Recommendations for birthday dinner in Oakland/Berkeley

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.

      Levende East, Maritime East- both new ventures with nice atmosphere and menus.

        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.

            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
