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.

Lovely brunch for Father's Day. Very nice special menu to mark the occasion! We also were able to sit outside which was quiet and lovely. We would definitely go back!

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.
Enjoyable lunch with out of town visitors.
We like the ambiance and service; enjoyed the salads, the burger and meat balls very much, the desert was great too.Only the mushroom risotto was too blend. Overall, a good experience.

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. (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.

Hult's was perfect for our date night. Food was great. All of the food was local and you could definitely taste the difference. We loved the wine list. Service was outstanding. We will be going back very soon.
First time here, we will definitely return!
I went here for lunch on a Saturday with my husband and my parents. It was our first time here. My husband ordered calamari and my parents and myself had three servings of Toast Skagen for appetizers. My husband had salmon, my dad had duck, my mom had risotto and I ordered Swedish Meatballs for main courses. After that we ordered a serving of gelato with melted chocolate, brownies and berries and a serving of raspberry sorbet for the table. All of the dishes were delicious!! We all recommend this restaurant!

Great food - starters delicious but too much in quantity for us Europeans such that was hard to eat all the main course and dessert. Perhaps we are just not used to eating so much!
Wonderful food with unique items, such as the trout on toast with trout roe! The baked alaska was also unique and delicious! Thank you!
We love coming here
This is the second time we've come to Hult's to celebrate a special occasion. The food is excellent -- the Swedish meatballs are my favorite! Great wine list. Love that the owner circulates to each table and introduces himself.

We had the best experience from Cliff our Waiter to Alexander coming to our Table to the trainee pouring the wine. The food was phenomenal. Not only will we do a write up on Yelp but will recommend to all of our friends. on Facebook and beyond

My family and I went to Hult's to celebrate my 30th birthday and my brother-in-laws graduation. The meal was perfect and the waiter was very attentive! So happy we decided to go there.

We booked a last minute table for six for early lunch: service was welcoming, patient- as we visited while making our order decisions and very efficient. Every meal was delicious and customize to support a few allergy prone guests. Anxious to return to try a few different entree's. Great environment. A gem nestled into a busy corner as you enter into downtown Los Gatos.

First time. Overall I think everyone in our party liked the food. It was hard to hear and it was an older crowd so it would be nice to sit an chat without yelling.
Food tasty; service needs work
I was here recently for brunch. The food was tasty, although the waiter got my order wrong. The service was not great My friend and I sat, in an almost empty restaurant, for at least ten minutes before our waiter approached us. He was bustling about our table helping another waiter arrange tables. At least take our drink order first! I had an issue I needed to discuss with what I believe was a manager/waiter, and he had a bit of an attitude. That same person had made a kind of snide comment to my friends and I the one time I was here for dinner. So while the ambiance is good and the food is actually quite good, the service needs work. If you don't make your guests feel welcome, appreciated, and taken care of, they will not be repeat diners.

This was our first visit and we were not disappointed. We even had the honor of being served by Alex Hult, himself. Of course, the service was outstanding. Every dish we had was artistically presented, perfect portions, and totally delectable. We had the Poki, Beat Salad, Duck, Surf and Turf, and the Chocolate Sphere. There is no question that we will return and also highly recommend to our friends. Thanks Alex, for a wonderful dining experience.
This was my second venture to Hult's in Los Gatos. I knew the food was good, but this time I ordered from the bar--a drink more popular in the '60s and '70s--a Brandy Alexander. When I took the first sip, I was very disappointed. When the waiter asked how I liked it, I told him. So he said he would take it back and make a new one himself. It was perfect!! I asked why the first attempt had been less sweet than what I was used to. He smiled and tactfully said that maybe the younger generation prefers stronger drinks. This is a restaurant that wants the diner to be happy with food, drinks, and waiters. I will return to Hult's!
A bit disappointing for Mother's Day
This was a return visit but a bit disappointing. The fixed menu allowed you to pick one option for each course but the food was bland and not at all what we had experienced before. Based on the price and previous experience we expected far more.

Great Mother's Day Brunch! Great restaurant for any occasion or/and dinner!
Mothers Day brunch
nice environment, though it did have the feel of pre-prepared food for the brunch; it was a set menu.
My husband and I went for a belated anniversary dinner. We had the Hult's experience. 5 courses. It was delicious andworth every penny. We were not rushed, but service was still excellent. I highly recommend the ahi poke. Fabulous!!! Next time I would get the wine paring to go with it. By the time we bought a bottle of wine and two glasses of dessert wine, it cost about the same. Will definitely go back.

Not impressed. Service was sub-par. While I'm sure he's a pleasant gentleman, our server did not know how to explain how the dishes were prepared. I heard the other server describe the different dishes quite eloquently. Bacon wrapped "Beef Lindstrom" needs an explanation. A restaurant of this caliber should have servers that are an extension of the chef. The wine selection was mediocre. The server brought the wrong wine, and still included it on the bill. Sorry but we won't be returning.
Enjoyed our first visit to Hult's which was to celebrate my wife's birthday. It's a good place - it doesn't feel too flashy, quite a down-to-earth feel, but the food and service were both very good. Some interesting Swedish influence to the menu - the owner is apparently a Swedish former NHL player. We had phyllo-wrapped prawns and bruscetta for our starters - the burata was exceptional. Then scallops and duck breast for mains. The scallops were cooked to perfection and the duck was cooked souvide-style which meant is was wonderfully tasty and tender. They have a decent wine list, almost entirely local. We finished with a cheese plate which was pretty massive - we didn't need dessert after that and rolled out of the restaurant in need of a walk up University Ave to let some of the food go down. Overall, I wouldn't say this place is absolutely amazing but it was very good and we will probably be back.
Devine food and perfect service! The Surf and Turf was Delish!
Great place for happy hour & appetizers
The husband & I were finally able to sneak away from the kids to have a date night and had a mixed experience. The swedish meatballs & salad were really good. The main entrees (filet mignon & beef lindstrom) & sides (risotto & mac/cheese) were good but we were not blown away. The service was good and the farm-to-table was noticeable in the meal so we definitely enjoyed ourselves. We felt that the restaurant would be great for after work happy hour drinks/apps but not so much for the nice date-night-sitter-worthy meal we had hoped for.
