A friend took me here for lunch, saying he had heard it was rated "the best restaurant in Berkeley." Wow. That is quite a claim, considering the caliber of dining establishments in the Bay Area, including Berkeley. But we were up for the experience. The atmosphere was casual, the interior not particularly interesting, but the menu offered descriptions of such... More

My friends & I were looking for a late lunch in Berkeley and stumbled upon this place. Having been to New Orleans numerous times the menu was a sight for sore eyes. The gumbo was dark & rich and loaded with Andouille; the shrimp Po'Boy was mounted with lots of tasty fried shrimp and dressed properly. Everything we had were... More

The four of us stopped by for lunch and found the restaurant quite busy and bustling. Oyster po' boy sandwich, cup gumbo, hush puppies, cajun mixed grill, voo doo shrimp quite tasty. Food service was a little slow but maybe that was because place was almost full.

......then try Angeline's Louisiana Kitchen in Berkeley! I had the Voodoo Shrimp, Abita Root Beer (which is actually made in Abita, Louisiana) and Beignets for dessert! Yum! The food was great and the waitstaff very friendly. In addition, there is Cajun music playing in the background while you dine. I would definitely dine here again on my next trip back... More

Love this place and a fun place to take friends. The first time I went was with a friend when we were looking for a place to eat before seeing a movie on Shattuck. Have gone many times since and am never disappointed. I love visiting New Orleans and was happy to find Angeline's. Went for the fried catfish, spicy... More

I have very limited exposure to Creole style cuisine so perhaps my expectations were wrong, but I was hoping for some heat somewhere and found none. The Brussels Sprouts were nicely done, if a little salty for me. I went with buttermilk fried chicken and while it was nicely prepared, the batter had no seasoning at all - I was... More

I visited Angeline's with a friend. Since I am not that familiar with Creole food, I decided to go with something standard. I ordered the Gumbo, which is basically a spicy soup with rice, sausage and shrimp. The Gumbo was remarkably ordinary. I usually have a large appetite but I could not bring myself to finish it. I also ordered... More

Essentially New Orleans! The Decour fits the food and the food is exactly what you would expect from a terrific New Orleans restaurant. We did a walk up for four on the afternoon of a University of California football game. The wait was only 20 minutes, just enough time to go across the street and get a Starbucks. We ended... More

Have tried many dishes on Angeline's menu and they have all been excellent, but I always return to the fried chicken, my husband loves the gumbo and the red beans and rice, and my son has his favorite too - the jambalaya. We always start by sharing the hushpuppies - yummy comfort food. Two drawbacks - It can get a... More

We got here before they opened, went across the street for coffee, returned ten minutes after the opening time and had to wait because they were full.... If that's an indicator of the popularity of this place, it has to be good. Our wait ended up not to be very long and was worth every bit of it for the... More
