<br>À Côté is a small-plates restaurant in Oakland's charming Rockridge district. Cozy tables surround large communal tables in both the main dining room and on the sunny patio to create a festive atmosphere. Small plates reflecting the best of seasonal Mediterranean cuisine are served family-style by a friendly and knowledgeable staff. Menu items are paired with a carefully chosen selection of over 40 wines by the glass as well as a highly diverse bottled wine menu. Specialty drinks featuring fresh fruits, rare botaniques and fine liqueurs are featured at the bar.

"Once again the good food, good service, and good environment of A Cote wowed us. We have been to this restaurant a few times and I must say that every time the experience is excellent and thoroughly enjoyable. I highly recommend to just focus on the small dishes OR order the larger ones with the purpose of sharing so that you can get a good array of all the excellent tastes. Do not skip on the mussels an the frites!"

"It's very rare that I find a restaurant worthy of 5 stars.... well Bourbon and Beef has done it for me! Although we were expecting it to be a "good" what we found was one where the amazing food, the excellent service, and the awesome environment all contributed to an A+++ experience. I highly recommend to go there with a good number of friends, order a lot of different dishes and share them family style vs. ordering individually.... otherwise you might miss out on some of the amazing dishes. In terms of 'musts,' you have to try the spicy tortolini, the chile relleno, and the liver (yes.... the liver!), but in all reality, you can't go wrong with anything! All 15 dishes we ordered were just amazing. Can't wait to go back!"
