I live in pleasanton, but i made the trip to San Ramon with my girlfriend based on the good reviews here and to try something new. I was pleasantly surprised when i arrived, as this is truly an upscale restaurant. The booths and decor were nice, and the staff was extremely attentive.
As said with a previous review, the wait staff will actually offer to place the food on your plate for you. We loved the crab and cheese cream fried wontons and the crispy chicken was good too. The prices weren't actually that high with most of the dishes around $10-11 (which isn't that bad for a sit-down Chinese Restaurant). Although we didn't sample any, judging by the menu, the restaurant had an extensive wine selection as well.
The ambience was nice, and the place is decorated with huge mirrors and high ceilings. Pretty romantic. Great place to bring a date for a nice, cozy dinner. Overall, the food was good, but it was not so set apart from other less extravagent Chinese Restaurants that i would give it 5 stars. I do think i would come back again though.
at very high prices for Chinese cuisine. We like the ambiance - nice, refined and relatively quiet. Service is good but the wait staff will deliver the food and actually place it on your plate for you. That is really strange for Chinese dining. We are so used to family style dining and everyone helping ourselves that this feels strange. Again, the food is very good but the prices are too high making this a lesser value than we like. Go to their original location in Lafayette. The prices are much lower but the food remains at a high level - this makes it a much better value.
This is probably the highest scale Chinese Restaraunt in the Bay. I've been going to Uncle Yu's for years including its location in Lafayette. It offers a one of a kind cool atmosphere. Upscale atmosphere nice enough for taking that special someone, a top notch wine menu and bar, and yet at affordable prices. Service has always been top notch, and the Food -It is always fresh and delicious.
