Had the seared scallop risotto - amazing! Wonderful truffle taste, the ultimate comfort food. As always, service was friendly, and the cranberry manhattan boozy slushy was lovely.

The savory French toast is out of this world delicious and such a unique blending of textures and flavors. Second time I’ve been there, ordered it both times and was thoroughly delighted with it!

The food is interesting and tasty generally but service is a bit aloof and slow. Wondering if success has lead to a crowd management mindset rather than welcoming hospitality. I recommend the savory French toast, but ask for dressing on the side - it came dripping in oil which made it difficult to taste the porcini in the rest of the dish.

We had a truly great time. The service was impeccable - attentive but not intrusive. The food was well presented and best of all was delicious. We’re already looking forward to our next visit. We love the neighborhood and it was very pleasant walking around before dinner.

Thanks for a wonderful experience.

Good food, pretentious/snotty service. I don't need to go to a restaurant where my presence is viewed as an inconvenience. Our server was rude and not friendly at all. I'll spend my money elsewhere.

I used to love this place, but my last 3 visits have been very subpar. This trip I had a meatball sandwich. It was fine. Mostly bread, hardly any meatballs or sauce. Served on a white plate with nothing else on it. No side, no garnish. Depressing. For $13 plus tax and tip? Friends salad came dressed when she asked for dressing on the side. Last visit I had the pastrami rueben fries. They were pretty much In edible. The meat was so fatty and the fries were so soggy. Cali mixed plate is usually really delicious, but the last time I had it, the salad was too salty too eat. Too many good places to eat. Three strikes, you’re out for me GLK

We went for the special fixed price dinner during restaurant week, which we have done in the past, and as always, it was delicious. The brisket was melt in your mouth delicious, the mashed potatoes so smooth and rich, and the turnips were beautifully caramelized. We loved the chicory salad, and the dressing was perfect - not too much, not too little. One of us got the Prosecco with the dinner, which we shared, and the other one got the tiny hot cinnamon sugar donuts that were the dessert, and we split those. Perfect.

I'm working my way through the menu because I was blown away by the first two times I came (first time, I had the scrambled eggs. Second time, the kale with persimmon seasonal salad). I then ordered the GLK burger (at the Diamond location) and was totally underwhelmed. The burger size was small and not very tasty.

The last time I ordered the Cali plate with tuna. It was good but meh. I could get similar quality in many other places and for less $$$.

So, all in all, it started off with a bang and has since fizzled a bit.

Went on New Year’s Eve. Sad they were out of boozy slushees, but that just gave us an excuse to try some of their excellent and creative cocktails. As usual, food (multiple shared plates for grazing) was wonderful, service warm and friendly.

I love Grand Lake Kitchen! They have great brunches, but it gets very crowded on the weekend, with long waits. But it's worth it.
I also like dinner at GLK. Four of us recently had an excellent meal sharing fried plantain to start, and a mix of the rock cod, harissa stew and the gnocchis. All the entrees were delicious. The service was great, too. Originally, we'd booked outdoor seating, but it was too cold, and the team found us an indoor table.
Grand Lake Kitchen is one of my favorite places in Oakland. Worth visiting any time of day.

Small restaurant with a long bar. Made a reservation for 3, wouldn’t get me seated until other 2 showed. They had me stand by the open door when it was freezing to wait to be seated. The bar was full when I got there. Service is mediocre (order takers, not dining guides) and more casual cafe style, though the menu is more formal bistro vibe with Jewish, American and European dishes.

We loved the food at Grand Lake Kitchen but our entire experience was awful due to very slow service, the inability to hear each other talk, coupled with the seating of a party of 3 drinkers (not ordering food) at a 2-person table next to us - effectively placing a loud party right on top of us. Go with a young group who don’t mind shouting or waiting an hour for food and you’ll be fine.

I almost always get the savory French toast which is out of this world. If I for some reason miss the brunch menu, which lasts until 3pm, I get the chicory salad with tuna. It’s an excellent salad that leaves you full and very satisfied. Other things I like on the menu are the Ruben fries, doughnuts + soft scramble. You pretty much can’t go wrong here, so enjoy!

The food is excellently prepared but more than that it is different. I had the bone marrow. Excellent but different. Who serves bone marrow? My bloody mary was large, filled with pickled veggies, and had a big shot of booze. I will come back and back.

Even though the ambiance is not fancy, chose to come to this neighborhood gem to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. As always, excellent food (stuffed ourselves on bone marrow, burrata, avocado shrimp toast, braised cabbage, green goddess kale), delicious boozy slushies (cranberry Manhattan, mmmmm), friendly service. We were way too stuffed to consider dessert, but when I mentioned that it was our anniversary our sweet server surprised us with a scoop of ice cream with a candle. A lovely comfort-food-filled celebratory feast!
