About La Forêt

La Forêt in San Jose is a beautifully designed restaurant overlooking a picturesque creekside. The romantic French eatery has pleased generations for over two decades as New Almaden’s preferred private party event venue for rent.

Specializing in fine French and Continental cuisine, La Forêt in San Jose has earned its place among the area’s finest restaurants and a place among the 50 best French restaurants in the United States. Delectable dishes from the kitchen of La Foret are complemented by the meticulous dining ambiance and the attentive service. From the moment you are seated until the last sip of coffee, La Foret offers the complete dining experience.

Treat your guests to French culinary classics cooked in a quaint country setting in the New Almaden foothills of San Jose. Nestled in South San Jose’s Almaden Valley, La Forêt sits next to a romantic forested creekside spot. The building that houses the restaurant has a long history, having served as a boarding house in the mid-1800s, and another popular restaurant after the 1930s. Since then, it has flourished into one of San Jose’s most sought-after private party event venues for rent for its impeccable service, mouth-watering dishes and charming setting.

From five-course holiday prix fixe menus replete with variety from the roasted quail with huckleberry sauce to a salad of mixed greens with smoked duck to delectable entrée options with elk and poached salmon to Kobe beef and buffalo steak – every visit to La Forêt is a treat for those who appreciate the finer things in life.
