I brought guests from the bay area and New York City, people who expect a higher level of quality in their cuisine. They were not disappointed, nor was I. The desert selection is to die for!

Haven't been to this restaurant in quite a while, and I was very pleasantly surprised. Excelsior has always been a nice place for dinner - quiet, good service, good wine. Tonight's food was really terrific across the board. I had a filet mignon special with...More

I was brought here as part of a business meeting. The quality of the food is very good. I tried the spaghetti frutto mare which included clams, mussels, and octopus. The pasta was home made (a big plus) and the octopus was also good quality.

Good Sunday brunches here. Beautiful setting, lovely rooms, vintage hotel. But the rest of the food is really disappointing. I have always had lovely brunches here so I went here for lunch yesterday expecting the same. Every item I ordered was terrible: borscht that tasted...More

The Excelsior is a long time favorite of mine. I visited for lunch today and as always, did not let me down. Quiet ambiance, prompt and courteous service, and desserts you must save room for. Pasta made in-house. Parking can be tough streetside, but there...More

Great meal! We found expertly prepared classic Italian fare at this quiet, white tablecloth restaurant. They serve classics like fritto misto, antipasti, osso buco, and pastas in a refined setting. The fritto misto was good sized, with hearty servings of oysters, shrimp, calamari, well seasoned...More
