Happy Hollow Park
1300 Senter Rd, San Jose, CA 95112
I have always been a big fan of Happy Hollow and with the remodel excited to bring a couple of my students for the day. We were pleasantly surprised with the rides, the animals, the food and the care that went into the design of the park. A must for any preschooler or young grammer schooler.

Went to the Frameline's film festival the other night to view Baby Jane? The theatre was packed with an enthusiatic audience. The enviornment is wonderful, the decor magnificent. A thrill to watch a film there. It is great that the theatre was restored to it's true intent. Love seeing films in old theatres. The cinaplex can not hold a candle to the old beauties.

Love coming to dine here. The buttermilk chicken is one of my all time favorites. Good bone warming food. You can not beat the uniqueness of the restaurants design and theme. The carpaccio is great, the beverage selection wide, the meals offered are all yummy. We have not gone for brunch but the chance to dine outside is appealing on some SF days. Give this place a try I am confident you will not be disappointed.

My husband choose this restaurant for it's location and reviews. We had a family Birthday celebration there. My daughter ordered the Chicken Marsala which was fantastically tasty, my son ordered the special risotto and crab cakes which he enjoyed very much. My husband had the trout pasta special and was quite pleased. My oldest daughter enjoyed the potato leek soup. However, my pasta came beyond al dente-it had to be sent back-my first send back ever! The dish never really did it for me (pasta bologense). I might try this restaurant again for the Chicken Marsala. The desserts were grand. The waiter gave us one dessert at no charge-a nice touch.

Did not hold our reservation even thoough we were present 12 minutes before our time. Seated others and seated others before us...we waited 35 minutes after our reservation for our table. Yikes...loud, crowded tables, small portions, good eating, but think other restaurants offer meals just as good for less and bigger protions. Sorry! But if being seen were other are being seen...this is the place for you.
