Why go? The kitchen is inspired by Bay Area artisans and is complimented by a spirited bar offering house-crafted cocktails, with great views of the Bay.

What to order? The food lineup is conducive to sharing, so we suggest beginning with a platter of oysters and some canapes. The grass-fed Beef Steak is a star for us, as well as their coconut cake for dessert.

Pipsqueak tip Limewood is now open for weekend brunch, a great stopover for those heading to the east bay and beyond.
