When I am in this part of California, I am traditionally here for work. Let me translate “work” for you. “Work”, in this case, means that I am ordering room service at the Sheraton in Milpitas late at night because I have convinced myself that fries and pizza are an awesome idea, as I have talked so much that for some reason I cannot feel my legs anymore and my brain is mush. Also, I am also going to watch The Bachelorette.
The last time I was in Mountain View, I got swept away by a friend in a convertible and we landed here. It was a little miracle to score a table when we did, but we got the last two-top and went at it.
The restaurant is modern. It is high end. The environment is also surprisingly warm… or was the night we were there. It seemed that everyone who was eating around us was having a good time.
I can’t say that the service helped things, but they also didn’t hurt them. They got to the brink of too-much-time-away, my-drink-is-too-low and you-are-talking-too-long, but then recovered.
The white sangria was perfect for a light summer drink. I had perfectly cooked scallops, which (let’s be honest) never happens. The onion rings are magical.
Go here. Call first.
