About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Concord Branch - La Sen Bistro is an offshoot of Berkeley's La Rose Bistro. After many years of serving to loyal customers of theater go-ers and the nearby UC Berkeley patrons, La Rose Bistro transplanted itself to downtown Concord to become Concord Branch - La Sen Bistro.

With the same vision of serving great food, you will enjoy the classic California-French samples of duck confit, salmon in saffron sauce, lamb racks, and escargot - just to name a few. Our great food was recognized by the Michelin Guide in 2007, 2010, 2011, 2012 as well as the Zagat survey. Come join us at Concord Branch - La Sen Bistro for a glass of wine and a taste of California-French cuisine. Cheers to good food and great companies. Bon Appetit!

The food was great, the atmosphere was pleasant and has a local neighborhood feel. The price was reasonable. In Walnut Creek or SF the prices would be at least 20% higher for the quality of food. However, I was even more impressed with the service. I will definitely be going back.

Food is always good here. Thier duck confit is delicious, their ribeye steak delicious, great onion soup and sometimes they have their lobster bisque as a special. Must try but I will tell you their service can be a bit slow.

Only negative is that either the AC wasn't working well enough or the owner decided to keep it low. It was really hot outside and inside was just bearable. Feel bad for Kitchen and wait staff. But we'll be back. Good food.

Delicious food and nice quiet atmosphere, as always. They could have used one more server, but Gary did his best and was attentive. We'll be back.

There were 6 of us, each with different needs, and everyone had a wonderful dining experience. As the host, I was really pleased with La Sen's menu which had something for everyone.

I thought the food was delicious, and was presented nicely. However, they were understaffed for whatever reason and only had one waiter. I'll presume it was a temporary problem.

Great authentic French cuisine with some regional spin. The cilantro pesto dipping sauce is worth the trip. Good value with most all entrees less than $30. Duck confit has been my favorite.
