Success! Thanks for posting your review of Arcadia Restaurant. You’ve done the world some good today.

Terrible service was shocking

Going away on business alone is difficult when you don't know your bearings and I traditionally go to the hotel restaurant for my first few meals. When I went for breakfast on day 1, I was told I could sit, but that it would be10 to15 minutes before a server would be able to serve me -- what?! The restaurant was less than 1/8 full. I've never been told that at a restaurant. When I came back for lunch I was told the ... view more

Great Food - impeccable Service

When I first arrived, it was difficult to find the restaurant as there was no signage. We arrived at the restaurant early and decided to have drinks in the bar. The bartender was terrific! I got to try Reislings by the glass that are very rarely available. What a treat!\r \r Dinner was great - we started with the ahi tartare (classic) and shared a huge ""cowboy"" ribeye, with duck fat fries (yum! I have to go ... view more

Lobster Corndogs, Yum! Crabcakes and Fresh Seafood Delicous

Bar is intimate and service is smashing! Location is superb (San Carlos and Market). Bartender (girl) remembers my drink and I frequent once per month. Who knew what Downtown San Jose could offer in service! Impressed with the super effiicient service at a subtle level.\r \r

Big Disappointment

I had lunch with a friend at the restaurant. The table was not setup properly. A fork and a napkin is missing. I ordered the Ahi Tuna tartare as appetizer. I almost finished with the appetizer, then the waiter brought me the toast that's suppose to serve with the Ahi. After we finished the appetizers, the waiter (a different waiter) took the dishes away, including the bread and the butter (please, the entree hadn't c... view more

A good alternative to the city

It was a stormy week and needed to host a special occasion dinner, rather than drive to SF fighting traffic, parking, and bad weather, we decided it was the perfect reason to venture south to sample yet another Michael Mina spot. There were few dinner-goers mostly conventioneers at the restaurant's bar which is the ONLY bar inside the Marriott (loud, noisy, and a bit obnoxious). Foodwise, however, we were not disap... view more

I'll never return there.

Sat down at a table that wasn't completely set, glasses were dirty, old utensils on the floor at my wifes feet. Ordered tea and got a pot of tea with no cup. After asking 3 times for a cup, it finally came but the tea was cold. We tried ordered some soda to go with our meal instead. It didn't arrive until AFTER we had finished our meal. Not once was our water glass refilled. Menu called for baby carrots in a ... view more

Great Food and Desserts to Die For!

I had the evening's tasting menu and if you plan on doing the same, skip the toasty dinner bread rolls that come out with sea salt, anchovy, and sun dried tomato butters. The French onion soup was sweet and silky, and the tableside prepped Ahi Tuna Tartare was delightfully fresh. The Steak Rossini (filet mignon and seared foie gras) was so rich and super tender, that I could've mistaken it for Kobe! I regret not f... view more

The service at Denny's was superior to Arcadia

Although the restuarant was only 1/3 occupied, and many servers were standing around, the service was horrible. It was a half hour after we were seaed before a server showed up for our dinner order (no drink orders taken prior). We ordered drinks and it was another 30 minutes before drinks arrived (an hour after being seated). That was pretty much the better part. The quality of the food was high, although many o... view more

Falls short of Best of 9.6 rating

This place was a disappointment. There was no hostess at the greeting table. Someone finally appeared 10 minutes later. 10 more minutes passed before our waiter appeared. My drink order arrived 20 minutes later. The noise level was uncomfortable. I could hear intimate details from a table 10 feet away. Our waiter was nice, but seemed rushed and not interested in us. When our food arrived, the portions were surprising... view more

One of My Favorites

I love Arcadia! Excellent food! Offerings include American classics with an upscale twist (i.e. Maine Lobster Pot Pie, Kobe beef ""Chicken"" Fried Steak). Everything was delicious. The restaurant looks much better in the evenings than its pictures indicate. This restaurant has an intimate feel. For a romantic dinner, request a table by the back window. Service was good, but a little rough around the edges.... view more
