About La Forêt
La Forêt is one of the preferred locations in San Jose for its combination of fine French dining in a tranquil countryside setting. The historically significant building dates back to 1848 and boasts a quaint charm with its stylish and traditional interior. It sits next to a quietly meandering stream in the verdant foothills of New Almaden. Expansive windows surround the entire dining area, allowing guests to fully enjoy the beautiful surroundings during their meal.
Frequented for its offsite spaces, which allow us to host all types of celebrations, parties and events – La Forêt specializes in French and Continental dishes served in a modern setting. The restaurant has earned a rightful place among the area’s finest restaurants and is known as one of the 50 best French restaurants in the United States. Delectable dishes from the kitchen of La Forêt are complemented by vintage wines, welcoming dining rooms, offsite spaces and attentive service. From the moment you are seated until the last bite of the signature Soufflé Grand Marnier, La Forêtoffers the complete high-end dining experience.
