    The Fish and Chips were by far the best I have had in the area. Great service, great food, they are premium prices as you are at a great location on the water in a very nice hotel but if you're looking for a nice evening out but not having to go all the way to San Francisco, go to Berkeley Boathouse. You can park in their parking lot just make sure to get your ticket validated upon paying your bill!

    Overall a very meh experience for a hefty price tag. Many things on the menu unavailable, but not told to us until we were placing orders. Food was just ok. Even though we had a reservation, they were not prepared for our party of 5 and pushed together two different sized tables in the most unappealing part of the restaurant. Won't be returning.

    The food was good. The kitchen forgot to cook our food and so it took 1:30 hrs to get our food. The place is nice but in a double tree hotel so ambience is a bit hotel lounge though the view is beautiful.

    Restaurant was hard to find, poor signage. No utensils, had to ask. No sugar or cream for coffee, had to ask. Very limited Sunday brunch menu, not like the regular menu. Had expected a lunch menu. Poached eggs were cold. Left disappointed.

    There didn't seem to be enough waitstaff. It was very busy, as might be expected on Easter. But even so, the few servers were polite, friendly and helpful. The food was good. My omelet was wonderful and they kindly substituted fruit for potatoes. Some in my party would have liked some low carb options like salad or grilled veggies. One person complained the potatoes were greasy. The Boathouse normally has a seafood roll--but not at brunch. That was disappointing. Ambiance was great--on the marina on a sunny day was lovely. It's hard to reach the restaurant with question. Their voicemail says they will call back. They didn't in my experience. A lot of the items were quite expensive. Many could easily be made at home.

    We have been here before many years ago when we lived in the Bay. We were attending a function nearby and wanted to get some delicious cioppino. We ordered the calamari fritti, which was soggy and not even lightly crispy. We also had the delicious chicken Wings. I ordered a tall Cranberry juice with fresh squeezed lemonade, but they added fake lemon juice. They had a whole bowl of Lemons and limes. We shared the cioppino, the crab legs were fresh and delicious. Very little stew but they did give a nice toasted bread with it. We ordered the creme brulee, which was completely charcoal black and left a bitter gas taste in our mouth. The waitress was great, and did have them remake it but I lost our appetite for it. The ambiance was perfect. We were seated by the window, and watched the sunset. From the hostess to the wait staff, it was great. Sadly, our meal wasn't what we remembered.

    Made reservations for The Berkeley Boathouse to try it out. We were expecting a nice view and good seafood. They placed us in the middle of the restaurant when there were not many other diners, the shrimp and salmon were undercooked. The service was accommodating, but it took a lot of repeating for the orders to be understood. Both my husband and I got stomach aches. Will not be returning as it was mediocre at best and made us sick.

    The Berkeley boathouse has definitely passed its prime. This was our first time dining there and we did based on previous reviews. However the food was good not great and definitely not worth the price tag. Glad we visited but not going back there again. Also parking is validated but if not, it’s costly.

    Pleasant Ambiance, Average Food I recently visited the Berkeley Boathouse for brunch and overall, it was a pleasant experience. The scenic surroundings and friendly staff added to the positive atmosphere. However, the average taste and flavor of the food left me wanting more. Additionally, the connection to the hotel gave it more of a conference center vibe than a charming marina boathouse. Despite this, it was a lovely experience overall.

    The food is less than subpar and the drinks are less than that. Super expensive for a cafeteria ambiance. Horrible experience.

    I was there for brunch and had an omelet with asparagus, and breakfast potatoes. It was the best omelet I've ever had at a restaurant.

    The Cioppino was very disappointing. It was mostly mussels, no scallops, a few clams, a few small shrimp, a few small morsels of fish. There were some crab legs but no fork to pry the meat out. The ribeye steak and salmon were fine.

    The quality and preparation of menu items was over the top A+. In particular the salad was simple yet delicious and lamb chops were melt in your mouth goodness. Vegetables a little too al dente for my preference.

    We had 4:30 reservations and did not have dinner served until 5:45 and it was cold… under staffed … great location . Wish our experience was better.

    This is the report from my brother and family, as we were ill we were not able to attend. I am disappointed since this was the place I suggested We were there for Christmas Dinner. The Hostess didn’t arrive until after 3:31. No one was there until 3:29, and there was quite a line. Happy to be second in line. Weren’t asked for order until after 4. Soup arrived, but the entree was an hour after that. It was after 6 when desert was done. The food was good, portions large, but the service was just terrible. It looked like there was only one poor waiter, and the kitchen must have been overwhelmed. Too bad. We will not be back.
