Three Seasons ***

Three Seasons entrance and courtyard seating

518 Bryant Street
off University Avenue
Palo Alto
650-838-0353

Cuisine: Contemporary Vietnamese

Description & Atmosphere
Three Seasons in Palo Alto is distinctly different in design and decor from its popular San Francisco counterpart, but both have one thing in common — outstanding food.

Harvey Jacobs (one of our readers) had this to say after a recent visit. "If you enjoy eating Vietnamese food in a warm, casual environment, then I would recommend the Three Seasons
in downtown Palo Alto, especially if you're dining with friends. The atmosphere buzzes with excitement and the food is delicious."

Peking Duck Rolls

Tucked away in the Ramona Plaza — a courtyard between Bryant and Ramona Streets — the Asian-themed restaurant features a cozy dining room, prominent bar area, balcony seating upstairs, and a striking stained-glass domed ceiling. Noise levels can be high, particularly when the restaurant is busy.



Food
The food is an appealing mix of Contemporary Vietnamese with Chinese, Japanese, Thai and French influences. Taste, texture and color are all important here. Each dish is creatively presented and served "family-style" so diners can share a variety of dishes.

You can make a meal of their killer Spring Rolls alone (there are 10 on the menu). We like the Peking-style Duck Rolls (photo above), Soft-shelled Crab Spider Rolls, and Grilled Eel Viper Rolls.

Other menu standouts include: Sesame-crusted Scallops (above right), Yellow Curry Chicken, Steamed Chilean Sea Bass, Japanese Eggplant, Spicy Green Beans, Chicken Satay, and Garlic Noodles. And for dessert...yummy Banana Springrolls or Chocolate Cake with Ice-Cream.
