Seven Restaurant & Lounge – San Jose

Tall windows at both sides of this 108-seat restaurant, along with high ceilings, flood the space with natural light generating an ethereal, airy atmosphere perfect for daytime dining.

High-backed leather booths, obscure glass screens and curtains—which partition the space, concealing the kitchen—provide for an intimate setting at night. The elevated bar and lounge area overlooks the dining room and serves as a chic nightspot for locals. Marble countertops with copper and wood detailing; smooth concrete floors; the entrance's elliptical, intricately textured brick wall and other features suggest a casual yet sophisticated elegance.
