The food is wonderful and tasty, the staff is very accommodating and the atmosphere is amazing. What other restaurant has a market with experts in it that can help you pick out your fish and meat purchases??!!

In years past this was my go-to bay area restaurant. Recently visited and was disappointed. Caesar salad was good but tuna was overcooked and dry, and the slaw was just OK. Service was good. Probably will not return.More

Our second restaurant, opened in 1979 in the heart of the Silicon Valley, has been as popular with local residents as it has with the business crowd. A comfortable and spacious cocktail bar adds to the energetic atmosphere of this casual dining restaurant. Be sure to arrive early for the counter seats at the oyster bar, as they fill up quickly.
