Oakland/Berkeley restaurant recommendations for my 28th birthday dinner with my mom?

emmafoodie | May 6, 2014 03:18 PM

We've gone to Rivoli for my birthday the past few years, and went to Chez Panisse Cafe for her birthday recently. Both restaurants are lovely, but I want to try a new/different spot for my birthday this year.

I think I've narrowed it down to Plum or Pizzaiolo, but I can't seem to make up my mind. I've never been to either restaurant before, so I'm just basing it off of online reviews. Does anybody have any thoughts or additional recommendations that could help sway me?

I'm just looking for delicious gourmet-ish food, a nice atmosphere, & good service. Something special for my birthday, but not over the top; something on par with Rivoli or Chez Panisse cafe wold be great.

Thanks in advance for any recommendations!
