To chill out with friends

Nice and chill place that we used for a birthday get together. The place seems to be a mix between a pub, a bistro and a night club restaurant... And it's pretty well made! First room is the pub /bistro, dark and noisy, fortunately we go straight to back, straight to the pool table with hips of... read more

The menu is eclectic and our party of four ordered quite a variety: each dish got rave reviews. The food was surprisingly good for a place with such a casual atmosphere. Definitely worth a repeat visit ... or two.

I had four people at this resturant and each had a different dish but I had the hamburger which was excelllant. The cocktails were very good and the service was excellant.

I had been to Luka's for weekday lunch but never for brunch. The place is known for its fried chicken wings, but there are plenty of other interesting options on the menu. My friend and I could not resist ordering the Green Tomato Benedict: two English muffin halves, each with strips of chiles and slices of avocado, topped with a... More

This is for the weekend brunch as the fried chicken wings are only available on the weekends. We came here after our exercise class and wanted to share something so we ordered the fried chicken and eggs with a side of bacon. It came with 3 delicious and crispy chicken wings, a large portion of lumpy but tasty grits, a... More

This a solid, friendly restaurant. The food is good, but not innovative - which is okay because we all have friends we have to take to dinner who are not super adventurous and this is where I would go with these guests. I don't mind an occasional chicken and waffles! Management is good and very supportive of community groups. Centrally... More

I had wanted to go to Luka’s Taproom for some time, following a favorable review on a local television program called Check Please Bay Area. It was a Wednesday night, and on Wednesdays you can order mussels (done in one of three ways) and frites for $12. Pairing this with a pre-6 PM arrival, it overlapped with their Monday through...

My wife and I were going to see Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds at the Paramount Theater. Luka's is one block away and really gets you ready for a show. Busy bar and restaurant vibe. This definitely speaks to the resurgent Oakland downtown. It advertises as French-Belgium fare. It seems more Southern. I had the Carolina Shrimp and Grits. Fantastic!... More

We hadn't eaten at Luka's in a couple of years so we returned for lunch on a Tuesday and immediately remembered why it's been two years - the noise level. Once the restaurant starts to fill up, the noise level rises to an intensity which makes it difficult to understand each other across the table. Since other reviewers mention this... More
