    Flora's atmosphere's intimate & boast an amazing drink arsenal. Look for the bartender w/the beard that'll give the duck dynasty crew a run for their money & has a repertoire of bitters. #goodfood

    Ended up here after becoming an American? Grab a sit at the bar, get a burger (sticking your American flag on it optional), a shot of Maker's Mark and a bottle of Liberty Ale. Welcome to America!

    Flora has the best everything that I've tasted... The drinks were yummy and the food awesome ... .. Patrons book a window seat or bring enough people to occupy a booth. It gets loud

    Good for a late night bite as they have a limited bar menu. The burger was so perfectly cooked and the fries were thick and plentiful. They make a killer margarita on the rocks.

    Flora is the new restaurant that feels like it's been around forever. The service is perfect, the food is inventive without being weird, the cocktails are classic, and the vibe is strictly East Bay Ch Read more

    My favorite all-purpose Oakland restaurant. Great cocktails. Great burger. Great brunch. Nice Art Deco decor. Not too fancy.

    This pioneering spot is an ideal place for cocktails and a snack, such as the house-ground burger, charcuterie or steak tartare.

    Start with a Bulldog Smash at the bar (operative word: smash) and finish with the caramel pudding dusted with sea salt. Trust.
