We ate here twice on our trip. The price isn't exactly inexpensive; however, the food was very good. Both times we ate on the bar side of the restaurant, which was very crowded. The tables are very close together. We felt like we were eating with the party sitting next to us. I would recommend sitting on the other side.... More

We have dined here many times and have always enjoyed the staff and food. This time was just for a quick lunch and for the first time we sat outside by the marina. Of course a much more casual setting but it was a warm June day and we had just as good service and we enjoyed the view. Inside... More

My husband and I dined 6/13 which was suggested by the hotel we stayed at for the night. It is beautifully located at the harbor. Great views of San Francisco and the Golden Gate bridge. We arrived about 3:30 after a very long drive from Sequoia National Park. We sat at the bar until the dining area was ready. I... More

On the water with beautiful atmosphere and tasty drinks, excellent food served by pleasant professional staff. Great wine list. We went here more times than any other place during our stay in Oakland.

Went to Kincaid's on a recent Saturday evening and had a wonderful experience from beginning to end. We came without a resevation and were given a perfect table in the corner with a view of the cranes, the marina and the skyline. The table was perfect for conversation with our son, whom we were visiting. Started with a delicious calamari... More

Visited on two separate days of the week. This was a stop before going to Yoshi's Jazz club. Reasonably priced munchies and drinks from 3-6 pm. They have everything from hamburgers to seafood. Good service and location. Will be back.

You can eat here and see the bay from the other side. It was very easy to park in the garage and just walk to the restaurant. The restaurant was wonderful. The server was excellent and apologized for the service eventhough we were relaxing. We didn't realize anything had taken longer than normal. I would definitely go back. Be careful... More

There are many good restaurants in Oakland and many of them are very "up to date" and fashionable, with all sorts of weird combinations, some of which work and some of which are not so good. Kincaid's is more old-fashioned, even though the menu has been updated considerably since the first time I went there years ago. But, if you... More
