They will even get up early to eat here on a Sunday morning. So the coffee is great, the food is great, the menu is french and imaginative, the tea is good, the jam is good. Okay its all great. The tables freak me out. One of them is in the window a prime spot for some reason, The other tables seemed set to stare at each other, And then people get their toddlers up to come and eat the french toast. It can be chaos. Not the restaurant's fault, so don't look past your table and enjoy the great food, So little parking.

A group of 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at La Note. We sat inside and it has a lovely, warm and friendly ambiance. The service was excellent and the dinner was delicious. I had the Feuillete St Jacques (puff pastry with scallops, salmon and shrimp), and my dinner partners had the lasagna special of the evening (with sausage). We also shared the spinach salad with nuts and cheese. Nice wine list with prices that are reasonable, plus they had wine by the glass for under $10! If you are going to Berkeley Rep after dinner, they give you 10% off your bill! Beware they do add a 25% tip to the bill, with a party of 4. Altogether, the total price of this superior meal was less than most other restaurants of this caliber. Try it, you won't regret it! It may become one of your favorites!

Arrived 7:50 for 8am opening for Sunday brunch and there was already a line of 15 people there. By 8:30, there were another 20 people or so waiting outside. Go early if you do not want to wait too long. By the way, on Sundays the parking in front is free but is gone fast. The food is great, large enough portions for what they charge.

Delicious breakfast spot in downtown Berkeley. Egg dishes were all well prepared and the pastries/breads were excellent. Good service for this busy place but be prepared to wait for a table on the weekends.

O.K., the best thing about this restaurant may, in fact, be the patio in the back, nicely landscaped and provided with shade (or sun) according to the weather. The inside seating tends to be pretty noisy. The service is very friendly, and the wine list reasonably priced.

Avoid, however, the so-called "salade nicoise" - in what universe does this salad include corn and beets? And there are about 3 olives, and no haricot vertes. The pan bagnat of the day, however, was quite good.

So the best advice I can give you is read the menu carefully to see what ingredients are included, perhaps ask the server what s/he thinks is best, then sip your wine and sit back and enjoy the patio!
