Creative, beautiful, and delicious food is all that they serve here. Full of flavor. Standouts were the smoked ZUCKERMAN potatoes, sour cream, charred scallion, chives; the grilled STAR ROUTE little gem, GRAVENSTEIN apple, avocado, parmesan, wild rice, green goddess; ugly mushroom filled pasta, SHARED CULTURES corn miso butter; and the persimmon cake dessert. We will have to work our way through the rest of the menu on future visits here.
Very nice dinner and overall experience!The plates could have been a little more filled. The dessert cake was a half of a cake so that could have been nicer presented.Food: 4/5
5/5 for ambiance, food, and service. Our group of 6 was seated in the private room in the back. All the food and wine was amazing. Two stand outs for me were the QUAIL and the TROUT. Both so wonderfully cooked and perfectly crisp outside/skin and such tender meat. So amazing we ordered 2 quails. Only thing that I wasn't a huge fan of was the dessert. But despite that, I 100% would recommend and come back.
Have been here twice and this is now one of my favorite spots in the East Bay. When we lived in San Francisco, we loved Octavia - Pomet reminds us of Octavia. The ugly mushroom pasta is an absolute must get!! We bought a few to share the second time. The bread (varies based on season) has also been phenomenal. Also with a variety of salads we've had. Everything is just so so so fresh and full of flavor. You simply can not go wrong!
Was in Oakland and wanted to do some fine dinning, fist time at pomet and decided to take the plunge. Nice environment and very soothing. attentive staff and great service! Ordered the following: Oysters - yummy and fresh! Cod appetizer - had a nice smoky subtle taste - great starter! Quail appetizer- wow really well seasoned and the batter on it was awesome! Trout - main - very crispy skin and tasted fresh! Rib - well cooked and awesome sauce used on it! Mushroom stuffed pasta - one of the stars, very tasty - highly recommend! Olive oil cake - only ding is they bring u half a small cake - but still tasty! Seasonal chocolate oatmeal drink - wow so good, and perfect for the cold weather! Highly recommend- will repeat!
My husband chose this on a whim and I am so glad we went here. I had one of the best meals I've had in a very long time. We started with the starters: grilled lettuce veggie dish and a cod dish. Both were incredible. We then shared an ugly mushroom pasta dish...do yourself a favor and get this dish ! You won't regret it I had the trout and he had the short ribs as our mains. Both were amazing For dessert I had a hot chocolate with melted marshmallow and olive oil cake with plums We were stuffed by the end of the meal. We are definitely returning !!!
Tucked in the narrow building that once housed Homestead, this farm-to-table gem is an impressive concept that highlights the impressive array of Bay Area farms that supply some of the high-end restaurants of Northern California. Reservations were surprisingly easy - booked a few hours early on a Sunday - and I suspect I just got lucky. Food highlights included charred turnips with a sweet soy sauce that ended with me licking the plate, a perfectly cooked short rib, smoked duck, and a perfect olive oil cake. But there were some misses. The quail was over-seasoned (far too much salt), and the snow ice was the one-too-many dish that we just didn't really need. This is a great place for a third date or if your parents are visiting and you want to impress them with how much money you're making in your first tech job.
One of the best meals I've had in a long time. I didn't have high expectations bc I've been burned too many times...Hi Wolf. I can't remember the last time I complimented every dish. This is on rotation for sure.
Fantastic dinner with fantastic service! My friends and I were happy to finally try this place, and it didn't disappoint. Their dishes are perfect for sharing, which is our usual style so we can try different dishes. Favorite dishes were probably the ugly mushroom filled pasta and the crunch salt & pepper quail. We chose to dine outside, which is in a convenient spot away from all the foot traffic and cars driving by.
Everything was soooo good! I highly recommend the ugly mushroom pasta. It was creamy and flavorful on the inside.
So excited to finally try this restaurant! The menu is not the most expansive, which I assumed means they have a focused approach and they certainly do! My friend and I brought our own bottle of wine, though I will say their wine menu looks pretty good and inexpensive. Things we ordered: *potatoes with trout roe - these were delicious! the homemade ranch was great, as was the garlic sauce and the trout roe added a good little pop *hamachi - this was nice and light *salt and pepper quail - this was delicious and perfectly salty, while the quail was actually juicy *duck - I love me some duck, but oddly, this was the least memorable part of the meal *pasta with lamb - this was delicious and I would order this again in a heartbeat! At first glance, I thought there was too much cheese, but I was very wrong, and everything was perfect, including the lamb itself We couldn't skip dessert, so we got tea and coffee, which came with a cute little shortbread cookie, and we also ordered the olive oil cake, and boy was that delicious, and date I say, moist. Absolutely delicious meal and can't wait to return!
Ugly mushroom pasta!
5* This was one of the best meals I have had in the bay area! Farm to table, flavourful, unique, excellent service and great location! Pomet is a new addition to the Piedmont area and it is a gem! They have a great space , both indoor and outdoor seating with a great vibe. They focus on farm to table fresh and innovative cuisine and you get a sense of that in their decor, the menu and when you chat with the extremely kind and friendly staff. I found it interesting how they highlight the farms where the ingredients come from and are proud to serve seasonal specialties with a twist! To me this is California cuisine at its finest! For starters we ordered the Goddess salad 10/10 which was delicious, crunchy and so flavourful, the Brioche 12/10 which tasted like buttery pillows of heaven... I could eat these everyday , the Crunchy quail 15/10 which was extremely flavourful, perfectly cooked with an asian fusion twist and was just delicious! We also got the potatoes and they were delicious with a perfectly seasoned yogurt sauce 10/10 and the Albacore which was refreshing and served with succulents.. yes succulents! For the mains we tried the Duck confit noodles 10/10 which were just delicious with a very unique combination of scallions and parmesan, the Ugly mushroom pasta with miso butter which was such a hit at the table with a delicious miso mushroom flavour and a crunchy finish 15/10. My friends tried the Duck , Pork belly and the Trout which they absolutely loved so will have to save that to try next time! The presentation of all the dishes was just amazing and even though I should have taken photos, we were so impressed with the food that everyone ate everything very excitedly so it was all gone, fast! For dessert we tried the Red bay coffee and the olive cake with plum 10/10 which had a chewy almost mochi like texture, so good! We also got the Pear eclair which was very unique and had praline crunch to it 10/10. We completed our meal with complimentary shortbread cookies and a fresh Pear which was the perfect way to round up all the local flavours we had just sampled. They provide blankets for outdoor seats and will hopefully have heaters soon. The indoor seating is very cosy and we got to chat with the extremely talented chefs Alan and Sara after our meal! The restaurant owner also kindly came by and said hello and talked to us about her farm and how they work with the freshest fruits and ingredients everyday! The evening was absolutely lovely, the prices are on the higher side but perfect for the quality of the food in my opinion. I am already planning when to go back next to indulge in chef Alan and Sara's new creations !! Must must visit if in the area!
This is a gem of a new restaurant on Piedmont Avenue. They use fresh ingredients, many from their own farms. The ambience is incredible. The owner comes and greets her customers. The food is incredible. Highly recommend patroning this restaurant
The best you can get from farm to table, especially for dinner! Make reservations! Perfect spot for date night or catching up with friends. Relatively small, I recommend keeping groups under 4. The menu is seasonal, so I can't give you a must-try list. Everything we had was delicious. Quail and codfish were the favorites. Shinko snow dessert was a surprise, I really enjoyed the Shinko. Try the protein dishes and pick a few from the starters to share.
