    Enjoy eating outside in the lovely patio when the band is playing. Always have a good meal and good service. My favorite there was the pork shoulder so tender it fell apart. It is no longer on the menu. The brownies are the best. Save time for a walk by the Bay with views of S F, Alcatraz and Angel Island.

    It’s a wonder anyone can find this place! A charming outdoor seating area but only a few tables have umbrellas, so you’ll broil without one. Super minimal staff: when we arrived, one busser, one server, one bartender. Food came out before drinks. Had to ask three people three times for a bowl of water for our dog. The chiliquiles were delicious and made up for the service, and later Wilbur became our server and he was perfect: warm and friendly, attentive, and excellent service.

    What an amazing spot on Treasure Island. Everything on the menu was surprisingly delicious. Best mussels I have had in ages! Beets, duck confit crostini, fries, burger - all really perfectly prepared. Can’t wait to go back for brunch and maybe some baked goods or dessert! Also, the service was very good - both our server and the bartender.

    I had made a Father’s Day brunch reservation a month in advance hoping to have a nice table. When we arrived we asked for a table with shade since it was hot outside and we had a baby with us. We were told that there were no shaded tables available and that the umbrellas could not be moved. So we took our spot in the hot sun and asked to be moved when a shaded spot became available. The service was slow even to get basics like water. Eventually the shaded table next to us opened up but the service was no where to be found so we were not moved and then someone else came to be seated in the shade. Meanwhile I had to get up and walk my baby and dog to the shade multiple times throughout my meal to avoid overheating. I was also disappointed with this season’s menu. I’ve been coming to this restaurant for years and have always enjoyed the lighter menu items like fish and salad. This season the menu seams very heavy, with a lot more meat and cooked items. It was hard to find something refreshing for the hot day. We ended the meal not being able to find our server and having to go inside to pay. I have had amazing experiences here in the past and I sure hope the menu and service can return to what I’ve come to love.

    I would give Aracely Cafe ZERO stars if I could. I received an email 24 hours before our visit, telling me that they were canceling the reservation. When I called the restaurant, they said they were canceling due to a private party - even though I made the reservations a month prior for my niece’s graduation from Berkeley! Who does that?!? I was told I was going to receive a call from the manager, but NOTHING, no remorse on their end. So unprofessional. Aracely Cafe RUINED MY NIECE’S GRADUATION WEEKEND as we WERE NOT ABLE TO GET RESERVATIONS AT ANY DECENT RESTAURANT IN THE CITY! SHAME ON ARACELY CAFE FOR NOT HONORING PREVIOUS RESERVATIONS MADE WAY IN ADVANCE!

    We came on a weekend for a relaxing lunch away from the typical busy neighborhoods in "mainland" SF. It was a great choice. The outdoor space is quiet and beautiful set up with tables nicely spaced around the gravel courtyard surrounded by small trees. They had some umbrellas giving welcome shade on a sunny warm day. The menu was fantastic and the multiple small plates we ordered were exceptional in both presentation and quality. Same with the innovative cocktail menu. Our server was charming and attentive. The biggest negative was the poor timing of cocktails and courses. Although they were only about 50% capacity, we had almost finished our food before the first cocktails showed up, even though they were ordered first. The servers seemed bewildered about which orders were meant for which table on almost every trip out to the dining area. They routinely seemed to wander about looking for which table ordered which plates they had in their hands to serve. A little more focus on timing and table management would make Aracely a real star.

    Mother’s Day breakfast/brunch. Food is excellent! Table was not ready, but that was ok. It did not take long to be seated as there were empty tables. Outside patio is terrific. Bring a hat to shield from direct sun. Tables are grayed metal. Ours needed an extra chair before we could sit. The rose on the table was dead and not removed, so I put the vase on the nearby wall. Our Server was lovely and food was outstanding. My only real complaint was that the table wasn’t cleared when food was done and dishes stacked up. The croissant French toast with papayas.

    Like other reviewers there was an issue with service. The host turned and took us to the table. They were walking really fast and I had my elderly mother with us. I was able to see where they took us but when I mentioned the space is lovely and I have never been here before. They did not return my conversation. They warned us they would be busy and the food might take a while but the service issues were not related to the wait of the food. Our waitress, who was lovely, came up to us just as we sat down not having looked at the menus we asked if we can have a few minutes. She didn't come back for quite a while. We had to go ask the hostess (we were seated out side) if she can come take our order. Our food came out as told a little late but two dishes did not come out and we did not ask about them early on since they told us they were very busy. The waitress then asked if wanted dessert but we told her two of our dishes didn't come out yet. She apologized and then had them out soon after. I believe they forgot we ordered it and never checked back on those items. They did rectify the situation. I would love to go back. The food was terrific (minus the kids menu which my daughter did not like and she eats everything) I would love to try more items. The brussel sprouts were the best I had and the cocktail was excellent as was the scone and other items we tried. The service issue might keep me from returning though.

    Every dish we tried (4 apps; 4 brunch items; 3 desserts) was delicious. Dishes are unique in their ingredients and combinations but tasted excellent. Cheyenne was a great server - engaging, knew every item on the menu, fun. Majority of seating is outside, so beware of rain. (We faced risk but were spared.). Ask for the fire pit, if you can. And, they brought a bowl for our dog!

    The host had to confirm our reservation before seating us, which is fine but there were so many empty tables the entire time. After we were seated the server then didn't come over for about 25 minutes but only after she got the drink order for a table seated after us. Someone else mentioned that service was apathetic and that is probably exactly how I would explain it. The kids meal (chicken strips) was awesome for the $5 price and the tri tip sandwich was fabulous.

    Overall I think Aracely is a gem of a restaurant. A great meeting point between the East Bay and San Francisco. The food is consistently good, the outdoor courtyard is lovely and they sometimes have live music. I also appreciate that they change their menu periodically/seasonally. The only downside is their service, at best, is inconsistent and at worst is apathetic.

    We picked Aracely Cafe because we wanted to bike to treasure island from Oakland and thought it’d be a good place to get a coffee before going back - but it was so much more!!! Incredible food, beautiful setting, fantastic service and just all around a great experience. Aracely is going to be one of our go-to brunch spots from now on.
