The best fried chicken in the bay area. Somehow it remains an underrated gem.

Leon B

This place is nirvana. Saying the food is good is a slap in the face of this eatery. I don't possess the vocabulary to do this place justice. And the wait staff is like a throwback of a happier time. No pretense, just real people serving real food. The atmosphere is so inviting it's ridiculous. I only wish they were open longer. I'd give this place 6 stars if I could.

Great service, even better food! I'm from Texas, and there isn't any soul food in Santa Rosa. Was in town and was craving soul food. Large portions for reasonable prices.

For A Friend For A Long Time ( 20 plus)

I am so glad that I met you

You have made a big impact in my life

And it is thanks to you

Why I remain

Your friendship means a lot to me

Believe me, it truly does

And I just wanted you to know that

From me, you will always find love

Now we are going our separate ways

Maybe never to meet again

As long as our friendship holds true

Our connection will forever stand

We may not have been best friends

But that is just a title

For the kind of friendship we do share

Is more active than it is idle

I am going to miss you

I know we said we would keep in touch

But that is what everyone always says

But it never seems to mean much

So this is why I am telling you now

How much you truly mean to me

Because anything could happen in the future

Tomorrow is something I may never see

Yes, I am going to miss you

And I wish you the very best

And please always remember

That you are truly blessed!

The food was delicious. We had wings and fries. Best wings ever. Got there at 5:30 thinking we were early and the place was full and "hopping". We will definitely return, but probably much earlier.

The service was horrible! They act like the couldn't help you, nowhere to see and the wait was too long. Didn't feel comfortable.

The best soul food in the entire bay area. Huge portions that can't be beat. Authentic food with love in it. Best sides, catfish, and prickly pork chops out.

Scends has been closed since August 2017 so anyone with a review after that is making up reviews (I'm looking at you Laicee B.).

The experience was good except for the waitress/bartender could have been more attentive in servicing the guest.. we had to wait too long to order the food, receive the food..and to close out the tab for the night.. but the place had a good atmosphere had a homely feel to it..the upgrade were a good change.

I ordered 4 wings and fries. Chicken was well seasoned and crispy. Drinks were strong and the butter pecan cake was homemade and delicious. Chill vibe and great service.

I purchased 2 orders to go called the, Aunt Katie and Mama Lynch Special. I took the food to my Recording Session for the Engineers to taste and Wow ! The Engineers minds became very creative after eating from Rob Ben's Thanks Staff for the Great Food !

Great food and service! We shared a bunch of things - fried fish and shrimp, red beans and rice, sweet potatoes, mac and cheese, po boy, shrimp salad. Delicious! All of them! Juicy and perfectly cooked. And for dessert peach cobbler fresh out of the oven, red velvet, and banana pudding. Loved everything and would make the drive from San Jose again!

Holy sh!*. This is the best fried chicken I’ve had in California. The breading is crispy; the meat is fall-off-the-bone tender. The buttermilk waffle was from a brilliant batter, cooked to perfection and buttered just right. The biscuits and gravy are the best I’ve ever had (don’t tell my Grandmamma). The pepper biscuit adds a very mild heat, but packs serious flavor. They have a great selection of beer at the bar—all the standards. Plus, they had some great “fancier” beers on tap. They rimmed my mango wheat beer with a citrus and spice that only improved the experience immensely. Couple that delicious bunch of food with the high quality service & I’m calling this one of the best spots in the east bay. Probably calling myself a new regular too.

Ate breakfast there this morning with my Aunt. She's been before, my first time - and I have to say Pretty pretty good. I ordered the chicken & Waffles. Chicken was moist, good flavor, and huge pieces.

Service was quick with nice servers & informative. Would love to try dinner service and the bar.

Theresa M

The food was excellent! I took my sister there, we didn't have to wait a long time to order as well as we didn't have to wait a long time for our food, I've waited longer at a fast food place. We have found a place to have lunch when she comes to town.

I went on BBQ Tuesday and absolutely loved it. The meat was so tender and delicious. Highly recommended!

Great drink menu... Staff was friendly & down to earth. Food was nothing out of the ordinary. We ordered garlic noodles & 3-way BBQ meat combo. The ribs & mac & cheese was the best part. Meat came out slightly cold. 😑 Now that we've tried it... I don't feel like we need to go back again unless it's for drinks

Courtney J

Food was delicious! Service was great!! Ordered the Steak/ Shrimp fries soooo good!!! Buffalo wings and macaroni is delicious!! Nice serving size...Customer Service was awesome..took a little while for our food but definitely worth the wait!! One of the best restaurants in Oakland..

I could go in for a while, but the short of it is it's nice to experience the "glow up" : food, ambience, and service. The former was good too, but the new changes are noticeable and positive. I WILL be back!

Michelle G

5/12/2019

I was very pleased with the service. Looking from the outside it's a little sceptical but just like a book dont judge it by its cover. Friendly staff, great food, oh and the restroom was CLEAN CLEAN. We were told the wait time was an hour when we arrived on a Sunday around 5:30pm but we we were seated within 20 minutes. The restaurant is small great for family dinner or for a quick bite to eat. They also do call in orders! The only thing I didn't like was online the menu was different from the menu at the restaurant. The waiter informed me that the menu changes daily.

Chicken wings are truly amaaazing. Crispy on the outside, but juicy on the inside. I really like how "clean" the food is. None of that groggy feeling afterward....And the blubbery cornbread. I'm telling you people it's really good.

Food was delicious. The waitress Amber did an outstanding job. I loved the food and the service!

Just a very nice place to go have breakfast. The chicken and waffles so so good. The people that serve you are awesome. I recommend just go eat there yourself.

Service: Welcoming, attentive and efficient

Food: Delicious, prompt and a little pricey

Ambiance: Liked the remodel however the music was entirely too loud! Felt I was yelling across the table.

Additionally, wish wetnaps could have been provided when ordering the fried chicken or gumbo.

Megan C

8/16/2019

I went for breakfast and they have a great menu. The grits are wonderful, eggs are cooked to perfection. There are lots of different breakfast meat options too. The staff is very friendly and the service was quick. We love in the neighborhood and plan to come back for dinner, as we heard the gumbo is great.

Queen K

8/16/2019

My experience was mixed. The service was lacking to say the least ,( the couple at the next table waited 20 just to place an order). But the service staff was very friendly. When you could hear them , because the music was EXTREMELY loud , so loud that conversation had to be put on pause in between songs...though they were playing some good music. The food was REALLY good , even though I told the waitress I was allergic to something and it was still put on my plate BUT the portions were big enough that I ate off of my companion's plate. So you see it was a VERYi mixed meal out.**( This was my experience everyone experience is different)

Meghan M

Came in right before breakfast ended-like 12:15pm lol. The ladies working were so nice, sat us right away and took out order right away. They didn't rush us at all, which can happen. Three food was super good and fresh. Pancakes were hella fluffy and the breakfast potatoes are fire. Mimosas was on point too.

Born & raised in Oakland I have seen a lot of restaurants come & go but I certainly hope this one stays. Not only was the customer service outstanding but the food was even better. I went on "BBQ Tuesday"! The portions they give is worth the money. I am looking forward to returning for the soul food.......Oh yeah the Cadillac Margarita was on point.

Sean K

Fried food. Kool Aid. Bass speakers in the booth seats. Laid back staff. It's going down tonight at Rob Ben's.

Veronica C

Came for my best friend's birthday dinner and let me tell you this place did not disappoint AT ALL. The pricing isn't bad for the portion sizes of what you get and they sure give a lot. Friendly staff and had an amazing time while I was there. Definitely try the gumbo on a day when it's on their menu... It's worth every penny!
