Came here for a birthday party, where it is a lovely Asian Fusion restuarant in downtown SJ. The food was a great mix of sweet, spicy, and exotic. Presentation was beautiful, which also gave the food a more "modern" look. Decor is "romantic" dark, with little lighting. It's a great place to take a date. There is full bar next to the dining commons area, for those who are just out for a drink. Recommended.

Like Elephant Bar but higher class people, decor and prices. Food is pretty good, too. If you are driving, park at the Sutter Stockton garage.

The name is not that suggestive, since it takes a while for you to get that this is a restaurant and not a trading company.
The place is really beautiful and cozy.
I was there for happy hour with friends and had beers and appetizers - and everything was great. Will definitely go there again to try the food.

I like E&O in downtown San Jose quite a bit. When my out of town friends were visiting the city, I suggested their alternate location in San Francisco.
These two locations have different menus with only a few dishes in common. The location is excellent. It sits at the heart of union square surrounded by all the pretty boutiques and stores. This restaurant is bigger than the SJ counterpart with a more vibrant ambiance. The decor is still pretty much the same East meets West style.
The restaurant was very busy on a Sat night and the service was slightly lacking. Our server didn't spend too much time to explain the menu. The portions of the entrees varies quite a bit and the dishes are most suited to be shared family style. Order a few meat/seafood dishes to go with rice or noodle and you are good to go. Unfortunately that wasn't explained to us when we ordered.
The food is decent. The Siu Black Cod was very delicious. Duck Confit was alright. I found the sauce a little overwhelming. Perhaps it was best to pair with rice. Tried the Pork Tenderloin my friend ordered and it was very good as well. The Shiitake Mushroom Dumplings was just average. The foie gras miso sauce was tasty but there were nothing special about the dumplings. Skin was too thick and the filling weren't that tasty. They were definitely overpriced for the quality.
Dessert was excellent. The Coconut Black Sesame Panna Cotta was rich and delicate. Not sure if I like it served in a jar though. It was cute but a bit hard to eat.
Overall a good restaurant although SJ location is still better. Think of it as a step up from Straits. Certainly not the best value for your bucks but a cool place to hang out with friends.
