Wood Tavern Deliciousness

Hi guys, I know it has been a while since my last post, I’ve been super busy starting my new job, and going to tons of summer weddings!  Roger and I celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary on Monday, so exciting!  We had a perfect romantic dinner at Wood Tavern in the Rockridge district of Oakland to celebrate.  We had the best service, AMAZING food, and even though neither of us told them it was our anniversary, the table next to us told them. Our server surprised us with 2 candles for 2 years together in our delectable dessert.  I definitely want to go back, there was so much on the menu that I need to try.  If you are looking for a great place in Oakland, we highly recommend, just make sure to make a reservation way ahead of time if its a weekend dinner, for a Monday night, I made the reservation the day before and it was fine!  Below are pics and descriptions of our lovely meal…
