This is a restaurant I have to visit at least once on every trip to Oakland/Alameda. It's located on the waterfront at Jack London square with an outside sitting area for those lush summer evenings as well as amble space inside for larger groups. The food is mostly seafood oriented with fresh fish, shrimps, crabs and lobster in different varieties... More

The selection ranged from the usual fish and chips to the most exotic. I had a pasta and seafood dish that was PERFECT. I went with two companions and everything was excellent. We ended up tasting each others and finally asked for extra plates so we could actually share the entrees. Also a great selection of desserts, however, the entrees... More

This is one of my best restaurants at Jack London Square. It is very spacious to accommodate wedding ceremonies in its west wing room. The food is very pretty good and they tend to serve large portion of Salmon, which I like very much. I'd recommend this restaurant to couples looking to have some romantic time.

Been there several times. Love the Sunday brunch...Dinner was ok. Food was tasty but not to Scott's standard. Service was OK not excellent. If you go to Dinner and spend over $100 it should be excellent and it just wasn't

The food is very good and the service as well. The seafood is their specialty, however, all of the dishes are above average in quality. It is a little pricey, however, the waterfront views and the live piano musician make it worthwhile. The location at Jack London Square in downtown Oakland is very lovely.

If you love seafood, this is the place to eat. Excellent service and friendly and helpful staff. The menu is extensive, but is not cheap.. Some to the tables get a great view of the water between Oakland and Alameda. Booking is essential.

We had a huge party for my mom here with 16 people. We had a great time. The food was fine. Nothing to write home about, but the service, selection and location make up for it. I highly recommend getting the sourdough bread which was the highlight of the meal. The location is the heart of Jack London Square with... More
