Oakland Restaurants

Oakland California Restaurants


Downtown Oakland, California and the surrounding San Francisco Bay area are great for casual dining, upscale cuisine and everything in between. The Bayside Hotel Oakland is near the Oakland East Bay’s premier restaurants, where one can savor cuisines from around the world and drink in the magnificent waterfront views.

Guests of The BEST WESTERN PLUS Bayside Hotel Oakland can walk to Quinn’s Lighthouse Restaurant, situated on the marina at Embarcadero Cove, or grab a sandwich from the Port Deli.

For those who wish to venture out, take our complimentary hotel shuttle to Jack London Square or Downtown for a wide selection of dining options.

No matter where you dine in Oakland, the next memorable meal is never farther than a stone fruit’s throw away. In West Oakland you can find great soul food, like chicken and waffles at Brown Sugar Kitchen; but drive just 10 minutes and you’ll come upon great Seoul Food, on a stretch of Telegraph Avenue north of 27th Street called Koreatown.

From Jack London Square on the waterfront to the Oakland-Berkeley border is about four miles, but the trip amounts to a global tour. You start at Bocanova, a Pan-American outpost for Peruvian-style ceviche or Brazilian feijoada; then wheel through town to Le Cheval, where you can get a bowl of Vietnamese beef noodle soup; and continue on to Dopo on Piedmont Avenue, where Jon Smulewitz puts out plump agnolotti and other artful pastas that would make the pickiest of nonnas proud.

Bocanova   • 1.7 mi
55 Webster St, Oakland, CA 94607, (510) 444-1233
One of the first restaurants to land in the new Jack London Square last September, it is run by the chef Rick Hackett, one of those Chez Panisse alumni. Unlike MarketBar, Mr. Hackett’s Mediterranean restaurant in the recently revamped ferry building in San Francisco, Bocanova looks south. The menu, it turns out, was inspired by a family meal – the restaurant staff dinner shared before service – at MarketBar. A couple of staff members made dishes from their South American homelands; Mr. Hackett was impressed and Bocanova was born.

The long menu divides the tapas-sized dishes into sections based on kitchen provenance: the pantry, the raw bar, the fryer, the stoves, the ovens, the grill, the rotisserie. I ordered a glass of Argentine malbec from the mostly South American wine list and dug into the first plate that landed on my table: deviled eggs (one of the most popular dishes on the menu, according to my waiter) stacked high with Dungeness crab and topped with chipotle aioli, giving it a refreshing yet mildly spicy kick. Scallops from the Sea of Cortez followed, perfectly seared, wading in a shallow pool of rich, brown Brazilian curry. The sweet potato and chipotle gratin arrived last, offering a blend of subtle sweetness and bold smokiness.

Chef-owner Jon Smulewitz and his staff create each day’s menu using fresh fish and seasonal vegetables to celebrate regional Italian cooking and then add lesser-known, seasonally driven dishes to the mix. Patrons can always find pizzas and excellent lasagna, but the real treats are the more obscure antipasti and house-made pasta dishes. Don’t expect heavily sauced or cheese-laden offerings; these creations are elegantly prepared, deceptively simple and dead-on delicious. Some recent favs: radicchio and ricotta tortelloni, crostone of braised octopus with saffron and pesce crudo (think Italian sashimi).

  • Great Place to Stay

    Great Place to Stay

    I am a frequent business traveler to Oakland, and sometimes I stay there up to 4 nights a week. I had a great stay at the Executive Inn in Oakland, CA.

    They have a great property with exceptional service for a good price. I have had a great experience. I really like the free shuttle service. It saves me allot of money. I also take advantage of the breakfast every morning. Overall, I would recommend this hotel to anyone planning a stay in Oakland.

  • I would like to send a sincere word of thanks to EXECUTIVE INN and SUITES. . .

    I would like to send a sincere word of thanks to EXECUTIVE INN and SUITES. . .

    Your staff, was incredibly supportive and went above and beyond all of my expectations. I also wanted to give specific thanks to Bradley who ensured the front desk supported all of our needs. Without Bradley and your team of professionals our San Francisco Fleet Week mission would not have been possible.

    Due to your team's efforts we were able to provide critical force protection for the $17 billion Aircraft Carrier, USS CARL VINSON while she was anchored in the San Francisco Bay. We have received multiple accolades for our flawless execution and I wanted to pass that on your team, the people that were instrumental in making this operation so successful.

    Thanks again for taking care of us. I look forward to using your establishment during all of our future missions and training!

  • Great Staff & Accommodations!

    Great Staff & Accommodations!

    We could not be more pleased with how well your people accommodated our needs for our meeting. Everyone was very pleased with the accommodations and how everyone at the hotel was so courteous. We will be coming back to the Executive Inn! If you would want to use us as a reference we would be more than happy to recommend you. Thanks again - in these times it is really helpful to have a good meeting and you were a great part of that.

  • I would like to express my gratitude for your presence at our Enlisted Person and Civilian of the Quarter recognition breakfasts!

    I would like to express my gratitude for your presence at our Enlisted Person and Civilian of the Quarter recognition breakfasts!

    We greatly appreciate your ongoing support of the Coast Guard. Our quarterly recognition event is one way we honor our loyal and productive members. Once again, I would like to thank you and the Executive Inn & Suites for their generosity. We look forward to continuing our relationship as community partners.

  • Wonderful Experience!

    Wonderful Experience!

    Some months ago I met with your Director of Sales, Michael Weber, CMP to discuss accommodations for a forthcoming reunion - the Class of 1955 from Alameda High School. Michael could not have been more helpful, and as a result many of our classmates stayed at the Inn this past weekend.

    When I mentioned to Michael that we would like an area for a gathering of classmates the night before the reunion, which was held at Scott's at Jack London Square on Saturday, he suggested using the lounge area for no-host cocktails and that 'Howie' would be our bartender. This worked perfectly, and Howie was an incredible bartender and did an excellent job and was very personable with the guests.

    On behalf of the Alameda High 55th Reunion Committee, I want to thank you and every one of your staff who helped make this weekend such a great success. It was greatly appreciated.
