WHAT IS OAKLAND RESTAURANT WEEK?
Oakland Restaurant Week is YOUR opportunity to experience what the trendy culinary scene everyone is talking about. For 10 days (January 19—29, 2017), Oakland restaurants will offer special prix-fixe lunch and/or dinner menus at $20, $30, $40, and $50 price points. That’s two weekends of awesome deals to feed your inner foodie.
Oakland Restaurant Week is in its seventh year and we are proud to have American Express be our presenting sponsor. American Express' support has elevated Oakland Restaurant Week to the next level.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
No tickets, passes or coupons necessary! You can simply participate by dining at a participating restaurant between the days of January 19—29. 2017. Be sure to ask for the Oakland Restaurant Week menu when you dine and make sure the special menu you have in mind is for the time of day you’re dining at.
ARE THERE ANY SWEEPSTAKES DURING RESTAURANT WEEK?
Of course! This year is all about Lucky 7s, so you know we are going to have some great prizes. The first way to win is to visit the Oakland Restaurant Week page and take a spin on our ORW Lucky 7s Game. Every day we'll be giving away $50 gift cards from our sponsor restaurants. If you want to be entered into the drawing for our grand prize Oakland Foodie Weekend featuring a 2 night stay at the Claremont Club & Spa- a Fairmont Hotel, make sure you are seated at one of our sponsor restaurants during the 7PM hour every night during Oakland Restaurant Week. One of those lucky diners will be picked for the grand prize. See here for complete sweepstakes rules.
