Great break from the ordinary! We tried Peony again after being away for a few years and was just as wonderful as before. All the standards plus numerous specials bring new adventures. The service was cheerful and very efficient. This ambience is spot on and...More

For the locale and the ambience, you would expect a very fine dinner. We eat here an average of three times a year, coming from out of town, and the food is rarely fantastic. No "wow" at all. Sadly, at times, the food can even...More

A rather old-fashioned Dim Sum house, on the second floor of a modern building with parking below. Lots of interesting and good dim sum, ordered both from a menu and from the usual carts circulating. English a bit challenging at times.

After eating at Koi Palace in Dublin just yesterday, this seemed rather average. The place is standard, large with some chinoiserie. Not too noisy as some of these dimsum places can be. There are dimsum carts but we found it easier to check off what...More

It's very simple, service is okay, food is ordinary, and an expensive tab. There's really not much more to say.

My daughter and I were in the mood for dim sum and decided to try Peony Seafood in Oakland. It’s on the second level of a building with a parking garage underneath. We didn’t have a reservation, and although the restaurant was packed with diners,...More
