My friend recommended this place, having eaten here at night and that it was a short walk from the 19th BART station. He read that it was participating in Oakland Restaurant Week and we decided to check it out last Saturday.
Coincidentally, I made reservations on the same day as the Women's March. As we were riding the train to get there, the train system was delayed and I called the restaurant that we were running late. They were very understanding and would hold our table or we could reschedule to another day, if desired.
As we learned when we got there that the Oakland Restaurant Week was held on the weekdays, we went ahead to order from their brunch menu. My friend ordered biscuits and gravy while I ordered the chicken Sammie, which had crispy chicken. My friend said that they had good fried chicken. We enjoyed our meal and I shared the Kennebec (potato) chips, as my order was overflowed with them.
At the time we had our order taken, the place had not filled up yet but our waitress was forgetful and distracted? After telling her that I wanted the Sammie, she went away for a few minutes and then asked to remind what my order was. Another few minutes she did it again. She also forgot my friend's soda and he did not want to bother to remind her. She wasn't using anything to take our order.
During the course of our meal, our water glass was refilled. Our waitress came by to check on us.
After we finished our meal, the place filled up and asked for our check and we got it on the first request.
Despite the dicey service, if in the area, we would come back.
