    It has been over 2.5 years since I had the chance to dine at LaFontana. Very nice to see some of the same service team. They greeted me by name and helped with a very professional service for my business lunch for our party of 5. Hope to get back again soon.

    We came for our Valentine’s Day dinner. La Fontana is inside the Hilton Santa Clara lobby. It’s more tailored for business lunch for people from the various tech companies nearby, not for an upscale dinner experience. That’s our expectation and that’s exactly what we found. We had a pris-fixed dinner for $55 each, including appetizer, main course and dessert. We are not impressed with the appetizers, crab cake and salad, but we liked the lamp and duck main courses, as well as the cheesecakes for dessert. The wine selection was OK, priced a little high. Service was OK but the servers seem a little rushed although the dinner crowd wasn’t large.... Overall, we were there for 1 1/2 hour and had a good experience.

    It was Thanksgiving evening. It was not disclosed that it would only offer a few Thanksgivings items. Those items were not great. Had I known it, I would have gone somewhere else.

    Service was fantastic and food delicious. I held a business meeting there for a large party and the only complaint I have is that the staff kept rolling large trash bins and other things in the hallway next to our table. The rolling made such a ruckus it was hard to hear the conversation. They should put down mats on the marble floor to dampen the sound.

    We went for a important business meal. The service was amazing. Truly five star. The noise was terrible due to a very loud wedding. We sat on the patio which was better but not pretty. It was still worth it because the food and service made up for it. I would very much go again.

    My meal (shrimp capellini) was overcooked. The pasta was stuck together and not enough olive oil to toss. The rest of my group did enjoy their meals. Perhaps just an off dish.

    We went to Mother's Day Brunch. Our table was pretty much ignored. We did not get refills on orange juice (we did not want mimosas) or water, and our plates were not cleared when we went back to the buffet for a second helping. We were seated at a table behind a building post so perhaps that was why we were not checked on. The food in the buffet was pretty good, but no eggs benedict were offered. Few choices for desserts compared to other brunches we have experienced. There were cute balloon sculptures near the buffet tables, which made the area festive. For the very expensive price (with tax and tip included it came to about $75 a person), we expected much more in terms of service and variety of food offerings.

    For cocktails, we had a cucumber refresher and Toki Fashion. The drinks are a little on the sweet side and we were not able to detect any actual spirits (Hendricks and Toki Whisky were expected). Besides that, presentation and flavor were fine. The sesame seared ahi was too fishy for my wife and a little spicy for me, but the seaweed salad that accompanied it was good. Nice presentation. The Roasted carrot soup was excellent. I ordered the cowboy steak, medium rare. For a 16 oz bone-in ribeye, it was a thin slice...well under 1 inch thick with a light pink center instead of the warm red center I was expecting. A little fatty, but flavor and texture were good. The dining room environment was nothing special...standard hotel restaurant layout. Noise levels were lower than average, in part because so few other diners were present. Overall, the dining experience was okay, but we've definitely had more enjoyable ~$250 meals elsewhere.

    Was La Fontana up to the Thanksgiving dinner challenge? Sort of. The prix fixe menu was limited, which is fine, but …. The arugula and shaved brussels sprouts salad was dressed like cole slaw, which was not very appealing and not something the menu hinted at. The turkey and prime rib were fine, but shared the same mashed potato and dressing sides (although one had green beans and the other had brussels sprouts). Desserts were accompanied by a very pleasant vanilla ice cream, one of the higher points. Service was mostly good, but perhaps because of Thanksgiving scheduling, not top notch: a server brought entrées to our table when we were still eating our soup and salad, but it turned out that there were not actually ours, they were meant for another table.
