You have just found Oakland’s best kept secret. The Terrace Room is known to many as a little gem, tucked inside The Lake Merritt Hotel with panoramic views of the mesmerizing Lake Merritt. The beautiful, Art Deco building was built in 1927. Then it was a trendy hot spot, featuring Big Bands and dancing, including Count Basie. Today we welcome you to come visit this historic room while enjoying fresh, local and seasonal items.
Our philosophy is “Local First.” We make every effort to use local organic farms for all our produce and dairy. Our beef is from the north coast and our seafood is always from sustainable sources.
