Six of us had dinner last night. The restaurant is lovely. We were able to talk to each other in a normal tone of voice even though the restaurant was crowded. The Southern food was wonderful. I had short ribs with grits--best I've ever had....More

The restaurant décor is very nice. It took the waitress 15 minutes before she showed up. The corned beef hash was salty, and I like salty food. I also ordered a Creole Bloody Mary which was OK, I've had better. I think they skimped on...More

Pican has become my go to Soul Food spot whenever I visit the Bay Area. It has a great upscale vibe. The fried chicken with the honey truffle is amazing. The mac and cheese is fantastic too!

Just left from having lunch today, the pecan fried oyster po boy sandwich. Just remarkable the sophistication that is infused with the southern hearty and flavorful food! My favorite Burbon Bar, Bartenders, Restaurant, and overall culinary experience in the Entire Bay Area!

My wife and I had a terrific meal at Pican, which is best described as an upscale soul food restaurant near downtown Oakland. Situated in a magnificently restored building that retains its early-1900s charm, this gem produces spectacularly tasting food. I had the "gator gumbo"...More
