The Café at Chez Panisse, located upstairs, opened in 1980 to offer an alternative to the set menu served in the Restaurant downstairs. The Café offers a moderately priced à la carte menu for both lunch and dinner. It has an open kitchen along one side of the room with a charcoal grill and a wood burning oven. The menu changes daily and is inspired by local, seasonal ingredients. Reservations are recommended. Please call and let the reservationist know if anyone in your party requires special accommodation to access our upstairs Café dining room.

Caffe Riace, a robust Palo Alto trattoria, offers conviviality, homemade specialties and family-style warmth. One of many fine restaurants in the California Avenue section of Palo Alto, Riace is family-run. Every dish is made with honest expertise. No tricky trendiness here, just the same good old fashioned recipies mom and dad follow at home. Caffe Riace is also a perfect venue for wedding receptions, business meetings, graduations and other special events. If you're looking for an intimate dining experience, we offer private dining rooms, at no extra cost, that accommodate up to 20 guests. Our patio can host up to 200 guests and is a wonderful venue for warm weather events of any kind!

"For the money, M. Benjamin should do better. Costco's rotisserie chicken has more flavor."

Known for their astounding repertoire of fresh spring rolls and collective small plates, Three Seasons Restaurant has quickly become the dining experience of choice among those who know. Founders Chef Hung Le and Tessa Nguyen bring their concept of fresh premium ingredients combined with innovative food presentation to downtown Palo Alto. The result is an unprecedented and thoroughly addictive spin on traditional Vietnamese flavors. The flagship Three Seasons, in San Francisco's trendy Marina District, has earned the distinction as one of the most acclaimed Vietnamese restaurants in the Bay Area since its inception over three years ago.
