For such a highly touted and expensive restaurant this was a let down. The food was predictable and boring. It's a corporate foot print that I wish I'd missed.

My friend and I chose this place because it seemed to have the most options for Sunday brunch with a reasonable price at Jack London Square. The restaurant was not overly busy, which was great for us because we wanted time and space to catch up. We were seated at the window and the view was beautiful (it helped that... More

All day American dining, they have great choices for early/late lunch and good choices for dinner. During the daytime you have an awesome view of the pier and docks.

Kincaids is right on the Oakland Estuary. Most tables get a view of the sailboats going up and down the estuary which is nice. Kincaid's food is good but not superb. The wait staff is friendly but service is not 5 star. This is a corporate restaurant which does everything OK, but nothing perfect. Because of the location, prices are... More

This was a great dining experience right on the water. Beautiful view! I didn't care for the fish I ordered and they replaced it with a delicious red snapper with no hassle. 😀 The service was stellar! The mashed sweet potatoes and calamari and artichokes were excellent. The decadent chocolate cake was EVERYTHING with a great cup of coffee!!!

This place was excellent. Went here for my son's 28th birthday. My son made the reservations online. My wife and I arrived first and were seated. What an amazing view over the estuary and pier. I got the lobster bisque soup and one of the daily specials with Red Snapper. Wow! Both of these were great tasting. Since I got... More

We had a business dinner here and I was pleasantly surprised by the view from our window seat. The sunset was stunning. We ordered dinner, pan roasted seafood with fettuccine and Mahi Mahi and the food was delicious. If you want to impress choose Kincaids.

Brunch Offering was very nice... Seafood Louie was refreshing and good value. Fish and Chips were great. Brunch items cooked to order as requested. Loved the Bloody Mary Bar.... Miss one of my favorite bartenders (Regina) and the lavender cosmos but I hear she's moved on to another opportunity. Great view, reasonable prices, and loved our server. Always a pleasant... More

One of my favorite oakland restaurants for years. Great location on waterfront, good variety on menu from appetizers to burgers to comfort food to fish to steak/chops. Bar side or restaurant side with window seating. good service and reasonably priced.
