We had a wonderful time! Our waitress was great, the food was very tasty and, because it was not packed, it felt intimate. And the wine was very good as well!

We had 3 appetizers, drinks, and 2 paellas for 4. Plenty of food but we totally cleaned our plates including scraping to the bottom of the paella pans.

Simply the best restaurant in the San Francisco Bay Area. The food, service and ambiance are all exceptional. We have been going to Duende since they opened and it always feels like one of the most special evenings out.

The food is really superb, but the paella we got was just alright - we got the fideua which was a little soft and we wanted more of the crunchy bottom, but it was all stuck the pan but everything else was spectacular. The patatas bravas and the calabazas asados y romesco were outstanding. The cocktails were great and service was also wonderful.

Having booked tickets to the 7pm Early Show for Michael Che at the Fox theater…I only had a 5:30pm reservation for a party of 4 to dine. The restaurant hostess was great at letting me know they would work with this timeframe.

Our waiter didn’t miss a beat with respect to drink /tapas recommendations. Definitely recommend the Papas and the summer squash!!! Talk about fantastic flavor. Their specialized sauces for these items really made it all worth it. We ordered the veggie and meat paella and it came out in perfect timing.

The blackberry smash was favorite drink choice! We got to the show in time and would recommend this place to anyone.

This was a big hit with the entire crowd. We got the chef’s tasting menu and it was excellent. The paella(s) were fabulous. The assortment of pinchon and tapas was amazing. We would go back in a heartbeat. The service was superlative and most gracious. All in all an excellent choice in Oakland.

We arrived with an extra person which pushed us into the prix fix (7) and were totally blown away at the quality of the choices that arrived in perfect order. It was a much better experience than when we've been there and chosen from the menu.

Hawai'i-based DMC professional on a leisure visit to the Bay and this is my first time at Duende. My party ordered the potatoes, the cabbage salad, the roasted summer veggies, the Arroz Negro, and the crostata for dessert. Everything was really tasty. I especially liked the sauce that came with the summer veggies, lots of good deep flavor. I was really looking forward to trying the Arroz Negro and it waa delcious. The rockfish and squid were perfectly cooked and the pickled salad really balanced out the dish. Overall great plating as well, most dish was interesting and had some great colors. Loves all the textures too. The roasted pistachios on some of the dishes were a really great texture contrast if you're into that sort of thing like I am :)

I really loved that the drinks were all summer inspired. Lots of fun clear drinks with alternative citrus flavors that paired well with the food menu. I had a couple Summer on Spains, a G & T (with extra cucumbers), a Tropidia, and a Blackberry Smash (which I asked to replace the bourbon with a Russian vodka just because I was just feeling the clears last night).

Service was really great. Very attentive but not too much. Always refreshed our tap water via a wine bottle and served sparkling water in a decanter. Checked on us enough and our server had a few tables on their section.

Really great vibe. We ended up staying for almost 4 hours and our server was super kind about not rushing us to leave. I ended up ordering a couple more drinks because we were there so long, so hopefully that made up for it!!

I noticed that this is one of the older restaurants in the area so wanted to support local business that's at least 5 years old or more.

Glad I went and would definitely recommend.

Well prepared and somewhat unique entrees, if a bit pricy. Portions of some items were adequate while others were skimpy.

Positives: the cabbage salad was tasty, substantial and somewhat different than any I've had in Spain or elsewhere; The mixed charcuterie and cheese platter was very tasty, and the salami tasted homemade, but the portion was not a good value for $18.
The large dish Arroz Negra with the squid ink was unique in its combination of ingredients, very flavorful and quite substantial, though more expensive than comparable platters from other local Tapas bars like Cesar's in Berkeley. We both really liked it. Reasonably good selection of Spanish wines

Negatives: The Sangria at $13/glass was way overpriced, considering that it lacked the sweetness and fruitiness I'm used to with Sangria. The amount of seafood and rockfish in the $44 Arroz Negra dish should have been more substantial. The fruit crostata at $13 was average at best, sort of small, with a hard and not flaky shell. Fruit filling was tasty. Coffee was decent but not exceptional.
If they were to make some of the improvements I'm suggesting, they'd probably be the best in the East Bay

Such a nice surprise there paella is obviously what you come for, we had the seafood paella and it was done perfectly. Flavors were definitely different than we are used too. Drinks were good and service was excellent! It was a Sunday so not sure if the moderate noise level was due to that but it was relaxing for a Sunday dinner. We will definitely be back to try the other paella dishes!

We loved Duende - having no idea what to expect from downtown Oakland. The menu combinations were interesting & unexpected, but oh so tasty. We had the crocettes, which were delicious & the yellow bean salad with perslaine (what an interesting mix), also good, only since wax beans tend to be a tad hard uncooked, they could have been parboiled. We shared the arroz negra paella. The rice was crusty and tasty but the paella could have used more fish on it. We started with a rose and cava rose which was like a pinot, also perfect for this type of food. We will be back when we have an event in the east bay - to try the other paella with rabbit.

My husband and I have loved this restaurant since happening upon it by chance around 3 years ago, and we were really happy that it's survived the pandemic. The ambiance is really cool and the waitstaff welcoming and responsive, and all the dishes we've tried have been interesting, tasty and satisfying. If you haven't been, definitely give Duende a try!
