    There is nothing not to like about Chef Russel and his team: spectacular food, a fire pit fed with cherry and almond wood, extremely friendly wait staff and a lovely wine selection.

    Brunch is great here, the potatoes roasted in duck fat, the sweet condiment plate with the ricotta, walnut butter, Barhi dates, and orange marmalade is rustic & excellent with the grilled bread basket

    “I find the cooking here incredibly seductive. I love its integrity, its bold, thoughtful flavors, and its ethos, plus the wood-fired oven and communal tables.” - Skye Gyngell, chef at Spring, London Read more

    Desserts aren't to be missed. A buckwheat tart ($10), where the dough wraps around thinly sliced apples, was lightly singed and blackened around the edges, stopping just short of being bitter Read more

    The duck is great! The Tunisian Orange cake is awesome, and that chicory salad is so fresh and delicious! :)) Do not get the crabs, not enough good, and sided with mayo :(

    Baked oysters with fennel were amazing. Really good cocktails with Amaris as well! Nice atmosphere for upscale oakland dining, good service

    Moist, coarse crumbed Tunisian orange cake ($9) defied its simple presentation, with clear, intense flavors. Read more

    Order more food than you think you will need. Servings are small, but the food is delicious.

    Depending on your mood, have yourself a flavorful Mint Julip, Purple Basil Gin, or Caipirinha.

    Wood-fired dishes from a chef who SF Chronicle's Michael Bauer describes as a brilliant cook and a master of the flames.

    It's no longer listed on the bar menu, but they'll still make you a Sazerac -- they make one of the best in the Bay Area.

    Doughnuts at brunch are amazing but sometimes they run out. If you're there after noon, ask for them as soon as you get seated.

    This farm-to-table-style restaurant takes pristine California ingredients and roasts them over a wood-burning hearth oven. The menu constantly changes, but try to go for weekend brunch. Read more

    Very Chez-Panisse like menu and quality...a good thing! Only downside is the menu selection which is limited to 3 entrees per day.

    Don't get the michelada. Not only is it $13, but comes in a 8oz glass so you have to ask for more tomato mix, which then then charge you $4 for, making it a $17 michelada.

    Pricey food and cocktails. Beer prices are insane! $14 for a bottle of beer? Mediocre meal with less than great presentation.

    Pisco Drink is excellent. If you've never had pisco or egg white cocktails you've gotta try it :)

    Indisputably tasty food and cocktails, but good lord it's not worth the price tag. Also, it's 1,000 degrees in there.

    Incredibly kind and patient with children. High chairs. Roomy bathrooms but no changing table. #gobabygo

    The roast duck is very good, but there are just a few options in the menu! The hostess was not receptive at all :(
