Blind Tasting Restaurant - Great Wine, Beer and Food
Blind Tasting Restaurant is the creation of two brotherlike cousins with a shared vision of a great wine, beer and food.
Blind Tasting Restaurant’s Redwood burl slabs created rustic, cozy, dimly-lit den offers unpretentious atmosphere, perfect for an intimate gathering or a spontaneous after-work drink.
We strive to introduce our friends and neighbors in the Bay to the world of wines and beers. Our beer and wine list bring you an unusual extensive selection from small and large producers.
Our food, largely small plates, is carefully crafted by our chef to complement the wines and beers.
Whether you decide to stroll in for a carafe of wine or mug of beer with a friend, or book your party, our friendly staff is here to make you feel at home. Wine and Beer is our passion and we are happy to share it with you.

I found this gem while on a business trip to the Bay Area. I was greeted by “Kadir,” a very charming and pleasant host, not sure if he is the owner or one of the owners? Nevertheless, he tended to me immediately. I started with the sparkling wine flight which was delicious. I ordered the Ahi Tuna Sliders, AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The service and food were all terrific. I had the best experience here and I highly recommend this restaurant. They have a great menu with a variety of foods but not overdone. I feel they are focussing on quality over quantity, but there is something for everyone. The interior is really welcoming and chill with a few big screen TV’s. I chose their outdoor seating as it was a beautiful afternoon. I will return for one more delicious meal before I head home! Thank you Kadir!

My friends and I have a standing weekly lunch and lately have been trying new places. Really enjoyed our lunch here – nice wines by the glass, artichoke beignets, tacos and Caesar salad. The lovely Anna took good care of us and took the extra effort to make sure I got anchovies for my salad. We’ll be back.

This place had been on my list for a while now and it was worth the wait. I am always down when the plans include wine and beer flights. They have a good selection and beer actually. They also have a great ambiance and outstanding service. I had a delicious Skirt Steak while I enjoyed wine and beer flights, it was just amazing!
For dessert, I tried their Classic New York Cheesecake, absolutely delicious. I will definitely go back and try more things off the menu. This is my new favorite place in San Carlos. If you haven’t already you definitely need to put this place on your list to check out!

Came last night for a first date and LOVED our experience. We decided to sit indoors and the interior is gorgeous. Our server, who seemed to be in charge, was attentive but not overbearing. Service was fantastic and my date and I decided to do wine and a few small plates to share.
We had the ahi tuna, ceviche and artichoke small plate, each came beautifully presented and delicious. Wine selection was ample and while I wished for a few more options, I was pleased with the Patz and Hall Pinot Noir. I will definitely be back!

Was in the area and in need of some food. Naturally, I Yelped and Blind Tasting Wine and Beer Bar came up. I mean, how can you go wrong with a beer bar?! I was able to sit inside at the bar and the bartender was attentive and offered suggestions. I was surprised at the menu! I love bone marrow, but a lot of places don’t have it but the bartender said it was great.
I ordered it and was not disappointed. It came with toasted pita bread and fresh grilled veggies. The bone marrow was perfectly cooked and the pita bread was a great vessel to enjoy it on. The veggies cut through the richness and were perfectly seasoned. Next time I come to town again, I will have to stop by and try out more of the menu.

It’s was so fun here! The food was great, and the drinks were a lot of fun since we did a flight of beer and wine. Our server was about the closest thing to perfect you could ask for, and she was new. The place was a well oiled machine. They handled the crowd effortlessly, so hats off to management. This place will always be a stop on our list of restaurants and bars on this fun street!

Today it was mine and my friends first night out since the Pandemic. Our server Kadir was lovely. Best Customer service that we’ve experienced in a long time. He suggested awesome dishes that we enjoyed and loved so much. Thank you for the hospitality we will be back some.

Came here for a quick drink while waiting for dinner. They have a great wine and beer collection. We even tried the blue champagne and it was great! Service was also great. I will definitely be coming back 🙂

Absolutely love this place! They are beyond hospitable! Burak, Kadir, and Kurt are so kind and make you feel very welcome! The food, drinks, and atmosphere are fantastic! We even hosted a luncheon for my sons baptism and they were great with Covid Guidelines and made everyone feel so comfortable! Great place to meet with friends, family, or even coworkers. We bring our little one and they are so accommodating and wonderful! Great place for lunch or dinner!

Went out with colleagues to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday and really enjoyed this new San Carlos find. Tried out their wine flight of 3 red wine tastes. After each one the server would ask if we could guess the varietal. Got 2 out of 3! Also had some very tasty appetizers and sampled churros and beignets. An awesome new find and definitely will be back!

My friend and I LOVED this place. We walked up and down Laurel before deciding to wander in for outdoor seating. We both ordered wine flights, which were delicious and smelled lovely. The service was friendly and prompt. The food was oh so good. We ordered the crab and artichoke dip and the Filet Mignon Flatbread (which we are still talking about). The server didn’t quite know how to do a cappuccino yet but they made a good latté . The only negatives were that the dulce de leche cheesecake was not great and the heater was barely working however these are not bad enough to lose a star. We are absolutely coming back.

First timer but certainly plan to be a regular. Can’t rave enough about how delicious all the dishes were! From the calamari and tuna tar tar to the gnocchi, spaghetti and flat bread each was the best I’ve ever eaten. The only down side was there were only 3 servers for about 15 tables which caused longer wait times. Tables were nicely spaced out.

Ordered the pork baby back ribs with fries, lamb burger, and cowboy chicken sandwich. Along with a dunkle and hazy ipa beer. All were very good. It was hard to decide which was the best dish. I would go back again! Nice ambiance, sports screens, beer selection, and downtown San Carlos.

Love this place! Me and my high school friends try to get together monthly and we always go here! We love the wine and menu selections and the staff is super friendly. They make you feel like family and are super accommodating to our whole group. We always feel welcome and they never rush us as we eat, drink, and catch up. It’s a great space for a group or even a date night. Can’t wait to go back!

Trying the blind tasting flight was fun!! Every one of the wines we tried was good. And the food (especially the small plates) measures up to the wine very well. Fresh and high quality ingredients in the flavorful steak salad. The dessert didn’t disappoint either. We will definitely be back.

This is an American-style tapas place with a great selection of scrumptious small-plate dishes and a vast selection of excellent wines and beers. Have been there twice, once to celebrate a friend’s birthday, and next to introduce the restaurant to my husband as I was sure he would love it. We’ve now added this place to our list of top go-to restaurants in our area.
I won’t name any of their dishes here because everything we’ve tried so far has been great! The friendly staff is more than eager to suggest their favorites or you can just pick a few from the menu, you can’t go wrong! Enjoy! We certainly do every time we go.

Excellent selection of wines and beer! Expressively livey for a Wednesday in San Carlos. With a rustic and modern atmosphere it hosted a eclectic variation of guests. My sister and I ordered wine flights (ordering another glass of our favorites) octopus salad or other and the bone marrow!
Everything was delicious and at the end we were surprised with a complimentary dessert! I must note that my sister was not impressed with one of her rosés. I cannot recall which one and for that I apologize! FUN FACT: You can buy wine by the bottle to go!

The staff was quick as could be, but definitely busy. It’s a wine and beer place, but had to ask for a separate beer menu that is it’s own menu. It is a bit pricey. if you want wine by the glass it’s $$$$, but by the bottle it’s about average. There is a decent beer selection, but nothing compared to Ale Arsenal. And there is a decent wine selection, but not compared to Cask. The food is good, but not as good as Town. I believe this is a soft opening, and hope it improve a little but across the board. But worth checking out.
