Welcome to Rise Woodfire

Proudly a local and family-owned business, we serve elevated comfort food in the heart of Downtown San Mateo, located right at the San Mateo train station. Born out of our owners Omid and Susan’s passion for people, pizza, and wood-fired cooking, our menu brings together an unexpected yet delicious combo of wood-fired pizza, rotisserie fare, and even homemade pies! Savor family favorites like our prime rib and rotisserie chicken slow roasted over a wood-burning spitfire with a side of creamy macaroni and cheese. Or, why not enjoy one of our wood-fired pizzas made famous at our Pizzeria location in Burlingame. We’re proud to use the best ingredients and unique dough to create mouth-watering gems and to craft signature cocktails at our two beautiful bars. 

Come experience our state-of-the-art patio bar -- it's heated and covered!

Takeout service for pickup and delivery are available.
