This is a wonderful restaurant to sit outside and see the water. Even better is their food! They do a twist on the food and it's from several cuisines. The service is good and it's enjoyable for lunch and for dinner.

On a sunny day this is a super place to go with a group and enjoy the Oakland waterfront. We were 8 people and everyone enjoyed their dishes. Two are gluten free and had enough options to choose from - and the server was very...More
