General Info
Open and inviting. Innovative and energetic. Playful surprises are found throughout the menu, as well as the restaurant itself. The menu has been designed to give you options, is perfect for sharing and you are encouraged to order however the mood strikes you, so don't be shy about ordering more of... Well, anything. Salads and pastas created with greens and veggies from the rooftop garden should please locavores. While burger lovers will appreciate the balance of the house grind that blends brisket, short rib and sirloin. Between bites be sure to take a look at the beautiful, "Living Wall". A wall of plants and herbs living and growing inside the restaurant itself. Take a peak at the "Peninsula Room", an homage to the Hotel Benjamin Franklin located directly in front the exhibition kitchen. The beverage program takes a backseat to none. Eight rotating craft beers, hand-crafted cocktails, and a first-class wine program.

Great place for exotic wine

There are so many choices and it's hard to not try them all. The place also has a superb romantic atmosphere. Highly recommended as a dating spot!

California Fare in Downtown San Mateo

Astaria has a magnificent selection of wine. My fiance and I were looking for a good restaurant with live music. We found it in downtown San Mateo. The staff is very friendly. The food is fresh and a lot of it is organic. Romantic atmosphere in front and back of restaurant. We highly recommend!

YMCA folk love it

Astaria offers delicious lunches and dinners and scrumptious snacks for meetings. It offers a wonderful, quiet place for lunch meetings, special dinners and celebrations, and small-group gatherings. The restaurant is located in downtown San Mateo, new the new main library and "M" is for Mystery bookstore. We often make reservations there through "Open Table." We love the owner, too!

GREAT FUN

HA PPY HOUR AND WINE LIST WERE GREAT AS WERE THE APPS. WE'LL BE BACK FOR DINNER, THE WHOLE MENU LOOKS LIKE FUN. THE AMBIENCE WAS WARM BUT STILL CLASSY, AND THE GENTLEMAN MANAGING THE NIGHT WE WERE THERE WENT OUT OF HIS WAY TO MAKE SURE WE WERE HAPPY. LOOKS LIKE A WINNER.

Underwhelming

High marks for ambiance, especially the fellow who sang last night. Service was slow. Appetizers/salads were good, entrees underwhelming. Didn't get to dessert, but the menu choices looked good for that category.

Slooooooow service

We ordered the crab crakes, meze and paella. Everything was fantastic.

Unfortunately, the servers were very slow. It took forever for somebody to come by to take our order. It took even longer for us to get our food. It wasn't just us either - I noticed that everybody else around us was served at a snail's pace as well. Maybe they were down one chef that night? Too bad, because it's the only thing that marred our experience.
