The restaurant is on a corner of down town Palo Alto not far from the Stanford campus and has a very nice ambiance. The decor is modern and the windows on the side are covered with draperies, while the front of the restaurant can be opened up to merge the inside seating with the outside seating. We went for dinner,... 更多
On a recent trip to Palo Alto, I went out with some colleagues looking for a nice but quick meal on the min street. We stumbled on this restaurant around 8pm. They managed to find us a table for 8 and absolutely turned the charm on. After a selection of tapas, we chose separate mains, with all meals outstanding. I'd... 更多
Love the decor of this place, makes me feel cooler just walking in. The lighting and interior design feel like one of the boroughs in NYC - I like that vibe. Ordered a variety of tapas, the Kobe Beef Sliders were great, Brussels Sprouts yummy, the guac and chips are sublime. Most likely b/c the chips are taro root and... 更多
Start with the ceviche, then move to any of the meat items, and end with a chocolate dessert. Wonderful subdued party atmosphere in nicely modern rooms and wrap around bar.

Met here for drinks and dinner. Joya offers a full bar, extensive wine menu and an interesting selection of tapas and entrees. Seating is available on the sidewalk or inside and the street setting in downtown Palo Alto is filled with trees. We tried a number of different tapas, from ahi ceviche to kobe sliders. A bit pricey, but not... 更多
One of those restaurants which, once you've left, leaves no good memory about the food, the wine, the general atmosphere. Noise level rather high since the tables are close to one another. We wanted the paella (for 2), we were then told us it would take 45 minutes. That's the kind of information that should be on the menu, right... 更多
My friend and I decided to stop here for lunch on a whim. I was happily surprised with my meal. I had a hummus spread with vegetables, not like anything I've had before. Everything was fresh tasting and very healthy.
Ate here on a Monday night in March with a business colleague. Nice place. Decor is clean contemporary modern in darker wood colors. Bartender was friendly and WOW they give big pours for reasonable prices. No reservations but no problem on a Monday night. Got seated quickly. Waiter was reasonably attentive. Menu is primarily tapas, with some entrees, but we... 更多
