My wife and I loved our visit to Manresa. The service was first class, and the food was amazing. Every dish impressed, which is rare, even at these top-end restaurants. The cuisine was creative, but not over the top. Flavors take center stage here, not flowery platings. Overall, we would highly recommend Manresa for a special night out. Here was... More

Colleagues recommended we go. It is worth it. We had the chef taster menu but without the wine selection as our budget did not permit us that. If you can you should. We had abalone for the first time.. great.

This was an anniversary dinner for us. The dinner experience was amazing and unforgettable. The service was impeccable and the ambiance was serene. The hostess, Master Sommelier and servers were all top notch. The food was a beautiful adventure in texture, temperature, visual beauty and taste. We really enjoyed the wine flight and the additional wine we ordered. While this... More

We enjoyed the tasting menu and the excellent service including a knowledgeable inventive bartender. However, the food lacked the wow factor we have experienced at other 3 star Michelin restaurants and that we certainly expected for the over the top price. Wouldn't recommend it nor will we return.

Six of us had the pleasure of spending four hours being served a most unusual array of unusual and delectable dishes. When reservations were made we were asked about any food allergies or restrictions. Our server clarified all of our various issues and then proceeded to present one incredible course after another, customized as needed. Four diners selected the wine... More

Prepare for a long dinner - this type of food takes time. However, if you are a foodie, it is worth it. All their vegetables come from Love Apple Farms in the Santa Cruz mountains - all organically grown - giving amazing flavors to your taste buds.

We had been trying to schedule a table at Manresa, in Los Gatos, for many years. Most often, we could not, as our trips to San Francisco (at least monthly, but often weekly) were sandwiched between meetings elsewhere, and there was just no time to get down to Los Gatos from the City, even for but a night. Other times,... More

Went here expecting a wonderful meal with superb service. We were very disappointed. Service was impeccable although we found it difficult to understand some of the ingredients as they were verbally listed. At times we were not sure what we were eating.... Wine pairing was expensive and not impressive. At one point I actually felt nauseous. Most of it the... More
