I highly recommend the Fairmont Grill. I had the New York steak sandwich medium rare which was cooked to perfection. The fries were fresh and the mac n cheese melted in your mouth. Our waiter was new but not lacking in attentiveness or politeness. They had a variety of lunch specials that I can't wait to return and try.

Eager to Return!

This is one of the best dining experiences I've had in San Jose. As soon as you walk in the door, you'll notice the great atmosphere, ambiance and friendly, attentive staff. The menu is robust and everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed their meal - from the first piece of Shrimp to the last bite of Key Lime Pie. As for an entree, I would highly recommend the trout. Whether you're meeting a client, relaxing ... view more

Being the only two customers in the whole restaurant I took the chopsticks that came with my order and started to play ting ting on my plate an... view more

Extremely dissappointed, again!

We decided to try Grill on the Alley even though we'd had a really bad experience a few years back. Maybe it had changed. We had reservations and we were seated at the round table just as you walk into the restaurant. My father and husband were being bumped by the staff since they were sitting right in front of the bus station and we were right in the middle of traffic. We asked to move. Our first mistake. We should ... view more

Extremely Overpriced, steak was not so good, below average service.

Ambiance nice upon arrival. Super quick service as soon as we sat down, but then that slowed down quickly. Found hair in butter that came with bread. Complained, got new butter ?! After sticker shock from the menu, I expected perfection! $42.50 for small filet mignon, $61.50 for a rib eye. Average taste. Could have done better myself at home. Tummy is wrecked right now, & has been for past 45 mins. Dessert (carrot... view more
