In the Historic District of downtown, this venue overlooks Oaklandac2s original buildings of 1876, tree lined streets and brick covered sidewalks. B has an urban dining room yet warm, rustic feel with tables of resin and bar of copper. On the exterior, a bricked patio with outside dining wraps around the restaurant along the quaint historic streets of downtown.
Looks can be deceiving. Place looks nice, menu pictures on the web look delicious, but the food itself? Eingh, I could take it or leave it. The real issue I have is with their management style. They used to be open for lunch and dinner which is good for the businesses around downtown Oakland, then they offered a 50% discount through Living Social so I thought, how cool let me purchase this deal. As soon as they ran that promotion, B changed their hours to dinner only. Because they don't honor coupons for lunch, take-out, delivery or happy hour, it means I have to hang out in Oakland until late or come back from SF to get the deal. In the end, I just lost the money. And I tell everyone I know, B you suck.
I recently dined at B Restaurant for a b-day party. The staff was friendly and the food was awesome. Even though we were a party of 13, we were able to all be seated at the same table. B Restaurant is ideal for date night or a special celebration. With ease, I give B Restaurant an excellent rating and will dine there again.
