Hult's Ratings and Reviews

Great restaurant and great food available for all tastes along with professional service. Alex has done an incredible job to establish Hult's as one of the best restaurants in the Bay Area. He's a good person and always comes to each and every table to make sure that you are enjoying your dinner and having a good time.

The only issue we had was finding a parking space. The atmosphere is dressy casual and the restaurant is appropriately decorated. Service was outstanding.
The owner came by the table to see how everything was. A nice gesture and he did not visit too long. I am a fan of pumpkin ravioli and order it at many restaurants. Hult's was by far the best I have ever eaten. My friend had salmon and said it was one of the best meals she had ever eaten out. I am planning my next special occasion at Hult's as well as a casual lunch with friends.

My husband ad I have been to Hult's twice. The first time was about 2 years ago, and we had our kids with us. While I was impressed with the food quality, as well as the wine selection, I didn't feel the strong urge to return. My main complaint at the time was that at night, all I could see was the headlights of the passing cars on Hwy 9, due to the close proximity of the windows to the busy road. I found it very distracting, and a little unnerving to be honest.
Since then, they have built a lovely stone wall, so I was hopeful that I would like my second visit. Many of our friends prefer Hult's to some of our favorites, namely Lexington House. So I was willing to give it another shot.
All I can say about this last experience, is I was disappointed from the beginning to end. Firstly, I felt it was awkward to be greeted by a hostess on the corner outside of the building. She looked awkward standing there, and I felt awkward for her.
Then once in the restaurant, I tried to find positive things about the ambiance, but I just couldn't. Not charming, not particularly aesthetically pleasing. The wall did block the view of the traffic, but i still felt the location of a fine dining establishment should not be right smack in the middle of a busy, heavily trafficked road. I just never felt completely comfortable, or like I was free of all of the buzz from the corner. So that is my main complaint right there... the location. Other than that, the food was good, as well as the service. No real complaints about either of those. I think I will return and just sit at the bar next time. It actually looked inviting to me (not sure what that says about me exactly :)

Sitting outside was very comfortable with the wall, although it does sit on a busy street. Attention was very nice, the owner stopped by to chat. Food was very good and the atmosphere was great on a warm summer evening.

Hults is beautifully decorated, the service was warm ,efficient and friendly. The menu was seasonal, we loved the duck and cod entrees, and beet salad was terrific. there was a loud party so they were very kind to move us to a quieter spot. I will definitely go back.

This was our 2nd time to Hults for dinner. First was when it just opened and we vowed never to return. It was better, not great. Meatballs are over-rated. Scallops and burrata/tomato salad were good. Other salads were o.k. Service was o.k. not great. Don't think I would recommend Hults with other options in Los Gatos, but I wouldn't not recommend it. I WOULD recommend Hults for appetizers/happy hour. We went there recently for their happy hour, sat outdoors and it was very nice. Good appetizers, drinks. Service was o.k.

We dined at Hult's for my birthday and were impressed with the food, the service and quiet elegance of the restaurant. We received absolutely fabulous service from our server (and also head bartender), Matea, who was warm and attentive without hovering over our table. The beef Lindstrom is a particularly unique dish and totally delicious. Would definitely dine here again!

The restaurant was bright and open, clean and crisp. The wait staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and taken care of. We were seated quickly, fod came out in a perfect amount of time. The specials were well spoken of and our server suggested his favorites, that I ordered, and was not dis appointed at all. The food was creative and well done. The presentation was not pompous or over the top. The meal spoke for its self. Delicious and decadent. The owner came out to greet us and spent some time talking with me and my guests. Hult's was a very lovely experience and I do recommend this restaurant to the foody and to someone looking for a great meal.

This was my first visit to Hults and it could not have been a better experience. Waiter was extremely knowledgable and friendly. Cocktails were perfect and it was the best filet I've ever eaten, and I have had many experiences. Thank you very much.

Incredible food, service, and ambiance! We ate outdoors this time. Lovely! They knock it out of the ballpark every time. Loved the bacon wrapped dates, salad with feta cheese balls, unique raviolis, and chocolate sphere dessert. All items are "to die for". The table next to us were raving about the "meatballs". Our server was knowledgeable, efficient, and very pleasant. This is a "not to miss" restaurant! They obviously care about their diners. A fabulous dining experience! Kudos to Hult's!

We went for the Father's Day brunch. The food was good but portions were small. We were there mid afternoon and not very many others were in the restaurant. The waiter only showed up to take orders. Water was never refilled.
Value of food and service was not inline with prices charged.

We attended Father's Day brunch and didn't pay attention to the $50 fixed price 3 course menu. The price itself wasn't the issue. The quality of the food was marginal and the quantity as well. The server was FANTASTIC but the value was way out of sync with the price. It's in a great location and could be a huge hit in Los Gatos.
This is the second time we have visited ...
This is the second time we have visited Hult's. The first time was in March for our anniversary. We had such a wonderful time we wanted to visit again. We took a friend with us and again were not disappointed. Our server each time was Brandon. He took the time to detail different items on the menu and help us adhere to some dietary restrictions. He was very attentive to our every need. Our friend was equally impressed with the food and service. The wine was excellent as well. The owner also came to our table to make sure that everything was to our liking. Nice touch!
The only negative was the noise level was a bit high. We are hearing impaired and as such any room where there are many people can create a problem with hearing the table conversation. This is not a fault of the restaurant though, just a heads up for people with impaired hearing.
We will be back!

We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary and were treated to their FANTASTIC chocolate dessert. As a chocoholic I am very particular and this dessert met my hopes. yum! I also had a absolutely wonderful beet salad; the tuna poke was good but it isn't my favorite dish. I also love the pulled pork and the to-die-for sweet potato fries. My husband always has and enjoys the hamburger. We enjoy going to Hult's for lunch, especially either before or after the noon hour. The service is a bit slow at times, as the staff is small.

We sat inside for an early dinner on a Saturday night. As we dined the noise level got louder and louder till I could not hear the person next to me, and across the four top was lip reading. The food was tasty, the service fine, the wine delicious, and the desert decedent and lovely. Too bad it you want the tasting menu, but your seat mates do not, you are out of luck. the restaurant was way too noisy, and that will keep me from returning, other than with my husband to sit at the bar.
Good dining experience
We took our daughter to a "new" restaurant (to her) for her birthday. We all tried different cocktails and each of them was very good, as was the food. Love the meatballs and the sweet potato raviolis were very good but a small portion so no leftovers!
APPROACHING MANRESSA CLASS CUISINE, GREAT SERVICE
The food offerings can now be called Michelline class cuisine. The service is great. They listen carefully to customer feedback and are making continuous improvements to the customer experience. The food is now in the same class as Manresa and a lot more reasonably priced.
We got there at Noon so it was quiet. The lunch menu had several interesting items and I enjoyed the pulled pork sandwich. The sweet potato fries were okay but I should of asked for a salad. I like the Happy Hour at Hult's and recommend that to anyone.
Always excellent. Now has outside dining option
The food and drinks at Hult's have superbly balanced flavors while also using fresh locally sourced ingredients for similar prices to standard "nice" restaurants (which do not serve food that rises to this level).
On our last outing, we had our very well behaved dog with us, so were delighted that she could be with us on the newly constructed patio dining area (rather than waiting in the car).
Great but too noisy
Delicious food but the noisy group of ladies that came in really killed it for me. Too bad they had to seat the big loud group in the middle of the restaurant so we all had to experience their cackling, wine induced volume. I'd keep large parties to the side of the restaurant in the future so other guests aren't having to block out loud party conversations. Food was good.

We went for lunch. Service was excellent and very friendly. I had the ravioli--excellent. My husband had the salmon---also very tasty. We would definitely come back to try other things on the menu. The bar area was big and outside patio searing was nice. Looks like a fun happy hour place.
Bad service for what you're paying for. ...
Bad service for what you're paying for. (97 dollars, without tip, for two ppl.) Takes 2 hours to receive order and it was not busy. Went for a special occasion and left with a bad taste in my mouth as our server was inattentive and even ordered our busser to get our waters for us while we watched him walk to the bar to watch the game. I would not recommend.
