The Van's Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Since 1947, this restaurant has maintained its reputation for serving American fare that is solid and hearty, all of which can be enjoyed while taking in breathtaking views that stretch from San Francisco to San Jose. Try continental favorites such as the stuffed mushrooms and jumbo prawn cocktail. Dinner is still very much steak and chops, but an ample pasta selection will satisfy lighter appetites. The wine list focuses on California.
