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.

            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.
