If you're in the Bay Area, a must go.
Rathskeller like feel with lots of dark wood and brick/tile. Small, but there's outdoor seating in the back. Everything was close to perfect. The tap list was a bit small, close to two dozen, but everything was superb. The mix was mostly Belgian styles, but there were a few non Belgians. Super fresh, served in the proper glassware, etc., things that have been pointed out in previous posts. The service was excellent and very friendly. If I had to nitpick, the food selection was limited, portions were small, and it was a bit pricey, albeit well prepared and tasty. But hey, more room for beer. I'd go back in a heartbeat, definitely in the top ten of the places I've been to.

Went with three friends.
Great place to get a beer. The atmosphere is good, nothing special, but it's a nice neighborhood-ey joint. Narrow space, nice bar, not much seating otherwise unless you go out back.
Great selection. Belgian-focused, but quite a few Belgian-style and sour beers from around the country. Happy to see Jolly Pumpkin. Bartender was great, giving plenty of suggestions and tasters.
Didn't try the food.
This and beer revolution are the two complementary spots to visit in Oakland.
