Overpriced food and small portions. Loud, and we were seated all the way in the back corner of the restaurant. Will not be back.

Three for lunch at 12:30. Had Opentable reservation and even though the restaurant was pretty full we were seated on time. We had the Salmon, the sole and the Shrimp Risotto. Everyone raved at how good there lunch was. Two glasses of Ice Tea and a draft beer finished off the meal. My only downside was I thought the per glass price of wine was to high so I passed and had the beer.

My daughter and son in law and I had Christmas Eve dinner at Steamers. The drinks and food and desserts were delicious. The blackberry lemon drop was delicious. They have a very good wine list. The service was superb although they did have a problem with their computer which slowed down the pacing of the meal a bit. Bradley the waiter and Kaitlyn the barmaid and the busser did an excellent job.All of the staff there were friendly and in a holiday mood. I enjoyed my pistachio crusted salmon, my daughter had their excellent cast iron halibut and my son in law had their delicious short ribs.

I go to Steamers on a regular basis because of the quality of the food and great service. They will go out of their way to make sure you are satisfied with your meal and will go off the menu for special circumstances. Being from the Mid West I'm particular about my steaks and seldom will order one in a restaurant. Steamers is the exception. Their New York strip is outstanding and even though I order the Sea Bass the majority of the time, I found myself going to the New York strip a little more. Great location and atmosphere and friendly staff makes for a very enjoyable experience.

I have been to steamers in the past and have been quite happy. This visit I found the menu to be quite limited and found it difficult to decide on something that I wanted to have. I would like to see some changes to the menu. Additionally they took a reservation for 11:30 AM, but they were unable to seat us at that time. So we had about a 15 minute wait. Service was good , But the food was just a limited for me for lunch.

Booked a Saturday night for a birthday celebration. Not busy in the area (surprising), but busy in the restaurant. However, they took us in earlier than scheduled. Great service and a great selection on the menu.

For appetizers, we had the crispy prawns. Yummy in this sweet/spicy sauce. Only comes with two (but large) prawns, so order accordingly. I ordered the sea bass - very tasty. Others ordered the NY steak - juicy and flavorful - you can taste the seared outside. Scallops and saffron - a bit salty for me, but scallop was tender/juicy. Steamer's Linguine - Shrimp & mushroom pasta - did not try, but looked good. We brought our own wine ($20 corkage) and was worth it considering a good Cab is $25/glass. Because it was for a birthday, they provide a free gelato for the birthday girl. The rest shared a creme brulee. Yummy.

Overall a great experience and great dining. Would come back again.

All was great. The choice of meals for the four of us were some of our favorites. We did
have oysters and calamari as appetizers. The only problem was that we waited a long
time before the entrees came after appetizers were cleared from table. Not sure what
the problem was as waiter said nothing. Nothing negative on waiter though.

Never disappoints. Great fresh fish, the house salad and clam chowder are amazing. Beautiful bar with great ambiance. Greg, the manager is very welcoming and makes you feel as if you are family. Attentive servers who are always willing to please. Their sour dough bread is amazing. Our grandson loves the steak and they do a terrific preparation......if you get the french fries as well......you have a perfect meal served in a wonderful fish restaurant. There is something for everyone.

We decided to split a Salad which we ‘be done before since with entrees desert and after diner drinks, it is all too much to eat. Very disappointed to the point that it took away from the rest of the dinner. They charged us an extra $2 for splitting and the split salad barely covered the bottom of the salad plates. Don’ t think the unsplit salad was worth the $12 anyway. Waitress should have told us it wasn’t worth splitting to began with.

Arrived very late for lunch and were the last to leave. However, we were greeted nicely and were made welcome. Our server was gracious, skilled and never hurried us, although she could have due to our lateness. Our meals, as we expected from many previous visits, were excellent. We shall certainly return soon -- with a better eye on our clock!

We don't live in California, but we come to Silicon Valley once or twice a year for conferences, and we always make a point to come to Steamer's Grillhouse for their brilliant Prawn BLT. I think it's the best sandwich ever. I'm not exaggerating. Best with a nice glass of Chablis, but also great with iced tea (thank you, thank you, thank you, Steamer's Grillhouse for making iced tea that is just black tea, and not with some fruit flavor added!).

Their fries are good, but this trip I substituted a small Caesar salad for the fries, and the salad was outstanding: great dressing on astonishingly good romaine. I can't buy romaine that is anywhere near that fresh in Texas, and it was a revelation.

Appreciated most of all, the moderate noise level for a Sunday night (partially chosen because we hoped the noise level would be moderate!)
Next in appreciation was that my dinner selection - the special pasta of the night - was the very best linguine vongole I've ever had! The broth was so good I was collecting every last drop with the spoon that came along with the dinner after all else was gone. Our friends really liked their entrees as well!
