Horrible food, I felt sick immediately after eating it, I do not think it was fresh and the restaurant did not seem sanitary. I was very disappointed.
Horrible customer service. I ordered a red special for take out and when I got home there was no miso soup. I called in to complain and they told me that it was there policy that they do not give soup for take away and also they "Do not tell customers" that they don't.
DO NOT GO HERE!!!

Let me start with the punchline: I was accused by the server that I walked out without paying the bill. Is that stereotypical or what?!!
Of course, they found the signed receipt while I stood outside waiting at the front door -- feeling humiliated on top of the bad service I received.
I was never offered water, they never came to check to see if everything was ok after the food was served. They rave about how fresh their food is, but can't provide fresh table top condiments. They are stale.
I did notice Everyone else in the establishment had water and were tended to and asked if everything was ok.
If they only knew who I was they wouldn't of made such a bad judgement based on gender, race, or creed. But this is the world we live in. I am happy to spend my money elsewhere where I am treated as a human being who is an upstanding American citizen who votes.
Rude and ruder are the bartenders !! Cheap drinks don't make up for ruining someone's night!!
Extremely rude and uncivilized bartenders @ “The Missourie Lounge”, Berkeley, CA.
It was this Saturday, May 17th and there were two female bartenders serving that night. One is called “Nora” and other one I did not get her name but she has got tattoo all over. I was with few of my friends and I ordered some drinks. While the bartender(one with the tattoo) was getting the drinks ready, two of my other friends showed up so I requested her to add a drink to which she was already mad and acting rude for not ordering earlier. I do not know how on earth I could have done that. Well I asked if she could add yet another drink a “Corona”…….. and at this point she was so angry, looked me straight in the eye and started yelling …..
“YOU ARE KILLING ME. DO YOU WANT THE DRINKS OR NOT??
I was literally frozen for a moment trying to process my brain as to why would she be so outraged for adding two more drinks. I was very furious too to have been responded with such an attitude and extremely rude behavior only because I could not order all the drinks at the same time. So I told her if it is too much for her to get me the two drinks, I will pay for the drinks that I ordered earlier and will get the remaining two from the other bartender. But I could not believe what happened after that. As soon as she heard this, she poured all the drinks into the drain right in front of me, my friends and everyone at the bar without the slightest respect for anyone. And she started yelling again very furiously….
“I AM NOT GOING TO SELL YOU ANY DRINKS”.
I just stood there shocked again not knowing how to react. I was with a big group of friends for one of friend’s birthday party so I sucked it up and tolerated this unacceptable behavior to not ruin the party and left the bar with no drinks. Things gotten worse later when I realized that she had been treating some of my other friends very rude as well and on yet another incident later at night, the other bartender(Nora) had the nerve to snatch drinks from one of my friends and threw her out of the bar to maybe show her support and appreciation to her bartender friend’s uncivilized behavior. All of us (about more than 30 of us) left the bar that night with much disappointment but mostly confused for having received such an ill treatment from both the bartenders.
Well I am sharing this incident online in the hope that the bar management will look into this matter and deal with such uncivilized behavior from their employees whose rude actions are dragging the reputation of the entire business down the drain. I will post this excellent review on any possible sites that matters for the better of “The Missourie Lounge”.
Club okay music was good Staff was not so good. A employee by the name Rudy he was very rude for no reason. is he don't like his job he shouldn't work there.
The place is so depressing it makes a funeral seem like a birthday party. Anyone that knows the place from the past would agree. Get with it guys!
Overpriced and not that good. When in the East Bay go elsewhere.
This place is the definition of a dive bar!
was not impressed
Avoid Egbert Souse's on Piedmont Avenue. Egbert Souse needs to be closed! Egbert Souse's is a nuisance at all times of the day and night. Egbert Souse has a negative impact on Piedmont Avenue residents, visitors and businesses. Egbert Souse's customers are always blocking the sidewalk in front and around the bar. Fights break out at least twice a week (including with weapons). Customers sit in their cars playing loud music while drinking and using drugs. The City of Oakland has even filed lawsuits against Egbert Souse's. How many people have to be shot and killed at Egbert Souse's to get it shutdown?
Service was fast food grade left something at the table for 5 minutes and it was gone Be careful!
