Great drinks. Great food. Location is great because it's close to major roadways and public transportation. Parking is available at all times. The Mediterranean food is good.

Sorry to say but this was just average. Knowing a lot of American diner in the region the food here wasn't that tasty (missing flavor). If you just need something to eat after a long flight you're good.

Met with an old friend for breakfast and was told by locals to be early for dinner as parking is a big challenge, in fact went for breakfast and parking is a bit tight with a "dirt" lot for overflow and overflow they had for a great breakfast. Arrived about 9:30 am with plenty of patrons and plenty of open... More

Got to South San Francisco a little later than planned, we wanted to relax and enjoy a meal before going to the hotel. We couldn't have scored better. Staff was attentive, but not a bothersome. Atmosphere was relaxing but upbeat and the food was terrific. Had scampi w/pasta perfectly cooked. Price was good for all we got. This was our... More

I've been here once before and was not really impressed, but tried it again. You know sometimes it's just what you order. I went back with family recently and truly enjoyed it. They make a mean Ruben sandwich, and most everyone in our party of nine enjoyed their selections. Price is fair, service is good.

We stopped for lunch here on our way to the airport after leaving San Francisco. We were really surprised at how busy and how nice this place was at it was sort of in the middle of a trading estate. Portions were very large, food was really tasty and the service was excellent. Really glad we decided to stop here... More

Stopped by here after a long airline flight for a late breakfast around 10:30 on a Sunday morning. Unfortunately, it looked like a lot of other people had the same idea. The place was packed, but was able to find an open seat at the bar. "Bartender"/server was pretty busy, so service was quite slow and somewhat spotty, but finally... More

The steak dinner was very good. If you arrive between 4:30 and 6 pm you get the early bird special. Includes main course, soup or salad, and a drink. The mashed potatos are fantastic. The service is A1

Very loud. Service & food just average. Tough to find parking. Their San Mateo location much better overall. Tables too close to each other.
