Hidden inside a 150-year-old former Street Railway brick building in the Longfellow neighborhood of North Oakland, Lovely Day is where friends reconnect. The collective vision of Owner Jen McKay and Executive Chef Eric Cross has produced ingredient driven menus and a warm inviting experience. The 25 foot vaulted ceilings inside meet with a courtyard outside to give locals and visitors a place to relax and enjoy the best of Oakland.

We enjoyed our dinner here, the food was excellent and the place had a really nice vibe with the music, lighting, sofa’s etc. I also thought it was a great value. Service was a bit inattentive, but overall I definitely recommend this restaurant and would dine here again.
Lovely day was lovely and the food delicious. The location is awesome and fun inside and out! However, the staff was stretched thin which is a criticism of the times not the restaurant. Hopefully that will change soon.
Beautiful outdoor space that welcomes kids, dogs, and greets everyone warmly. If you have an evening for a relaxed, no hurry meal, just to soak up a little ambiance, this is a great option. The service is pretty slow -- we were there nearly 2 hours for just a party of two, eating a main and a dessert -- but they came by to check on us and because we visited on a Friday we got to enjoy the DJ (it's not too loud - just a great background vibe) and just enjoy. Food and cocktails were good. Not every outdoor table had enough heat lamps, so bring a jacket, but it's absolutely worth your time.
Fantastic food and drinks. Great DJ. Good crowd of folks, young, older, all gender, race, etc. People with kids, no kids. It's a good vibe all around. Feels Oakland!
Loved Lovely Day!
Great restaurant! Super cute decor and super friend staff!
Love this place! Food was fantastic, ambience was wonderful and cocktails were delicious. Our server was lovely although service was slow but I assume that was because they had just recently opened. We will definitely be back!
Dinner made a great day even better 😁
