I went to Riva the other day for a late lunch. My boyfriend and I were seated right away and the servers were very attentive, and I mean ALL the servers... not just the one that was assigned to our table. The view is amazing, and it's a nice casual place that isn't too expensive.
The calamari here was good, though the pieces are a little too big for my taste. I ordered the fish and chips which was excellent and huge! There were 3 pieces of fish and I could only manage 1 piece. The fries were nice and crispy.
Be forewarned though... the fried food is FRIED, so if you don't like really greasy food, order something else off of the menu.
I don't order burgers here anymore because no matter how cooked I've asked them to be, they're so pink I'm slightly scared to eat them.
I am however hooked on their sweet potato fries and sauce... love it!
Tao Tao beef has got to be one of my most favorite foods on the planet! If you've never tried it before, you're missing out.
I can't get enough of the chicken salad here, and the sweet and sour pork, and although I don't personally like prawns that much, my friends have gotten into fights over the honey walnut prawns, so I guess they're good =)
They have a nice bar at Tao Tao's too. The Mai Tais are a favorite.
I used to go to Sushi Tomo every week when I worked nearby because the bento box was a great deal. The food is good, but not great.
The service is severely lacking. There was one day that aside from the waitress giving my friend something she definitely didn't order (she was given sushi and she was very obviously pregnant!), our water wasn't refilled once, and we were waiting so long to get our bill that we finally had to ask for it at the front. I got chased out the door by what I think was the manager asking why I gave such a low tip. I felt like I was being accosted! Aren't tips supposed to be discretionary? I'm normally a very generous tipper, but I'm not going to give someone something for nothing. I explained to him about the lack of service, but that was embarrassing! Ever since then I haven't gone back.
They were the photographers at my friend's wedding and I just had to write a review about it. When my friend sent me the link to view her pictures I was amazed! There were hundreds and hundreds of photos of absolutely every candid moment. In addition to the bride and groom, they got a lot of great shots of the guests (including one of me and my boyfriend that I am definitely getting a copy of), which a lot of photographers don't pay that much attention to.
I love this place! The people are friendly and the food is the best (the Los Altos Sub is my personal favorite). It has the best deli sandwiches by far! They have a freshly baked bread that you won't find anywhere else.
Love, Love, Love this place! Yes, it's expensive, but the food is well worth it.
The service was fast and friendly and the ambiance is great. I had the kobe beef which was fantastic, and the mac n cheese with truffles is the best I've ever had. The cotton candy for dessert was a nice touch too.
Love, love, love the carrot bread here! I always come to Mimi's just so I can buy an extra loaf to bring home.
I normally just order the turkey club for lunch, which is good. I enjoy the casual comfortable atmosphere of the place.
I came into the Outrage salon about 3 years ago and had Patty as a hairdresser. I've never been happier with my hair! She gave me a specific color/cut that I hadn't been able to get at any other salon, and we had a lot of fun. I'll never go any other place.
This place is good. The couple that runs the place always remember your name... they're really nice. The sandwiches are very basic, but really tasty.
