I went to the spectacular Ringling and Barnum Circus - great updated circus. The elephants have retired, thanks to the animal rights advocates who should be helping people instead. But, the majestic lions and tigers are still performing. But, back to the Oracle.... I drove here to find that parking was $40, yes Forty dollars for the circus. Greed. I... More

The arena is indeed a Very nace facility and the Warriors game was a thriller. it is accesible vía BART. When we went not all concesions were open and the ones that were oponed had ovprized food.

I watched a nba match here. The atmosphere was electrifying. I got my tkts from ticketmaster as well you can get them at stub hub. For a decent seat it will cost $250 US +.The stadium is about 15 minutes on a train from union square. I would suggest to get there early because it gets very busy 2 hours... More

They have taken care of the arena over the years and kept it up but the group that takes care of the concessions needs to be better staffed during really big events. The wait to get food and drink was about 35-40 minutes which is not good at all.

I was fortunate enough to watch a NBA game with Golden State Warriors. My second NBA game live after one in Chicago 15 years ago. Atmosphere was sensational. Crowded of course but it was really fun.

Hard to complain about this place. One of the best Finals game in recent history. Was also here last year. Warriors fans enthusiastic and nice. Venue is old but..well...it's old and they are building a new one. The corridors smell like garlic fries...haven't tried them in 3 games I've seen here but it's tempting. I went with the bahn mi...nice... More

I have been hear for basketball games, concerts and ice events. We always have a great time. parking can be a little shaky. Great venue to watch an event. One thing that bothers me is that they don't sell chocolate in the concession stands. Everything else is pretty standard.

This place is kind of a dump. The food choices on the upper levels are a joke. 12 bucks for a hot dog, 15 for some tasteless wings that I would eat again if I was starving on a deserted island. Prices are too out of touch for the everyday working joe. I will not be back
