Service is spotty have been here four times now and each time had the same amazing food but each time the service has fluctuated. The last visit was the worst. We essentially came and got sat at a table it seems no one thought was theirs. So it seems none of you wanted the 20% tip then. Odd scenario for... More

I take my mom here to enjoy relaxing and eating Kincaids Fish n Chips. Great food. I especially love relaxing looking out at the water as the world floats by.

Actually we came across the place as we were down by the waterfront and wanted to have a glass of wine late in the afternoon. We are not wine connoisseurs but knew enough to appreciate the selection was reasonable. So in later looking for dinner in the Jack London Square area of Oakland, there were several to choose from and... More

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
