Palo Alto dinner
Two places have been suggested Kaygetsu in Sharon Heights and 3 Seasons in Palo Alto. Anyone have a take on either?
in terms of quality, kaygetsu is far superior, especially the kaiseki menu. however, 3 seasons (nouveau vietnamese) is more conveniently situated, cheaper and has more of an atmosphere. it depends on what you want. if it's a small, quiet group who's about the food, kaygetsu it is. 3 seasons is more about a group or the ambiance. kaygetsu would be totally loss on some of my friends.
do you definitely want asian food?
Unless $$ is a concern, why go to 3 Seasons when you have Tamarine in the same downtown?
I had an OK meal but bad service at 3 Seasons about a year ago. I agree with above, Tamarine is much better, but it's usually difficult to get a reservation.
Kaygetsu is great but kaiseki is not what everyone is ready for. And I've heard complaints about quantity in regard to the cost.
