I had heard there was a flat price dinner on MON and TUES nights-26 dollars for appetizer, entree and dessert. You must ask when you come in after 3 pm, otherwise you get a regular menu with regular prices. The Petite Filet was quite petite- it looked about 3 ounces, but perfectly cooked. Loved the Pea Salad and the Key... More

This is a "nicer" place with seafood and steak type of menu. I had the shrimp risotto and it was good. The view of the bay from the dining room is the best feature of this place. Service was decent. It is a bit pricey.

Our server was very good and attentive. The food was okay. Husband had the breaded chicken which her didn't care for. I ordered the appetizer sampler plate. It wasn't bad. Neither of us would order the same dishes again.

The restaurant was appealing for it's location and interior. The menu appeared appetizing with a wide range of starters and courses to try from. However, once the food started to come out, this promising 5 star restaurant quickly plummeted to 2 stars (and I am being generous). I had the wedge salad which was ok but the lettuce was still...

For such a highly touted and expensive restaurant this was a let down. The food was predictable and boring. It's a corporate foot print that I wish I'd missed.

My friend and I chose this place because it seemed to have the most options for Sunday brunch with a reasonable price at Jack London Square. The restaurant was not overly busy, which was great for us because we wanted time and space to catch up. We were seated at the window and the view was beautiful (it helped that... More

All day American dining, they have great choices for early/late lunch and good choices for dinner. During the daytime you have an awesome view of the pier and docks.

Kincaids is right on the Oakland Estuary. Most tables get a view of the sailboats going up and down the estuary which is nice. Kincaid's food is good but not superb. The wait staff is friendly but service is not 5 star. This is a corporate restaurant which does everything OK, but nothing perfect. Because of the location, prices are... More

This was a great dining experience right on the water. Beautiful view! I didn't care for the fish I ordered and they replaced it with a delicious red snapper with no hassle. 😀 The service was stellar! The mashed sweet potatoes and calamari and artichokes were excellent. The decadent chocolate cake was EVERYTHING with a great cup of coffee!!!
