We visited this eatery before the Dobs-Spurs NBA playoff. Old style place. Classic floor, side-booths, reminds one of traditional, historic restaurants. Walls are adorned with antique black/white photos depicting local visual history. Monday, (all day) oysters for $1,00 each. Nice touch!, Before the 530pm tip-off,...More

Luka's isn't a large place, and it was pretty loud inside. However, the food was outstanding! I was with a party from work and our food was beautiful as well. The menu had a good amount of variety. I'd definitely go back!

Luka's is a very popular bar/restaurant in downtown Oakland. It is close to 19th St. BART and it is clearly a local favorite. It has great ambiance, especially for the younger crowd. Great bar, good food, etc. It is a high-quality Bay Area establishment. It...More
