Innovative and delightful, we were thrilled with our spur of the moment decision to book at Abstract Table. Reading reviews, we were prepared to be wowed by the 7 course meal and it did not disappoint.
One of our seasonal dishes included baby corn elote and I could not get enough! The meal was thoughtfully paced and we cleaned every plate from start to finish.
I had no idea any chefs in Oakland were doing this kind of food and it was exciting to experience although worrisome that it was not very busy on a Saturday night.
It’s a splurge meal you don’t have to dress up for, best of both worlds!
Not sure how to begin...just not good all around. The first dish...Himachi... wasn't fresh. If you're going to serve raw fish you should at least make sure it's fresh and not old in flavor. The shrimp tamale...hmmm...hard small brick of corn meal with a small little shrimp in it. Also inedible. The Wagyu was supposed to have a vinaigrette but it didn't...just raw slices of beef with little Chile slices and a cube of gelatin beef broth in the middle. Pretty tasteless. The short rib was my mostly just fat. If you like all fat I'm sure it was good. We only took one bite of each dish and couldn't eat any more. The waiter took each dish away and never even asked why we weren't eating it. We stopped the meal at that point and didn't have them bring anymore of the pre fixe meal and asked for the check. Not worth the $170. Not sure if this was just a bad night, but none of the dishes were worth eating. We ended up eating dinner around the corner afterward because we were hungry.
The cheapest, <$100.00, fixed price menu around. The food was outstanding, menu will change in September and I will be back.
Lotus flavor bomb
Wonderful food with a variety of influences. If you do the seven course meal, eat lightly before.
This is a pop up restaurant so it’s important to know that as the atmosphere is not as you’d expect for a 5 or 7 course meal. The food is excellent.
The menu was very interesting and fun. Would def recommend the 7 course as it's only $70! Fun and unique tastings.
Inventive, delicious, well prepared and served. A nice high end alternative to the usual fair. My only complaints were that the food was under seasoned (I'm only talking about salt, here) and they only offered wine and sake with a meal that deserved a cocktail and a beer list.
I did enjoy all of the seven course meal. The service was nice. I was expecting to see more ART in the design of the food. The flavors of the food was great. I would go back for another meal. I would like to know how would a customer know if the menu has changed. Do they change the menu weekly? I would be excited to try other dishes. The dishes that I experienced on August 2, 2019 were all very tasty. Leaves you wanting more.
Took a chance on trying Abstract Table while hosting out-of-town friends and had a fantastic meal that felt uniquely Oakland -- tasty, mutli-cultural and unpretentious. Don't let the humble digs fool you. We had the seven course menu which felt more like a gourmet journey than a standard meal. The experience was well-paced and each dish had a creative twist on traditional Japanese cuisine, artfully fused with other international flavors and fresh, seasonal ingredients. Excited to return!
This place did not disappoint! Every course was exquisite, delightfully tasty and well prepared. Andrew and Duncan are on top of their game. The staff are pros. This is the best food experience Uptown!
Great experience for foodies! Loved every course!
Very creative courses! Beautiful presentations! Accessible price point for many!
The best tasting menu under $100! I've gone four seasons in a row and never been disappointed.
Interesting concept. Creative representations of comfort street food from around the world. Definitely worth trying.
Very innovative dishes. Love all the dishes presented. The first course was Hamachi, heirloom tomato, pineapple and lime popsicle. Each dish presented had a unique taste. The restaurant offered fixed price menu. Either a five course or seven. The cost were very reasonable . I would recommend this restaurant.
Simply fantastic experience, food as art. Fantastic Chef who cook with his soul.
Great food, so proud of Oakland.
The dishes were exquisitely delicious and each course was a visual surprise. The portions were perfect and thoughtfully paced. The chefs and service are the best. Ask the chefs how they create their artful creations ;) It was a lovely dining and social experience that I intend to repeat!
Food was excellent. You see with your eyes first & presentation was exceptional. The courses were interesting (In a good way) & really good. We appreciated the detailed description by server & conversation with one of the chefs. Looking forward to more dining. Will share experience with others. Good value. Wine selection needs a boost but food was awesome.
This was a fun and adventurous meal. The ambiance was not great but the food was world-class.
Wow. The presentation was top notch, but the food was even better than the presentation. I've eaten at many places where the presentation was outstanding (Hello Atelier Crenn) but the food did not live up to the promise of the presentation. I am glad to say that my tongue was even happier than my eyes. And, there was plenty of food. And the price for this kind of food was super reasonable.
I'm a tough grader, but even the worst dish would get an A- from me. All other dishes were solid A's or A+'s. I was really really happy with this dinner. I can't wait to go back to see what they are going to produce next season (the menu changes seasonally).
This is easily one of the best food experiences you can have in Northern California. GO NOW!
Great innovative menu. Loved the atoll menu!
Lovely food and service. The only critiques would be the paper napkins don’t stand to the level of the meal, cloth (tough pricier to maintain) would be more appropriate. Second, a few more non-alcoholic choices (besides coffee, tea, water) would make the non-drinkers feel more welcomed.
