Chef Zafari brings his signature blends of Mediterranean flavor and California style to a more casual atmosphere. Maria prepares fresh house made flatbread daily, served with their signature chutney flavors of cilantro and roasted red pepper. The rotating menu takes advantage of the very best fresh, organic ingredients, sourced from independent farms and local farmers' markets. Their modern reinventions of traditional Afghan cuisine showcase those great flavors in ways that harmonize with those same local ingredients of the Bay Area.
We were celebrating my daughter-in-law’s birthday. I had given her a choice of three restaurants of what she picked Angela’s. It was a delightful time.
Service was great, food was awesome and drinks were amazing. Can’t wait to go back.
Always a great time and experience to hang out here, it was the “Duper Bowl” and a pretty good crowd considering, as usual we partied at the bar and Cody, the resident mixmaster took care of us superbly while owners Saboor and Mari whipped up some very exquisite versions of lamb that would impress anyone that likes that kind of protein. I love the Lime Chicken myself but it was a fantastic evening despite the boring game.....
Always a wonderful meal with delightful staff. And there is parking!
Fifth visit. Consistently good bistro with friendly service and hearty comfort food. Surprisingly quiet but it was a Tuesday night. The four of us enjoyed the onion soup, lime chicken and the special meat loaf and shared panna cotta for dessert. Will definitely return.
Love, love the lamb kabob! Perfectly cooked. Always a treat,
Wonderful lime chicken and rack of lamb! My husband loved the Manhattan. We both thought the service was outstanding!
Always great comfort food and service. Like to sit in the bar area and hang with Cody, the bartender who is a cool mixmaster. Owners’ Saboor and Mari provide outstanding hospitality for your stomach!
Our waiter was terrific. We ordered the shared hummus, eggplant and red pepper dip. The olives were good as was the bread.
The red pepper dip was inedible, neither of us found it at all pleasing. The hummus and eggplant totally lacked flavor. Both needed salt, garlic and lemon. Out lamb kebabs were delicious, well marinated and cooked perfectly. Dessert was also a problem. Bread pudding that we each took a bite of and had no interest in trying again, it shouldn’t be on the menu. The Panna cotta was absolutely fabulous, flavored lightly with rose water. Do a couple flavors of that and I’ll be there for dessert every day! I really wanted to like this restaurant, it’s close to home but the meal was so uneven. We were served two items that were just plain awful, that kind of knocks it off our list of go tos.
This is our favorite local spot, the food is always delicious and their bartender is fantastic (he makes the most amazing clear ice). Best table is the high top next to the kitchen to watch the chef work :)
The lamb and the steak were both amazing! Great flavor,cooked perfect. And the dessert...yummy. Will be back again. Love that it is upscale food in a casual setting. Perfect!!
We met for dinner on a Sunday evening around 6 pm. We had a reservation and were promptly seated. On this rainy evening, there were a few other parties dining that evening. Our waitress was fantastic being professional, friendly, and checking-in on us to see what we may need. The food was delicious. I had the spinach and leek raviolis which were savory and light. Next time I'll for sure try a cocktail as the bar menu looked great! Overall, I recommend Angela's if you're looking for Mediterranean inspired cooking!
Great food food!
The food is always good, and the cocktails are interesting and adventurous. Unfortunately, the restaurant service is hit or miss.
We enjoyed our New Year’s Eve gathering
with a table of 6! The waiter was pleasant
and attentive. There were 4 of us that were experiencing Angela’s for the first time!
We will be back again!
Food was fresh and delicious, and the service was superb. I'd like to see a better mocktail and dessert selection, then we'll be up to five stars.
The food and the service were impeccable. Just a nice
Meal with friends and family.
I had the scallops which was a special of the night and they were prepared perfectly with a saffron beurre blanc. The other diner had the chicken sausage linguine which is a generous portion.
Personalized service. I had my birthday there a year ago and they worked with me to provide a great experience for my guests. They still remember me and give great service. Sometimes could use another sever when it’s busy is all. Servers are all long term employees. Menu is pretty set. All options are fresh and well prepared.
Lime chicken was outstanding and so was, and always is, the duck appetizer wonderful. The devilled eggs could have used a bit more devil. And the persimmon crumble was a pure comfort food end to a delightful meal. Angela’s is our favorite go-to place when we aren’t craving Italian food.
this restaurant never dissappoints. the Aushak is fabulous as is the lime chicken, beef tenderloin and salmon. the bartender is very creative and skillful though i usually have the same drink.
A pleasant evening out with friends with good food. We found the food and the service to be very good. Two of us had the beet salad; chilled, dressed appropriately; nice mix of beets, greens, and cheese - very good. We also ordered a flat bread for the table and it was a nice addition with the salad - not to mushy, good flavor and texture. I had the lime chicken, which was quite wonderful; cooked well (i.e., not overcooked and dry), juicy, with the correct amount of potatoes and green beans; and it came to the table almost hot. My first companion raved about the short ribs - cooked perfectly and tasted great. My second companion had the lentil stew with rice. They did say it was OK. Limited selection of desserts; one companion had the chocolate mousse and judged it as good; the other companion had the panna cotta and thought it was so-so. I thought I'd have a cup of tea for dessert and they had no remaining English breakfast tea bags. How is that possible?? In any event, service was fine. The primary waitperson was pleasant, friendly, enthusiastic, informative, and very efficient. The interiors were acceptable and our table was sufficiently spaced from other diners so it turned out fine. The noise level varied from moderate to energetic, but we were able to converse most of time without yelling. Great friends, good/very food. Can't ask for much more. And, yes, I would return to Angela's.
Waited 1.5 hours for good after ordering
Angela's has never disappointed us. Seasonal fare, nice ambiance, great service and the owner is preparing your dinner in the open kitchen, fun to watch. The bar makes really great cocktails, very inventive bartender! The food is always delicious and I appreciate the changing for the season menu!
Whenever my brother drives up for a visit from Los Angeles, he always requests we go to Angela's for a nice dinner. As locals, we think it is one of the very best Alameda has to offer.
Another fabulous Saturday night at Angela’s with my entourage enjoying the bartending charms/skills of Cody and delightful cuisine of Owner’s Mari and Saboor. The Lamb Kabobs and Lamb Shank were exceptionally wonderful and the hospitality from the staff kicked off the holiday season to a great start!
Angela’s always exceeds our expectations!!!!! :-)
We have always had a good meal at angelas
Awesome awesome awesome
8 of us went to dinner 6 and never been there before they were absolutely impressed we had a wonderful dinner they made specialty cocktails for us at the end of the night as we left couldn't have had a better night food was fabulous
I always have a wonderful, delicious meal here. Love the lime chicken, salmon, aushak, great appetizers. Waiters are very attentive. Great bar and bartender. One of my favorite restaurants in Alameda.
Four of us dined here last weekend and found the service and food to be exceptional. The Lime Chicken was delicious. Looking forward to returning soon.
Waiter was too busy - so no quality time - felt rushed
One of THE BEST restaurants ever!! Fun! Flirty! Not too big. DELICIOUS food! Innovative drinks! I would HIGHLY recommend Angela's!! EXCELLENT! The best!!
Great steak and lime chicken. Cody the bartender is awesome. A great place to meet friends and hang out, Owners Sabor and Mari’s dishes are very flavorful and tasty, don’t need salt here!!
Staff was quite pleasant and the food was good. We went to celebrate a special occasion and the waiter was quite accommodating in chilling and corking the champagne for us. Everyone in our party was quite upbeat and happy.
Go To place in Alameda, just to unwind and sip a fancy cocktail creation courtesy of Cody, the perfect bartender. He stocks an outstanding collection of wine, beer and the good stuff. Saboor and Mari are fantastic owners, chefs and friends....and know how to entertain and take care of their customers. I could come here every night....
Food made with love authenticity and sophistication
A favorite neighborhood place, had the duck strudel of course and it was great. Had the sea scallop special and the were melt in your mouth tender, great dinner.
Sat at the bar on a Friday evening, it quickly became full, Cody the bartender performed his usual magic and snake oil, I felt no pain after a few Tito’s and Tonic plus one or two. Wonderful heirloom tomato salad and beef shiskebobs from owners Saboor and Mari in the kitchen. Like to see Sophia working the tables because she is very nice in many ways! Just love it here.......
