The Julia Child tribute was right on target. Best coq a vin I ever ate including my wife's excellent rendition of Julia's very long recipe. Whole meal delicious including the house wine. Service, atmosphere all at the highest East Bay standards.
Love Sunday dinners! Always different and always executed so well.
Great food, service, variety. A DOWN HOME FEEL MAKING YOU ALWAYS WELCOME
The food was impeccably prepared and presented and the taste was amazing. I have eaten hundreds of restaurant meals around the world and this ranked with the best. The service matched the food. Bistro ambiance and Michelin level food.
Service was beyond indifferent. Slow, unresponsive and often just ignoring customers. The fact that this a no-tip restaurant may be why.
Good was good but not exceptional. $39 for 1/4 of a ribeye though was a little much. Husband left still hungry.
Way too noisy
Went with Chef’s tasting menu that is the ‘family styled feast’ and includes four courses with a tasting of each. We had a prawn allergy and a prawn addiction and the restaurant opted to treat our party of three as prawn free. We were advised the chef could add prawns safely for the prawn junkie, and they did! Was also advised of a couple wine pairings which were on point and a great coffee/tea service with dessert course which was perfect. From perfect rib-eye, crisp fish skin, fresh farm to table, soft-doughy bread, delightful goat cheese and figs...quite a delicious night. Two hour dinner for three & gratuity included. When you deserve to be treated well, inside and out, Homestead is your place.
We had a really nice time at Homestead. The food was delicious, and its presentation was beautiful. Our host and the person waiting at our table were gracious and friendly. The birthday cookies they gave to my wife were a delightful surprise, a delight that was surpassed by their delectable taste. I recommend highly Homestead in Piedmont!
Homestead is built on food made completely from scratch where quality comes first. This was my wife and my second time enjoying a phenomenal experience here and we'll surely be back.
We strongly recommend going "family style" which is more of a tasting menu experience. The menu offers too many amazing dishes to choose from and this allows you to take the guess work out and enjoy the ambiance and company as the food continues to come out!
Very small portions. I don’t drink wine and with $18 bottles of imported beer We stuck with water. Won’t be back.
My husband and I love Homestead! We have been a handful of times and are always impressed. The food is excellent and the servers are knowledgeable and friendly. I would definitely recommend!
Sunday nights are a fixed menu. The food was good but I think they should make it more known that there are NO choices to be made
Delicious food and wonderful service. Relaxed and laid-back atmosphere.
Delicious meal. Each ingredient was handled with care.
Sea bass was excellent and great wine selection by the glass.
Great service, great food, great vibe. Can’t wait to return.
The food was too salty.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Every person in the restaurant was very kind and accommodating. Our waitress was very knowledgeable on the wine-list and gave us good recommendations. The food was excellent, we ordered way too much food and loved all of it! I would definitely come back again!
We went for A Sunday supper. The meal was incredible, very filling and a great value. The service was excellent, everyone was very friendly and knowledgeable. Really nice atmosphere, overall a great experience. We will be back!
Amazing food as always especially the soft shell crab dish. Glad to see they have half bottle wine selection since it was just 2 of us and a full bottle would have been too much.
My absolute favorite restaurant in California. Every detail is exquisite. Everytime I visit is better than the last. I recommend to do the family feast where the chef's choose for you. Such a magical experience. Love you Homestead. Thank you for another amazing birthday celebration.
Fab food. I have been there twice in last couple of weeks and the menu
is always new and innovative. Love the interesting and unusual dishes (anchovies whole
in a little gems salad) that was a first for me eating whole anchovies.
Sunday supper is our favorite! It’s always delicious
WAAAAAAAY too expensive for what you get. Are nose rings sanitary?
We so enjoyed Sunday supper at Homestead, steak and eggs, so wonderful, and waffles for dessert that were outstanding. The environment is casual, Fred, the owner is always welcoming, and the cooking is very sophisticated and always tasty. The servers are always pleasant and efficient, everyone steps up to help out so that the overall service is always very good.
Sunday supper menus are a blast. This past Sunday was breakfast for dinner-amazing smoked salmon appetizer, steak and eggs with biscuits, and finished with waffles and wonderful peaches. Delicious!
I just think the owner don’t need to be walking the floor the hole time looking at people while the eat there food I think that was crazy
Enjoyed the short rib and beautifully thought out menu. The shrimp ceviche was also excellent!
The food was outstanding. Our server was attentive to a fault. She kept interrupting our conversation to reach over the table and refill our water glasses. That almost ruined a very, very nice dinner.
Next time, I wish she would either put the glasses and water bottles near her, or check if we wanted her to keep interrupting. Frankly, I would have preferred if she poured the first glass only and without reaching across the table, then just left us alone. We could have caught her eye and summoned her if we really wanted something.
Kudos to our waitress and waiter: they were pleasantly personable and the dot on the 'i', the excellent food.
We had a most delightful and memorable anniversary evening
The food has evolved to a new level. We ordered Gazpacho soup which we never do. Prefer hot soups. But this was over the top, maybe because tomatoes are in season, but all 4 hot soup lovers were smacking their lips! Fussy vegetarian loved his egg, vegi course. They had our 2 birthday peoples’ names on our menu... They need some California wines.
We took our daughter here while visiting her, I found it on Open Table. The food was good but not worth the price of the items. The bigger issue is that they automatically included an 18% gratuity. The service was fine but we like to decide how much we would like to give. The meal was more expensive then it needed to be. We live in LA so we know about expensive restaurants.
I have been eating at Homestead since it opened. It has really been one of my favorite restaurants to go to for a lovely meal. However, the last two experiences were not as good as previous ones. I like the concept of pAying employees a liveable wage, but the price of dishes have gone up and the quality and imagination have gone down. My guest ordered the rib eye steak and it was incredibly dry, although tender. I had the salmon with but it could have used a delicious sauce to give it that extra something. The vegetables were perfectly prepared but it needed something to bring it together. I may go back again. But if the food does not improve, it may be my last.
We had an excellent dinner at Homestead. Start to finish, the food was superb. Everything was fresh, most of it was local, and it has all been prepared attentively and with creativity. Perfectly seasoned. Standouts included the softshell crab, the fennel salad, the hand cut pasta, and the watermelon sorbet with hibiscus granita. It was a hot day and we would have appreciated air-conditioning.
This was a family night meal which Means it was served on platters. tonight was prime rib night and portions were so generous I have a second meal tomorrow. Lucky me because it was incredibly delicious The meat was done perfectly and ditto for veggies. The twice cooked potatoes were crispy and I had to control my desire to eat them all
Amazing ambiance, phenomenal food made with the freshest and local ingredients with a charm that is unmatched.
One of my favorite restaurants, always such a treat! Staff is always kind and courteous. I love that the food price includes a living wage for their employees. Food is always excellent, light, and feels healthy.
Food disappointing at this visit. Not up to standard it’s been on previous visits. Soft/shell crab tasteless and undercooked.
