Manresa is about as close as one can get to experiencing culinary creativity and perfection. The mastery of alchemy with natural ingredients is incomparable, and the textures and flavors unrivaled. The service is exceptional as well! The dining experience at Manresa Restaurant in San Jose was more than worth the time and money spent. It was memorable and left us longing for more. The Manresa meal was undoubtedly the best meal I've ever had the pleasure of eating. I'm not what you'd call a "foodie," but my friends brought me here this past weekend for my birthday, and I thought it was phenomenal. Of all of the courses, the two that I find myself continuing to think about now that a few days have passed are the savory ice cream, and "Into the Garden." So I suppose those were my favorites, although I very much enjoyed everything. The kitchen staff gave us an experience that we will never forget. And the waiter staff was impeccable. Everything was highly choreographed and just right.
