We tried salmon, lamb with garbanzo beans sauce and grits with spicy savory sauce. All 3 dishes had excellent flavors. Great to share. Wine list did not match the food,which was disappointing . Did not care for Mac and cheese balls. Too starchy.

I made reservations for a birthday lunch and it was $1 oyster Monday but we didn't order the oysters. We ordered a beet and apple salad and french fries, catfish poor boy sandwich, ahi tuna salad, fried chicken salad and shrimp louie salad. The birthday girl enjoyed her ahi tuna salad and everyone else seemed to enjoy their food. However,... More

We came here on our last visit 4 years ago and had to come back. The service was great for a busy Monday night but it is loud in there. We had the clam chowder and shared the Mac n' cheese. The chowder is better than anything you can get over in San Francisco. The Mac'n cheese was to die... More

I have never had a problem with service and enjoy the atmosphere, they have tvs with the current games on which is fun after work... More

This was such a cute place. The atmosphere is chill but has an exciting night life vibe. There was a dj spinning some soul music and house that kept the energy up as well. I got the catfish with kale and fries. IT was delish and my friends enjoyed their meals as well. Also the staff was nice and had... More

Luka's is definitely LOCAL. Luka's is definitely OAKLAND. For that, I like it and respect it. Before the Uptown area of Oakland started to be redeveloped (when I moved to Oakland, there was no such thing as "Uptown" Oakland) -- before Ozumo, before Mua, before Z-bar, before Plum -- there was only Luka. It's an Oakland institution. The food is... More

I work in downtown Oakland and USED to frequent this spot weekly, early on a couple times a week. Solid food: great burger you can actually order & get medium rare, best fries in Uptown, Oyster Mondays, changing creative specials & soups, even a cheese plate for when you're feeling "fu-fu". Solid cocktails: Fairly wide range of spirits, signatures that... More

It took an hour and a half to get a burger, but they did comp my drinks. The burger was good, but by the time I got it I was too old to be able to chew normal food.
