How does it work?

Selecting the right restaurant can be really difficult, especially when you would like to find a new one. We analyzed 31320 Oakland restaurants on Yelp and Google, 3104661 Oakland restaurant reviews, and 1904 lists and articles – looking closely at what Visit Oakland, Do The Bay and Zagat had to say – and applied our Feastfox magic. For example, we considered Visit Oakland - Best Places To Get Ice Cream In Oakland, Do The Bay - The Bay's Best Ice Cream Spots and Zagat - 11 Must-Try Ice Cream Shops in San Francisco as we sourced this ultimate list. As restaurants continue to adapt to COVID-19, you can trust us to show the latest information on which restaurants are open and how with our real-time data recommendation engine. Since Feastfox gets no payment for showing these restaurants, you can trust the restaurants in this list. These ten options are sure to delight.
