The meal was only so-so; the cocktails were pretty good. The fried chicken was ok; I have had better. The salad entree was plain. The meatballs were not very interesting. My friend did say, however, that he enjoyed his brisket. The doughnuts with the sauce for dessert were very unexciting. And the service was very poor. None of my party... More

Best Fried Chicken I've tasted so far. But the Udon Lasagna is delicious as well. Great Dessert not only the presentation but the taste was exquisite! Would go back there again.

Truly the best fried chicken I have ever had. We went for their amazing brunch and the fried chicken and bisquits with gravy and eggs took the prize. However, the oysters looked amazing and the wasabi bloody's were perfect. I cannot wait to go back here when I'm in town again!

Different brunch menu - braised pork belly Benedict, smoked salmon and pork hash were great. But, the star was the buttermilk fried chicken & biscuit with pork sausage gravy! Really different cocktails. Wasabi Bloody Mary, Pimm's Cup and the very interesting Wagonwheel... try it!

Renowned Oakland restaurant, with terrific friend chicken, which is marinated in butter milk, while milk, Japanese mustard powder, and soy sauce. The chicken is so moist and the skin crispy and flavorful. Also loved the side of a brown butter sauce on smashed marble potatoes. And the oyster with Unami and salmon roe is perfection on a shell.

My friend and I went to Hopscotch today for lunch and I was pleasantly surprised. We had wonderful drinks. I ordered a wagonwheel, which was delicious. My friend ordered the burger and fries and I had the smoked salmon benedict. Both entrees were fantastic. The bartender/servers were very attentive and friendly. The prices were reasonable. We enjoyed ourselves. Hopscotch is... More

We went to this restaurant for both their happy hour and Sunday brunch. For the happy hour, we experienced great service and nice appetizers with at least one having a Japanese cuisine influence. For brunch, customers can be standing forever at the door to get a table without anyone on staff acknowledging their presence. (Catch a server to ask for... More

A very unique restaurant and cannot describe a particular style of cuisine We share fried green tomatoes and 2 other appetizers. My daughter an son in law share the fried chicken as the portion was that large and I had the clams in broth wth scallion pancake with turnips. Sounds strange but delicious Drinks were also unique.
