The food was exquisite, emphasis on fresh and local. Good COVID precautions. Server was very nice and helpful.
Seating is outdoors so a little bit of street noise and exhaust, but, because it is Piedmont Avenue, not much.
Front of house chatting up the men (only) to complain about his business, costs, regulations etc. kinda glad I was invisible, but still.
We sat outside and were very comfortable with the spacing of the tables. We were celebrating our anniversary and it felt like a special meal and occasion. Everything was delicious and the presentation and service were lovely. We appreciated the gift of cookies in honor of the occasion.
A delightful night out at Homestead. A delicious menu, friendly atmosphere and health protocols in place.
Best meal we’ve had in a long time! Good covid protocols and sicially distamced
Prices seem higher - should add a dollar sign to the ratings
Every single dish nailed it, and we ate everything on the menu (not hard when it’s a highly curated 4-course menu, but still fun to “order the menu”). Beautiful ingredients, thoughtful presentation, and a good pace to service (not rushed, not annoyingly protracted).
Delicious! So wonderful to be back at Homestead. Every course met or exceeded expectations. Servers, team is welcoming, informed and create a great vibe!
Excellent service, food, and vibe!
Good quality homey meal. Service was friendly/inviting.
The first three courses were tasty with a full range of flavors from bright to roasty. Dessert seemed more like an after though - if it weren't for prix fixe, I would not have gotten the dessert.
Portions were spot on - we left more than satisfied.
Overall, a good date night out.
Excellent food, great service, bread was amazing
Incredible food, lovely ambiance. Perfect for a romantic date night.
We had a lovely dinner in the courtyard because indoor dining has not re-started yet. The food was inventive and delicious, and the service is top flight. Remains one of the best.
Not impressed. Flavors were lacking but the staff was nice. Wouldn’t recommend.
We walked in and were greeted by the Covid Gestapo no smiles on anyone’s face that works there and spent $340 on dinner which was outrageous for a price fix during this time.. and a glass of house Chardonnay is $19 !
Can do better elsewhere for that kind of money. This ambience and decor was not good either.
Suggestion: Smile, greet people with warmth and reduce your prices...and you may have a chance in post Covid.
Always excellent food and service. The new outdoor heaters were a good addition.
So great to be able to enjoy dinner here again! The prix fixe menu is imaginative and beautifully executed; there's a choice at each course too. This place always feels like a labor of love -- one that's been fully realized. Can't wait to go back!
Homestead offers a relatively warm outdoor environment. Warm, friendly service, great wine cellar, outstanding interesting food, Fine dining in a casual environment, always enjoyable.
Our best meal in a year !! What a wonderful menu , tasty and innovative . The fireplace grilled duck and Sea Trouts are exquisite. The setting is the best of all the outdoor eateries we had recently tried , in an alley with well placed heaters and away from the road noises . Definitely will go back again soon !
Excellent service, nice ambience for outdoor dining and heaters work very well. Loved the food - a very special evening!
Love this place. Unique restaurant, great food, excellent service. Best spot in Oakland.
Perfect for date night. Was a little chilly outside even with the heat lamps but once they moved them closer, we were much more comfortable. Prix fixe menu was lovely. Small portions but filling by the end.
Lovely outdoor dining set up! I went here this past weekend for a galentine's dinner and very much enjoyed the food and service. They now use the quaint alley way adjacent to the restaruant, but the area is blocked off to the sidewalk for some sense of privacy. The heating lamps were a nice touch, as it's still chilly at this time of year. They're good at following safety protocols, given the pandemic, and the food was still as delicious as pre-pandemic! They're only doing pre fixe menu, which was great - four courses, very satisfying. Our waitress was knowledgeable with offering appropriate wine pairings for our meal. And also, I love that they include gratuity with the pricing! I'll definitely be back soon :)
Quite good in terms of food and service, but a few of the dishes were not quite there for the price paid. I would have preferred a ala carte menu.
A truly spectacular restaurant and wine list that is making magic during COVID. Let's keep them running!
The dinner was delicious and the service was excellent. This is our third time dining at Homestead and it has been an enjoyable experience every time.
Service and food is exceptional!
We had a lovely socially-distanced meal in the side patio area of the restaurant. The staff was super friendly and the food was delicious. We particularly loved the outdoor space with heat lamps.
The food was superb, the service was excellent.
Fred and Sue are outstanding hosts and serve fantastic four course dinners, now of course outside, some inside. They are very friendly and welcoming, and the food is plated beautifully and very creatively offered. We always enjoy fine dining in a very casual and welcoming atmosphere. Outstanding...
Despite the challenges Homestead faces, we had a lovely meal outdoors in the space between the buildings. As usual the food was excellent!
Wonderful food, strategic and informed wine list, consistent and excellent service.
We enjoyed our alfresco dining. Relaxing environment. Food was delicious.
Fantastic prix fixe menu, excellent service, all-around a great experience.
Keeping an amazing dinning experience alive, despite a pandemic. Love this place!
First time there. We ate outside in a little alleyway, which was lovely. Service was great. The host was super knowledgeable about every single thing on the wine list including an unusual pairing of Sherry with the lobster agnolotti. Will definitely go back. Highly recommended.
Another lovely meal at Homestead! It's always been a go-to location for us for special occasions, and now with Covid it's one of the places we feel most comfortable dining out. They've taken over the walkway/passage/alleyway between the restaurant and the next building over and created a lovely outdoor dining area. Unlike other places in our neighborhood you don't have lots of foot traffic walking by you so it feels very cozy and protected. So far they don't have heaters though, so dress warmly!
The food was especially delicious on this last visit with every single course being absolutely remarkable. They do a prix-fixe menus with a couple choices for each course, so make sure you are comfortable with that.
If you are a wine lover, be sure to ask for the full wine list, which is full of well-aged selections of top wines. I never fail to find something new and exciting to try, and never have to feel I'm drinking something that has not reached maturity.
We celebrated my birthday at Homestead and it was perfect. The outdoor setting in the patio was really nice and the service was excellent. The food was absolutely delicious and we had a superb wine. Overall definitely a five star experience!
I could tell the restaurant was delighted to have us dining with them. Wait staff fabulous, very in tune with COVID-19 protocol, food was fabulous. Did not feel rushed. Would go back in a heartbeat.
Not too long ago my husband and I went to a Michelin Star restaurant in Oakland - food was not up to par, wait staff was less than efficient... did not feel like a welcomed guest!!!
OMG the best outdoor meal of 2020. LOL Truly. The chef-owner and his team go above and beyond to deliver a great experience. The ingredients, food, and service were all 5-star. The wine list, coffee, and desert are also 5-stars. It's not a wine store, coffee shop or pastry shop either. WOW. Give it a try and you will not be disappointed. Even when they are able to move indoors for the diners, it's going to be a great food experience. Truly.
