    I am pretty surprised by the raters here because I have been here multiple times and have enjoyed my experience every time. The service is impeccable and the meat is really well done. I have been to my share and know good steak and I am comfortable spending 50-60 bucks a head for good steak. I was here one time and the NY steak I had was slightly overdone. I sent it back and they brought a new one out in less than 10 min. They also had the manager come over and apologize and sent us a free dessert! That was not required but the gesture was appreciative. The great part about this place is that the steaks come out sizzling hot which is the best because once the meat is room temperature it loses some of its flavor. I would go back without question.

    this place is great! Not only is it a bar, but you can play games there too! It's not just for those who want to get wasted, well, you could but this place is also for those who want to hang out with a drink or play darts. Although those who play darts and are wasted could be dangerous to others. Regardless, its tough getting a table here because everyone who is there will be there for a couple of hours.

    I go to this gym about twice a week since it is near my office. I like this gym over the one at Cox which recently closed because they have TV's and you can hook up your headphones and listen to the TV while running on the treadmill or elliptical. Unfortunately with any gym it will have a "Gym" smell. The main reason I go there is because it has a basketball court which I try to play as much as I can. The court is fairly small and you can only play 4v4 since the court is so small. When I go there (8:30-11pm) there is a line and it gets busy so you have to wait for a while. They used to close the court at 11pm but recently they have been keeping it open longer. They also have a small swimming area with 3 or 4 lanes where you can swim. Overall the gym is good and not overly crowded.

    This place is a decent place for Japanese food. There was no wait when we walked in but when we left it got really busy. I had their ramen on the suggestion from my friend. He goes there a lot and swears by the place. The ramen was definitely the right choice. It had a lot of flavor and came with chicken which flowed with the rest of the dish. Unfortunately my order came out last which was unusual because ramen doesn't take too long to make. I myself am not a huge fan of the place but possibly with more visits my reviews will change.

    This place is one of the better places to eat sushi in the San Jose area. The place is always well maintained and it looks definitely high class when you walk in. The waitstaff is always friendly and they are attentive as well. I always get the lion king roll and Jimbo's which are there specialty. Before I liked sushi the bento box was a hit. It gave me two selection with a small selection of little eats like pickled vegetables and a nice fruit jello to finish off the meal. The green tea ice cream is really good too, nice and creamy with a good amount of tea flavor as to not overpower you.

    this place is supposed to compete with Sushi O Sushi which is nearly across the street. I went here with co-workers near the end of their lunchtime. The place was pretty deserted when we came in here but the waitstaff was friendly. I ordered the bento box which was decent but pretty standard for a japanese restaurant. My co-worker ordered the salmon teriyaki which he liked. However my other co-worker ordered the sashimi and he got really sick after he ate it. He has now sworn off Cherry Sushi so I am wary. Since I didn't eat it I will not give a lower rating but it is something to consider.

    This place is really good but just unhealthy. I try to be healthy but if I don't then this is the place to go. They give you huge portions of rice, meat and salad. My favorite is the chicken katsu with double rice. I don't care for the salad and if you are eating here veggies isn't on your mind. The chicken is nicely fried and the bigger portions are moist but the end pieces can be crispier. The sauce they give you is also really good and I always pour it over the rice and meat. I cannot finish it and I consider myself a big eater.

    Panda express is a cheap place to get chinese food. It is something I would crave once in a while, but definitely not more than once a month. The portions are pretty big so even a 2 item meal would be plenty for someone like myself. I usually get the tofu and either a veggie/meat platter. I prefer the fried rice to the noodles just becasue I think it has more flavor. It doesn't get too crowded there and if it does the line moves fairly quickly.

    The burgers are good, and so are they fries and such, but the prices are way overpriced. There are no meal deals for them so basically everything is a la carte. I can't bring myself to pay almost 13-14 dollars for a burger, fries and a drink when there are other establishments that can give me the same thing for half the price. If you just have to have it, by all means, but if you just need a burger I would suggest Rose's Cafe or In and Out for a better deal.

    I ate there only one time but I was not too impressed by the quality of food. I had several choices off the sushi boat selection but I might of been there later in the day (3-4pm) and the sushi did not look fresh. They give you several choices in terms of prices but even though I spent about 10 dollars with tip I was not left full at all. I had gotten 2 or 3 different plates and I was only about 50 percent full. I would try it again with hopefully better luck with the freshness of the fish at a later date.
