"We had a new waitress, who we had to constantly remind to refill our coffee. It was obvious she needed additional training. The food was good, and served promptly. We were left alone so we were able to talk."

"This outstanding, family owned establishment consistently serves incredible cuisine. Pasta, fish and meat dishes were all spectacular and noteworthy. Service is incredible as well. Never a 'hit or miss', but always top drawer in regards to food, service and atmosphere."

"This is an amazing and incredible restaurant. The service by Jennay and warm greeting from Jessica made me immediately feel like a VIP. The menu has a wonderful selection of meat and fish dishes, amazing salads and a nice array of appetizers. The professionalism displayed by Jennay and her knowledge of the items was truly noteworthy. Both Jessica and Jennay ensured that our dining experience was out of the ball park by checking frequently with us. I was accompanied by friends and we all left with such a memorable experience. Run, don't walk to this amazing restaurant within the Doubletree Hotel. Steaks, fish and salads all outstanding. Comparable to anything and frankly more superior then San Francisco city restaurants. Job well done."

Esin has been a neighborhood jewel since opening in 1998. The name Esin is not only the name of one of the owners but also means “inspiration”. The food is the passion of Chef & Owners Curtis and Esin deCarion. They strive to create cuisine that is fresh, seasonal, and prepared with great care. The fare is American with bits of Mediterranean influences. The wine list has been recognized by Wine Spectator & Wine Enthusiast magazines. <br /> Esin Restaurant & Bar relocated in July of 2008 to the Newest upscale lifestyle center The Rose Garden in Danville. The freshly designed dining room offers warm and comforting tones.<br />Be sure to save room for one of Esin’s fresh made desserts that have become so well known.

The Dal Rae is the Southern California restaurant where 1950s classics still reign. Lobster Thermidor, Pepper Steak, Chateaubriand, Prime Rib, Fresh Fish, Rack of Lamb, Steak Diane and Cherries Jubilee prepared tableside are among more than 100 items on a truly retro menu, complete with some of the city's best martinis. Opened in 1958, the Dal Rae has maintained its original atmosphere, too, right down to a piano bar with live entertainment. And, most important, it has preserved a tradition otherwise found only in private clubs -- knowing its customers by name and treating them like the most important people in the whole wide world. The Dal Rae is located close to the 5 freeway and half-way between LA County, Orange County and The Valley. It is a perfect location for business meetings or entertaining friends and family.

"Everything about this incredible institution is noteworthy. The food remains consistently the very best now for a number of years. The lamb chops were cooked to perfection; the Caesar salad - prepared table side is the very, very best; the calamari - nicely prepared. Cappuccinos - nicely created. Best of all, our wait person, Catrina was absolutely, positively amazing. When dining here, be sure to ask for her - every whim, need, want and dining desire is fulfilled. Water topped off, dishes taken away and every nuisance and request was addressed. Dining is all about the food, but sometimes it's the service, it's the kindness shown and displayed by the staff that puts it in the stratosphere. Catrina accomplished this feat with true professionalism and skill. Nicely done. Run, to this amazing institution and enjoy."

The Ayres family has been serving up fantastic Steaks, Chops, Ahi Sandwiches, Signature Salads, and House-made Desserts for decades. Each location presents a lively atmosphere where friends and neighbors can be seen table-hopping while business associates hammer out important deals. <br><br>There is fireside dining in the main dining room as well as the tree-shaded patio facing the magnificent San Juan Capistrano Mission.

"Our brunch here was a mixed bag. Upon entering the restaurant, we were ignored as restaurant employees were scrambling around in 90 different directions. Behind us, there was a line of folks entering the restaurant that were equally ignored. The manager seated us, served us and then we were ignored once again. Food was very good, yet, when it came time for coffee refills, the wait staff was more concerned about removing dishes that we were still eating from and the restaurant had many empty tables. Attention to these issues is warranted."

La Bastide offers French-American cuisine with a contemporary flair. You will do a Tour de France enjoying such delicacies as our famous moules marinieres, salmon papillotes, coq au vin, duck confit, crème brulee, or crepes suzettes prepared by our well known chef de cuisine Barry Coalson. Enjoy a glass of wine or a cocktail at the bar. The atmosphere is very relaxing and casual, no dress code enforced.<br />Silver Fork Award, Best French Restaurant SignonSanDiego, .... <br /><br><br><br /><br />

"Fantastic food selections - fish and pasta entrees were excellent. A bit disappointed in the 'no can do' attitude from wait staff. Might want to adjust this a bit. Assistant waiter was excellent. Initial requests were not met with a positive attitude, but warmed up as the meal progressed. Talented chef in the kitchen, mixing some inventive spices."

"We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at this delightful institution. First of all, the service and personnel rank as some of the best I have ever encountered. We were greeted warmly by the hostess and restaurant manager. Then our waiter (John) and assistant waiter (Hany) were incredible. I was celebrating a special occasion and all these folks acknowledged this and made sure my evening was very special. Hany especially displayed kindness, service and efficiency that was unparalleled in many of the fine restaurants I've had the pleasure of dining in. He was knowledgeable and ensured that each course was delivered timely and taken away once we completed them. I often remark that the restaurants superior ness not only comes from the cuisine, but it's always the quality of the people encountered that will make a dining experience extra special - the employees here truly are and it was a pleasure to experience their hospitality."

"We cannot believe that such a world class restaurant is located within the Doubletree Hotel in Burlingame, but there it is. From our initial gracious, warm and welcoming greeting from Jessica, We were seated in a wonderful table and provided with a super overview of the restaurant. Jenny was our server and to say she was amazing is an understatement. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and recommended several items. I appreciated her opinions because it turned out the French onion soup, the chicken wings, skirt steak and other recommendations were spot on. Jenny was kind, friendly, efficient, knowledgeable and as each course was completed was right there to measure our satisfaction. This incredible restaurant will always be my 'to go' choice when I venture to the bay area. To the management of this establishment, Jenny was the very best and exuded such a gracious, courteous and welcoming manner that service was beyond perfect. Job well done all around."
