We didn't dine here but the bartender made the best mojito and the music was a live salsa band. Good times and great ambience!

I had a memorable sea bass dish. The chef did an excellent job - taste and presentation was excellent. The portions were generous, we took left overs home. The atmosphere and garden setting at night is absolutely lovely. The manager was friendly and made every effort to make us feel welcome and valued.

The outdoor garden dining area provided and incredibly beautiful atmosphere and ambiance; with a very friendly and attentive staff; and absolutely deliciously prepared food, we had the catch of the day, sea bass, and the tuna; the roving minstrels, 2 guitars and standup bass provided awesome vocal harmonies. Couldn't have asked for a nicer and more beautiful, romantic birthday evening.

We had a reservation for 6pm. Were seated at the best table on the top level overlooking the lower patio. The sea bass special of the day was outstanding as were the drinks and wine selection.

Went recently with my husband and had read the prior reviews. The setting is a lovely courtyard. The food was just OK and VERY expensive. The staff who seated us were visibly frustrated when we asked for a different area. We were rushed through our meal, they couldn't clear our table fast enough! Would not recommend this restaurant,there are so... More

Was in San Jose for the Thursday night art walk and was looking for a restaurant for dinner and chose this one due to the high ratings. It didn't disappoint. Had the caesar salad and the sea bass which was cooked perfectly over a delicious mushroom risotto. My friend had the beet and goat cheese salad and the lamb chops.... More
