I was disappointed with everything I had at Lungomare. The first cocktail was bad - tasted like cough syrup. The second one was better but more 'creative' than delicious. Both my appetizer and entree were poorly cooked and far from delicious. I topped it off with a disappointing dessert wine, but that was my choice so not their fault fully. This place has a nice view. Service was pleasant though inefficient. The food is mediocre and the a bad value for the price.

Great restaurant and would recommend for anyone with a great meal. Think we caught them on a night where they were short-staffed and had to wait quite awhile to order food. Nice, polite staff. Great views and food.

Our server was on it at the beginning, lively and entertaining but then he just turned off midway. Took forever for our cocktails, water, the bill etc. it didn’t seem that busy either, as it was pretty quiet.

The spaghetti Bolognese was excellent as was the salad with beets and hazel nuts. Best pasta I've had in a year. Rodrigo, our waiter, was excellent as were the other staff and hostess. I will go back for the Bolognese.

Went for Easter brunch which was fine. The on-line menu listed rabbit as one of the options but it was not available. The food was good, nothing amazing and as I said, one of the dishes I was looking forward to was unavailable. I like the choices, not so many that it was overwhelming. It was a beautiful day, the restaurant is very nice, the company was good so I would definitely go back.

There on Easter Sunday. Regular menu not available, WITH NO PRIOR WARNING ON EITHER THE RESTAURANT WEB SITE, NOR OPEN TABLE’s. Buffet instead, $60. With all restaurants in the vicinity fully booked, our party of 6 had no choice but to have lunch at Lungomare.
The buffet choices (brunch, allegedly), were very limited, but more importantly everything had an off-taste, roasted potatoes, scrambled eggs and pasta alike. No bread was available, neither at the table nor the buffet. A truly horrible experience. I hate to be judgmental, but in this instance I will not hesitate to say that this restaurant was TOTALLY DISHONEST with their offering and execution.

We went for Easter Brunch. Very expensive which we knew going in, but for the price the food was disappointing. At $65 per person we thought there would be dessert and better selection of buffet items. No dessert at all and no carving station either. Omelet bar was good . Service passable but slow.

For us, the special view of the harbor was the hit of our meal. We had front row seats to the Hawaiian Chieftain and The Lady Washington, two tall replica sailing ships, sailing in and out again to port, as well as a smaller sailing boat regatta underway. Tasty chopped salad and bagel with lox and the fixings were our light brunch meal. Service was excellent. I will definitely eat here again.

We have been to Lungomare several times. We went on a Sunday, which we haven't done before. They have a great deal "Wine Down Sunday" - $30 for appetizer, entree, and dessert PLUS endless wine. The wine was a choice of 4, two reds, two whites and they were decent, drinkable wines. The food was fabulous!

We enjoyed the view and the food was tasty and prepared competently. We picked the restaurant for lunch because it was convenient for East Bay and Marin friends as well as convenient public parking.

The server was efficient (almost too efficient) and the food was good enough that I would go back. Looks like a good place to go if you have a larger group as well.

Lungomare is reliably excellent. Been there many times and have consistently appreciated the quality and the value, especially the Sunday Winedown prix fixe dinner - best deal in town!

Must have the mushroom pizza. MUST have it. Advice: get a window table and enjoy Oakland's fabulous waterfront and the people walking along it. Seafood dishes here are always good. Cautionary tale: do not have the Irish Coffee. It is made with their own house-made version of Bailey's Cream and, of course, there is no such thing so it did not work.

I want to go to Lungomare more often! The food always surprises me -- I expect it to be good, and it's better than that! I had a really tasty arugula salad and a pesto pasta dish that was very good. My friends both had the salad with a tuna steak and were very happy. And JLS is always interesting if you've got time to stroll.

Great food and wine at a very reasonable price.
Very, very noisy! I had difficulty hearing my dinner companion.
Wait staff is inexperienced and/or not properly trained. No bread plates came with our bread basked and olive oil/vinegar dipping sauce. Very messy. We ordered the Prix Fixe and after the appetizer, the waiter asked me to keep my knife and fork for the next course. After our main course a wait staff member came to us with two deserts. We told him that we had not yet ordered desert yet and he said, "Well, do you want these?".

I will go back for the food but I will arrive early to avoid the noisy crowd.

Pleasant setting, enjoyable food. We were meeting with old friends and wanted to just talk for quite awhile before ordering food and there was no problem from the staff about that. Noise level is moderate so you can actually talk to people!

We always have a good time at Lungomare. The menu was very tasty on Valentine's Day . We love to have a cocktail at the bar where Felix, our favorite bartender, knows exactly what we like and makes us great drinks.

We arrived 10 minutes early and were told that we had to wait at the bar. We figured that since it was Valentine’s Day, no tables were available. 15 minutes later we were seated and were surprised to find the restaurant half empty. Why were not we seated sooner. The menu was reduced to a Valentine’s Day menu with very little choices. The waitress was helpful in finding in finding something acceptable on the menu. However the pork dish she helped us to select was very fatty and the polenta that was to accompany it was non existent. Overall all an okay experience, but we will look for another restaurant next time.

Not quite there. Asked for a robust Italian wine and was pointed to Italian grapes grown in Napa - instead sampled the Italian chianti and a barbera, both were disappointing as was my wife's California Cab. We were asked if anchovies on the salad were ok, said yes, but found the flavor too strong. The calamari appetizer was fishy and we decided not to eat it. The prosciutto small plate was of the quality you get from a package at safeway and the radicchio was a bit overwhelming in its bitterness and quantity. Best plate was a sausage with a risotto of bulgar wheat - but you have to like butter.

Service was just fine, view is very nice overlooking the estuary. Overall made me miss Boca Nova.

Went for brunch, French toast seemed like it had not been dipped in egg, only warmed on grill. Food was not hot and somewhat bland. Salad dressing on chopped salad tasted like vinegar only. However service was quick to accommodate which was appreciated.

Good food and great service. Went for restaurant week and was able to make same day reservation. waited for maybe 15 minutes before getting seated. After a few minutes, our server right away asked if we were ordering the prix fixe menu and then said red or white. She did nor rush us to order. I started with the fried cardoons which were okay but I ordered since it was an unusual ingredient. The meatballs were fantastic! Light and not dense
