Always good, but very expensive. Fortunately at A16 you do get what you pay for.
My husband and I just celebrated our anniversary at A16. The staff was very thoughtful and made our dinner very special. It was a very enjoyable meal, the pizza was gorgeous, the drinks and afters were delightful. I can't wait to go back!
Delicious food in bright atmosphere!
Took 30 minutes to get our wine. Food arrived before drinks. Burrata boring and served with poor crackers. Will never dine here again.
Fantastic place to meet and eat great food and sip great wine. Recommend the Newton Cab.
They must have had an off night because our food wasn't veery good. We normally love this place.
I haven't had service this bad in a long while. Our unfriendly waiter dropped off the wine and was never to be seen again. No question if we need anything else or if we were happy with our food. Nothing! I wanted to order more but couldn't find a waiter. Our water glasses were empty for at least 30 min before we received more (after asking the bus boy). At some point someone else waited on us but the experience of our main waiter was so off putting that I really couldn't enjoy the rest of our dinner. I will not come back to this place. A16 in SF probably yes but not in Oakland.
While the food was very good and the service was excellent, our experience was spoiled by very loud and noisy customers at the nearby tables. I guess no one ever taught the millennials how to behave in public!
The food was very disappointing. The salad was swimming in dressing, disguising the lovely little gems and the bucatini pasta was dry and tasteless. I actually sent it back, which I never do. The pizza dough was undercooked and the toping was a mush. I'm sorry it didn't work out.
Great atmosphere with friendly and knowledgeable staff; we received great wine recommendations and got to try an Italian red that we don't know anything about, yum!
For our anniversary and A16 treated us well with great service class and style. The food and wines were excellent as always.
Food was bland, overpriced and expensive. Would not go back and not recommend
Meatball Monday is the best!! Plus the Funghi pizza. Wash it down with a bottle of Pietradolce from Sicily and it’s a wrap!
I am 100% born and raised in Italy, so I know exactly how a good pasta tastes and feels like.
The pasta I had at A16 was way below expectations: the sauce was very dry, difficult to swallow without the help of some water/wine, and flavourless.
The place is nice and the service is good too, too bad the food is below par and prices are high too.
As a comparison, "Il Casaro" in SF and "Lucia's" in Berkeley offer much better food at a lower price.
Perfect night, Johanna was superior as well as the young man that was helping her.
Always solid. Kept waiting for 15 mins but they provided a glass for each of us. Fair enough.
I went to A16 on Monday, 8/19 for my wives birthday. Food was great, but the service was absolutely terrible. I actually saw a couple seated down from us two tables down get up and leave as no one came to take their order for over 20 minutes. Our service was not much better.
Overall it felt like we were there for rookie night.
I love this spot. We were seated on time and the food was great. The server gave me a great recommendation on wine and it went great with my food. My colleague loved his steak and I loved my salmon. Great spot. I love their restaurant in San Francisco too.
I love A16. The pizza is amazing, the servers are great and they have so many spectacular menu options, everyone in your party will be happy.
I don't often write reviews because I get bombarded with requests. Our dinner at A16 Rockridge was off the charts amazing. The service provided to us by Jeffrey was just spectacular. He knew exactly what we needed and his intuition is rare anymore. The meal was also outstanding as usual! We have been to both locations several times! This was a special occasion and you guys made it special. Thank you!
Fantastic food. It was busy so the drinks and appetizers were a bit delayed at times but nothing unreasonable.
Not worth the Hype, visiting from So Cal and always found the food in Berkeley to be great not so much for this place, food so so, service not much better. We will not be returning.
They may have had an unexpectedly busy night because it seemed like they were slightly short-staffed, but the overall experience was still very good. The food was excellent, however, and we would come back.
Emma was the best, taking care of us tonight. Simply the best!
Our server was wonderful. Made triple sure my menu selection was gluten free (I have Celiac Disease). Very attentive but not intrusive and very upbeat.
Good food. Nice atmosphere. Good service
The food was pretty good, the room was lovely (although the art buyer could use some help). The service was oh-so-PAINFULLY-plodding...we were seated for 40 minutes before we got our drinks; we had to ask for bread (although other tables who were seated after us got their bread almost immediately, not to mention that they got served their entrees before we did). Oh, good lord, we thought.... But at least the food was pretty good.
Very authentic Italian, five of us ordered just about everything on the menu, first enjoyed a bottle of California Kutch Pinot Noir, then Jess the bartender recommended a Sicilian red called Pietradolce which was magnificent with the Funghi and Margarita pizzas! Monday’s meatball night and along with the salumi board you can go KETO! Sean served us in a very professional and friendly manner. A great evening on College....
Delicious food. Great atmosphere. Reservations are necessary
Poor service and loud environment. Difficult to carry conversation.
We had the worst service. Our server was rude, ignored us and made us feel unwelcome.
As always, the service was exceptional. Our server provided a personalized experience that augmented the already pleasant atmosphere and ensured we had an exceptional dining experience.
Food was good but not great. Pizza was very good but could use more sauce. Service was good. Wine was great.
Great pizza! Yummy appetizers.
Delicious salads, pasta, chicken, and fish. Responsive service. Great atmosphere and interesting wine list. We will return!
Because most of the menu was in Italian, we had to have the waiter translate for us. I ordered the steak and no one asked how I wanted it so presumed it would come medium rare. It was well done, a bit tough and lacked flavor. For $38 this wasn't an good value for experience.
Kind and welcoming staff. Delicious food. Gorgeous wine selection. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
The only thing A16 has going for it is location. The service is horrible and the food is marginal, at best.
Another good meal at A16 Rockridge. Recommended wine was a particularly good find.
I want to love this place, but our service was only so so by the waitress who helped us on our date night. A man came over and we much more helpful and friendly, too bad he didn't serve us the whole time. But please tell me what's up with these prices. $22 for a hunk of burrata and eight tiny pieces of toast? I can and do get this exact thing at Trader Joes for under $6. We had two pizzas, appetizers, and one glass of wine and one drink each....$144 without tip. Yikes, its pizza for goodness sake, and not the works best either. Sorry A16, not coming back until this ship is righted.
