My daughter's beau recommended this place. He scored points with me. Menu is huge and diverse (pork jowls, lamb cheeks, etc) and the food is excellent. Waiter was typical snobby-gay but did tell us what he liked (made a note in case I was going to ask him out).The small plates are enough for an entrée - in fact when... More

The food and service were very good especially the beet salad and my favorite, the chicken milanese. It was cooked to perfection, crispy and delicious thanks to the lemon caper butter sauce. MY only complaint about the place is the noise level. I've eaten there often and at times you need to shout to be heard. Some acoustical tiles would... More

A very lively atmosphere and upbeat scene. The food is excellent and the bar serves up some interesting drinks. This is a great place for a group of 6-10.

Mua is a cavernous space on Broadway/Webster in Oakland's Auto Row. Once inside you feel transported to a youthful, fun spot where the liquor flows and groups of people are partying. The place is very noisy. Not ideal for intimate dining. However, the food is creative and delicious; best when several people eat together so you can share the varied... More

This place adds funky cool to an old auto repair shop. I love the menu because I order a selection of smaller plates to make up my meal. Cocktails are great. I prefer to sit outside in the good weather because the noise factor is high unless you go early or for lunch. You can make it as little or... More

If you are visiting Oakland and looking for a very urban, open, impressive space to have dinner in-- go to MUA. The food is delicious, great every time... I have gone here for many occasions. It's the space that is incredible. I love the art, which is done by one of the owners and the very, very high ceilings. The... More

Mua has a hipster vibe that is a great place for dinner and drinks. 12 usd cocktails and 7 usd beers, and around 18-23usd main courses. Food is simple and done well, nothing complicated here. I'd recommend these to people looking for a solid first date place. Steady talking upbeat music matched with a young energy all around.

I've been here a few times and have always had a great meal and a good time. This last visit I had the steak frites which surpassed my expectations. Mua has a great atmosphere and fun vibe with a good outdoor seating area. Note: the outdoor section is very casual (as in not serviced) so one must order at the... More

The atmosphere is awesome. Reconstructed warehouse, with a mezzanine where the DJ spins on weekends. The food is great! The "No cheese mac and cheese" is my favorite, don't knock it til you try it. We usually order a few small plates rather than an entrée. I make reservations just to be safe. The bar area on the way in... More
