Food is great Macho Salad, roasted chicken and ribs, grilled artichoke, corn bread - lots of favorites! Quip heard in downtown Los Altos: Downtown Mountain View is for restaurants; downtown Los Altos for grooming services like haircuts. . Recent lunch at Ristorante Il Porcino was anticipated with more pleasure once I read in Dale Bentson's newspaper review posted in the window that it not only had history in various Los Altos locations including the same one, 10 years ago but more significantly, is operated by a member of the same Turkish-born family as Il Porcino in Fremont both use the same mushroom logo. Had to ask twice for ice and ketchup. Menu items include rotisserie chicken with spinach rice, French dip, roasted chicken, prime rib, skillet corn bread, mac and cheese and seared ahi tuna salad. Had to ask twice for drinks and were served an additional beer. We will go there again soon, and recommend to friends.
Los Altos Grill is a restaurant in Los Altos, California. Backround: Downtown Los Altos in recent decades has a high restaurant mortality rate. We found out that if we brought our own wine, there was no corkage fee for the first bottle. And in the early to middle 1990s when Fremont was notorious among residents for having only some four non-chain restaurants, Il Porcino was like Pearl's Cafe under its original owners a bright light in my experience, compensating somewhat for the limited selection. From Our Wood Fired Rotisserie At Los Altos Grill, we take rotisserie cooking seriously.
The interior of Los Altos Grill is decorated with a gorgeous rustic fireplace, leather booth seating, large windows, wooden paneling, rustic wooden beams across the ceiling, wall-mounted televisions and an oversized bar. A couple of other groups who came in after us were seated before us, which always confuses me, considering we were there for the first reso of the evening. Our waiter, Jimmy was very good, bringing things when asked, explaining things well. The cochinita pibil was delicious! The serving lady was obviously very busy that night but singly handled all tables extremely efficiently and cheerfully. This was a busy place and I enjoyed having a table near the kitchen to be able to see the plates being assembled. All this makes it the most desirable venue in the heart of Silicon Valley to host your friends, families and colleagues.
The tables can be set up for a corporate event, dressed up for a festive celebration or laid smart for a formal event. I saw two new Italian restaurants opening next door to each other on State St. Didn't apologize for taking so long, but asked how the food was. Complement your dinner with one of our signature margaritas or a glass of wine from our extensive list focused on California vintages. Featuring a large island bar situated next to an exhibition kitchen in the round, the energy of the Grill is palpable through the room and out onto the patio in the warmer months. The low-key proprietor surfaced at appropriate moments with a two-pound hunk of Reggiano and a grater, for the pasta dishes.
He finally showed up with the bottle when most of the 4 of us were pretty well into our entrees.

We don't go out much to eat and it was disappointing to have to strain to hear each other. The booths are comfortable and the wait staff efficient. Each day a hardwood fire is built in our stone oven.
We will return for the cozy feeling of dining, but it is still too limited in menu and prices for us! From lifelong salmon eaters: the idea is not to mask the taste of the fish. The entire experience was beyond poor. The bar is fun, bartenders friendly and skilled, cocktails are excellent and wine list is not expansive but also not expensive! We really like the atmosphere - vibrant and interesting to people watch. Searching this board yielded little info.

A Local Gathering Spot A local institution in Silicon Valley since 1996, Los Altos Grill offers a warm and gracious atmosphere with an earthy palette of woods punctuated by unique artworks. Our food experience was mixed. This modern eatery offers both indoor and outdoor dining. The food was very good, tasty, and light.
At least two other Italian restaurants currently operate within a couple blocks of Il Porcino: Pompeii, 100 State Street, and Bella Vita, 376 First Street same side as Draeger's. . The salmon dinner also included masked potatoes and broccoli. The salmon dinner was not good, as they use a style of charring the salmon which gives a burnt taste. Excellent job on standards such as ribs and cornbread. We had a 4pm reservation and were seated by around 4:10 after being asked to wait a few minutes.
