I have been dining at Souls since it opened and I can honestly say that the food is delicious and the service has improved 80% since the new manager has taken over. My only complaint is checking out and paying for to go orders. I suggest two separate cashiers or at least an additional register for some one to assist... More

We went into the restaurant to have dinner. We were seated and sat for 45 minutes. No one assisted us or offered us water. People came in after us and they were helped before us. We finally decided to leave and no one said anything to us as we left. I have never been ignored like this before. I will... More

This restaurant is one of the best in oakland we have ever tried. The ox tails were outstanding nice serving size, and the baked chicken was very flavorful. The servers we very attentive and friendly. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone that likes home cooking.

My uncle and I visited Souls Restaurant the morning after attending a Warriors game. We arrived between breakfast and lunch. There were some guests in there during this normally dead time in the restaurant business. Also, the restaurant was under new management at the time of our visit. I ordered a spicy beef sausage and a side of rice. The... More

Our family chose this restaurant for breakfast to celebrate my Grandmother's 94th birthday. The food was great but the customer service was terrible & unacceptable, including the General Manager (GM) she was very rude. The restaurant was notified 3 wks in advance that our party would be 40+ guest. They were not prepared & only provided 1 server for our... More

I went to Souls Restaurant on Saturday afternoon for an early dinner after seeing it reviewed on Check Please Bay Area. I arrived at about 1530, was seated and shortly after the wait staff took my order. I ordered two pieces of fried chicken, which came with 3 sides. That was all very efficient, the restaurant was only 1/2 full... More

If you're craving REAL Soul Food, this is the place to go! They offer buffets on Sunday ONLY: Breakfast and Dinner but the first time we went there we had regular dinner on a Saturday night. We both ordered fried chicken dinners: chicken breasts and several sides for us to share. You really have to be careful with chicken breasts... More
