The building and ambience was very american with a hint of mexico. The food was delicious and the selection was very nice. Menu is a-la-cart with great selections. Upscale in the heart of Berkeley which surprised me. Very unassuming from the outside. A very nice...More

I had dinner in the place with friends. I was very excited about the fire wood grill but disappointed about the steak which wasn't tender. Very busy place. They have very good cocktails. Not much to talk about.

Coming from So. Cal and looking for a Mexican restaurant near UC Berkeley, I came across this delicious restaurant. Not a typical south of the border Mexican restaurant with combinations on the menu. Actually it serves small plates, a long list of tequilas and un-complimentary...More

We just had a couple of small plates, and drinks. I concur with the previous answers, although I will say that we had dinner at another restaurant in Berkeley that cost even more, and we wish we had eaten at Comal instead!
