Katy's Korner

Reviewed By CreateSF - San Francisco, California

Great quality breakfast menu, featuring many different styles of your standard breakfast and brunch items. I've never seen so many different types of egg Benedict. It's no frills when it comes to beverages. Coffee, cream, sugar, sweet and low are your only options there, no lattes thank you very much. I ordered the standard 3 eggs any way you want with large cut bacon. It did NOT disappoint. You can sit indoors or out. They have a great outdoor wood patio, and from what I could tell, outside at least, they were dog friendly. It was a bit on the pricey side, but worth every penny. And excellent service.

Esin Restaurant & Bar

Esin has been a neighborhood jewel since opening in 1998. The name Esin is not only the name of one of the owners but also means “inspiration”. The food is the passion of Chef & Owners Curtis and Esin deCarion. They strive to create cuisine that is fresh, seasonal, and prepared with great care. The fare is American with bits of Mediterranean influences. The wine list has been recognized by Wine Spectator & Wine Enthusiast magazines. <br> Esin Restaurant & Bar relocated in July of 2008 to the Newest upscale lifestyle center The Rose Garden in Danville. The freshly designed dining room offers warm and comforting tones.<br>Be sure to save room for one of Esin’s fresh made desserts that have become so well known.

Calm contemporary decor, a waitstaff that know they are there to make your dining experience the best it can be (and not to be your best friend), good variety on the menu, the best salmon (it's usually a special and always over something really interesting) - and the most incredible selection of desserts, all fabulous. Try the prawn cobb, the meze platter, the pasta special - the fried chicken sandwich at lunch. And save room for dessert. I always check out the dessert case on my way in. We have a friend who usually shares but will not share the lemon merengue tart with gingersnap cookie crust. Once you taste it, neither will you! Well worth a trip to Danville.

Clementine's

Reviewed By Maria O - Oakland, California

This has been our "go to" place for breakfast/brunch after a workout. They have everything that you could want and at amazingly reasonable prices. On Sundays, they have a no corkage fee so you can bring your own bottle of wine or sparkling/prosecco and there is no corkage fee - and they are totally cool about it! I like to order bits and pieces - 2 eggs a la carte, 2 pieces of fried chicken, bacon and their great hashbrowns. They also give you cornbread - you have to ask for real butter or else you will get a tub of margarine. The eggs have never disappointed me - I like my yolks very soft and they always get it right. My hubby orders the Eggs Sardou, gumbo and eats half of my dish. The salads are large - I have asked for the half portion in the past as the full portion is so big and I end up taking it home. They often have a clam special - it is always very good one time we ordered two!! The great part of this place is the service. They pretty much go out of their way to accommodate requests. In all of the times that i have been there they have never said no to me. Love having a nice comfort food breakfast while watching a game!

Revel Kitchen and Bar

Reviewed By SJDTravel1 - Lafayette, California

Lunch at Revel - started with awesome deviled eggs with truffle oil. On to amazing pulled pork tostadas (3 to an order) stacked with delicious stuff like onions and citrusy aioli. Then we shared lamb sliders and fried chicken sliders which were also very good. They have a pretty decent wine list and a full bar. The service was superb. Lots of street parking nearby.

Gianni's Italian Bistro

Reviewed By Sean M - McKinney, Texas

I happened upon Gianni's when in town with a co-worker. Highly rated, we decided to give it a try and were impressed! The gnocchi was amazing, the Caesar salad was flavorful and fresh, and all other courses were delicious. My co-worker had severe dietary restrictions due to a digestive condition, and the chef made up a special dish to accommodate him. Friendly staff. I would strongly recommend!

Piatti Danville

Ristorante Piatti features a menu with recipes complimenting the various regions of Italy. It has a casual yet sparkling atmosphere with authentic regional Italian cuisine. Piatti&apos;s success can be attributed to its staff and its approach to food, wine, and the dining experience.

Reviewed By 58Tinlady - San Ramon, California

Two friends took me for a birthday dinner on 01/03. I've visited Piatti's before and was very excited to go again. However, it seemed as though our waiter was just not into working that evening. We had to search for him several times and he was just plan unhappy. The food was okay but his attitude pretty much overshadowed the entire experience. Just too bad is all.

Brass Door

Reviewed By jdc1948 - Castro Valley, California

My lady friend and I wanted to try the Brass Door again for a nice evening out, we weren’t disappointed. I had a fillet mignon, and she had the petralli sole fish special. Both were delicious, I in particular hadn’t had a decent steak in some time. Cooked to perfection and so tender you could almost cut it with a fork. The place was packed but the service was excellent, we both enjoyed the Brass Door immensely!

The Peasant And The Pear

Reviewed By tombrady127 - Beaufort, South Carolina

after being seated , we waited, had to go back to hostess for service, table behind us was excessively loud, short ribs were very fatty, the mushroom risotto had sat under a heating light and was luke warm , also, In my opinion was not worth $23.00. Others in our group were basically satisfied with their meals , maybe we were just under a bad star that evening !

In-N-Out Burger

At In-N-Out Burger, quality is everything. Stop by to enjoy our menu of hamburgers, cheeseburgers, french fries and shakes. In-N-Out makes fast food the old fashioned way.

Reviewed By MtbJohn - San Ramon, California

I've been a fan of In-N-Out for years. I love the simplicity of the menu. Burgers, fries, shakes and drinks. Everything is fresh as there are no freezers at In-N-Out. You can actually see them peeling and slicing potatoes for the fries. And the fries are my favorite. I always eat them all before I even touch my burger. They are absolutely the best when they are hot and fresh.

Bridges Restaurant & Bar

California America with European/Asian influenced cuisine served in a casual~elegant setting.

Reviewed By FarmerRK - Moraga, California

We had lunch during the Xmas holidays at Bridges, restaurant was quite full with people celebrating. My husband had a hamburger and I had a shrimp salad. For dessert we had a chocolate cake. All the food was well prepared although the salad needed more dressing (I asked the server for more and she gladly provided it). The portions were ample; the dessert was on the small side. Service was good and efficient. Their prices are on the high side but it is worth going for special occasions.
