Recommendations for dad’s birthday dinner in the South Bay?
Kingfish. Not fancy at all, but I've never been with anyone who didn't like it. Also in San Mateo, Central Park Bistro -- a little more "prepared" menu as opposed to "a nice piece of steak or fish", also a little more elegant, but not necessarily better.
