“Life itself is the proper binge.”
― Julia Child

You only get one start to every day, so you better do it right. At Portal, our chefs are serving up a hearty and creative menu from brunch till dinner -- and even the NY Post is raving about us!

 

From Burgers to Brussels Sprouts, there’s something for every taste. But the good times don’t stop in the kitchen -- behind our bar, you’ll find one of Oakland’s best selections of beer on tap.

 

So come on down to the patio, bring your family and friends, (or bring a perfect stranger, we won't mind) and enjoy our view of Lake Merritt. Your taste buds will be glad you did.

Portal is a place that reflects and celebrates the character and pride of our community. Our daily mission is to be a neighborhood meeting spot that welcomes guests as part of our own extended circle of friends. 

It all starts with creative recipes, fresh, local ingredients, great flavors, and talented chefs & cooks.   For us, it's literally all about the food. (Well, truth be told, our amazing bar team really gets into great brews too!)

Below are a few dishes that stand out as our guests' favorites. If you're dining with us for the first time, these are delicious recommendations.
