Sidecar Modern Tavern
Excellent experience start to finish. The service was attentive and relaxed. Each of the dishes we had was expertly prepared. We had the avocado starter, charcuterie, and scallops. All delicious.
Great food in a warm neighborhood establishment
My wife and I really enjoyed dinner hear. It was a fun and energetic atmosphere, the food was great, and the whole staff was friendly and interactive. The lamb sliders and Shishito peppers were especially good! The two owners came by to see how our meal was going, and you could feel their enthusiasm for their new place, which as a small business owner I can really appreciate. Busy place, so make reservations a week in advance. We'll be back!
Delicious plates to share. Lamb sliders were the highlight!!
Very cool vibe. Enjoyed our date.
I’ve been here 3 times now and the food, drinks, and service were outstanding with each visit. And the ambience lends itself well to different occasions. Fun and hip for group outings. Modern and stylish for date night. Comfortable and relaxed for good times, in general.
Good food. Good drinks. Excellent Service. A nice spot for dinner and drink in the middle of the week.
great cocktail choices! A nice spot to spend with some friends or family!
Drinks tasted watered down, food was just OK. Best dish was the banana dessert.
Adam and Josh (owners) are the consummate hosts. The restaurant/bar has a SOMA vibe, which Los Gatos was lacking. The food is superb and the cocktails are outstanding, which isn't a surprise, given their experience at Absinthe, Scratch and the Four Seasons. Highly recommended - do your part and support local businesses!
great service and unique and wonderful food options owners came by twice to check on us as well drinks are also off the charts
Fun, hip atmosphere, great specialty drinks. Owners are super nice. We had wings (too salty) and fries ( way way too salty!), and the grilled cheese (delicious!). Fun pub for friends. A great new addition to our town.
Great food, service and cocktails!
A beautiful redo of the former i Gatti restaurant. Very inviting, cozy. Small patio in front. The service was excellent- from the hostess to our server. And the owner came over to welcome us and chitchat. Drinks were great, esp. the gin and house-made tonic. We shared 3 small plates. Spiced fries, chicken wings, and avocado with egg ( sounds weird, but was delicious). All good, and our custom requests were accommodated. Going back tonight!
Great service. Yummy food options and drinks!
The reviews for this place had been really good so we thought we would try it. The menu is small and limited and that is fine, kind of a Tapas menu. The items just did not wow me, I expected more based on the raves. I suspect they change the menu frequently and may try it again.
Great experience. Can’t wait to return!
Came in for cocktails, (made a reservation this time.) Your take on a Manhattan and shared a fried pig's ear. Hmmmmm, I'll be back.
Sidecar is great for cocktails and has a nice atmosphere but food is terrible. I would go back again for a drink, but not food.
Every thing was at least ‘Good’. Noise wise it ebbed and flowed. Occasionally a little too loud but mostly acceptable.
This was a very fun place with incredible drinks and really good food. Try the lamb sliders and the cocktail named 17!
Great cocktails and small plates. Lots of vegetarian options as well. Nice decor. Good music (not loud).
Finally ... a fun place to hang out in Los Gatos. It brings a great blend of fun and sophistication without the stuffiness that plagues most of Los Gatos. Signs of life in LG!
Double date night to celebrate my friend, Kalina and me. Late celebratory dinner for the 4.0 GPAs we earned last semester. The evening was wonderful. The restaurant is a cozy, chic, and hip atmosphere. Rebecca, our server is wonderful. She’s the cute one. Staff service is excellent. They were completely full and so busy when we came in. We tried the croquettes, fries, Bahn Mi salad and cucumber salad to start, then moved on to the next round. Luckily for me, Kalina’s fiancé loves seafood so he and I were able to order to Kona Kampachi with Yuzu. Delicious! The chicken wing are some the best I’ve ever had. I love the Sidecar spice, and that blue cheese dip on my side... I could just eat that in ramekin. Finished off with the Game Hen and Steak and Bone Marrow. By far my favorite dish on the menu. The flavors are inviting, tasty, and I love all the eclectic flavors incorporated with the chef’s innovative menu.
The owners are who really bring keeps the integrity and brings this restaurant full circle. It’s certainly why I enjoy it here so much. Josh Allen and Adam Chick and fantastic owners. They are both warm, inviting, caring, funny, and knowledgeable. You can see how much care they put into their work and interactions with their guests.
Two words: Wings, Fries! Trout and cucumber salad were also fantastic. The salad was very unique. Drinks were top notch. I live nearby and this promises to be one of my regular go-to places. Keep up the great work, Sidecar!
Good restaurant for friends get together. Decent but not that fabulous.
They've only been open for a few months so, I think they are still working out the kinks. The two young hostesses had difficulty managing their table turn over (for example: our table was not available when we arrived for our reservation and they didn't have an experienced response or plan). Upon seating, we weren't greeted by our server for quite some time and it was a full 30 minutes from arrival to drink in hand and one inadvertently arrived in a cracked glass after that wait?!? Our water glasses were constantly empty and it took time for them to collect our bill even after our table was cleared. So first impressions weren't great. However, the food was really good, the specialty drinks were very delicious and better than we expected. So, we'll eventually go back but, the restaurant is pretty compact, so we might pick a less crowded night and wait for the service training to increase abit more.
What a cozy local neighborhood tavern with fantastic shareable plates -prepared in such a fun way. This restaurant is a place to bring friends or a date and experience cocktails and food in a chic, warm, and sexy environment.
Loved the relaxed yet upbeat vibe of this place. The service and food was all great. Nothing pretentious, just straight forward and delicious. Two of us split 6 small plates and left feeling pleasantly full, not heavy and gross. Great flow of service and well thought out menu, kudos to the chef.
Fun addition to LG downtown.
The food was unique and incredibly good. Loved the concept of small and sharable dishes. Outstanding gin and tonic made from restaurant’s own recipe. Tables are close but add to atmosphere of being able to talk with new people.
Took about an hour to get our food
Sidecar is everything we hoped it would be - fun atmosphere with friendly staff, great drinks, cool vibe and interesting food. First the vibe. The decor is reminiscent of a speakeasy with comfortable, high back chairs and sofas in a chic lounge area. The dining area is tight but comfortable. The staff is very helpful and seem genuinely interested in making sure the whole experience, from the moment you enter to the time you leave is a pleasant one. The drinks, in addition to being very creative and fun, were balanced and delicious. Finally, the food: Some of the menu items are a work in progress. The pig ears need some refinement, and the root vegetables were good, but not great. The lamb burgers were so delicate, tender and flavorful, we could have eaten three orders of that. But then we would have missed the incredible NY strip steak and bone marrow. Arguably the best dish on the menu and one of the best steaks I’ve had. Dessert was good (banana fritters) but needed some coconut ice cream. Overall, a very welcome and fun new restaurant which we will be at regularly!
Great service and food. Loud but fun. Highly recommended.
Disappointing format. Small plates are just too small and over priced and uninspiring for the price. Wine prices are extortionate. Really - listing the $35 PER GLASS at the top of the menu is just cynical. The bottle prices are also just as crazy. So many better options than this
The Sidecar experience was over the top. Nothing like it in Los Gatos... Service was fun and engaging and the food was just as fun and delicious.
Get there early or get a reservation or you won’t get in.
