    The views are nice, but that’s about it. Food is sub par and not worth the price at all. I ordered the avocado toast and it tasted like grocery store pre-packaged avocado on soggy bread. My husband had to send back his eggs Benedict because the yolks were hard. The whole point of eggs Benedict is a runny yolk. Overall not worth it, won’t be returning.

    Our sever Dawa was a star - this gal is really amazing and so sweet. The place was a bit dirty. Our drinking glasses when we sat down had food on/in them and there was a lot of food debris on the floor under our table upon arrival. Food was good. Drinks were inconsistent. While service was slow, Dawa was lovely and so great with us. I think we will come back but the place could use a proper thorough cleaning, for sure.

    We enjoyed a nearly empty patio on a cold weekend morning and it was delightful! The eggs Benedict were good. Unfortunately, the bar was closed so alcohol was limited to mimosas and bloody Mary’s. I’d love to go back but I’m sure the patio gets very busy when there’s nice weather.

    This was our first experience dining at the Berkeley Boathouse. One of us just had a birthday and another was just about to have one. There were 4 of us and we all ordered different dishes and shared so we all could taste a wide range of items on the menu. The fried calamari appetizer was delicious as were all the dishes we ordered. The waiter was from Hong Kong and quite friendly and even funny. When he heard of the birthdays he gave us three different desserts on the house and all were very tasty. At the end of the meal we met the chef, who was from the Philippines, as were two of us, so we had a good conversation. All in all it was a great experience.

    I was pleasantly surprised at my breakfast experience at the Berkeley Boathouse at the Doubletree. Had the garden omelette and potatoes which was delicious. Starbucks coffee. Staff were super friendly and attentive. Nice view of the harbor. They have a nice looking bar - again, overlooking the harbor. There is a nice outdoor deck. Lobby and bathrooms are very clean and attractive. Parking is pricey - would be best to park outside the hotel and walk in. Will definitely return.

    The bartender was awful, rude and inaccurate. When I told him that the drinks I ordered were wrong, he got extremely loud with me, distracted every table around us and did nothing to rectify the drink situation. How dare you raise your voice at a guest? I didn't pay to come here to be talked to like that- tall greasy man.

    I would go back even though the ambiance could have been improved. We sat outside on a Saturday night. The food was tasty and the waiter was kind and attentive. The main issue for us was that the band was just way too loud. Another thing that was a bummer was that there’s such a gorgeous view and there was a small cruise ship docked right in front of the restaurant obstructing the entire view.

    We ate outside on the patio at a time of year where we started with the heat on, but then the fog burned off and we needed the shade umbrellas. Both times, the staff were so accommodating. The service here is superb! I wish they had a longer cocktail list at brunch (they only offer a Bloody Mary or mimosa), but the food menu is eclectic enough for everyone to find something they want.
