In a large, beautiful room, the atmosphere is charming and a welcome alternative to the ten decibel restaurants that are the current rage. The service is exceptional, with employees who are extremely knowledgeable, courteous and obviously enjoy their work. It is also the only restaurant in the neighborhood that one can relax and enjoy their meal without feeling rushed. The... More

My husband and I got a recommendation for this rustic chateau on the edge of Berkeley campus as one of the only sit-down restaurants within walking distance of our hotel. The large dining room had a fire burning in the large fireplace and no background music. In our early 30's, we were by far the youngest patrons. The menu, while... More

You are in a huge 1920's cavernous wood paneled room, with almost silent/whispering servers, and no background music. This sort of restaurant is extinct in America. Small menu, but so fresh it's unbelievable. We had Moules that had been delivered from the dock as we were ordering dinner! Despite its Trip Advisor rating as one of the best in Berkeley,... More

One passes through a beautifully landscaped front yard then enters a gorgeous dining area with leaded glass windows and 2 story ceiling with wood beams. We had 8 in our party and ate in a private room right off of the main dining room. Service was great. The food (contemporary American) was excellent, locally sourced and organic. Wine was reasonably... More

This is an ok place for lunch if you're visiting the Berkeley campus. It's right across from the law school. Food isn't all that inspired, but it's fine. Prices are on the high side. I assume that's because there aren't a lot of options in this category in the area.

During our visit to Adagia we were amazed by their apparent lack of concern that the tables were so sticky that the silverware was actually adhered to the table, and menus put on the table were lifted with a tape-like "wrrrrip" sound. Apparently the cause is something about recycled wood used for tabletops was interacting with the laminate. I asked... More
