We went to a friend's barbecue. Nice atmosphere and beautiful views. Great alternative to regular city parks. They have nice, clean children's play area as well as fishing and boating areas. Good, clean, outdoors fun!
My family always has a good time at Hana Japan. Perhaps the last reviewer had a bad day because of the 6-8 times we've been in the last 2 years or so, we have never had an issue with service or seating. Most Japanese-oriented restaurants that cook at your table practice the full table policy so it shouldn't come as a surprise. We find it interesting and look forward to meeting new families. We are a family of five so we have not had to deal with the auto tip issue. The food is cooked well. I get the vegetarian bowl while my children and husband usually go for chicken and shrimp dishes. They are always tasty. The chefs are the best. Entertaining, engaging and skilled in their craft. We always have fun at Hana Japan!
Ozuma's food is always well-made and made with fresh ingredients. Very tasty. The service is good and the prices are reasonable. I'm a fan of crisp, sauteed veggies and my husband prefers the teriyaki chicken.
Emeril IS New Orleans! You simply CANNOT visit New Orleans and not go to one of Emeril's Restaurants! It's beautifully appointed with a classic New Orleans atmosphere. Put on your dressy duds and get ready for a flavorful meal. Keep in mind the name of the restaurant so you'll be able to keep the prices in perspective because it's not the place for coupons or 'cheap' eats. The service is expectedly superb.
The atmosphere is classic New Orleans and the service is first-rate hospitable. The food was good but not great because the flavors were not strong enough. I used to eat here often when I lived on this side of the country and the good is definitely not as good as I remembered. Nevertheless, it is still worth a visit.
Take a stroll down Bourbon Street and when you get to the little spot with the most laughter and dancing, go in. The sell pizza by the slice and - of course, frozen 'confections' in every flavor & liquor combination you can think of. Classic, low-cost New Orleans treat.
Before you get your prance on down Canal Street on the hunt for beads and hollers, take the Algiers ferry over to Mardi Gras World and get a tour of the behind- the-scenes action. The huge warehouse stores all of the massive floats they use during the parades. You'll get a set of beads and a slice of King's cake. BIG fun!
Cuisine's is a nice addition to the Jack London Square neighborhood. The food was tasty, the atmosphere welcoming, and the service exceptional. Their weekend brunch is worth the drive and parking fee. The menu selections have something for everyone - veggies, meat-lovers and in-between.
This location is the East Bay version of Levende in SF's Mission District. The food was good but not great and the service was mediocre. They have live music some nights and a brunch on Saturdays. Prices are reasonable.
Oyster Reef has the total package in a great restaurant - great food, great service, great jazz music, great views! The prawns and scallops platter was so tasty, we ordered an extra one to take home for later!
