Flea Street has been a Silicon Valley favorite since 1980. The atmosphere is contemporary, sophisticated and inviting. The menu is a celebration of the rich Northern California food community: seafood is caught in the nearby Pacific, produce is carefully sourced from local farms, meat is grass-fed or pasture-raised to name just a few. Flea Street offers innovative yet approachable cuisine that showcases the very best of the season. Our bar specializes in martinis and unique cocktails using small batch liquors. A wine list features the best of California’s extraordinary vineyards with an emphasis on the local appellation--the Santa Cruz Mountains.

    I have had much better fried chicken at Foreign Cinema in SF and Johnston's Saltbox in San Carlos, and even at Chick-fill-a. The chicken was not at all overcooked, but the batter lacked somehow. The potatoes were delicious, but $15 for a small dish of such an inexpensive food felt excessive. My understanding was that the potatoes would be substituted for the egg I didn't want. I thought you should have more wine and at least a one or two at less than $20 a glass. The sucotash was very tasty. I think the quality of the food was great. Overall, I was only comfortable with a "good" rating. I wish I could have said more positive things, because I know a review like my can be less than great to receive. I lived for 40 years in SF and realize my standards are very high after tasting so so many excellent meals at so many restaurants in that town.

    Good neighborhoody feel with attentive service. Food is solid with nice touches and great attention to high quality vegetables simply prepared. Value for the money unfortunately is pretty abysmal. Items are overpriced ($20-35 apps, $35-55 entrees), at that price they should be more sophisticated or (ideally) more filling. The tiny wine list is quite well thought out but it has no value options and the highest markups I've ever seen in the Bay Area, much higher than you'll find even at a 3-star spot with 100+ bottle cellar. Overall nice spot but tailored to Atherton-sized wallets. Would recommend if price doesn't matter, stay away if you want bang-for-your-buck on a special occasion

    We wanted to go out to a restaurant that we hadn't been to recently so I looked online at the current menu and it looked amazing. So I made reservations and the food was amazing. The Lavender Lemon Drop was also amazing. Can't wait to return.

    As always, Flea Street never disappoints. I had dinner there last week after too many months away. The servers and staff were friendly and attentive. I love the remodel but still chose to sit outdoors and enjoy the summer evening. Every dish arrived like a piece of art. But most important to me, especially in these times, is knowing that when I eat at Flea Street, every farmer and supplier, and member of staff who played a role in my meal was treated with the respect and fair treatment that Jesse Cool has build her reputation on for over 4 decades. I don't know how many restaurants have earned trust the way Flea Street has.

    I hadn't been to Flea Street in a long time (since before the pandemic) but the food was as wonderful &amp; creative as ever. Service was a bit slow but they were busy so I understand. Alcohol (cocktails and wine) seemed overly expensive but everything else was worth the cost.

    Fun to come back to the revamped Flea St. Upscale ingredients and prep with down home, warm service. Cosmopolitan atmosphere indoors, weekend in the country outdoors. The current art show is fascinating! I loved the morel mushroom risotto and admit I ate all the chocolate soufflé myself. Who is this restaurant for? Regulars who have for decades appreciated the organic, locally grown food, and for new people used to SF and NYC restaurants that care about sourcing ingredients and seeing what young, talented chefs can create.

    Fresh food was excellent and well-presented. Black fish was perfected cooked. Vegetables in the broth were young and tender. Dinner #2 was the short ribs well cooked beef. Nice to have an appetizer treat with the incredible biscuits. Mini cream puffs with check were also excellent. Flea Street is perfect for special occasions when we eat out.

    Owner Jessie Cool and Chef/GM Bryan Thuerk have created a delicious menu representative of our local farms and seasonal California cuisine. The ingredients are thoughtfully paired, exceptionally prepared, and artfully presented. Beverage menu has something for everyone, and like the culinary menu, you can’t go wrong, pair with your food with ease and sure satisfaction. All of the staff are attentive, personable, and good old fashioned hard working humble restaurant service professionals. See you next week Flea Street team!

    LOVE it mostly...LOVE the whole idea but lacking is a host who monitors things 'overall'...checks in with tables, says hello and relays issues/requests as needed to the waiter/busser. This would make us diners feel more 'looked after' and in turn would help justify the hefty price tag. We've been here several times and always notice the lack of someone monitoring the dining room. As a result the service can feel a little 'slapdash'. OVERALL: a wonderful concept in this wonderful part of the world !

    Flea Street is always a fabulous dining experience. From the beautiful, tasty cocktails prepared by longtime bartender, Eloy, to the generous taste of the season/biscuits/bread plate, gorgeous entrees (we were a party of four and ended up sharing bc everyone was talking about how good their dish was!) to desserts. Chef Bryan Theurk and company provide consistent, delicious food and service.

    We were very excited to come &amp; dine. The food was so $$$$ and even though the fried chicken was $70 for 2, I ordered it for myself with take home. The chicken was nothing but hard crispy fried skin or whatever???? There was no chicken meat at all hardly. The martini was $24 OUCH! My husband’s Sole was just so so &amp; the 3 cheese tortellini was way too cheesy. I will say service was great, but that too we had to pay extra for because of some additional “living cost” add on. We came &amp; left to never return again, especially for the undesirable fried chicken. No thanks

    This place has gone downhill over the years. Super expensive tiny tiny amount of food that’s the size of small tiny appetizer. What’s worse is they automatically added 20% tip!!! (only 4 of us, normally it’s 18% for parties of 8 or more) plus additional health care fee. I believe customers should have a choice to give tips. Won’t be going there anytime soon!!!

    We had dinner outside in the "parklet" which can be a bit noisy from traffic, but not too bad. The service and dinner were both outstanding. Flea Street is somewhat pricey, but well worth it.

    It is always worth the effort to spend an evening at Flea St, but the current limitations on the dining experience are still a distraction, and an overall detractor. I know it's not the fault of the kitchen and service staff that we still have to be patient with Covid realities - maybe I was expecting more than they could rationally deliver.

    It is always a pleasure to eat here. Jesse Cool has prioritized quality and care and it shows in every aspect of the dining experience. We are especially heartened by and supportive of the tipping policy where the entire staff shares equally in the 20% gratuity that is added to all checks. Good for everybody.

    Flea Street has always been one of our all time Bay Area favorites. But our recent visit left us totally floored over how far things have slipped. So sad. For openers, their unique mask policy requiring diners to mask up whenever approached by a server is socially awkward. It breaks the rhythm of conversation when everyone at the table scrambles for their mask every time a server pops up unexpectedly. Seems a little overkill for outside dining. The servers were polite and well-intended but very inexperienced and untrained to support a fine dining experience. Only a minute after the opening cocktails arrived they started bringing the openers.....all of them, simultaneously. I ordered a salad to start, followed by the crab cake and then the entree but received the crab cake and salad together all before my cocktail was even half finished. Chain restaurant service was never part of the Flea Street experience. The food was mediocre and not consistent with the old Flea Street experience. The presentation of the crab cake was ruined when they brought it out the second time. Probably left it under the lamps or in the oven to maintain temperature but the final product suffered as a result. My fish entree was sadly over cooked, as well. I know these are trying times and I want to give them the benefit of the doubt but there was a lot that went wrong that evening. The old Flea Street is very much missed.
