Three Restaurant & Bar
The beverage program takes a backseat to none. Eight rotating craft beers, hand-crafted cocktails, and a first-class wine program.

The food and atmosphere was excellent. Our waiter and the other staff that served us were great.
Food and cocktails were excellent. Our party of 6 enjoyed every dish and every drink we ordered. Service was ok and attentive. The fried cheese appetizer was a crowd-pleaser. We had to return our NY Steaks once (2 orders) because medium rare came out medium well, but the server was apologetic and took it back right away.
Truly an awesome experience every time
Food is OK. Used to be much better. Was the only place we could make a reservation at our desired time. Would not rush back to eat there.
Met a friend here for brunch. Service was excellent and they were very patient when my friend was very late. The bacon bytes are to die for. Salmon Benedict was a bit salty; however, maybe I should have know it would be as it was made with smoked salmon. We really enjoyed our meal and the service. The only down side was that parking in that area is a bit dicey. It's a very busy area.
Onion Soup was really good... However I also had a signature dish - Fried Chicken and Waffle sandwich and the was not very good. chick was good but the waffle was cold and soft not crispy. The potatoes that came with the dish where also cold.. My friend had the corn beef hash and she said it was really good.
So Yes, have the soup and the corn beef hast, but skip the chicken and waffle sandwich.
Great selection of food-Brunch available all day which is nice!
First time for brunch crab Benedict is awesome eggs cooked perfectly
Good atmosphere! Food was delicious and the desserts were out of this world. Will go again!
Love this place.
I joined a friend for a long, late lunch during a weekday, and found Three to be quiet and inviting. I ordered the Nicoise salad, which was substantive, fresh and delicious. My colleague ordered the chilaquiles and found them to be flavor-packed and delightfully filling. The micheladas were phenomenal - some of the best we've had. Couple the excellent food with the outstanding service from the attentive staff, and I would easily go back to Three again. In fact, I'm taking my wife there on a date tomorrow!
Customer service was lacking. Waitress looked like she just woke up from a nap. Not engaged and not excited/enthused to be there. Food was bland. Ordered porcini spaghetti and needed salt, pepper, and chili flakes.
The stacked chicken and watermelon salad were both excellent, and more flavorful than any I have had in some time,
We had a celebration with 2 kids and 5 adults. Everything went well, food and service. It was hard to hear one another, however. We had a large round table and the noise level was just too high. Otherwise, I would recommend.
Last time we went there for dinner, the food was excellent but we cannot enjoy it. We were seated on a table right next to the west facing window on a very hot day. The waiter did not make any effort to help, after we complained. They refused to close down the curtain further, or move us to cooler table.
Therefore 4 stars for food, but 1 star for service.
Good looking menu, but the food did not measure up. Additions service was lacking. Not a busy night. Two at the table were still eating our appetizer/salads, and the main courses were delivered. I offer to keep them warm. The server was actually motioning as is she wanted us to move the food we were still eating out of the way so she could put down the plates. On getting home, my wife found she had grease spots on her pants from the seat cushion. Too many good restaurants in San Mateo to eat here again.
Horrible food quality.
Appreciate that they serve brunch during the weekdays, a plus for me. The food was good, service could step up a bit, though I might return if I felt it would deliver upon my expectations. It could they were having an off day, though I had to get the staffs attention which took roughly 10 mins and everyone there had already been taken care of...... and it was not busy?
Awesome they never disappoint. All the staff are great
I have been coming to Three Restaurant for the last 3 years. The food, service and atmosphere have been very good and very consistent. It's my go to restaurant in San Mateo.
Great food, good service and quiet table by kitchen
Limited menu - especially salads
Three Restaurant & Bar is a terrific restaurant to meet a friend for lunch, enjoy drinks after work or to have a great dinner with family. The food is delicious, the ambiance is great and service is excellent! I can’t wait to return!
We’ve been going to Three and formerly Astaria for years. The food and service were good but not great.
not impressed with the look and set up of the restaurant. cheap blinds on the window, nor table cover, just a regular place nothing for special occasions or date night. but most of our food was good except for the stacked chicken which was the specialty of the house and it was over cooked and burnt.
We walked in and the host was rude we get to our seat and our server goes to another table that was there after us to serve them. When she gets to us she is rude and we felt rushed to give her our drink order. She only checked on us once but checked on the table next to us multiple times. Let it be known there where not a lot of tables in her area.
By far this was the worst experience I have at any restaurant and me and my husband will not be returning.
Nice design & ambience. Food is solid and service is friendly & prompt
Great food! Chicken wings, cauliflower, pork tacos, all great appetizers. Fried chicken entree stellar! Loud so be prepared to,yell through your dinner.
The food was wonderful as was the service. I would recommend everyone to dine here. Thank you for a lovely evening, Three.
Some of what we ordered was good, but there we some items (including the crab cakes) that were not.
The place was busy and, although there seemed to be plenty of staff, yet I felt we were not very well served.
The food was delicious! We had breakfast for Fathers Day and I loved the fact that we were not tied into a costly brunch menu.
Decided to give this place another chance, once again they proved the service needs work. Food is great, service not so much.
Service & food consistently good. Down side was noice level. Difficult to carry on a conversation
Good brunch in the area
Service was a little off. We had early reservation so it was not busy. We had to look for our server for everything we needed. Not our usual experience.
I will definitely be coming back here! I love the ambiance. The staff was very attentive and friendly. The food was super flavorful and fresh. I couldn't have asked for more.
I made a birthday reservation for 7 people at 1:30. Was told that the kitchen closes at 2:00. Asked for coffee at the end of our meal and they said they couldn’t brew anymore. Never again
Service was rushed
Dishes served too hot
Food and recommended wines mediocre
Not worth the money
The food was amazing! Definitely would recommend this to friends and will be coming back. Friendly staff too ❤️
Good food, approachable menu in a central location in San Mateo
