The food is delicious! All of their ceviche dishes are fantastic, especially the salmon crudo! The pork chop is intensely salty but the beef is to die for and the ship dish is cooked perfectly.

We are so glad to have this restaurant. The atmosphere and décor of the restaurant is trendy and different. All three appetizers we ordered were excellent, and the different type of margaritas we tried were top notch. Service was excellent and I loved that they brought chips with three very different salsas. The flan we had for dessert was also great. I think we have found our newest favorite place and I can't wait to go back again!

The house Margarita was just okay. The flavor last only the first couple of sips, after that water.

From Our Editors

As the sister restaurant of San Francisco's ever-popular Tropisueño, El Gusano pairs its sibling's devotion to traditional Mexican recipes with the same upscale charm as its posh Old Oakland surrounding. By day, the restaurant acts as a taqueria, dispensing tacos, burritos, and pambazos to hungry lunchtime crowds. Like someone who's been bitten by a werewolf maitre d', though, El Gusano morphs into a full-service restaurant every evening, casting warm, inviting light on tables filled with dishes such as their signature mole poblano. Nighttime is also the domain of the restaurant's bartenders, who shake up hand-crafted margaritas and specialty drinks from their extensive of tequilas and mezcals.
