With reviews in Diablo Magazine and East Bay Times, Table 24 Orinda serves American comfort food. Owner Michael Karp has creating a comfortable, yet modern designed spot that's inviting to families. Table 24 Orinda has an open kitchen where guests can watch Executive Chef Ulises Santiago and his team create dishes using locally-sourced, organic ingredients. An appetizer of fried artichokes or a fresh roasted beets salad will please the palate. Guests can dine on truffle-mushroom ravioli, fish tacos or pizza with a choice of delicious toppings.
Table 24 Orinda has a full bar that serves wine, beer and cocktails. It also offers brunch on Saturday and Sundays. This restaurant features a happy hour with specials and an outdoor patio with a fire pit for guests to enjoy as they dine. It provides catering services for private events and welcomes reservations.
The service is very good and friendly. The ribs and chicken were very tasty and the portions were very good for the price.
Went for dinner with some visiting friends and their kids. The waitress was very good with the kids, made sure they got their food quickly after spending time helping them choose. The food was a bit variable. The beet salad, really quite good, as was the veggie burger. The meatballs and pasta, was very ordinary. All in all, a reasonable place to take some younger kids for dinner. Table 24 caters to the kids, and provides reasonable adult fare.
Table 24 advertised that it served brunch until 3 p.m. Based on this we made a reservation for 2:30, but were told no brunch was available when we got there. The server was rude and indifferent and there was nothing desirable for lunch on the menu. We left and will never return.
Having reviewed the menu online, was surprised that the menu at the restaurant was not reflective of the online one. I was unable to order the full dinner I planned and settled for the catch of the day, a rock cod sandwich and fries. The filet was skimpy and kept falling out of the bun. The next table was a selfie obsessed group of girls who had another group join them for a selfie fest. In all a very disappointing experience. I will not return,
The food is really amazing here my main problem was the service. Waiter didn't really pay attention to us (had to as multiple times for our drinks). Also didn't tell us prices on the specials, which was a shot when we got the bill. Lastly lots of noisy teen girls- so that was no fun for a date night.
We've had the Lobster Roll three times this summer and think it's really pretty good. The french fries are awesome. I love that I can order grilled fish on a salad, though next time I'll ask for the fish rare, as it was overdone. Service has improved, even though many servers are quite young. Would like to see them make a few really awesome mixed drinks. Maybe also have certain nights where they feature a local winery.
We often dine here, before a movie or for lunch. Food has been consistently pretty good. This occasion we ordered mac and cheese, a specialty which we've had many times in the past. It was so watery and tasteless, we sent it back. Though a bit better 2nd time, it still was not the creamy, tasty dish we've enjoyed on many other occasions. Other dishes were fine. Noise level was very high, worst I've known it to be.
I ordered the seasonal veges omlette that came with country potatoes and english muffin. The omlette was very good. The potatoes came salted. I don't eat salt so I had to send them back. There was no warning on the menu that they would be pre-salted. Why even do that? The english muffin was hard and cold and without any butter on it. So I had to ask for butter and wait for it to come and of course then it wasn't going to melt into a cold muffin. The jelly only came in one flavor: grape. Seriously? My latte was good but not hot. Overall it was mediocre dining experience that I wouldn't recommend to anyone or care to repeat. Our waitperson was very nice.
The new Chef, Jonathan, is from Boston and knows how to do Maine lobster the right (east coast) way, and has the east coast contacts to get the prime lobster shipped in. The lobster roll is perfectly prepared and splendid. The whole lobster also got rave reviews from others in our party. Another nice entree is the hamburger made from in house ground chuck beef and spare ribs...now that's premium hamburger meat with unique and hardy beef taste. Service was top notch, and the manager, Travis, is very involved and proactive in making sure your dining experience is enjoyable. We feel fortunate to have Table 24 in our neighborhood.
The service and the food were perfect. We had the Burrata so good and for the main course the fried chicken and the flank steak salad. Really great.
