Soizic Bistro • 1.9 mi
300 Broadway , Oakland, CA Tel. 510.251.8100
A seriously phenomenal neighborhood style restaurant near Jack London Square in Oakland, Soizic does California cuisine like few others. It’s moderatly priced and relaxingly comfortable, best of all, if you go there a few times, you’ll be treated famously by the owners and waitstaff. The food is simple, yet innovative and some of the house specialties are just amazing–try the lamb in maderia sauce, even if you don’t particularly like game because this is probably the best lamb we’ve had. The wine list also compliments the cuisine beautifully and make sure you save some room for the desserts.
