Everything was great, from the food to the service, but there was a party going on in one of the party rooms that was a bit overzealous and loud. Other than that, it was a great night out.

I will start off by saying the service was fantastic, and the ambiance was lovely -- very pleasant. On my reservation, I had asked to be seated by the fireplace. When we arrived, we weren't seated anywhere near the fireplace and there were several tables open. The hostess checked us in and said, yes I see your reservation here. I'm certain she had to have seen my note requesting a table by the fire. I was a bit disappointed.

The food was delicious and the plate presentations were elegant. My husband and I had the 7 course chef's tasting menu. The only big downfall was the portions of each course. Every course was extremely small. We actually left feeling hungry, unfortunately. Although we enjoyed the flavors of each course and dish, the portion size would not bring us back. With a bill just under $350, you don't expect to leave hungry.

We were not aware that they'd changed the menu to courses only. Since we wanted a nice, light dinner that day, it was a bit of a push. Yet most of the dishes were excellent. Beignets were a bit heavy and they poured chocolate sauce without asking. It'd have been nice if we had the choice.

This is a great spot in San Mateo. It’s on top of Drager’s grocery store. We sat right away. Thomas was our server, he was nice and knowledgeable. The menu is prefix (s?). You either pick the 5 course winter menu or 3 courses. You can also have them pair wines with each course for $55 more. Between each course they provided amuse bouche (s?). Overall everything was great. It is very pricey tho.

My executive team members loved the set up as well as how attentive the restaurant team members were to them. I will most definitely use this restaurant for future business meals. Thank you!

Menu is very creative, but my soup was lukewarm and the duck was fine, nothing special. Panna cotta overdone, not that edible. I've eaten here before and it was really good, so this was sort of a disappointing night.

This was by far one of the worst meal I have ever had in this price range! Such a pity that great french cuisine spot got under new management and became a shame now.... I would not recommend- save your money and go elsewhere!

The evening meal was wonderful and our waiter, Thomas, was wonderful. We never lacked for anything. I highly recommend the restaurant and hope you get Thomas as your waiter when you try it!

Finally tried here for the first time. Friendly service, except for the GM. He brought our dishes over and was fairly silent in comparison with the rest of the staff - no greeting, no introduction to the two dishes he brought over. Maybe because it was on NYE? Though it wasn't crowded. Otherwise food was good, nice dish presentations.
