Very disappointed with our recent experience. We had not been here for dinner in at least five years. The place used to be one of the top restaurants in the South Bay, but is sadly no more. On a recent Friday, the place was half-empty. Our waitress was indicative of the evening-no personality who had little interest in the menu.... More

I had a wonderful meal at The Depot. I was attending a business meeting with 20 people and the private space they gave us was perfect. The service was fast and professional. The restaurant has an Italian theme but they offer a great choice of steaks. I had the Thai Chicken which seemed odd on the menu but it was... More

The building looked unassuming from the outside. Once inside, the decor is both unexpectedly classy and intimate. The tables were close together but still comfortable.The food was excellent. The service leaves nothing to be desired. I liked the steamed salmon dish best. The chocolate dessert was to die for. The service was excellent.

Went for dinner last night with my husband and a friend. Seated immediately in a cozy booth. The server was attentive and knowledgeable. My husband ordered the salmon and my friend and I shared a spinach salad and Brussel sprouts. All dinners were delicious and the portions are large. The prices are a bit high but you can save by...

The menu has both Classic and Eclectic dining options. The outside doesn't do justice to the inside. The vintage design provides a cozy lounge, divided floor spacing between cozy booths, intimate two-tops, family style tables and a adjoining room for more privacy. Tastefully decorated, complete with white table linens and napkins, a little Kitsch, and vintage artwork. My favorite is... More

Table cloths and cloth napkins adorn this vintage-type restaurant with crescent booths and huddled tables in a dark decor. They definitely take advantage of table space. Menu includes tasty selections. I had a thai shrimp and chicken salad. Passion fruit iced tea. Lunch costs were higher than most restaurants, but the service was top.

We went for our 41st anniversary dinner late during the week. We were the only ones in there after about 30 minutes. Service was fair to good but I thought the food was over-seasoned and the vegetables were over-cooked. I spoke to a friend who owns a pizza/bar and she said not to go late at night because everyone wants... More

This place was a very pleasant surprise. Greg local craft beer selection with fresh seafood was 5 star.

Much better experience for lunch than dinner. Food was overpriced and not that great. Pretty disappointing. Service was actually not that great. The waitress was not very attentive to our table - and overly attentive to others.
