Dino's Grill

Reviewed By Shesaidso - Newark, California

The place was hot, the food was horrible and the prices were high considering the amount of food you get. I ordered the spaghetti and meatballs ( horrible! had no taste what so ever and was watery). It came with a bun split with butter and burnt around the edges. Lesson learned!

Simply thai

Reviewed By 861audreyk - Oregon

Stumbled on this little establishment with a friend. It was clean and pleasantly decorated. The staff was friendly and attentive. The food was delicious and served piping hot. The yellow curry with potato was exquisite. The other dishes were great as well, but I can't remember what I had; the curry was that memorable. Solid restaurant. I'd return very soon if I was nearby.

Fremont Market Broiler

Reviewed By HeyTeacher31 - Fremont, California

Just stopped for a late lunch with my son while out shopping. We wanted a relaxing meal and I wanted something healthy and he wanted plenty of food, but some type of fish or seafood. This is place met our requirements perfectly. And the bread was a bonus.....if maybe not so good for the waistline!

Our food was delicious. I had salmon and soup. He had soup, salad, and a plate of multiple types of seafood and rice. The service was a bit slow considering they were pretty empty, but our service and the server were great. I'm sure we will return again.

Massimo's

Reviewed By mini - Fremont, California

We dined at Massimo's for a superb Christmas holiday meal. We loved our dinner and service was superb too. The place was nicely decorated for Christmas.

We enjoyed cocktails and wine. They have good complementary bread.

For dinner, my husband started with flavorful clam chowder. He had salmon for dinner. Superb.

I had their wonderful Petrale sole.

For dessert we shared their dessert for the day - key lime pie. Its one of the best we've had.

BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse

Reviewed By mini - Fremont, California

We went to dinner at BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse on a Sunday. Local sports were mostly playing on the TVS.

We shared their Root Beer Glazed Ribs.

We also ordered their small bites trio. We selected ginger creamed corn, creamy couscous mac and cheese, and cauliflower.

Food was tasty.

Service was good.

Ray's Crab Shack

Reviewed By cobalt222 - Arkansas

Saw that Rays had good ratings so I gave it a try. I was surprised that they had a very limited menu and my shrimp and potatoes came to my table in a plastic bag and no utensils. I get this when you eat whole crab but not peel and eat shrimp. It came in a sloppy sauce that was extremely messy to eat. Food was good but not what I expected.

Campanella Modern Italian Cuisine

Reviewed By Steven P - Fort Collins, Colorado

I found this place by accident as it is kind of hidden behind Chipotle. Great find!! The service was excellent; attentive without being over-bearing. The menu was very well planned with the usual Italian fare and many dishes with a unique flair. I will go back JUST for the minestrone. My entre' was the fruita del mare' and I was impressed with the amount of seafood in this wonderful dish. We were thanked very genuinely on our exit with the even the chef waiving from the kitchen. Obviously, I highly recommend Campanella's for any occasion.
