One big happy dining room, so don't expect a romantic dinner. The food, service and selection were nice and fairly priced. I will be going back.

Ignore the negative reviews. Took my son here on a Saturday night. Our pasta dishes were wonderful and the ambience was very pleasant. The setting on the water is hard to beat.

If not for the terrific company of high school friends gathered to celebrate our 40th reunion, the night would have been entirely disappointing. Great location but limited parking. On a hot autumn night, the ceiling fans were broke. Ugh! The bar doesn't make aperol spritz. Really? Limited wine selection. A totally mediocre dining experience. Good thing the company and the...

Nice view..polite wait staff. OK food, but needs updating...new carpets, paint etc. Would not return...it was empty except for 1 other person that came in as we were leaving.

Looking for lunch or dinner with a view? If you're not looking to splash out for something super spendy, and you're not looking for trendy, this is the spot for you! Food is fine, but nothing spectacular. Was surprised that the vegetable soup was homemade and actually vegetarian. Pasta was perfectly presentable. Mom had the mediterranean lamb burger and it...

I took my family here for a celebration because I remembered it fondly. I remembered what a great view it had and delicious food to boot...but how the great have fallen. The place needs a remodel badly. The decor is archaic and seems like a senior citizen dining hall. The food was very disappointing. Several of us ordered the filet... More

One of the most disappointing restaurants in Oakland. Great location overlooking the Bay just wasted by overpriced food and drink that is just average at best. Can't recommend.
