Grill 57 is a newer restaurant in Los Gatos which offers good food,
easy parking, reasonable prices, and a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. Twice this last year I’ve had the opportunity to dine there, and both times the food and service were excellent.
Offerings at Grill 57
The Grill 57 menu is mostly American food but also diverse – something for everyone, with a variety of salads, old favorites (pasta, burgers, pizza, grilled salmon, steak, soups, and sandwiches of all kinds) and appetizers (Buffalo wings, crab cakes, soup). There are vegetarian options as well.
Do you have special dietary restrictions? This restaurant includes the manager and chef’s contact info on the menu page, so you can reach out and verify before you sit down to eat. Talk about customer service oriented!
Prices are not bad by Los Gatos standards. If you want just a cup of soup, it will cost $4, or $8 for a bowl. Pizza is about $12, sandwiches around $14 – $16. Salads range from $10 to $22. If you want the Steel Roasted Mary’s Chicken or the Grilled King Salmon, it will run $25 as of today, in December 2018.
The bar is nice looking and open to the restaurant. I was there at lunch and did not try out anything from there, but the website states that it provides a “full bar with traditional cocktails, boutique wines, local draft beers”.
Last summer, as I was showing nearby condos to some clients, I noticed a banner on the Grill 57 building advertising live music. As of this writing, I don’t see anything coming up on their events page, but check back – that is a second reason to visit.
Where is Grill 57?
Located just off Highway 17 at the intersection of Los Gatos-Saratoga Road and Alberto Way, Grill 57 is closer to many east Los Gatos neighborhoods than restaurants in nearby downtown. And since there’s plenty of parking, you won’t need to factor in much time for hunting for a place to stash your car – it is easy to get in and out.
I should add that Grill 57 is adjacent to the Best Western Inn of Los Gatos. While I’ve not stayed there myself, relatives of mine have, and it received a good rating from them. My cousins tell me that the restaurant provided the breakfast, and it was wonderful.
