Rainbow Pizza San Mateo, CA
This place is great! If you love pizza this is the place to go! Very affordable. Good, casual service, although they do get busy and it suffers sometimes. You get so much food! I am a big eater and can barely get past one slice of pizza! You have to try their "appa-sampler" and pizza #13!!! Very yummy! Thanks! Robyn
Alexander's Fish & Chips Kihei, HI
Great fish and chips! Very affordable. The only thing that bugged me is that it was filthy. I mean we stuck to the seats and there was crud everywhere. I would take it next time to go! Thanks! Robyn
Four Seasons Resort Kihei, HI
There are actually a few restaurants at the Four Seasons in Wailea. All of them are great! The poolside lunch is great! Everything is very fresh! Must try the "Fresh Fruit and Sorbet Plate" and the "Cobb Salad." They also make a great Lava Flow drink! Oh yeah and have one of their desserts, they are really goooooood! We also ate at Ferraros, which is what the the poolside restaurant turns into after 6pm. It is the only open, beachside restaurant in the area. We ate when the sun was going down and it was by far the most romantic dinner I have had in my life. We started with the Carpaccio and it was great! My husband had the lamb chops and I had a bean soup. They were unbelievable. The service is excellent. A can't miss if you are staying in the area. We also went to "Seasons" for brunch. This was the best brunch I have ever been to. They had omlettes, french toast, pancakes, pastries, fresh fruit and juices ... I could go on and on and I think I have! The Four Season Resort in Wailea has the some of the best restaurants that I have ever been too!
Thanks!

California Pizza Kitchen San Mateo, CA
I like CPK, although I think that they can be a little pricey for a small amount of food. There service is not great. I think there pizzas are interesting, but not great. Seems like a trendy restaurant that will vanish within five years as people tire of it. Thanks! Robyn
Spiedo San Mateo, CA
I am surprised that people have said that this restaurant has a price range of $10-$15 and I would strongly disagree. The service was pleasent and stuffy, just the way I like it. I had an excellent rabbit there. However, on Valentine's Day a few years ago, I had made reservations for 8:00pm about a month before. When we arrived that evening at about 7:45, there were people pouring onto the street from the restaurant. When I fought my way up to the hostess she explained that they were about 45 minutes behind. Then when I spoke to a lady in line, she said that she had been there for an hour and also had reservations. I thought that was really tacky of Spiedo, as they way overbooked. I was very dissapointed and have not returned since.
Thanks!

Viognier San Mateo, CA
This has to be one of the best restaurants I have been to. I have been there many times and have enjoyed it every time! We always start out with the large seafood platter. It is wonderful and so fresh, a perfect combination with a martini or chardonnay. I always love to get the lobster or duck salad next, both very refreshing. They have an extensive wine list and the servers really know ther stuff. I like the service, very cold and courteous. For dinner I usually have a special. I usually order lamb or shellfish and it has always been superb. There desert list is great. I usually end with the rasberry tart of goat cheese plate. I can't imagine anyone not loving this place and have sent many people there. Do control yourself though, a good bottle of wine, apps, entrees and desert for two will run you about $150-$200. But a very affordable price for the total experience. If you haven't gone already, it is a must try!
Thanks!

Aqua San Francisco, CA
I have been to Aqua a couple of times for lunch. I thought it was really good. I do agree that they have crammed in to many tables in such a small place, so getting around is a pain - a little tacky for such a pretensous place. The food is great but the cost is a bit high for the portions. I had the tuna, I thought it was excellent. I liked the atmosphere overall and would return for a special occasion. I think this restaurant is totally representative of the San Francisco Gourmet food and think that everyone should experience it. Thanks, Robyn
Rubicon San Francisco, CA
I thought the restaurant was great. I had only been there one time for lunch. The food was good and fairly priced. I think what realy sells this place is the atmosphere - very comfortable and elegant. Thanks! Robyn
The Brooklyn Seafood Steak & Oyster House Seattle, WA
What a great place! The service is excellent. The atmosphere is elegant and casual. You must go and sit at the bar and order the oyster/beer sampler! They also have excellent salads. The servers at the bar know just about everything about local food, oysters and breweries. I love this restaurant and go everytime we visit! I can't think of anyone who would not have a good time there! A must experience!!!
Thanks!

Buffalo Grill San Mateo, CA
I have been going to this restaurant since it opened and have always loved it! It is the place that I always bring guests because the food and service are always good. Unless you are going on a Monday or Tuesday I would make a reservation. Best aps: calamari and carpacio. Best entrees: 3 peppercorn steak, roast chicken, lamb, and prime rib. They also make a great martini. (You think that wouldn't be hard, but many restaurants don't!) They also have a great wine selection. Do try! Thanks!
T G I Fridays San Mateo, CA
I have been going to this particular location as long as is has been there. It used to be a fun and affordable place to go for great sandwiches and salads. They took a turn for the worst about 7 or 8 years ago. They have gone off the deep end with the Jack Daniels menu. The new menu is good, it is just more expensive and tastes average at best. I totally agree with Kelly and Chris, the service is down right awful and it is very unclean. They need to straigten up their act befor they go under!!!
Thanks! Robyn
Villa Coffee Shop San Mateo, CA
The food is good, not to be confused with great. It is also a little expensive for the portions and quality of food that you recieve. I think most of their entrees can be compared to a more expensive Denny's meal. They are fairly clean though, which is fairly uncommon for these types of joints. What bothers me most is the service. I have been to few places that offer such bad service. I do not recommend this place to anyone.
Thanks!

Elephant Bar Burlingame, CA
I was not very pleased with this restaurant. To start with, the wait is ridiculous and the waiting room small. They would not let me make reservations, so I was forced to wait an hour to be seated. I would not have gone had I not received a gift certificate for this place as a gift. The service was awful, even for a busy place. The server was rude and pretty much dropped our food and abandoned us. She also got the order wrong. I have heard from others that they have had the same experience with the service. The food was blah and not cheap for this type of restaraunt. I would not go again!
Thanks!

Max's Opera Cafe of Burlingame Burlingame, CA
This restaurant is not to be confused with fine dining. For the style of restaurant it is, it is very good. The singing is wonderful and creates a great atmosphere. It is very noisy and could have been designed better to damper it. The food is great. The desserts are wonderful! Not a great place for a romantic dinner, but more for family fun! My favorite part is the deserts. Huge portions! Wait can be bad on a weekend, so do make reservations!
Thanks!

Millbrae Pancake House Millbrae, CA
It's a good breakfast place if you are just plain hungry and don't feel like getting ready. The food is tasty, hot, and cheap. The service sucks. The parking sometimes sucks. They have crammed way to many seats in one place, so it is hard to move around and very loud. We go there from time to time. The place is fine, although I would not reccomend it to anyone. Thanks!

Brother's Deli Burlingame, CA
I have not noticed any change in this place except for the better. I have been going to this place for at least 25 years. It is the best Jewish deli I have ever been to! They also make the best Matzo Ball Soup that I have ever had. I frequent this place often. The service has always been informal and friendly. Most servers have stayed through the change of ownership. Alot of people really liked the old owner and really felt they were watching an era of mom and pop restaurant owners go when he left. Really not much has changed, except that is is much cleaner now and the decor has been a little updated. I love that less people come now, I am able to get a seat on a Saturday morning without having to wait so long. This is one of my favorite all time restaurants! I would reccomend this to everyone and have!!!
Thanks!

Adeline Market Deli Burlingame, CA
This little store/deli needs some updating and good business sense. First off, the people in this store are very nice and offer great service. This personal service is the only reason that I gave them 2 stars, versus 1. The food is average at best and a little pricey. The store is overall dirty and unorgainized. Most of the food looks like it has been sitting their way too long. I go there from time to time out of sheer conveniance, as they are the only little store in the area. I have a feeling their business survives on their location alone. Everything in the store is way too expensive. I fear that if they do not get their act together they will be gone soon.
Thanks,
