Chez Panisse Caf�, located in Berkeley, California, offers a wide range of French cuisine in an upscale casual atmosphere. The caf� setting and fresh food provide a comfortable place for a date or dinner meeting. Chez Panisse Caf� has a full bar which mostly features an extensive wine selection.
Try the carrot and rutabaga soup to start out your meal at Chez Panisse Caf�. The menu changes often in order to provide the best that the market has to offer but choose from dinner options like the crispy rockfish with celery root puree or the autumn greens and ricotta ravioli.
The food and wine was excellent. Our service was outstanding!
We moved to SF from the east bay many years ago so don't get to CP as often as we used to. We did go for
dinner several months ago and were disappointed with a lackluster meal. But at the request of out of town guests we went back today for lunch and had the kind of meal that made this iconic place a longtime favorite. Every course we each had was fantastic....in creativity, presentation, and most of all flavor. Everything about our lunch was as good as it gets. Now we'll make a point of getting back there more often as few if any places in the City come close.
Thank you for our wonderful visit with my daughter and my best friend.
Every detail was as expected. Our reservation for 4 was 8:15pm; we arrived a few minutes early and were seated exactly on time. The meal de jour was a light bean & pasta and included nice greens and a very nice dessert.
The others in my party had fish, chicken, and steak entrees and all were pleased.
The service was above average.
Awesome from start to finish
Consistently excellent, innovative food and wonderful service! Delicious!
Magnificent lunch. My 14 year old son said it was the best lunch he has ever experienced. I took my father (80), daughter(10) and son to lunch on a Wednesday. Every dish was superb. Clean plates for every course a testament to that. The simple ingredients in every dish, so well thought out and unique but so fitting and delicious. It went above all of our expectations.
we will be back very soon!!! Fried sage leaves on the chicken to die for. Our waiter was so great, attentive but not overbearing and even brought me a to go box of some of the perfectly salted delicate sage leaves to share with my husband. AMAZING!!!
Second time! Wonderful experience! Lucky we were able to get reservation during our vacation. Will definitely try again next year.
Casual,yet sophisticated without any pretension!
Once again, and old friend delivers. This is I think the most consistently outstanding dining experience in the Bay Area. Good varied menu and excellent execution in a pleasant atmosphere.
