A word from Oasis Grille
According to the Mercury News (2007), "The menu in the main restaurant is equally eclectic (compared to its wine lounge), with unusual dishes such as pumpkin borani, which features spicy peppers and garlic, and aushak, pasta filled with leek and cilantro and topped with garlic-yogurt sauce and sautéed ground beef, and simpler starters and entrees such as grilled salmon and beef, shrimp, lamb, and chicken kabobs. The owners have designed their menu to accommodate the palates of those who like spicier, more exotic dishes and those who prefer milder, well-prepared salads, vegetables, and grilled seafood and meat.” Come experience this treasure in Downtown Pleasanton in either the main dining room or our relaxing wine lounge.

    A popular spot on Friday night--our dining area in the bar area was noisy- next time we'll ask for a quieter area. Our meals were delicious--from the Sampler Platter to our entrees: Chicken & Koobideh Kabobs, Mediterranean pasta, stuffed Moroccan chicken--all excellent! Enjoyed a nice bottle of wine--good selections at reasonable prices. Definitely recommended!

    We love to go to downtown Pleasanton to try the different restaurants and this is one of our favorites. We have been here twice - service was outstanding and food so good both times! Borani and Pumpkin Bolani are out favorite appetizers. Our party of five ordered different entrees and we were all pleased with our selections (portions were very generous). There is ample outdoor dining but we have eaten inside both times due to chilly weather. I accidentally knocked my wine glass over and our waiter was at the table immediately cleaning up the mess as discreetly as possible. We will definitely be returning!

    Celebrated with a friend getting married for the first time (at 50 plus) and it was a perfect choice. Good food, nice dining and an energetic adult crowd. Our service could have been better, but the restaurant was quite busy on a very HOT night. Our food was wonderful and our friend enjoyed the evening immensely.

    Have had a few meals here, both lunch and dinner. Servers are always helpful in making a selection. They have some memorable dishes, such as the pumpkin biryani and oshuk; however, I wish they wouldn't be so heavy handed on the garlic sauce. It seems that garlic sauce overpours some of the delicate flavors.

    My husband and I had a perfect romantic delicious, tasty and healthy time in the patio surrounded by beautiful flowers. Drinks and food were excellent and the service couldn't be better. The weather was amazing so having the patio option was a plus. If you want it more formal, inside the restaurant is beautiful and more fancy. We live in San José but definitely will come back soon. Perfect for a romantic date and groups as well. We will bring some friends next time to share it !

    I love the food at this restaurant this was my second visit and I enjoyed it a lot but I thought the food I had was not as good as when I ate dinner here about a year ago. I think it was what I ordered. Our pumpkin appetizer was delicious. This is a real neighborhood gem. Try it when in Pleasanton.

    This was our first visit (we used a restaurant.com coupon) and we were extremely impressed. Their particular strength is their appetizer menu. I recommend making an entire meal of that. Our entrees were good (tabuli and the pesto pasta) but the appetizers, including the pumpkin with yogurt sauce, were heavenly! We sat under a big tree on the patio. It was a warm night. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars was the service. It was slow from the beginning to the end.

    We absolutely loved the Oasis Grille! The food was wonderful, starting from the delicious flat bread, to our beautifully presented Caprese starter, to the amazing filet mignon kabobs with the Cilantro Chutney, and the Oasis perfectly Grilled Salmon! And the Warm toffee nut cake dessert is as our waiter Dominic put it "A few seconds of heaven!" The ambience was just perfect, and the service outstanding. (Thank you Dominic for all your great suggestions) This was a last minute decision, and was exactly what my husband & I were looking for, so glad we chose to go here....

    Came here for a Saturday morning brunch to celebrate a birthday. Great service with excellent food reccomendations by our server Sierra. We all had an idea if what we wanted them after the waitress explained the specials. We all changed our minds on what we ordered based on Sierra's reccomendations. We all loved her choices. Great wine list, great food, and great service.

    The service was great. We had a group of seven and we ordered the hummus and mixed appetizers, which was very good. For the main course we order kebabs for the table to share - Chicken, Shrimp and Koobideh. The chicken was tender and juicy, and the shrimp was good. The Koobideh, unfortunately, was dry and a bit tough. The atmosphere was very good and contributes to lively discussions.

    Of course, pumpkin borani is the signature dish. Been to Oasis a number of times and they seem to "forget" you often there. You can be seated, then wait and wait for your water. Or be brought your appetizer, then the forget to bring your entree till you ask. Not always, but service is hit or miss.

    Had heard good things . . .can't imagine why! Expected quality food; found some dishes tasty but some pedestrian at best. Caesar salad was served with a bottled dressing and when I asked the waitress about it her answer was that this item was not one of their specialties. The rack of lamb (4 little chops) and lamb shank were okay but a weird presentation for the shank with the bone chopped into three sections. Hummus side was bland and needed lemon, garlic, tahini -- anything! Ordered two desserts, neither of which was good enough to waste calories on. Asked the waitress if there was a pastry chef or if the desserts were from an outside vendor, she said they were brought in. Certainly not worth another visit!

    We enjoyed the food, the service was excellent, but the noise level was way too noisy. We had to shout at each other to be heard. We are senior citizens and although we like lively...this was the noisiest restaurant we've ever been to. It was probably due to the lively bar scene...probably great for younger patrons.
