We were looking forward to a night out at a special place. What happened is this....we were seated in the bar at a "VIP table" that was in the corner and we bumped chairs with the next table the entire time due to the tight space. The table had no settings and was dirty. Not a great start. Although, The... More

I was attending a seminar in San Jose and decided to try out the M & S in SJ, I was not disappointed. I have eaten at numerous M & S throughout the US and this is one of the better ones. Check it out if you are in the area, you will not be disappointed.

I had fond memories of this chain from my time in NYC. It wasn't bad by any means, and I realize you are paying a premium but... I just wasn't wowed, especially for the money.

Enjoyed the great fish and the extremely nice wine selection. Fast and courteous service. One of my favorite places in San Jose downtown

This is one of my husband's and my favorite restaurant. We prefer to sit in the open seating area by the bar because it's more casual. We go for the Happy Hour but usually end up ordering stuff that isn't on the happy hour menu. This time I ordered the baja tacos off the happy hour menu and the shrimp... More

Average place, with nice food, good service but very pricey for the food served. The place itself is very nice thought.

Biggest disappointment ever. After a lovely afternoon at the San Jose Christmas on the Park, we wanted to have a festive nice lunch. M&S is right on the park - perfect choice - so we thought. Decided to sit at the bar (Sunday game was on) and the service was crazy non-existent. Why on earth is the poor bartender charged... More

I ate here several times on a recent trip because the weather was bad and it was at my hotel. The food was always good. I was a little put off by being seated in the bar (when the dining room was empty) while the staff was making a horrible racket. I never figured out exactly what they were doing... More

I visited here because the happy hour food/wine menu seemed to have good choices at more reasonable prices than most places in downtown San Jose. I had the happy hour chardonnay (not good, barely drinkable) and the shrimp tacos (which the bar tender recommended). The tacos were not good - lukewarm tortilla, barely breaded shrimp and minimal slaw. I decided... More

Highlights of this meal included: 1) Tasteless and overcooked food, some of which had to be sent back which meant we both ate at different times with the other just watching; 2) The ordered (expensive) bottle of red wine finally showed up long after the meal was finished, including the wait for less overcooked food, despite many enquiries as to...
