Re: “Millennium Restaurant

I loved the restaurant when it was on McAllister before it moved to Geary @ Jones, and I loved it on Geary too. Over the years there have been many great waiters and personable staff although after a best friend moved away I found myself less often at the restaurant. Now though, now that Millennium has moved to my hometown, I'm generating a new habit again.

Re: “Bay Wolf Cafe and Restaurant

Delicious fare at a reasonable price. And, you can have a conversation without shouting.

The mouth-watering food, friendly service, and beautiful design all make this place a very welcome addition to the neighborhood.

Re: “Rivoli

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.

Re: “Portal

Awesome food and atmosphere. The owner is incredibly accommodating and conscientious of the guest. Love the variety of food and multiple beers. The patio on a sunny day is THE place to be!

Re: “Venus

This is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere! The quality of their ingredients is impeccable and the technique and skill with which they prepare their food, particularly their vegetables, is truly unique.

Re: “Luka's Taproom & Lounge

I had a great time. The music has a nice old school back in the day Silks feel. I highly recommend checking out Body Language Thursday Nights at Lukas!

Re: “Disco Volante

Best late night food in Downtown Oakland. And they don't gouge you for it either.

Also, there are only two bars in Downtown that are open on Sunday nights and that are worth a damn, and Disco Volante is one of them.

And beyond that, the staff is excellent, and so is the atmosphere.

Re: “Disco Volante

I am a musician and have performed at Disco Volante three times. I (and our band) have been treated very well, Damon has been enthusiastic, helpful and supportive.The staff has been friendly and capable. I don't know where the critical person is coming from. I have only the best to say about Disco Volante. Randy

Re: “Disco Volante

the food at disco is out of sight! hot smoked pork belly? yes please! the wait staff is always very friendly and accommodating. the cocktails are nicely made. plus the bartenders are very knowledgeable about the beer and wine they serve.

i've played here a number of times, so i'm really not sure what the extremely negative review is about here. i've never been hassled in any way by the owner. he's a great guy, and a straight shooter.

come down to disco volante for some great food and drink. support local musicians!

Re: “Disco Volante

Lousy service - and they do not keep their committment to the musicians and pay them what was agreed upon in email.

I do not recommend this place as I said, the owner Damon was rude - demanded I give up the table I had been holding waiting for a friends to join me for dinner - no sooner did I give up the table when my friends came in. Because I had one of my artists performing their that night and had asked several people to come out to support I could not very well leave - we wound up standing in the back eating dinner standing up at the end of the bar - when I had sufficient seating for us - just 5 mins before their arrival! I had promoted telling my friends to come out and support this new business! DO NOT SUPPORT THEM!

Damon agreed to a $10 cover for the bands I booked - and refused to charge more than $5 - I understand venues are hurting - but when you agree to something you must keep your word - I even reached a compromise and communicated with the musicians - they still did not honor their word on the compromise - he was insulting to me - insulting to the musicians - and I strongly advise not going here - the only redeemable thing about this place are the corn nuts!

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 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!
