The cocktails are outstanding. The vibe on a Sunday night with a jazz combo...nice surprise. The risotto and seafood stew were tasty as was the squid and burrata apps. Can’t wait to come back
Excellent service. Excellent breakfast pastries. . .particularly enjoyed the ham and cheese croissant. Great food. Such a beautiful space. So glad it got taken over by someone who obviously loves it.
Good time at Penrose for girlfriend’s casual brunch. Waiter was pleasant, efficient and allowed us to enjoy one another’s company. We arrived ahead of our reservation and although they were busy, we were seated early.
great staff, service, and food! will definitely go again
Great ambiance, attentive service, fun atmosphere and good food.
Everything about this place was amazing. Service food and cocktails were out of this world. Our server Leticia was phenomenal and patient. Will be back soon.
We come here from San Jose for birthdays, brunch and dinners. Always worth the trip! Everyone is very nice and of course the food is fantastic!
service was slow, food was good, not great... drink options somewhat limited... more sparkling wine options for saturday brunch please. cool looking place, people super nice...just not thrilled with it.
Love how Penrose changes menus regularly. The offerings are always a surprise, such as calamari with harissa chickpeas. Brussels Sprouts with pomegranate seeds and apples. Some of the best cocktails around.
Since Rico took over the food has just gotten better and better. He is putting his stamp on the place and he has the freedom to do that here that he did not fully have at Flora. The results are impressive and the vibe is also great - the Sunday night jazz jam session is a real treat.
It took ten minutes to get service and water after being seated. It’s so dark you need a flashlight to read the menu. And then there was a band, so all conversation stopped. The food was great, especially the Brussels sprouts!
Music a tad too loud. A little hipster Oakland unappealing vibe but very good service. Good bourbon and rye. Not a place we’d frequent - we prefer Shakewell nearby.
Mostly good. The pork was fatty and the oysters should not have been served. But gnocchi was excellent and crab cakes were very good. The restaurant week deal was nice but seemed to only offer the less popular choices
Every thing was great
Service was slow fir ordering initial drinks. The server did not caution the table that the vodka tonic drink would not be ‘normal’. Had to return the drinks. Missed capturing appetizer requests, didn’t repeat to confirm order. Overpriced. Good ambience and energy.
