"Took a group of ten visitors for a business dinner and elected to eat outside (we were unaware we would have to share benches, which was somewhat difficult). The menu offers an excellent variety of complex flavors, complementing each other while offering taste surprises. Every dish we had (with a group of ten we had A LOT!) was wonderful - attracting "ooohhhhssss" and "aaaaahhhhhssss". After an issue with a wine selection, which was definitely unsatisfactory - the GM brought a fabulous wine that pleased the group. Issue with service - poorly timed delivery of main courses (one of our group had to wait for five minutes for their plate), no secondary drink service offered after initial round - the only complaint was inattentive service."

"Took family here for a belated birthday celebration as the celebrant LOVES the Bloody Mary Bar. Salads, burgers, clam chowder were all great as usual! Server was extremely attentive and food was delivered in a FLASH!! The complementary birthday creme brulee with whipped cream and berries plus a candle finished off an extremely lovely lunch."

"Aubrey was our server and he embodies the positive and healthy nature of this establishment - he is to be commended for his care, attention and professionalism - a quality experience! The food from the lobster flat bread to the lamb chops I personally ordered (with Yukon gold potatoes and veggies) were perfectly prepared. Everyone at our table was thrilled with the taste, temperature and ingredients used to create complex and complementary flavors of each dish. We never complain about dessert - and again, were thrilled with the delicious variety - I had the peanut and chocolate, and shared the key lime (yes, I only needed ONE, but the desserts here are "da bomb!") We LOVE Seasons 52 whether here in NY or in our home state of CA!!!"

Kuleto's serves distinctive California ~ Italian cuisine featuring ingredients prepared in unusual combinations.<br />The atmosphere is a combination of old San Francisco aura, Italian conviviality and contemporary vitality with high vaulted ceilings, genuine Italian marble floors with dark wood and warm lighting.

"A business dinner here with a colleague from China - first timer in SF! Heard from another in our group he'd been eating here for 25 years (Kuleto's has been in business 28+ years). The food was good - great flavors, rich in texture and a wonderful melding of different types of food, BUT the service was dismal. We placed our order - we weren't rush after cocktail service to do that - walking in the door to cocktail delivery about 20 min. From cocktail to dinner order 25 min.... Dinner delivered in 25 min. From dinner to dessert - a different story altogether! 30 min. to get menus, 20 min. to place the order and 20 min. for ONE heirloom tomato / mint sorbet to be delivered! Unbelievable!!!!! (And, embarrassing for us with our guest...)"

Piccolo Ristorante Italiano is a cozy and intimate authentic Italian restaurant located in the heart of downtown Menlo Park. We are a small 12 table restaurant, which is where our name "Piccolo" comes from. "Piccolo" in Italian means small.

"Had a reservation for a party of five for a surprise birthday party dinner - the table was at the entrance, it was a table for four with a chair on the end - a problem for a group of larger / tall individuals (very uncomfortable). The food was delicious, but service was stretched as the restaurant was packed with people waiting for tables - there was a nice variety and selection of entree's; each person in our party had something different so we could share the many flavors. Desserts were DELICIOUS! I will try Piccolo Ristorante Italiano, but it will be with a much smaller party."

"This was my second visit to Napa Tavern. I am very glad I gave this place a second chance - as the first time last winter, the service and noise made the evening most unenjoyable. The food was again wonderful, complex flavors, a wide variety of selections! This time the SERVICE was SPECTACULAR. Gabriel took great care of our table, even when we had food allergies, which required a new dish, custom-cooked. I would highly recommend Napa Tavern as a place for cocktails, a nice glass of wine, or an evening with friends and fine food."
