There was a much smaller menu than advertised online. Only a few bar snacks and sandwiches. Additionally, there was a onesie bar crawl happening in the area that made it very loud and service slow. Server was hustling but there were not enough people on to support the customers.

Thanks for the nice service and ambience--but I liked your old menu better--with a choice of green salad --with or without chix

Music volume was up, way too loud. Everyone was practically yelling - or lip-reading! Server was nice, but lacked any semblance of knowledge or food and beverages. She also stuck her thumb right on a plate in the middle when setting out appetizer plates! Gross!

Went for dinner with a small party for my wife’s birthday. We arrived on schedule for our reservation and were seated promptly. Food was great, everyone enjoyed their meals. However, we agreed the service lacked. It was awkward when the waitress took our menus after we placed an order for appetizers and drinks; I made dinner reservations not appetizer and drink reservations. Additionally, it took quite long for the bar to make a second drink for one of our party members. It was not crowded in the restaurant at all and the drink ordered came off their drink menu so it was very hard to understand what took 20 minutes to make one drink. Four party members ordered entrees that had French fries and we had to ask someone other than our waitress for ketchup. Overall the food was good but the lack of service will make me not recommend the restaurant or at least tell people to be warned about service before dining there.

One more thing, I mentioned it was my wife’s birthday in the comments of my reservation and at no point during dinner did they ask about it. I realize not all restaurants have a policy to do things for people’s birthdays but if I’m designating it a “special occasion” and say “it’s my wife’s birthday” I would expect to hear maybe “I hear someone’s celebrating a birthday. Happy Birthday!” at the very least. Plus they only had one desert on the menu so I’m not sure if they could afford to give one complimentary or not.

Super nice staff--they even held our table for 15 minutes (on a busy Friday night!) when I called to tell them my friend had been in a motorcycle accident and we were running late. Thanks so much! :)

Menu is extremely limited for folks that do not eat meat or foul. This bar and restaurant are entirely to close to each other. the bar crowd stands around the bar and their conversations and presence interrupts the dining experience.

As soon as I walked in the door, I was greeted graciously by a well dressed young lady and asked if I would like to go to my table. I told her that I was waiting for my son and I would like to sit at the bar. She escorted me to the bar and found 2 stools together and said that I could sit there. She was so nice that it made the rest of the evening extremely pleasant. As soon as I sat down, another charming bar tender asked me if I would like some water. She brought me the water and then asked if I would like something from the bar. This was such a change from most bars, where, before you sit down, someone immediately asks you what libation you want to drink. I ordered and my drink came almost immediately. A few minutes later, the bar tender asked me if my drink was satisfactory and if I would like an appetizer while waiting for my son. I ordered their special olives which were warm and delicious. After my son arrived we ordered a chicken bowl and a cheeseburger with fries. Everything was totally delicious. I wanted the hamburger medium rare and they complied perfectly. My son said that the chicken bowl was outstanding. During this time, I watched countless couples come in for dinner and drinks. When we left, we were thanked by everyone, and asked if there was anything more they could do for us. This is unlike most Bay Area Restaurants/Bars where no one takes a personal interest in your dining experience. What a great find for excellent, casual dining. My thanks to the management and staff for providing such a pleasant evening.

Small but very intimate. All the Waite staff are very attentive and they remember you if you come more than once. The drinks are good too. The have s wide selection of top quality spirits, and I also enjoy the menu which has vegetarian & vegan options.

Been here 10+ times and always enjoy the food and cocktails. Unfortunately, my last couple of visits were marred by the place being incredibly understaffed. This time, our server was a delight, but she seemed to be the only one working the entire restaurant on a busy Thursday evening. Still, nice save by the staff: when our drinks had been forgotten (the place is mostly a bar, after all, so seemed odd that the food would arrive first), the server offered an apology and a free food item (we opted for the chocolate custard -- tres delish!), and a manager-type almost instantly appeared with the drinks (well worth the wait). Very generous response for something that wasn't a big deal. We'll continue to come here even without being bribed 😁, but better if they staff up to avoid these pitfalls in the first place.

Their food is SO good. Creative without being at all pretentious. It can get a bit noisy, but worth it for the wonderful eats.

I really want to like this place -I’m a huge oakland supporter (since I live and work here), the space is great, interesting crowd. But we had to wait a really long time to get anything to eat or drink. We waited at least 1/2 hour for a glass of wine and about an hour for dinner. And it was not that crowded. Food was ok to above average. I would go back again to sit at the bar and have a drink.

We had the Caprese cocktail and almost died and went to heaven! We are cocktail connoisseurs and this by far is top 5. Plum is a GEM and our favorite place to grab phenomenal drinks and snacks! Music is great, decor is warm and inviting, candle light everywhere. Love it here!
