Top Restaurants in Oakland


Our residents may speak over 125 languages, but in the kitchen, we come together as one. In a city as multicultural as Oakland, our recipes come from a deep sense of place. Our world-class restaurants, eateries, pop-ups, food trucks, breweries, and bars are love letters to the homes left behind, the homes built here, and the re-imagined cuisines that grew from both. Our food is a celebration of the different cultures that give The Town its flavor.

Discover Local Gems


Oakland is home to hundreds of locally-run restaurants that reflect our diverse community. Our East and South Asian communities have made a mark on our cuisine, offering delicious fusions and traditional dishes. And for homemade Filipino flavor, visitors must try Senor Sisig!

Our black-owned eateries offer soul food classics, innovative Afro-Brazilian dishes, authentic Ethiopian, and so much more.

If you’re craving Latin flavors, our Hispanic-owned eateries are guaranteed to deliver the best of taste! Savor authentic Oaxacan mole at Agave Uptown or enjoy a bowl of pozole verde at Bombera Oakland. For a Dominican twist on mouth-watering seafood boils, there’s no better place than alaMar.

From traditional Vietnamese flavors to classic California fresh meals, eating local has never tasted this good.

Explore our Trails


Our favorite way of tasting Oakland is going down its trails. Getting a little hungry? Our Oakland Vegan Trail is sure to satisfy with options ranging from snacks and desserts to delicious bites from across the globe meals. From vegan Creole dishes with house-made Louisiana “links,” and taquerias with their own “carnitas,” to Singaporean noodles and vegan cherry cheesecakes, even carnivores will enjoy the journey. We have put together over 20 vegan places for you to check out.

For those looking for drinks, look no further than our Oakland Ale Trail. The trail was developed in collaboration with a variety of partners from Oakland’s craft beer industry to celebrate the strength and innovation of the city’s craft beer community. Enjoy the Oakland views from one of the breweries’ patios or if you prefer to sip from the comfort of your home/hotel room, our breweries also offer online ordering and pick-up.

Award-Winning Dining


Our food and drink scene is incredible! But don’t just take our word for it. Oakland is home to 20 Michelin-rated restaurants, including Horn Barbecue, Commis, Millennium, Taqueria El Paisa, MAMA Oakland, and Mägo. We also boast our fair share of James Beard nominated restaurants such as Wahpepah’s Kitchen and more.

Whether you’re looking for a quick bite, a casual spot to gather with friends, a romantic dinner, or an ice-cold beer, Oakland has just what you’re craving. Taste the food and drink that makes Oakland a top culinary destination in the U.S.!
