As a rapidly growing, progressive city in San Mateo County, Redwood City boasts a vivacious and varying restaurant scene where even the pickiest eaters can find their ideal dish. Redwood City occupies a large stretch of the San Francisco Bay coastline, so, in addition to restaurants offering both traditional and worldly cuisine, residents and visitors enjoy a constant supply of fresh ocean fare. John Bentley's is popular for the upscale setting and new-American preparations of fresh seafood, while the Old Port Lobster Shack is a warm, low-key haven offering time-honored takes on the flavors of the sea. For lovers of fusion cuisine, the Red Lantern blends various Southeast Asian cuisines to create exotic, mouthwatering dishes.
Executive Chef Mike Hashemi has taken everything that made his Cupertino location such a valley favorite, and expanded into Redwood City. His mix of unique combinations, fresh ingredients and Persian cuisine make for a menu that foodies all over will find their mouths watering over. Lunch and dinner options are available, as well as private dining options.
