Awesome pre - Oracle choice

I've been looking for a place to get a bite to eat before game time at Oracle Coliseum. (Go Warriors!) It's a challenge coming from the south bay as traffic on 880 can be very difficult. Eating at Jack London Square seems a good option but most restaurants open at 5 - 5:30PM. This can work, but... read more

Just passing the place you smell the cooking. The food was great. No complaints. The place was crowded but it was restaurant week. They offered a large menu. The trio dessert was excellent.

Wow! Service was attentive, professional and just plain excellent! Kincaid's has a great view over San Francisco Bay and we arrived just as the sun was setting -- spectacular! Our server, Jesus, suggested one of the evening's specials -- a salmon dish with a honey glaze fingerling potatoes, arugula and root vegetables; my wife went with his suggestion. I ordered... More

Very good Menu-something for everyone. Outstanding service and atmosphere. Sunday Brunch is oustanding as is happy hour. Don't miss out on Kincaid's.

The seafood here is amazing--try the blackened catfish jambalaya--and the service is wonderful. The bar is comfortable, friendly and the bartenders are very attentive. We really enjoy stopping in for happy hour and we know we will be back.

Great experience every time I have eaten at Kincaid's. Great views of the water from the window seats, great for meetings or romantic evening.

On a recent visit to Northern California, I invited a couple of former co-workers to have lunch with me. They picked Kincaid's which is one of their favorite restaurants....sitting on the water at Jack London Square. I arrived prior to my guests and was greeted by a gracious young host (Matthew) who checked our reservation in the computer and sat... More

This is the second time we have had dinner at Kincaid's. The first time was wonderful.....absolutely perfect. However, we were there for dinner again (last night) and were really disappointed. One of the orders served wasn't the item ordered, so the waitress took it back and promised to get the correct entree to us right away. By the time it... More

We wanted to dine on the water before heading home to GA, so we chose Kincaids, based on their online menus and reviews. And we're so glad we did. We went early, so we were able to choose from the Happy Hour menu or from the Dinner selections. The HH menu has the items we were interested in at very... More

Sat in bar area as we didn't want to wait for a table (Sat night). Full menu available in bar. I had lobster, my BF had steak. Food was amazing and super tasty. Drinks were really good. Wait staff among the best! Would definitely return here!
