Will, our waiter was exceptional. We received friendly and courteous service from him. Other staff were also helpful.
The place was known for brunch, however, the kitchen closes at 1pm (the middle of brunch time).
We enjoyed a very nice dinner at Five. My husband is especially fond of their grilled salmon entree and I tried their Fruttii di Mare con Fagioli, a nice seafood stew with grilled bread. We were both pleased with our dishes. The service was very good--attentive and helpful.
When you enter Five, you feel like you're in a different city....a big city and not San Francisco. Five is swanky and urban. I really liked it and look forward to returning. Berkeley needs Five badly. Food was great too.
Took a group of 6 for lunch and couldn't be happier with the decision to go to FIVE. Food, service and space were excellet! I will definitely be back to this spot.
Really nice room in Hotel lobby - elegant - food was excellent! Service was a bit disjointed as they were understaffed but our waiter was very friendly and accommodating even though taking care of the whole restaurant.
Excellent brunch and wonderful service!
We totally enjoyed our New Year’s Day celebration.
We had our New Year's Eve 2018 dinner there and the prix fixed menu was outstanding! Great flavors in every dish, served on slate plate to keep our food warm, original presentation, and in perfect proportion. The only down side was that I felt our server rushed us at the end. He probably had plans to celebrate the new year somewhere, but I can't blame him! We were told that no chef was in charge that night, so bravo to the sous-chef!
This is a place that has had its ups and downs re food quality, but it seems to be on the rise, a welcome addition to the reasonably priced restaurants near the theatre district in Berkeley. We had an excellent lamb roast with accompanying veggies. My husband and I will return.
Menu didn’t match what was on line - neither in price (was much more expensive when we got there) nor food (much more ‘artsy’ food than the burgers we were looking forward too).
