We threw a surprise birthday party for my wife at La Foret and they were superb. The food was fantastic and the staff could not have been more accommodating. This is one of the top 5 restaurants in the South Bay.

Love the setting, always a fabulous menu (love their game entrees), wonderful wait staff. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is the last few times there were loud, boisterous groups dining as well. I know it's hard for management to control, nor would...More

They have a view to a small creek. Nice but not spectacular. The ambience is very nice and you may need 30 min or more from downtown SJ - depending on traffic. Reservations are recommended. Enjoy!!
