Can my flight please be delayed? I loved it. From the moment I arrived - the ladies made me feel comfortable and brought me a drink swiftly and I went right to the food and enjoyed the yummy selection.


This is a great little lounge will an awesome full bar. Food selection is great, especially during lunch. Nice views of planes and very comfortable seating. What more can you ask for?


Very happy with my visit. Loved the contemporary look, excellent food options, and plenty of comfortable seating.


Just OK especially since OAK doesn't offer much else. Service was meh and I was the only one in in the early morning. No coffee brewed was a major FAIL at 8:30am.

We were refused access today upon arrival to Oakland after a long, airline delayed day. They said they don't allow access for arrivals, only departures. (Found out later they were wrong.)


Just like Oakland airport, this lounge is a "pass it by", the food was not replenished, the services were slow, and I was poured the smallest glass of wine in my life. I could go on ...


The food and service was great, also the wifi. But the place was small and it was really crowded.


Nothing special. Arrived around 540am for early flight. No food options except cereal and yogurt. Service almost nonexistent. Worth a stop if you have layover.


Decent lounge option. Quiet, comfortable, abbreviated but quality food options.


Decent food and drinks. Only problem is it is a small space and feel very cramped.


Great value when you are in all day meetings and need a place to work. On a Monday, quiet in the AM and then around noon, folks start arriving for a BA flight. Food options rival AA Admirals lounges.


They now allow AMEX access. Great service from the staff & peaceful. Would love to see sustainable sparkling & still filtered H2O option to fill personal H2O bottles instead of of plastic bottled H2O.


Not bad! Decent food, chill space. The big issue for me is the staff had no idea what is in the food, so if you have food allergies beware.


Nice to have a lounge in OAK. Food is above average: mushroom polenta, prosciutto/cotto sandwich, pita chips, etc. Lack of restrooms is only disappointment.


Pretty neat place although I wish they replenished the food more often. It took them 30 minutes to refill the soup and Mac and cheese that was completely out.


Very new and comfy. Good food too! No bathrooms which is a bummer, but a very nice lounge.


Great spot but this place gets crowded fast. It’s a small lounge so seating is limited compared to many other lounges. They have great food options like sandwiches and some hot food. Worth a detour.


Very nice lounge. Well stocked food and drink selection. Was not crowded at 4 on a Saturday. Kind and attentive staff.
