Indian | Mountain View, Peninsula

The service was very good as the waiter was helpful in selecting some choices from the varied menu. The spice level was moderate in for me, but for some of my friends it was a bit spicy. Next time I will have to ask re: spicy levels as that was one failing of the waiter not offering or indicating the heat level. With that said, it was for dinner and family style, so I would recommend for groups willing to share which makes the value of the meal better as the portions was fair (appropriate) for the price.

Contemporary French | Mountain View, Peninsula

Chez TJ was selected for a birthday dinner. The tasting menu, unknown in advance, featured many fish dishes, all tasty, but I would have preferred more meat. Presentation was quite attractive. Wine pairings were appropriate. The price turned out to be quite high, compared to what I am used to. Server was affable; sommelier was less clear and friendly. More

The service was superb, reasonable prices, the food excellent, though my dining partner thought it was too salty. When she gave that feedback, they brought her another dish without so much salt. Very accommodating. And the happy hour drinks lasted until 6:30 : ) More

Pizza Bar | Palo Alto, Peninsula

Pizzeria Delfina is one of my favorite restaurants in Palo Alto. It is a go to for everything from special occasions to casual get together‘s with friends. Also great for a table of two or large group. Their pizza is amazing! As are many other items including the meatballs, the vegetables, the salad ragazza etc. they also have a solid wine list and some fun specialty cocktails. Typically friendly and efficient service. The back patio is the best.. highly recommend! More

Mediterranean | San Carlos, Peninsula

I, Shalva, bought Agora in April, and since then I have been working on creating a restaurant that embodies the principle of the ancient Greek agora; a place wherre the community can come together to enjoy fresh food and delicious wine.

Since I immigrated to the U.S. from the republic of Georgia, I have wanted to bring my culture's culinary tradition tothe Bay Area, and slowly, that is becoming a reality as we start to incorporate Georgian dishes.

My son and I are in the restaurant every night, so come by and say hi! More
