Let’s face it, if you’re in Oakland on business at the convention center it’s hard to navigate and find a nice place you can go for a drink, food or dancing other than always having to go to Jack London Square. Luka’s is the answer. It’s a great bar and a great bar and grill food menu. Good salads, awesome... More

Neighborhood spot. Give it a try. You should enjoy it. Folks assailing enter in small groups. Haven't notice much intermixing of social groups. Yet, you'll find a ton of diverse friend folks kibitzing. Hats of off the the Host, Bartenders, and Waiters/Waitresses. Good natured PEEPs. Thanks Alexande and crew! Stop by. Have a beer. My friend enjoyed their burger. I've... More

Our waiter Brian was super friendly and attentive. He made a lot of suggestions which were all great. IPAs he recommended were superb and so was the food that we tried -... More

I have eaten here at least monthly for several months and found the food and service to be great. The burgers are great and happy hour drinks are a plus. I highly recommend this place if in downtown Oakland. It is close to Bart and Paramount Theater.

Luka's taproom has been opened in 2004 and definitely has a steady clientele. We came here for lunch on a rainy Saturday and they were able to accommodate us. Service was good, the ambiance is California brasserie, and the food is average. I like that they offer a vegetarian burger and you can opt for a gluten free bun. The... More

We had a surprise birthday dinner there and it was a Tuesday night and it was half price burger night so 4 out of 5 of us ordered a burger! I ordered a burger and it was good and a ginger beer. They no longer make it from scratch

The menu is eclectic and our party of four ordered quite a variety: each dish got rave reviews. The food was surprisingly good for a place with such a casual atmosphere. Definitely worth a repeat visit ... or two.

Nice and chill place that we used for a birthday get together. The place seems to be a mix between a pub, a bistro and a night club restaurant... And it's pretty well made! First room is the pub /bistro, dark and noisy, fortunately we go straight to back, straight to the pool table with hips of room and tables... More

I had been to Luka's for weekday lunch but never for brunch. The place is known for its fried chicken wings, but there are plenty of other interesting options on the menu. My friend and I could not resist ordering the Green Tomato Benedict: two English muffin halves, each with strips of chiles and slices of avocado, topped with a... More
