“If you kinda wanna be a tech geek with a flare for okay beer and late afternoon coiffing...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

This joint thinks they're pretty good, maybe even excellent.
I beg to differ a bit.
I think the place is medium, the location kind of sucks and everything is a little over priced.
If you look around, the place is either male gay or engineer hetero/gay. There's nary a woman in the place. And at 8:30PM, it's either back to Apple or Nuance or to bed alone. You will never score here- unless you're hunting for a coding trick.
The beer does fill you up, but if you want a social scene outside of C++ or PERL, look elsewhere. Like maybe even St whatever it is down the road 1/4 miles where they do indeed have a killer burger and a fun sports bar scene.
If you come in early, don't be surprised if the self aggrandizing bar tenders won't see you... even if you start gesticulating like a Malay Flight headed south. The place needs to be re-worked and the menus updated for a cooler, hipper feel, even if you're just a start up geek like me.

“Nice place, great energy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2014

The place is nice and it has great energy...but we had a waiter who just wanted to turn the table. It was quite annoying. Food was average...overflow parking was across the street which was great..there is security in the lot.... as it has a lot of positives but if service is spotty it can kill a good time.

“Faultline Brewing a great after work stop when in the heart of Silicon Valley”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014

Faultline Brewing has been a frequent stop after work when in Silicon Valley. The have a variety of house brewed beers; a large bar; a larger dining area; and outdoor seating along a small lake in good weather (which means most of the time).

On this Friday, we enjoyed the Happy Hour Hefe Weizen and some flash fried Calamari. Enjoyable.

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

I have been living in Sunnyvale for almost 5 yrs and never knew this place existed. Amazing place to relax, have good food, drink and finally have a cigar. Didn't get a chance to taste their food hope to go back soon and have some good food.
