    Fentons Creamery & Restaurant

    I was just here a couple of weeks ago with one of my old best friends from when I used to live and there and it brought back so many memories. We used to go there all the time for the delicious banana splits. Apart from their banana splits they have a great variety of ice cream, from rocky road ...

    Homeroom

    4.5
    15 reviews

    My experience with Homeroom has so far been limited to 2 take-out mac and cheese orders initiated by my Son's Grandmother on our behalf when we've come to visit. Both times have been a huge hit and with plenty of leftovers to take home. My Son is especially partial to the Smokey Bacon Mac, while I'll basically eat any Comfort ...

    Cactus Taqueria

    3.5
    3 reviews

    This Cactus Taqueria is every bit as good as its Berkeley Brother (or should I say Solano Sister?). Their chicken quesadilla (with salsa) is how I like it, and it's even better with fresh chips and a good draft beer to wash it down. I also think that queue control, speed, parking, and interior room is better here too. The ...

    Farley's East

    5
    2 reviews

    I recently stopped into Farley's East before the Yelp Elite event next door at the Era Art Bar and Lounge. I was about 45 minutes early and was too impatient for the crowd at Luka's and too too hungry to wait for whatever free nibbles and libations awaited me inside the party. I also found out that Farley's was one ...

    Wood Tavern

    4.5
    8 reviews

    Early dinner at Wood Tavern was the best way to go if you did not have a reservation. Was seated right away and we got straight to ordering our dinner entree. We got the duck breast and halibut. All tasted great but I wouldn't not say it is something memorable. Although the portion was just about right. Wish their entree ...

    Baja Taqueria

    4
    5 reviews

    The best thing to order here is there fish tacos. Crunchy fried fish with some pico de gallo, shredded cabbage, and salsa sauce is all you need. They have a full salsa bar so you can load your food with toppings. Love the spacious space in the back. Will come back for those tasty fish tacos.

    Lush Gelato

    4
    2 reviews

    When you have the Mother of all Ice Cream parlors just down the street with Fenton's and their humongous Sundaes, you have to do something a little different to sell a cool dessert on Piedmont Avenue. So why not Gelato? Rich and creamy, and in little portions. Lush has between 6 to a dozen flavors, most of them very unique, ...

    Barney's Gourmet Hamburgers

    4
    2 reviews

    Me, Gayle, and the Kid met his Grandmother at Barney's yesterday for a very pleasant lunch on the back outdoor patio. Barney's Solano is my Son's favorite stop, but this location was closer for the sake of our guest. This outpost is also a lot roomier and a bit more modern looking than our usual Greater Albany hangout. My Son ...

    Boot and Shoe Service Restaurant

    5 reviews

    Gayle and I met our friends Robyn and Ernesto for a walk around Lake Merritt yesterday. We started at Children's Fairyland at around 11 AM and walked counter clockwise. We passed the big tree that fell next to the Park Chalet and ended up at Grand/Lakeshore/Farmer's Market Nexus in time for Lunch at Boot & Shoe Service. This place has ...

    Neecha Thai

    2 reviews

    I wanted to see Toy Story 3 (in 3D) and thought that the Grand Lake would be a cool Theater choice. Maybe my son thinks that he's too old for animation or toys, as I basically had to bribe him with a trip to Target first. However, instant gratification wears out quickly, and by the time we had parked the ...

    2 reviews

    This was a place that a friend had heard good things about. Consequently we decided to go and grub a bit... As we are walking there, after parking, lo and behold we walk by some other Chinese joint that is completely empty. Literally they have their own parking lot and not a single soul in the restaurant and parking is ...

    Everett & Jones BBQ - Jack London Square

    4.5
    7 reviews

    My favorite BBQ place in the Bay Area. There are actually several Everett and Jones food stalls/BBQ shacks around the Bay Area, but I believe this is the only restaurant. You have to come here for the baby back ribs. It's best thing on the menu, IMO. Get a group of friends and get the two full rack of ribs. ...

    Pho Hoa Lao Restaurant

    2 reviews

    I will stake my yelp career on this. The Best Pho Place Ever! (or until I'm proven wrong). I'm tired of hearing that Westminster has great pho it is a lie. Here are my requirements for The Best Pho ever: 1. "Super Bowl" the pho must have this name. If it shares a name with the biggest sporting event, the ...

    22 reviews

    I have had the chicken sandwiches several times now and have enjoyed them each time. The 3 types of scones that I have tried have also been very good. No Pot Pie yet though. This afternoon was also my lucky day. Not only did I get 2 free cookies (ginger bread and chocolate chip), they threw in a small tray ...

    We stopped in for lunch after shopping at nearby California Canoe & Kayak after Tammy at CCK recommended the place. It was nice weather so we were able to sit outside and enjoy the views of the water and watch the visitors to Jack London Square walking by. I had the shrimp pozole. The shrimp were perfectly cooked and the ...

    They have the most adorable looking and tasty desserts. I run by here and often contemplate stopping for a treat.

    A nice small restaurant with enough food to fill large groups. The Szechuan beef noodle soup was so tasty and spicy! I'm looking forward to coming back and trying more of their popular dishes.

    Bowl'd BBQ Korean Stone Grill

    4
    2 reviews

    Their fried chicken is insanely good. I think it is better than anything we have in south bay. Places like Bonchon or 99 Chicken are no competition. San Tung or SO in the city, could still put up a good fight. Every piece is encased in a slightly thick but perfectly crisp and crunchy batter. It was almost as if ...

    Rudy's Can't Fail Cafe

    3.5
    3 reviews

    I was brought here by my two Oakland friends who enjoyed Rudy's in E'ville. They said that this Oakland branch was even better, more downhome. I enjoyed my veggie burger, the ambience, my friends, the easy street parking, and the display of dolls on the back wall. I'm always happy to see a new cafe pop up in Downtown Oakland. ...
