Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
The best place to show off the loveliness of Oakland's urban nature, the eclectic-chic Oakland fashion scene, and the happy diversity of her residents.
Delicious fare at a reasonable price. And, you can have a conversation without shouting.
The fries and the artichokes are excellent!
Fresh, homemade syrups; fresh juices; creative and knowledgable bartenders - it doesn't get any better than that.

The map is incorrect. The restaurant is in JLS not Uptown.
Roasted Alaskan black cod, soy glaze, wasabi butter, orange oil, potato cake, ocean salad. Need I say more?
Amazingly good breakfasts (silver dollar pancakes a must) and friendly service keep me coming back.
We have been there about 7 times over the past ten years. It is great everytime. If you want a fine dining experience in the East Bay it would be my top recommendation. Skip the overly hyped -- and not so great places -- like Chez Panisse and go here instead.
Overpriced and not that good. When in the East Bay go elsewhere.
Not sure when this review was written, but I couldn't disagree more. Chef Alter has a firm grasp on flavor profiles and composes plates like a true artist. In a single dish, the diner can have half a dozen different bites, each for foretelling techniques that take hours to execute. Chef combines texture, temperature, and taste in manners that keep your palate interested and eager for more. She does plays on many foods that bring back childhood memories in a sophisticated way. And the source ingredients are as fresh and seasonal as can be.
I get around to many restaurants, but this one keeps me coming back for more and more. Hands down, my favorite Oakland restaurant.
The brunch is out of control. Waffles... huevos Cuauhtemoc... the torta. It's ridiculous.
Love their Friday Blue Plate Special: Two Wild Sprimp Tacos with Cabbage Slaw and Chipotle Cream!
