We have used Tri Lu's for the full service Spa treatment a couple of times (last minute gifts) and my husband and I felt pretty much the same after redeeming our coupons. First off the pedi and mani is OK, not top rate. Secondly, the staff can be very chatty which is a drag when you're trying to chill. Third and the biggest drawback is that they can never seem to get a Masseuse to honor your gift certificate, (we ended up calling for several weeks to set an appt for the full service. Lastly, when you do get the facial and massage in the private back room, the staff conversations going on in the salon area are SSSOOOOO LOUD you can't really enjoy the facial or massage. My advice to Tri Lu's is get a Masseuse who can be on call so you can honor the gift cards you sell and tell the staff to quiet down so customers can enjoy their spa treatment. That's not too much to ask is it, maybe then you'll get better reviews.
I love this place. I remember attending the free concerts in the park, what a great way to spend your summer. For the concert in the park you must go early for street parking as it gets really packed as the day begin. Make sure you bring your blanket, chairs and ice chest full of beer, wine and lunch. They have a great selection of music for the summer concerts from , jazz, R&B, Rock and more. It's also where I had my wedding reception and it was a blast, the perfect place to have a wedding or reception or both. I did a both reception and wedding for my Event company VIP Errands and Events and it was so romantic. They had the place from 7AM-4PM.
Elve's has some of the best tasting BBQ in Oakland.
The ribs are very meaty and well seasoned, the greens are great, almost better then mine. The yams were so sweet and tasty. The BBQ chicken was very tender and the hot links were perfect.
The place is c lean and the cutomer service is excellent and not to mention the reasonable fees, $15.99 for the two way combo meal which is two meats and two side and one muffin or garlic bread. I don't reccomend the garlic bread it's not good, go with the muffin.
Everthing else is great!
This place is great! The ribs are so good that you don't need Bar B Q sauce on them. The chicken Garlic pizza was good as well. We also had the patatoe salad an their mac n cheeses it was really good and big enough to feed five people. They gave us a free salad which was the best ever and a free cookie. The quality of service is A+ And they deliver. I know this place is going to be around for many years to come. You gotta try Popo's Pizza.
