Feeding an appetite for innovation

You can’t plan the future on an empty stomach. At Silicon Valley’s boutique hotel of choice, we’re as committed to complementing your business meeting or other event with extraordinary food as we are to highlighting a stay with outstanding amenities. We strive to reflect the taste of diners who seek something decidedly different. A tempting array of Prime appetizer, break and full-meal menus is focused on fresh, with ingredients sourced from nearby ranches and farms. Our Michelin Star trained chef brings the seasonal best to an ever-changing selection.

We shine at small gatherings

A passion for perfection drives us to cater memorable moments for groups of fewer than one-hundred. We’re dedicated to making your intimate reception, business meeting or private dinner something truly special. Two boutique meeting spaces offer 1,000 square feet complemented by a stunning outdoor poolside deck where an 18-foot firewall, tempest-torches and lush landscaping combine with fabulous food to deliver the definitive California experience.

Locally sourced, lovingly prepared.

We nurture close relationships with local food providers and services. Our native Californian Chef supports their efforts to encourage and ensure sustainable sources for a wide variety of fine foods. We bring to the table the best California has to offer, ethically grown and raised here in our own backyard, where fare is fair. Enjoy delicious food prepared to perfection by our inspired culinary team. We care as much about our presentation as you do about your event.
