I was here with some work colleagues for dinner. We shared some appetizers and had some grilled fishes later. I tried Fish and chips but was just ordinary . Staff attentive.

Seared yellowtail was very good, served with a sushi side of soy sauce, ginger and wasabi. Very good selection of seafood. A little pricey but toy get what you pay for, IMHO.

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.
