Ever since Loft Bar and Bistro opened its doors in the Summer of 2005, we‚Äôve proudly served Downtown residents, working professionals and visitors, offering satisfying meals and quality dining experiences. When it comes to participating with fun events like Dine Downtown, we love the idea of being introduced to new diners, while also being able to offer something fun and exciting for our regular guests.

What to Expect

When guests arrive, they always have an option for seating. We have a street-level dining room and full bar, sidewalk patio seating to view all the DTSJ action, an upstairs dining room that overlooks 2nd Street, upstairs lounge seating near our second full bar and our iconic rooftop patio for those who prefer to dine al fresco.

We have both stairs and an elevator to help guests make their way upstairs. Once guests are seated comfortably with menus, they are almost always blown away by the awesome selection of traditional American style dishes, like: Grilled Filet Mignon, Crab Stuffed Salmon and our signature Homemade Meatloaf, along with some adventurous worldly cuisine options, such as: Teriyaki Beef Short Ribs, Blackberry Pork Medallions and our famous Chinese Chicken Salad.

If guests still have an appetite for dessert, they may choose to indulge in a slice of Cheesecake, hot Fudge Chocolate cake or Fresh Berries with Grand Marnier Sabayon. No matter what they order, it’ll be familiar, welcoming and everyone is sure to leave satisfied and happy.

Our Little Secret

Some folks might not know just how special a meal at Loft Bar and Bistro is. One of our little known secrets, is that we share some of the best kitchen staff with a fine dining steakhouse in Downtown San Jose for both lunch and dinner, and some of the most experienced bartenders and loyal servers you’ll find in DTSJ.

Here at Loft, we’ve always strived to be affordable and approachable, in addition to providing good portions of quality food in a casual and friendly atmosphere. Having a phenomenal kitchen and service staff is one major element that separates us from most other restaurants.

Beyond Dine Downtown

We love Dine Downtown, and plan to participate with this fabulous culinary celebration annually. No matter what the celebration is, every week we offer crazy drink specials like half-off martinis on Mondays and Tuesdays, and half-off margaritas every Thursday.

Beyond lunch and dinner, we also have Happy Hour everyday from 3p-7p. For folks who love to party at night, (after dinner service) we open our upstairs dining room and rooftop patio for DJs and Dancing every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, and it’s a blast. Lastly, we can seat up to 250 people and are the go-to venue for corporate events, weddings, social gatherings, rehearsal dinners and all types of celebrations.

Loft Bar and Bistro has been an SVO member since 2006.

Wondering how you can help during this time? Social distancing doesn't mean social isolation. We still need to support the nonprofits in our region who are continuing to provide critical services to the people of our community day and night—ensuring our most vulnerable populations are being housed, fed and cared for. However, they could really use our help in a number of ways: donating extra supplies, offering your time as a volunteer or through any generous donations in order to sustain themselves.
