We have been going here frequently, but the last 3 times our experience was really bad. The waiter seems new and untrained. She was feeling overwhelmed with pretty much anything we asked. Such as a coffee refill, butter for the bread. The quality of food is also going down. I am personally disappointed because I used to love this place. After 3 consecutive bad experiences, I don’t think we will be going back too soon.

The best thing about this place is that was the only one on Santana row without a long wait. The hostess was very welcoming and pleasant. The waitstaff was rushed and not attentive. The food was mediocre not served as ordered & A bit overpriced for what it was. I ordered flatbread and added chicken for $11 (total $27) and it was about four pieces of over cooked chicken. If you’re looking for a quick easy place to get in and out of I would recommend it but overall it was just mediocre at best

We went for NYE dinner. We’ve celebrated the new year there before. The place was not very busy as in past years. My husband had lamb and it was not very good. Our first course was not up to their standard meal. I had the filet, mashed potatoe and broccoli rab was great ! The desserts were excellent!

Great appetizers and good place to sit outside and people watch. Enjoyed Kayla our server who was attentive and ensured we were taken care of with all of our questions and requests. I also appreciated Kayla attention to our teenage sons requests and questions.

The food was a hit and miss w/our party of 5. The bacon omelette was nicely done w/decent size pieces of bacon despite the waiter explained it poorly. Eggs Benedict was good as well but could've used more hollandaise sauce. The spuds that came with it needed to be crisped up and leave out the filler of green bell peppers (way too much!). The fish used for the fish and chips was very poor quality fish and the batter was way too heavy. Very poorly done! Would never order that dish again according to two at the table that ordered it. The burger was very good second time around as first time it was well done despite request was for medium rare! Three of five said they would not go back.

This was my third time here. My first time was a great experience from start to finish. The second time, the service was sorely lacking -- had to ask to order drinks after being seated for more than 20 minutes and then asked for the drinks to be served another 15 minutes later. That was a bummer because I was treating a friend from out of state for her birthday. I went back this time for a holiday brunch with friends, hoping for the best. The food and Bloody Mary's were excellent. Service was not awesome, but it was not horrible either. I will go back another time.

By the way, the Build Your Own Bloody Mary menu (available weekends only) is phenomenal.

Have been here multiple times & had excellent service. Came 2 hrs before catching a movie. Restaurant wasn't busy; however, our waitress, was SLOW. Our food finally came 1/2 hr before we had to leave!! Found out they were short-staffed; however, waitress should have communicated that to us. We told her of our movie plans. Will come again but hopefully, not the same waitress!!
