Chris Aquino has worked his way up the ranks at Viognier over the past few years to head Chef. His menu boasts both creativity and confidence, while showcasing the bounty of refined, seasonal California fare. Nestled in the top of Draeger's market, this restaurant is a destination stop of the San Mateo downtown strip.

One of the best and most underrated tasting menu type restaurants in the bay area... and I've been to most of them. The wine pairing is superb. The dishes are a good size (read: not too small) and they use great ingredients. Just tasty and top notch. A great experience.

don't let the fact that it's on top of a grocery dissuade you. it's unbelievably fabulous. the sommelier is excellent - choose your own food and have him pair tastings for you. a worthwhile experience.

Went twice. Once for our anniversary and once for a New Years dinner party. Wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy. Snotty inattentive staff. Had to chase the waiter on both occasions for bread and water refills. Also, way over priced. I don't know why Dreger's puts up with them on their second floor.

We had an excellent dinner. The food was fantastic and the service was very good. I had a fantastic corn bisque. The pork belly was outstanding.

Who knew that the mid-Peninsula had such smashingly good haute cuisine? Excellent in 2009 and now mind-blowing in 2010, Viognier offers a classy (if pricey) place to take a date, with brilliantly executed courses, kind service, and a luxurious atmosphere -- even if you do have to climb above a grocery store to get there! Absolutely my favorite swanky spot on the Peninsula.
