Great Pepperpot – I've had both lunch and brunch here. The brunch was just ok, although the service was terrific which helped a lot since we had two small children with us. The lunch was fantastic--our server was super nice and the food was delicious. I LOVE the pepperpot soup.
One note to the reviewer who said this was too expensive for middle America--it's not in middle America; it's in the SF Bay Area, which is not a cheap place to eat...or to do a lot of things. Yes, I'd be horrified at the prices if this was in Kentucky or Michigan, but given the quality & location the pricing seems pretty right.
To expensive for middle America. We were here to celebrate and ninety year young birthday, the waitress never brought out the bread. We are talking senior cititzens here over seventy most of them.. She was alof and disoriented.. we were hungry..The food was ok, not really Top Chef, but Top Chef pricey, the wine was a half glass, not cool at all, the waitress said it was a large glass, whatever? it was nine dollars, I expected a full glass, very nicely decorated, maybe that is what we paid for...I could have had a glass of wine at home if that is what I expected.. Overall I was not happy..need to change menu to be more reasonable for middle america. OVER PRICED.
Find Carribean and Southern food and campy-charming South Florida-style decor at this quirky Jack London Square blockbuster. – Joie de Vivre Hospitality spared no expense on the marquee façade of Miss Pearl's Jam House, but it's the whimsical, nautical details of the interior that set this Southern/Caribbean restaurant at Oakland's Jack London Square apart. Campy sea-tchochkes like seahorse sculptures and stuffed seagulls match water glasses, plates and menu covers fashioned from recycled glass found at the beach. Stacks of old books, vintage handbags and leopard print hats are illuminated inside recessed-glass curiosity cabinets, and couture illustrations deck the walls. The menu packs a wallop with plenty of crunch, fiery spices and fresh produce sourced from the nearby farmers' market. Dishes like jerk chicken and seafood specialties come from the American coasts and islands of the Gulf of Mexico, while plates like crispy Thai sticks-spring rolls stuffed with pork, rock shrimp and shitake mushrooms served with a thai herb-peanut slaw and chile mint dip provide variety.
