This was my second time at La Note. Each time the food, service and total experience was excellent. We also liked the live musician playing Flamenco guitar.
my reserved table was given away. my entree arrived with the appetizers despite specifically mentioning dish was being ordered ahead of time because of long prep time req'd and my date had not even arrived when I first ordered. Seafood stew was completely overcooked. Perhaps La Note should not pool all tips and the waitstaff would be more motivated to listen to the diners requests.
I've eaten here for breakfast and was quite impressed. I am said to say that I was left somewhat underwhelmed by the dinner food.
We had another amazing meal at La Note. The menu is always a delight and there are specials on the chalk board. The service was very good and attentive.
Horrible manager- very rude and sarcastic when we requested for a small accommodation on the bright spotlight lighting on our dinner table
I recently had the Daube Provencal entree at La Note; the dish was outstanding - a beef stew that was moist, tender and tasty. It was not a surprise since I have dined there numerous times, and the experience always merits repeating.
Authentic Provencal cuisine in a friendly and casual French cafe.
Food is well priced. Kind of French/Italian provincial.
Flavor is great. This place is simple home food fare.
This restaurant has excellent food with many tasty dishes available. It is also located right in the heart of Berkeley. We plan to go back again soon.
My husband liked his beef stew order but I hated my scallop and shrimp in crusty pastry. Large service fee of 20% which included only a partial tip was unexpected, but I was told many restaurants are doing that. Service was great and it has a nice ambiance. I just ordered wrong thing. Breakfasts are outstanding here.
Such a charming and delicious spot. It felt like we were in paris
Wonderful spot and wonderful experience! Great service, delightful ambiance, yummy food. This is the most charming, lovely little bistro. I live in the food mecca that is wine country and would give anything for a spot like this close to home!
Chicken dish was rather dry & butternut, sausage, veg lasagne had mashed potatoe texture. Otherwise, appetizer & pasta dishes were good. Very tentative service.
Food was fine. Service was fine. Owner was incredibly rude. She aggressively wanted us to change tables 2/3 of the way through our meal to accommodate a group of her friends. It left a really bad taste. Very impolite.
Went with girlfriend for dinner before a movie. A little pricier than usual for me, but definitely worth it.
La Note is a real gem. Ambiance enhanced by an accordian player playing romantic music in the background, great wait staff, scrumptious food, reasonable prices. Great for a date or to share a meal with friends of family.
Delightful place with very authentic French food. The mussels were amazing and my date highly recommended the “steak frites”. Will definitely return.
First time at La Note, chosen for its convenient location near Cal Performances at Zellerbach! Very good food indeed by the standards of the south campus restaurants. Seems to be a 'hang out' for local people a little older than students. Friendly and prompt service. Comfortably scruffy. When we arrived, the noise level was moderate despite the tuneless strumming of a guitarist at the side of the room. However, by the time we were actually eating, the noise was somewhat distressing; we could converse only by speaking very loudly as everybody else was doing. Restaurant noise is destroying the restaurant dining experience in the USA; we've just come home from three weeks in Spain and Italy, and we can testify that even crowded restaurants do not need to be painfully noisy.
The Bouillabaisse didn't have very much flavor although it was packed with plenty of seafood.
