The legend that rocked American cuisine continues to delight with simple farm fresh goods cooked into complex flavors. Simple elegance


The last time that I was there, 2 years ago, it seemed very tired... there was no ""WOW"" to the food nor the service like at Gary Danko... or another that SHOULD be on your list....

Chez Panisse in Berkeley 7/13/2006

I've been enjoying Alice's labors of love for years, and I've always felt it's one of the highlights of living in this area. I have yet to find such quality at such reasonable prices. The value is amazing, actually. Fresh, locally-sourced, organic, prepared in a tantalizing style. For those who think the prix-fixe is a bit too expensive (from $45 to $85, depending on the day of the week and how elaborate the menu is), the cafe allows you the same quality and the ability to order whatever you want. They also offer a special deal -- a much less expensive prix-fixe if you're in the mood for that. Usually under $30. The salads and appetizers are around $10, and the entrées are in the high teens to mid $20 range. All in all, a great deal, when you consider the menus of so many "nice" restaurants (serving mediocre food) here. It is challenging to get reservations. But this is a function of how great they are, so if you want to have an unforgettable meal, reserve early -- and enjoy! Menus and lots of other info is at more

Chez Panisse is a well-loved dining experience in Berkeley. It is very expensive and with good reason -- the food is thoughtfully prepared with delicious ingredients and they can charge what they do and still pack the place. We called ahead and verified that they could make up one vegetarian and one vegan meal, since the menu is fixed. They also have a great little cafe upstairs. more
