Food is very good try the pork chop. Also the scallop small plate is very good and the right size. Very noisy and can seem close especially when the patio is booming. Service can be mixed. Somewhat pricey and you may resent the 3% service...More

I had the brussel sprouts, as well as the scallops. The Brussels were good, but a tad on the sweet side. Loved the scallops but could do without the pate type portion that sat in the middle. It was visually unappetizing and didn't add to...More

For a place that won 'best French Restauran", the BSB wasn't very French. The atmosphere was more like an upscale sports bar without TVs. Bar service was good and their selection is very good. Our entree's were served cold and the French Fries were so...More

A collective effort brought together by the man behind Cascal in Mountain View and formerly of Le Mouton Noir, Birk’s, and Cin-Cin. In partnership with the three minds behind The Lexington House in Los Gatos to bring San Jose, and the South Bay, something of a “black sheep” out of the herd…
