Busy place on a Tuesday night. Very good, fast service and good food. They were out of the specials, but had a mahi-mahi that was perfectly grilled.

We did not have all our guests arrive on time but they sat my husband and myself anyway. I was able to have a nice glass of wine with some bread. It made the wait pleasurable.

Was there before 5pm and we were given a nice booth. Ordered scallops and prawns wrapped with bacon. Friend ordered Maine lobster tail. For starter, had the clam chowder. Overall, meals were good although my meal was a bit cold.

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.
