The food was amazing, and the service was great. We went for brunch and it was incredibly loud. I know this is the trend for restaurants now, but it makes it difficult to have a conversation or to host anyone who is older who has hearing issues.

The food and ambiance are simply unmatched. Whenever we want to go out to eat, it's a no-brainer. Flora for the win, always!

This was a great find for us. The atmosphere is lively and old school. The cocktails are well balanced and very easy to drink. Each thing we ordered was filled with layers of complex flavors. Lastly, the service was outstanding. It's our new neighborhood gem.

Attractive room. Darkish with warm lighting and enjoyable presence of the city through the windows. Delightful server. Enjoyed the Transmogrifier cocktail - like a subtler and more interesting sidecar. Had the buttermilk fried chicken with brightly spicy coating and attractive and interesting vegetables. Spouse had a to-die-for NY steak. Pricey but tasty CA red. Will definitely come back

This was our second time at Flora and the service, food presentation, pace and overall vibe was as great as the first time. Only glitch maybe the fried chicken entree was a bit overthought. We’ll be back next chance we get!

We went for brunch on a Saturday. The beignets and house-made granola with vanilla yogurt were delicious. My partner got a burger with fries, and I can attest that the fries were tasty - crispy and salty just The way I like it. The service was great. The waitress checked on us just enough, and she did not rush us out the door when we lingered to converse. With all the many conversations going on it does get a little loud, so occasionally it felt like I had to shout a bit to be heard, but not so bad that I was terribly annoyed about it. All in all an excellent dining experience.

Too loud to hear conversation from dining companion across the table.
Food good but too pricey. Much more each time we eat there, pre-symphony.

I think we have given up on Flora.

This was our first time at Flora. We really enjoyed the food, the ambiance and the excellent service. There was only one complaint. The menu does not offer a large number of options. We were dining at about 8PM on a Saturday night. However, they were already out of the crab cakes from the modest list of appetizers and the chicken from the main course. If the menu were larger (i.e. more items) this would be less of a problem, but the lack of those two items was an issue for our party since it left relatively few choices. This may have been a one time problem, and we really did enjoy the restaurant, but I would hope that we would not experience this problem on future visits. And yes, in spite of this, we would definitely go back.

bar tender was great, fun. Beer selection sub par so had a sazarac, which was perfect. Great meal.

Great experience. Wonderful service. Even gave us a free dessert for my friends birthday.

Exceptional value for Oakland Restaurant Week dinner. For appetizers, I really enjoyed the persimmons in the brussel sprout appetizer & my husband's crab cakes were perfect. I liked my swordfish entree, but was jealous of my husband's 10 oz NY Strip Steak as it was a perfectly executed medium steak. Our prix fixe meals ended with our choice of desserts. Again, I was jealous of my husband's choice. Though my molten chocolate cake was tasty, the smooth caramel mixed with the salt & crunch of the pepitas was the perfect end to a wonderful date night.

Restaurant week offerings were FABULOUS—crab cakes floating in aioli with citrus and fennel and arugula! Swordfish and steak on point! Just a bit rushed to get out the door to our show...

I have been wanting to try the restaurant and took advantage of the fixed menu for restaurant week in Oakland. The choices on the fixed menu were wonderful and allowed us to truly see the variety of dishes that Flora offers. The cocktails were also terrific. We were not disappointed and would return for another visit.

Flora remembered my birthday and the hostess happily sat us at the best seats in the house after we were thirty minutes tardy. Thank you very much!
