5 of the Best Restaurants in Walnut Creek

Walnut Creek is typically known for its high-end shopping, lush greenery, and ideal summer climate, but it is also earning a place in many foodie hearts. Here is a list of 5 restaurants that prove Walnut Creek is the ideal place to go to dine on a variety of fresh and delicious cuisine.

Walnut Creek Yacht Club
The Yacht Club opened in 1997 with a mission of bringing the finest and freshest of the sea to Walnut Creek. Why do they call themselves a yacht club? Because they wanted to bring the atmosphere the Bay to Walnut Creek. They offer a changing menu of ocean-fresh fare supplied exclusively by Osprey Seafood Company, in a nautical-themed space with an attached fish market. Customer Adriana Low review says it all: “Love this place! I came for my birthday celebration and enjoyed every moment of it! Everyone was friendly with smiles as busy as they were. The food was delicious. We had oysters, fried calamari for starters. Steamed Clam and Steak. Steak at a seafood restaurant? That’s what I thought until I had a taste and it was one of the best steaks I’ve had. Cooked to perfection (rare), melts in your mouth and cuts like butter. It was so tender and juicy! Of course, the seafood is delicious too, which is why I choose to celebrate my birthday there.”

Their fresh seafood is delivered daily from Tokyo’s world-famous Tsukiji fish market and Oahu’s Fish Auction.”
Here is what customer Teri Norbye said about her top restaurant pick, “Sasa is my husband and I’s favorite place to go for date night! We come almost every single week because they always have a special menu that changes every week, so it never gets boring to come here. The chef is very clever for coming up with new dishes every week. The staff are always very nice and welcoming and all of the food is excellent here! I highly recommend this place.”

Bold tastes encourage diners to explore the large international wine list, easily navigated by tasting notes. Many wines are offered by the glass in addition to pre-arranged flights to allow diners to compare different wines and discover new favorites. A warm, casual elegance defines the ambiance.
