We booked this restaurant to try it during Oakland Restaurant Week, as I'd love to find a good and nice steak house in Oakland. We got to the hotel and took the escalator up to discover that this restaurant is more of an open area on the 2nd floor of the Oakland Marriott than a proper restaurant. For example, there's no real door, no decor, and no ambiance. It's attached to the Oakland Convention Center, and that night there was a girls' volleyball tournament being held in the convention center, so there were scores of running, screaming teenage girls and overwhelmed parents. There was no hostess or host, and only one waiter. The bartender was trying to help, but was useless. We waited 15 minutes to get anyone's attention, then left.
