“Work in the are”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

A native of Oakland, I was delighted to see the reinvention of one of our most beautiful architectural locations. A perfect mixture of new and old, this part of Oakland features some magnificent dining (Tamarindo, Cosecha & Siam Bay among others) and is a must see for visitors.

“Great walk....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Visit the Belgium beer bar, around old town. The Indian food is out of this world. Would eat there everyday if we could.
