Downtown SJC has a very cool vibe and I always like to go there.

We visited El Adobe last night (July 1st) and they would no longer offer the dinner package which expired on June 30th. This was OK and i understood. What was not OK was the manager who did not want to accept the $45 Travelzoo certificate. He finally relented (maybe he read the T&C's for the first time?) and said he was doing me a favor by accepting. The food was mediocre and honestly, my wife and I were more than content to only eat $50 worth instead of $90.

Terrific food, excellent waiter

Automatically added 18% gratuity - maybe they have had a problem with Travelzoo purchases and no tipping, but I always take into account the original bill amount - this just seems pushy/tacky.
