Some of the servers here are just great! One waitress hadn't seen me for months and last night she remembered that I like my "sauce on the side" without me even telling her. But I had to wait 25 minutes for my take out order, and the food wasn't that good. The pies seem to be more about quantity rather than quality. With exception to their delicious, seasonal fresh strawberry pie, the rest of the flavors that I have tried seem about as bland as buying a frozen, thaw and serve pie from the grocery store. The only other good thing going there is that they are open 24 hours a day, and we definitely need more places like that in San Mateo.
Creator/chef Alicia Petrakis and staff ROCK with regional comfort food & Latino, Pacific Rim & Middle Eastern influences. Stone fruits, corn and tomatoes were plentiful on this day, she shared. The dishes on our table are flavorful and fanciful. Filo “Stogies” filled with a wild mushroom duxelle (shallots, white wine, cream, gruyere, parsley) and an ashy tip of sesame seed and parmesan appear to be a fat cigar.
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!
It's usually "okay", but I have been in there many times and found the restrooms dirty and the service slow. It's overpriced for what you get, and I can't understand what all of the fuss is about.
Heidi's has great homecooked food, namely the pot roast. Their pies, chocolate cream & strawberry rhubarb were wonderful!
Excellent food!! good environment and excellent service. I loved their hand made tortillas!!
