Octavia is the newest restaurant from award-winning chef Melissa Perello. Beautifully defined flavors and seasonally driven cuisine are the cornerstones of Octavia's menu, all in an elegant yet relaxed neighborhood setting.
Chef Perello's daily evolving selections spotlight her commitment to sustainability and the Bay Area's wealth of agricultural resources. Combined with her natural ability in the kitchen, the result is simple and expertly crafted dishes that reflect her fine-dining pedigree and down-to-earth personality.
Named after the restaurant's location, Octavia is an ode to refined but comfortable sensibilities in both food and decor. A seamless blend of original history and modern elegance, Octavia's natural light-soaked, open floor plan evokes a refined dining experience with a unique sense of home comfort. An open kitchen, which faces the 55-seat dining room, highlights the original framework and masonry of the building's 19th-century roots.
In the early evening, the restaurant is aglow with the bay’s golden light, complementing the gorgeous and understated decor designed by Michael Baushke of Apparatus Architecture with a palette of beiges, charcoals and eggshell-inspired schemes.
