Corso is an outstanding restaurant, even by Berkeley standards. The meal was excellent, the service was superb, and the ambiance was great. There isn't anything on the menu I wouldn't try,. but I would especially recommend the Salsiccia with superb homemade sausage. My wife had the salmon and though it was wonderful as well. And for dessert, it's hard to get better than the chocolate budini. More

One of our "go to" places to eat. We are regulars and fans of Akemi. However, I do have one complaint..... please nix the live music on Fridays. It's out of keeping with the general ambiance and way too loud for intimate conversation. If you must have music then it should be acoustic only. More

I have eaten at Namaste twice. The food and service are excellent in this beautiful restaurant. Once I was with a friend from Bangladesh who stated it served authentic regional cuisine. Although Berkeley is full of great restaurants, the outstanding feature of this restaurant is that it is really, really quiet (due to extremely high ceilings?) so conversation is easy for all patrons at a table for six or eight. Although the truth is that our group was at the restaurant from 6 to 7:30 when there were relatively few patrons so the noise level was low in any event. However I believe it would be relatively quiet even when truly busy. Highly recommended More

Teppanyaki | Berkeley, East Bay

I was very leery of Hana Japan after reading through some yelp comments and prepped myself and my significant other as it was his birthday. We arrived on time for a Thursday evening 6pm reservations. Was accommodated right away when all parties arrived. Had a whole table to ourselves (5 adults, 2 children). Chef John was wonderful! Great show, good service, & good food. Used a $100 groupon certificate (paid $60) rather than birthday meal credit which I determined after seeing the bill and initially opted for the bday credit. The waitress had no problem switching over to option B and my bill excluding tax and tip was $1.20 (total tax & tip $35.00) for 2 adults and 1 child meal. We would definitely go back to Hana Japan. The time we went was also great as we were able to walk to the pier for a short stroll and view of the sunset. More
