Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
We have been there about 7 times over the past ten years. It is great everytime. If you want a fine dining experience in the East Bay it would be my top recommendation. Skip the overly hyped -- and not so great places -- like Chez Panisse and go here instead.
Overpriced and not that good. When in the East Bay go elsewhere.
My new favorite Berkeley spot. I love going for breakfast especially on the week ends if the line is too long at LaNote. The eggs are organic and are served as a souffle with salmon. They are delicious. The sandwiches are almost addictive. But, I go for the smiles from the staff as much as I do the food. They know me by name after a few visits and always want to know what I liked. Go for a date, by yourself or meet a group of friends. It works in all those combinations. My favorite is to go by myself, get a mocha ( coffee is delicious) and eggs to watch groups of friends meet and hang out laughing and talking ( no texting).
I feel ucky I have discovered this little bit of France in the heart of Berkeley.
It makes me happy.
I had a great time. The music has a nice old school back in the day Silks feel. I highly recommend checking out Body Language Thursday Nights at Lukas!
Been going here since the early '70s and it still THE dining experience in the East Bay. Others may burst brightly on the scene, but day in and day out this is still, after all these years, an established level of excellence that sets the standard for the rest. Always something new on the downstairs menu. Excellent wine list (a tad pricey), really good wait staff and a kitchen staff that is happy to give you a tour of the kitchen. Be sure to make your reservations a month in advance to avoid disappointment.
