Had dinner with work colleagues. Didn't know much about it, so we appeared without a reservation. They accommodated us, though in a tiny table, only about 2 feet from the guitarist.

Despite all these, these small things, I would gladly return. The food was delicious. Had soup of the day followed with the Feuillete St Jaques, a puff pastry filled with salmon, scallops and shrimp. Highly recommended.

Service was good. One note - no alcohol license, with a very high corkage fee. Also, they automatically add 20% service fee for all, no matter the size of the party.

My friends and I went here on a Saturday. There was about a 15 minute wait. We were so excited because we'd seen pictures of the food and it all looks amazing. I ordered the pancakes with the rasberry swirl, they got the french toast and home fries. The presentation of the food was great, and the location and setting is fabulous, but the food was just good. I'd go back, but I wouldn't order the same thing again.

This charge has nothing to do with the food. Berkeley passed a minimum wage hike. The 20% is like a tip for all employees. We were then invited to add extra for our waitress.
The food was tasty and well presented. My husband and I split a green salad and a Charcuterie and cheese plate. Plenty for us. The bread was wonderful Our waitress was attentive.
