Open and inviting. Innovative and energetic. Playful surprises are found throughout the menu, as well as the restaurant itself. The menu has been designed to give you options, is perfect for sharing and you are encouraged to order however the mood strikes you, so don’t be shy about ordering more of… Well, anything. Salads and pastas created with greens and veggies from the rooftop garden should please locavores. While burger lovers will appreciate the balance of the house grind that blends brisket, short rib and sirloin. Between bites be sure to take a look at the beautiful, “Living Wall”. A wall of plants and herbs living and growing inside the restaurant itself. Take a peak at the “Peninsula Room”, an homage to the Hotel Benjamin Franklin located directly in front the exhibition kitchen.
The beverage program takes a backseat to none. Eight rotating craft beers, hand-crafted cocktails, and a first-class wine program.

We got there just before the kitchen closed, and the waiters were very patient and helpful in helping us decide what to get. Half of our party was late because they had to tend to their newborn. The food and drinks were delicious. My wife and I have come many times, but we just brought our two friends for the first time and they really enjoyed it. We are moving back to the east coast, but this is and will be one of our top 3 go to spots in the Bay Area. I think this restaurant is underrated and unique around here.

On the up side, the space is nice. However, inattentive staff dressed like they were going to be cleaning horse stalls and really disappointing food...I mean how can any one completely screw up scrambled eggs?! We won’t be back and will tell anyone who asks to definitely avoid. Too bad, San Mateo could use a decent breakfast place and Three is 100% not one.

My husband were at Three for breakfast. Food was delicious, lots to choose from on the menu. Our waitress and staff were friendly and great. Will go back to try dinner.

Wait staff was trying to turn the table over very quickly. We were still trying to finish up our drinks and brunch but they kept coming over and brought the bill over as well while we were still chatting and finishing up. I was also disappointed how I asked the waiter to write no capers on my smoked salmon Benedict but instead it came with no hollandaise sauce. Also towards the end of our meal when they kept coming up to us, we were only at our table for like 45 minutes max.

We had a great experience here. Awesome food and great service. My boyfriend arrived early and was seated right away and offered a drink. Our server was great and the food came out fast and tasted delicious. Would absolutely come back again.

It was way too noisy to hooks a conversation. They need some upholstery.

The restaurant was so loud that we could not hear one another speak. We were a table of five and could only hear the person next to one another. Very frustrating.

Wow, they have gone down a notch or two since previous times we have eaten here. My wife ordered a lamb burger and it arrived with no garnish, over cooked, small, on a large plate by itself. I ordered a pawn mushroom pasta. You have to wash porcini mushrooms very carefully -- well they didn't so my pasta was full of sand. Beet salad was very good as was my son's burger. Waiter was fairly clueless, offered no amends.

Was here to celebrate a birthday. Service was just right not intrusive but came by just enough to make sure our water glasses were filled and we didn't need anything else. Food was delicious and servings were big enough where we had leftovers. Would definitely come back here.

The pastas we had was nice and chewy and quite tasty. However the fried chicken was poorly done with lots of batter but dry pieces of chicken inside. Kentucky fried chicken tastes so much better and a fraction of the cost. The service was excellent, but the food left much to be desired. I wouldn't come back again for dinner with all the other choices there are in downtown San Mateo.
