    Decent food, crazy spicy house ginger beer. Good for a cocktail and a tinder date.

    A happy meal for grown ups—burger with a beer and a shot. Oh and deviled eggs. And a real nice boulevardier.

    If I lived closer, I would make this my go-to. The menu and poetry is delightful.

    Paloma was tasty and strong. Me and 3 friends got it and 2 of them couldn't finish it 😅

    Dat 🍔 tho. Wait 45 min for it and it's a little salty but it's just the thing with barrel aged cocktails and chill waiters

    the food and drinks were good, but the service was not great. the bartenders were kind of rude, which was a bummer, cause the food was pretty good and they had a great drink menu.

    If you are in Plum Bar + Restaurant, try a Margarita with Pueblo Viejo Blanco.

    Grab a seat at the bar and get some Brussels Sprouts to begin. The cheese burger with smokey fries was excellent. Carefully crafted cocktails are absolutely worth it if you see something you like.

    Braised short rib with warm smoked potato salad is fantastic. Rib has some kind of tasty glaze on the outside. Ridiculous.

    One of the best burgers I've had in the bay area. Make it a happy meal with a shot of whisky and tap beer for $25. You can't go wrong.

    Perfect blend of high quality and low stress. Relaxed environment, and great execution from full dining to casual bar menu. Excellent cocktail list (especially the Penicillin) and drink specials.

    Dine on exquisite fish and chips, order the penicillin cocktail if you're a scotch fan, and grab the "Happy Meal" if you're on a budget.

    It has potential but it's expensive and the food you get isn't justified. $12 for a veggie burger without fries? I don't think so. Very Limited wine list and beer list, which ultimately turns me off

    The Ember. I had 3. Bourbon, campari, calisaya, sweet vermouth, PB sassafras bitters.

    If you're looking for the perfect Sunday night dinner, head to Plum Bar and order the Adult Happy Meal (a burger, fries, beer, and a shot). It's only $22. Read more

    Love the "Happy Meal". Great burger. Excellent cocktails. Not a great sign for the business that the two formally distinct menus were merged into one.

    They make their Manhattan's and bottle it. The place had a Brooklyn before it became too stuck-up feel to it.
  • Paula W.
    Ume is creative Northern Californian cuisine, using Japanese ingredients -- one will enjoy the food more if not expecting authentic Japanese cuisine. Like the tasty Umeboshi-glazed pork ribs.

    The BBQ chicken thigh with yuzu kosho is perfect. Cocktails are fantastic, try the barrel-aged Ember. Ramen needs lots of work, and won't satisfy ramen fans for $17, yet.

    Daniel is going yet another new direction. Annoying for regulars. He says Japanese food like this is what Oakland wants. We shall see. Try the fried chicken and ramen. Delish.

    The falafel flatbread was amazing, but stay away from the mac n' cheese - it was no good. Be sure to order a beer and a shot combo to get the most bang for your buck!
