Kokkari Estiatorio San Francisco, CA
An excellent restaurant in every respect. Unusual to find a quiet night here, always excietment in the air and beautiful people in attendance. The food here is always the big draw, with wonderful grilled dishes of meats and fish available. This place is a winner, and as said by other reviewers, you will need a reservation...
Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House Las Vegas, NV
Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House is an excellent rendition of that Texas staple, a true steakhouse with a very busy bar and a seperate cigar room (complete with a piano and a fireplace). We really did enjoy our meal here, as the whole experience was most pleasant. The food, the atmosphere and even the live music all added up to a very enjoyable evening. If you want a great beef meal off of the Las Vegas Strip, then you cannot do much better than the Double Eagle...
Canaletto Las Vegas, NV
We have eaten at Canaletto each of our last four trips to Las Vegas and have always found that the excellent food, good service and the very busiy atmosphere all added up to a very nice dining experience. This is a very busy restaurant located just off of the Venetian Hotel's "Grand Canal", so there can be a very large crowd walking past your table. So be it, this is still a very nice place to enjoy a meal, have a glass of wine and just watch the passing crowd. We like it enough that we will be back whenever we visit Las Vegas again...
Eddy's Old Fashioned Hamburgers Medford, OR
Located on Riverside Drive (old US 99), Eddy's Old Fashioned Hamburgers is now owned and operated by Joanne and Joe Pool. This is an old fashioned hamburger joint, where your meal is not prepared until you order it. With just a few tables inside and a picnic table located outside, a lot of the hamburgers are ordered as take-out. Just the same, if you enjoy a good, hot hamburger, this just might be your cup of tea...
Carol's Corner Cafe Vancouver, WA
If you like good food and lots of it, Carols' Corner Cafe in Vancouver maybe your kind of place. The plates that come out of that small kitchen, at a very fast pace, are filled to the brim with hot, fresh food. We've been there for Sunday breakfast (get there early as there is going to be a line) and everyone in our party of four seemed to be happy with their meal. Guess we'll all be going back to Carols' Corner Cafe...
Chart House Vancouver, WA
Not too much is cheap at the Chart House. They have changed their menu so the focus is on seafood and not so much on steaks. I kind of miss the old menu, loved those baseball steaks! Oh well, guess that nothing is forever, even at the Chart House chain...
Montis La Casa Vieja Tempe, AZ
Hey, this place has been in business for over 100 years, so they must be doing something right...
The Old Spaghetti Factory San Jose, CA
This old place has been in business in the same locatin in San Jose for many years and they are still going strong. Fine dining it is NOT, but they still serve a lot of meals to a lot of people who mostly seem pretty happy with what they order. I've even seen high school and college sports teams eating here, so you know that the kitchen can serve up some pretty fast dishes, too. If this place is good enough for my mother, it should be good enough for your's too...
Centrella Bistro and Cafe Half Moon Bay, CA
Nice place for Half Moon Bay. They usually have live music in the bar on weekend, so that adds to the atmosphere. A very large building, can take lots of guests with ease. The food is very good, and usually very fresh. A real plus for this part of the San Mateo County coast...
Anzu San Francisco, CA
If you want to try the combination of beef and sushi, this is the place for you. The food, the service and the decor are all first rate at this hotel restaurant. Located on the second floor off of the lobby, Anzu offers a very exciting menu and don't be too surprised at the cost. Ofter all, this is a Japanese influenced restaurant...
Monti's La Casa Vieja Tempe, AZ
Monti's seems to just keep going along. While not a great steakhouse, this place has been in business for over 100 years, so they must be doing something right. Our party of seven was seated within 15 minutes (arriving without a reservation on a Thursday night). The service was actually pretty good, and our dinners ranged from Prime Rib to the lobster special. Everyone seemed to enjoy what they ordered and we all left with a smile on our faces (maybe it was because someone else was paying the bill). Like I said before, this place has been in business for 100+ years and it is still successful...
Treviso Sausalito, CA
Treviso is the newest restaurant to join the already popular Sausalito restaurant population. A friendly bar joined with an interesting restaurant make for a wonderful dining experience. We've been there as a couple and also with a larger group, and both times the staff has been both friendly and professional. Great food is presented here, tasty and fresh. There is also an interesting wine list to accompany your dining selections. This place has a winning formula and has grown in popularity very quickly...
Porters Medford, OR
Porters is housed in the old Southern Pacific railroad station in downtown Medford. A beautifully restored building, Porters tries hard to live up to its surrounings by offering a variety of items on the menu, but the beef and seafood seems to be the draw here. We both has steaks, Top Sirloin for her and a New York for me. Both dishes appeared and were wonderfully presented with the beef, veggies and mashed potatoes. All in all, Porters is a very nice place to enjoy a pretty good meal...
Tad's Steak Restaurant San Francisco, CA
What can you say about a place that has been in business at the same location for almost 50 years? Tadd's Steakhouse has been a fixture at 160 Powell Street since the 1950's (I know, because this was one of two places that my mother would feed us when we visited San Francisco in the 50's). The name of the game here is volume, lots of steaks, salads and potatoes have been served at Tadd's over the years and while not gourmet, the place still serves a pretty good meal at an inexpensive price...
Oakville Grocery Oakville, CA
Yes, there is take-out available here, but it is the range and depth of grocery selections that have made the Oakville Grocery famous. From wonderful fresh breads to the finest wines, this is a great place to just stop and wander the through the isles. The selections of vinegars, mustards and a wide variety of assorted condiments makes for an interesting way to take a (sometimes very needed) break from wine tasting. A very helpful staff also adds to the shopping (or just looking) experience...
Cole's Chop House Napa, CA
Cole's Chop House resides in a recently renovated one-hundred year old building located in downtown Napa. Cole's Chef-owner (Gary Cole of Celadon fame), is a local resident who takes much pride in this, his second Napa restaurant. The very solid menu features what you would expect, lamb and pork chops, and beef of many varieties. We enjoyed the salads and split the filet, which went great with the grilled asparagas. The extensive wine list offers lots of local and other surprises. Leave room for the desserts, as they too are wonderful. Free valet parking is offered, so take your time and enjoy this delightful dining experience...
Fatapple's Berkeley, CA
I like Fatapple's for their hamburgers, which are not your regular fast-food type of burgers. Lots of other nice looking items are available, but the real draw for me is the hamburger. There must be a draw here, as the line at lunch always seems to be steady...
Rick & Ann's Berkeley, CA
Rick & Ann's has been a Berkeley/Oakland favorite for many years now, still "undiscovered" but always pleasing too. Located in the shadow of the Claremont Resort, R&A's serves a very good breakfast, lunch and dinner to a crowd, so you might have to wait for a table, even with a reservation. Still, I've enjoyed each and every meal that I had here, and I think that it is well worth the wait...
Fentons Creamery & Restaurant Oakland, CA
Hey, this is an ice cream place first, so don't expect to get an outstanding meal here. Lots of kids (usually) and adults, too, all looking for their milk and sugar fix. Fenton's has been a fixture for years now, and there is no reason that it will change. If ice cream is your "thing" then Fenton's might well be the place for you...
In-N-Out Hamburgers Mill Valley, CA
This is the Southern Marin In-N-Out Burger store and it is walk-up only (what, no drive thru allowed in Mill Valley? McDonald's just down the road has one!). If this is your kind of hanburger place, then go right ahead and enjoy. The burgers, french fries and drinks are standard In-N-Out fare, nothing but formula stuff is allowed. Still, the food is fresh and the surroundings are always kept as clean as possible. In-N-Out can always be counted on the serve up some pretty good stuff, if this is your style of dining...
