    Huge, 2-story space with a DJ upstairs and random art all over the walls. Vegetarian burger is fine but highly recommend the cheeseless mac n cheese.

    The mussels and ribs were some of the best food I've had in a while. The vibe of this place is very energetic and lively. It turns into a club late. A place that rivals the best that SF has to offer.

    The burger is where it's at! Add provolone and avocado and have it cooked medium rare and you will keep coming back for more. Love the vibe here with the DJ upstairs and high ceilings.

    Recommend getting a reservation, or arriving not at peak times to grab delicious cocktails and small plates. A bit on the expensive side.

    We were here on a Friday for lunch. Good selection of beer and great food. Loved the loft style layout of the place. The cheeseless Mac n cheese, Brussels sprouts and sandwiches were all excellent!

    the mussels and fries are my favorite meal in oakland. the broth is rich and flavorful. also-all of the cocktails are magical,but the pimms and needles has a special place in my heart.

    Awesome spot. Pretty lively, with cool crowds and great food. Try the ribeye, the chicken Milanese, and the tuna appetizer.

    My favorite restaurant in Oakland. It's all about the apps: mac n cheese, bone marrow, padron peppers, garlic prawns...all served in a super trendy space.

    First time there and loved it. Huge former car showroom but very intimate at the bar. Bar staff very professional and friendly. Drinks great. Bar food excellent. Great vibe. Will definitely return.

    The no-cheese mac and cheese is so good! I also love their bread pudding. Get a cocktail, share some small plates. I stick to the small plates vs. the entrees.

    Big restaurant that I'd imagine is great for parties. Tried the Blackened Catfish with dirty rice and was not disappointed. Great for grabbing a bit at the bar too.

    Attentive service, unpretentious environment, and good food. My vegetable ragout was surprisingly spicy - the menu did not mention it at all - but I did have cheese puffs to help it along!

    The vegan mac n cheese was AMAZING. We were sort of bummed that some of the other most popular items were out of stock, but I guess that proves that they're really really good. Will be returning.

    Mua has an incredible interior space and a breadth of menu options. I highly recommend. Moscow Mule was the best drink I had during the night.

    The ambiance and music are great. The food is just ok, we got the ribs, the Mac n cheese, and some drinks. I don't think they know how to make good drinks. Or what tapas mean.

    Calamari is great to share (avoid eating the peppers unless you like spicy). Fried chicken and the po'boy crab sandwich are a must try!

    I suggest these wide array of plates, good Lamb cheeks, delicious Bone marrow, crispy Fried calamari, a Blackened cat fish and the always enjoyable Brussels sprouts.

    This place is huge. Great cocktails, great food. Always have a great time - it's a party vibe in the back, dine out front if you want to chat over dinner!

    My favorite place in Oakland. Really good food (try the tuna tartare) and hip and diverse crowd to boot!

    Very cool vibe and somewhat upscale clientele. Come for the drinks and atmosphere - food is better (and more reasonably priced) else where. Plus they charge 20% gratuity for party of 5 :(

    Things that were good: bone marrow, duck confit, pecan tart (not too sweet). Disclaimer: Ambiance is pretty hipster.

    Where to start? Mac N Cheese, Fried Calamari, Brussels Sprouts and the Crab PO Boy are a few great ideas.

    Must try Mac & Cheese, Shiitake mushrooms and their special popcorn crawfish if it's available. Get the house manhattan if you're there for happy hour.

    Been here a few times. Music is a bit too loud. Seems like they are trying too hard. Bone marrow and fried chicken are fantastic. Not impressed with any of the other entrees.

    "Burger Joint" it is not. Had wonderful mussels and catfish. Ask for the gluten free menu if need be.

    The 24-hour BBQ spare ribs are simply to die for, went back there just for those.
