Excellent service, staff is friendly and the food is great. Had a bacon cheeseburger medium beef and it was delicious, accompanied by french fries and a cup of mac & cheese, managed to scruff it down and was ultimately satisfied, definetely recommend it, modest prices.

I hired Gunthers catering for a celebration of life in March. The service was above my expectation and I loved how they intertwined the families irish culture into the food. It was beautiful and elegant and the cookies were to die for! Steve is excellent and the best contact for the company. They gave us complete white glove service ... read more

This restaurant is the best! I really love their decorations inside and out. The food is superb with a different style of presentation that makes me amazed. The ambiance is very cozy with very relaxing music throughout. This is not an ordinary restaurant but extra-ordinary. I highly recommend them to everyone.

It's not Katz's Deli but it's definitely the best you're going to find in the South Bay. We tried the Hot Pastrami, the Rueben, the Corned Beef AND Pastrami Philly (my fave of the three), the Matzah Ball Soup, Knish and Red Cabbage. ALL were good. They also brought us hot, gooey, fresh from the oven chocalate chip cookies while we wa ... read more

Delicious reuben sandwich and even better Jager schnitzel! Ordering through their website was really easy. Haven't tried their desserts but they looked amazing. This place is a solid choice and will be coming back.
Gerardo Alvarez via - Jan 17, 2021

This place has been here for decades and I have been driving past it for decades. Anyways, we ate lunch here a few weeks ago and I had a Reuben sandwich for the first time. Corn beef AND pastrami? Oh HECK yeah! As we waited for our food to arrive, the kind waitress brought us one of their chocolate chip cookie mounds. I'm not even su ... read more

Hands down a local favorite. Cookies are sooooo good you will come back just for them! Chicken tortilla soup? Yes, please! Matzah ball soup according to Gunther is a cure all soup. And I believe him! I always get it when I’m feeling a little under the weather.

Outstanding diner! Gunther’s gets a lot right on their menu which I could go into at length. However, my go-to is the Rueben. Simply great. Lots of meat, the right amount of kraut and everything else. The other must eat is the chocolate chip cookie. My strong recommendation is to take a few home for later. Then when you are ready, pu ... read more

Gunther's is one of those restaurants that have become an institution in San Jose. They have been in business since I can remember - and that was a hell of a long time ago. The food is CLASSIC deli.

We were looking for someplace in San Jose that had corn beef and pastrami and we hit the jackpot at Gunther's. The reuben sandwich and the deli pastrami sandwich fed 3 of us. Both meats have really good seasoning on them. The rye bread was top notch too. We got a side of their mac & cheese that was very good. It had the consistency t ... read more

Gunter's offers some great traditional German dishes at reasonable prices. The atmosphere is a bit towards "American Coffee Shop", but the similarity to a coffee shop ends there.
