“Pricey but excellent food and nice atmosphere”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

We had a business dinner at Viognier and very much enjoyed it. I liked the restaurant's design, lots of wood and natural things; it felt comfortable yet elegant.

The menu was sufficiently broad with some surprises and the food was excellent. (To be fair I should note that one member of our party asked for well done steak, it came out blood red rare, he returned it and it came back medium at best.)

The servers was great, attentive, a little humorous, and helpful.

We enjoyed Viognier very much.

“Delicious food”
Reviewed 21 August 2013 via mobile

I attended a business dinner here with several colleagues. The food was outstanding and the optional wine pairing was a great way to sample a variety of wines. The service was excellent even with a larger party. The dinner was pricey, but it would be worth it for a special occasion.

“Overpriced and Under Delivered”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

Save your money. Food just ok, service inattentive. Waiter acted like he could care less if we stayed or left. Desert was highpoint of dinner. The rest mediocre.

“Really enjoyed my first experience here”
Reviewed 2 February 2013

Went here for a business dinner. It was my first experience and it was wonderful. Nice relaxed fine dining atmosphere where you can enjoy a high quality meal and have a great conversation with your guests. The chef brought out a few items that were very tasteful. I would rank this restaurant as one of the top in CA. We all ordered the four course meal which absolutely stuffed us. I will order the 3-course next time. The cheese plate for desert is great and enough to feed 2-3 people. On the way up to the restaurant pick your favorite bottle of wine from downstairs and bring it to your table. Will be back with the family for sure. Nice job guys!

“Quiet business-class place with overpriced food”
Reviewed 2 December 2012

Viognier is somewhat rare for San Mateo. SM is a hive of great Chinese, Japanese, and Mexican food. Places are somewhat boisterous and filled with locals. For a quiet business meal, there aren't that many choices. Viogner would be called a "ladies who lunch" place, or similar to a hotel restaurant. The food is good but not great in any way. As a local, I don't eat here, and don't even recommend it over 321 Ellsworth.
