Hult's Ratings and Reviews

We were disappointed by the brunch menu. The food was good but the menu does not have a lot of choices. The restaurant was very cold, we asked to reduce the AC but it did not make a difference. We were happy to leave as soon as we were done eating....We will not return for brunch.

Brunch was very tasty. The shrimp appetizer was quite good and paired well with the bleu, walnut apple salad. But the best thing in our meal was the special chocolate ball dessert. The chocolate was truly to die for. As a Hult's original it simply must be tried.

As always the food was great and it's just a nice place to go to and relax and enjoy a nice meal. My wife and I both had the Filet Mignon and it was incredible. And just a suggestion, the server should let you know what they have run out of when they seat you rather than when you have reviewed the menu and you place your order with him. My wife had decided on the Short Ribs only to be told that they were out of them. They also didn't have the Pork Belly Appertizer which we also found out when we were placing our order.

I was intrigued by this restaurant serving Californian cuisine with Swedish influence (I am Swedish). I didn't quite know what to expect, but I ended up enjoying a great Sunday brunch at Hult's. Their "Swedish influence" isn't as much a Swedish influence on the majority of their dishes, but more an addition of a couple of typically Swedish dishes to an otherwise very Californian menu (the Toast Skagen, Swedish pancakes and meatballs). In this regard, there is room for disappointment. HOWEVER, the food we ordered was delicious. The toast skagen was as good as anything I would get back in Sweden, and the eggs benedict and french toast were both very solid brunch items. Also, $16 bottomless mimosas and strong cappuccinos!

Terrible - we won't ever go back again. Our waiter was not trained very well. We sat forever to get water and coffee and almost a full hour to get our food. they only Served 5 out of the 6 meals. The 6th meal came when the rest of table were 1/2 finished with their meals. And it was nothing like the menu described. It's a shame because the owner is a great guy - very nice but the wait staff and kitchen are terrible.

This was our second visit to Hult's. (See our previous OpenTable review below) After dining there on our wedding anniversary last year, we were looking forward to a similar special experience for my birthday. This time, however, it was a much different environment, and both the service and food were a step down from that occasion.
One of the biggest reasons, I believe, was dining on a Saturday night. We couldn't get a table reservation until 8:30 PM, but the place was still very crowded and extremely loud. Our previous visit was a Thursday night, which made for a much more enjoyable experience. It was quiet enough for an intimate dinner then, and we received a personal visit from the owner. This time, we could barely conduct a conversation in a normal voice, and although our waiter was adequate.. nothing special.
Not that we expect freebies or anything, but my wife informed the restaurant it was my birthday, and there was no acknowledgment of that. The waiter's entree recommendations were also questionable, although that can be a matter of taste. Nevertheless, I've had much better short ribs at another Los Gatos restaurant, regardless of the claimed 6-hour slow cooking. We did enjoy the bacon-wrapped dates and calamari appetizers, however, and my wife's diver scallops were very good (and a large 4-scallop serving!).
We'll likely try Hult's again in the future, but not for any special occasions that happen to fall on a Saturday night.

Disappointing dining experience due to the extensive wait between first course and main course servings whose time lapse was approximately 30 minutes. Main course food was below expectations as compared to an earlier dining experience here several months ago. Management and wait staff acknowledged very slow service and made appropriate adjustments to the final cost of the bill. Also not an ambiance to conduct normal conversation; noise level was this time and also was on our previous visit way too loud. Based on the aforementioned factors, would not return to or recommend this restaurant to friends or acquqintances.... also conveyed this to management.

Hults has a wonderfully diverse menu and very attentive staff. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, but realized that the noise level was a bit high to have a modulated conversation between two people. The noise level would be the only damper on the evening. Maybe it is not so "live" on a non-weekend night. Will be happy to return to find out.

Hults has come a long way since opening in Los Gatos. The valet parking was definitely
a good first impression. We were four and we each enjoyed different selections. All were excellent. Alex visited every table, which is a class personal touch.

The owner always comes around to say HI. The service is very professional. The food not only tastes great but looks beautiful on the plate. It's a bit pricy but worth it for a special occasion they do have a great happy hour and 50% off wine bottles on Wednesdays.

I had booked reservations for our 15th anniversary several weeks ago. We were very excited to try Hult's as we had not been in the two years we've lived here. When we arrived we were told that only outdoor seating was available. It was chilly so that was not ok. They said that they had a large party of 70 they booked and unfortunately they did not have any indoor seating. While we were waiting for Manager they did give us a glass of wine. We spoke to the manager and he arranged to take a small 2 person table from a couple sitting at a 4 person table (2 small ones). So their dinner got interrupted because of this problem. Then our table was put near the window closest to the front door so we could see the hostess warming herself constantly at the outdoor heater out our window....distracting. My soup was cold. Only after we passed up dessert did the waiter come back to offer a comped dessert. Too little too late. Disappointing for sure.

I ordered Chanterelle risotto and there were no visible Chanterelles in it. Lots of button mushrooms....which wasn't stated as an ingredient on the menu and is a cheap sub for an expensive mushroom like Chanterelle. When you charge $24 for lunch for a risotto it should have Chanterelles. Thanks.

I've been twice in two weeks: once for a business lunch, and once for date night with my spousal unit. Both times, the food, the service, EVERYTHING was on point, seamless and memorable. EXCELLENT. Recommend in a heartbeat. I'm a food snob, and lots of restaurants disappoint me in small (and sometimes large) ways. This one gets an "A."

Sat outside and road noise and bright traffic light were disturbing. Cocktails were tasty. Phyllo shrimp and bacon wrapped dates are fantastic appetizers, but main course was not great. Short ribs were overdone and risotto was sticky/thick instead of creamy.

Been there twice. First time it was overall better. Menu has plenty choices for comfort food. Too many for my taste. Parking is a nightmare on weekends. Got fined, so be cautions where you park. Service was lenghty, seems our friendly server was quite busy and there was no one there to help him out.
Better choices in Cambell area.

The meal was perfect...it was absolutely perfect...we started with the squash soup and could not believe the flavor packed into what was a relatively healthy dish...then I had the scallops with the onion relish which was spot on...the scallops had a sear, but remained moist...my husband had the sweet potato ravioli which again could not possibly have been better...but my favorite thing of the night might have been the cauliflower with the capers-OMG-DELICIOUS...and if you like chocolate, you have to get the sphere....I was worried it was going to be too vanilla ice cream for me, but this was a chocolate lovers heaven. The meal was perfect!

This was our first experience at Hults. I had the Toast Skagen as an appetizer and the Elk Fillet as the main course. I love Elk, and the only thing I didn't like was that Elk was presented pre-sliced. But it was tender and flavorful.
Others in our party had the Bacon Wrapped "Beef Lindstrom" or the Lime Stuffed Pan Roasted Salmon, both of which were very good.
The only reason I've marked down the service is that there was a very long wait between the appetizer and the main dish. The owner came to our table and apologized for the delay and offered us a free glass of wine, which was appreciated.

We were seated promptly, even though we were early for our reservation. I must say that I was expecting a more lavish decor than what we observed. Our table was small, and the chairs were not particularly comfortable. The portion of the restaurant in which we were seated was too noisy, and we could clearly hear the conversations at nearby tables.
The food was excellent, albeit a little pricey, but not outlandishly so. Neither of us could finish the portions were were served.
Our waiter sort of vaporized after the entrees were served. We didn't see him for 15 or 20 minutes. The same happened after he brought the dessert menus, and we opted not to remain for that.
Our bill mistakenly added an extra glass of wine to the charge, but this was remedied quickly and without incident.

Three of us dined there. My friend asked for bread and was told they do not serve it. I ordered the salmon and it was good. However, my friend ordered the risotto and thought it was just okay. Left a lot of it. My other friend had the meat dish that is a specialty, I think. It basically was a thick ground beef 2 inch circle, topped with an egg yolk. She could not swallow it because of how dry it was. She left most of it behind. There were two tiny bits of mushroom and three tiny circles of potato. The pricing made this even more ridiculous. Will not return.

My wife and I took seven family and friends to dinner to celebrate birth of our new granddaughter. Looked for reservation last minute and Hult's was one of few places in the area that had space for us. Reviews looked go so we gave it a try. The seven of us past around multiple appetizers,entrees and desserts. The food overall in one word was " Wow, wow, Wow". This meal set the record for most " OMG my food was wonderful ". Six of us are from Philadelphia area ( a great restaurant town) and one from SF and we all agreed food was as good as any we had ever eaten and better than most. Our waiter Mike was great also. I'm still trying to figure out way the place was not very busy for a Saturday night but I give Hult's my strongest recommendation.

The preparation of the food was good as always. The shrimp appetizer and salmon entree were great and the duck was surprisingly tough (not necessarily the fault of the kitchen though) and when served somewhat "flat" champagne our waiter was quickly engaged with its replacement even though the bartender could not recall if it was opened the prior day.

We travel a lot and enjoyed European food. Food here is an excellent welcome change to regular cuisine served else where. Plan to go back with family and friends. Mike, our server, made wonderful suggestions and was attentive to create a memorable dining experience. Thank you!

We were impressed with everything about this restaurant-from the time that we arrived until the time we left, we were provided with excellent service, food, and special attention for our anniversary. Upon our arrival, the hostess seated us immediatly, and our waiter came with champagne, wishing us a Happy Anniversary. We tried the Swedish meatballs and the mushroom risotto followed by the grapefruit creme brulee. Each course was beautifully presented, and each course was superb. We were also greeted by the owner, who checked in on us about halfway through. In addition, the ambiance and decor was very nice. We would definitely recommend going here to all of our friends, either for a casual or special occasion.

Wonderful meal from start to finish. Hult's is not a cheap dinning experience, but the good news is that if you time your visit around Happy Hour you can make it more reasonable while expanding the range of courses that you get to enjoy. If you are going for a special occasion, you have to get the chocolate sphere dessert. Toast Skagen is always a winner here...

We had brunch at Hult's. Having been there before, we knew that they had a good brunch menu. We especially liked the French Toast, which had berries and a wonderful sauce. It came with maple syrup, but it was luscious without it. The service was good, as usual. If you like to sit outside, the patio is elegant and shielded from traffic and wind. There were decorative heaters out there, too, for cooler evenings.
