We were catching the Coast Starlight from Emeryville Station and had a few hours to kill. There really weren't very many eateries around the Amtrak station and before heading to the Subway we decided to take a stroll through the neighborhood. A mere 250m away we found The Bureau 510.This bar/eatery is a very well thought through fusion restaurant that offers a very large drinks menu. In addition to Happy Hour drink, they offer a Happy Hour menu every day from 4:30pm - 6:30pm, where most of the popular dishes are only $6!We tried an array of dishes and most were finger food/ smaller plates/ tapas style:-Spicy Chinese marinade wings (smooth & smoky sauce with a kick)-Battered cod (crunchy crust and super fresh fish)-Parmesan Fries (seasoned, herby, cheesy thin fries)-Korean pork tacos (spicy pork, avocado, fresh salsa and soft tortilla)-Onion rings (fresh, deep fried, crispy & juicy)-Asian chicken salad (fresh, nutty, sweet)The portions are great for sharing and I would recommend ordering a few dishes so that you create a tapas style meal!For dessert we ordered the hazelnut tartuffo and the berry crumble à la mode. Both dishes were fantastic.Our bill only came to around $60! If we are ever in the Bay Area again, we will come back!!

Luka's Taproom & Lounge

Reviewed By bill s

We visited this eatery before the Dobs-Spurs NBA playoff. Old style place. Classic floor, side-booths, reminds one of traditional, historic restaurants. Walls are adorned with antique black/white photos depicting local visual history. Monday, (all day) oysters for $1,00 each. Nice touch!, Before the 530pm tip-off, our 230PM seating allowed us only selections from the off-time bar menu. Corned-beef sliders were fresh, not salty and served on fresh rolls. Called drinks were $10.00, 30% less expensive than San Francisco restaurants. French fries, $7.00 crispy and delicious.Very good value and prices were reasonable. Service was respectful and instant. Worth a return.

Mersea is a destination. Located on the forgotten, but soon to be popular, Treasure Island. Mersea offers quality food, pricey but worth it. The place is built out of containers surrounded by succulents and the best views of the city. (Move over Sausalito) Great bar and wine list with nightly specials. The baked potato will change your life and the French Fries are totally worth $8. As a local, a Treasure Islander, and one of top concierges in the city I highly recommend this place. It’s casual, cool and a slow down from the city. Pro Tip: Ditch your Big Bus Night Tour when you get to the island and stay for dinner! The views are better without the crowd. When the red bus leaves the magic begins. Uber is only about $15 back to the city. Stay and live like a local.

After sightseeing around Jack London's Square we all agreed on pizza and decided to stop at Forge Pizza en route to the ferry. Service was fast and pizza and beer very good. We decided to sit outdoors with a nice view of the harbor. It was a pleasant late lunch without a crowd on a Saturday afternoon.

Eureka!

Reviewed By MarSonoma72

We were early for a show in Berkeley and decided to try this place out. The environment was lively with numerous televisions showing various NCAA and NBA basketball games. We were sat immediately. We waited a few minutes for our waiter and ordered our drinks first. The waiter came back and took our order. It took a while for our drinks to come to the table. The Osso Buco appetizer beat our drinks to the table. We didn't have any utensils or plates. The hostess brought us utensils but had to wait for plates. The Osso Buco appetizer was excellent. Mind you, our drinks still hadn't made it to the table. Our drinks finally arrived after 20 minutes of waiting, even after we asked out hostess since we were unable to flag down out waiter. The meal eventually came. We had the fish tacos and 2 cowboy burgers. I had my cowboy burger modified with bison meat. In all, the food was excellent. It took a while for use to (1) receive our bill at the end of the meal and (2) to receive my credit card back upon paying. If it wasn't for the service, this would have received a 5 out of 5.Word to management: Saturdays seem busy. You should always have extra people on in order to better serve your patrons.Word to waiters / waitresses: Just because you take an order doesn't mean you are finished with a table. Customer service is key in the restaurant business!

Late lunch as a family on a Saturday. Nice feel to the place especially outside. Good range of beers for an American restaurant/bar. Service is pretty good but food itself only very average. The Caesar Salad and the wedges were poor but the pizzas were good. So, OK just overall.

Reviewed By Kesslane

We loved this place but the menu was disappointing. Then we found out that they'd had a kitchen fire so weren't at full menu. But the beer was great and the vibe was very "happening" with the best that Oakland can offer....young, old, families, pets, ethnic, racial, and gender diversity. Wonderful!

Wood Tavern

Reviewed By Advntr18

It’s a small neighborhood restaurant that is adjacent to 2 other restaurants and a great bakery....I walk by when grocery shopping or grabbing some fresh croissants and coffee...catching glimpses of the food being served....it has a Wow factor! From attentive service to tasty, well conceived food. Make no mistake, this is tavern food .....elevated to contemporary upscale plateau. The flavours are not subtle and refined....we shared the Gnocchi 1st course....soft fluffy pillows balanced with cherry tomatoes, chanterelles, crunchy vegetables and subtle heat from chiles....The Halibut entree seemed to be most popular entree of the night seeing it on many adjacent tables...seared to a golden brown yet moist and tender inside, it sat on a bed of fresh corn .....the sauces were almost too strong over powering the fish essence...a fine line. My bone in pork chop was a generous portion, well seared yet lightly pink on the inside,,,,tender and moist. The bed of beans, andouille sausage and sauce was perfectly balanced with the pork chop. The peach marscapone dessert was good, but overshadowed by the excellence of the entrees....it’s kind of a noisy restaurant with an energetic ambiance...there is a small bar counter for single diners....good wine list. Service was A+

My adult daughters & I had dinner here on a Saturday night. It was loud & crowded, but the staff was friendly & worked hard to keep the food & drinks coming. We ordered the Not Mac & Cheese (very good, you would not have guessed it was butternut squash), burrata (deeelish!), carpaccio (very fresh), beet salad (goat cheese was perfect), & mussels (broth was garlic heaven). The place has an eclectic, funky vibe somewhere between a disco & an art exhibit. It was a little too loud for normal conversation, but fun.

Wanted a comfortable spot to talk to a friend coming through town briefly; made a reservation easily online. Service was excellent and we talked and ate slowly without feeling rushed by wait person. Food is fine though not memorable. Nice drink selection. Attractive interior. Good location. Restaurant offers valet parking in area where on-street-parking is generally filled.
