Cheeseboard Pizza

Reviewed By dwisland - Saint Louis, Missouri

Cheeseboard is a happening. Music changes daily as does the pizza. No choosing toppings, no delivery, no worries. What fresh and organic combination of cheeses and veggies they choose is always amazing. Our latest visit offered butternut squash on the pizza, the visits before than had peaches. Don't let the daily toppings or the huge line deter you - this is verifiably one of the most popular pizza places in America. And, always ask for a side of Green Sauce ($4 and worth x

The view is great and the restaurant is nice. A little run down but overall still in decent shape. The service was good although at points felt overwhelming.... This is a place that still grinds pepper and grates parm on your dish. The food was very good and apparently made not in mass but to order.

Hotel Mac Restaurant

Reviewed By Mike R - California

My lady had mussels and it was a very generous number. If you order this during happy hour it is $4. We ordered later and it was $8. I had shrimp and pasta in some excellent sauce that was extraordinarily delicious. In addition, there were five shrimp breaded with some tasty and spicy breading. The dish had a weird name that I cannot recall.

La Strada Italian Restaurant

Reviewed By rjbouch - Fair Oaks, California

Yeah, I ate too much at lunch. Their portions are pretty big and I probably ate too much bread... but the bread was really good.

It's a good place. Sure, I've had lots of better Italian meals but I paid more.

I'll be doing some work in San Pablo so I suspect I'll go back a few more times.

Rivoli Restaurant

Rivoli strives to be a hands on, moderately priced restaurant with simple and creative food, carefully selected wines and comfortable service in a warm and lively atmosphere. Rivoli’s distinction comes from the heart and soul of its owners and staff. The menu relies on what is seasonal, local and fresh, using mostly organic produce, sustainably caught fish and naturally raised meats and poultry. The wines are selected for their affinity with the food, and offer the best values from the cooler regions of California and the Old World. The dining room staff provides friendly and attentive service and the chefs and cooks are skilled artisans of their craft.

Came to celebrate another family birthday at a favorite local spot.

Wendy Brucker's dishes continue to deliver time after time. Especially liked the lobster souffle and lamb ragu over house made ravioli.

For those who haven't been here, expect delicious food and great service in a cozy dining area facing a lovely outside garden.

We were in the mood for a "real" breakfast and came here. It's a classic diner--nothing fancy--with good basic food. Our server was great. My eggs-over-medium arrived almost raw--a lot of the white was still raw--and she was great about replacing them promptly.

Assemble

Located in the magnificent former power plant of a Ford automobile factory, the Boilerhouse serves fresh, fast, local, delicious food on the waterfront. Enjoy exceptional value, great tastes and, of course, our amazing view of the San Francisco skyline and the Bay. Most simply, our concept is Slow food flavor at fast food prices. We invite guests to grab a quick healthy meal on the go when they’re hiking the Bay Trail or taking a break from the office--or to stay as long as they like and enjoy our waterfront setting while they linger over a meal and drinks. Boilerhouse recipes change frequently to reflect the season and the plentiful local markets. We use local, all-natural ingredients, and organic when possible. We serve lunch, pub, dinner and brunch, all under $10. We welcome your feedback as we are constantly developing and improving. It's wonderful to be part of the Bay Area community, and to be bringing new crowds to the historic Craneway, the birthplace of Rosie the Riveter.

We went to Assemble for brunch and had a delightful table outside overlooking the Bay, Brooks island and distant Oakland. The menu was somewhat eclectic; egg dishes that one expects with brunch, along with New Orleans favorites (beignets and shrimp and grits) and comfort food (chicken pot pie). The cocktail menu looked interesting as well. Only disappointment was the service. It may have been our particular server - but it seemed understaffed and we had to wait quite a while - even for water and coffee.

Zachary's Chicago Pizza

Reviewed By Danielle D - Berkeley, California

We ordered a half baked deep dish for take out. We got the Spinach and Mushroom which was a hit. This pie includes spinach, mushrooms, cheese and tomato sauce. This was easy to finish baking in the oven at home. With gentle treatment the crust stayed together and sat on the rack just fine.
