Food was mediocre as was the service. Our waiter was apparently also doubling as the bartender, so was not attentive at all. He forgot to bring some of the food items totally, the ones that were brought out were done at different times (half the table got their entrees several minutes before the other half), side dishes showed up 10 mins later, spoons to serve the side dishes 10 mins after that, and only when we asked, water was never refilled, getting salt took forever, soup was cold, etc., etc. Prices are pretty high for the quality of food. Table was dirty. The place was dead, and I see why.

I expected great things from this place. Unfortunately I was very disappointed. My ribeye was not hot. It was barely warm. My wife scallops risotto had no flavor. I would not recommend this place. To begin, Requesting a seat inside was difficult even though it was 2pm and they had several tables inside. In addition, I requested for my kids plate ASAP and I ordered it as soon as I sat down. It came after my food came. My 5 year old was starving.

We were so excited to celebrate mother's day here, but disappointed in the service. We had a 11:45 reservation, place was empty and we asked a few times if we could be seated outside. There were SEVERAL empty tables outside in the sun, and we were told that those tables were already "reserved". Instead, we got sat in a back, shaded, cold corner, dirty, uneven tables. After our meal, the tables in the sun were STILL open and were never used. Super disappointed in management who couldn't accommodate a simple request. If it was busy, I would understand, but it was EMPTY. No wonder why it was the only restaurant with open reservations on mother's day. Will not be returning

The staff was rude. We were seated and no one gave us water or asked us what we wanted to drink. The staff kept looking at us, but never came over. After 25 minutes of waiting we decided to leave because we felt uncomfortable given that we hadn’t even met our waiter and the staff kept staring at us. Mind you this was the day before Mother’s Day and I was taking my mom and sister out. They weren’t terribly busy either so it was a bit confusing as to why not one single person had helped us. This was an awful experience. I’d recommend going literally anywhere else. We ended up at a restaurant right next door and had a much much much better experience.

First the bartender grabbed the ice with his bare hands!! Only ones at the bar and took over 10 minutes to get served! Had to send my steak back. Second one not cooked any better. Sprouts were tough. Very disappointed!! It was a birthday dinner. Sad at those prices!! Will not be returning!

Poor service. Waitress seemed really unpleasant. I ordered my food to be prepared without sesame seeds and it still came with sesame seeds. I sent my order back asking for it to not have sesame seeds, 30 minutes later it came back to me with charred sesame seeds all over it. I will not go back.

The dinner was very pricey. The service was mediocre, we had to ask for our drinks a few times. We ordered dessert which never came. Instead, the bill was presented. Wait staff was spread to thin. Appetizers were served after salad.

First, food was very good. Service? Was seated at appropriate time, and then we ordered appetizers and meal to share.
Didn't know I had to use the same plate from appetizer for main dinner. No new plates? Then we ordered the most excellent Ribeye, but had to ask for steak knives, and with the two sides, (Green Beans and Sautéed Mushrooms) they came out in their own little skillet bowls, but no separate spoon to dish them out with. Place was not that busy, and the senior server was training a new server. Speed of delivery to table was 'ok' but the quality of the service to be honest was much less than what I had expected having been there a couple times before. Hopefully next time will be better.

We had reservations for five and they tried to seat us at two different tables. It took a long time for them to give access to the menu. Our waiter was great but the hostesses had no clue and put a damper on our night out with an out of town guest. Tables seated after us were served drinks and menus long before we were. 👎🏻👎🏻

Ridiculous indoor seating restictions. Upon arrival with reservations for two with indoor seating, we were led to a table so small it would have been impossible to place our food, appetizers and drinks on it without it being a circus like balancing act. At the time, only three tables inside were occupied. When we asked for a larger table, we were told that all the other tables were reserved for parties of three or more. I found this interesting as the other three (larger) tables which were occupied only had two people seated at each table.

Only after we said that the table was unacceptable were we offered seating at a larger table. Interestingly enough, throughout our stay only three tables were occupied in the mostly empty restaurant. Perhaps we did not "look" like the type of clientele they preferred to serve? The food was good and the server did a good job but we won't go back.

Cold, lack of ambiance inside. Lights were set on super bright, maybe because half the chandeliers had dead bulbs in them.

Food quality was mediocre at best. There has to be much better in Morgan Hill.

My reservations was cancelled by the manager due to forgetting my mask. My friend had her mask went to the front answered the required question as I stayed away from all guests. More than 10 feet. (All guest at tables and around had no masks on)She came over to me handed me her mask I went up to answer the questions. I was first told masks were required to step in to answer questions. I explained my friend did, and now i am there with mask to answer question. The the manager said Santa Clara county required . Both to be masked didn’t make sense we were both masked to answer questions stood more than 6feet away( we are in the red tier) the manager needs to review county rules outdoors. Maybe just say that was the restaurant rule instead of Lie. When you answer your guests you probably shouldn’t look up in the air. I already knew you were telling a fib. We both walked across the street had a great dinner . The walked to another restaurant where we listened to music and had drinks. No issues at either. I believe in masks and wear them regularly, but the reason for turning someone away for the reason giving was wrong.

Service was super slow. We were there 2 hours in total and they were at 25 percent capacity. I can only imagine where they are at 50 or more capacity. We waited 20 minutes before being acknowledged. We made reservations and stated it was our wedding anniversary and they didn’t say a thing about that at all. Why even ask then? Food was OK but my medium rare ribeye was over cooked to medium well. I could make a better baked potato. They were out of the pork belly appetizer. They came out with a Togo order for us and then another plate of something we didn’t order. Everyone was polite and the social distancing was acceptable. Probably won’t go again for the prices. Sorry, I hate to give this kind of review.

My husband, teen daughter and I went for Easter dinner. The hostesses were not very friendly, which was surprising because it was pretty dead in there. The waiter was OK, but nothing special. The QR code on the table was miniature, which made it difficult to open the menu and when asked for the wine list it was light colored paper with grey very small print so it was essentially impossible to read. We tried a flashlight on our phone as well as taking a picture and blowing it up, but it was still very difficult to read. We shared the ribeye and it was OK, but nothing fabulous. My daughter got the chicken with sticky rice and the chicken was overcooked. For dessert, we ordered the chocolate chip cookies and vanilla ice cream or frozen milk as they called it. The scoop of ice cream was very small and the cookies were pretty large although they did not taste homemade at all. Kind of disappointing overall considering the prices.

This restaurant has gone down hill. We ordered many items, however the ribeye at $46.00 was tough and not cooked right. The steak knife would not cut through a rare steak, they had to cut it for us in the kitchen.

We ordered three dishes of the Pappardelle pasta, which did not tell you that it had mushrooms . Each dish had approximately 1/2 cup mushroom in the dish. Not our favorite and should have been noted .

We used to love this restaurant and not sure what happened. Very expensive meal too .

We ordered the scallops which only had three small scallops. Not worth it and probably won’t go back .

Our waiter, Cameron, was very attentive and timed his arrivals to check in on us, accordingly. Outgoing and friendly, very professional and considerate of our privacy of conversation.

The food was amazing, and affordable.

The presentation of our dishes was sub par? They could have been a little more presentable in display? But if you’re only focusing on the dish and it’s flavor, then ignore the former statement.

Overall great food, great service, and very affordable.
