Different brunch menu - braised pork belly Benedict, smoked salmon and pork hash were great. But, the star was the buttermilk fried chicken & biscuit with pork sausage gravy! Really different cocktails. Wasabi Bloody Mary, Pimm's Cup and the very interesting Wagonwheel... try it!

Renowned Oakland restaurant, with terrific friend chicken, which is marinated in butter milk, while milk, Japanese mustard powder, and soy sauce. The chicken is so moist and the skin crispy and flavorful. Also loved the side of a brown butter sauce on smashed marble potatoes. And the oyster with Unami and salmon roe is perfection on a shell.

My friend and I went to Hopscotch today for lunch and I was pleasantly surprised. We had wonderful drinks. I ordered a wagonwheel, which was delicious. My friend ordered the burger and fries and I had the smoked salmon benedict. Both entrees were fantastic. The bartender/servers were very attentive and friendly. The prices were reasonable. We enjoyed ourselves. Hopscotch is... More

We went to this restaurant for both their happy hour and Sunday brunch. For the happy hour, we experienced great service and nice appetizers with at least one having a Japanese cuisine influence. For brunch, customers can be standing forever at the door to get a table without anyone on staff acknowledging their presence. (Catch a server to ask for... More

A very unique restaurant and cannot describe a particular style of cuisine We share fried green tomatoes and 2 other appetizers. My daughter an son in law share the fried chicken as the portion was that large and I had the clams in broth wth scallion pancake with turnips. Sounds strange but delicious Drinks were also unique. Some with jalapeño... More

My wife and I were celebrating an anniversary and we heard great things about this restaurant. As would be expected, there was a wait so we went to the corner bar (connected to the restaurant) for a drink. Our name was called and we sat at a table for two (kinda cramped but understandable). We started with the half dozen... More

Had brunch there on Father's Day. Staff was very friendly and food was good. Not your average breakfast choices and good portion sizes. We all left full and happy, ready to start our day. Had the fried chicken and biscuits with eggs. Very good. Wish I could remember what others had because they were all so happy. I would absolutely... More

Went there with friends as I heard so muck about the fried chicken and beef tongue burger. We got there early and was able to secure a table for 6. After some great cocktails, we shared some starters which included kakiage (fried red onion, enoki mushrooms) which was very tasty and good, blistered fava beans whisk was ok, and hamachi... More

Absolutely right choice after a long flight; the wedge salad was delicious, blend of old school and new, as was the fried chicken. Friendly atmosphere.
