Spinning Bones is a California rotisserie restaurant that specializes in roasted meats with bold flavors. The focus of the menu is slow roasted meats: poultry, pork and beef, rotating on spits over high heat, and basting in their own natural juices. The rest of the menu is comprised of shareable appetizers, vegetarian side dishes, and healthier salads with vegan dressings. The principle of the menu is straight-forward: quality products that are prepared minimally and cooked thoughtfully. Spinning Bones is a brunch and dinner spot for Alameda people by Alameda people. It is a casual neighborhood restaurant open 6 days-a-week for sit down dining, take-out, and large party catering. Spinning Bones strives to be a common area for the residents of the East Bay to come together and engage in conversation and comradery over great food and drink.

The potato salad was not what I am used to, so didn't like it, but ordered the fries, which were very good.

The service was great however all our food came out lukewarm and pretty salty. I wish they had more acid to cut the saltiness of the food. We showed up at lunch time almost at opening maybe it was an off day or maybe we got leftovers from the night before but food should be hot. We order their 3 little pigs and everything was barely warm. My son had their bento chicken box and the rice was so hard it wasn’t edible. He only ate the cucumber since the chicken was really dry and didn’t have a sauce. We know it wasn’t the wait staff that let our food sit and get cold it was the prep. We sat inside and watch our food being prepared, they weren’t busy and the food took a really long time to heat up, it should have been hot. Again burger was very tasty and it was hot.

We went on a Wednesday, late afternoon and scheduled a reservation, but arrived earlier than expected. They were very accommodating and allowed us not to wait till our scheduled time. The food we selected was great and portions were the right size. Definitely will go back.

We always love to eat here and order to go, a little pricey but it’s worth it! Not to mention, service is always on top, this is the only restaurant that asked if you have any allergies. The chocolate cake dessert is to die for.

We each had a different meat plate, Double Dutch, St. Louis Ribs, and Black Pepper Beef. They were all super tender and really delicious. The portions are surprisingly big--not coming out hungry from there. We ordered a side, the slaw, which was OK but a bit watery, and also, I didn't realize that the Pepper Beef already comes with the slaw, which the waiter could have mentioned. I'd order a different side next time. But overall, had a really good time with some very tasty food.

I've been here a couple of times for the burger, meats, and restaurant week special. My favorite thing here is the burger with fries. It's delicious, high-quality, and the fries are amazing. The meats are tasty but don't stand out as much as the price tag.

We had the chips and dip of the day as well as the corn fritters (omg, so good I got an extra order to go). For our mains we had the Three Little Pigs (pictured) and the Peppered Beef (tri-tip) and it was all cooked tender and tasty. The pulled pork was my favorite, mixed with cabbage and onions (I think), and the flavors were really good with the bbq sauce they make.

We tried the exceptional tofu salad, rainbow rice and the tres meats platter. Rotisserie chicken was a stand out. Kitchen was kind to send us complimentary chips & dip due to wait. Our server was the only person working during a very busy lunch; she was fantastic and kept her sense of humor despite being slammed. As with many restaurants these days, we relaxed and enjoyed being able to dine outside. Hope this place will be able to hire more help to support our gem waitress!

The corn appetizers were also splendid. There were a few glitches. The server quite adamant that one of the non alcoholic beverages didn’t have sugar/sweetener when it clearly did. (A lot, even.) Another drink that was meh as it somehow came up with a melon flavor even though the ingredients were lemon and cucumber. An unfortunate combo of ingredients? or a bartender who made an oopsie. Not enough to make a fuss but unexpectedly poor on the mixed drink side. The edamame wasn’t beloved either. So overall it was well worth it and I’ll go back for sure, was just a bit surprised that anything wasn’t perfect!

None of who can do “spicy”. Best French fries I have ever had- and I am counting French Laundry. Tofu salad good, best to like ginger if you order. Salmon salad lovely! The burgers are massive and were consumed happily with a side of potato salad that I did not get to try because it was gone. Kids bento a SERIOUS highlight. Such good value for price. We will return for the hot chocolate.

I wish our server would’ve suggested ordering less because we ordered double the amount needed for the 2 of us. Chicken was decent but dry in the middle and the ribs did not fall off the bone as I expect good ribs to do. Flavors were good but didn’t blow my mind. We would go back, it’s still a great addition to Alameda. 3.5 stars.

Overall, outstanding experience. Restaurant staff were friendly and accommodating, the food was awesome. Everything (except for the potato salad) was fantastic. Bacon Edamame, Corn Fritters, Chicken Lickin’, Tsukune Sando, Trip Triple and Chicken Sandwich were all amazing. Had both indoor and outdoor seating, was very clean and casual/elegant space.
