Updating my recent review after an my wife's visit this morning. She was having brunch with a friend, and when it came time to pay the bill, gave the server her credit card. When the server returned with the check, my wife noticed her credit card was missing. She immediately told the server who had no idea what happened to... More

We stopped here for dinner wanting a light meal - this was perfect. The baked Brie was divine to share, we both had salads - Grapefruit Salad with Salmon, and Cesar Salad with Beef - they were so good, very well prepared and great quality. We finihsed off with the flourless chocolate cake - couldn't resist - it was divine!... More

Sit outside when the weather is nice. Short but good menu. Nice wine list. Good, knowledgeable service.

A noisy bistro atmosphere with charm. Our server friendly, and always available with a keen sense of when to approach, and when to let us chat. My braised shank was wonderful (and I've indulged in many). My friend's beef was tender and sumptuous. Great wine-by-the-glass choices.

Stopped in for late lunch. Place was not busy but it seemed to take a long time to get service and eventually our meal. I had a chicken wrap that was presented beautifully but had no taste. I had to ask for some dressing for the salad as I think they forgot to add it. My partner had a burger... More

This restaurant and bar is very pleasant in Mission-style decor. Entrees, salmon and filet, were excellent. Margaritas were top-rank. Also, a very good happy hour.

Been here before for lunch. Good appetizers and drinks. Entrees were less than average. I had a linguini with tofu dish. The pasta was cooked beyond soggy. The rest of the party's entrees were just ok. Don't think I'll be coming back here anytime soon. There are many other better restaurants in Santana Row.

We were looking for a breakfast spot at Santana to entertain another family with kids. The Village CA Bistro is one of two restaurants serving (late) breakfast. We were pleasantly surprised with the food and service. We ordered the Eggs Bruschetta, eggs benedict, and 3 egg scramble. All were very good! Village opens at 10 (weekdays), the only other restaurant... More
