This is a long established restaurant in a lovely location. One's appetite improves just on the drive getting there. The welcome has always been cordial, if a little reserved. We've gone often enough over the years to find that the food quality and service are not consistent. When it's good, it's very good. It's a nice restaurant to indulge in... More

Went for our anniversary. many seats overlook a creek that is lit at night. Menu is simple but well done, they welcome substitutions and portion size changes. Parking is good. reservations suggested as they do get busy. the staff is quite knowledgeable. The house wine is good.

The menu, food preparation and service has never disappointed. Consistently good and if you want to treat some employees to a truly special evening for the holidays, this is a great place to make a good impression.

La Foret was highly rated in trip advisor so I decided to make the trip and see what all the fuzz was about. The restaurant is a colonial style house in a semi rural area south of San Jose. Its certainly tasteful,... More

The wine and food were excellent as well as the service which was very attentive. The food is a bit pricey but this is a great place to... More

Truly couldn't believe it. After so many many drab meals in Palo Alto and Sam Jose it was a real pleasure to set foot in to this great restaurant. The food was excellent - very thoughtfully prepared. The service and decor are exceptional. The restaurant has been here for several decades and is a hot favorite amongst those who know... More

I hadn't been to this restaurant in many years and decided to give it a try with some fellow employees and was I surprised! Our meal was prepared perfectly and everything tasted delicious! The service was top-notch and they took care of all of our needs and requests.

It doesn't get any better than this. It's pricey but very worth it. The service is also the best service you can get. Wish I could go more often.
