Food was good. Service was a little impersonal. You can get a quick meal after a long day of meetings

Good food on a Sunday, but horrible service. We went to Il Fornaio for lunch with some friends before a show. The service was atrocious this time. We sat down and it took over ten minutes for water to be brought to the table. I...More

As title says the food was good but the service was slow pace so not a good place of you are in a hurry. Also, food portions vary a lot based on what you order so make sure you asked the server.

Elegant Italian breakfast and full bar service. Excellent customer service. Beautiful decor. Pricey but worth it.

Service wasn't exactly speedy at Il Fornaio. Food quality was better than Arcadia, situated across the street, but half the price. Go figure. Westin restaurant (Il Fornaio) vs Marriott restaurant (Arcadia).

I had dinner here with a group of a conference. Food was good although I found it not exceptional. The menu for the private dining was good, enough choice. We could have used an enthusiastic Italian waiter to explain the menu and the wines better.

The hotel offers valet parking, but there is also parking in the San Jose Convention Center lot and 2nd Street garage. We validate those lots for two hours.
