Welcome to Rise Woodfire at the San Mateo Train Station

Proudly a local and family-owned business, we serve elevated comfort food in the heart of Downtown San Mateo. 

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. 

Now seating for indoor dining and outdoor dining. Come experience our state-of-the-art patio bar -- it's heated and covered!

Takeout service for pickup and delivery is also available.
