Bites and bytes

Even from across the street you can't miss the light show flickering within uWink, the high-tech eatery that opened on the intersection of Castro and California in Mountain View. Inside, huge projection screens line every wall and demarcate seating areas, providing nonstop sensory input that keeps the joint humming.

I enjoyed the quesadilla - but it wasn't clear from the menu whether it was to share or for one - I had no idea how big it would be! As it was it made a fine lunch - and the food was very fresh inside it.

uWink is nothing more than a novelty. The table screens completely dominate the dining experience to the point that you need to move to the side just to eat comfortably. The food is good but not outstanding. The games mostly left me shaking my head. For example, my friend and I wanted to play a game against each other but were annoyed to find that most of the games do not allow you to compete directly against your table mate. And very few of the games are actually very challenging. It all seems just a little half hearted.

Two things that would at least make the experience tolerable would be the ability to surf the Internet and invite other tables to chat. All in all, a mediocre experience.

every time I walk by there, the place is empty. Guess the novelty is wearing off already.

Im looking forward to whatever takes its place--hopefully good food!
