There is always a wait and I am not sure it is really worth it. This is why we hadn't been in a long time. But were given gift certificate, so we tried it again.The food is good, the selection is okay, I am not totally sure about the appeal to have to wait so long for a table -... More

I met colleagues for a business lunch on a Sunday (sad, I know). They don't take reservations and we had to wait over an hour even though they said it would be 15-30 minutes. I will say that the food was delicious and the portions were ample. I had the Oakland Grill omelet with chicken apple sausage, mushrooms, spinach and... More

I had not eaten here in years -- many, many years -- so decided to give it a try with my son. I had no real memories of the restaurant other than the booths were uncomfortable, which they are still. Rough wood, backs at an angle that no one sits. But that would be forgiven if the food were good.... More

Came here with friends yesterday for lunch after a long absence. It was crowded but we got seated right away. Service was prompt and we ordered chicken with black beans, Chicken Montecarlo, Colorado omelet and a turkey club with minestrone soup! The portions were flavorful and hearty! Prices are reasonable for what you order.

This is a great find if you want a delicious breakfast! It's a no frills type of place but the food is great. Make sure you get there early because the line will get long however it's worth the wait.

We drove through Oakland on our way to Yosemite. This was a great place to get some food fuel in for the journey. A tasty breakfast was just what we needed and that's exactly what we got here!!

Good atmosphere and wide selection on the menu. Had the waffles which were very good. All our group of 6 enjoyed their meals. Good service but go early to avoid the wait.

We were here 24 years ago the first time on our first anniversary. We are back today celebrating our 25th. The place hasn't changed. You wouldn't expect to find a jewel like this in the heart of a produce district, but it's been here for a long time and is still one of THE BEST places to come for breakfast... More

I enjoyed a fantastic crab omelette, packed with Dungeness crab. For the same price I also could have had a ten ounce steak and eggs! Huge portions, reasonable prices (Oakland, right?) and great service. Really interesting warehouse space with three levels of dining, which means no one is waiting very long. We had a view of the kitchen where they... More

Oakland Grill is popular neighborhood hangout tucked in among Oakland Produce District warehouses and just a short walk from Jack London Square. On weekends at brunch time you're likely to have a 20-30 minute wait for a table, but it's worth it. They serve a variety of breakfast and lunch dishes. I'm a habitual eater of their Benedict dishes with... More
