Re: “Calavera

A great Uptown venue! The bar offerings, especially mezcal & tequila, are intruiging. And the food, based on their Oaxacan theme, is tasty and creative. Well worth a visit! Beautiful decor and superb food presentation. Wait staff is friendly and attentive.

Re: “A16

The atmosphere and service were spot on and the food was so good!

Re: “The Missouri Lounge

Probably my favorite bar in the East Bay... Would be here all too often if I lived a little closer.

I love that people seem to hate their bartenders... Only had a problem once and it was an honest mistake.

Cheap, heavy pours and good food.

Re: “The UC Theatre Taube Family Music Hall

Honestly, they have the best sound I've heard at any venue in the Bay Area...

A truly beautiful room sonically and visually. The Fillmore of the East Bay with even more cutting edge sound and easier public transit access... Literally two blocks from Downtown Berkeley BART.

Staff is friendly and attentive. Even the food is good.

Re: “Modern Mouse

Providing an Exceptional Local Service for an Overseas Customer

Organising a gift for someone long-distance can be extremely difficult, especially when it needs to arrive on a specific day.

The team at Modern Mouse were able to do that for me without any hesitation. Although the online store had a comprehensive display of items on offer, they went above and beyond by emailing me additional gift suggestions specifically tailored to the occasion.

All of my queries were responded to promptly. After getting in contact, I was reassured that there would be no issue getting the gift sorted out for the date I needed it delivered. Usually when I order a product online, there is a feeling of uncertainty that issues happening throughout the ordering process may cause delays. Instead, I was able to call to discuss any concerns I had, and everything ran smoothly.

I was very satisfied with the smoothness of the delivery process, and the exceptional customer service I received both online and over the phone.

Thank you, Modern Mouse!

Re: “Encyclical Gallery

A really thought provoking show! I really enjoyed seeing the diversity of interpretation of Pope Francis's Encyclical.

Re: “BRIX 581

Going to Brix on a Sunday morning for chicken fried steak has become as natural as getting coffee every morning. Now that they have added the bottomless mimosas I'm a happy camper.

Re: “Catahoula Coffee Company

Real award winning coffee, not just burned beans like Peets. More like McCallums on Solano many years ago when they sold ice cream and coffee. And also, real people, of all sorts, meeting, talking, working on wifi - a great place to hang out.

Re: “The Back Room

What a fantastic space! A cool club with comfy couches, excellent sound and great music. AND you can BYOB for no charge (they don't sell alcohol here).

Berkeley has been missing a smaller, more intimate place for acoustic music since the Freight grew up and became huge, and The Back Room fills this gap with style! I love the variety of music - folk, blues, soul, pop, world, bluegrass, Cajun, etc. - and it has a very chill, friendly vibe.

Re: “Priya Indian Cuisine

Excellent recommendation EBX. I tried Dal Makhani and Palak Paneer today, they were both very good. I wish I had told them to make it hotter but I forgot.

As a Desi I can attest to the quality. More importantly they use good oils and probably use it only once, there is no need to explain this further most people will understand why.

I'll follow up when I try the Southern Indian food. Nice people too and I nicknamed the Owner(?) "Mr. Grumpy." In a nice way of course.

Re: “Norma Meat & Deli

I honestly didn't think anyone knew about this place! I found this place while buying beer one day when I lived down the street. Everything they sell is AWESOME!

Re: “Prima

A great place for great food and wine. The setting is warm and friendly, as is the staff. They also have an joining wine shop that has a wonderful selection.
I feel that everyone at Prima's is dedicated to making sure my evening is perfect. I've been eating here for years and have never been disappointed.

Re: “Millennium Restaurant

I loved the restaurant when it was on McAllister before it moved to Geary @ Jones, and I loved it on Geary too. Over the years there have been many great waiters and personable staff although after a best friend moved away I found myself less often at the restaurant. Now though, now that Millennium has moved to my hometown, I'm generating a new habit again.

Delicious chicken with so many flavors, great Sake Sangria! and Deviled Avocado- on on fresh veggie sides. Don't miss the Brownie at the front door either. -- Great Fish Tacos = ps everything is gluten free!!
