Julia's staff is incredibly attentive. They changed head chefs not long ago, and their menu changed a bit at that time. We've been here numerous times lunch and dinner. I recommend the duck, pork chops, and any of their salads. LOVE this quiet, friendly restaurant,...More

Four of us had a delicious and quiet dinner out at this architectural wonder. Great waitstaff and good food and drinks. Also convenient for walking to our concert venue after dinner. The dining rooms are elegantly appointed and quiet enough to converse throughout the meal.

My wife and I had previously dined at Julia’s, and had a very enjoyable dinner. Should you wish to know more, the details are in an earlier review. The meats were all wonderfully done, and I still have fond memories of the gnocchi. More recently,...More

Excellent food. Went with my daughter on my birthday. I ordered the sole. Loved every bite. Had a delicious apple tart for dessert. Served special with a candle. Wonderful atmosphere, food and service.

We live nearby and four of us decided to try this restaurant, a first for us long term residents. One of the reasons is that the food has never been very good, but we learned recently that the restaurant has a new chef and the...More

As members of the City Club we HAVE to eat here at least once per month. The obligation is also a pleasure. While the menu is small and doesn't change as often as I'd like it to (as a regular visitor), everything on it is...More

The very good food and the credible wine are dwarfed by the setting of Julia's, a second floor former meeting room in the exquisitely funky Berkeley City Club, a 1920s-something creation of Julia Morgan, a legendary Berkeley architect (the first female graduate of the then...More
