This is a fun night out. The pool tables are in good shape. You can rent the tables by the hour. Some nights are cheaper than others. A few couples went out together and had a super time playing.
PROS: lots of tables
We had a fun night out at the Improv. The comedians were fairly funny, the prices okay. The quality of the show really depends on the comedian performing.
We rented the kids skis here. This saved us the hassle of having to get in line and waste time once we got to the ski slopes. They were very accommodating and the equipment was in good shape.
PROS: good selection
REI has the best selection of outdoor equipment and clothes. Their items are high quality. The staff all seem to be outdoor enthusiasts, so they are very helpful. My international friends all have to stop off here when in town.
PROS: great equipment
This place has an amazing list of pancakes and breakfast food. It is always busy, but the service is fast and friendly. I love their dutch apple pancake.
PROS: great breakfast
Tandoori Oven's has a great spin on Indian food. Their wraps are super. They have a trendy atmosphere in a great location. They are reasonably priced and the service is fast.
PROS: good food, nice location
I really like the sesame bread Fatima makes. The lamb and hand made noodles is also awesome. They have some very unusual Chinese (wieger) food. The kids love the fish ponds.
PROS: good food
I was very dissapointed in the Cheescake factory's version of a pot pie - a bowl of soup with a piece of puff pastry on top. The portions are always big here, but they lack quality.
PROS: big portions
CONS: not high quality
P.F. Changs is Chinese food in disguise. It is covered in sweet sauces, and deep fried in oils. I find it over priced. San Jose has so many great Chinese restaurants, but P.F. Changs is not one of them.
The restaurant is very nicely done up, and right in the mall.
PROS: great presentation
CONS: oily, sugary food
There are always lots of people waiting to eat here, but if you try to get any nutritional information on this place, the corporation does not publish it. I find their food mediocre, and the wait not worth it.
PROS: lots of choices
CONS: long waits, limited nutrional info available
