Last minute birthday dinner with the family and it was perfect. A quiet Tuesday night with excellent food in a festive atmosphere. I can't wait to go back.

My wife and I went for dinner the day after our wedding and had a great experience. We met the owner and he was very nice gave us a free drink and chocolate tort after our ordered dinner. The staff was attentive and the wild mushroom parpadelle with Marsala cream sauce was delicious!

Enjoyed a pre-show dinner before going to the Zellerbach. Simple, clean, utilitarian space. Straightforward menu, simple preparation of quality ingredients. Shared a Salad, Pizza (nice blister char) Pasta and a side of veggies. A single glass of white. Dessert. The bill was over $100. not including gratuity. Everything was prepared well and was tasty. Service was swift and efficient. We will return.

Beautiful new building that has a “feel” to it, and involved, thoughtful owner who presides over most of the service. Delicious!
A square price. Go

We were excited about dining at the Creekside restaurant. We ate there once before and absolutely loved it. Don’t know if it was just an off night, but Tonight’s meal was okay but not awe-inspiring.

The restaurant is located in an unassuming spot, and was quiet when we entered at 6:30, but the staff was extremely friendly and immediately won us over (along with the smell of dessert baking in the wood burning oven!). The service was fantastic and the food was delicious. The place quickly filled up and had a lively atmosphere. We were able to taste wines before choosing what we wanted, and could ask for substitutions in dishes, which is always a plus. The fresh pasta dishes were very tasty, and we enjoyed a variety of appetizers. I came with a group from work and everyone thanked me for choosing such a great restaurant. Highly recommend!

The item we wnated was no longer available along with the appetizer we asked for. Wait staff was forgetful and not very attaentive at all. The food we did get was phenominal, although one of the entrees was almost ten minutes after the other four. All in all, great food and very mediocre service. Did I mention it was VERY loud inside?

Sorry that the item you wanted was no longer available. We work hard to make sure all of our items are high quality and at times when something like our Monterrey squid doesn't come in fresh we eliminate from the menu until our suppliers have a higher quality product. We also have sound dampening on our ceiling but we know when it is busy it can be a bit loud. Hope you give us another try!

Food was pretty fresh. Pizza was good, appetizer (gnudi) could have used a bit more marinara sauce, but they seemed to be open to feedback and happily obliged to my request for more. Wine had gone a little sour, but it was overall a very pleasant dining experience. Offered great bread. I’ve also gone for brunch, and their falafels were the best I’ve had, even if a little different.

Creekwood Restaurant has a nice aesthetic and friendly people. We were there for a Sunday brunch. The food was tasty even though the Avocado Toast was underwhelming. They also ran out of biscuits which were a part of a few dishes we wanted. The eggs were cooked very nicely and the fried chicken was crispy and crunchy on the outside and tender on the inside. The mimosas and coffees were fresh and delicious.
The service was extremely slow. We waited for about 50 minutes for our food (and there was no apology for the wait). The noise level was a little high for such a small place. It was tasty food but a little pricey.

Creekwood is a hidden gem in this neighborhood. We were fortunate enough to sit outside and watch the locals walking their dogs or strolling with their children. As they passed the restaurant, many stopped to look at the menu, and the managers were always there to give them a little "411" about Creekwood. I hope the neighborhood will embrace this gem! All the food is delicious, however, ask your server (or the managers), which dishes are good for that day. Sometimes they have fresh ingredients being used in one of the menu items and might not empathize that when they tell you the specials.

We took our family to Creekwood for dinner while visiting our son at UC Berkeley. Every dish we had was fantastic. The service was top notch. We ended our meal with dessert and coffee on the patio. Will be back again and again whenever we are in town.

Squid appetizer excellent; steak and lamb chop well-cooked, but not the highest grade of meat. Tap water was tepid; had to ask for ice water, which came promptly when requested. Deserts were not served at the same time, which made me eat mine while my wife had nothing, and then had me watching while she ate hers. Affogato served with coffee already poured rather than poured at the table, as it should be.

Creekwood Restaurant had some good dishes and some fair dishes...but the cost was the difficult part. Two diners had the octopus appetizer, the burrata and tomato appetizer, gnocci pasta . steak and lamb chop plus 3 glasses of wine and the bill with tip came to $205.
The sporot of the place gas chabged. Fewer staff...and the person who greeted us at the door and seated us was also our waitress. And we never felt we had her attention. She seemed to be spending more time talking to the bartender then checking on us.
Hope they can make the adjustments that would bring it back to what it used to be.
We have had better meals at other places for less...and a more attentive staff.
Sorry to write this.
Good luck.

Excellent food and service! We ordered the gnudi, calamari (both appetizers), the mushroom pizza, and the spaghetti. Two glasses of white wine, then 2 glasses of red. The calamari was probably the best I have ever had, and the pizza and spaghetti were excellent, although everything was unusually rich. We both agreed, but others might not. Because it was so rich we would have been fine with just the pizza or the pasta. Or, maybe we should have skipped the gnudi. Unlike the reviewers on Yelp, we did not care for the gnudi. It absolutely was too rich, too big, and it just didn’t have amazing flavors. It was actually kind of ordinary. The service was fantastic, all four glasses of wine were perfect. For some reason the inside of the restaurant reminded me of Stella Nona. (But I have not been there in years). We made reservations on a Friday evening which I recommend. Definitely going back!
