Pucquio is the best restaurant in Oakland. The food is impeccable, every single time -- from the ceviche to the main courses. The presentation and food quality are always outstanding -- with flavors you honestly wish you could just keep eating! The service is always great - small restaurant, with just a handful of tables and a very attentive staff. We LOVE this restaurant! More

Right or wrong, I was disappointed that the restaurant was in a hotel -my husband and I were looking for a good local restaurant before we headed to a show at the Fox. Not the mandatory restaurant a hotel should have... But we stayed and ate as we were then pressed for time and we were really glad that we did. We ate at the bar and the bartender treated us like the "local" restaurant we were hoping to attend. GREAT food, creative menu, great service and fun location after all. More

Greek | Oakland, East Bay

Ikaros Greek Restaurant brings traditional cuisine straight from the island of Ikaria. This family style eatery features fresh menu items that are made daily from scratch. The combination of this dedication to delicious Greek food and the cozy interior are two of the main reasons Ikaros Greek Restaurant is so beloved in Oakland.

At Ikaros Greek Restaurant, the Oktopodi Sti Skara comes highly recommended; it’s octopus cooked over the grill and served chilled with a splash of balsamic vinaigrette. There are also more casual offerings like the chicken gyro sandwich, the lamb souvlakia, pork souvlakia and a bifteki platter featuring ground meats, steak fries and more.
