Our favorite Morgan Hill restaurant!
Great service and food! Our first time going there! Highly recommend it!!
Odeum never fails us! Excellent food, awesome atmosphere, it's Fabulous! :o)
Odeum has it all!! Lovely and inviting ambiance; superior wait staff (Chris was engaging, friendly, super knowledgable); a diverse menu that truly makes it difficult to choose from; full bar and extensive wine selection. From appetizers to dessert, everything was excellent and so delicious. 5 star, Odeum!!
Had a great time celebrating my Dad’s birthday! The Octopus was excellent!
Jerry our server was really great! His service was perfect!
It was great as always!
Food is good, but the wait staff is just not on the ball. They have an air of arrogance about them and sometimes I get the feeling they’d rather be anywhere than at Odeum. I’ve been in recently with my husband and the place was pretty empty and the waiters were huddled and talking. We would wait and wait until they ended their conversation to get help. This time it was a girls night out. Once water was delivered it took forever to get our drink order. I love this place, but when Sals not there the place is just not up to par.
Excellent service. Mary's Chicken has always been my favorite, but it wasn't as good as it usually is, the vegetables were soggy and didn't complement the potato puree.
Took my wife here for a date and had an amazing experience. Food was great and portions were just right. My wife has the “sun burn” cocktail. It was a little spicy but overall delicious and came with a surprise display that was really fun. We shared the flourless chocolate cake for dessert which was a delicious way to finish the meal without overfilling.
As a Morgan Hill resident, we haven't been back to Odeum for several years. The restaurant was surprisingly busy. The serice was good and our meals tasty. We never felt pushed or hurried in order to accommodate another diner(s). My only feedback is that it's a little pricey.
Sadly, our experience at Odeum was a complete disappointment. We'd been once before and it was average. Then, numerous friends said the food and service improved. Not. To preface, when booked through OpenTable, I made a specific request for a quiet table in the back. Next, we were celebrating a birthday, which was clearly indicated on rsvp. It was a Monday night, not Fri or the weekend.
The good: I started with potato leak soup and he had the special quail starter, both were outstanding. My crusted ahi tuna main was tender and delightful. My partner enjoyed his skirt steak, but said it tasted strongly of cardamom. We were eventually moved to a more bearable table by our waiter who was the only reason we did not walk out.
The not so good: although the waiter was trying very hard to accommodate and serve promptly, he was overbooked with guests to serve and the kitchen was slow. He was very professional and friendly, but it took him too long to stop by our table, serve the water and to take the orders. I do not blame him, I blame management.
The bad: the overall service was unacceptably slow, and in the case of the hostess and bar tender, rude and off-putting. The hostess was unaccommodating regarding our desired table request, not pleasant about it and really did not care. She ended up serving our main dish since the waiter was swamped and her attitude was poor. We waited at least 10 min for water; another 5-6 min to order and another 30 minutes or more to serve the first course. Our dining was 2 1/2 hrs and we did not dawdle over the food or have dessert or coffee. The one ? busboy passed our table even though our meals were clearly finished. Oh, and no recognition whatsoever of our birthday celebration.
The ugly: the extremely loud music they pipe down through speakers directly above patrons heads was unnecessary and eventually unbearable. This was on top of loud groups. Thus we requested a less noisy table which was not much better.
Enrique was very accommodating during our Xmas eve dinner. Food was superb!
There were four of us for Christmas Eve dinner. We all order different entrees each dish was elegantly presented and tasted as good as it looked. Jerry our server did a fantastic job, making it a very enjoyable evening.
We enjoyed our lunch time meal at Odeum. The food tasted very good and the service was attentive. However, two at our table had food allergies and asked the server if our choices were gluten free. He checked with the chef and assured us both that the items were without gluten. We both reacted to the food within the hour of eating lunch. It was very unfortunate.
True food allergies should not be taken lightly. When a chef okays an item on his menu, it should be safe to eat. When this information was reported to the management, I was told the chef would be informed but that was all. Disappointing.
Staff definitely makes sure you have a great experience. Everything from the "gift" from the chef (spicy flatbread was delicious), to their attention to silverware/glassware.
We enjoyed the Tomahawk steak, it was out of this world!
This restaurant is amazing. We had the beet salad, Greek salad, 5 dip plate , clam chowder, complimentary focaccia and a pizetta. Every dish was superb. We loved this place. Not only was the service fantastic, but the food was some of the best I've had. You must try the Mille feuille for dessert.
So loud. Hard floors and walls and we’re all jammed in there. On top of that we were stuck next to the kitchen separated by a curtain so not great ambience. Wine warm. Calamari got cold and hard before we finished because it was cold in room, it wasn’t great anyway. Salad was great. Banana bread pudding was great. Did I mention it was loud?
The staff at Odeum are always top notch! The food and craft cocktails are fantastic and the service is impeccable. I especially love the scallop appetizer and their cauliflower soup. Their pizza is the best in town!
Good food and atmosphere but always poor service. Won’t go back.
We enjoyed this place a lot, food was great, all recommended by our server Chris W , he did a great job.
Had the pork chop. Got sick from it as soon as I got home. Service was really good. Overrated place. Won't go back.
Four of us volunteers at the San Martin Animal Shelter had a get together luncheon at this favorite restaurant. As always, the appetizers and entrées were super tasty. The presentation is always amazing and the service could not be any better! We highly recommend this restaurant
This restaurant has it all - scrumptious food artistically presented, gracious, attentive service, and a warm, welcoming, hip ambiance. We drove 50 min to dine here with friends & we have made reservations to return - it is worth it. We had 4 different entries: and desserts and each dish was Delicious!!! The tables are spaced nicely so you can converse easily - some with more privacy and some with a view of the kitchen and all with white tablecloths. Suitable for special occasions, dates as well as just lunch with friends. It is a great value for the quality of food and level of service.
We have been coming to Odeum fo over 5 years and usually enjoy the restaurant. We booked a table for 2 Sunday night for 2.
The restaurant was pretty much empty when we arrived, only for the hostess to offer us a table in the corner of a side room, probably the worst table in the place!
We asked for a table in the main restaurant only to be told they were all booked.
We left absolutely disgusted.
We have had some hit and miss experiences with service lately so this time asked to sit with our favorite server. It was a busy night and large tables commended more importance than our 4some so we didn’t get the high level experience and interaction we hope for. Will wait for a bit before we do this again.
Odeum never disappoints. The food was very good. My friend and I both made selections for the salad menu which is varied and impressive. My steak salad was good. Steak cooked to perfection. my only complaint was that there were anchovies mixed in,; not on the menu description and not a favorite of mine. Nevertheless less, you can't find a lunch menu with the variety, and creativity like this anywhere.
The food was great. Loved the octopus especially—so tender. The entrance was congested and confusing upon arrival. Owner or manager was camped out at the bar with laptop and took up the entire space. Weird. Also, staff was numerous but it took over 20 minutes to place our order. I finally had to ask for the attention of the only really attentive server. He turned out to be great—an older gentlemen who was very professional and warm.
As usual we loved our experience and the food and service was wonderful. Our server was extremely professional and helpful. We would give him a 100 percent.
Intimate experience. Cozy and the drinks were inventive and tasty. A true MH gem!
The service was a little slow as our waiter spent more time talking to a blond at the bar. This time our steaks were a little burnt on the outside and well done when we asked for medium rare. Overall we will be back, it is usually excellent all the way around.
So disappointing. Reser
The ‘ BEST’ ... right from the start, James and Jerry our server took care of business.! We were celebrating two birthdays and they both made sure it was a very special evening. Thank you
Great birthday brunch- excellent service from Josh. Thank you!
We sat for about 15 mins before our server came and greeted himself. Everything seemed a bit chaotic and it was easy to see that they were under staffed. Overall the experience was below average for the prices and ambience they’re shooting for at this place.
Bad service, to high price, not recommended. It was the worst my BD party!
Odeum is one of my favorite restaurants. Josh was our server, and was great. Made good suggestions, Was friendly, attentive enough without being too in our way. Really enjoyed the stuffed mushroom and Octopus appetizers. Good main dish as well. Seemed a bit light on shrimp quantity in the shrimp pesto pasta. Great night. If you sit outside be aware that this is next to active train tracks. You may get a couple trains come by.
Took over 20 minutes to get drinks. Wife ordered petite new york, but was charged $49 for the filet.
Had a nice dinner with another couple, our friends. The servers were very polite ((professional) and checked in frequently. We didn’t get anxious waiting for anything 😁.
