“A cut above the standard linch restaurants.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

At a lunch reunion with colleagues, this restaurant provided a special ambience in a downtown neighborhood containing otherwise mundane offerings. The menu is not unique, but what it does it does well. The host seemed disoriented when i arrived 10 minutes early even though our table was ready. The service was quick, maybe a little too fast. My beet salad and my colleagues' salmon sandwiches were delicious. The light-filled atrium was cheerful. I would return.

“Average food and service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Had a business lunch here with 3 others. The food was just ok. My ravioli was quite good, but the salads wth chicken that two of the others had were quite plain and not as good as they said they had been previously. There was a piece of plastic in one of them. Service was a bit disorganized, even though it was not busy. We had reserved a booth, and they gave us a table, even though the restaurant was not full. This place seems just ok.

The ambience is quite pleasant, especially on the patio.

“Upscale excellence in the heart of downtown Oakland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

Faz continues to offer great Mediterranean and Persian food, his restaurants continue to offer me great food and an excellent decor and atmosphere in which to enjoy, laugh and relax. Great chefs at the Oakland location with a variety of menu items and daily specials. Can't wait until my next visit to try the Koobideh Kabob. Yum

“Food was delicious and the service was great.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

The drinks are a little pricy and they took a long time to be served, this was mainly because it was a new restaurant and we assume new bar staff. The table staff were very friendly and the food was lovely
