was excellent. Great views of the City and the bay.
Service and hostess were not very friendly but food was really good
Always a good meal at The Vans. The staff was attentive. They made sure we were enjoying our meal. They didn't disappear like they do in some restaurants. Great time.
Excellent variety on the menu and tasted great! I’ve been there several times and recommend it.
Our reservations were for 7:30pm, but did not get seated until almost 8pm.
The noise level was high and everyone was shouting. The service was good.
We celebrated a birthday at Van's On The Hill, and this was our first dining experience at this establishment. They did not disappoint! The food, service and view were amazing. We will definitely be returning to Van's in the near-future. This is a great local find, hidden up on a hill that I wish we had not waited so long to try.
I am a previous customer but it was the first time for my family. Everything was excellent as always. We especially loved the stuffed pork chop. Service was great and the view was to die for. Affordable wine list and desserts.
We always enjoy dining at The Van's and have for many years. Consistently great steaks, friendly service and great views. Not cheap but you get what you pay for.
I have been here multiple times and always had a good experience. This time however, we got seated, close to 25 minutes later, only when I flagged a server down we were able to place a drink order. The extremely poor service continued throughout the entire meal, the server didn't return to take food order for at least another 20 minutes, one person in the party was given an incorrect meal and what came back was the same food re-plated but this time cold.
Even though the manager was visible on the floor, not one apology for the mistakes, the tardy service or the overall experience was uttered from manager or server. It was extremely disappointing to say the least and as much as I enjoy this restaurant I will think twice before returning.
I work in the business, I get it, if folks call sick you are short staffed, it is hard to keep the service at the top level you normally have it. But if it is that bad, close a section, turn folks away, do anything except what you did which was seat people that you were not prepared to be serve and then not even acknowledge the disaster that unfolds.
We always enjoy The Vans. Good cocktails at the bar and very good dinner salads. The fried prawn entree was excellent but, the sand dabs were sparse for the higher price they now charge for dinner.
First time having the scallop patties. Oh my. So delicate and tasty. Great tasting tartar sauce too.
We went there for Valentine's and the food was wonderful. I would go there again.
The Van's Restaurant is one of the best restaurant in the Silicon Valley. Best service, delicious food, nice view of the bay. I definitely come here again
Very attractive & cheerful. Very nice festive direct/indirect lighting. Good parking. Excellent bar.
Excellent food. Good service. Not over-priced.
Will be back.
Get the F Mignon & lobster ~ Wow!
We had a lovely evening after having been frazzled at work all day. We both had a fabulous Manhattan and the fabulous prime rib dinner. The setting is peaceful and didn’t feel rushed.
Love going to The Van’s. Nice atmosphere and the staff is friendly. I would like to see different vegetables, maybe some broccoli instead of green beans.
We love the Vans! The food is always terrific, and the service is beyond compare. Everyone who works there goes overboard to cater to your every whim, and are just so friendly! Oh, and the view is fantastic!
Great views, good food, nice service. It is a great place to stop in on a Friday night for the happy hour.
Very disappointing. Service was slow and 2 of us actually got sick from the food. Probably won't return.
Great food, ambiance and service! A complete neighborhood gem! Gorgeous views as well! A must go to!
Been here more than 3 times. Food has been good which is a plus since my 14 year old daughter is a picky eater. We weren’t as dressed up as other patrons (mostly Caucasian) so it may affected how our waiter treated us. He took our drink orders and when they arrive we attempted to get our appetizer order but told to wait. He told us to order desserts stating they were closing which was around 10pm- there were 3 other tables occupied. When the check came, he gave us the wrong one and stated that check costs more.
Funny that my husband had the same feeling as I did -perception that we were second class and David (Latin guy) was irritated by us (we’re Asian).
Don’t know if we will return. If we do, hopefully, David isn’t working that night.
Good food with an outstanding view. Full bar and the service is more than acceptable.
Great experience. Our group enjoyed everything about our dinner.
My girlfriends and I LOVE The Vans! We get excellent service from David and Lisa and are never disappointed!!
Wonderful evening with friends. Our waiter, Tony, was very friendly and added to the enjoyment of our evening.
The most amazing prime rib my husband has ever had. My salmon was incredible . It’s our new favorite spot .
The deviled eggs are so delicious they warrant the drive all they way from South San Jose. Beautiful views and great ambiance.
It was our Anniversary, delicious meal, as always! And they brought us a very nice lemon dessert on a Happy Anniversary plate! Nice touch! We love the Vans, we’ll be back for sure!
Don’t order the Monte Cristo.
The Vans always does a great job excellent meal. You have to try the surf and turf special. Great job
Always a wonderful experience at The Vans. Great service, delicious food, and love the setting on the hill.
Food was terrible, ordered sage pork chops , but you could not taste pork as it was buried in sage.
Nothing to rave about this place except our waitress!
Always a good place to take out of Townes.
It was quiet when we got there but an hour later, downstairs was full. The filet medallions were good. The pork chop was slightly over cooked but still good. The wedge salad is large enough to share. We will eat there again.
My daughters and I had a wonderful time and delicious dinner. everything was Excellent.
Can’t believe I hadn’t been up there... just a treat for traditional San Francisco Bay Area history and the dining happened to be excellent. Go.
