    We were delightfully surprised with our dining experience especially as we are moving into the building and contemplating some collabrative projects. The basic menu covered the usual suspects but their added menu really shined-it was more on the small plate offerings and we tasted them all-appealed to the all the senses. The selection was very representative, the ingredients were imaginative and well paired, the compositions were thoughfully crafted and the tastes were balanced-all in all-stellar. Kudos to the Chef and his TEAM!! Front of the house deserved and big shoutout. Our messages were answered promptly, we were seated per our quirky requests. Staff was friendly and attentive. They were obsessed with clean and crumb free tables-which I LOVED. Food was paced and dishes were cleared promptly-service was seamless. Clean and pleasingly appointed environment including the biggest handicapable stall I have ever seen. Definitely a neigborhood gem and special occasion celebrations featuring live music.

    Impeccable food. Everything we had was delicious -- from the cocktails to the chopped salad, carrots (delicious!), lamb 3 ways -- and the piece de resistance, the sticky toffee pudding! The outdoor dining was in a bit of a wind tunnel, but it was my choice to sit out there. Could definitely have been accomodated indoors had I so chosen.

    Nice time overall, but my flat-iron steak was riddled with gristle, and the quantity of potatoes was meager. Prices overall were at the top end for the level of service. Will not go back unless someone else is paying!

    Tribune is a gem - easily the best new restaurant in the East Bay, if not the entire Bay Area! The food punches way above it's weight. Fine dining presentation and quality, but in a relaxed, smart and casual setting. Service is exceptional. Cocktails and wine list are on point. I've been twice and can't wait to go back soon. Highly, highly recommend.

We are fortunate to have such a great restaurant come onto the new dining scene in Oakland. The staff are personable and professional, complementing the food with excellent service.

    What a gem of a place. I am an Oakland resident and I was just thrilled to be there. The only reason I gave it four instead of five stars was because I felt like the soup Should’ve been warmer and my steak was a little bit tough. Flavors were fantastic.

    The food was just average. The pork chop was overcooked, although a huge piece. But it was accompanied by the most skimpy amount of veggies and puréed carb. My sisters steak was very highly brined, so was tender and salty. And served with mushrooms (which included TWO tiny pieces of mushroom). I don’t know, quality just didn’t seem up to par for price. Excellent waitstaff.

    I went here on a date and we had the Curried Mussels, Cesar Salad. Chopped Salad and Chocolate Mousse. The mussels were fresh and juicy but the flavor was missing something - not really well balanced. The chopped salad didn’t have a good balance of blue cheese to other flavors. It really needs a bit like walnuts. The Caesar was fine - I would have added a couple sardines and croutons. The chocolate mousse was delicious. Overall a paint by numbers flavor experience on the salads. Perhaps the prix fixe menu is more interesting or other dishes - I would try this place again but not the salads. They were SUPER attentive and the waitstaff. The ambience was alright - the jazz musicians a nice touch but their style didn’t really resonate with me that night. The decor lacked the nuanced finishing touches and felt sparse or low budget. My date liked it well enough.

    The food was excellent and thoughtfully prepared, however wait times in between courses were noticeably long. The staff were kind and attentive but informal - I did not feel the FOH standard of service aligned with the quality of food coming from the BOH. The wine and beverage list was very uninspired and I felt the restaurant could benefit from a beverage director. Ultimately I would recommend Tribune and am happy to see such high quality food available in Oakland, however it's unfortunate that I still have to go to the city if I want to be impressed by high standards of hospitality.

    Wonderful server helped make our evening great. Loved the giant chopped salad, potato/leek soup and Brussels sprouts. Tables are spread farther apart than in the Before Times, which is great for health/safety, but noise level is still a bit higher than I'd like. This is a wonderful venue, and an important part of Oakland's history.

    My wife and I had been looking forward to dining here and overall they did not disappoint. We were happy with the experience - namely the food and service - and plan on going back. We ordered the caesar salad, duck liver mousse (special), pork chop, and fish (black cod). For drinks we got the Lover's Lane and Alameda Almond. Food: Really enjoyed the caesar salad. We split it. It was a little small for two but ultimately were glad that we had more room for the entrees. The duck liver mousse was rich and had a nice balance of sweet and savory, as it came with a pomegranate jelly (or something). The pork chop and black cod were simply fantastic. Perfectly cooked and great flavor. The pork chop had some kind of jus sauce that was nice, but you didn't even need it. Drinks: Lover's Lane and Alameda Almond we very nice. Not too sweet. We were a little disappointed with the amount of drink per serving. Service: Friendly, attentive, and helpful. I should note that we did have the benefit of eating on the early side (6:30-8pm) and they weren't very busy. Atmosphere (sat inside, past the bar): Stayed inside because we wanted something more intimate, but we walked past the heat lamps for the outdoor dining and it felt like they were working very well. My wife thought it was too dark in our section and she's obviously always right. Outside from the lighting, there wasn't anything that stood out either way.

    Tribune is a beautiful historic downtown Oakland dining experience. The dining room is classic but modern and the team running Tribune pays close attention to every detail. There is live jazz on Sunday nights that draws a diverse, trendy, artistic, crowd. It is a quintessential Oakland experience. I can't wait to go back.

    Date night here was perfect. We were sitting in a little alcove just for the two of us. The service was excellent. We heard that the staff had all been trained at fine dining restaurants and they want to recreate that level of service in a more trendy,casual environment. Tasty food! Great drinks!

    We went at 5:30 on a Friday night so it was quiet and not very crowded. The Brussel sprouts, pork chop, and sticky-toffee pudding were absolutely amazing! The staff was extremely nice and willing to chat with us about the restaurant and even entertained my mom's crazy ideas of how they can add to the ambiance. Overall, we enjoyed our experience.

    We went out for a dinner date. It was quite expensive. A cheese burger being $22.50. We sat outside and the vibe is a little end of the world / desolate. Definitely, felt lonely and not really relaxed sitting outside. The heaters were great. The service was great. The food was good. I would sit inside next time (when it's not covid). Would I go back? Yes - when it's not Covid. The inside ambience is beautiful as is the bar. The restaurant was lovely, service was great, food was good. Dining outside left something to be desired.
