I walked in here by chance while in San Jose for the day and was really impressed by the entrées so looked it up on TripAdvisor while waiting for the main course and was not surprised to see it as one of the top restaurants in San Jose! The main course and desserts also lived up, all in all great food and I would go back anytime!

A great evening night out restaurant in downtown San Jose. The wait staff are helpful, attentive, but not hovering. The table service begins with bread and marinated olives. They have a good selection of wines and cocktails available. I like their wine flights which are a nice way to sample differing styles of similar wines. Do start with an appetizer. Their lobster/shrimp croquettes are recommended ad well as their cheese flambé (don't recall the name). The cheese dish is served topped with onions that are caramelized by pouring a Greek brandy flambé over the cheese. Not to be missed! My favorite entree is the lamb shank. It's melt in your mouth delicious! Their lamb chops are also excellent, The staff is attentive to diet or gluten free requirements also. My preferred dessert is their Greek beignets which are light honey covered fried dough with chocolate sauce. Nom! This is one of the nicest addictions to downtown (not Santana Row). You''ll enjoy your experience!

Smitten by the atmosphere, warm and inviting with long country kitchen tables and stone, combined with contemporary clean lines and plenty of room to move. But fell in love after the great service and wonderful food. Definitely top of the list to visit again when I'm back in town.

The staff was friendly and the food was excellent. I highly recommend checking this place out if you ever find yourself by Santana Row. Reservations would be helpful as it was busy when we went Friday evening.
