  • "Dinner for four delicious, other friends joined us for the music and cocktails. Good easy fun rock and dancing!!! Will definitely go again. P.S. Don't pass up the fried pickles...yummy!"

  • "Sadly, Monaghan's tries too hard and falls short. Baked brie contained barely a dab of brie buried in layers of less than elegant pastry, topped with chopped pistachios and apricot preserves, an overly sweet addition. Ordered the chicken sandwich from the bar menu--bread soggy, interior overfull with tastes that canceled each other out. Couldn't eat even on half of the sandwich. The fries were okay. My friend ate hers and said when she got home she had horrible heartburn. This is too bad. The location's great and they have a patio to which you are invited to bring your well-behaved dog. We'd make good use of it if--they had a wine list worth considering and palatable food. But their cook needs additional training or maybe a new cook."

  • "My husband and I went here for an early Valentine's dinner. We shared the Seafood Paella plate, which was small. I guess we thought there would be more variety. The food was good. The dining area was pretty small but cozy. Next time, we'll plan for a more laid back dinner instead of getting dressed up."

  • "Loved the food but it was very noisy so not good for visiting with a group. We were in the fireplace area, the other room could have been quieter. Want to come back to try other dishes!"

  • "We went for the first time on a Sunday night and there was no one in the dining room, only the bar. They had a great firepit inside as well as a good sized patio that would be nice for lunch or in warmer weather. The food was quite good and the server was friendly without being intrusive. We'd definitely go again."

  • "Don't miss Monaghan's on the Hill. It is a hidden Oakland gem! I met friends there for an evening of dinner and music. The overall dining and entertainment experience was more enjoyable than I'd expected. Monaghan's on the Hill was pleasant surprise. It is not to be missed!"

  • "Had some appetizers in the bar a month ago, OK for the Bar food, menu looked ok. Dinner in the dining room and very disappointed in the meal; Spinach salad was good, Salmon was OK nothing special. Shrimp Scampi was horrible, pasta over cooked and no flavor in the sauce (none). Stated on menu "Tiger Prawns" in white wine and garlic sauce, real small prawns?. May go back for appetizer but not a meal. Nice bar crowd, friendly. Stay away from the shrimp "prawns"."

  • "This place is a hidden gem in the Oakland hills. Very easy to get to. The food was outstanding. The staff was friendly and helpful. Parking can be tricky because of a lack of space. Prices were fair for the quantity and quality of food. Would definitely recommend."

  • "It was nice. Good food. Nice place. Just didn't stand out for me thought... Would I go again? Sure. It's conveniently located."

  • "Food was really good for the price (great value) and I love that we can order from bar menu anywhere, and combine it with regular dinner menu. Really cozy vibe, great server/service, and better than any restaurant in Montclair Village, where I live. I'll be back!"

  • "Nice find on the east side of the bay. Food was very good, we both enjoyed our meals. Menu value is excellent, most items under $20. with good portions. They also had a very vibrant bar with quite an appetizer or small plate list. This was our first visit, we will be going back. Monaghan's On The Hill appeared to be a local favorite, as the crowd was substantial for a Thursday evening."

  • "Not great, but ok patio for outdoor dining. Mainly went for the band Loose Blues and dancing and had dinner inside by window viewing band. Dancing is on small brick patio right in front of the band. Not a good surface for dancing and too small."
