. A good restaurant near the newly renovated Fox Theater would be a jewel but this is not it. After two evening dinners we gave up. Here's an example from one. The Pan fried steelhead at $26.00 is about 3 inches square sitting on what is billed as a "potato puree" (about 2 tablespoons worth). This was accompanied by 8 brussel sprouts that were barely cooked. And we had to ask for bread which came in the form of a VERY good baquette. A white burgundy in a half filled glass at $12 each and an earlier well vodka at $9 made it a meal not worth the price. The service was at about the same level as the food.

This restaurant has had only a couple of reviews, all of them good. I found this place to be really good. Unigue and creative menu combined with great service. The bar is really beautiful and the overall atmosphere is great. I dined with several clients and we all agreed that this restaurant is a winner. I live far away but I will make an effort to come back and taste the rest of the menu.

Pros: Great Price/value

Cons: Parking

Although not the greatest and liveliest neighborhood, the quality and class of this restaurant more than makes up for that. 2 work colleagues and I went for dinner and drinks late in May, and the service, the food and the unique drinks were all top notch...easily rivaling anything across the bay. The open kitchen also shows a trust and confidence in the chef and staff...highly recommended. I didn't give it 5 stars cause I don't give almost anything 5 stars.

What a delight that we have another GREAT restaurant in Oakland. Every single person I came in contact with went over the top to make us feel welcome and provide excellent service. The host staff is AMAZING. It is such a rare combination to find a place that's cool (super hip environment), packed with people, AND everyone is nice! It really makes for an excellent experience. We had fantastic cocktails (great cocktail menu). Beet appie was out of this world. Fish is fresh and prepared perfectly. If you are looking for somewhere new to go, give this place a shot for sure.

Anyone seeking a hearty dose of retro hip need only head to Flora, where old-fashioned cocktails flow, bartenders sport suspenders and even the silverware features Art Deco accents. In what was once the Oakland Floral Depot building,…
