Brunch here was great. The southern French-inspired food is definitely reflected in the extensive menu. As expected, there was a bit of a wait to get a table on a Saturday morning and the place was abuzz with weekenders wanting to start their day with...More

This restaurant came highly recommended and did not disappoint! The portions were generous, the service was attentive, and the food was fabulous! My friends had sandwiches - the albacore tuna salad was the best - and I gambled on the orange marmalade omelette, and won!...More

This intimate French bistro is only open for dinner Thursday-Saturday, but that has repeatedly worked well for us for pre-theater dinners. The vibe is casual; the service is friendly and competent. And the food: reliably excellent! We started with Crostone Au Jambon De Bayonne as...More

From the Nicosia salad to the wines of Provence, LaNite maintains its reputation as Berkeley's best lunch. While not a budget place, portions are quite large and the ingredients and preparation are of the highest quality. Breakfasts are unbelievably good as well are its traditional...More

La Notte is our go-to restaurant when we can't think of anywhere else to or we find ourselves downtown Berkeley with way too many choices and limited decision making power. Fool always well prepared and tasty. A bit noisy on weekends, it's a popular spot....More

La Note is something of an East Bay (maybe Berkeley, most of all) institution. On Shattuck Avenue, in the heart of downtown Berkeley, it's easily reached by pubic transportation (bus, BART) and is a gathering place of significance for faculty at Cal, for visiting family...More

It seems kind of unnecessary to review La Note. The crowd gathered outside the door during brunch hours speaks for itself. It may take a while to get seated (especially if you want to sit on their beautiful patio out back) but they make the...More

I have not been there for brunch, but I would expect long lines. I don't know if you can phone for reservations. In my opinion, nearly any wait is worth it.
