American | San Mateo, Peninsula

We were seated by the window where the cold wind was blowing. We were cold as well as the children. We requested if the window can be closed, was told it cannot be closed. Another large group came to occupy the table close to us. I saw the woman asked for the window to be closed as well, but was declined too. They turned the heater on behind me, which is very uncomfortable. Our server was very attentive. The manager was friendly but he also can't do anything about closing the window. More

We like the food there a lot. Always get the booth we want since we usually go around 6:00 pm. But service isn’t as good as it could be all the time. More

Monsoon Himalayan Cuisine

$$$$
Nepalese | Half Moon Bay, Peninsula

Really, really good. I had read the reviews. Being from the Bay Area, i was skeptical because there is a lot of good Indian (closest thing to Nepalese in my mind) food here. But Monsoon Himalayan did not disappoint. The lamb curry was excellent. Momas were great. We weren't that hungry so that's all we had but would not hesitate to go back if we are in HMB and are in the mood for Nepalese/Indian food. Staff were extremely friendly and decor is nice. More

Superbly executed tasting menu, very creative. Some of the dishes were wildly successful and others were creative but not quite the tasty mouth explosion you would expect. Looks-wise, every single dish was delightfully plated and presented. The wagu beef was offered and we glad we took it. Simply mouthwatering and delicious More
