We've been meaning to try this spot for a while, so I chose it for my birthday dinner. The food was exceptional - each person was happy with their choice. Mine, pork shoulder confit, was so tender, it didn't need a knife. Also, the artichoke soup was the best. Although we didn't specify it was a birthday dinner, they gave... More

A group of 6 ate dinner here last night. I called and told the restaurant we were celebrating a birthday and they had personalized 'Happy Birthday' signs on the table when we got there and also gave the BD boy a complementary dessert. Nice touch. I thought my dish (a steak) was cooked perfectly and was tender and delicious. Everyone... More

Went with locals and was very impressed. Very retro cool place, a little noisy, but still fun. Great cocktails and excellent heirloom salad and pork shoulder - other entrees look just as good.

Flora is one of those places that keeps showing up not only on Oakland's "must go to" places, but on everyone's "Top Five". Five stars are for places that should be on your short list if or if this is highly recommended by friends. Service is always good and consistent here. Servers are attentive and the food was served quickly.... More

After trying for many years to make my Sunday schedule work for brunch at Flora--upon recommendation from many reviews and close friends, I finally made it in to the gorgeous dining room a couple weeks ago. We didn't make a reservation, but at almost 2 PM we didn't mind waiting a while. The hostess greeted us with and up and... More

Had dinner here before a show at the Fox Theater, across the street. I found the menu limited, the food okay, and the prices high. There is a big noise factor here as well. I would spend my fine-dining dollars elsewhere.

The only reason we ate here is because we had tickets for a concert at the Fox Theatre right across the street – very convenient. This is a medium sized restaurant with a full bar and questionable menu. Fortunately they have a web site so you can be prepared for what to order in advance. Somewhere I read that this... More

My friend took me to Flora for a girl's night dinner, but this place is perfect for just about any group. Business, couples, romantic, friends, what have you. The vibe in the place is almost Gatsby meets Cigar bar, without being pretentious or stuffy! Their Caramel Pudding is definitely a must. I've had dreams of it since!

We stopped here based off of Yelp reviews and we were pleasantly surprised. The place feels very trendy and cool. The food was great and the service was awesome. It is a medium sized place wit a full bar. We were there on a Saturday so parking was easy, not sure how it would be during the week. It is... More
