The best steakhouses in Oakland 2019

When it comes to enjoying a good steak in Oakland, you can be hard-pressed for choice. We’ve narrowed it down to three for your convenience: Galeto, Kincaids, and Belcampo.


According to the vast majority of reviewers on Trip Advisor, the food here is absolutely delicious. The side dishes are fab as well. The steak is so tender it melts in your mouth, and the staff is helpful and friendly. It’s a great place for a date (romantic atmosphere), but it’s casual enough for a dinner with family and friends too.


Kincaids has 5 locations in the US, and the best restaurant is in Oakland, as luck would have it. It serves delicious steak, but also a variety of fish and seafood for those looking for something a bit different. It’s a great place for a casual lunch or dinner, but fancy enough for a date or business meeting. All the steaks are served with butter, fresh market vegetables, and your choice green onion potato cakes, parmesan-sprinkled fingerling potatoes, or mashed Yukon potatoes. The most delectable options: the 12 oz. New York steak, Filet Mignon, or 40-Day Aged American Wagyu Sirloin steak.

Belcampo Restaurant & Butcher Shop

Finally, this is place serving delicious, top-quality, compassionately and sustainably raised meat. Beef empanadas, dry aged burgers, or an Argentinean mixed grill – you’ll never want for choice. We love the beef tartare – a juicy concoction of minced beef sirloin with egg yolk, caper, shallots, and grilled bread. We also recommend the lamb tartare – minced leg of lamb with parsley, harissa, and flatbread.

Those looking for something unique would do well to choose the beef carpaccio – sirloin with red onion, crispy capers, pecorino, lemon, arugula, olive oil, and grilled bread. Finally, a good choice for a bigger group is the skewer dish with your choice of beef heart, leg of lamb, or chicken thigh.
