I have eaten here at least monthly for several months and found the food and service to be great. The burgers are great and happy hour drinks are a plus. I highly recommend this place if in downtown Oakland. It is close to Bart and Paramount Theater.

Luka's taproom has been opened in 2004 and definitely has a steady clientele. We came here for lunch on a rainy Saturday and they were able to accommodate us. Service was good, the ambiance is California brasserie, and the food is average. I like that they offer a vegetarian burger and you can opt for a gluten free bun. The... More

We had a surprise birthday dinner there and it was a Tuesday night and it was half price burger night so 4 out of 5 of us ordered a burger! I ordered a burger and it was good and a ginger beer. They no longer make it from scratch

The menu is eclectic and our party of four ordered quite a variety: each dish got rave reviews. The food was surprisingly good for a place with such a casual atmosphere. Definitely worth a repeat visit ... or two.

Nice and chill place that we used for a birthday get together. The place seems to be a mix between a pub, a bistro and a night club restaurant... And it's pretty well made! First room is the pub /bistro, dark and noisy, fortunately we go straight to back, straight to the pool table with hips of room and tables... More

I had been to Luka's for weekday lunch but never for brunch. The place is known for its fried chicken wings, but there are plenty of other interesting options on the menu. My friend and I could not resist ordering the Green Tomato Benedict: two English muffin halves, each with strips of chiles and slices of avocado, topped with a... More

This is for the weekend brunch as the fried chicken wings are only available on the weekends. We came here after our exercise class and wanted to share something so we ordered the fried chicken and eggs with a side of bacon. It came with 3 delicious and crispy chicken wings, a large portion of lumpy but tasty grits, a... More

This a solid, friendly restaurant. The food is good, but not innovative - which is okay because we all have friends we have to take to dinner who are not super adventurous and this is where I would go with these guests. I don't mind an occasional chicken and waffles! Management is good and very supportive of community groups. Centrally... More
