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!

La Sen is our favorite place to eat for any special occasion. The food is always exquisite in presentation and flavor. We are so sad that their Concord restaurant is officially closing after Valentines. Good to know they have the Walnut creek restaurant still to continue the always welcoming and delicious French Cuisine. When we dine La Sen, it is appetizers, salads, wine, main entrees and deserts. Do not deny yourself anything.
Thank you La Sen

Good for a fancy "lunch". They took a while to bring out the complimentary bread but when they did, it was so good. The cilantro dip was different and exceptional. When my daughter asked for more, they happily refilled the bread basket and dip. We had french onion soup and the salmon tartar, both were so good but we were already full at this point. I tasted the vegetable lasagne and it was surprisingly very tasty. I enjoyed my duck confit.

I had a great time with my parents and liked the food. I'm a fan of a crispier confit du canard, but the sauce-y version here is good too!

Food was awesome. Loved it but the service was little slow. It’s ideal for casual gathering but not for business meals when you are on time crunch.

Great food, wonderful wine all at a very reasonable price. My only complaint is that we were seated close to the font door nd it was chilly.

The food was delicious! We had their salade de haricots verts, salade de crave and the entrees were the entrecôte frite and Moules ala creme. Everything was made perfectly.

The service was very attentive!

We’ve got the chicken and a flourless chocolate cake
The bread was perfect French (even with the accent!)
Glad they are opening a new restaurant in Walnut Creek
