Iron Gate
This French continental restaurant is a throwback to its 1965 origins with its tuxedo-clad waiters pushing carts for tableside presentations—including for flambĂ©ed dishes like veal moutarde and steak au poivre. PSA: Save room for the souffle! 1360 El Camino Real, Belmont

Le Papillon
Set foot inside this elegant 41-year-old establishment and you’ll instantly forget the hustle and bustle just beyond its doors. Diners can expect French-inspired fare such as ragout of Burgundy snails, and braised duck breast with sour cherry, sage and black forbidden rice. 410 Saratoga Ave., San Jose

Plumed Horse
Opened in 1952, Plumed Horse rose to prominence and earned a Michelin star under chef Peter Armellino—who came on board in 2007, the same year it underwent a renovation. His splurgeworthy offerings include a black pepper and Parmesan souffle with Dungeness crab and uni fondue, and Sonoma lamb chops with charred Early Girl tomatoes, lemon cucumber and spiced eggplant. 14555 Big Basin Way, Saratoga

The Village Pub
A go-to for power lunches and special occasion dinners alike, the sophisticated fare—think citrus-cured kampachi and roasted chicken roulade—belies the casual moniker. While the menu is ever-changing, you can’t go wrong with its good ol’ pub burger or chocolate souffle. The wine list is as impressive as chef Dmitry Elperin’s dishes. 2967 Woodside Road, Woodside
