Excellent food and atmosphere. Service was friendly, but a bit spotty.
Really enjoyed our meal and drinks. Tried out some new items on the Restaurant week menu. Great place for a cocktail and after work dinner. Excited to try the Sunday Dinner special next.
Great cocktails. Amazing service. The staff is stellar. Will be a regular spot.
Tribune Tavern was very energetic and the venue was quite comfortable.
The service was very, very slow. We had to keep asking for our food/for our server because we were trying to get to the Oakland Speaker series. If you're not in a hurry, it would be more enjoyable.
We tried the Oakland Restaurant week menu. The fish was a bit disappointing. One person had the chicken and it may have been the better choice. You get 3 courses with the menu, so if we'd only had one course the service would possibly - hopefully - have been faster.
It's a great location, though parking is a bit of a problem.
We went for restaurant week because I received an email with a specific menu for the week. When we got there, the menu wasn't even similar to what was emailed. While we were trying to decide the manager came and took those menus away and gave us another one that had even lower quality items to choose from. Our waiter never came and after 25 min we got up and left.
The restaurant was almost empty and we were seated in the very back of the restaurant in the corner. Couldn’t get a sense of the rest of the place. We were in a corner!!!! Seemed that they were seating the worst seats first. Well, then the food played out the same. Certainly very unremarkable. I’m not sure this place will make it. Not impressed! Mediocre food, ok service, a really sketchy location. They need to up their game to stay open.
It was restaurant week but the place is not busy when we got there. We got seated in the booth by the kitchen. The menu sounded really good, minus the fact that they didn’t have vegetarian options. The service took long and the folks serving the food didn’t even greet us, they simply attempt to put the food on the table. When we got our food, which took hella long, the food wasn’t even warm anymore. I’m guessing it has been sitting there? The flavors were good but the overall food wasn’t. I got the scallops and the pork belly and they’re both overcooked. The scallop was on the verge of being tough bec it was overcooked and the pork belly was almost burnt. The dashi broth was tasty however they didn’t give us proper utensils to eat it. How do you eat the broth without a spoon? Then the desert was supposed to be a birthday cake but there’s nothing birthday about it. It looked like a cake they bought from Safeway. My brother in law had the creme brûlée for dessert and even that was messed up: the sugar on top was sooo thick and it was almost hard to crack.
I was really hoping for a great experience but unfortunately they failed to deliver 🤷🏼♀️ Our serve did acknowledge that the food took longer and she took off a few items from out bill
Service and food was delightful and glad to see Tribune Tavern back.
Great customer service and food.
Excellent it was a nice place to celebrate the new year
Lovely experience all around. Knew we were in for a treat when the sauce on shrimp cocktail was house made.
Friendly waiter. Good food. Fun atmosphere but a little pricey.
I would still recommend them but the service was very slow.
Unfortunately this was so disappointing. From the reception person to the servers the attitude was rude and gruff. Our waiter Matt was excellent but the rest of the team was subpar. Our soups were plated with no care, our plates were cleared only after asking multiple times. The menu was small and two entrees were sold out....no steak, no salmon, no mussels. The pork chop was extremely vinegary, the gnocchi was very disappointing— huge pieces of carrots and Brussels sprouts - not seasonal as promised . The salmon tartare was excellent. The braised short ribs were super fatty and the sauce was meh.
The wine list was very minimal and no wineries we had ever had. We got the most expensive bottle ($35) and was disappointed. The drinks were excellent and desserts good, as an downtown Oakland worker I’m hoping it improves.
We love Chop Bar and Longemare, hoping this restaurant in the family improves.
Excellent lunchtime service and food. I had the spinach salad along with a nice glass of pinot.
We waited OVER an hour to be served. Got there at noon, entrees arrived at 1:10 p.m. The French Onion soup was lukewarm and my salmon was overcooked. I didn't ask anybody else how their food was because we were all so agitated by the time the food arrived and it was consumed. The excuse for the delay was there were 5 other parties going on. Only thing is all the seats around us were unoccupied.
A lot of tasty drinks. Had the fried chicken, very delicious. Also had the pulled pork sandwich was ok. Service was good for lunch, but parking in downtown Oakland is difficult.
We had a great time and Micheal the bartender really made our evening special. We ate and drank a fair amount and were not surprised when the bill came and the $$$ price. Just wish there were more Happy hour drink and food items; since we were real early before 5 pm. We love to all eat out a lot but it can add up quickly. We tend to return to places that have good Happy hours to save on cost.
The salmon tartare was tasty, but the calamari with peppers was even better. My sister ordered one of the salads, the one that comes with pears. It was good, but it had way too much dressing on it. If you order that one, get the dressing on the side. The service was superb, but we may have gotten lucky on an early Friday evening.
Irish coffee was undrinkable. Place was empty on a night it should have been packed
Spinach salad with chicken spectacular
Very good food. Server was very nice and polite, and very informed of the menu! We had a great time!
For drinks this is a great place. For dinner, it was busy and hence slow. The food was mediocre. The space loud and uncomfortable.
Went for a business lunch with 5 people. We were seated at a half circle booth, with the seating on a single side. Terrible for conversation.
Our group of 7 went to celebrate a birthday at the Sunday brunch. Everyone was really happy with their food and great service. It's nice to go someplace where you don't have to yell to hear each other in a large group!
We started with onion soup, which was fairly good. We moved to brussel sprouts, which were no better than average. I had fettuccine, which I thought was quite good. My wife had the gnocchi, for which she didn't care. The gnocchi themselves were soft, almost squishy, and they were served with mediocre vegetables that didn't really go with gnocchi. I had a chocolate tart for dessert and it was excellent. The menu could be stronger; it has some strange combinations. Fish and chips, for instance, is served with bok choy. I'm all for innovation, but some things seemed a little weird.
We loved Tribune Tavern and were disappointed when they closed over 2 years ago, and were excited to hear they were reopening. We arrived at 6:45 on a Saturday night and the place was dead. It looked exactly like it did before. This was fine with me, but the place was empty. There were 2 people at the bar, and one other table was full. We sat at the bar. The bartender was very nice, but his service was confused, awkward, and a far cry from what we experienced in the past. I ordered a bourbon old fashioned, and my wife asked for a recommendation for a glass of wine. The old fashioned was good, though not performed as before, where they stirred the cocktail in a beaker and measured the temperature, but not a big deal. My wife didn't like her glass of wine, which was a Zinfandel, but unusual. She mentioned this to the bartender, and he brought another glass of wine, without enquiring what else she might like, and she liked the second glass even less, so kept the Zinfandel, as she didn't want to keep bothering about the wine. I always loved the pork chop here, so I wanted to order that. It was listed as having a sauce with gorgonzola in it, and I'm lactose intolerant, an it also had mashed sweet potatoes, which apparently had cream in them. I first asked to hold the sauce, and the bartender said, "You won't like it." I told him I love pork chops, and I'm sure I'd like it without the sauce. I then asked for a substitute for the sweet potatoes, and they were unable to provide any starch, from any dish, that didn't have cream in it, so they offered Brussels sprouts as a substitute, and I said that would be fine. As it turns out, they served the pork chop with some sort of chutney, and it was very good. The presentation of the plate with the new sauce and Brussels sprouts very nice as well. There were two games on the TVs, and the host asked the bartenders multiple times to stop watching the games, but they apparently didn't have much to do. It was a sad return.
Great place but the lighting is way too bright to have great ambience. If they dimmed all the lights, people could relax their computer-weary eyes and the "tavern" would be mellow, sexy, and more Oakland. Currently the lighting is more akin to Applebees, so we're hoping they go with a classic steak house vibe going forward.
Great service, great cocktails, and iconic building.
Absolutely delightful! Food was amazing! Bone marrow was so delicious! Glad our server Izzy talked us into it.
The Tribune Tavern was nice. However I had the Salmon and it wasn't prepared properly. The waiter said the Beans that were apart of the dish was Garnish. But it was more like a Soup dish with the salmon on Top. Wasn't worth $25.00 dollars. But I liked the interior of the place.
I think the food was good but can be better to keep Up with competition in terms of creativity and taste. Steak was well done when we wanted medium. Chicken was a bit raw in the piece I brought home. Server was excellent and we were allowed to stay as long as we wanted which we loved!
We had sat at the bar and had a great dinner and drink before the restaurant closed. We were anxious to try it again after it reopened. Invited friends and we’re somewhat disappointed. The ambience was ok and the dining room was empty for a Friday night. The food was inventive and delicious, however our waiter was slow, messed up in our drink order and rarely checked in on us. Hoping it would be a new “go to” place but not impressed. .
Salad was overpriced and underwhelming, wilted Kate, bland dressing. Way too expensive for weekday lunch so no wonder it wasn’t crowded. I had looked forward to the reopening but was so disappointed, as was our entire party.
I really enjoyed everything about this place, and will go again with friends!
So happy to see the is back in action. I had the chicken and bacon sandwich and it was delicious. The fries were cooked perfectly and the staff was all very attentive.
I will be back as often as I am able.
Great spot for a business lunch or happy hour.
Delighted Tribune Tavern is back
service fun and wonderful. food a little too "creative". initially fun taste became confusing and overspiced
Fantastic waitstaff. Tavern just reopened so everyone was very attentive. We ordered the French onion soup, Tavern chopped greens & “da burger”. The soup was ok, but a bit one-note, lacking the complexity of good French onion soup. The gratinee was provolone, which is odd on something billed as French. The salad was a total bomb..tasteless, anemic tomatoes, nothing “chopped”, & the baby kale leaves were still connected by thick stems. The original Tribune Tavern had the best burger I’d ever tasted so there were high hopes. “Da burger” was good, but no match for its predecessor. Bun is crumbly, but the flavor of the meat is good. Fries are good. Portions DEFINITELY smaller than they used to be. Felt like everything was a tad on the chintzy side - small servings of condiments, burger accoutrements.
I want to like this place -cool space/location-but the food was not good
Was not expect to have buffet only choice for lunch on Sunday. I was hoping to try their ala cart menu but because it was Mother's Day. Open table should have let me know when I booked for a table. Prime rib were delicious and the service was excellent.
