“Farmers Market”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

on Sundays (especially on a sunny day) is a delight here. Add in some great shops (try Baia pasta, for example) and great restaurants (Haven, Bocanova and more) for evening time and you have a winner along the Oakland estuary. Check to see if there is a special event too (the "Eat Real Festival" for example or the lighted boat parade during Xmas time.

“On the water”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

It was busier, from what I can recall. It us a nice place to lounge and have a meal. It isn't Oakland's prime destination spot, but it is a stop. There is a free shuttle bus that'll carry along broadway and down to the square.

“Don't go”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

Nothing to do there. Most stores are closed or don't exist. No where to park free. I liked the weather. I disliked the stores

“Old boardwalk that made for a nice evening!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

This is an old boardwalk along the bay that has docks and many restaurants to choose from. It felt safe given that you are in downtown oakland and the area was kept up pretty nice. We visited at night at didn't get any of the views.
