Recommendations for birthday dinner in Oakland/Berkeley

  • 6

I am looking for a recommendation for a birthday dinner in Oakland or Berkeley. Was looking to go to Pizzaiola (sp) but dinner is on a Sunday, and Pizzaiola is closed on Sunday evenings. Thanks.

  1. A Cote in Rockridge - small plates style, great bar, casual atmosphere
    Wood Tavern - Rockridge - might be difficult to find a reservation but the food is great
    Oliveto - if you want to step it up a bit

            Maritime East is nice. Atmosphere is pretty similar to when it was Zax and Mazzini.

            I poked my head in Levende East and the atmosphere was more bar / lounge than restaurant. Anyway it's closed on Sundays.
