Great French- style food

Dishes were big and plentiful- the eggs, coffee and mimosas were great! The service was attentive and friendly.

We walked in without a reservation at 8pm on a Saturday. We were seated immediately. The young lady waiting on us was kind and eager to please. The wine list is small and designed to represent a low price point. You get what you pay for which in this case was $30 bottle of a characterless Chardonnay blend. Served in... More

I had no need to be apprehensive about planning an important dinner for 20 guests at a distance by email alone. The pre-dinner communication was helpful at every stage. From the minute my guests entered we felt welcome, and service was attentive. The long table against the wall worked fine. Everyone enjoyed their menu choices, and the wine was exceptionally...

As far as brunch goes you can't of wrong with La Note. Amazing breads and pastries paired with the best eggs in town with a side of great coffee. You can't go wrong in this place. Be sure to be there early cuz there's always a line.

Last minute choice for a per concert dinner at the Zellerbach. My wife enjoyed her lemon ricotta raviolis. I had the chicken with mushrooms. Very tasty. Good service too. Very authentic French food and atmosphere. Check out the beer and wine list, interesting choices. Moderate prices and very popular.

We dined outside so I can only speak of that experience. It was wonderful relaxing in the old wooden chairs as if we were in someones backyard, but with a lot more people and energy around us. The service was very friendly, attentive but not distracting. My husband raved about his chicken sandwich, on the other hand, my ratatouille didn't... More

La Note is a right place to go if you want to not be greeted, ignored, and be provided a table even if you make reservation one week in advance for your birthday!!! I made a reservation online and received confirmation one week before. I even mentioned I would be celebrating my birthday with my son. I asked them if... More

I am a picky breakfast eater. La Note had the best coffee, pancakes, and potatoes I've had in a long time. I would strongly recommend this restaurant!

Hadn't been to la note for breakfast in a few years, so decided to go again. It was as good as I remembered. Had the basket of pastries that were very fresh and yummy! Raspberry jam is awesome. Ordered pommes de terres, French toast, and Rosemary garlic home fries. We split it between three of us and it was sooo... More

This is my favorite brunch place in Berkeley and I used to go there all the time. Given the excellent food and nice ambiance many people typically had the same idea. The prospective guests would huddle on the street or return after 30-45' to claim their spot. If they were lucky, they would get to sit in the garden. Once... More
