This is a very nice place in the heart of Silicon Valley. In the center of San Carlos tucked away in a nice side street you find a wonderful restaurant. Busy at all times don't try it without a reservation. Very nice atmosphere inside and...More

Very popular restaurant. Definitely make reservations. They have great lunch specials. Food is excellent as well as service. Bar is always crowded with people. They do have a counter overlooking the kitchen. Kind of fun watching them prepare your meals.

Very busy restaurant. Good place for a business dinner. Steak restaurant. Staple in San Carlos. If you go for lunch, you can shop afterwards. Parking is a challenge, but manageable.

Research and a little "intuition" make for a good restaurant find. I was not disappointed. The place was packed, literally, for a Thursday night. I found a seat at their "Kitchen Bar" so I got to see the show first hand. The service was prompt,...More

I hadn't been to Town Restaurant in many, many years. Some friends suggested we go there one evening for dinner. We arrived at 5:10 p.m. The place was about three-quarters full already. The hostess said she had a table for us, but then promptly told...More

Five years ago we had a memorable dinner here. Memorable again, just not in such a good way. Sadly it seems the quality of the food and service has slipped. The waitress forgot several items we needed or requested. She wasn't even looking at our...More

I go there often, just for cappuccino and dessert. They still serve coffee, drinks, and desert even after the kitchen shuts down for the night.
