The restaurant is perched on the hillside providing an exceptional view of the city. This former monastere has been converted into a unique dining experience. Oh...and the food was good as well. The service was excellent and the seafood was the star of the menu. They do host a lot of events there so call ahead so you aren't disappointed.

Great food and comparable service. The view is outstanding and the dinning rooms are nice. Convenient secure parking out front. All round a good lace to go.

We visited the restaurant only to find a wedding in progress and the place was reserved. We did walk out to see the views and it is over the top. Sweeping, panoramic views of the valley.....it is a special place! Maybe next time we will have a drink or dinner!

The location is outstanding with great view of the Central Valley of San Jose. It is recommended to visit at night to get out the best of the view. The food is very good. It is an expensive place though. Perfect for business meetings or special family events.

Very good service and menu! Charming decor!
Good experience! Placed on a top of a mountain, the restaurant offers a contemporary menu with very good presentation!
