I took my husband here for his birthday at the end of October. We absolutely loved it. We've been to numerous 2 and 3 star restaurants both in the Bay Area (last year Benu and Atelier Crenn, the year before Saison and Coi, and Meadowood a few times the year before) and even just a month ago in Europe (Le...

Frustrated for not been able to get in to "French Laundry" for the past many years, so I opted to go to Manresa to celebrate my bday with my BFF. Easier to reserve as long as it's 30 days prior to the day of dining. Got on a waiting list at French Laundry so I'm praying... I was very excited... More

manresa is in the small town in los gatos around 1 hour south of san fran. with wine pairing you pay around 1000$ for 2 but you get what you pay for. every dish was extremely well done and some courses were mind blowing. the service was flawless and very friendly - wine pairing perfect.

Have been wanting to come here for 10 years but was never in the area so we made a deliberate trip just for this and it was worth it. This past year the chef was on PBS' Mind of a Chef, which sealed the deal for wanting to come. Fortunately, some of the dishes from those shows were on the... More

Its too pricey to eat here. But if you are curious of what a 3 M stars restaurant is like and willing to.part with USD500 a head for a tasting menu with wine pairings, then do come for its over the top presentation of dainty food bits in style. The atmosphere is really nice and comfy but on the night... More

For those that enjoy superior food and service, this is it. It is very very pricey ($1,500 with tips, wine pairing for their 8 coarse meal for the four of us, and cocktails before dinner), but our justification was - let's do Manresa and forego going out to nice dinners for a month or two. It was a wonderful 4... More

I thought I'd eaten enough haute cusine, but I was wrong. The experience, and it's an experience not a meal, was ridiculously expensive and worth every penny. I won't go again for a long time, but I will go again. Every flavour and texture was beyond what I could have expected or even imagined. The service impeccable. An amazing evening... More

MUST VISIT!!! If you are at all into fine dining or three Michelin star places this should be on your list in the bay area. It is more innovative than the French Laundry which is very classic dishes and traditional ingredients. Drinks are equally unique and delicious. Stop by Manresa bread next door for some pastries the next day.

This is a small quaint restaurant with excellent service. You will be treated to more then a dozen courses wine pairing if you so wish. The meal will take about 3 hours and you will enjoy very minute

Sampled things I might never try on a menu. Your here to experience new tastes that will expand your palate. Two highlights for me were the Kobe beef and bread, the latter available now at their bakery outlet. Prepare for an extended meal as this takes a whole evening. Wait staff are truly amazing.
