Great place – Great food, and vibe here. Took a client to this place recently, and had a great evening. The staff is very friendly, and the restaurant's decor defintitely impresses. The bartender in the lounge knew how to make a good cocktail, and the atmospehere was pleasant. I loved my main course (the sake baked sea bass), make sure you order it. You won't be dissapointed. A great addition to Palo Alto indeed.
good times – definately a different vibe and atmosphere when compared to other restaurants and bars in the area. there is no reason to drive to SF or NY for that matter for this quality of restaurant. i would highly recommend the wild stripe bass on potato croquette, it was a delight. i look forward to going there again.
Cool vibe and great food – Made for a great rainy night dinner with the four of us. Definately start out in the HUGE lounge that plays cool world beat music. 20 or so wines by the glass including some unique ones. Friendly bartenders. I guess we rubbed elbows with the "in crowd" of hight tech because someone said the founders of Google were there. Overall great wine list with decent prices although the server stumbled on some of our choices. The food--tuna steak over grapes and banananas, scallops with lemon grass, the best shortribs any of us have had and some cool veggie choices. We loved the food and vibe. Some of the most unique food we have had.
Great New Addition to the Palo Alto dining scene – Great ambience, good wine list, very good food with excellent presentation. Very good bar/lounge with a good small plate selection. I took customers for a dinner and was very pleased with the food, the service and the personalized attention. They know their menu and wine list well. For example, the host made two excellent reasonably priced wine recommendations, as well as good choices for entrees.
Sheek - SF or NYC feel – The lounge feel is perfect and is a great place to meet people. After walking around Palo Alto to meet with friends I found this place, nothing else can compare. Dinner tables are seperate from the bar area and has an elegant romantic feel to it. Very attentive to details.
