My wife and I have been going to Plum for several years now, and have always found the food to be amazing. The presentation is delightful and the flavors are unusual and inventive, but always comforting. In September 2013, the restaurants changed chefs, and to some degree approach, but the quality and service remain very high, and the tasting menu... More

My son and his wife took me to this restaurant for my birthday. Unique drinks, good service, a fairly simple menu. Lovely presentation. Even got to see our Mayor walk in and dine. Menu items equistely prepared. Lots of flavors. Wine list is very simple but for the occasion I brought something from home and they uncorked it for us.... More

This is one of the newer somewhat hipper-than-thou haunts in downtown Oakland. The somewhat gloomy interior and hard wooden seating is a little off-putting at first, but...the food really does stand out. Interesting combination of ingredients, well composed and presented dishes, if smallish and expensive. It's a definite foodie outpost; was not so crowded on a Sunday though bustling on... More

The best food I've eaten in a long time - recently have been to NY, Vancouver, LA, Seattle, and some of the best SF restaurants with clients and friends/family. This was the best experience by far - vegetarian food is a must whether or not you're veg! Everything is innovative, fresh, and the chefs do a great job at keeping... More

Destination spot, must go if in downtown Oakland! Great wine parings. Try the gnocchi, fried oysters & bacon or any of the fresh fish specials.

The food was wonderful, locally sourced, attractively presented, and delicious. The craft cocktails were imaginative and well executed and having Scribe wines on the menu make this a must destination in Oakland. The wait staff: warm, stylish and friendly. The decor and lighting make for a relaxed and inviting plan to dine. The bar next door is great too.

Plum has an excellent friendly staff and some very delicious and unique food. I would recommend it but it does have some minor problems that can easily be addressed. First, the food (as stated) was delicious but the portions were too small. We had drinks, apps, entrees and desserts but still left a bit underfed. The menu is not inexpensive... More

I highly recommend the restaurant Plum. I went to this restaurant with my best friend and we loved the food and service. The chef was able to accommodate all my friends dietary restrictions and still make her food taste great!

Uptown Oakland has ratcheted up a few notches on the "coolness" scale with the new Plum Restaurant on Broadway. Spare, trendy decor (Black backround paintings with hundreds of identical plums in a grid pattern), nice staff and very creative food. This wouldn't have been a restaurant for my cop father. He would have been startled by the small portions and... More

We went there with our son, and it is mostly an adult restaurant, but there was one other family. The staff was very nice, and the food was good. It felt like a very special evening. I don't think the food was 5 star, as I can't remember any of it, but it is a lovely place.
