I get it, the drinks suck!

During happy hour, the drinks on their menu is even more lame.

I'd skip this place if i were you.

Small, not really a lounge area. Stuffy and the vibe and ambient isn't as nice.

SERVICE: 5 stars!!
FOOD: 3.5

I've been to their former restaurant Poleng, which was in SF but is now closed. The service has never been an issue, but the food still needs some work.

Sweet Potato Fries - extremely salty and the banana ketchup was not a hit with any of us.

Garlic Noodles - decent, but i've definitely had better. We skipped the crab because as I remember from last time, it doesn't make a real difference and isn't worth the bang for the buck

Shichimi Brussel Sprouts - one of the better dishes, not because it was unique or exciting, but because it was a strong basic, especially among asian tapas places

Inihaw Kinilaw Surf & Turf - the pork belly was good, but hardly anyone ate the ceviche

Beef Salpicao - the filet mignon was alright, not the most tender, but i loved the crispy onions on top

Lychee Go Mango - if you like sweet drinks, this is definitely a winner! but i could have gotten it for way less if we had eaten downstairs for happy hour

Overall, I think this spot is a good addition to San Mateo. I hope they improve their food to match their excellent service!!

TIP: HH is from 5-10pm!!

Relaxing bar/lounge in the downtown San Mateo that offers happy hour for drinks and food from 4 -10pm, under attic also serves daily food specials (on day of visit it was bone marrow thursday). Awesome!

When you walk in, you're at Under Attic. Go upstairs for the Attic. You should probably make a reservation...we got lucky and just grabbed a seat at the lounge since the tables were reserved. The chicken adobo lollipops were delicious. Pork belly with gailan was ok. The sweet potato fries were awesome! Shoestring fries with banana ketchup. For drinks, the lemonade wasn't worth the price for such a small glass. My boyfriend got some drink with mango purée, Thai basil, and ginger ale that was good. I'd like to come back for happy hour!

Interesting take on Filipino food. There's a slight wait for main dishes, but it comes hot and tasty. Staff is super friendly and accommodating. Drinks are good, and some are pretty unique. There's a lounge area by the bar (upstairs, with the dining area), which I think I'd prefer over the bar downstairs.

Under Attic Restaurant is, well, under attic. Lulz! This would be considered a more bar like atmosphere with their own separate bar menu of delicious hot wings. Mind you, my lady love likes spicy, but the spicy wings here were much too much for her. And not to be outdone.. I ate the remaining regardless of how much my body will make me regret the endeavor. That aside, the Startender is a blast at her craft of drink making and is just all smiles!
;D
