"Hamburger was among the best I've ever had. I like my burgers ultra rare (basically beef tartare with the outer surface seared), and they executed this perfectly."

"My husband and I went for our Anniversary, as we have celebrated there several times over the years. We booked an early dinner and requested a window seat if possible. I figured this would be no problem since we were there early enough. We were seated in an area next to the bar at a very small table. So small the waiter had to move my water to get the bread basket to fit on the table. We were between two larger tables which were very close to ours. When the table next to us took their seats they rubbed their rear end against the edge our table. Not the romantic dinner I was expecting, or used to when visiting the Van's. I guess they want to squeeze as many people as they can instead of making their customers comfortable.
We ended up leaving and went to Izzy's in San Carlos where we were treated like a customer they would like to see again."

"It's worth a trip, even if you're not on the Peninsula. Servers are very attentive, but not invasive. Food prep is always "to order." Prices are on the high side, but you won't be disappointed with what you're paying for. Great atmosphere for dates, family gathering, friendly time."

"I just love The Van's. For special occasions, this is where I want to be with my friends and family. The food is outstanding, comfort food, yet high end. The services is awesome. They hire only the most caring and nice staff. I always feel well taken care of by whoever happens to be serving us. The view is the best on the San Mateo Peninsula. Looking forward to my next meal there."

"We were seated promptly and were given bread and butter immediately. Then we waited for our server for about ten minutes. He brought our wine, took our order, and was very pleasant. Maybe the restaurant was short handed that night. Our dinner was very good, and the portions ample."

"My friends and I had dinner here after seeing a play in Redwood City. Although I have lived in the Bay Area for over 25 years, I had never been to The Van's "On the Hill." I was really glad we decided to have dinner here. It was a wonderful experience. I love the ambiance and expanded views from this hill-top restaurant. The service was great, and the food exceeded our expectations. I am looking forward to returning with my family in the very near future."
