Hay Market no longer exists. The location is now called Over Under Sports Bar. It's near the southwest end of Lincoln Ave. in the downtown Willow Glen district of San Jose. The restaurant-with-full-service-bar-and-TVs serves delicious small plates, salads, and burgers. The ambience is a bit sparse and cold: many tall tables, a few communal tables, high ceiling, hardwood floor...but that... More

While the Hay Market was awesome, the new sports bar incarnation "Over Under" is a better fit for the neighborhood. The cornbread is awesome and love the variety of small plates to snack on while watching a ball game. Great cocktails and beers. Ask for the red lavender beer as it is awesome. Definitely worth a try. Ok but not... More

I'd been to this restaurant awhile ago and enjoyed my visit so I decided to go back for dinner. We made a seatme reservation ( Yelp run reservation system) and were promptly seated even though it was busy. We were immediately told that the fried chicken was 86'd. Of course we were all watching the delicious looking chicken being devoured... More

Had a bad first experience a year ago, but thought we would try this restaurant again. Let me flatly say, I don't like this restaurant and I won't return. Don't like community seating. The only two reservable tables are uncomfortable. Went for lunch today, hardly anyone here although the rest of Willow Glen was booming. We had the Cubano ham... More

Folks, looking for a little farm to table action well this is probably as close as it comes in good ol' San Jose. Small joint with a pleasant atmosphere serving well whats really fresh and available at the time. Menu variation is explosive due to the high level of knowledge and creativity in the kitchen. Spirits are top shelf and... More

I called this Jekyll and Hyde because at lunch the restaurant is Kansui - a Ramen restaurant - which I have not been to and in the evening it is Hay Market a dinner restaurant espousing local foods. That is the one I am talking about. The restaurant is totally unpretentious almost factory "bar-room" y family style seating you might... More

I was expecting more paleo choices but found only a few. I ordered the pork butt and found it bland. I had expected much more flavor especially as expensive as it was. The food and service was good but not exceptional.

This is a much lauded, recent, locavore restaurant. The menu is limited to four or five appetizers, few salads and soups, four or five entrees and a couple desserts. Apparently, the menu changes quite frequently, although this restaurant's website, as sparse as it is, does not upload updated menus. Places with frequently changing menus with limited choices usually make me... More

What a terrific find. A simple idea with a striking results. Three movie screens running with foreign movies with no sound. Food was delicious and original. Service was attentive and knowledgeable. Community tables make it feel very European. will definitely return again and again.

Hay Market is a great addition to Willow Glen. The food is fresh, flavorful, and inventive. The daily menu is printed out, and also listed on a giant chalkboard on the wall. I've enjoyed lunches and dinners at Hay Market, and although I may be disappointed that a favorite dish has moved off the menu, there's always a new pleasure... More
