oh man woodside is turning into the lyon of the peninsula
I'll never understand this obsession with presentation. A three course meal for $54? Why would I pay big bucks just to feel hungry 15 minutes after I eat? I hope the portions are a little bigger than those pictures. It looks like the restaurant takes portion control to the extreme. I consider myself a foodie, but I'm not dumb enough to pay a lot for little.
Definitely not blown away by this restaurant. Price has already jumped $5 since it opened, due to a lot of great reviews, that seem somewhat unwarranted. I have found the food pretentious, with strange pairings, and two bite portions. Best to eat before (and after) you go.
My wife and I ate there shortly after it opened. We were not impressed, especially at the price. We haven't gone back.
Station 1 was the best meal we've had thus far in 2011.
I just don't understand the peninsula. A restaurant with awful service and mediocre food gets such high praise. Why are expectations so low.
We had a fabulous dining experience at Station One. Each mouthful seemed to merit savoring. The combination of flavors was terrific for every dish. Normally I wouldn't order a meal in this price range, but the quality and artistry of the food makes it very worth the price.
I agree with Steve. We had a delightful and tasty evening at Station 1.
Any new restaurant will have start up pains but those seem to be behind Station 1 and I would not hesitate to recommend it for an excellent and intimate dining experience.
Looks very nice. It is a tough business, I wish them all the luck
Never been there, menu doesn't do much for me, and prices are outrageous.
3 course meals are too much food, and if my husband and I want to share a meal, neither could deceide on same entree.
No curiosity at all, and no desire to eat at Villlage Pub either!
Love John Bentleys, so that is our special place!
portions are perfectly sized. get into a habit of eating less: you'll live longer. I am 185 lbs ripped and i go on 1000 kcal/day diet. oh, and exercise is overrated.
and lol at the FDA allowing the consumption of cheese mites and no young lait cru cheeses.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
