Portal features unique appetizers, entrées, and contemporary beers. Our glass-enclosed patio is one of a kind in that it features handmade wooden benches and tables in a serene environment overlooking stunning views of Lake Merritt and the surrounding area.  We carry a wide variety of local and regional craft beers.  We take great pride in quality of ingredients, service, and customer satisfaction.  Our goal is to create a clean, relaxing, fun experience that will be in Oakland for years to come.


Portal will be open Monday 2/15 for President's Day Brunch at 11am! 

Portal is a beer garden with a large out-door patio with a breath taking view of the Lake Merritt.
