Kincaid's translates the traditional fish, chop and steak house into contemporary terms. In a casually elegant atmosphere, the restaurant offers outstanding cuisine and impressive bay views. You'll find new classics, consistent excellence and a splash of swagger!

Inspired by the slow food movement of Italy, Osteria Coppa specializes in artisanal pasta and pizza while embracing a fresh, seasonal farm-to-table style. Handcrafted pasta and pizza, farm fresh toppings, artisan cheeses, savory house-made sauces, and house cured salumi reflect Executive Chef Chanan Kamen’s profound passion for making his cuisine from scratch using traditional, old world techniques. <br /><br />Relax in a casual, urban setting in the heart of downtown San Mateo. Grab a seat at the bar, dine tableside indoors, join friends at the community table, or enjoy the sunshine outdoors (with heaters and shade umbrellas) on the festive “Coppa Cabana” patio!

"Our dinner was excellent this evening. We enjoy the seasonal dishes and look forward to seeing what is available. Our dinners tonight for a party of four consisted of a pizza, pappardelle with short ribs, lamb shanks with risotto and root veggies, and a bacon and pumpkin pasta. The bacon and pumpkin pasta was a terrific combination! We shared the salumi platter, for an appetizer, and a pumpkin bread pudding and an ice cream for dessert."

Seasonal & Delicious.<br /><br />With Paul Martin's American Grill, Brian Bennett and restaurateur Paul Fleming have realized a long-nurtured dream to create the restaurant "we've always wished was in our neighborhood." <br /><br />At the heart of all great food is fresh, local, peak of the season ingredients. Paul Martin's aims to serve diners the best ingredients with meat raised in a humane and wholesome way, locally sourced produce, the best of both wild and farmed fish, artisan cheeses and cured meats from small local purveyors. The deep California-centric wine list twists and turns, by glass or bottle, through the Golden State's vineyards, with an occasional stop for an Oregon Pinot Gris or a Washington dry Riesling. Behind Paul Martin's elegantly rustic bar is an interesting array of craft beer and spirited cocktails with fresh garnishes. Good times and thoughtful food are a way of life at Paul Martin's American Grill.

"We had a reservation; they were very busy, and we waited about fifteen to twenty minutes for our table. We were seated at my requested table, however. Our server was very good and was our meal. My disappointment was the wine. They were out of one bottle of white wine that we requested, so we ordered another, only to find out that they were out of that one, too. Upon ordering our third choice, our soup and salad arrived. We, then, cancelled that bottle and ordered just a glass of red for our dinner. Our server apologized, but it wasn't her fault."

"Always a good meal with excellent service. We had dessert tonight, and should have it more often. All are made in house. The apple strudel and vanilla gelato were so tasty."

"We have eaten here several times and have always rated it highly. Tonight was an exception, our server appeared to be new. He was unfamiliar with the wine list, and suggested that I read the descriptions. He also did not feel comfortable describing the specials. He did, however, offer to have the manager help us with the wine, who saved our evening. His description of wines, appetizers, and entrees were extremely helpful. We enjoyed the appetizers of burrata, early girl, tomatoes, and basil, and the oven roasted calamari. The calamari was tasty and tender. My husband had the special tortilloni with burrata, and I enjoyed the scialetelli with eggplant. We shared the salted caramel gelato and the bottle of wine!"

"Always a good meal with excellent service. We enjoy the relaxed environment and always feel welcome. Tonight we had the antipasti special; a nice variety, and the entrees - the special petrale dore; delicious and a healthy portion, the special lamb chop; very tender, and the calamari dore; cooked perfectly. We had a dessert trio that was also very tasty."
