#1 Restaurant in Oakland

Incredible! Best restaurant in the East Bay. Service is exceptional, food and wine are amazing. Very difficult to get a table on Fri and Sat nights - call a week+ in advance or drop in to potentially get a seat at the bar. A SF quality dining experience in the East Bay.\r Don't waste time reading doghairnancy's comment below. Doghair - Berkeley has plenty of vegetarian places that allow you to sip on your Wheat Gra... view more

Wonderful new eatery in Rockridge!

This place is fantastic! A wonderful, cozy, delicious little hide-away! Be warned though, make a reservation WELL in advance because they only have 12 tables and a small bar area. Despite the size, they do a fantastic job of not making one feel cramped like a sardine. I've been twice and both times the overall experience has been great! GREAT food, GREAT service, SUPER GREAT wine list. Definately a must, the onl... view more

Vegetarians, take your business elsewhere.

I'm speaking from the standpoint of a fairly typical Berkeleyite who expects a good vegetarian entree option at every restaurant in our enlightened area. I took 5 friends, several of whom try to be vegetarian, to dinner last night at Wood Tavern and there was not one single vegetarian entree on the menu. The fish was wrapped in pancetta, the rigatoni was bathed in lamb sugo...The waitress very unhelpfully suggested t... view more

Best New East Bay Restaurant

Lucky for us we read about Wood Tavern and ate there 3 times (lunch) while on vacation. The service, food and presentation of the food plus the wonderful decor of the restaurant means we will return again and again. It is one of the most satisfying new dining experiences we have encountered.

Best East Bay neighborhood bistro

We took my Mom for an early dinner, 5:30 on a Monday night. We got a great table for 4, settled in for a cocktail, and watched the masses pour through the door. The restaurant was half empty when we arrived, but was packed within the next 20 minutes. I knew right away it was going to be good. One look at the menu variety and ingredients said we had made the right choice. Our first courses consisted of the Pork B... view more

Must have caught them on a bad night

I'd heard a lot of good things about this place, so we gave it a try. We were seated promptly, but the service went downhill from there. The food took a really really long time to arrive. When we were finished, it took at least 15 minutes for the food to be cleared. We wanted dessert, but were hesitant. we decided to order anyway. The time it took to WAIT for them to take our dessert order, then to WAIT for the... view more

Great Neighborhood Addition

We have gone several times - and without reservations, you'll most likely wait for a table (and even the bar fills up early)....and the reason is both the food and the service. Preparation and presentation are always top notch. Previous reviewers captured the sentiment - but we echo everything that's been stated and highly recommend. We were fans of the owners when they had their place in the city on Hyde street...

Great California Cuisine in Rockridge!

A friend and I arrived on a Friday evening and got the last two spots at the counter. Note-to-Self: make reservations for next visit. All the staff were friendly, courteous, attentive, and professional. The ambience was urban-sophisticated, yet casual; a place where you could feel comfortable wearing jeans or slacks. Each dish was flavorful, well-prepared (right in front of us), and aesthetically pleasing. We st... view more

Great new addition to Rockridge

we were greeted immediately by a friendly face and were seated immediately. the owner was the first at our table and humbly made some great recommendations. we started with a mint julip and a dark and stormy cocktail, first rate, and then ordered the tapas like appetizer and cheese plate, amazing flavors to start off the night. The four of us split the chopped salad and the refreshing and spring-like asparagus and a... view more

Best Well Balanced, DELICIOUS foods!!

A must! This restaurant is VERY good...from the appetizer - amazing salads to the amazing crab salad and tasty burger. If you are in this area you must stop by the bar and try an appetizer or entree. You will be very happy and leave feeling healthy! A nice stop on the way to Berkeley from SF.
