Ate here last night. Food was wonderful. Had the Ahi appetizer and the polenta cakes and the fish stew. All were outstanding. Also topped it off with a great chocolate chip bread pudding.

Pricing was very reasonable. We'll be back.

Re: “Picante

We LOVE this place. The food is fresh, and goes beyond the standard Mexican-American fare (though not by too much). The place is usually crowded, if not packed, even though it's huge. They also do take-out, and it's usually the first place we think of when we want to bring something home. It's also moderately priced. This has been our favorite restaurant for many years, and will probably stay that way for many years to come.

I'm giving Betty 5 stars. You know why? Because they only make a couple things but every one of them is delicious and they don't F around one bit. You walk in, order and BOOM you are stuffing your face with something amazing involving chicken.

There is no place to sit inside. You wanna sit, you sit on a stool next to an ironing board on the sidewalk outside. I don't think they have a bathroom and I don't even know if they have a trashcan, BUT, they have AWESOME FRIED CHICKEN and that is why you go there! Get you some fried chicken. Fried chicken pieces of the chicken sandwich and have a cookie and a lemonade. Or get a take-n-bake chicken pot pie and go home and be amazed.

There's no sign. It's nothing fancy. But, it will make you happy and full.

Re: “Mezzanine

Absolutely <3 Mezzanine!
Seen the best shows there. Perfect size, you can get close to the stage if you want or just chill in the VIP.
Great staff and always a blast.
One of, if not THE, best mid sized concert venue in SF.

Re: “Beer Revolution

One of my top favorite bars in the Oakland East Bay! This beer-only pub serves as a "Toys-R-Us" for the avid beer drinker. You'll be mesmerize by the endless options of the rare & delicious varieties of beer on tap or from one of their many refrigerators. The kicker is if you happen to select one of the yummy beers from the fridge and take it to the counter to pay- you get asked if you want to drink it there or "to go"! Yes folks- you can take one of these delicious flavored beers or ciders with you when you leave to enjoy at home! A great spot for good quality brews! Sorry- NO bud, pbr, miller or anything of that nature. But their raspberry beer, chocolate stout, & barley wine is to die for! Come make a new friend enjoy your lunch on a sunny weekend on their patio and watch for their occasional outdoor BBQs, beer tastings, and art shows!

This show will be off da hook!

Great flavors, service and prices! Order their platters with eye and taste appeal for large, informal gatherings like picnics or buffets, instead of overpriced, "gourmet" food. Just like the old country--i.e., Chicago, IL.

Re: “Hamro Aangan

So yummy. I wish I had the menu as I am bad with names but the vegi pakora, I believe it is called is definitely recommended.

Re: “Well Grounded Tea & Coffee Bar

Great place -- very convenient for El Cerrito folks, very friendly owners, good Semifreddi's pastry selection. Good lunch options too, bagel sandwiches and spanish-stype "bocadillo" sandwiches. Nice outdoor seating in good weather, very kid-friendly, and a nice gift shop is right next door for browsing.

Re: “Acme Bar

My favorite bar. It's more like a neighborhood tavern than a dive. Its got an amazing selection of liquor. Tons of whiskey in all price ranges. Great beer both draft and bottled. And I can't leave out the booze on tap! Seriously Jameson, Fernet Branca and Evan Willians on tap! Amazing! The bartenders are super cool and very knowledgable. They always teach me about the whiskeys and even give a small taste of ones I'm not familiar with. All in all it's one great bar.

Re: “Mercury 20 Gallery

Such a great space! Big improvement over their Grand St. space, and the work continues to be some of the most interesting art at the Murmur. A must see venue.

Re: “Dashe Cellars

First time i had this wine was @ Alamo Square Restaurant in SF 5 years ago. It was very good! 2 years ago, went tasting @ their location in Oakland & had a very good time! Their wines are very good & have surpassed Rosenblum in quality. I would highly recommend this local winery!

I stopped by their first show last Friday and was pleasantly surprised. The space is small but the layout is nice. Most importantly, the photographs were beautiful! Equally important, the spread was generous and they served champagne!

Re: “Chop Bar

Best burger I ever had and the service is excellent. The restaurant is fairly new and can easily get packed because it's been really successful since they opened....my advice, go early, sit at the bar, converse with the owner (who's really nice too) and fill up on beer, wine and their awesome burger!

Re: “Cinnaholic

Just go here. Seriously. You can't possibly go wrong.

Except with the mint icing. That was a little weird. But hey, there's a billion flavors and toppings to choose from, so you really can't go wrong. Old skool rolls are my favorite anyway. I could eat a million of them. So just go here and keep this place open, because FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS OR ISN'T HOLY, Cinnaholic is the greatest thing that's ever happened to me.

These rolls seriously ROCK.

By far the BEST veggie burger I have ever had! Wine for under $4! I brought my fiance in after trying the burger at Homegrown and he was floored. The owner even came by to clear our table and talk to us about the reciepe. So good, I can't say enough wonderful things!

Re: “Chez Panisse

Been going here since the early '70s and it still THE dining experience in the East Bay. Others may burst brightly on the scene, but day in and day out this is still, after all these years, an established level of excellence that sets the standard for the rest. Always something new on the downstairs menu. Excellent wine list (a tad pricey), really good wait staff and a kitchen staff that is happy to give you a tour of the kitchen. Be sure to make your reservations a month in advance to avoid disappointment.
