Our family went to Easter Brunch, last year, and it was fabulous! There was such an assortment of foods, great service, and beautiful ambiance. We are planning on going again this year. Thank you, Mariani, for having reasonable prices with great food!

The vegetable and cold buffet with cheeses and fruit excellent. Service was good under the conditions. Meat stations served hand carved beef and Ham. Fresh Salmon, green lip mussels, crab and smoked salmon with... More

On a recent visit to our son's house in the Santa Clara area----we decided based on our son's advice to visit Mariani's Restaurant for breakfast. As we entered around 10am we found that we had our choice of any table. We were staying right across the street at the Hotel Strtford and our son had eaten at Mariani's the day... More

I when there on a late Monday. They had a couple of groups but this did not affect the great service I had from Roth. They make a pretty good ice tea. I had the spaghetti with meat balls and meat sauce which was very tasty. I also had the warm bread with butter that I ate all of. I... More

Suspiciously old and run down, not comforting when eating! Service is not great and the buffet is not well-stocked.

Terrible. Everything arrived stone cold. Food was terrible with awful service to match. Should be closing this place before it falls down. Breakfast room was attractive so was expecting a nice old style breakfast to match.

Surprisingly good breakfast buffet. I was a guest at the attached Motel, which left something to be desired, but this little restaurant is pretty darned good.

The atmosphere needs updating. Felt like I was in an old restaurant with owners who did not care. Food came out undercooked and sauce was sour, sent back and asked to talk to chef. Was told he leaves at 2 pm every day and there was no lead chef when he leaves. Not impressed with workers attitude or food. In... More

I’ve visited Mariani’s restaurant often over the years as it’s been a Santa Clara icon since the 50’s. Mariani’s offers very good, well prepared food with smiling, friendly service at a fair price. The atmosphere is charming and homey. It’s normally a great escape from overly busy or sterile,modern restaurants that populate the valley. This review is devoted to the... More
