ASA - South - Los Gatos
Good meal, pricing in keeping with a Los Gatos restaurant except that it's within a Best Western hotel. The restaurant was very full on a Saturday and service was good. We were in a corner with 2-3 very loud diners next to us so our conversations were more challenging.
On par with Big Basin (sister restaurant), though with a modern setting. Great and consistent quality. Not a bad dish on the menu.
Fantastic food, awesome service and great wine list
This was our first time at this restaurant and we really enjoyed our experience! We had a reservation and we were seated right away. All members of the staff that we interacted with were very friendly, helpful, and informative. We had the broccoli soup, truffle fries, crab pasta, and steak with chimichurri.
We also had their dessert specials which were a pistachio rum ice cream and a berry crumble. Everything we had was delicious! We had a great experience and we will be back!
Great weekly dining spot with super friendly staff that will make you feel at home!
Great food, service and ambiance.....what more could you ask for?. This new restaurant is quickly catching on as a great place for a terrific meal. And has friendly bar as well. The staff is exceptional!!!
Food great. Wine choices delicious. Seating was too tight. I want to talk to me partner, not the neighboring table.
I liked the ambiance and the menu. I would recommend Asa and I will go back.
Overall, very good quality across the board. Our main courses arrived in a significantly staggered arrangement —which was unfortunate— but most everyone enjoyed their meals. Dinner was quite a bit more boisterous than lunch.
Asa’s is a great restaurant with impeccable service and delicious food. Every item on the menu is filled with flavors unmatched, and the ambiance and drinks make the dining experience one to remember.
Didn’t realize the restaurant was next to the Best Western. The ambiance and food was overall good. Will go back again for sure.
Nice little surprise . . . Took my gf for her birthday. We had the truffle fries (killer), the homemade spaghetti (spicy, but a more smokey spicy which added a nice nuance to the dish, the scallops (nice outer crust and good flavor). For dessert we had the chocolate bomb (as a b-day surprise - which our server (Ashton) quite smoothly had them remove the raspberry because she overheard me say it looked great except chocolate and raspberry are not a fave combination of mine, the apple galette (loved that it wasn't overly sweet)and the bread pudding. Overall and outstanding meal with outstanding service. Thanks ASA!!
I was looking forward to my lunch and it was ok. My friends had the PPP and I had the quiche. Her arrived still cold or frozen and the quiche outside was burnt.
Outstanding food and service...compliments to the chef...and to my date, she looked great!
New Years Eve! We were seated right away! We did have a reservation. Food great! Service really good,
This has become our favorite local restaurant! Even without reservations there is usually room at the bar. Splitting plates is no problem. Martinis with stuffed blue cheese olives are our favorite! We were greeted by owner and Manager Sara who was glad to see us, like we were old regulars though it was only our third time there! So glad this restaurant has taken over the space that used to be Grill 57-which we also loved.
This is not in the hustle and bustle of Los Gatos so
parking is no problem-next to the Los Gatos Motor Lodge. We will return!!!!
The place has a pleasing modern apperance. The staff is well trained and are there when you need them but don't hover. The food is very good but food and drink prices are a little high. The food selection is good and the wine and drink choices are very good.
We decided to try this after we heard some of the folks who were part of The Basin started this place. As a bonus they have my favorite Argentine steak! Will definitely return.
What an unexpected gem in Los Gatos! Hint #1-they use Riedel glassware for their cocktails. This is a restaurant that really cares about quality, including Heath dinnerware. #2-really delicious stuffed duck leg appetizer (special). #3-very thoughtful wine list, including wines by the glass--someone has done some serious work on choosing wines. #4-delicious mushroom pasta--the pasta was made fresh with a variety of mushrooms comprising a wonderfully complex entree. #5-wonderful mussels in a saffron broth--even better with the truffle fries. My pork ribs were good but a little uneven. It was great to see another restaurant in Los Gatos that cares about delivering delicious food in a gracious style. This may be our go-to neighborhood gem!
The food is segmented nicely, the waiter made an amazing wine recommendation for our table and the food was fabulous especially the paella...
The food was excellent! We had the scallops over risotto and duck. The bread pudding is incredible.
Amazing food! We ordered several dishes and appetizers to share and everything was so so good. The ambiance is nice and cozy, the bar is a place you would love to sit at and eat a meal. Can't say enough about this restaurant!
Really good food and service
Food was wonderful, wines by the glass and a very good canned beer!
Great addition to Los Gatos. The food was interesting, well prepared and paced in a timely manner. The service was excellent - thoughtful, prompt, helpful but not hovering.
The first two bottle of wine choices were out of stock then our appetizer was not delivered because the fryer was out other than that good but pricey
Wonderful evening with dear friends. Terrific service and delicious food. Greeted by the owner as well who made a special effort to make us feel welcome
This will become a regular haunt for us
There were four of us and three out of four meals were great. Unfortunately one of my friends was served raw duck (not rare, it was rubbery and red/blue)... so it got sent back and instead of them firing a new meal they just recooked what they had already given her. Not cool because the duck breast was sliced so when they recooked it, it seared all pieces all around.
Asa is an amazing restaurant! The only reason I gave it 4 stars for the food was because the grilled radicchio salad I needed a steak knife to cut it. This is what the waiter gave to me because I couldn’t cut it with a regular knife. My husband had the same issue eating his Radicchio salad but he struggled through it. Everything else was super tasty. I would definitely go back to Asa but will not order that salad again.
Fantastic great new spot. Sarah as lead bar tender is the best in the bay! Foos is amazing. Better than the Basin.
The food was really good. I had the radicchio salad nice rich flavors. The scallops were prepared the right way. For dessert we had chocolate melted cake it was delicious.
Cool place and good food, loved the pasta with mushrooms!
My group of 6 was seated just below the overhead speaker and the music was too loud. Asked the waiter to reduce volume. Also one of our appetizer orders was not delivered. I forgot all about it until I got home; and Noticed I was charged for it anyway.
The restaurant is packed tightly, there’s hardly room for waiters to move around.
The food was excellent, the drinks a little too pricey.
Menu and cocktails are basically what he had at The Basin. Lounge is very nice - great atmosphere there bit quite small.
I am happy ASA is in the neighborhood...lovely ambience and delicious food. The cauliflower soup was amazing. The server was tentative but not annoying (kinda what you get in NY...he knew when to show up say nothing and provide a service or ask the right question at the right time. Thank you
Great service. Food was also excellent. Limited menu for non-gourmets.
Great food and place!
This is a great restaurant. It’s a great addition to the Los Gatos area. Always a wonderful experience with fantastic food, service, wine and cocktails. And a beautiful location.
Great food and ambiance! We have been several times for dinner, lunch and brunch and all are fantastic. Asa brings a much needed brunch option to Los Gatos as well as a sophisticated business lunch venue without fighting traffic/parking. Always a great date night spot as well!
