I've been getting my haircut here for the last two years and have had nothing but the best experience with the staff. Karen used to cut my hair every time, but then she left and I ended up working with Lisa who has been equally great as well. Great and convenient location & excellent service!10/12/2013 Steve,
This is one of the best most reliable (non fancy, non over priced) sushi restaurants that I've been to. A neighborhood favorite that could go against any of the top sushi joints in SF, LA or NYC for freshness, taste, service & reliability. Don't get me wrong, you're not going to get Nobu or any other insanely fancy sushi restaurant caliber food, but for everyday sushi, I have not found a better place yet!
After getting burned by some "reputable" Mercury dealers I decided to try out Boatmasters about 6 years ago on a recommendation from a fellow fisherman and I can honestly say it was the best outcome I could have hoped for. Drew, Mike & the rest of the staff are true professionals that are above all else, honest, trustworthy and knowledgeable. Every single time I bring my boat to them, I know my most precious toy is in the best hands possible. Not to mention they are FAST!
Wow, I've been living in Almaden my entire life & have never once been here. What a mistake. Just got my first sandwich and bowl of soup at the Sandwich Mill and it was amazing! They don't have sandwich places like this anymore, the market has been taken over by Subway, Quiznos & Togos, but the sandwich mill is original & more than satisfying.
If you love sandwiches and are tired of the standard run of the mill commercial shops then YOU MUST TRY THIS PLACE ASAP!
This experience was entirely unforgettable. After our first meal at Boon, my Fiancee and I decided to try as many things on the menu as possible, so we visited Boon for Dinner on a Thursday night and again for lunch on the following Saturday. This didn't workout too well, as we ended up ordering almost the identical meal twice in a row.
We started off with the famous flash fried Brussels Sprouts, which are absolutely the best cooked & flavored vegetable that I've ever put in my mouth. Saying anything else would simply not do them justice, so I'll stop there.
Second, we ordered the Truffle Mac'n Cheese, which was a decadent creamy masterpiece itself! Highly recommended, but very rich...we actually ended up ordering another serving towards the end of the meal...so I guess it wasn't too rich!
Third, we split the pork belly which was really good but not amazing. Our main issue was with the way it was prepared...it kind of tasted like a boiled version, which some people may really enjoy. We however really like pork belly with a cooked crust, with taste from the grill left behind.
Finally, we split the duck entree which was cooked to absolute perfection and tasted just as good, if not better than duck we've had at French Laundry.
When we went back for lunch 2 days later, we ordered the Brussels Sprouts, Mac'n Cheese and the Burger with Truffle fries. This was perfectly cooked and just as tasty as the best burgers I've had in the past. The fries were really good too, but the truffle taste was much lighter than the Mac'n Cheese, but still amazing.
This is truly an amazing restaurant...we're already planning on our next day trip from San Jose just for this food!
My Fiancee and I stayed here for three nights and had an absolutely amazing time. The inn is very well maintained, the service is excellent and it if you're looking for a relaxing weekend with amazing cuisine, you absolutely have to stay here.
We enjoyed all the amenities to the fullest and can't wait for our next trip back!
My fiancee and I stopped by here this past weekend and we really enjoyed ourselves and the experience. We were among the fortunate tasters to be served by Bay, who was nothing short of awesome. He truly knew his stuff, taught us a lot and before we knew it almost 2 hours had gone by and we couldn't believe how time flew!
We ended up buying a few bottles and can't wait to enjoy them very soon!
Just had my first eye exam with Dr. Linda Hur. She was excellent and I highly recommend her. She did a great job at not wasting time, working efficiently but also taking time away from her tasks to explain to me what she was doing & why certain things were important to follow.
The selection of glasses in the office downstairs was amazing as well. I haven't actually purchased them yet, but I did find two great pairs that I like.
Overall, this facility was an excellent experience and I highly recommend them!
I've been to a lot of the top steakhouses across the US and at first was a little apprehensive of STK, just because I like to stay away from the establishments that have a bunch of other locations...I've got a major fear and dislike of chain type restaurants.
Luckily my gamble paid off and this restaurant was absolutely amazing. My fiancee and I each had steak, she had flank steak & I ordered the porterhouse. Both were cooked to absolute perfection and literally melted in your mouth. We also ordered a few sides, one of them being truffle butter, which we used on the steak which added to the perfection. The other two sides we ordered (macaroni & cheese & creamy spinach) were nothing short of amazing either.
I highly highly recommend this if you're looking for a perfectly cooked & amazing tasting piece of red meat!
